Homecoming Episode Guide
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.
A Twi'lek child who lived on the planet Ryloth during the Clone Wars, Numa escaped being captured by the Separatist droid army by hiding in tunnels beneath the town of Nabat. Two clone troopers from Ghost Company -- Boil and Waxer -- discovered Numa while on a recon mission. She showed them the tunnels, which Obi-Wan Kenobi then used to free the Twi'lek prisoners and defeat the town's Separatist occupiers.
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.
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.
