In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones we are introduced to Jango Fett, a feared bounty hunter who is not only hired to kill Padme Amidala but is also the template for the Clone Army troopers, but how was he chosen? Jango himself says he was "recruited by a man called Tyranus" but doesn't say why or how.

It is mentioned in a Legends: Republic comic that he was chosen by a competition but is there any canon (pre-Disney or Disney, and non-Legends) version of the selection process?

A character explains to a clone trooper how Dooku told him that Fett was the best warrior in the galaxy and won some bounty-hunter competition to become the basis for the clones

His reputation preceded him.

Fett meets with Tyranus who explains the job (hired to be the clones' template) and why he chose Fett: because of his reputation of skill and discretion in his line of work

    I may be incorrect but I believe the overall plot of the videogame Star Wars: Bounty Hunter was about how Jango ultimately got selected. In Legends, of course. – SpaceWolf1701 Mar 13 at 0:08
  • @SpaceWolf1701 - OP was, of course, asking about canon sources – Valorum Mar 13 at 17:06
  • So they did. I misread based on the "Pre-Disney" descriptor, since anything pre-Disney was by default "Legends". – SpaceWolf1701 Mar 13 at 19:34

    @SpaceWolf - Even if it's not canon, it's probably worth posting as an answer to the question. As long as you point out that it's Legends, it's still worthy of upvotes. – Valorum Mar 13 at 19:47

    @SeamustheDog - That's your lot from a canon perspective. – Valorum Mar 16 at 22:22
