New Star Wars Fan Theory Suggests The Mandalorian Client is a Powerful Jedi Master

Star Wars: The Mandalorian is now heading towards its second to the last episode, and yet, the series hasn't fully explored the origin of a few important characters, including the mysterious Client played by Werner Herzog.

Though The Client's involvement in the series has only stretched across two episodes in The Mandalorian, fans have a lot of questions about the character. What did The Client want to do with Baby Yoda? Who is he, really?

Though most fans believe that The Client might be part of the former Empire or that he might be a Dark Side user, a new theory that's been making the rounds on Reddit suggests another interesting possibility. According to a theory by Reddit user Our_Warm_Oppal, The Client could really be a cover for the Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas.


This Star Wars fan suggests that The Client might really be Sifo-Dyas because the Jedi Master who appeared in The Clone Wars has a similar appearance and voice as Werzog's character. The fan also tries to buffer up the theory by listing other similarities between the characters, saying that Sifo-Dyas and The Client both work closely with Kaminoan Cloners and that they have expertise and experience with the criminal underworld.

It's an interesting theory, to say the least, but we doubt that Sifo-Dyas would want to hurt Baby Yoda. Why would a former Jedi Master want to dissect and to study Baby Yoda's anatomy and connection with the Force if he had the ability to connect with the Force himself? Couldn't he just have used his Force Powers on Baby Yoda instead of having the doctor examine the child?

What do you think of this new fan theory? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.
