The Mandalorian has been bringing in a number of much-anticipated characters in its second season, however we did not precisely anticipate to see Fennec Shand reappear! The bounty hunter, who was a one-time antagonist to Din Djarin again in season one, is again, however she’s not precisely out for revenge.
We first meet Shand again in season one, when Din Djarin groups up with Toro Calican, a rookie bounty hunter, to convey her in. On the time, she is on the run after a number of of her purchasers – largely crime bosses – have been captured and locked up, and he or she’s received the popularity to go together with it. “Fennec Shand is an elite mercenary. She made her title killing for all the highest crime syndicates, together with the Hutts. When you go after her, you will not make it previous dawn,” Djarin warns Calican early on.
In the course of the battles between her and the crew of Djarin and Calican, Shand undoubtedly proves that her popularity is warranted, almost killing Calican and placing up an excellent struggle in opposition to each of them. She even tries to persuade Calican to betray Djarin and switch him in as a traitor to the guild. At first, it looks like she’s satisfied him, however as an alternative, he shoots her and decides to tackle Djarin (and gather his bounty) alone. The final time we see her, she’s mendacity within the desert, apparently useless, as a mysterious determine with jangling boots approaches her physique.
The newest episode reveals precisely what occurs after that. Boba Fett, as many suspected, is the determine who finds Shand within the desert, and he helps her survive by changing a big portion of her stomach with cybernetic know-how, just like how Anakin and Luke Skywalker each obtain a cybernetic hand at one level. After saving her life, Fett convinces Shand to turn into his associate, and the 2 work collectively to trace down bounties, together with Djarin himself. This time, although, they’re really keen to work on the identical facet in opposition to Moff Gideon and his contingent of Imperial darkish troopers, and so they even agree to assist Djarin get Grogu again, having made a deal for Fett’s armor in trade for serving to hold Grogu protected.
Aside from what we have seen on display, although, Shand’s backstory and motivations are a complete thriller, in contrast to most of the different characters. So far as we all know, she does not have any connections to current lore, so she’s a uncommon wild card of a personality. For now, no less than, she’s surprisingly nonvillainous and keen to reside as much as the code of honor that the Guild’s hunters hold.
We have additionally received a enjoyable behind-the-scenes truth about her! She’s performed by Ming-Na Wen, who’s, to date, the one particular person to hit the Disney-owned “trifecta”: a Disney princess (the unique voice of Mulan), a Marvel hero (tremendous agent Melinda Might in Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and a Star Wars character.
