    He's fantastic. I'd love to hear him and Sabine talk about Mandalorian traditions.

    Yeah that would be good too.

    I'm happy he didn't die though.

    My son and I were already re-enacting the battle between the Protectors and Phoenix Squadron with Legos...

    I enjoy the character thus far, seems like he has a decent backstory as well. Training clones, fighting with the GAR and now a paid mercenary in service of the Empire. So very Mandalorian of him. If he could be turned, he would become a powerful ally.

    He is my new favorite character in Rebels. He's number 4 right under Pre Vizsla and he's right below Cad Bane and Captain Rex.
    He probably is the most kickass Mando since Pre Vizsla though, Clone War veteran, legendary Mandalorian warrior and leader of the Protectors, Clone Trooper instructor, and he can spin his pistols. That is now a requirement for all Mandalorians.

    I second this. Now we got 2 Clone War vets with the Rebels. I hope his exploits during the Clone Wars are detailed more, any way I don't really care, I just want to see this guy more.

    Well thanks to the leaky ship that is FPJ we know he will be a new recurring character.

    Well he's captured, and Kanan pulled something that I'd almost expect to see on an episode of COPS. "Rebels, filmed on location as it happens."

    Well he did rip Fenn out of his ship forcibly and then punch him in the face. And then proceed to take him away. I can see the similarities lol

    I thought Rau was super cool too, even after Sabine made him look a little cocky in their duel! I highlight his other appearance in my recap of the episode.

    Bringing lore like this into Rebels will make fans so happy!

    Agreed. Fenn's appearance in Kanan #10 and then on the episode of Rebels on the same day is one of the best use of this new story group and unified canon.

    I really hope they continue to coordinate on this level ... by announcing an "Ahsoka - The Lost Padawan" series that starts directly after Kanan's one ends!

    He's nearly as ugly as Snoke, I'll give him that.

    Nah can't be Snoke because every single Mandalorian has the same facial structure... Unless everyone on Mandalore is a Clone! :p

    jabberwalkie lol

    About Fenn Rau-
    His skin tone seems darker than those of Pre Vizsla, Bo-Katan and other Mandalorians native to Mandalore. I'm guessing he's a native to Concord Dawn and that's why Jango Fett is much dark then others from Mandalorian planets also.

    I like this guy, he certainly learned his lesson in being arrogant when he lost the duel to Sabine. I'm also glad that it was made clear that the Protectors are being paid by the Empire, and that they don't willingly serve them.

    I don't really think you need spoilers :p Also I wouldn't say he was being arrogant, he was defending his title, Sabine called him out for single combat and he accepted. I didn't like the outcome of the duel, it felt sorta unbelievable and like plot BS when Sabine somehow had a quicker and more accurate shot than Fenn, who is a Clone War vet, legendary warrior and leader of the Protectors. It just seemed like she won because she was a protagonist. And I agree on the Protectors being paid by the Empire, the way Kanan explained it at the end was good. Fenn was just accepting so the Imperials weren't swarming Concord Dawn.

    Hey, Sabine's pretty good too :p
    She may have also had that extra determination going on, since he did wound Hera.

    And yeah...I suppose the "Sabine is the protagonist" thing works too...

    Haha. I hope we get something soon to show more of Fenn before Season 3. I can't wait another year.
