"I'm not a terrorist. I'm a patriot. And resistance is not terrorism."
―Saw Gerrera[src]

Saw Gerrera was a human male resistance fighter who, as a leading member of the Onderon rebels, fought against the Confederacy of Independent Systems on Onderon during the Clone Wars. He and his sister, Steela Gerrera, were instrumental in the rebel liberation of their homeworld during the Battle of Onderon. He later became a key member in the fight against the Galactic Empire and the formation of the Alliance to Restore the Republic. His tactics against the Empire led him to be seen as an extremist, one whose notoriety was recognized by the Empire and, many years later, the New Republic.

In the early resistance against the Separatist Alliance on Onderon, Gerrera and his fellow soldiers were outnumbered and out-fought by the Separatist Droid Army. They requested help from the Jedi High Council, which led the Grand Army of the Republic in its fight against the Separatists, but the Jedi Order chose not to become actively involved in the fighting on Onderon. Instead, they sent a team of advisorsGenerals Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Commander Ahsoka Tano, and Clone Captain CT-7567 ("Rex")—to train the Onderonian fighters. The Jedi and the fcee Captain Rex taught them proper techniques and strategies for taking on the battle droid army, and, through their efforts, the rebels began to turn the tide. Gerrera came to resent that the rebels chose Steela as their leader, and he was soon captured in an ill-concocted solo effort to rescue the deposed king Ramsis Dendup from the Separatists. They were both rescued by the rebels, who eventually mounted a final battle against the Separatists. Through their efforts, the rebels liberated their world and returned Dendup to the throne. The fight, however, came at a personal cost: Steela was killed during the final battle, and Gerrera was left to mourn his sister—feeling responsible for her death.

At the end of the Clone Wars, the Republic was transformed into the Galactic Empire. Gerrera fought against the Imperial Military and led a resistance group known as the Partisans from the desert moon Jedha. His resistance cell, a continuation of the fighters from the Clone Wars, was one of the first in the group of cells that formed the Rebel Alliance. He was later involved in the Rebel to steal the plans to the Imperial superweapon known as the Death Star, by which time his more-extreme tactics had come to stand in stark contrast with those of Alliance leaders Bail Organa and Mon Mothma. During the time of the New Republic, Senator Ransolm Casterfo suggested that Gerrera and his Partisans, though part of the Rebel Alliance, engaged in terrorist tactics.

Early life and careerEdit

Onderonian humans

Saw and Steela handle their choice firearms—Steela, a sniper rifle, Saw, an explosives launcher.

Saw Gerrera was a human male who was born on the jungle planet Onderon during the last years of the Galactic Republic.[10] Growing up within the walls of Onderon's capital city of Iziz with his sister Steela Gerrera, Saw learned to greatly respect Onderon's[11] monarch, longtime King Ramsis Dendup.[12] In 22 BBY, thousands of star systems seceded from the Republic and formed their own galactic government, the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Soon, the Republic and Confederacy broke into all-out war—a Clone War—and[13] King Dendup sided with the Republic[14] and its newly-acquired Grand Army of clone troopers.[13]

In the year 20 BBY as the Clone War sustained itself on battlefronts across the galaxy, at[15] the behest of the Confederate Head of State Count[16] Dooku of Serenno, the[17] Separatist Droid Army invaded Saw's homeworld and subjected its citizens to Confederate law.[18] And to make matters worse for Saw, King Dendup was ousted from his royal throne and replaced with King Sanjay Rash, a "puppet leader" who answered directly to Count Dooku. King Rash enacted a Royal Proclamation that declared any who tried to usurp him from his throne would be declared a terrorist.[19] Deeply troubled for Onderon's future and undeterred that he and Steela had banished from Iziz for openly defying King Rash,[1] Saw and Steela began to gather resources and other like-minded individuals in the hopes of forming a resistance to fight against Rash and his battle droid forces.[20]

Helping hand from the JediEdit

"He fashions himself as our leader, though no one elected him."
―Steela, on how Saw arose to lead the freedom fighters[src]
Saw Lux Anakin Ahsoka Jedi Temple

Saw and Bonteri discuss their plight with the Jedi Council and request their aid in liberating Onderon from the Confederacy.

Some time later, Saw had become the defacto leader of the Onderon rebels, and as a result of being banished from Iziz, the rebels took up residence in an abandoned outpost within a group of ancient ruins in Sector S-29 of the wilderness.[20] Around this time, Lux Bonteri, the son[21] of the late Mina Bonteri, the former senator of Onderon in the Republic's Galactic Senate,[22] joined Saw and his resistance. Having obtained enough armor, blasters, and various other small arms to supply their forces, Saw, Steela, and Bonteri plotted to take back Iziz for Onderon; the rebel leaders, however, after a number of small skirmishes with battle droid forces, came to the realization that they were both under-equipped and had neither the training nor skills to wage open war against the Confederacy. Therefore, Saw and Bonteri reached out to the Republic, requesting aid. As a result, the esteemed Jedi High Council on the Republic's capital world, Coruscant, heard Saw and Bonteri's story via HoloNet transmission. Diminutive Grand Master Yoda promised that the Jedi Order would find a way to aid them.[3]

A short time later, the freedom fighters were alerted to an intrusion in jungle Sector S-11 and Steela led a squad to investigate. Shortly, Steela, mounted on a dalgo steed, returned with Yoda's promise: Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, his Togruta Padawan learner, Ahsoka Tano, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, and 501st Legion clone trooper CT-7567, nicknamed "Rex." Saw, mounted on his reptavian ruping, welcomed the four Republic military advisors to his world. Skywalker informed Saw that they couldn't fight the Battle of Onderon for the resistance—Onderon, after all, was legitimately aligned with the Confederacy, no matter how illegitimate Saw viewed the situation—but he would train Saw's resistance to fight well on their own.[3]

OnderonianRebellion-WOTF

The Republic advisors train Saw and his resistance at the secret encampment in the Onderon wilderness.

Rex explained that as a clone trooper, he would assist the Jedi Generals, and after relocating a half-kilometer to a clearing in the jungle where a captured Separatist Armored Assault Tank was left dormant, Jedi Commander Tano and Clone Captain Rex instructed the freedom fighters on how to disable the tank: they had drop a pair of Electro Magnetic Pulse grenades—"droid poppers"—into both the tank's cockpits, one for the pilot and one for the gunner, respectively. Saw and Bonteri teamed for the exercise, but sharing in a tense rivalry, incidentally sabotaged one another by refusing to cooperate. Disgusted, Saw ridiculed Bonteri for being a "terrible soldier;" which disappointed the Jedi advisors. As the day wore on, Saw grew increasingly frustrated, so he berated Steela for regularly attending to Bonteri, the two of whom shared a mutual attraction. The confrontation coming almost to blows, Steela diffused the two men, explaining that there would be both a time for the direct fight that Saw desired, and the political speeches that Bonteri excelled at.[3]

The rebels next returned to the encampment, where General Skywalker and Rex demonstrated how to most efficiently disable droideka Security droids. Protected by a deflector shield, droidekas were immune to blaster bolts. Skywalker, thus, indicated that a slowly rolled droid popper was the best way to disable the droids. Confident in his abilities, Saw stepped up and attempted the technique first; Saw, however, rolled the grenade too quickly and failed to penetrate the shield. Bonteri tried next and succeeded. Later, after many tries and much coaching from Tano, Saw managed to roll the grenade at the right speed and pierce the shield.[3]

Epguide502

Saw rushed to the battlefront at the first sign that their base was under attack.

Shortly thereafter, the Jedi advisors moved on to coaching the rebels on how to properly utilize their blaster rifles. Steela, a very skilled sniper, impressed the Jedi, but while practicing, was alerted to see that their encampment was under attack: Separatist B1 battle droids and an Assault Tank pushed through the brush and opened fire on the rebels. Saw narrowly avoided by taken out by a missile blast from a heavy weapons super battle droid, and advanced onto the very frontline of the skirmish and returned fire. At a signal from the Jedi and Steela, Saw and other rebels heaved disruptor explosives into the path of the droids, where they exploded. Still outgunned, Steela loosed the dalgos, falumpasets, and tee-muss mammals, which stampeded and trampled the remaining droids. Only the armored tank remaining, Saw and Bonteri tried once more to disable the tank. On this attempt, however, the rebels worked together and succeed in destroying the tank with a pair of thermal detonators. Elated in their first victory, but knowing that their base location was compromised, the rebels and advisors concocted a plan to infiltrate Iziz and pose as civilians to wage the guerrilla war from within the capital.[3]

Taking the fight to the ConfederacyEdit

"The people were fearful, Master."
"Indeed. Judging from the reactions I saw today, I'm afraid they will mistake your intentions."
"[...]"
"I don't understand. Why are they afraid?"
―Tano, Kenobi, and Saw examine the public perception of the rebels[src]

Later in the day, posing as hunters, the rebels and military advisors boarded a pair of dalgo-yoked Mandolorian transports and traveled to Iziz and fooled the "dim-witted" OOM command battle droid checkpoint in order to gain pass through the city's ray shielded main gate. The rebels then split up; Saw alerted other rebels already within the city that the time to fight had come, while Steela, Bonteri, Tano, and others went in search of new recruits.[3]

Saw reckless in Iziz Onderon

Saw fires on Separatist droids near Iziz civilians, which caused the civilians to fear Saw and the rebels.

As time went on, many more Onderonians enlisted with the independence fighters, and they took shelter in a safehouse deep in the city. Saw, Bonteri, and Steela received regular intelligence and guidance from not only Skywalker, Kenobi, Tano, and Rex, but the Jedi Masters on Coruscant as well. Saw and the rebels took as many chances as they could to disrupt battle droid patrols and destroy droids harassing Iziz civilians; sometimes the rebels engaged in as many as five engagements in a single day—sometimes, even in high-traffic areas, such as Malgan Market. Saw often opened fire on Separatist minions publicly, which caused fear to mount in the civilian population—despite the fact that civilian casualties sat at zero.[12]

One day, Saw and his resistance held committee in their Iziz safehouse, where Skywalker congratulated them on waging a thus-far successful campaign. Kenobi and Tano, however, believed that the public perception of Saw's rebels had not been as planned; the people were fearful of the sudden violence that had besieged their city. Saw, however, believed that the people were fearful simply because the droids were still active—that he hadn't done enough to demobilize the Confederates. Steela and Bonteri added that they had to assure the general populace that the freedom fighters were just that: fighting for the freedom of the people. Steela believed the rebels had to win the hearts and minds of the people to gain their trust, something Saw did not understand. In order to prove to the civilians that the rebels could oust the Separatists, Bonteri proposed that they strike the Iziz power generator. In agreement, Skywalker, Kenobi, and Rex returned to the Core Worlds, having outfitted the rebels as planned.[4]

Lux and Saw plan their attack Iziz

The resistance leaders devise strategy to siege the Iziz power generators.

The Jedi Knights pledged that they would continue to provide credits to the Saw's movement, and also stationed Tano to remain on Onderon. At dusk, Saw, Tano, Bonteri, and Steela scouted out the power generator complex. Lying prone on a rooftop, Bonteri explained that if they could manage to disable the power compound it would cause a city-wide power outage, which, given time, would bring the Droid Army to a literal standstill: the droids operated independently of a control computer, but still had to recharge periodically using power cells.[12] However, before assaulting the generators, the rebels concluded that they needed to know more about the compound. Saw took it upon himself to gather the desired intel: he quickly descended the building and brutishly ripped the head off of a patrolling "clanker" in the street and returned to the rooftop where a robolobotomy was performed using a Republic-provided robolobotomy device. From the holographic images provided from the cranial unit, Saw and the rebels came to the conclusion that any attack on the compound would be futile; the droids were too numerous. Bonteri, however, saw an opportunity and added that if they had enough firepower it could be done—a Separatist Assault Tank needed to be hijacked.[4]

In order to secure the tank, the resistance concocted a ruse: on a nearby street, rebel Dono detonated an EMP-loaded airspeeder in the path of droid Patrol 118, beginning the attack. Saw, utilizing droid poppers and a DC-15A blaster, took down the entire patrol, with the exception of the commander droid. The rebels let the commander call for reinforcements, hoping that the Separatists would deliver aid in the form of an Assault Tank. First, however, a pair of droidekas were sent in. Outmatched from the front, Saw and Bonteri navigated behind the droidekas in a flanking maneuver.[12]

Saw dodges battle droids

Saw dodges enemy small arms fire during combat in the streets of Iziz.

True to his training, Saw rolled his EMP grenade into the droideka's bubble shield and successfully disabled it, but Bonteri's went too fast, and alerted the other droideka that there was danger behind. The droid turned and fired at its adversaries, but Saw acted quickly, shoving Bonteri to safety. Saw dove behind the disabled droideka, but was pinned down, so Steela leapt into action and deposited a droid popper gently into the droideka's shield bubble, disabling it. Just then, the desired Assault Tank rumbled onto the street and fired on the rebels. Saw and Bonteri rapidly closed the distance between them and the tank, taking down its B2 super battle droid escorts on the way, and disabled the repulsorcraft using the duel droid popper strategy, just as they were trained. Saw then boarded the tank and attempted to get it running again, but to no avail. Steela, however, having a self-described "woman's touch," and being the better pilot of the two of them, managed to start it up once more.[4]

Saw piloted the tank to the entrance to the generator compound and blew in the compound's two metal gateways. Steela sniped the droid guards while Saw waited for the tank's laser cannon to recharge. Bonteri and Steela fought off several BX-series droid commandos before Saw was able to target the generator itself, and when he fired on it, the ensuing explosion plunged the entire city into darkness. Saw donned night vision goggles in order to see, and was pleased to see that the freedom fighters were being cheered on by the Iziz citizens. Saw, Steela, Tano, and Bonteri returned to the safehouse and celebrated, raising drinks for Onderon. Skywalker, Kenobi, and Rex appeared via the HoloNet and a holoprojector and congratulated the resistance troopers. Kenobi added, however, that the time had come for the movement to elect an official leader. Confident that he would be elected by popular vote, Saw was disheartened when instead Steela was chosen by the Onderonian soldiers. Angry but not irrational, Saw stormed off.[4]

Saw spots the droid convoy in Iziz

Saw calls out the location of the Confederate convoy to Steela and her squad of rebels while wearing a hood.

King Rash and his Separatist forces had truly begun to feel the pressure from the rebel raids throughout Iziz, so the Confederates[23] were granted new droid legions of reinforcements headed by the brilliant Super tactical droid General Kalani. The reinforcements were[24] delivered in several Multi-Troop Transports on the orders of Count Dooku himself.[12] Later, Saw hid incognito on a city street and helped Steela and more freedom fighters destroy a Confederate Army convoy that consisted of a Troop Transport, an Assault Tank, and many battle droids. Saw single-handedly wrecked the Assault Tank using his training; he blew up the hovertank agilely using two grenades. Steela then delivered a speech to the Onderonoians who had gathered amid the wreckage to hear what the freedom fighters had to say—she reminded them that Rash had committed treason against the Onderon people by selling out the world to the Separatist Alliance and requested that they join Saw and the rebels to reclaim the world and reinstate the rightful king, Ramsis Dendup.[23]

The King's blessingEdit

"The Separatists have very little compassion—or patience—for things that stand in their way."
"We have a duty to protect what's ours, General. A duty once entrusted to you."
"I thought you'd depleted your arrogance with Kalani."
"It replenishes every hour."
―General Tandin and Saw discuss their patriotic duties after Saw's lengthy interrogation[src]

Shortly, Saw and the rebel leadership returned to their safehouse and were informed by trooper Dono that former King Dendup was scheduled to be executed by King Rash the next day in the central Yolahn Square. Steela surmised that Rash intended to kill his predecessor simply as an example to the rebels; to humiliate the freedom fighters. Tano reasoned that if Dendup was executed he would become a martyr, and bolster the rebel cause. For his part, however, Saw ignored both the words of the war advisor and his sister and took it upon himself to rescue King Dendup before Rash even had a chance to publicly declare Dendup a traitor. Steela ordered Saw to stand down, but Saw, believing that his life was worth the risk of preserving Dendup's, covertly set out nonetheless, unaware that Steela had tasked Dono to tail him.[23]

Saw and Dendup are caught

Saw and King Dendup are detected and arrested in the Unifar Temple courtyard.

After donning a cloak, Saw jogged to the the foot of the Unifar Temple in Yolahn Square, and scaled the many-story temple utilizing a grappling hook. Once atop the temple roof, Saw quickly spotted King Dendup in the temple courtyard and beheaded a nearby sentry droid while making his way to him. Saw bowed before his lord, swearing fealty to the former king and introduced himself, explaining to the king the execution situation. In angst, Dendup chastised Saw for "interfering with the affairs of the throne" by forming the resistance and remissed to Saw his failure as Saw's king: by not choosing to ally Onderon with either the Republic or the Confederacy during the Separatist Crisis, a side had been chosen for him;[23] and as aresult of Dendup's choice not to choose, the Onderonian Civil War had broken out,[8] and Onderonians like Saw had stepped up to rectify his errs. Nonplussed, Saw encouraged Dendup, surprising the king with news that the rebels had the support of the Jedi Order. Greatly encouraged, Dendup agreed to escape with Saw, but when Saw fired his grappling hook to escape the royal prison courtyard,[7] he was frustrated to find that it was blocked by a one-way shield, which alerted the Unifar Temple to the intrusion. As klaxons wailed and spotlights targeted, Saw and Dendup were taken into custody by a sextet of droidekas.[23]

Saw was transferred to the royal central command of the palace, where at Kalani and King Rash's order, Saw was cuffed and hung in a containment field and placed under interrogation by Kalani. General Tandin of the Royal Onderon Militia supervised the investigation.[23] Kalani tortured Saw for throughout the night, but Saw refused to divulge the droid general in any of of the rebel secrets. As a result, Kalani grew increasingly embittered, so he increased the dose of electric torture and the longevity of the doses; hoping Saw would crack.[7] His body smoking from the electricity, Saw held to his beliefs and human will and suffered the torture until Kalani and his EV unit interrogator droid heightened the electric shocks to great enough wattage to easily kill Saw. Saw hung while the torture took its toll not only on his body, but on his mind and spirit; Saw hardened himself and had begun on his irreversible path to becoming a remorseless soldier.[8] Tandin, feeling sympathetic to a fellow Onderonian, commanded Kalani and his to give Saw rest. Kalani reluctantly agreed.[23]

Tandin Kalani torture Saw

Saw's torture at the hands of Kalani began his conversion of caring soldier to what many would later call a remorseless madman.

Shortly, Saw was given drink by Tandin, who questioned why Saw had chosen to rebel against Rash's throne, believing that Onderon's past—Dendup as king—had not anything to do with the worlds future under Confederate rule. Saw explained that he chose to rebel because Rash chosen to take whatever he pleased from the people and do with it what he wished, proclaiming himself a patriot of Onderon, not a terrorist in bondage as Tandin accused. Saw boomed over Tandin's arguments, proclaiming that he fought in Dendup's name for the former king had chosen to politically fight for the people, therefore not choosing to side with either the Republic or the Confederacy for his own gain as Rash so quickly had.[23]


Career definedEdit

"I'm sorry for you loss."
"Thanks, but it's over now. Lets just leave it at that."
―Ahsoka Tano and Saw, during Steela's cremony[src]

The war continued on and the resistance eventually moved their headquarters from the urban population of Iziz to the remote eastern mountain range known as the Onderon highlands, where, back in the jungle, Saw was reunited with his ruping. At the highlands, Saw and the rebels constructed a new base, known as "the nest;" named for the rupings who used the highlands as a nesting ground.[11] During this time, Padawan Tano and Bonteri enacted a quick mission back to Iziz where they utilized a holographic message of King-in-exile Dendup declared his allegiance to the Onderon rebels, whom he called patriots of true Onderon. Upon their return, Bonteri informed Saw that the civilians had taken to the Iziz streets to riot as a result of hearing Dendup's message. Encouraged, Saw voiced his desire to join the civilians and take the fight straight to Rash in the streets of Iziz, but Steela, Tano, Tandin, and King Dendup, all disagreed—they believed the rebels needed to avoid civilian casualties at all costs, thus the Confederate forces had to be drawn out of the crowded city and into the wilderness of the highlands.[6]

It wasn't long before Kalani located the rebels in the highlands and sent his army out to confront them. Meanwhile, the rebels and Royal bodyguards dug into the jungle mesas and prepared to repel the droid infantry. Once the battle of the Onderon highlands began, Saw led a group of ruping riders, providing air support for the dalgo-mounted cavalry commanded by Tandin. The Confederate forces was caught off-guard by the rebels attack and were mostly destroyed by the rebels diverse forces of rupings, cavalry, snipers, and blaster cannons mounted on towering fambaas. Saw and his riders swept over the battlefront, destroying the droid's support vehicles with grenades.[11] However, before the skirmish could be won, three HMP droid gunships entered the fray and systematically turned the tide of battle by killing much of Tandin's cavalry and fambaas. Saw's ruping riders were downed by two, and Saw was forced to hide from the droid fighters and recollect himself. Seizing the next opportunity, Saw bore his ruping towards a distracted gunship and lobbed a detonator at the hovering droid. However, the detonator did no damage to the craft as it was heavily ray shielded. The gunship next targeted Saw, and it managed to kill his ruping, throwing Saw to the ground. With the battle's tide having turned, Tandin's cavalry retreated, and the Royal General hoisted Saw atop his dalgo as the surviving rebel forces retreated back to the nest in complete disarray.[6]

At the nest, the Gerreras, Tandin, Tano, and Bonteri convened to strategize. Tano explained that she had contacted her Jedi superiors Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi and requested aid from the Jedi Council, but he wasn't sure he would be able to help the rebels. Refusing to be discouraged, Steela voiced that since the droid could not be stopped before reaching the nest, the fort had to be fortified for the incoming invasion. Emboldened by her spirit, Saw expressed how proud he was of his sister. She accredited her skills as a leader to watching Saw.[6]

Saw returned to organize the defense at the battlefront a short distance fro the nest, and shortly, Padawan Tano, Bonteri, and Steela, arrived bearing new armament provided by by Skywalker and Kenobi through the Weequay Hondo Ohnaka, the pirate lord of the Ohnaka Gang: Sienar Fleet Systems RPS-6 rocket launchers. Saw immediately took one of the rocket launchers and fired a missile at a nearby gunship. The droid ship was brought down by the single shot; revitalizing the rebels' resolve to fight now that they had a weapon that could deal damage. The launchers were being distributed among the insurgents, when word came that the nest had been found and was under attack by the remaining gunships.[6]

Steela hurriedly took the rupings with her troops and headed the short distance back atop the mesas where the fort was located in order to protect King Dendup.[11] Saw, meanwhile, with a pair of soldiers, supported Steela by distracting the gunships. Within minutes, only one gunship remained, and Saw took aim with his launcher and shot down the final droid ship. The mortally damaged ship careened through the sky and smashed into a cliff face where Steela was protecting Dendup from several commando droids. The weakened cliff face gave way, and Saw was horrified to see that Steela had fallen with it, and was hanging from the cliff edge. Tano began using the Force to life Steela to safety, but the droid gunship remained partially active, and it fired on Tano, striking her in the should with a bolt. Tano's wound disrupted her concentration long enough for her telekinetic hold on Steela to be severed. Saw ran in horror to his fallen sister as she fell to her death on the rocks below. Saw cradled Steela's lifeless body, and recounted that it had been he who had shot down the gunship.[6] Saw was racked with a guilt; a guilt he would never banish from his mind.[8]

The rebels emerged victorious over the Separatists in the highlands, and the Confederate defeat prompted Dooku to withdraw Kalani and his forces from Onderon and move to the planet Agamar due to the apparent long-term conflict the rebels intended to fight. And later in the day, the rebels returned to Iziz, where Dendup was reinstated as King—Sanjay Rash having been assassinated by Kalani on Doouk's orders after the Confederate defeat in the highlands. Later, a funeral was held for Steela on the steps of the Unifar Temple in Yolahn Square. Thousands of Onderonians turned up for the funeral in mourning over Steela's untimely death. Saw paid his respects over his sister's sarcophagus and rejected Tano and Bonteri's condolences, angry he couldn't prevent Steela's death.[6]
