Montross (c. 92 BBY - 32 BBY) was a Mandalorian bounty hunter who competed with Jango Fett to become the template for the clone troopers.
Even as a Mandalorian, Montross had always gone to extreme measures. Though he served loyally under Mandalore Jaster Mereel, Montross had his own vision on how the mercenary group should be run.
During the Battle of Korda 6 in the Mandalorian Civil War, Montross disobeyed Mereel and went on a foolhardy assault against a well- entrenched enemy.
The battle soon turned into a rout, and Mereel realized that it was a trap set by their enemies: the Death Watch. Mereel wanted to evacuate, but Montross delayed them, yelling that Mandalorians never abandoned a fight.
Jaster used Montross' insane maneuvers as a distraction to allow Jango to reach their target, but when the Death Watch's leader, Vizsla, showed up, Montross saw his opportunity and abandoned Jaster, leaving the Mandalore open to attack from Vizsla's tank.
Montross' betrayal led to his leader's death, and upon his return to the Mandalorians, he attempted to claim the mantle of Mandalore.
However, Jango Fett returned with Mereel's corpse, exposing Montross's treachery. To Montross's dismay, the Mandalorians collectively agreed that Jango should lead the Mandalorians, not Montross, despite the elder warrior's retort of
"You would have a child leading you?".
Disgusted, and under the threat of exile for his part in Mereel's death, Montross left the Mandalorians forever, and became a bounty hunter.
After the Mandalorians were almost entirely annihilated at the Battle of Galidraan, he was one of the few left in the galaxy who still wore the armor and was known for never taking a live bounty.
Like Jango Fett, Montross was offered the chance to by the enigmatic Tyranus to become the Prime Clone for the planned Grand Army of the Republic. Still nursing a grudge against his own rival, Montross decided that he would stop at nothing to ensure it was he, and not Jango Fett that collected the bounty on Bando Gora leader Komari Vosa.
Twice Fett and Montross fought, on Coruscant and Malastare. Fett escaped his rival both times, and seemed to be far ahead of Montross in the race. However, unbeknownst to his opponent, Montross had managed to put a tracking device on Slave I and overheard Fett's conversation with Rozatta. Heading to the Outland Station, Montross forced the Toydarian to tell him the location of Vosa and the Bando Gora. Rozatta told Montross Vosa was on the fourth moon of Bogden - Kohlma. Sure that the prize would now be his, Montross then set thermal charges on Outland Station and contacted Jango, gloating that he would get Vosa himself, but Fett managed to find the return before the station exploded, receiving from the dying Rozatta the information he required.
On Kohlma, Montross and Jango reached Vosa's palace and prepared to have one final duel. Montross boasted to his opponent:
"Just like ol' times, you and me, man to man, face to face. Only now we do this to the death! May the best man win."
"I am the best, always was."
Montross' final words to Jango were:
"We'll see about that."
Montross had his old Mandalorian armor and the two prepared to fight, with Jango as the victor. Montross wanted a 'warrior's death' but he had already done too much, and Jango simply left him screaming in agony as the Bando Gora proudly finished him off.
