THE DARK TIMES
The rebels used the Phantom for transport to Reklam Station, an Imperial salvage yard. The ship suffered heavy damage from a dismantler droid, however, and was lost to the abyss when the outpost was destroyed.
The Ghost, piloted by the gifted Hera Syndulla, was the starship and home base of a small band of Lothal rebels. Named for its ability to travel past Imperial sensors without detection, the craft included many hidden surprises that aided the crew in their fight against the Empire. Among its many features were a 360-degree dorsal laser cannon turret, two forward laser cannons, and two rear laser cannons, as well as sleeping quarters. It also included the Phantom, a secondary shuttle that acted as a fully-armed starfighter.
The captain and heart of the Ghost crew, Hera Syndulla was a gifted pilot and leader. While Hera was a strong commander -- and especially adept at dogfighting with TIE fighters -- she was also warm and nurturing. The Twi’lek could bring out the best in her team, which consisted of very different personalities, making them believe in themselves, each other, and their struggle against the Empire.
Chopper was the resident droid of the Ghost, assisting the crew in everything from ship maintenance to combat -- even though he didn't always want to. After many years of repairs and patch jobs, Chopper had a beat-up, worn look that matched his sometimes cranky personality. Aesthetics aside, he was an essential part of this small rebel team, and ultimately, was loyal and heroic.
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.
Near impenetrable, the Spire is one of the galaxy's most notorious prisons. Sith Lord Darth Sidious used the Spire to hold his former apprentice, Darth Maul, during the Clone Wars; later, the Spire became an Imperial jail, and was blast-proof, ray-shielded, and protected by anti-ship weapons, TIE fighters, and scanners.
Tibidees are large flying creatures found in the mountains of Stygeon Prime, featuring two enormous wings, green eyes, and a long tail. They are attuned to frequencies and vibrations, and can often interpret the signals of nearby starships as mating calls. While mostly gentle, tibidees will attack when threatened or provoked.
