The Mandalorian has steadily worked the same job for decades, as a methodical expert in catching bail jumpers and wanted criminals. His reputation “precedes him,” because he embodies all the things (power, competency, mystery, and success) that everyone thinks of when they think of his religious order and “kind.” In his attempts to escape with The Child, he often encounters those who ask for his help, knowing his specific skill set. The Mandalorian only deviates from his routine when his conscience cannot allow him to turn his back; even then, he continues working jobs and using what he knows about his “marks” to evade capture and do the right thing. Despite his circumstances changing and that it might be easier to avoid notice if he abandoned his armor and adopted a disguise, his rigid adherence to his “way of life” keeps him firmly settled in the present and holding onto what he knows. He catches criminals (and anyone who is “worth something”) for money and expects to be paid. He also expects to pay others for the work he does, and faithfully accomplishes this, taking on side jobs to barter, trade, and pay for repairs to his ship. The Mandalorian works for a profit, not for charity… although he is more likely to assist someone if he believes it is for a better cause. Even though the head of his order warns him that his armor may draw “the wrong kind of attention,” The Mandalorian insists she use his payment to create it – after all, it protects him from getting killed. When he needs to get into a complex, he teams up with a robot and agrees to a fair trade if they can break in together. The Mandalorian initially gives up The Child as agreed, but wrestles with his conscience and recovers him. He can be “hard” on the outside (taking the pressure ball away from The Child) but ultimately, we see his intensity melt away into fondness for the kid (and… he gives it to him/her/it to play with later on). His Ne is weak; he wavers between being convinced he can never leave The Child behind due to present dangers, and the optimism of wanting to find a safe place for it. He foolishly believes he can leave The Child on a remote planet, without it coming to the notice of other bounty hunters, but ultimately realizes he must keep it at his side to protect it.

The Mandalorian lives his life by a code that he does not break, and continually represses his anger and reactions to people, remaining calm and unruffled most of the time. Though initially wanting to keep his word and deliver The Child, he cannot deny his inner sense of moral good and decides after the fact to save The Child and protect him after all. He puts his life on the line to protect them both. He takes jobs just to keep them in food and plane parts. He is protective of those who are weak and defenseless. He also goes about his life reasonably untroubled by the outside world and unaffected by what anyone else says about him. Mando doesn’t start fights, but he sure finishes them. He just shows up, does his job, and sometimes, is a bit naive in whom he trusts. At the end of the day, all he wants is to get paid and go back to work — no muss, no fuss.
