The Broken Horn was the flagship of Cikatro Vizago, an Outer Rim smuggler. The vessel was a modified C-ROC Gozanti-class cruiser, and manufactured by the Corellian Engineering Corp. Measuring more than 70 meters long, it was perfect for Vizago's needs, with significant cargo holds for illegal goods. The ship was not designed for combat, however, and had few weapons; instead, Vizago relied on its shields and speed to make quick escapes.
Lothal is a diverse planet, with both farmland and a city center. During the age of the Empire, it fell under Imperial occupation, as farmers were kicked off their land and enormous TIE fighter and weapons factories were built. While most of the population felt powerless in the face of Imperial rule, a select few dared to fight back.
Not every Jedi perished in Order 66. Kanan Jarrus survived the Emperor’s purge, going underground for years and hiding the truth about who he really was. To keep his past a secret, Kanan carried a blaster -- an uncommon practice for a Jedi -- and used a lightsaber that had to be assembled. He was a leader among the Ghost crew, a small group of rebels looking to strike back against the Empire, and with the emergence of the Force-sensitive Ezra, once again embraced his identity as a Jedi Knight.
