An ancient building hidden within the planet surface, the Lothal Jedi Temple was discovered by Padawan Ezra Bridger through a connection with the Force. Inside the Temple, he and his Master, Kanan Jarrus, gained new insights into themselves -- thanks to guidance from Yoda, communing from a distant world. There, Yoda gave Ezra a kyber crystal, allowing the boy to construct his first lightsaber.
The Mining Guild, operating in concert with the Empire, was a network that harvested natural resources throughout the galaxy. One outpost on a small planetoid, which collected a mysterious green gas, drew the attention of giant purrgil creatures…and the Ghost crew of rebels. After a dramatic confrontation, the facility was destroyed, though the Mining Guild remains powerful.
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.
Growing up on his own during the age of the Empire, Ezra Bridger relied on his street smarts -- and subconscious Force abilities -- to survive. He became a con artist and small-time thief, doing what he needed to get by on his home planet Lothal. But this reality also hardened Ezra, who by the time he was 14 years old, had little trust for anyone. That would change with his introduction to the Ghost crew, a small band of rebels fighting back against the Empire. Ezra came to believe in their cause, and saw that he could help change the galaxy for the better. And with the help of Kanan Jarrus, he began to learn the ways of the Jedi.
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.
