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.
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. 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.
