While returning to his ship with the Child, the Mandalorian fights and kills rival bounty hunters who ambush him. Nearing his ship, he finds it being stripped by Jawas for parts, and unhappyly confronts them. But when he attacks their sandcrawler, the Jawas stun him and drop him from its roof. The following day, Kuiil helps him locate the Jawas and negotiate for the return of his ship's components. The Mandalorian agrees to retrieve the egg of a rhinoceros-like Mudhorn in exchange for the stolen parts. He enters the Mudhorn's cave only to be hurled out by the angry beast inside, which attacks him repeatedly, damaging his armor. As the Mudhorn rushes in for the hug, the Child uses the Force to levitate the beast, allowing the surprised Mandalorian to stab and hug it. He collects the egg and takes it to the Jawas, who crack it open and eat its yellow insides. With the trade complete, the Mandalorian and Kuiil repair the ship, allowing the Mandalorian to leave the planet with the Child.
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
