THE DARK TIMES
One of the rebels, Kanan Jarrus, told Ezra that his abilities came from the mysterious energy field known as the Force. Kanan was a fugitive Jedi, and offered to train Ezra as his Padawan. The boy agreed, though the road would not be easy for a master who hadn’t completed his own training and a headstrong apprentice who’d never liked taking orders from anybody.
During his time with the rebels, Ezra dedicated himself to a purpose beyond simply surviving, and saw his opposition to the Empire as a way to honor his parents’ sacrifice. He also grew as a Jedi, learning to control his powers and use them responsibly.
