Wookiees Fight on Kessel
"Care to let me in on the secret?"
"Kid, I'm about to let everyone in on the secret."
―Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus, just before the latter reveals himself as a Jedi[src]

The mission to free Wookiee prisoners was an operation undertaken by the rebels who were based on and around the planet Lothal five years before the Battle of Yavin. The rebels learned what they believed was the location of the Wookiees, who had been enslaved by the Galactic Empire, and attempted to rescue the Wookiees aboard Transport 651, a Gozanti-class cruiser. Unknown to the rebels, however, was that they had walked into a trap set by Agent Kallus of the Imperial Security Bureau. They soon realized the Wookiees were not aboard the vessel, and the rebels were forced to flee from Kallus and his forces. During the escape, one of the rebels, Ezra Bridger, was captured, forcing the rest of the crew to later return and rescue him. While a prisoner, Bridger learned that the Wookiees were being taken to the spice mines of the planet Kessel.

The rebels soon arrived at the spice mines of Kessel, where their ship, the Ghost, fired upon the Imperial stormtroopers guarding the slaves. The rebels were able to make it into the mine and attack the stormtroopers, during which time they freed the prisoners. They were confronted by Kallus and his troops, who opened fire on the rebels and the Wookiees. As the Ghost engaged in battle with TIE fighters, the rebel leader, Kanan Jarrus, ignited his lightsaber and revealed himself as a Jedi who had survived the destruction of the Jedi Order. While Jarrus and other members of his crew secured most of the Wookiees, Bridger went in pursuit of the Wookiee child Kitwarr, who was being chased by a stormtrooper. Jarrus saved them both from Agent Kallus, and the Ghost fled from Kessel with the Wookiees, freeing them from captivity.

After the rebels' successful rescue of the Wookiees, Kallus contacted the Grand Inquisitor, an Imperial Jedi hunter, to inform him that the rebels were led by a Jedi. This led to several more confrontations with both Kallus and the Inquisitor as the rebels continued their operations against the Empire. (Read more…)


Heist in Capital CityEdit

Ezra Steals speeder
"An Imperial supply grab that should be simple and will pay handsomely."
―Kanan Jarrus[src]

Five years before the Battle of Yavin, a group of rebels carried out operations against the Galactic Empire on the Outer Rim planet of Lothal. One mission was contracted by crime lord Cikatro Vizago, who commissioned the rebels to mount a heist to steal blasters from the Empire. The operation was carried out in Capital City, where the rebels attempted to steal the blasters. They were interrupted, however, by a street orphan named Ezra Bridger, who stole one of the sets of crates. This led to a chase throughout the city, with Bridger attempting to outrun the rebels. Their chase made its way out of the city, and the rebels fought off stormtroopers and TIE fighters as they fled. Bridger eventually got away from the rebels, but was saved by their ship, the Ghost, which shot down an approaching TIE fighter. Kanan Jarrus, the leader of the rebels, offered Bridger a chance to escape as more fighters approached, and Bridger leapt onto the ship with his crate.

The Ghost was pursued by several TIE fighters, leading to a brief firefight throughout the atmosphere and into space. The ship was able to escape into hyperspace before returning to Lothal, where it scrambled its signal so it could not be recognized. The rebels brought many of the crates, which also contained food and other supplies, to a refugee settlement called Tarkintown, where the rebels provided it for free to the refugees. Jarrus and Hera Syndulla, the crew's captain, delivered the blasters to Vizago, who paid them both in money and in information—specifically, the potential whereabouts of Wookiees who had been enslaved by the Empire, leading the rebels to undertake a mission to rescue them. Bridger later joined the crew, having found an adopted family in them as a result of the heist. (Read more…)


Mission to steal Imperial weaponsEdit

"The simplest gesture of kindness can fill a galaxy with hope."
―Bail Organa, to Kanan Jarrus[src]

Five years before the Battle of Yavin, the rebel crew of the Ghost undertook a mission to steal and, ultimately, destroy illegal T-7 ion disruptor rifles from the Galactic Empire. The mission began as a means of securing credits needed to replenish their ship's supplies and continue their operations against the Empire; the crime lord Cikatro Vizago, who operated on the Outer Rim planet Lothal, was willing to pay for the weapons. The mission took the rebels to the planet Garel, which they traveled to aboard a star commuter shuttle. Aboard that shuttle was Minister Maketh Tua, who was attempting to procure the weapons from their manufacturer, Amda Wabo, with the help of two droidsR2-D2 and C-3PO, who were secretly working for Senator Bail Organa of Alderaan to destroy the weapons. The rebels were able to learn the location of the weapons in the Garel City Spaceport, and stole them before the Empire could obtain them. After a brief firefight on Garel, the rebels escaped back to Lothal.

Once on Lothal, the rebels attempted to sell the weapons to Vizago, but were quickly discovered by Agent Kallus of the Imperial Security Bureau. This led to a brief battle against Imperial forces, in which the rebels destroyed the disruptors so they could not fall into Imperial hands. The rebels escaped Agent Kallus' forces and returned the droids to Senator Organa, who was able to learn about the rebels from R2-D2. In the aftermath of the mission, the rebels became part of a larger rebel movement that Organa led, though only the pilot of the Ghost, Hera Syndulla, knew of their involvement at first. They later learned of their involvement, as well as Organa's, after other rebel cells came to their assistance during mission to rescue the crew's field leader, Kanan Jarrus, from the Empire.

Duel on Stygeon PrimeEdit

Kanan vs Inquisitor
"Yes, I'm afraid Master Luminara died with the Republic, but her bones continue to serve the Empire, luring the last Jedi to their ends."
―The Inquisitor[src]

The Duel on Stygeon Prime was a confrontation in the Spire, a prison on the planet Stygeon Prime, between the Galactic Empire and a group of Lothal-based rebels who carried out an insurgency against the Empire's rule. The duel, primarily fought between former Padawan Kanan Jarrus and the Jedi hunter known as the Grand Inquisitor, took place five years before the Battle of Yavin, as part of a mission to rescue Jedi Master Luminara Unduli from Imperial captivity. The rebels learned that Unduli, a former member of the Jedi Council, had survived the Clone Wars and the ensuing Jedi Purge, and was being held prisoner by the Empire. However, Unduli had in reality been executed by the Empire years earlier and the residual Force essence within her bones was being used to lure surviving Jedi to their deaths. The Grand Inquisitor, the Imperial Jedi hunter who killed Unduli, intended to trap the rebels in the Spire and kill former Padawan Kanan Jarrus and his apprentice, Ezra Bridger.

The rebels infiltrated the Spire after arriving on Stygeon Prime and made their way through the facility. Jarrus and Bridger located Unduli's cell, where they learned she was dead and that the Inquisitor was waiting for them. Jarrus and the Inquisitor engaged in a lightsaber duel, during which the Inquisitor attempted to turn Bridger to the dark side of the Force. When the boy refused, the Inquisitor aimed to kill them both, but they were able to flee and, ultimately, escape the facility with the other rebels. The Inquisitor would nonetheless continue hunting them, intending to destroy them and all remaining Jedi. (Read more…)


Attack on Imperial Troop TransportsEdit

Ezra rescues prisoners
"Wait, you did all this… for fruit?"
"No! Okay, maybe a little."
―A stormtrooper and Ezra Bridger[src]

Five years prior to the Battle of Yavin, two rebels who operated on the Outer Rim planet of Lothal, Ezra Bridger and Garazeb Orrelios, attacked three Imperial Troop Transports. Prior to the attack, the two were sent on a supply run by fellow rebel Hera Syndulla. During the supply run, the two rebels searched for meiloorun fruits, leading them to discover meilooruns that had been purchased by the Galactic Empire. Bridger attempted to steal the fruits from the Empire but the two were discovered, leading to a chase throughout the settlement of Kothal. During the chase, Orrelios hijacked a TIE fighter, and the two rebels escaped aboard the stolen ship.

Orrelios piloted the TIE fighter away from the settlement. The two planned to return to their ship, the Ghost, but discovered the Imperial Troop Transports who were carrying three prisoners: Morad Sumar, an old friend of Bridger's parents, as well as Sumar's wife and an Aqualish. The rebels mounted a rescue and successfully freed the prisoners. The three prisoners jumped from the moving ITTs, and Bridger found himself confronted by a number of stormtroopers. The rebels were eventually able to escape, along with one of the meilooruns they had been looking for, and hid the TIE fighter on Lothal—despite telling Syndulla and rebel leader Kanan Jarrus that they had destroyed it. Imperial HoloNet News later claimed that the transports were carrying innocent workers. Some time after that, Bridger worked with artist and fellow rebel Sabine Wren to paint the TIE fighter, which they went on to use in a mission to rescue Jarrus from Imperial captivity. (Read more…)


Attack on an Imperial convoyEdit

Phantom vs TIE fighter
"Well, we've gotten ourselves into another fine mess."
―Sabine Wren[src]

During their rebellion against the Galactic Empire, the rebel crew of the starship Ghost carried out an attack against an Imperial convoy on Lothal. The intelligence for the attack came from Ahsoka Tano, a rebel operative who secretly coordinated with cells such as the Ghost crew under the codename "Fulcrum." The information about the convoy's timing and route was accurate, but Tano's intelligence underestimated Imperial defenses. This led to at least four TIE/ln space superiority starfighters chasing the Phantom, the Ghost attack shuttle, which was carrying pilot Hera Syndulla, Mandalorian explosives expert Sabine Wren, and Jedi Padawan Ezra Bridger. Syndulla was able to outfly and destroy the TIE fighters, allowing the Phantom to escape.

Fulcrum's identity and the intelligence she provided became a point of contention for Wren, who wanted to know why the rebels were risking their lives on operations like the convoy attack. Syndulla assured her that they were part of something bigger and that there was a plan for fighting the Empire. After a mission to Fort Anaxes, where they were attacked by fyrnocks that inhabited the abandoned Grand Army of the Republic asteroid base and had to rely on one another to survive, Wren learned to trust Syndulla about the crew's mission.

"Let that be a lesson for you, my dear. Never underestimate the power of poetry."
―Holshef, to Merei Spanjaf[src]

Holshef was a human male native of the Outer Rim Territories planet Lothal. Although he had a great love for his homeworld, Holshef was disturbed by its slow ruination by the Galactic Empire. By 4 BBY, he was an old man with wispy white hair who painted and wrote poetry. His artistic expressions against the Empire's actions on Lothal resulted in an arrest warrant and forced him into hiding. He paid credits to Yahenna Laxo of the Gray Syndicate to stay safe from Imperial attention.

As rebellious activities increased on Lothal, the Empire also increased its efforts in corralling the planet's criminal underworld, and few elements escaped attention. The Empire targeted the Gray Syndicate's gambling operations and warehouses, before finally accomplishing the Syndicate's near total destruction by raiding its headquarters and killing Laxo. Her death left Holshef in danger, as there remained an Imperial bounty issued for the old man's capture. Thus, Merei Spanjaf, a human female who had come to know and like Holshef through her activities with the Syndicate, sought to spirit him off Lothal. (Read more…)
