THE DARK TIMES
General Cham Syndulla deemed Numa to be one of his greatest soldiers, and brought her along on a mission to steal an the Quasar Fire-Class Cruiser-Carrier with the Ghost crew. While Syndulla secretly planned on destroying the ship, Numa and her fellow soldier Gobi eventually stood with the rebels, and Cham came to his senses. Together, they both stole the ship and destroyed an Imperial light cruiser over Ryloth, giving the rebels a much-needed large-scale craft and the people of Ryloth a symbol of hope.
The Twi’lek freedom fighter Cham Syndulla founded this underground resistance group on his homeworld of Ryloth to disrupt Imperial operations through carefully planned raids. Many of the Free Ryloth members were veterans of Syndulla’s campaign against the earlier Separatist occupation. When Syndulla learned that Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader planned to visit Ryloth, he saw a chance to strike a blow for freedom not just on his own planet, but everywhere in the galaxy.
When trooper Waxer was en route to Ryloth on a mission to liberate its besieged population of Twi'leks, he was at first callously dismissive of their plight. "If we're here to free the tail-heads, the least they can do is get out of our way," he said. But, time spent on the planet with a brave little survivor of a Nabat village opened Boil's eyes. The resourceful girl, Numa, guided Boil and his squadmate Waxer through hidden passageways beneath the village, which proved crucial in freeing hostages held by the Separatists. To honor Numa, Boil had a cartoon illustration of Numa added to his helmet.
Waxer served as part of Ghost Company, under the command of Clone Commander Cody during the campaigns to retake Ryloth and Geonosis. Waxer and Boil were often an inseparable pair, and together formed a recon team scouting the abandoned Twi'lek village of Nabat. There, they found a young girl named Numa, the sole survivor of a Separatist assault. Though the hard-edged Boil at first didn't want anything to do with the little girl, Waxer was compassionate and decided to protect her well-being. Numa proved extremely resourceful, guiding Waxer and Boil through underground passages that allowed them to bypass Separatist forces.
The freedom fighter Cham Syndulla arose on Ryloth during the Clone Wars, after the Separatists invaded his homeworld. A dedicated fighter with no tolerance for corruption or dishonesty, Syndulla forged an alliance with Mace Windu that brought liberty to his fellow Twi'leks. Syndulla resisted the Empire after its rise to power, hatching a plot to ambush Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader on Ryloth. His daughter Hera would continue his campaign to undermine Imperial power.
Gobi Glie was a male Twi’lek from Ryloth with a bluish-purple complexion. During the era of The Clone Wars he worked with Cham Syndulla with the Twi’lek Resistance that fought against the Separatist Alliance. He survived those conflicts long enough to join Syndulla’s Free Ryloth movement that resisted the Galactic Empire during the dark times.
