The Occupation Episode Guide
Ryder Azadi is the former governor of Lothal and now an active rebel. When the Empire came to his planet, he stood against Imperial tyranny with the Bridger family, and was accused of treason for doing so. He was later freed from an Imperial prison by the Bridgers and returned to Lothal, living in the city outskirts with just a white Loth-cat as his only companion. Ezra, son of the Bridgers, sought Ryder out to find out what became of his parents.
After the Empire discovered that Old Jho -- owner of the popular Old Jho's Pit Stop cantina -- was aiding rebels, they arrested and executed him. The Empire assumed ownership of the watering hole, placing it under the stewardship of Valen Rudor. There, Rudor once again encountered the rebels. He led a hunt for Ezra Bridger and his friends through the city's underground tunnels, but was unable to apprehend them.
