A group of Mandalorians, led by a man called Vizsla, splintered and became known as the Death Watch. They led a coup against the true Mandalorians, led by a killer-turned-leader Jaster Mereel, and scattered them on the planet of Concord Dawn, burning fields as they went.
A 10-year old Jango Fett is wandering through a crop field two days later when he discovers some footprints in the dirt. His father startles him and tells him to get back to work on the harvester. While making repairs Vizsla and his second in command, a Death watch member with blue shoulder pads, discover and interrogate Jango.
They take him back to their home where they proceed to beat Jango's dad, looking for information on the beggar that he saw in the field. The dad says he hasn't seen Jaster Mereel since he was exiled and took over the post of Journeyman Protector. When Jango is threatened by another Death Watch member, Jango's mom shoots him in the head. Jango's dad screams for Jango to run, which he does; far into the fields. He hears three gunshots as he races away, tears streaming from his eyes. Jaster steps out of the field and shoots the Death Watch members pursuing Jango.
Vizsla orders his second in command to burn the fields and kill Jango's sister. The field burns rapidly, but Jango leads Jaster and the Mandalorians to an irrigation tube, which they crawl through to safety. Jango then shows them where the nearest town is, and Jaster agrees to allow him to join them.
In town, the Death Watch rolls in on a tank, before they ship out to Moonus Mandel. One member pushes a crippled man, who proceeds to turn around and blast him -- a Mandalorian in disguise! Jaster orders Montross to open fire, while Jango crawls under the tank with a magnetic mine and blows it sky high. The Mandalorians continue to pick off the remaining Death Watch members. Jango takes care of the second in command personally. Unfortunately Vizsla has escaped. Jaster picks up Jango and takes him and the rest of the Mandalorians out of town.
