Bo Katan: Go back to your Republic and tell them what has happened.
Obi-Wan: That would likely lead to a Republic invasion of Mandalore.
Bo Katan: Yes, and Maul will die. But Mandalore will survive. We always survive.
~ Bo-Katan Kryze to Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Bo-Katan Kryze is a major character in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, first appearing as a minor antagonist in the fourth season, as a major antagonist in the fifth season before redeeming herself towards the end of the season, and as a supporting protagonist in the seventh and final season. She also appears as a supporting protagonist in both the Season 4 premiere of Star Wars Rebels and Season 2 of the Disney+ live-action show, The Mandalorian.

She was a member of the Mandalorian terrorist organization known as the Death Watch and was the right-hand and lieutenant of its leader, Pre Vizsla, as she conspired to overthrow the pacifist government lead by her sister, Satine Kryze.

She later came across the renegade Sith Lord, Darth Maul, and his apprentice, Savage Opress, and allied with them as they eventually formed a criminal empire known as the Shadow Collective and eventually lead to the ousting of Satine from power. But Maul took over Mandalore for his own sake and even killed Vizsla in a duel forcing Bo-Katan to rebel and conspire against Maul and his regime. She later appears in Star Wars Rebels as a guest character in the fourth and final season as she leads the Mandalorians to rebel against the Galactic Empire and their stranglehold on Mandalore.

She is portrayed by Katee Sackhoff in both animated and live-action adaptations.

History

Early life

Bo-Katan Kryze was born on Mandalore during the final years of the Galactic Republic and was the sister of Satine Kryze. At some point in time, her sister took over the planet as its leader in the aftermath of a civil war on Mandalore which resulted in heavy losses and ultimately forced Satine to adopt a strict pacifist policy and abandon and abolish all of the warrior traditions and past that the Mandalorians were previously adherent to. Bo-Katan however, was opposed to this and joined the Death Watch to have her sister ousted from power and the Mandalorian people to embrace their warrior past once again. Bo worked alongside Death Watch leader, Pre Vizsla, and she proved herself to be a loyal follower and became his personal lieutenant and right-hand. In 21 BBY however, Death Watch was discovered on Concordia and was exiled to the snowy planet of Carlac in the Outer Rim Territories along with the rest of the Death Watch.

Death Watch Activities

In 20 BBY, Bo and the Death Watch came into contact with Lux Bonteri, the son of the late Mina Bonteri, a senator of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, who was murdered by Count Dooku for her efforts to secure peace with the Republic. Lux wanted revenge against Dooku and so went to the Death Watch for help who also wanted revenge after Dooku ceased aid to their cause over disagreements over tactics.

Trivia

  • Despite the twenty-nine years between The Clone Wars and The Mandalorian, Bo-Katan has remained physically unchanged. She was probably in her early twenties during The Clone Wars which would make her about forty-nine years old during The Mandalorian.
