Characters I Hold Dear: Bounty Hunter: Aurra Sing

I have always loved the look and attitude of Aurra Sing as a bounty hunter. It may also have been for me the fact that she was a female bounty hunter. I always loved Boba Fett as many do but for me a Bounty Hunter should be more vicious and heartless. The emergence of The Clone Wars cartoon gave these bounty hunters room to shine.

Aurra Sing has had some great story lines especially when she interacts and mentors a young Boba Fett. She is also one of the few bounty hunter characters that makes appearances in the films. While she does not have a long scene or even one with lines she is there in The Phantom Menace if you look hard enough.

Her back story is a very interesting one and definitely shows why and how bounty hunters develop. It seems many times that the fallen Jedi become masters of the dark side of the force whether they become a Sith or a bounty hunter. I know many will say that bounty hunters are not in tune with the force but perhaps they are to a degree.
