A Mandalorian bounty hunter tracks a target for a well-paying, mysterious client.
Five years after the fall of the Empire, a Mandalorian bounty hunter collects a bounty after a scuffle exchange in a bar on Maldo Kries and returns to a guild hall on Nevarro in his ship, the Razor Crest. He meets with his guild’s leader, Greef Karga, who mostly has low-paying bounties which will not cover traveling expenses. Looking to get a big bounty, The Mandalorian accepts a mysterious commission for which Karga can only provide an address to meet the Client, who wants the details of the job to be private.
The Client, who uses Imperial stormtroopers as bodyguards, gives the Mandalorian a vague target to bring back alive. The only information he is allowed to give is an age (50 years old) and last known location. In exchange, The Client promises to reward the bounty hunter with a crate of Beskar, a rare metal used by Mandalorians to forge impenetrable armor. Receiving a single bar of Beskar as a down payment, the Mandalorian meets with the Armorer at an enclave housing fellow Mandalorians. The Armorer, who melts the metal to give the Mandalorian a new pauldron, says the metal was gathered in The Great Purge and the excess will sponsor other foundlings, like The Mandalorian once was.
The Mandalorian travels to the desert planet Arvala-7 and meets a native named Kuiil who wants to help him so that he can be rid of the criminals and mercenaries who now inhabit the area. Kuiil teaches the Mandalorian to ride a Blurrg, as there are no land speed vehicles to traverse the area, and sends him to where his bounty is located. Upon reaching the hideout, the Mandalorian is forced to team up with bounty droid IG-11. They manage to clear the entire facility of its Nikto guards and discover that the bounty is a green, big-eared infant creature. IG-11 plans to kill it, but the Mandalorian blasts the droid to protect the baby and his bounty.
