Chapter 9: The Marshal

Star Wars: The MandalorianTrying to fulfill the Armorer’s instruction that the Child be reunited with others of its kind, the Mandalorian must now find others of his own kind to help on that quest – and after the Mandalorian covert was wiped out on Navarro, that’s not an easy task. A lead on a lone Mandalorian living in the Tatooine mining village of Mos Pelgo takes the Mandalorian and the Child back to that desert world, where he finds a village under siege – and the town marshal wearing Mandalorian armor that does not belong to him. The village and its population face extinction due to repeated visits from a ravenous Krayt Dragon, and the marshal, Vanth Cobb, strikes a deal to surrender his purloined armor in exchange for the Mandalorian’s help in dealing with the Krayt Dragon once and for all. But it quickly becomes apparent that two men in armor are insufficient; the entire village will have to pitch in…and worse, they may have to work together with their hated enemies, a local band of Tusken Raiders, to do away with the threat to them all.

The MandalorianNotes: Obi-Wan Kenobi scared off a band of Tusken Raiders by imitating the scream of a Krayt Dragon in the original Star Wars; now we have a little more context for why they took off so quickly. Apparently a particularly ravenous Krayt Dragon can force a Sarlacc to abandon its pit. Peli Motto was previously seen in the season one episode The Gunslinger. Mos Eisley and Mos Espa (the site of much of Episode I‘s action) are both still thriving, though Mos Pelgo has struggled to survive both Tusken Raider attacks and the Dragon.
