|Hera Syndulla was a Twi'lek female revolutionary who became a central figure in the early rebellion against the Galactic Empire and the formation of the Alliance to Restore the Republic. Born the daughter of General Cham Syndulla on Ryloth with a brother who died young, she saw firsthand the devastation of the Clone Wars and the reign of the Empire on her homeworld. Syndulla became an expert pilot and left her homeworld and her father's planetary resistance behind, setting off across the galaxy to build her own resistance movement against the Empire aboard her starship, the Ghost. Kanan Jarrus, a Jedi who survived Order 66, joined her during the Gorse conflict. Her crew, which mounted an insurgency on Lothal, eventually was comprised of Mandalorian warrior Sabine Wren, Lasat survivor Garazeb Orrelios, Syndulla's life-long astromech droid Chopper, and Padawan Ezra Bridger. The rebellion Syndulla led on Lothal attracted the attention of such Imperial leaders as Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin and the Sith Lord Darth Vader, but it also gained notice by Senator Bail Organa and his efforts to coordinate activities between various rebel cells in the galaxy. One of those cells was Phoenix Cell, which Syndulla and her crew joined in 4 BBY. Syndulla herself became Phoenix Leader, leading various starfighter operations for the cell. In 2 BBY, the cell became one of the first to join the Rebel Alliance upon its formation. Their forces were devastated by Grand Admiral Thrawn during the Battle of Atollon, and Syndulla helped the Rebel Alliance rebuild at their headquarters on Yavin 4. Syndulla was promoted to the rank of General and continued to serve the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War, becoming a legend of the Alliance.
