- "What do you need that decoder for?"
"My friends need it to stop an Imperial shipment."
- ―Zare Leonis and Ezra Bridger
Decoders were devices that could decode data and information. The rebels from Lothal used a decoder, which Ezra Bridger stole from the Academy for Young Imperials on Lothal, to discover the location of a giant kyber crystal of great power. After Ezra's rebel associates had finished using the stolen decoder, they passed it to Zare Leonis' girlfriend Merei Spanjaf. Merei used the same decoder to access an encrypted Imperial government file which revealed that Zare's sister Dhara Leonis had been forcibly inducted into a secret Imperial program known as Project Harvester.
