Ezra Bridger was a human male Jedi Padawan who became a rebel fighter and revolutionary leader in the early rebellion against 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 Juarrus. Bridger's abilities grew quickly, and a message of hope he broadcast 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. He also encountered Darth Maul, who hoped to make Bridger his apprentice—particularly once Bridger used the dark side to open the holocron. This briefly strained his apprenticeship with Jarrus, who was blinded by Maul on Malachor, but the two repaired their relationship and continued to progress as Jedi.
With his powers growing stronger, Bridger took on more leadership roles in the rebellion, including helping Clone Captainand rebel mentor CT-7567 ("Rex") and a surviving battalion of Separatist Alliance battle droids make peace and bring a sense of closure to the unresolved Clone Wars. Bridger also came into conflict with Grand Admiral Thrawn, helped fellow crewmate Sabine Wren in her quest to reunite the Mandalorian people, and sought to find Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, whom Bridger believed was key to destroying the Sith.
In 1 BBY, Ezra managed to free Lothal from the Empire's control during the liberation of Lothal. Towards the end of the battle, he and Thrawn were sped off into oblivion by the purrgil. After the fall of the Empire, Sabine and Ahsoka Tano set off on a journey in order to discover what happened to Ezra and finally bring him home.
He and Kanan can be seen during the final battle fighting a sixer.
