In the first episode of the series, the titular Mandalorian bounty hunter (Pedro Pascal) accepts a valuable commission to track down and capture an unidentified fifty-year-old target. Infiltrating a remote and heavily defended encampment, the Mandalorian acquires the quarry, who appears to be a child from the same species as Yoda. In "Chapter 2: The Child", the Mandalorian is attacked by a rhinoceros-like creature called a Mudhorn. As the beast rushes in for the kill, the Child uses The Force to levitate the creature, allowing the surprised Mandalorian to kill it. The Mandalorian delivers the Child to the Client (Werner Herzog) on Nevarro and collects his bounty in "Chapter 3: The Sin". Uncharacteristically, The Mandalorian asks about the Client's plans for the Child, but is told that it is none of his concern. The Mandalorian accepts a new job, but instead turns back to infiltrate the Client's base and retrieve the Child, who is being studied by Dr. Pershing (Omid Abtahi). The Mandalorian is ambushed by a group of other bounty hunters, who demand that he hand over the Child. The Mandalorian is able to escape when other Mandalorians unexpectedly arrive, attacking the bounty hunters and allowing him to escape with the Child. In "Chapter 4: Sanctuary", the Mandalorian arrives at the sparsely populated planet Sorgan to lay low for a while with the Child. He plans to leave his quarry in the care of kind local villagers, but when another bounty hunter arrives to claim the Child, the Mandalorian realizes the village will not be safe and departs with him. In "Chapter 5: The Gunslinger", the Mandalorian joins aspiring bounty hunter Toro Calican (Jake Cannavale) to capture elite mercenary/assassin Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen). Learning that the Mandalorian has an even larger bounty on him and the Child, Calican doubles back and takes the Child hostage. The Mandalorian arrives and kills Calican.
