Hera Syndulla was a female Twi'lek rebel who lived during the transitional period between the fall of the Galactic Republic and rise of the First Galactic Empire. Born as a scion to an influential family on Ryloth, she would see the devastating effects of the Clone Wars and the tyrannical Empire that arose to supplant it. Daughter to famous Twi'lek Resistance leader Cham Syndullaand an adept pilot, Syndulla would travel across the galaxy in hopes of forming her own resistance movement against the Empire in her VCX-100 light freighter Ghost. Sure-footed and determined, she kept a secret Blurrg-1120 holdout blaster in her boot and, following the Gorse conflict, eventually fell in love with Jedi Purge survivor Kanan Jarrus, whom she successfully convinced to become a rebel. Leading a misfit group of rebels known as the Spectres on the agricultural backwater of Lothal, she would play a key part in the early rebellion against the Emperor's New Order and become a General in the Alliance to Restore the Republic.
