Ezra Bridger was born on the planet of Lothal to Ephraim and Mira Bridger. He was born on Empire Day, the day the Galactic Republic transformed into the Galactic Empire. Ephraim and Mira didn't wish their son to grow up under the empire and started sending transmissions against the it. The Imperials found them and took them away when Ezra was only 7 years old.
Gasgano the Xexto from Troiken. Edit
As an orphan, Bridger got used to living by himself and found himself work by stealing things and selling them on the black market. He moved into the old abandoned LothalNet comm tower E-272 where he kept everything he owned and stole. He was eventually apprenticed to Ferpil Wallaway, a Xexto pickpocket and pawn shop owner. Ezra learnt everything Wallaway knew. Bridger befriended Moreena Krai, a girl his age.
At some time before meeting the Lothal Rebels, Ezra
The Lothal Rebels Edit
Ezra witnessed a Star Destroyer fly over Lothal Capital City and he traveled to the city to investigate. He watched from a rooftop as Kanan Jarrus, Sabine Wren and Garazeb Orrelios stole some crates from the imperials. Bridger didn't waste the opportunity and leapt onto a waiting speeder bike which was towing one of the crates. Kanan and Garazeb gave chase on other speeders while the Imperials attempted themselves to gain all of the crates back. Kanan managed to stop Bridger and offered him a ride his ship when TIE fighters arrived. Ezra leapt up with the crate, calling on his unknown force abilities to reach the ramp. Kanan was alerted of his force sensitivity after the jump and was intrigued. Ezra met the entire crew including the pilot Hera Syndulla and the droid Chopper. He sneaked into Kanan's quarters where he found his lightsaber and holocron. Kanan entered and Bridger returned the lightsaber, thinking that Jarrus hadn't seen him keep the holocron. The team told Ezra he would have to stay till the end of the mission and help free the Wookie prisoners. They docked with an Imperial Gozanti-Class cruiser and everyone except Bridger and Syndulla waited aboard the Ghost. Syndulla convinced him to go warn the others when a Star Destroyer approached having just exited hyperspace. Bridger warned them of the trap and they concluded that there were no wookies aboard. As they were leaving, Agent Kallus grabbed Ezra, and Zeb, who was in front of him, was forced to leave without him.
Bridger opened the holocron in his cell and watched a message from Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi about Order 66 and warning all remaining Jedi not to return to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. Ezra escaped from his cell and also discovered the Wookies actual location by taking an Imperial Cadet helmet and listening to the comm chatter. The Ghost returned, feeling bad for leaving Ezra behind when he wasn't even part of their crew. Bridger leapt from above vents and into the hallway as they landed in the destroyer's hangar. Bridger and rebels boarded again and left. The crew traveled to the mines of Kessel where they found the real location of the wookies but after freeing them, they were stalled by the arrival of Kallus. Kanan revealed his Jedi history to everyone by standing up and activating his lightsaber. Ezra saved Kitwarr, a little wookie from a stormtrooper before being confronted by Kallus. Jarrus saved Bridger from death, arriving in the Ghost. After freeing the wookies, the crew of the Ghost returned to Lothal near Bridger's home to drop him off. Ezra once again stole Kanan's lightsaber but returned the holocron. Kanan was aware the Ezra had stolen his weapon and followed him home. He told Bridger that he could keep the lightsaber as a useless relic and remain as he was, or return it and join the crew of the Ghost, becoming his padawan. Bridger thought about it and then accepted the deal, returning the lightsaber and joining the crew.
Early missions Edit
Ezra didn't start his training with Kanan straight away, instead going on a few missions with the crew. They took on a mission from Cikatro Vizago to steal some Imperial T-7 ion disruptors and managed to steal them from Minister Maketh Tua on Garel. Returning to Lothal with the disruptors and with Minister Tua's supposed droids R2-D2 and C-3PO on board as stowaways. While dealing with Vizago, C-3PO alerted the Empire to their location, thinking they would launch a rescue mission for the droids. Agent Kallus arrived but only to fight the rebels. Zeb and Kallus duelled with their Bo-rifles and Kallus got the better of the Lasat. Ezra used the force to push the ISB agent away before he could kill Zeb. Zeb, who hadn't liked Ezra very much, was grateful. Kanan was inspired to start Ezra's training the following day.
Ezra and Zeb got into an argument and Hera sent them to Kothal to find fruit and specifically a meiloorun fruit which was very rare. They attempted to steal one of them from Imperials but were split up when they failed. Zeb stole a TIE fighter and rescued Ezra from the Stormtroopers, making them even in favours. Hera ordered them to destroy the ship but on the way they saw Morad Sumar and Morida Sumar, friends of Ezra's parents getting taken away on some ITTs under the supervision of Yogar Lyste. Ezra wished to save them and convinced Zeb to help. Zeb claimed to be "Commander Meiloorun" over the comm which worked only for a bit. Ezra managed to free the prisoners and escape. They hid the TIE fighter instead of destroying it and claimed to Hera and Kanan that they had done what they were ordered to do although they later showed Sabine and she painted it.
Encountering the Dark Side Edit
Bridger was struggling with his Jedi Training and when Jarrus heard over one of Gall Trayvis's, (a rebel senator) transmissions that Luminara Unduli was alive and being held at the Spire on Stygeon Prime, he thought that if they could free her then Ezra could train under her. The Rebels arrived on Stygeon Prime and broke into the spire. After Ezra and Kanan arrived at Luminara's cell, they found out that she was dead and it was a trap. A Pau'an who introduced himself as the Grand Inquisitor stepped into the cell. Within seconds of duelling him the Inquisitor identified Jarrus's Jedi Master as Depa Billaba which was correct. The Inquisitor followed them as they ran to leave and threw his Inquisitor lightsaber at them as they escaped. Kanan told Ezra that he wouldn't try to train him but that he would just do it.
Undercover cadet Edit
Ezra was sent undercover as "Dev Morgan" to the Lothal Imperial academy with Chopper as an Imperial Astromech. Jai Kell, another cadet befriended him but two others Nazhros Oleg and Zare Leonis disliked him. Leonis caught Bridger stealing a decoder from Agent Kallus's office and surprisingly he helped Bridger. Zare told Bridger that his sister Dhara Leonis was missing. He believed that the Empire was lying when they told him that she had run away. After helping each other and each using the decoder for different purposes, they noticed that Bridger and Jai Kell met the criteria for the Grand Inquisitor. They decided to help Kell escape and convinced him that night to win the next challenge with them and get inside an AT-DP walker to escape. The plan didn't go quite as planned when Oleg won as well as Kell and Leonis instead of Bridger. Ezra told the other two cadets to stick to the plan and they entered the walker without Ezra. After stunning the Combat Driver and Oleg. They made for the doorway and Ezra jumped on top of the walker. Sabine and Zeb picked up Kell and Bridger at the doorway where Leonis decided to stay and see what happened to his sister, pretending to fire after the Rebels.
Empire Day Edit
Ezra turned 15 on Empire Day when celebrations took place all over the galaxy being the anniversary of the creation of the Galactic Empire. The Rebels detonated a bomb in a new TIE advanced v1, ruining the parade. The Rebels made their way to Ezra's old residence before he had moved to the tower. There they discovered Tseebo hiding and considering the information he held, they decided to take him out of the city. The Grand Inquisitor, Agent Kallus, many Stormtroopers and ITTs gave chase but the crew escaped in the Ghost with Tseebo. The Grand Inquisitor led TIE fighters in a chase from his personal TIE advanced and managed to place a tracking beacon on them.
Tseebo had known Ezra's parents and Ezra blamed him for not doing anything about it when the Galactic Empire took them away. When Chopper discovered the tracking beacon on the hull of the Phantom, Kanan and Ezra departed, leaving in the smaller ship while the Ghost was still in hyperspace which was a dangerous thing to do. They arrived at Fort Anaxes where Hera Syndulla and Sabine Wren had been before and faced the deadly Fyrnocks. Bridger managed to let go of his fear and forgive Tseebo as well and was able to connect through the force to the creatures. When the Inquisitor arrived, he engaged Jarrus while Ezra sent the Fyrnocks on the Stormtroopers. When he gave into his anger, Ezra sent the Giant Fyrnock on the Grand Inquisitor who at the time had stolen Kanan's lightsaber and dropped it while defending himself from the giant beast. Ezra passed out from the power and Kanan picked up his lightsaber, carrying his apprentice back to the Phantom.
Hera and her mysterious leader Fulcrum had spoken with Tseebo and gained the information on what actually happened to Ezra's parents and Hera told him that she would tell him when he was ready.
First lightsaber Edit
After missing training, Ezra was put to a test to see if he was meant to become a Jedi. Kanan and Bridger left in the Phantom and Bridger led them using the force to the Lothal Jedi Temple which Kanan didn't know had existed. Kanan waited outside while Ezra went in alone and saw many visions. Seeing the Inquisitor kill Kanan and then he heard the rest of his crew talking about him on the Ghost speaking very lowly about him. He then heard the Inquisitor board and kill them all. Ezra then found himself facing the Grand Inquisitor by himself however he managed to pass the test and overcome his fears. Ezra then heard the voice of Jedi Master Yoda who asked him many questions. Ezra told Yoda that he wanted to become a Jedi to have his revenge against the Empire but when Yoda corrected him he also explained that he wished to protect others. Satisfied with his answers, Yoda allowed Ezra to take a Kyber crystal for a lightsaber before he left. The lightsaber he built was a blaster/saber combo and when it wasn't activated it could fire like a blaster.
When Jarrus and Orrelios lost Chopper to Lando Calrissian in a game of Sabacc, the crew helped Lando Calrissian smuggle to Lothal. They arrived at Azmorigan's ship and Lando traded Hera Syndulla for a puffer pig. She escaped in an escape pod and returned to the Ghost although she was not impressed with a lack of briefing beforehand. The Puffer pig inflated to a huge size when Zeb and Ezra scared it, blocking Hera from the main cockpit. When they accidentally deactivated the ships cloaking device, TIE fighters pursued. Kanan managed to lose them and they landed back on Lothal at Calrissians farm. Azmorigan and his thugs were waiting for them and attacked but they managed to fend them off.
Ezra experienced a vision including Gall Trayvis the so called Rebel senator who appeared to know something about his parents. Ezra wished to find Trayvis so he went back to the academy where he met with Zare Leonis who was been transferred to the officers academy of Arkanis. Bridger told Leonis that Dev Morgan wasn't his real name but Stormtroopers interrupted them before he could tell him his real name.
The Rebels entered the Old Republic Senate Building where Trayvis and his droid guards were waiting. Agent Kallus and Minister Maketh Tua arrived and cornered them. They escaped with Trayvis through the sewers and Kanan, Sabine and Zeb went one way while Syndulla, the senator and Ezra went another. When the latter group reached a dead end, Hera handed Senator Trayvis a blaster and told him to watch their back. He took the advantage and pointed the blaster at her, revealing himself to be affiliated with the Empire, his job to trap any Rebel Sympathisers. She walked towards him casually and he realised that the blaster wasn't loaded. She knocked him out just before Kanan, Sabine and Zeb arrived again. Kallus and his Stormtroopers arrived just as the Rebels escaped and Trayvis got up. Later on the Rebels watched as Trayvis publicly declared his loyalty to the Empire. Ezra was extremely disappointed in himself for misinterpreting his vision.
Kanan's capture Edit
The Rebels decided to send their own transmission to everyone and they went to the Lothal communications tower to insert a data spike. A Viper probe droid spotted them and alerted the imperials of their presence. Agent Kallus and the Grand Inquisitor arrived and Kanan held them off below for long enough, ordering the others to escape. The Grand Inquisitor duelled Kanan and overpowered him, taking him captive. Ezra spoke, using the data spike to send a transmission to everyone on Lothal. Just as he was finishing the message, the Imperials destroyed the tower.
The Rebels hijacked an AT-DP walker and due to the communications tower being destroyed they couldn't find Jarrus's location. Disobeying Syndulla's orders, Ezra went with Sabine and Zeb to Cikatro Vizago to see if he knew anything. Vizago told Ezra that the Empire was using Courier Droids since the tower was down. Since Ezra recieved the information for nothing, Vizago told him that he was owed a favour. Ezra walked out of the Broken Horn to see an angry Hera. They convinced Hera to try and rescue Kanan by using Chopper in disguise as a Courier Droid to discover his location. Chopper was sent up to a light cruiser and he discovered Kanan was travelling to Mustafar of Grand Moff Tarkin's star destroyer the Sovereign. They stole a Transport Ship and the stolen TIE fighter that Sabine had painted to enter the Star Destroyer. Chopper stayed on the Transport Ship while the others boarded.
Ezra headed to Kanan's cell and freed him but as they were passing over the reactor core, the Inquisitor was waiting for them. Kanan borrowed Ezra's lightsaber and attacked him. Finding himself on the opposite side of their enemy, Ezra used the force to call his master's lightsaber to himself from the Inquisitor's belt. After a brief three-way duel, Ezra was knocked off the side of the walkway. Jarrus, thinking that Bridger was dead, took his own lightsaber and fought the Inquisitor without any fear. Cornered, the Inquisitor started spinning his lightsaber around but Kanan cut his lightsaber in 2 from the hilt. The Inquisitor fell back, holding on the edge of the walkway while Kanan stood above and the 2 active halves of the lightsaber fell into the reactor core, starting to destroy the ship. The Inquisitor told Kanan that there were some things far worse than death before letting go and falling to his death. Ezra who had only fallen onto a lower platform rejoined with Kanan and they all left in two seperate TIE fighters - the stolen one and the Inquisitor's TIE advanced. Chopper had left and seemingly abandoned them and they battled other TIE's in space until Chopper arrived again in the Ghost with a group of blockade runners from the Phoenix rebel cell. Once aboard the Ghost they met Fulcrum who was revealed to be Ahsoka Tano, a former Jedi apprentice. She told Ezra that his message had given people hope and that a complete new chapter was about to begin in his life.
The rebels began to get involved with Phoenix Squadron and became one of the main forces in the cell serving under Commander Jun Sato who had the help of former Jedi Ahsoka Tano. The rebels returned to Lothal to get Minister Maketh Tua when she decided to defect to the rebels but Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin forsaw this and used it as part of their plan. Kallus accompanied Tua to her shuttle and then when the rebels tried to escape with her the shuttle exploded with Tua aboard. This of course had been staged by the Galactic Empire but they made it look like the rebels were responsible for Tua's death. The rebels tried to escape but the shuttle they arrived on was shot out of the sky by an AT-DP and they crash-landed. Stuck on Lothal, the rebels needed a ship to escape so Kanan stole a Stormtrooper commander's armor and Ezra disguised as an Imperial cadet and they infiltrated the Imperial headquarters. They pushed boxes with the other rebels inside into the complex where they found an Imperial Shuttle waiting for them. Darth Vader was waiting for them and while the other rebels got some shield generators onto the ship, Kanan and Ezra faced off the Sith Lord. He was nothing like the Grand Inquisitior and used the force to push Ezra against a wall and push his own lightsaber against his throat. Kanan managed to engage Vader and save his apprentice. They worked together to topple some walkers on top of him. They escaped on the ship and as they were leaving they saw Vader use the force to lift the walkers off himself. They realised just how strong this Sith Lord they were up against was.
Vader pursued the rebels back to Phoenix Squadron in his TIE advanced and destroyed many ships. The Ghost and many A-wings engaged the fighter. Two Star Destroyers arrived but the rebels managed to escape and the Star Destroyers caught Vader's ship in their tractor beam instead as the Ghost followed the other rebel ships into hyperspace.
Ezra and the crew of the Ghost traveled to find one of Ahsoka Tano's old friends on the planet of Seelos. They found Captain Rex the Clone Trooper living in an AT-TE walker on the planet with two other Clones - Wolffe and Gregor. After a fight with the Empire on the planet, Rex decides to join the growing rebellion while Wolffe and Gregor stay behind.
Kanan continued training Ezra and during one session he was instructed to lift Chopper but Sabine had played a trick on him and got Chopper to lock his feet to the metal floor. Ezra was super frustrated but Rex exposed the trick and Ezra got mad. Rex and Kanan argued over how best to train Ezra, he snuck off with Sabine, Zeb and Chopper on a salvage mission. It turned out lucky that he was there because they ran into two new Inquisitors - the Seventh Sister and the Fifth Brother. Ezra and Sabine got captured but they were rescued by Garazeb Orrelios who pretended to be "Commander Meiloorun" over comms and then took the Phantom and hid on the roof of the hangar so when the Inquisitors walked in with their prisoners, he and Chopper took them by surprise. Ezra took his lightsaber and they managed to escape and enter the Phantom.
Ezra was alone when he recieved a distress call from a pirate ship. Upon reaching the ship with Chopper he realised it was the Broken Horn which belonged to Cikatro Vizago. He entered the ship but found another individual - Hondo Ohnaka. Ohnaka claimed to have bought the ship from Vizago. Ezra claimed to be Lando Calrissian and Hondo fell for the ruse.
