(Note: Possible Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Spoilers)
So everyone knows who Starkiller is, yes? Main character of Star Wars: Force Unleashed, and Star Wars: Force Unleashed II.
Okay now that we got that out of the way let's start with the basics. So in Star Wars: Force Unleashed there is a character named Rahm Kota who is an old, blind Jedi master from before Order 66. Once Starkiller switched sides Rahm Kota basically assumes the role of Starkillers' master.
Now what does this have to do with Star Wars Rebels and Ezra Bridger? Well first off both take place on the same time frame. AND second in the Season 2 finale Kanan Jarrus, who resembles a younger looking Rahm Kota, is blinded by Darth Maul.
How this leads to Ezra is that Ezra is:
- 1: Kanans padawan as Starkiller was Rahms padawan
- 2: Just like Starkiller, Ezra is constantly on the brink of light and dark unsure which to choose
- 3: both Ezra and Starkiller are exceptionally powerful in the force
- 4: Both end up in some way helping the Rebels as they are forming. Now the only real difference is in age and which side of the force they started on.
Look, they even look alike.
