University of Coruscant 2:8 Cad Bane

Cad Bane took the mantle of "Best Bounty Hunter" when Jango Fett died. Their similarities are striking. Maybe not as similar as Jango to Boba, but c'mon, let's be fair. Cad Bane had one up on Jango Fett though, and that was a flair for the dramatic. Bane pulled off some of the greatest jobs in history and was absolutely not scared of the limelight. He relished it. And, if I might add, he looked good doing it too.

University of Coruscant 2:7 Jango Fett

What do the Clone Wars and Boba Fett have in common? The answer is the greatest bounty hunter of his era, a mandalorian named Jango Fett. And no, I don't want to debate mandalorians, but I probably will a bit. Either way, Jango Fett was so well regarded, that Darth Tyranus decided to recruit him for a little cloning operation which resulted in a galaxy-wide political upheaval and the eradication of a thousand years of jedi tradition. Pretty impressive, if that's your sort of thing.

University of Coruscant 2:6 Bossk

If you're a Trandoshan, born as the son of the leader of the bounty hunters guild, and your father names you "Devours His Prey" after you eat all your brothers and sisters, well you have a lot to live up to.  Bossk did exactly that.  Daddy was proud.

University of Coruscant 2:5 Aurra Sing

There are some bounty hunters in the galaxy with a moral code. They do things for a reason and they don't bend. They won't take certain jobs, or eliminate certain targets. They are rational and thoughtful and maybe even a little bit caring. They are not Aurra Sing.

University of Coruscant 2:4 Greedo

Greedo is a great example of why not all jobs are for all people. Sometimes it takes talent. Sometimes it takes a certain temperament. When you cram a square peg in a round hole, you may not like the result. And it may get you blasted. Greedo was a bounty hunter who never stood a chance, from his rough start to his end at a table with Han Solo.

The tale of 4-LOM and Zuckuss is the tale of 2 deadly strangers who become best friends, and what's better to drink to than that.
