Also, sorry if this has been posted, but I couldn’t find it. General Discussion. I know the act that culminates in making a child (trying to keep it PG for the kids on here) can be very short lived. And if she did, why not tell Kanon (even though he could’ve sensed the baby in her had he been paying attention)? Hera serves as a mother-figure to the crew of the Ghost, especially to Ezra. Perhaps they were in a romantic relationship that did not include "making Jacens" until season 4? Don't get me wrong: I know the act that culminates in making a child (trying to keep it PG for the kids on here) can be very short lived. When he continued to struggle, she helped him realize that Sabine was holding back due to pain she had previously experienced with her family, something that Hera could sense and sympathize with after her own troubled past with her father. Was it just a way for it to have a “happy ending”? Did he know he was sacrificing himself for Hera to be a single parent? Ezra added that she had done the same. Before leaving for Malachor, Kanan promised a distressed Hera that they would "see each other again" before lovingly embracing her. Implied to be during the events of "Kindred", as I recall, after they speak while Kanan's meditating out on the plain. Looks like you're using new Reddit on an old browser. But time difference may not match up. Lots of time in hyperspace with nothing else to do. I’m not a big book person, but damn I loved that book! Hera's mother was presumably the wife of Cham, and it is implied they were very close, that when she died at the hands of the Empire, it drove Cham to his near-zealot ways to fight back against the Empire, that it drove a wedge between himself and his daughter. It’s like seeing two friends of yours get together after a long time, and you’re like, ‘Oh, thank God! From there we can infer that Kanan has seen or sensed something of their future child—either a vision or perhaps a shift in the Force itself with his conception (remember this is the next morning)—and this sets off a sudden surge of anxiety both for Hera’s safety as well as an unreasonable, but not unfounded, fear that she might put the Rebellion first before their child, just as she has to some degree with their … Later, when Commander Sato promoted Ezra to Lieutenant Commander, Hera told Ezra that Kanan would be proud. Hera repaired the droid as best she could and from then on they formed a lifelong bond that was close yet rigid. '” he continued.] Cookies help us deliver our Services. Her father Cham was a prominent Twi'lek revolutionary who had fought against the Confederacy of Independent Systems in the Clone Wars and later against the Galactic Empire. Hera was the one to mention Lando and get the idea to make a deal with him in Siege of Lothal. The relationships of Hera Syndulla 1 Family 1.1 Cham Syndulla 1.2 Hera's mother 1.3 Hera's brother 1.4 Jacen Syndulla 2 Allies 2.1 Kanan Jarrus 2.2 Chopper 2.3 Sabine Wren 2.4 Ezra Bridger 2.5 Ahsoka Tano 2.6 Lando Calrissian Main article: Cham Syndulla Hera is the daughter of the Twi'lek Rebel leader Cham Syndulla, whom she reluctantly left when she departed Ryloth to become a pilot. During an incident relating to the mining operations on Cynda, Kanan revealed himself to be a Jedi and instructed Hera to not tell. But then along came season 4 and Kanan's comments around their love/romantic relationship, in conjunction with how dramatic these kiss scenes were, really made me think that they were not... And maybe it's just my perhaps flawed perception of relationships that being in one and "making Jacens" goes hand in hand. Hera was the only member of the Ghost Crew who communicated with Ahsoka, known to the Twi'lek as "Fulcrum" until the events following Fire Across the Galaxy. For this, Cham felt there was nothing more important than the liberation of Ryloth, and driving the wedge further between himself and his daughter. Ares. Jacen Syndulla was born to General Hera Syndulla of the Rebel Alliance on the planet Lothal in 0 BBY. (No hate from me if they were - just didn’t seem like their characters.). Hera finally convinced Sabine that they were a part of something bigger and that they do trust her only that the rebellion required utmost care and discretion. Maybe I read into their attempted kisses in season 4 too much? I know that Rebels spanned a few years, so not ever waking moment of their lives made it into the show, nor did every single one of their interactions. So now I'm back to my original question, which who better to ask than those on Star Wars reddit, when did Kanan and Hera have time to make a child before Kanan died? She was upset with Ezra when she found out that he'd turned a recon mission into a recovery mission. His name is Jacen Syndulla, not Jarrus or Dume, so there's no reason why he has to be Kanan's son. Okay, so I’ve been thinking about this for the past week since my husband and I finished Rebels, but how the hell did Hera have Kanon’s child? [I suspect during this scene. She and her mother hid underground while the Separatist Droid Army occupied her homeworld. While it's implied that it's Kanan's kid, they never tell us that. But there definitely was always something there between them. How the hell did Hera have Kanon’s child?! When I read the title I was thinking you were going in a different direction because I was wondering how they had a kid when they are not the same species. Even after finally seeing her trusted informant's face and role, Hera continues to hold Ahsoka in great esteem. I have never posted on reddit before and I don't know the audience here, specificallyon the Star Wars portion. When Ezra led the others in a bid to find Kanan, she was not happy with him, but when their efforts paid off she praised Ezra for stepping up and that Kanan had taught him well. She nicknamed him Chopper and is probably the one member of the Ghost crew he fully listens to, and she in turn can not only understand him but keep him under her thumb. It seems, based on this, that they were in fact NOT super involved off screen! Did Kanon know she was pregnant? She later attempted to bring him out of his self-imposed isolation by talking to him about Ezra, and was pleasantly surprised when he finally emerged to join her on a rescue mission. Kanan met Hera at the planet Gorse and its moon Cynda approximately six years prior to the events in Star Wars Rebels. All Sabine says about it is that he was born by the time the Battle of Endor happened and "we all know what his father was like". This strained relationship between father and daughter stemmed from the death of Hera's mother at the hands of the Empire. Lando flirted with Hera time to time but when Lando presented Hera to Azmorigan as his new slave, she was not happy at Lando and after she escape, Hera, angry at Lando for making her go through with this mission, punched him in the groin. But there is something…you might know the way these people feel inside as the audience, or you might hope that they feel this way that you do about them. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. No doubt. Noted by Thrawn, according to Hera's Kalikori, she once had a brother who died at a young age.

They care for each other but Hera is willing to be firm and have Ezra pull his own weight, and is often able to convince him to be a better person. Ezra argued with her, before storming out of the room. (https://youtu.be/6CUTVLMbxXw). Hera is respectful of Ahsoka, and trusts her completely and respected the necessity of Ahsoka keeping her identity secret, that Hera wouldn't allow Sabine to know more, partly to protect the Rebel Network, and Hera (albeit reluctantly) heeded Ahsoka's warning of giving up on Kanan and going into hiding (at least at first). I thought that was why them finally getting to kiss on screen was so significant... because they weren't kissing off screen. I’m seriously at a loss! Did he think they were only casually making Jacens (yet again, just trying to keep this PG for the kids), but he wanted more? I always assumed they were dating throughout the entire series, it just wasn't until that moment in S4 that they truly professed their love. Star Wars is an American epic space opera franchise, created by George Lucas and centered around a film series that began with the eponymous 1977 movie. She encouraged him to let Sabine use the Darksaber in training so that she could feel driven to truly commit, and so that she would be able to face the pain that had filled her when Kanan and Hera first found her. I just don't want problems. Not much more is known about Kanan and Hera's past together but they are known to be close, sometimes bickering like a married couple. And if they were kissing (among other things) off screen, why were these kiss scenes so dramatic and why was Kanan seemingly so confused about her true feelings for him during season 4? Hera disagreed, saying that the Empire knows who he is and that he and Kanan would shadow them until she and the others needed to escape.
