Geek Of The Week: Hera Syndulla

If you’re a fan of Star Wars Rebels, you probably know this week’s geek very well. Hera Syndulla was born on the planet Ryloth. Her home world was desecrated duding the Clone Wars while she was just a girl. Her father, Cham Syndulla, was the leader of the Twi’lek Resistance. Hera eventually left Ryloth and joined the Rebellion agains the Galactic Empire.

She became the leader of Phoenix Squadron, a group of rebels that included C310P (former GOTW), Sabine Wren (former GOTW), Ezra Bridger (former GOTW), and others. She is an expert pilot and her ship, The Ghost, can mask its signature to look like any other ship. This allows it to pass through blockades and unfriendly space without much trouble.

Throughout the TV shows and comic books in the Star Wars universe, we see her cross paths with Ahsoka Tano (former GOTW), Chelli Lona Aphra (former GOTW), Lando Calrissian, Mon Mothma, Admiral Thrawn, and many other important characters. Many Star Wars fans consider her one of the most important figures in the Rebel Alliance.
