―Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi

This duel was a confrontation between Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett on the planet of Kamino in 22 BBY. Having been instructed by the Jedi High Council to find the bounty hunter responsible for the plot to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala of Naboo, Kenobi was informed by the Prime Minister of Kamino, Lama Su, that a bounty hunter named Jango Fett lived in Tipoca City, the capital city of Kamino. After Kenobi questioned Fett about the plot, Fett attempted to escape from Kamino with his clone son, Boba Fett. Kenobi confronted Fett and engaged him near Slave I, Fett's starship. During the duel, Kenobi managed to knock both twin blasters out of Fett's hands. Kenobi, however, lost his lightsaber, and as he used the Force to pull it back to him, Fett used his whipcord launcher, to yank Kenobi's hands away. The two fought hand-to-hand on the wet surface platform until Kenobi kicked Fett, which caused the bounty hunter to lose his footing and fall off the platform. Kenobi, who was still tied to Fett's whipcord, was pulled off the platform behind him.

Fett disconnected the whipcord that held Kenobi, and the Jedi fell down towards the ocean as Fett retreated back to his ship. The Jedi used the Force to secure himself with the cable Fett released, and swung towards a door below the platform they had dueled on. Fett boarded his ship as his son took off, while Kenobi rushed back out onto the platform. Kenobi located his lightsaber and ignited it, but Slave I had lifted off from the platform. Kenobi took out a tracking device from his belt and threw it onto the hull of the ship. Soon after, Kenobi tracked the pair to the Outer rim planet of Geonosis, in his Delta-7 Jedi Starfighter and engaged Fett once more in the asteroid field above Geonosis.

Prelude

Taun We: "Jango, Welcome back. Was your trip productive?"
Jango: "Fairly."
Taun We: "This is Master Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi, He's come to check up on our progress."
—Obi-Wan Kenobi meeting Jango Fett

In 22 BBY the Jedi High Council gave Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi a mission to find the bounty hunter responsible for the plot to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala of Naboo. While his Padawan, Anakin Skywalker, had been given an assignment by the Council to protect Amidala on Naboo, Kenobi went to see his old friend, the Besalisk Dexter Jettster—nicknamed Dex—in Dex's Diner, to find more information about a toxic dart that the Jedi had taken from the body of Clawdite assassin Zam Wesell, who had been shot with the dart and killed before she could release information about the plot to assassinate Amidala. Dex told Kenobi that the dart belonged to the Kaminoans, a species who lived in the Wild Space, beyond the Outer Rim. After he left the diner, Kenobi, with the assistance of Jedi Librarian Jocasta Nu, used the Jedi Archives to find the planet of Kamino, which was missing from the archives, suggesting that it didn't exist. Troubled, Kenobi decided to discuss the issue with Jedi Grand Master Yoda.[1]

Obi-Wan Kenobi meeting Jango Fett

Yoda was instructing Bear Clan, a group of younglings. One of them, J. K. Burtola, suggested that Kamino had been erased from the archives, and Yoda told Kenobi to travel to the coordinates. Kenobi found Kamino where the coordinates said it should be, near the Rishi Maze. He landed on the rainy, oceanic planet and was greeted by Kaminoan Taun We, who took Kenobi to the Prime Minister, Lama Su. Su told Kenobi about a clone army that they had created for the Republic. The revealed that the host was a bounty hunter named Jango Fett. Taun We took Kenobi to Fett's living quarters in Kamino's capital, Tipoca City. Fett's genetically unaltered clone child, Boba Fett, allowed We and the Jedi to enter. Jango soon approached the group, and We introduced the Jedi. Kenobi interrogated Fett about the plot to assassinate Amidala, but Fett did not reveal any information. As We and Kenobi exited Fett's quarters, Fett and his son prepared to leave Kamino immediately. Kenobi contacted Yoda and Jedi Master Mace Windu, and Yoda demanded to Kenobi to bring Fett back to the galactic capital of Coruscant for further investigation.[1]

Obi-Wan and Jango duel near Slave I

While loading cargo onto their starship, Slave I, the Fetts prepared to leave Kamino, but Kenobi ran out onto the landing platform where Slave I was docked. Kenobi's presence alerted young Boba, who shouted to his father that the Jedi found them. Kenobi ignited his lightsaber, which forced Jango to pull out his twin WESTAR-34 blaster pistols and open fire on the Jedi. As Kenobi deflected Jango's blaster fire, the bounty hunter ignited his jetpack and hid himself on top of a lighting fixture. Unbeknownst to Kenobi, Jango fired the jetpack's missile at the Jedi, which exploded nearby, causing Kenobi to loose his lightsaber. Inside Slave I's cockpit, Boba activated the starship's heavy twin blaster cannons and fired towards Kenobi. The shots hit nearby, and Kenobi was thrown backwards across the platform. Jango reemerged from the fixture and flew towards Kenobi, who Force jumped and kicked Fett, knocking the bounty hunter to the ground, and causing him to loose both of his blasters.[1]

As the two engaged in hand-to-hand combat, Jango tried to grab onto the Jedi. With a quick kick at the bounty hunter's helmet, Jango was forced to release Kenobi. Upon regaining his feet, Fett stood up and "head bumped" Kenobi with his helmet, causing Kenobi to fall back onto the platform. The Jedi noticed his lightsaber near the edge of the and tried to call it to him. Jango shot his whipcord launcher at the Jedi, and the cord wrapped around the Jedi's outstretched hand and yanked him away from his lightsaber, dragging him across the platform.[1]

Jango, using his Whipcord launcher to grab onto Kenobi.

Kenobi tangled the whipcord around a lighting fixture, causing Jango to crash onto the platform. The jetpack was released from his armor and exploded nearby. Standing up, the bounty hunter grabbed onto one of his fallen blasters and fired at Kenobi, who was running towards Jango. Kenobi kicked Jango off the platform, and then realized that he was still connected to the whipcord around his hands. Kenobi was flipped onto the side of the platform and slid down towards Jango.[1]

Desperate to save his life, Jango activated a series of grappling tools on his arm and dug them into the platform to slow down his fall. Kenobi, however, slid past Jango and off over the edge of the platform, where he dangled, held by the whipcord. As Jango's grappling tools were failing due to the added weight, Jango released the whipcord, causing Kenobi to freefall down towards the ocean. Using the Force, Kenobi managed to throw the cord and attach it onto a stucture below the platform. After making sure that the Jedi was nowhere to be seen, Jango used his grappling tools to crawl back to the top of the platform. Meanwhile, Kenobi flipped onto a ramp and reentered the city to catch up to Jango, who was boarding Slave I. Kenobi reemerged onto the platform and quickly recovered his lightsaber. Both Fetts, however, were aboard Slave I, which was now lifting off, and Kenobi to threw a homing beacon onto the side of the starship's hull.[1]

Aftermath

Boba: "Dad! I think we're being tracked!"
Jango: "He must have put a homing device on our hull."
―Jango and Boba Fett noticing a Jedi starfighter approaching

After Jango and Boba Fett left Kamino, Kenobi boarded his Delta-7 Jedi Starfighter and tracked Slave I in the Geonosis system. Once more, Kenobi engaged Fett over the asteroid field above the planet. After the conflict, Kenobi learned more of the assassination attempt on Amidala on Geonosis when he intercepted Jango and Count Dooku. Kenobi tried to contact his padawan, Anakin Skywalker, however he was not on Naboo. After he found out that Anakin disobeyed him, he contacted his apprentice on Tatooine and told him to redirect his message to Coruscant. Kenobi told Windu, Yoda and Supreme Chancellor Palpatine about how he tracked Jango Fett to a Droid foundry on Geonosis. The newly formed Separatist Council, and Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray is behind the assassination attempt on Amidala. Kenobi was then captured by Dooku's Geonosian workers and was held captive until the arrival of Skywalker and Amidala, whom attempted to rescue him, though they were captured as well. The Battle of Geonosis, the first battle of the Clone Wars, began after the arrival of Windu and his Jedi strike team. Fett engaged Windu during the battle, and was killed after the Jedi Master used Sai cha to decapitate the bounty hunter.[1]

"The white walls on Kamino were stained with the red blood of two powerful warriors. They fought to the death. Niether side willing to give in."
—From a HoloNet retelling on the duel

The Duel on Kamino, sometimes called the Battle of Kamino, was a horrific conflict between Grand Master Rick Mallux and Grand Lord Krayt. The duel sparked the Jed'ari Civil War and rekindled the age old rivalry between the Sith and Jedi. The duel also proved that the Jedi were not a dying breed, but a zealous force of freedom fighters that could still be victorous over their foes. Thought it was not unyielding the duel lasted nearly twentyfour standred hours.

History

Before the Duel

Death of Rammar Ui

Ui, proir to his death.

After their defeat during the Zungti War, the Jed'ari fled to the moon of Gall. Grand Lord Rammar Ui and his chief counsilor, Krayt, were steadfast in their stands to countiue to fight until the Zungti were destroyed. Not long after Rammar and Krayt went on a scouting mission into Zungti territory. Only Krayt returned. Rick Mallux, the leader of the Jedi who had not joined the Union, was convinced that Krayt had killed his former mentor. Within a week Krayt was elected the new Grand Lord. Rick, now under the impression that the Jed'ari were in Sith hands, vowed to take open actions against the Order.

Capturing Kamino

Lord Krayt knew that the Jedi Traditionalists on Hoth would jump at the chance to kill him. He also knew that he could not have victory over the Zungti with merely the Jed'ari. Therefore Krayt determained that a new army was needed to put his plans into action. He traveled to the Kamino system, which was famous for its state-of-the-art mass cloning facilities. His goal was to create the next great clone army. But he was not about to pay for it from the Order's limited treasurey. When he arrived on the water consumed world, he went strait to work. Krayt killed many of the Kaminoians and destroyed all their soldiers. He captured the prime minister and forced him to give up rule of his planet. After he was in control of Kamino Krayt ordered the creation of a clone army, with himself as the template. Likewise, he took control of existing clone projects. When Rick Mallux got knews of the uprsing, through one of his contacts, he flew to the watery world to confront Lord Krayt.

Welcoming Commitee

Mallux landed on Kamino without much obosition. When Krayt was informed of Rick's arrival he was eager to disspose of his long-time rival. He order a group of premeture clones to destroy the Grand Jedi Master. The moment Rick stept out of his starfighter it exploded into a hail of burning debree. Master Mallux leaded out of the way, as clone soldiers charged him. The clones were weak and young. Therefore Rick was able to destroy them with little dificalty. He then marched inside to confront Lord Krayt.

The Duel

Standoff

"Master Mallux, how plessent of you to join us."
—Darth Krayt

Krayt had suspected the clones would be destroyed by the young Jedi Master. When Mallux entered the cloning facility the Jed'ari was already waiting for him. The Grand Lord denied his connection to Ui's death and tried shake Rick's confidence. The Jedi would not waver, however. He removed his outer robe and drew his saber. Krayt, however, refused to grab his lgihtsaber right away, knowing that the Jedi would not slay an unarmed man. Rather you tried to win through words. He talked about an alliance that would rise up and crush the Zungti. Rick would not budge. Finally the former Sith said that he would surrender to the Jedi. But as Mallux marched foward to take his prisioner, Krayt drew his weapon and attacked.

Battle in Clone Facility

The duel brought the two oppoants into the heart of Tipoca City, where confused residents tried to avoid the conflict. The warriors found they matched each other quite well. Krayt was stronger in the Force, yet Rick was better skilled with his lightsaber.
