THE DARK TIMES
One day, Azmorigan was visited by the old pirate Hondo Ohnaka and a masked companion. Ohnaka was looking to sell power converters, but Azmorigan wasn’t interested. He instead decided to kill Ohnaka and collect the bounty on his head; when he learned that Ohnaka’s partner was the boy he encountered on Lothal, Azmorigan decided to kill him, too. Things didn’t work out as planned, however. Ohnaka, the boy, and their droid defeated Azmorigan’s goons, and made off with his credits.
Azmorigan, surprisingly, became partners with Hondo on a heist: along with the Ghost crew, they would steal weapons from an abandoned Imperial ship. After Imperial sentry droids attacked, however, Azmorigan came away with nothing.
Space vessel of the crime lord Azmorigan, the Merchant One was a C-ROC carrier ship featuring powerful weapons and a few surprises. The craft was equipped with one dorsal laser turret, two forward laser cannons, and two rear laser cannons -- essential heavy weaponry in Azmorigan's line of work. The Merchant One also carried a number of escape pods, which the Lothal rebel Hera used to escape the gangster's clutches.
Lando Calrissian made a name for himself as captain of the Millennium Falcon and a sportsman seeking a fortune at the galaxy’s sabacc tables. After he lost his beloved ship to Han Solo, he spent years living the high life and pursuing get-rich-quick schemes, with uneven results. He went semi-respectable as the administrator of Cloud City, only to be drawn into the fight against the Empire. His quick wit and daring helped the Alliance destroy the second Death Star, completing Lando’s evolution from smooth-talking smuggler to galactic hero.
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.
The puffer pig is a rare creature whose comical appearance and odd traits mask a hidden value. With a small, plump body, two large eyes set far apart, horn rows on their back, and a prominent snout, puffer pigs are not physically impressive animals; in addition to their strange look, the creatures balloon to more than triple their size when frightened. Puffer pigs' real gift is their sense of smell, particularly for precious minerals. In the age of the Empire, when mining was restricted, this ability led to the trade of puffer pigs on the black market.
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.
