If you happened to catch the sixth episode of The Book of Boba Fett with someone who began freaking out with glee the moment a blue-skinned, red-eyed king strolled into Freetown, they knew exactly who that man was. As you may recall, he didn't say his name, but fans of The Clone Wars, The Bad Batch, and the comics likely recognized Cad Bane: one of the best (and most ruthless) bounty hunters in the galaxy!
Cad Bane has a long history in the Star Wars galaxy, and he was mentored by none other than Jango Fett, so there's more than one connection between him and the characters in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. During the Clone Wars, he worked for the likes of Darth Sidious and Count Dooku, so his jab about Boba Fett working for the Empire was a bit hypocritical. Regardless, Cad Bane may be a ruthless criminal, but he's also an amazing character, and now that he's made the jump to live action, there are tons of fans who don't know much about him.
This list will take care of that by delving into as much of Cad Bane's history as possible. Check out his most interesting details down below, and when you learn something truly interesting, be sure to give it an upvote before you go!
