Ezra Bridger was a human male Jedi Padawan who became a rebel fighter and revolutionary leader in the early rebellionagainst the Galactic Empire. He was born to Ephraim and Mira Bridger, whose public criticism of the Empire led to their imprisonment, leaving Bridger an orphan on the planet Lothal as a child. He joined the rebel crew of the Ghost in 5 BBY and became the Jedi apprentice of Kanan Jarrus. Bridger's abilities grew quickly, and a message of hope he broadcasted in the Lothal sector inspired a number of rebel cells to begin working together to fight the Empire.
In 4 BBY, Bridger learned that his parents were killed attempting to escape from prison. The young Jedi, already having struggled with his dark side, became more conflicted, coming to a head on the ancient Sith world of Malachor where he recovered a Sith holocron in the hopes of destroying the Sith.
