OverviewEdit

Set between Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, The Freemaker Adventures centers on a family of three young siblings—young boy Rowan, his sister Kordi, and their brother Zander—known as the Freemakers, who salvage parts from destroyed or damaged ships which they use to build new ones, which they sell in order to make their living. They are accompanied by their salvaged battle droid R0-GR. However, the family become enmeshed in the battle between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance when Rowan discovers part of an ancient artifact known as the Kyber Saber. He then becomes aware of his own connection to the Force and meets a mysterious Force-wielder named Naare before embarking on a journey with his siblings that leads them to meet with new and old Lego faces from the Star Wars universe.

Cast and charactersEdit

MainEdit

  • Nicolas Cantu as Rowan Freemaker, the young 12 year old Force-sensitive member of the family who often has trouble with paying attention to his older siblings and other authority figures.
  • Vanessa Lengies as Kordi Freemaker, the tomboyish female middle sibling of the family who is fiercely protective of her younger brother Rowan and disapproves of his involvement in the quest for the Kyber Saber.
  • Eugene Byrd as Zander Freemaker, the eldest son of the family and a mechanic who specializes in creating new ships and devices from leftover components. He hates his creations being called "Uglies", preferring the term "Z-Wings", and has a considerable crush on Naare, despite the fact that she's a Sith.
  • Matthew Wood as R0-GR (pronounced Roger), the family's reprogrammed battle droid servant and friend.

RecurringEdit

The EmpireEdit

  • Grey Griffin as Naare, a Sith who is masquerading as a Jedi survivor of Order 66 to fool and use the Freemakers in her mission to find the Kyber Saber crystals. She has a set of facial markings that change shape and color along with her eyes when she becomes angry or taps into the dark side.
  • Matt Sloan as Darth Vader, a Dark Lord of the Sith
  • Trevor Devall as Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader's master and the ruler of the Empire.
  • Richard Kind as Durpin, a cowardly Imperial officer who is introduced as a lieutenant commander but soon promoted to general by the Emperor. Durpin is fully aware of the perils of high rank in the Empire and sought to avoid it at all cost, only to be given command over a larger force in order to deal with the Freemakers. He is subsequently placed in charge of security at the Emperor Palpatine Museum on Naboo before being demoted to ensign and assigned to a base on Hoth to his relief–until the Freemakers show up there too.
  • Jeff Bennett as Plumestriker, Durpin's second-in-command who lacks his superior's healthy fear of the perils of being in a command position in the Empire and is eager for Durpin to climb the Imperial ladder. He starts out as a lieutenant but is then promoted to commander after Durpin is made a general; he is subsequently demoted to Sub-ensign and assigned to Hoth with Durpin.
  • Jane Leeves as Lieutenant Estoc, a female Imperial officer assigned to the Wheel who participates in the hunt for Luke and Leia when they arrive at the station looking for repairs.

Crime LordsEdit

  • Dana Snyder as Graballa the Hutt, Jabba's envious cousin who is constantly kept from pursuing his own ambitions by Jabba's greater influence and who seeks the Kyber Crystals as a means of gaining power. He is 462 years old, and has spent 200 of them running a mining operation in an asteroid field, nursing his dreams of running a beach resort. He eventually joins forces with Naare so that the pair can recover the crystals together until she betrays Graballa.
  • Kevin Michael Richardson as Jabba the Hutt, Graballa's cousin who is often annoyed by Graballa's antics. Unlike Graballa, who speaks in English/Basic, Jabba speaks in Huttese.

Bounty HuntersEdit

Rebel AllianceEdit

  • Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, the former Administrator of Cloud City turned leader in the Rebellion. He works with Chewbacca in the absence of Han Solo.
  • Eric Bauza as Luke Skywalker, a Rebellion leader and Jedi-in-training. As The Freemaker Adventures takes place after The Empire Strikes Back, Luke appears in his attire from Return of the Jedi and wields his green lightsaber.
  • Julie Dolan as Princess Leia Organa, one of the few survivors of the destroyed planet Alderaan and a leader in the Rebellion. She and her brother Luke meet the Freemakers after a failed mission leaves their ship damaged, and work together with them to evade Imperial capture.
  • Trevor Devall as Admiral Ackbar, a Mon Calamari officer in the Rebel Alliance.
  • Yvette Nicole Brown as Lt. Valeria, a fighter pilot for the Rebel Alliance. (season 2)
  • Vanessa Marshall as Hera Syndulla, a skilled Twi'Lek pilot and general in the Rebellion introduced in Star Wars: Rebels. Her droid Chopper also appears. (season 2)
  • Corey Burton as Quarrie, an elderly Mon Calamari and an experienced ship builder and mechanic, responsible for the creation of the B-Wing in Star Wars: Rebels. (season 2)

Force-usersEdit

  • Brian Dobson as Jek-14, also known as the Maker of Zoh, a former Sith experiment who uses the Force to build. Jek first appeared in Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles and its sequel series Lego Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles, and in The Freemaker Adventures is seen in his elderly appearance from the latter.
  • Baird Kantoo is a Jedi Knight who created the Kyber Saber. After discovering how destructive the Kyber Saber is, he smashed it and gave each piece to trusted Jedi Knights to hide them in different areas around the galaxy to keep it out of evil's hand.

DroidsEdit

  • French Stewart as N3-R0, a droid who hates humans due to their mistreatment of droids.
  • Fred Tatasciore as BL-OX, a large droid loyal to Jek but influenced by N3-R0.
  • James Urbaniak as M-OC, a hunter droid created by the Emperor specifically to track and capture Rowan Freemaker. He is programmed to adapt and learn, gaining his own Lightsabers. (season 2)

CiviliansEdit

  • Thomas Lennon as Wick Cooper, a wealthy resident of the Wheel space station who occasionally comes to the Freemakers to have them work on his vehicles. Very full of himself and proud of his station, he is quite willing to bully the Freemakers (particularly Zander) and others whom he regards as beneath him. He is also an insensitive individual, once making a joke at the expense of the destroyed Alderaan. Unfortunately for him, he did so in the presence of Princess Leia; he is also the Emperor's self-proclaimed biggest fan.
  • Jeff Bennett as Ignacio Wortan, a Twi'lek businessman.
  • Greg Baldwin as Furlac, the Freemakers' merciless Aqualish landlord aboard the Wheel space station. He is constantly threatening to throw the Freemakers out if they don't pay rent on their shop in time, but notably is susceptible to Force persuasion as employed by Naare. In the second season, he becomes an ally to Graballa.
  • Jim Cummings as Hondo Ohnaka, a male Weequay pirate who led the Ohnaka Gang.
  • Grey Griffin as Maz Kanata, a pirate and smuggler.

During a briefing on the creation of the second Death Star seen in Return of the Jedi, Darth Vader explains to an unimpressed Darth Sidious that they have come across information in the Jedi Archives regarding the mysterious Kyber Saber. Elsewhere, a battle between Imperial and Rebellion forces is capitalized on by the Freemaker family of ship salvagers, who collect parts from the destroyed vessels until youngest boy Rowan inadvertently destroys an Imperial transport. Returning to their home of the Wheel space station, the three find themselves in urgent need of a completed ship to sell in order to pay off their landlord Furlac, and head to a planet on which a Clone Wars battle took place in order to find a needed part to repair one of Zander's "Z-Wings." Despite being told to stay on the Star Scavenger with Roger the salvaged battle droid, Rowan leaves the ship to warn his siblings Zander and Kordi of stormtrooper activity in the area only to experience a strange call that leads him to the handle of the Kyber Saber. He is then greeted by Naare, who explains that the Kyber Saber is the first lightsaber and was broken and scattered in order to keep its vast powers out of evil hands. The pair then work together to rescue Kordi and Zander from the Imperials, and Naare accompanies the Freemakers back to the Wheel where she uses the Force to get Furlac off their back for the time being before he can throw them out for not paying their rent while also renting a shop on the station for her own use. Unbeknownst to the Freemakers, however, their new "ally" is a Sith in the employ of the Emperor, who seeks to help Rowan master his newfound connection to the Force only so that she can recover the fragments of the Kyber Saber for her master.
2 2 "The Mines of Graballa" Martin Skov James W. Bates June 21, 2016 (2016-06-21) 102 0.26[6]
Naare's efforts to train Rowan are frowned upon by Kordi, who doesn't want her younger brother getting involved in such dangerous activities. Naare then tries to use the Mind Trick ability on Kordi, but it has no effect on her. Unfortunately, Rowan is determined to help out and tricks Roger into helping him take a ship out in search of another Kyber Saber crystal, which they find in an asteroid belt. Unfortunately, the belt is run by Graballa the Hutt, whose men bring the pair to him after they recover the crystal. Alerted to the importance of the artifact, Graballa demands Rowan tell him how to find the rest of its pieces and threatens to feed him to his pet if he refuses. Zander, Kordi, and Naare arrive to rescue the pair, and after a harrowing encounter manage to do so. The Kyber Saber crystal is lost in the belt but then recovered, while Graballa sets his minions on the hunt for the Freemakers in order to obtain the crystals for himself.
3 3 "Zander's Joyride" Per Düring Risager Russ Carney

June 22, 2016 (2016-06-22) 103 0.36[7]
A wealthy client brings his classic N-1 Naboo Starfighter to the Freemakers, and the starstruck Zander defies Kordi's wishes by stealing the ship and taking it on a joy ride that lands him in Imperial custody. With the somewhat reluctant aid of Naare, Zander's siblings board the ship in order to rescue their brother and the fighter while Roger distracts their client. Believing the Freemakers to be Rebels, Darth Vader attempts to interrogate Zander and later hold him and his siblings captive until he sees the N-1 and, between his own love of ships and the nostalgia of his piloting one in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, takes off on a ride in the craft himself. The Freemakers are able to trick the Imperials and recover the fighter, but it is left badly damaged and its owner infuriated until he spots Zander's pride and joy, the Blazemaster, sitting in the shop. Taking the ship as recompense for damages, he flies out only to be left adrift when the incomplete ship explodes.
4 4 "The Lost Treasure of Cloud City" Michael Hegner John Behnke June 23, 2016 (2016-06-23) 104 0.44[8]
During the evacuation of Cloud City as seen in The Empire Strikes Back, Lobot is captured while attempting to recover "precious cargo" from Lando's quarters. Some time later, Rowan is struggling with moving objects using the Force, and Zander tries to cheer him up by taking him to the Wheel's lower ring. While there Rowan meets Lando who is offering a reward to anyone who can recover the cargo from Cloud City, and Kordi quickly agrees to the mission. However, Dengar and his bumbling partners Baash and Raam have also learned of the mission, while Naare comes to suspect that the Freemakers may have learned of her allegiance to the Empire and are gathering the Kyber Saber Crystals without her. The three parties soon arrive on Cloud City, and Rowan ends up frozen in carbonite while Kordi is retrieving the package. A chase soon ensues as Dengar and co. seize Lando's case-which they and Naare believe contains a Kyber Saber Crystal-and the frozen Rowan, leading Zander to a desperate plan: damaging Cloud City's repulsorlift systems so that the city begins to plummet into the depths of Bespin. They manage to free Rowan, and after being freed from the carbonite he is able-due to not being able to rely on his eyesight-to use the Force to repair the repulsorlift system and get the city back to its proper altitude. Lando soon rewards the Freemakers for retrieving the cargo-his much longed for wardrobe-while Dengar's crew are imprisoned on Cloud City but now know the identities of the Freemakers.
5 5 "Peril on Kashyyyk" Jens Møller David Shayne June 27, 2016 (2016-06-27) 105 N/A
Due to business being slow and their rent being due in a matter of days, the Freemakers accept a dangerous mission: obtaining a wood panel for a Twi'lek businessman's starship that can only be obtained from Kashyyyk, the Wookiee homeworld under Imperial blockade. Despite Rowan's insistence that he can speak Wookiee, Kordi wants a translation droid, but settles for installing a translation program in Roger after learning what a real protocol droid costs. Their attempt to sneak in earns the attention of Lieutenant Commander Durpin, who is eager to keep the matter quiet so as not to draw attention to himself and risk getting promoted. After meeting party of Wookiees, the Freemakers receive the wood but then learn that they must free the son of the Wookiee chief from a Trandoshan prison in exchange. Despite some hiccups they succeed, but Rowan then senses the presence of a Kyber Saber Crystal inside the prison and insists on going after it despite the Wookiees starting their attack. The Freemakers manage to recover the crystal but the wood panel is damaged in their escape, while Durpin's failure to stop them is blamed on his lack of resources, leading to his reassignment and promotion to the rank of general.
6 6 "Crossing Paths" Martin Skov Bill Motz
Bob Roth
July 11, 2016 (2016-07-11) 106 0.49[9]
The Freemakers receive a special visitor in the form of Luke Skywalker and his soon-to-be-revealed twin sister Leia Organa, who have escaped a quartet of TIE Fighters through the surface of a moon. After a brief reminder from the spirit of Obi-Wan Kenobi telling him to use the Force, Luke blasts a crater that destroys the remaining two fighters and his Y-Wing is overheated, taking him to the Wheel. Prior to Luke and Leia's arrival, Wick Cooper is successful in adverting Zander from his speeder bike and Naare is going on a secret mission that does not involve Rowan Freemaker, who is forbidden from his exposing his Force-sensitivity to anyone, including Mr. Cooper, as she fears that they will be exploited and/or he will be virtually exterminated by the Empire. Naare leaves just as Luke and Leia crash land in the hangar. Luke and Rowan introduce themselves after he is exposed by a female officer by the name of Estoc announcing their current whereabouts in a hologram. Leia coaxes an offer to Kordi to pay her five times the price of her Y-wing. Roger's antics of clumsily fiddling with the complex controls of the StarScavenger sends himself, Luke and Rowan into hyperspace. Estoc and her command of Stormtroopers follow them, but when they miss the incinerator, they throw Leia and their trash into it, convincing Estoc for the time being. ("That's not the first time I've escaped through a garbage chute." Leia comments after getting herself out.) Luke opens the doors and deactivates the hyperdrive, which sends the StarScavenger headed towards Felucia. His masterly landings and the revelation that he is a Jedi is enough to make Rowan ecstatic for questions. Roger, however, is disgruntled by this, even after he is consumed and spit out by a fly trap. Back on the wheel, Leia, Kordi and Zander are on the run from the stormtroopers and Zander uses a probe droid to fling canisters at the stormtroopers while the girls take the elevator to the upper ring with the help of Leia's House of Organa card. There, after devouring a tray load of hors d'oeuvres from a protocol droid, Kordi finds herself in the penthouse of Mr. Cooper and uses a plant pot to pass her off as a droid disguise. Meanwhile, Naare lands the Eclipse Fighter at the Senate Rotunda on Coruscant where she rendezvous with Palpatine and Darth Vader in his office and is questioned relentlessly about the Kyber Saber crystals in the form of a pop quiz. On Felucia, Luke uses the Force to repair a bulkhead on the StarScavenger and Rowan notices a unique type of flower blooming every time the Force comes within range of the buds. Roger regrets to inform the two force-sensitive humans that an acklay is in possession of the ship's hyperdrive generator. After a discriminating joke by Mr. Cooper that reminds her too much of the tragic day that saw her adoptive parents and fellow Alderaanians killed by the Death Star, Leia drop kicks the nobleman out of his penthouse allowing Kordi to reveal herself. But this only causes Mr. Cooper, after discovering the real cleaning droids arrive, to alert the Stormtroopers. On Felucia, later that night, Luke levitates the generator out of the pit while the acklay is sleeping it off, but it awakens and the loud roar sends Rowan into the pit with him. Only does hitting the acklay with a duo of rocks, thanks to Luke, sends the three running from the enraged leviathan. On the Wheel, Kordi and Leia hide in a diner and the princess saves Kordi from being arrested. Zander arrives in time to save the women via Mr. Cooper's speeder bike. Rowan, inspired by Luke's words of the Force acting as a natural order, uses flowers to lure the acklay away from the nest while Roger obtains the hyperdrive. He is soon swallowed for the third time by a fly trap and this only tests his patience. With a Y-wing decoy intentionally destroyed by two TIE fighters, Kordi and Zander convince Estoc otherwise that Leia forced them to co-operate and she submits, celebrating her victory with the Stormtroopers. Roger, Rowan and Luke return, but without a proper ship, they use one of Zander's Z-wings to leave. Sometime later, Naare returns as well, frustrated with her quiz and Rowan presents her with a flower that immediately wilts. Suspicions revolving around the Fallen Jedi's true nature begin to click for the boy.
7 7 "Race on Tatooine" Frederik Budolph David Shayne July 18, 2016 (2016-07-18) 107 0.52[10]
Dengar, Baash, and Raam escape from prison on Cloud City and report to Graballa, who had just made another failed attempt to convince Jabba to let him open a resort. Rowan is troubled by the revelations of last episode and fears that Naare is a villain, but is unable to tell his siblings due to their concern over their cash flow. Podracing champion Ben Quadinaros then approaches the family about serving as his pit crew in a race on Tattooine, but it turns out to be a setup by Graballa. Fortunately, the Freemakers are able to escape on a stolen Podracer after Jabba arrives to investigate Graballa's presence, but end up stuck in the desert after the podrace leads to the destruction of their vehicle. They manage to take refuge in an abandoned Jawa sandcrawler, and the elder siblings contact Naare despite Rowan's half-hearted attempts to convince them not to do so. Graballa's forces arrive and attack, and are about to capture the Freemakers when Naare arrives and overcomes them with relative ease. During the battle, however, Rowan hides in her Eclipse Fighter and discovers her red-bladed lightsaber and dark side connection when the Emperor calls to check on her progress. Unfortunately, the elder Freemakers are more convinced than ever of Naare's "heroic" nature, leaving Rowan at a loss as to how to deal with the deceiving sith.

Rowan reveals to the other Freemakers that Naare is a Sith, and the group manage to escape her after being pursued by her in the Eclipse Fighter, though the Star Scavenger is badly damaged. Naare ends up making a deal with Graballa to hunt down the Freemakers and the crystals together, while the Freemakers crash land on Takodana, home to Maz Kanata. They lightly damage the ship of pirate Hondo Ohnaka, who is convinced to spare the Freemakers harm in exchange for them retrieving three golden orbs from one of Takodana's moons. Rowan, to his surprise, senses a Kyber Saber Crystal in Maz's castle, but assumes that he is imagining things and accompanies his siblings and Roger to the moon. Unfortunately, they find that the orbs are in a pit surrounded by adult Varactyls, giant carnivorous lizards, and resort to lowering Roger into the pit from their smaller ship while the creatures are asleep. Unfortunately Roger wakes the creatures up after attempting to take more than Hondo's requested three orbs, and Rowan then discovers that the golden objects are Varactyl eggs. The group then return and confront Hondo over his dirty deal, and Maz then kicks Hondo out before gifting the Freemakers with a needed piece for their ship and another Kyber Saber Crystal. She then advises Rowan that, when things become desperate, he should seek out the Maker of Zoh.

Ron Corcillo
August 1, 2016 (2016-08-01) 109 0.44[12]
The Freemakers continue to search for the Kyber Saber Crystals while being pursued by Naare, and lose one on a water planet before traveling to Naboo, where they discover one hidden in the Emperor Palpatine Museum. Sneaking Roger into the museum, they find that Durpin and Plumestriker are in charge of security. Unfortunately, the contents of the museum prove distracting to the various members of the Freemaker family, and Rowan accidentally causes the Imperials to become aware of their presence. Fortunately, he is able to bluff his way into getting the Imperials to leave, only for Naare and Dengar to arrive in search of the crystal that Rowan has found. Roger and Dengar engage in a fire fight while Rowan battles Naare, only to find himself greatly out matched for his former master. Fortunately, he manages to bring down the museum and recovers Naare's blue lightsaber after she steals back her red lightsaber and gets the crystal from him, and the Freemakers escape. The Freemakers then learn that Naare has been using Roger to track them; Naare, learning of their discovery, is unconcerned, as the final crystal is known to be located on Hoth.
10 10 "The Maker of Zoh" Per Düring Risager James W. Bates August 8, 2016 (2016-08-08) 110 0.44[13]
Realizing that Naare will be waiting for them on Hoth and has six of the seven Kyber Saber Crystals, the Freemakers ponder their next move after removing Roger's transmitter, which has been communicating to Naare since they contacted her from Tattooine. Remembering Maz's counsel, Rowan suggests that they travel to Zoh in search of the Maker; despite Zoh turning out to be a supposedly uninhabited junk planet, the group decides to go there. Upon arrival they find several cobbled together droids who attempt to drive them away only for them to be saved by the Maker, who is revealed to be Jek-14; Rowan then persuades him to teach him what he knows of building with the Force. Jek's droid companions become fearful that the Freemakers will take Jek with them and scheme to turn Roger to their side and destroy the unwanted interlopers; however, Roger proves faithful to his "family" and reactivates his transmitter, which brings Naare and Graballa to Zoh in search of the Freemakers. Jek confronts Naare while the Freemakers escape and is buried in junk; however, after the Freemakers and their enemies depart for Hoth, his hand is seen emerging from the pile as his droid friends rebuild.
11 11 "Showdown on Hoth" Frederik Budolph John Behnke August 15, 2016 (2016-08-15) 111 0.34[14]
The Freemakers fly to Hoth with Naare and Graballa's forces hot on their tails, but are able to land safely on the planet while Graballa's ship crashes. Unfortunately, Roger causes the Star Scavenger to sink after thawing out a frozen lake, while the Freemakers encounter a baby Wampa before finding the last Kyber Saber Crystal. With their ship frozen the Freemakers are forced to enter Echo Base, where their old enemies Durpin and Plumestriker are now stationed, and Plumestriker inadvertently alerts Naare to the Freemakers' location while trying to capture them and secure promotions for himself and Durpin. However, the Wampa's mother arrives just in time to see the Imperials firing at her cub, and chases them off while the Freemakers are left to prepare for Naare's imminent arrival. Using their tools and Rowan's Force abilities, they repair some of the Rebel and Imperial technology left behind on the planet and fight against the arriving forces, unexpectedly freeing the Star Scavenger from the frozen lake in the process. Kordi shoots down Naare only for her to cause an avalanche with her Force powers and capture them, only to be knocked down when Durpin and Plumestriker come running by with the Wampa still in hot pursuit. Rowan briefly ponders surrendering to Naare in exchange for his family's safety, but instead tricks her with an ice crystal that melts when Naare attempts to form the Kyber Saber, enabling the Freemakers to escape with the real one. However, Rowan then takes Roger and the family salvage pod and leaves in order to protect his older siblings from Naare's continued pursuit.

August 22, 2016 (2016-08-22) 112 0.46[15]
The Emperor continues to demand that Naare hand over the Kyber Saber Crystals as she and Graballa search for the Freemakers; meanwhile, Kordi and Zander search for Rowan to no avail. The youngest member of the Freemakers has secluded himself on an unknown planet with Roger, using the battle droid's recorded memories of Clone Wars Jedi to learn new lightsaber techniques. Giving up on finding Rowan and resigning themselves to him finding them, Kordi and Zander decided to return to the Wheel only to be overheard by one of Graballa's spies, who informs the villains; they then ambush the pair on the wheel. Naare subjects the pair to individually tailored tortures-ripping apart Zander's ships with the Force and destroying Kordi' credits-in order to lure in Rowan, who senses their pain and leaves the last crystal on the planet before flying to their rescue. Arriving on the Wheel, he engages Naare in a full-on duel while the freed Kordi and Zander battle Graballa and his bounty hunters; though he performs well, Naare overpowers him and learns that Roger knows the location of the last crystal. Removing the battle droid's head, she then double crosses Graballa before burying Rowan under a pile of ship parts and departing to recover the crystal; however, Rowan survives her assault and has an epiphany regarding what must be done to stop her.

It is Empire Day on Coruscant, and the Emperor sends Vader off to investigate Rebel activity before learning that Naare has almost claimed the last Kyber Saber Crystal; unfortunately for him, Naare has had enough of his belittling and, upon recreating the saber, claims it for herself and sets her sights on becoming Sith Empress. Meanwhile, Rowan uses his Force abilities to rebuild the Star Scavenger before proposing a desperate plan to his siblings; the trio then make their way to Coruscant and attempt to sneak into the Emperor's palace through the planet's sewer system. The Emperor desperately recalls Vader as Naare begins tearing her way through the Imperial fleet using the Kyber Saber, and he quickly determines to evacuate only to run into Rowan, who is disguised as him, and mistake him for a decoy. Rowan then waits in the Emperor's throne room for Naare, while Roger-his head discarded by Naare-informs Kordi and Zander of Naare's plans to claim the Empire; Naare soon discovers Rowan's ruse. The Emperor then attacks with a force of walkers and fighters only for Naare to dispatch them easily, who declares herself Empress and then drops a load of civilians off a ledge when they refuse to acknowledge her. Rowan is then able to use his ability to call to the Kyber Saber Crystals to tear the saber apart and out of Naare's grasp, and reforms the Saber in order to face Naare in a final showdown. After overcoming her, Rowan contemplates using its power to take revenge on her and is encouraged by the Emperor, but rejects the Sith Lord's offer and departs with his siblings and Roger's head. Pursued by TIE Fighters, they deploy Zander's masterpiece, the Blazemaker, as a decoy while the Star Scavenger is reconfigured into a new form to enable it to slip past the planetary defenses. The Freemakers escape while Naare is abducted and frozen in carbonite by a vengeful Graballa, and the Emperor has Rowan placed on his list of top enemies, after the leaders of the Rebellion. Rowan then tosses the Kyber Saber into a volcanic crater to ensure that it will never fall into the wrong hands again, and are then invited to join the Rebellion by Admiral Ackbar.
