Din Djarin, referred to by most as "the Mandalorian", or "Mando" for short, was a human male Mandalorian bounty hunter during the New Republic Era. With his beskar armor and distinctive mask, the Mandalorian was both well-equipped and enigmatic—a stranger whose past was shrouded in mystery. He was a battle-hardened warrior, a man of few words, and a formidable mercenary in an increasingly dangerous galaxy.
Din was a child when his home world was caught up in the Clone Wars and his family murdered. Din himself was nearly killed by a Super Battle Droid, but was saved when it and others like it were engaged by a group of Mandalorians. These soldiers, a fanatical group known as the Children of the Watch, took young Din in and raised him as one of their own. Din thus embraced their zealous interpretation of “the Way”, the Mandalorian creed, which included never removing his helmet-the first piece of Beskar armor Din obtained-in the sight of other living beings.
After the fall of the Galactic Empire, the Mandalorian made a name for himself as a member of the Bounty Hunters' Guild, collecting bounties as he traveled across the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories—far from the authority of the New Republic—in his personal starship, the Razor Crest. Apart from his skill, he was known for disliking droids-no doubt a result of his childhood trauma-and for refusing to accept Imperial currency as payment, due to the Empire’s crimes against the Mandalorians. Around 9 ABY, the Mandalorian was hired by a client who offered a substantial reward for the acquisition of an asset located on the planet Arvala-7.
