It’s a tough question, for a show that in just 12 episodes (less, considering the lead time for articles such as this) has already given us a rich cast of characters for Din Djarin to interact with, but that was the question put to StarWars.com writers Amy Richau and Brendan Nystedt; which is their favourite supporting character so far in The Mandalorian?
No contest. It’s Kuiil, says Amy.
“You are a bounty hunter. I will help you. I have spoken.”
These are some of the first words Kuiil spoke in The Mandalorian and they sum up why he’s the best supporting character. An Ugnaught of few words, Kuiil was a patient problem solver in a harsh world. He wasn’t interested in fame or fortune — all he wanted was peace in his valley and to protect others from the Imperial enslavement that dominated most of his own life.
It’s Greef Karga, says Brendan.
I totally get it — I absolutely love Kuiil, too. But there’s one Mandalorian character I love more than most (well, except the Child, naturally) and it’s Greef Karga. I think there are two main reasons why.
The first reason is that Greef Karga feels like he has a history. From the second you meet him, Karga establishes himself as a seasoned veteran of the underworld. He feels like a guy who’s accomplished a lot in his bounty hunting career, and now doles out the gigs to others in the Bounty Hunters’ Guild. He’s a tough cookie who seems to be in his element when among fellow galactic scum and villainy. Did he work for the Empire at some point? His backstory remains mysterious.
Read the full piece for their very logical reasoning.
