Introduced in the Star Wars Clone Wars series, the Death Watch were a splinter group of Mandalorians that went against the people of Mandalore’s pacifism. They tried taking over the planet several times, none of which took, and were primarily led in secret by Pre Vizsla and Bo-Katan Kryze (sister of the Dutchess Satine). The only time that they actually were successful in taking over the planet was when Darth Maul and Savage Opress killed Vizsla and ruled over them as the Shadow Collective. Bo-Katan, however, managed to escape the chaos of the planet, and pretty soon, she’ll be making her way to the Rebels series in its final season. If things go her way and she survives, she should be a part of Battlefront II.
The original Battlefront expanded its scope for Heroes to go beyond simple big league characters, eventually incorporating characters like Greedo, Bossk, and Dengar. Bo-Katan is definitely among that class of characters where’s she more well known than most, but also not someone who springs to mind instantly when talking in generalities about the franchise. Like other members of Death Watch (and the splinter group of that she led, the Nite Owls), Bo has an array of tools that lend her well to the dynamics of a multiplayer game. The jetpacks allows for verticality, her blaster pistols cover the shooting, and her grappling line and gauntlet blades ensure that getting up close and personal is a mistake. Plus, assuming that the sequel won’t feature Heroes who showed up the last time around, this would make her a handy stand-in for Boba Fett.
