I don't given that the whole reason Mandalorians even exist were to give a background to Boba Fett and later Jango, Clone Army. Then you. Boba Fett is a fictional character and bounty hunter in the Star Wars franchise. In Episode V: Boba helps Jango escape from Obi-Wan Kenobi, but later at the Battle of Geonosis, witnesses Jango's death by Jedi Master Mace Windu. He even indirectly instigated Anakin and Padme's relationship with his failed After Jango Fett was killed in the battle on Geonosis, Boba Fett.
Each clone was able to engage in target practice, and they all missed their targets—except for Boba who was able to use the skills his father taught him to his advantage. Later, while on a tour of the ship, Boba slipped away from the other clones and found his way to Windu's quarters, where he quietly installed a bomb that would be triggered by a laser tripwire in the doorway.
Windu did not enter his quarters, however, but a clone trooper did, killing the soldier in Windu's place and forcing the entire ship into alert status. Sing instructed Boba via comlink to sabotage the Endurance's reactor core, thereby killing everyone on the ship, but Boba was reluctant to kill everyone. His only goal was to kill Windu. Nonetheless, Boba did as instructed, sneaking away from his fellow clones once again, before being caught by a clone trooper who called for security.
The two engaged in a brief scuffle near the core, before Boba was able to stun the clone with the trooper's own blaster.

He also shot at the core command console. With the Endurance critically damaged, the crew began to abandon ship.
Boba, whose identity was not yet discovered, and the other young clones were sealed into an escape pod and jettisoned into space, but Boba sabotaged the pod in order to separate himself and his fellow pod inhabitants from the other escapees. The pod was intercepted by Slave I, led by Sing and Bossk, which revealed Boba as the traitor who destroyed the Endurance.
Boba was given the choice to either stay with the clone cadets or leave with the bounty hunters, and Boba somewhat reluctantly chose to leave with the bounty hunters. After leaving the escape pod, Boba and the other bounty hunters, including Castas, made their way to the nearby planet Vanqorwhere the Endurance had crashed after the explosion.
Once there, they killed several clone troopers and captured Admiral Kilianthe ship's commanding officer, as well as Clone Commander Ponds and another officer. Hoping to set another trap for Windu, Boba rigged his father's old helmet as an explosive on the ship's bridgewhich would be detonated if Windu came looking for any survivors.
The Jedi Master, with Skywalker, arrived shortly thereafter. The helmet exploded just after Windu noticed it, and remembered that Jango had a son—deducing that Boba was the one attempting to kill him. Windu and Skywalker did not die in the ensuing explosion, but were caught within the rubble of the quickly-deteriorating vessel. Some of his companions objected, however, believing that their three prisoners were already enough to earn a sizable fortune from Count Dooku if they were turned over to the Separatists, but Sing sided with Boba, and the team set out to find Windu's body.
As they entered the ship, they encountered R2-D2Skywalker's personal astromech droidwho attempted to slow their advance by throwing debris at them and closing doors in their path. Unable to make it to the bridge, Sing made the decision to use Slave I to destroy the remainder of the Endurance, ensuring that Windu would perish. Before using Slave I, the bounty hunters overheard an explosion caused by R2-D2, who had been attacked by gundarks and used one of the Jedi starfighters to kill a gundark.
The bounty hunters believed that meant Windu had survived and jammed all communication, hoping to prevent the Jedi from requesting help.
R2-D2 was able to escape in the other starfighter, however, and survived a brief firefight with Slave I before jumping to hyperspace for Coruscantwhere he successfully found help at the Jedi Temple and was able to bring a team of Jedi and clones to rescue Windu and Skywalker.
The bounty hunters, meanwhile, decided to use the hostages to lure Windu into a trap. Sing told Boba to personally execute Commander Ponds during the transmission, but he refused, as his goal was to kill Windu rather than other prisoners. Sing executed Ponds on her own, jettisoning him into space, and Boba's relationship with her and the other bounty hunters began to deteriorate. Boba objected to the treatment of the other prisoners as well, going so far as to show compassion by providing them with water.
Ohnaka declined to help her if the Jedi arrived on Florrum, but he also vowed not to stand in her way. Castas, however, contacted a fellow bounty hunter on Coruscant and offered to provide information on Boba and the others.
Sing overheard his conversation and executed him, leaving Boba horrified as he began to realize he had made a mistake in teaming with the bounty hunters against Windu. Despite Castas' betrayal, it was his transmission to Coruscant that allowed the Jedi to discover Boba and the others on Florrum, as Tano had overheard the transmission. The two Jedi arrived on Florrum shortly thereafter, where Sing attempted to ransom the prisoners.
Both sides ended up attacking one another, with Boba holding a blaster to Koon's head and Tano holding a lightsaber to Sing's throat.
The bounty hunters created a diversion and attempted to escape, but Boba was captured while Sing fled on a speeder. Koon interrogated Boba, who refused to disclose the location of the hostages despite his reservations about their treatment.
Ohnaka was able to convince Boba to tell the Jedi, however, by saying that Jango would have wanted his son to do the honorable thing. The hostages were rescued, while Sing managed to make it to Slave I and begin to flee, but Tano clung to the ship and damaged it enough to cause a crash.

Before the release of the Star Wars prequel trilogy, Daniel Keys Moran developed a backstory for Fett in which he was once named Jaster Mereel,  a "Journeyman Protector" who was convicted of treason. His backstory was depicted differently in Attack of the Clones, leading to the comic Jango Fett: Open Seasons retconning Mereel to Jango's mentor. The series reveals that Fett became a family man at one point, though he was forcibly separated from his wife after killing his commanding officer for assaulting her.
His wife subsequently disappeared and was presumed dead. Their granddaughter later sought Boba out and married a Mandalorian warrior. Boba's wife was discovered to still be alive, having been frozen in carbonite decades earlier.Why Jango Fett Killed One of His Own Clones [Legends]
