The Freemaker Adventures
Species: Human (and one B1 battle droid)
A family of hardworking scavengers and shipbuilders who run Freemaker Salvage and Repair, a starship repair/salvage shop on the space station known as the Wheel. During a routine scrap run, a chance encounter with a powerful artifact and a mysterious Jedi changes the Freemakers' destiny forever. The Freemaker Adventures focuses on the Freemakers' escapades during the Galactic Civil War, while All-Stars chronicles the adventures of their parents (before and after the events of Solo) and Zander's daughter Moxie (before and during the events of the Sequel Trilogy).
- Ace Pilot: Mostly Zander, but every single one of the Freemakers has been shown to possess the ability to competently fly starships — including twelve-year-old Rowan and battle droid Roger!
- Badass Family: Very, very much. Even Kordi and Lena, who prefer to talk rather than fight their way out of sticky situations, are still formidable combatants when push comes to shove.
- Badass Normal: At least until Rowan discovers and develops his connection to the Force. Even then, his siblings aren't Overshadowed by Awesome; Zander's mechanic and piloting abilities and Kordi's wit and leadership are often just as crucial to the family's success as Rowan's skill with the lightsaber and the Force.
- Been There, Shaped History: In Season Two, the Freemakers return to the Wheel to steal back a starship part from their old shop, which escalates into an encounter with none other than Darth Vader himself. Afterwards, the Freemakers' debrief with Rebel leadership inadvertently tips them off to the Empire's efforts to build a second Death Star, prompting Admiral Ackbar to order his staff to reach out to the Bothans.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Again, while Zander really takes the cake, his siblings (and Roger) are no slouches when it comes to starship maintenance and repair. All-Stars extends this to their parents as well; while Lena is never shown working on ships or speeders, it's implied that she had a major hand in reprogramming Roger to be the lovable Robot Buddy he is today.
- Downplayed with Moxie in All-Stars, as she doesn't display any particular mechanical ability.
- Generation Xerox: All-Stars reveals that the siblings' father Pace was a starship mechanic who manufactured and sold custom ships called Uglies, while their mother Lena was a street-smart, smooth-talking Con Artist before she met Pace. Suddenly, Zander and Kordi's skill sets make a lot more sense.
- Good Parents: All-Stars reveals that Lena and Pace were very doting parents to their children, which makes their unexplained absence from The Freemaker Adventures all the more jarring.
- Guile Hero: Pretty much their MO, due to their modest status as galactic nobodies. By Season Two, they treat outwitting Imperials as a walk in the park.
- Heroic Neutral: They want to stay out of the Galactic Civil War, forcibly ejecting some squabbling Rebel and Imperial fighter pilots in the first episode and later almost throwing out Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia as well, but The Call Knows Where You Live and they wind up joining the Rebel Alliance.
- One Degree of Separation:
- Graballa the Hutt crosses paths with all three generations of Freemakers, and he lives to regret it every time. Notably, he might not know of the relationship between the Freemakers and his former target Pace, since the two's final interaction occurs prior to Pace adopting the Freemaker name. He certainly doesn't show any recognition of the name when he runs into the kids.
- Corporal Estoc commanded the prison train that was bringing Lena to an Imperial jail, and in fact Lena was going to be the 10,000th prisoner whom Estoc escorted without incident (needless to say, Lena broke that streak). Like Graballa, Estoc never interacted with Lena after she took on the Freemaker name, and (as a lieutenant) Estoc doesn't appear to be familiar with the name when she runs into the Freemaker kids on the Wheel.
- Downplayed with Chewbacca, who performed a non-fatal Heroic Sacrifice to rescue Lena from Imperial imprisonment. He interacts with her children on two separate occasions, but doesn't do much other than hugging them (and he's The Unintelligible anyway).
- Enforced with Lando Calrissian, who briefly employed Pace and Lena, brought them to the Wheel and apparently gave them their shop, and even inadvertently suggested the Line-of-Sight Name "Freemaker." Lando later interacts with their children on the same occasions as Chewbacca, almost certainly knowing who they are but never revealing his relationship with their parents.
The youngest of the Freemaker siblings. Not only is he Force-sensitive, he happens to share a unique bond with the Kyber Saber crystals.
- Ambiguous Situation: As a Force user, his fate after Return of the Jedi is unknown. The series finale ends with him revealing his Force-sensitivity to Luke, and what happens next is not shown. All-Stars makes no mention of his fate either, although he's known to have participated in the Battle of Jakku.
- Bob Roth reveals that Rowan went back to Aliston Nor and spent the remainder of his days rebuilding it.
- Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Seems to be a defining character trait at the start. "That was a lot of words, and my mind wandered in the middle..." Character Development moves him away from this.
- M-OC frequently cites this as one of Rowan's major weaknesses during his "The Reason You Suck" Speeches in Season 2, although Rowan doesn't have more trouble concentrating than other kids his age by then.
- Badass Adorable: Looks adorable while piloting an old AT-TE against some Stormtroopers. Later on, he gets a lightsaber and develops his Force abilities.
- Taken Up to Eleven in All-Stars, where Rowan singlehandedly levitates a free-falling Imperial Star Destroyer — while yelling at Roger to stop blabbering and get out of its way!
- Book Dumb: Rowan has trouble with math that would be fairly basic for his grade level (he doesn't understand ratios or odds, for one thing) and frequently asks others about words he doesn't know (like "dawdle"). It's justified due to a lack of formal education. He's still an accomplished salvager, an aspiring shipbuilder, and a Jedi-in-training.
- Broken Pedestal: Upon discovering that Naare is a Sith.
- Character Development: Suffers from Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny! at the start of the series, but fast-forward about 9 episodes to the Palpatine Museum on Naboo, where Rowan is ironically the only member of the crew not to suffer this as everybody else breaks off to see the various exhibits (though he was temporarily distracted by a floor buffer, he resists seconds later, and his attention hasn't wandered since).
- Cheerful Child: Under normal circumstances. Due to the events of the episodes, later ones show that he isn't as cheerful as he was starting out.
- Chekhov's Skill: While the Season One premiere quickly establishes that the Kyber Saber crystals call to Rowan, it isn't until near the end of the season that he realizes that he can call to them as well; unfortunately, Naare already holds all but one of them at that point. However, see My Kung Fu Is Stronger Than Yours below.
- Child Soldier: Played with. While the Freemakers eventually join the Rebel Alliance, they're usually assigned to ship maintainence duty rather than actual combat. That said, Rowan can hold his own in a fight, and indeed is quite the Pint-Sized Powerhouse as described below.
- All-Stars reveals that Rowan fought alongside his siblings during the Battle of Jakku.
- Cool Sword: His lightsaber, naturally. It was originally wielded by Naare, and Rowan confiscated it from her during their scuffle in the Palpatine museum on Naboo.
- Before this, Rowan discovered and swiped Naare's red lightsaber on Tatooine, and he used it against her during the aforementioned Palpatine Museum brawl until circumstances caused the two to switch weapons.
- Taken Up to Eleven with the Kyber Saber, which Rowan obtains and wields during the climax of the Season One finale. And the Season Two finale.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Though he has trouble focusing, when he does focus, he can make progress by leaps and bounds. His training with Jek on building things with the Force and him studying Roger's recorded Jedi fights both pave the way for massive amounts of improvement within very short spans of time.
- Exact Words: Possibly an unintentional example on Rowan's part, although definitely intentional on the part of the writers. Throughout Season Two, Rowan informs both Admiral Ackbar and Emperor Palpatine that he "threw the Kyber Saber into a pool of lava." He never actually states that he destroyed the Saber — because, as revealed in the Season Two finale, the Saber is actually still intact. Rowan's tone of voice when announcing this to his siblings suggests that he wasn't aware of the Saber's survival beforehand either. The situation can be Hand Waved by stating that the Force was subconsciously preventing Rowan from stating an untruth, even if he was unaware of it at the time.
- Forgot About His Powers: He sometimes forgets to use his Force abilities or his lightsaber when caught in a sticky situation. For example, when he was caught by M-OC, his restraints left his hands free to move, but he didn't think to summon his lightsaber to cut his way out until it was shaken out of its holster.
- Insistent Terminology: In Season Two. He's not twelve, but twelve-and-a-half!
- Keet: Very much so, and quite the charm point of his, especially early on.
- Kid Hero: He's only twelve.
- Twelve-and-a-half in Season Two.
- Just a Kid: After formally joining the Rebellion, he's frustrated by the fact that he doesn't get to do much in the heat of a space battle due to being too young and inexperienced to pilot a starfighter while everyone else grabs parts for last-minute repairs and maintenance.
- MacGuffin Super Person: His ability to sense the Kyber Saber crystals makes him this in Season One. While wielding the Kyber Saber, he temporarily becomes the most powerful Force wielder in the galaxy.Rowan: Now I'm the ultimate power in the universe! And I'm only twelve!
- My Kung Fu Is Stronger Than Yours:
- Naare easily bests Rowan in a straight Force-pull battle, but Rowan's connection to the Kyber Saber crystals trumps Naare's strongest Force pulls.
- Rowan's Force-pull of the giant kyber crystal is also stronger than M-OC's ability to hold onto it. M-OC only wins by utilizing a distraction.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: The youngest and shortest of the Freemakers, but the only one who's Force-sensitive. By the end of Season One, even before Rowan acquires the Kyber Saber, it's abundantly clear that he's the most powerful of the Freemakers, and he's the one who tends to take on their enemies head-on while his siblings and Roger support him.
- Prophet Eyes: Sports these when in the vicinity of a Kyber Saber crystal. Unfortunately, it also causes him to nearly kill himself trying to obtain said crystal on numerous occasions, although he eventually learns to overcome this tendency.
- Shonen Hair: Definitely, being spiked up to the point that it wouldn't be out of place in Kingdom Hearts.
- Tagalong Kid: Occasionally, when the Freemakers go on trips that aren't related to the Kyber Saber crystals. Sometimes a Kyber Saber crystal happens to get involved anyway.
- Took a Level in Badass: Pretty much sums up Rowan's character arc in Season One. He goes from running away from a dianoga to repeatedly taking on a Sith in one-on-one combat!
- Unskilled, but Strong: He's one of the few practicing Force-sensitives left in the galaxy after the Jedi Purge. As such, his spotty training renders him incapable of performing more complex Force abilities and lightsaber attacks. That being said, he's capable enough to survive numerous fights against Naare and M-OC, thanks to a lot of practice and repeated viewings of the combat techniques of the old Jedi Masters. After some training with Jek-14, his Force-building abilities are second to none. And that's not even getting into his unique connection to the Kyber Saber crystals.
The worldly-wise, penny-pinching middle sibling of the Freemakers. After the Galactic Civil War, she becomes a senator in the New Republic.
- Action Girl: She'd really rather talk her way out of sticky situations, but when push comes to shove, she's devastatingly accurate with the StarScavenger's blasters and even manages to down Naare's Eclipse Fighter with the cannons of a recently repaired AT-AT.
- Big Eater: Occasionally displays a huge appetite, not surprising given the Freemakers' Season One status of Perpetual Poverty.
- Big Sister Instinct: Toward Rowan. As he puts it:Rowan [to Naare]: Sorry about Kordi. She's just crazy protective. Or... maybe just crazy.
- Catharsis Factor: In-Universe, on Hoth, Kordi takes great relish in shooting at Naare with an AT-AT.Kordi: I've been waiting a long time for this.
- Chain of Deals: How she gets the Freemakers into the Rebel Alliance. After Ackbar is disappointed to hear that Rowan got rid of the Kyber Saber, she decides to go on a bartering spree across the galaxy to prove her chops, managing to eventually trade a rusty and barely usable ignition switch for an incredibly hard-to-get Type-A vector coil.
- Character Development: Kordi becomes a much straighter example of Women Are Wiser in Season Two, as she no longer has to be preoccupied with worrying about making the rent. She quickly settles into a management position in the Rebel Alliance, and by the time of All-Stars, she's become a senator in the New Republic.
- Closer to Earth: Usually, though not always, particularly where money is concerned.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Appears as an infant in an episode of All-Stars.
- Famed in Story: It's mentioned in All-Stars that she's a senator for the New Republic.
- Guile Hero: Tries unsuccessfully to pull a Bavarian Fire Drill on the stormtroopers in the Season One premiere. She has better luck at Kashyyyk and Cloud City.
- Improbable Aiming Skills: Downplayed, but she manages to shoot down Naare's Eclipse Fighter with the cannons of a recently repaired AT-AT, no mean feat since she's never piloted one before.
- Money Fetish: Kordi is known for doing nigh-impossible feats when/if money is on the line. Naare takes advantage of this flaw as a means of psychological torture when she burns a stash of credits in front of Kordi for the purpose of drawing out Rowan.
- Her last line (and in fact the very last line in the first season) is her asking whether a job the Rebels have offered is a paying job.
- The Smart Guy: She's the most level-headed and reasonable of the Freemakers... unless there's money involved.
- Uncertain Doom: Hopefully, she wasn't on Hosnian Prime when it blew up...
- Women Are Wiser: Is frequently the one to rein both of her brothers in when they run off to do their own thing and basically has complete command of the landing bay she works at, seamlessly managing the supplies and fixing the ships.
The oldest of the Freemaker siblings, Zander is an expert mechanic and pilot. He is highly excitable and incredibly enthusiastic about flying.
- Ace Pilot: Despite being a human without any apparent Force abilities, he won a podrace despite being chased by bounty hunters and has outflown Naare on at least two occasions. One of those occasions resulted in the wings of the Eclipse Fighter being clipped.
- In Season Two, he's the one who's chosen to fly the Arrowhead, which he does with aplomb.
- Achievements in Ignorance: Despite lacking Force-sensitivity, he often makes offhand comments that directly help Rowan develop his Force skills.
- Amazon Chaser: One of the prime reasons for his infatuation with Naare. It's downplayed with Princess Leia due to The Dulcinea Effect and the fact that he never really sees her in action. However, Becky Smoochenbacher is his One True Love.
- Annoying Younger Sibling: He can come across as this to Kordi, even though he's actually older than her.
- BFG: Taken Up to Eleven in the first episode of Season Two, where (upon being informed that his starfighter needs blasters) he proceeds to outfit it with More Dakka, including a truly monstrous cannon that's bigger than the ship. No points for guessing how well that works out for him.
- Big Brother Bully: Thankfully averted most of the time. It only really occurs once, and Rowan's only mildly irritated by it.
- Catchphrase: His page quote. It often varies depending on the context, e.g. "I'm Zander Freemaker, All About the Blasters Guy!"
- Covered in Kisses: In "Return of the Return of the Jedi" when he and his siblings are rescued by Becky Smoochenbacher, who confesses that she was always been in love with him before giving him a smooch, leaving him covered in kiss marks.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Appears as a toddler in an episode of All-Stars, where he inadvertently persuades his father Pace to rescue the battle droid who would become Roger.
- The Engineer
- Genius Ditz: He's the goofiest of the three siblings, but is a genuinely good engineer and mechanic.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: After subjecting a TIE fighter squadron to a Mook Horror Show in the Blazemaker, Zander deploys the mega-cannon against the retreating survivors — and promptly blows up his own ship.
- I Resemble That Remark!: When Naare tells the Freemakers the Jedi mind trick only works on weak-minded people, he repeats the explanation like he's under that trance in spite of Naare not even trying the trick while explaining it.
- Insistent Terminology: Takes issue with Kordi's use of the term "uglies" for his kitbashed custom-made starships, preferring the name "Z-Wings." The pride he has for his creations is used against him as a means of psychological torture by Naare when she dismantles them in front of Zander to draw out Rowan.
- Mr. Fixit
- One-Man Army: Starship version. Justified due to the absurd amount of blasters and cannons on his Blazemaker.Zander: I'm just one man in a ship...loaded with a ridiculous amount of blasters!
R0-GR "Roger" Freemaker
Model: B1-series battle droid
A battle droid who managed to survive the Clone Wars (sort of), Roger faithfully serves as the Freemakers' general-purpose droid and companion, at least when he's not busy tripping over his own feet.
- Affably Evil: Prior to his HeelFace Brainwashing. After Pace attaches an arm to replace the one he lost, R0-GR gratefully thanks him for equipping him to continue his mission to eliminate the Jedi scum.
- Bad Liar: Oh so very much. "We're all...uh...asleep!", Roger? Really?
- Badly Battered Babysitter: To Rowan, at least at first.
- Been There, Shaped History: Well, okay, not really. All-Stars reveals that he was present at the Battle of Naboo and the Battle of Geonosis, along with pivotal moments in the Clone Wars — but, without fail, he got destroyed or disabled before he was able to do more than say a few words.
- He also nearly manages to ruin a covert data transfer to Cassian Andor and K-2SO, but Kaytoo bails him out and relieves him of said data.
- Beware the Silly Ones: With his goofy demeanor and bumbling antics, it's easy to forget that he's a veteran of the Clone Wars (okay, sort of — see Cosmic Plaything below for details) and that his combat programming was not purged from his memory banks — but upon seeing his buddy R0-HK take damage during the skirmish in the Palpatine Museum, he flies into an Unstoppable Rage, grabs a (working) blaster, and goes on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge that sends hardened Bounty Hunter Dengar running for his life!
- Breakout Character: He was created exclusively for the show, which was always meant to have an ambiguous connection to the lore, but his popularity with viewers is likely why he (and by proxy, M-OC) appeared in the book Droidography, which elevates him to official canon status.
- Canon Immigrant: He's brought into canon by Droidography.
- Character Development: His first reaction to meeting Naare was to flee in terror at the sight of the "Jedi" (see his image quote), but he later utters a sarcastic "Thank you, Mr. Jedi" to Luke Skywalker for failing to save him (indicating that he was expecting that the Jedi would rescue him), and by the Battle of Jakku, he proudly declares himself to be the first Jedi droid. (Alas, he's incorrect, but it's the thought that counts.)
- Cosmic Plaything: He's been repaired a surprising number of times for disposable Cannon Fodder. Of course, all this means is that he's had the "honor" for getting cut to pieces by several of the greatest Jedi in the galaxy.
- Deadpan Snarker: "Good news! My programming doesn't allow for I-told-you-sos!"
- Do-Anything Robot: Comes across as this, what with the cleaning, maintenance, cooking, slicing...
- He doesn't do translating, though, which leads to some trouble during the mission to Kashyyyk.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Manufactures a fully functional droid buffer, apparently all by himself. (Of course, he really shouldn't have been building it in the middle of a pitched space battle, and the buffer settings need some work, but still.) He also assists with starship repairs from time to time.
- Genius Ditz: He's a Do-Anything Robot with an incredibly vast array of skills, but isn't particularly good at any of them and often causes bigger problems due to his clumsiness. He also boasts a long and storied history, with perfect recall of all of it — unfortunately, his lack of discretion often enables the bad guys to use that knowledge against him and his family.
- Headphones Equal Isolation: An unintentional and justified version. Roger wears a pair of industrial-strength earmuffs while assembling his droid buffer, and it's so effective that he somehow misses the space battle that erupts around him.
- HeelFace Brainwashing: All-Stars reveals that he was found on an abandoned battlefield by Pace and Lena and reprogrammed to serve them. He's aware of his reprogramming and perfectly fine with it.
- Heel Realization: Averted; he does not take it well when told the Separatists were the bad guys and reboots himself in order to forget this revelation.
- Hollywood Hacking: In Season Two, it turns out that he's capable of doing this as well with his trusty datapad. Possibly justified since it only occurs on the Wheel, the Freemakers' home space station in Season One.
- I Should Write a Book About This: He actually has! (And the rest of the galaxy wishes that he hadn't.) From Trenches to Wrenches: The Roger Story is available on the HoloNet, has at least 482 chapters (which would probably make it a Doorstopper except it's apparently in ebook format), and is regarded by everyone from Wick Cooper to Captain Phasma to be extremely poorly written. Roger, however, is quite proud of his work and eagerly (and rather hammily) reads chapters to anyone who'll listen (and even some who won't). Oh, and he's working on a sequel, From Trenches to Wrenches: The Roger Story, Volume 2.
- Last of His Kind: Believes himself to be this, although Mister Bones might have something to say about that...
- Lovable Coward: Is this, ironically for a battle droid. He's fully aware of this too, to the point of openly informing others of his cowardice. The Freemakers (and the audience) love him anyway, since he's such a Nice Guy who honestly does his best to help out. It doesn't hurt that he can be a Cowardly Lion when pushed far enough.
- Nice Guy: Is this in spades, although he has an unfortunate tendency to bungle it due to his clumsiness. Upon joining the Rebel Alliance, Roger takes the initiative to befriend the local droids (for all the good it does him and them), and All-Stars shows that he was genuinely friendly even prior to his HeelFace Brainwashing. Notably, immediately after (or possibly even during) said brainwashing, he hugs a young Zander when the curious toddler climbs into his lap.
- Old Retainer: Serves three generations of Freemakers over the course of The Freemaker Adventures and All-Stars, as he mentions to Moxie in a surprisingly heartfelt moment near the end of All-Stars. Disturbingly, he never comments about exactly what happened to his former masters.
- Pulling Themselves Together: Is capable of doing this, although whether he does so in any given situation usually depends on the Rule of Funny.
- Robot Buddy: For the Freemakers in general, although he usually winds up accompanying Rowan.
- Rooting for the Empire: Is convinced the Separatists were the good guys of the Clone Wars, and when corrected, proceeds to freak out and reboot himself rather than deal with this.
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: Played for Laughs. Roger still remembers his experiences in the Clone Wars and does not enjoy getting dismembered repeatedly by the Jedi he was pitted against. Hence panicking the way all B1 battle droids did in response to seeing a Jedi.
- Played for Drama (somewhat) near the end of Season One, when Rowan insists on rewatching Roger's memories of his various defeats. Roger is clearly uncomfortable and attempts to distract Rowan with a memory of a Staircase Tumble, but the stakes are so high at this point that his angsting is the least of anybody's concerns.
- Supreme Chef: Tries his best to be this, bless his processor. He does seem to be improving in Season Two, if Rowan's reaction to his cookies is anything to go by.
- Undying Loyalty: To the Freemakers. While he's proud to be a droid, he's even prouder to be a Freemaker, and he will side with his adoptive family over his droid brethren when push comes to shove, as N3-RO and his posse find out.
- Unusually Uninteresting Sight: No one seems to be even fazed by the sight of a battle droid walking about.
- Verbal Tic Name: Takes his name from the B1 battle droids' classic catchphrase: "Roger, roger!"
A girl whom Zander has a crush on.
- Action Girl: She is revealed to be an Imperial gunner.
- Brick Joke: She's only namedropped once (okay, twice in very quick succession) during Season One, but Zander finds many more reasons to bring her up throughout Season Two, culminating in her finally showing up in the final episode.
- Deus ex Machina: Exaggerated. The Freemakers are captured on the Death Star II, thrown into a cell, and the priceless Kyber Saber handed to an Imperial Guard to bring to the Emperor. But that's no ordinary guard: it's Zander's long-time crush, the oft-mentioned but never seen Becky Smoochenbacher. Did you know she had become an Imperial Guard? Did you know she had a crush on Zander too? Ain't Love Grand?
- The Cavalry: She rescues the Freemakers when they are captured at the Death Star II.
- Chekhov's Gunman: After being The Ghost in a Running Gag for the entire show, she shows up in the Grand Finale, being an Imperial gunner that rescues the Freemakers from the Death Star II before it blows up.
- Defecting for Love: She joins the Empire after the Freemakers left the Wheel, but spontaneously performs a High-HeelFace Turn upon discovering that her beloved Zander is a Rebel. They eventually marry and have a daughter.
- Easily Forgiven: Apparently Becky didn't face any consequences for working for the Empire while the Freemakers didn't seem to mind either. It doesn't hurt that her biggest onscreen offense is wearing the wrong uniform.
- The Ghost: Despite being frequently brought up by Zander, but she never shows up in person, even when Kordi and Leia visit the Wheel's upper ring. Finally averted when she shows up in the Grand Finale.
- I Can't Believe a Guy Like You Would Notice Me: Just like Zander, Becky always thought he didn't even know who she was.
- Last Episode, New Character: She debuts in the Grand Finale, although she's mentioned several times over the course of the show.
- Meaningful Name: Gives Zander a smooch after professing her love for him.
- Missing Mom: All-Stars reveals that Moxie is her daughter, but she never shows up in the series proper, not even in flashbacks.
- Running Gag: Zander professing his love for her in Season Two.
- Uptown Girl: She lived in the Upper Ring of The Wheel, which is stated to be reserved for "the rich, the super-rich, and the Empire."
Emperor Sheev Palpatine/Darth Sidious
The Emperor of the Galactic Empire.
For more on him outside of the show, see his canonical entry here.
- Big Bad: Well, he's the leader of the Empire, so...
- Doomed by Canon: The final episode of Season 2 takes place during the finale of Return of the Jedi, and he's thus seen falling to his death.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Is flabbergasted when Rowan reveals that he threw the Kyber Saber in a lava pit, never having considered that he would have destroyed a weapon that powerful.
- Locked Out of the Loop: Is unaware that Rowan threw the Kyber Saber in a lava pit until late in Season Two, and thus he keeps on talking about how much he wants it.
- Mythology Gag: When Rowan has Naare at his mercy, Palpatine tells the boy to finish her with a familiar, "Do it!", just as he told Anakin Skywalker over a decade earlier. Ironically enough, this is what makes Rowan realize that what he's doing is exactly what he shouldn't be doing, releasing Naare before bailing with the Kyber Saber.
- Pet the Dog: Actually compliments Naare at the end of the first episode, when she reveals that she's found someone who can sense the Kyber Saber crystals. It almost comes across as Early Installment Weirdness since he never does it again for the rest of the season.
- Pointy-Haired Boss: Towards Darth Vader and especially Naare. With all the times he insults and belittles Naare over the course of Season One, it's really no surprise that she turns on him the minute she feels that she can get away with it.(Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader are holocalling Naare)
Emperor Palpatine: Find those crystals. I will check your progress again soon.
(the holocall disconnects; Naare grunts in frustration and turns away, when the hologram suddenly appears again)
Emperor Palpatine: Status report! What have you done since we last spoke, hmm?
- Psychopathic Manchild: His personality in this continuity, to the point of making him almost Laughably Evil.Emperor Palpatine (upon being briefed on the Kyber Saber): Ooh, Emperor likey! What's it do? Don't care, I want it. GIMME GIMME GIMME!
- You Have Failed Me: In a stunning subversion, he confronts Lt Cdr Durpin for bungling the affair with the prison on Kashyyyk — and concludes that his failure was caused by his reliance on the Trandoshans, deciding that he should be promoted to General for his efforts! Naturally, Durpin would almost rather that this trope were played straight.
Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader
Palpatine's right hand.
For more on him outside of the show, see his canonical entry here.
- Blatant Lies: After his Naboo starfighter gets destroyed (see The Knights Who Say "Squee!" below), Palpatine calls up and demands to know how the Freemakers escaped. Since doesn't need his boss never letting him live down the fact that he got sidetracked by nostalgia, Vader just says that they were really good.
- Book-Ends: Opens both seasonsnote pitching the second Death Star to a bored Palpatine.
- Butt-Monkey: Palpatine likes picking on him.
- The Cavalry Arrives Late: A villainous version. He misses the entire showdown with Naare at the final episode of Season One, as Palpatine had dispatched him to Mygeeto at the beginning of the episode. By the time he returns to Coruscant, Palpatine's office is in ruins, the Freemakers have escaped, Naare has disappeared, and (worst of all, according to Palpatine) the Kyber Saber is gone.Darth Vader: (leaps into the scene with drawn lightsaber) I'm back! (looks around in confusion at the wreckage and deactivates his lightsaber) What did I miss?!
- Cool and Unusual Punishment: Since a family-friendly show obviously can't depict any of his more brutal forms of punishment, he usually settles for using the Force to manhandle his victims in amusing ways.
- The Dragon: To Palpatine, but neither of them seem to like each other.
- The Dreaded: Per the norm, especially given his near-prescient ability to know what his allies (usually Graballa the Hutt) are saying and to arrive (usually on the Executor) immediately after they lose the Freemakers.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Inverted. Upon the completion of his Character Arc in Season Two, he disappears from the show (which admittedly only has a few episodes left) except for a cameo appearance at the beginning of the Grand Finale — escorting Luke Skywalker to the Emperor's throne room in the second Death Star, tipping off the audience that he doesn't have much longer to live.
- Failed a Spot Check: Exaggerated when he's having such a good time flying an N-1 Naboo starfighter that he fails to notice a small group of TIE fighters coming up behind him until they simultaneously open fire.Darth Vader: Ah. I see them now.
- Killed Offscreen: The Grand Finale occurs on the second Death Star during the climax of Return of the Jedi, and since it does not show the Emperor's throne room (aside from a brief scene at the beginning), this is Vader's fate by default.
- The Knights Who Say "Squee!": Upon noticing a Naboo starfighter, he begins squeeing almost immediately and abandons his captives to take it out for a joyride, feeling nostalgic for those spins.
- Knight of Cerebus: He's a lot scarier and more menacing in Season Two, probably due to the influence of Rogue One.
- Manipulative Bastard: His game plan in Season Two: allow M-OC to hunt down Rowan Freemaker, then swoop in, destroy M-OC, nab Rowan, and claim all the credit for capturing him. It goes off without a hitch, although he didn't count on (or perhaps didn't care about) M-OC's ability to reassemble himself.
- Mouth of Sauron: Occasionally speaks on behalf of Palpatine when giving Naare a hard time, although Palpatine usually roasts her himself. On one occasion, Vader starts the "The Reason You Suck" Speech only for Palpatine to butt into the conversation to yell at Naare personally.
- Moving the Goalposts: A literal example. During a test of M-OC's capabilities, Vader discreetly uses the Force to reset a downed target dummy and then move it around to dodge M-OC's shots — at least until Palpatine wises up to the ruse.
- Not So Different: From Zander Freemaker of all people, with the way he excitedly squees over the Naboo starfighter. Not only is the similarity exaggerated, it might also be slightly subverted as it stems from different motivations — general starship enthusiasm for Zander, old memories for Vader.
- Once Done, Never Forgotten: Palpatine still brings up that time he let the Rebels destroy the first Death Star. Complete with making him watch replays of the event (using Stock Footage from Droid Tales).
- Psychic Strangle: Per the source material, he really likes Force-choking those who annoy him. Especially a certain incompetent Hutt.
- Psychopathic Manchild: More Manchild in Season One and much more Psychopathic in Season Two, but he's unquestionably this throughout the show.
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With M-OC in Season Two, after Palpatine forces them to work together. Unsurprisingly, the two come to blows, and Vader clearly relishes the opportunity to indulge in some Evil Gloating about his Evil Plan as he's tearing M-OC to pieces.
- The Unfavorite: Downplayed, but Palpatine compares him unfavorably to Count Dooku Once a Season.
Species: Unknown (near-human)
One of the few surviving Jedi in the galaxy...or so she would have you believe. She's actually an Imperial agent, assigned by Emperor Palpatine to retrieve the hidden fragments of the Kyber Saber.
- Action Girl/Dark Action Girl: She's a woman and can kick butt, and she also happens to be secretly evil.
- Arc Villain: While Vader and Palpatine are the Big Bads of the series, she's the main villain of the first season.
- Canon Immigrant: Dryden Vos is a member of the same species as her.
- The Cameo: In Season Two, a disguised Kordi runs into her carbonite block while exploring Graballa's yacht.Kordi: Ew.
- Her carbonite block also appears in All-Stars, when Baash and Raam haul it into Graballa's Beachside Resort and Café and mount it on a wall. Which probably means that it gets buried in the rubble when the resort collapses — Fridge Horror for anyone else, but Kick the Son of a Bitch since it's Naare we're talking about.
- Deadpan Snarker: More obvious when she shows her true colors.
- The Dragon: To the Emperor and Darth Vader.
- Dual Wielding: Briefly wields both of her lightsabers during her clash with Rowan in the Palpatine Museum. Thankfully, she never gets to do more than a rather intimidating double Sword Drag before Rowan triggers a series of Disaster Dominoes that winds up with him in possession of her blue lightsaber, which he keeps for the rest of the show.
- Averted in the first season finale, where Naare never utilizes her lightsaber alongside the Kyber Saber. Of course, it's completely justified since the Kyber Saber is an Infinity +1 Sword that can destroy entire Star Destroyers with a single sweep, so an ordinary lightsaber would be completely redundant.
- First-Episode Twist: By the end of the first episode, it's revealed that she's an agent of the Empire, searching for the Kyber Saber at the behest of the Emperor and Darth Vader. The Freemakers are blissfully unaware of Naare's true allegiance for the first half of the season.
- Human Popsicle: Ultimately gets caught by Graballa and frozen in carbonite. Which ironically means that she — or, rather, her carbonite block — outlasts just about all of the main characters.
- Evil Is Sexy: Although she plays the mother figure, and is made of plastic, her face, especially her tattoos, and demeanor give her a charm that wins over Zander easily.
- Hero Killer: Manages to take down the Maker of Zoh, AKA Jek-14, previously established in the (non-canon) Yoda Chronicles to be a One-Man Army capable of taking on the Jedi and Sith by himself, at the same time. Of course, it's entirely possible that Jek's age and focus on Force-building rather than combat have dulled his edge — and, as it turns out, Jek himself is Not Quite Dead.
- Knight of Cerebus: She's the most clear and dangerous threat to the Freemakers, as opposed to the Laughably Evil Ineffectual Sympathetic Villains Graballa and his henchmen (to say nothing of Durpin and Plumestriker), and she takes the task of collecting the Kyber Saber crystals very seriously.
- Mama Bear: To Rowan, seemingly. Even though she's actually faking it, she's really good at it.
- Mind over Matter: Her telekinetic abilities are terrifyingly strong, as she's shown to be able to singlehandedly stop the escaping StarScavenger and later tear it to pieces with the Force. She also bests Rowan in all of their Force-pulling contests and thus easily steals all of the Kyber Saber pieces from him, but that changes in the climax when Rowan utilizes his unique connection to the pieces instead.
- Ms. Exposition: Provides Rowan (and the audience) with background information on the Kyber Saber's history and power.
- Person of Mass Destruction: As mentioned above, she uses the Force to rip the StarScavenger to pieces. Taken Up to Eleven once she manages to reassemble the Kyber Saber, as she levels hills and wipes out entire Star Destroyers all by herself, not to mention all the property damage during her rampage on Coruscant.
- Scarily Competent Tracker: After her true colors are exposed, she displays an uncanny (and honestly rather terrifying) ability to swoop in almost immediately after Rowan retrieves a Kyber Saber crystal, though she shouldn't even know which planet the Freemakers are on at the time. Fortunately, the cause of said tracking ability — Roger's transmitter, which he inadvertently left on after the Tatooine adventure and thus has been letting Naare and Graballa listen in on the Freemakers' conversations — is identified and dealt with by the end of the episode; unfortunately, at that point, there's only one crystal left unaccounted for, and Naare and co. already know that it's on Hoth.
- Slasher Smile: Sports some pretty chilling ones, even when pretending to be a benevolent Jedi.
- The Starscream: Predictably turns against the Emperor upon obtaining the restored Kyber Saber, going on a rampage at Coruscant.
- Super Senses: A standard component of the Force-sensitive package, and she uses them to devastating effect during the initial aerial chase on Hoth, nailing one of the StarScavenger's engines with precise laser shots from her Eclipse Fighter in the midst of a blinding blizzard and narrowly avoiding a collision with a cliff face. Unfortunately for her, Dengar does not possess these senses, and neither does whomever is piloting Graballa's yacht.
- Treacherous Advisor: Is secretly an agent of Darth Vader.
- Walking Spoiler: Just in case you couldn't tell from all the whited-out entries above. She's evil, in case that was unclear. Heck, this is a First-Episode Twist!
Durpin and Plumestriker
A pair of Imperial officers who have the misfortune of crossing paths with the Freemakers on numerous occasions.
- Establishing Character Moment: Their very first lines in their debut episode.Lt Plumestriker: Lieutenant Commander Durpin, I have a status report — nothing is happening. At all. Anywhere.
Lt Cdr Durpin: Which is just how I like it, Lieutenant Plumestriker. If nothing happens, then nothing can go wrong.
- Exit, Pursued by a Wampa: How they make their exit from the Hoth episode (and, as it turns out, from Season One), although Season Two reveals that they somehow managed to survive the ordeal. As an added bonus, they wind up running over Naare when she's got the Freemakers dead to rights, allowing them to escape while she's down.
- Harmless Villain: Due to their diametrically opposed goals causing them to sabotage each other's efforts.
- Once per Episode: They sport new ranks in every episode they appear in, often related to the aftermath of the last episode they appeared in. Plumestriker's rank is unknown for most of Season Two.
- Shoo Out the Clowns: They disappear from Season One prior to the final conflicts. They're back in Season Two to indicate its return to the series' lighthearted goofiness, but they make their exit again halfway through the season as things start to get serious again.
- Status Quo Is God: Despite having ended Season One demoted to Ensign and Sub-Ensign respectively (not to mention fleeing from their lives from a rampaging wampa), Durpin and Plumestriker reappear in Season Two no worse for wear and even commanding an Imperial warship, not unlike their initial appearance in Season One. Although it should be noted that their new ship is much more modest than their old Star Destroyer.
- Those Two Bad Guys: Although Durpin just wishes that he was anywhere else, while Plumestriker is mostly a Punch-Clock Villain at worst.
- Villain Team-Up: Notably averted. They almost never appear in the same episodes as the Big Bads, and in the rare event that they do, it's abundantly clear that they're not working with them. They even directly (albeit accidentally) sabotage Naare's efforts at one point!
- Villainous Rescue: An inadvertent version. At one point, Naare has cornered the Freemakers and is indulging in some Evil Gloating when Durpin and Plumestriker run her over while fleeing a rampaging wampa, enabling the Freemakers to escape in the confusion.
Lieutenant Commander/General/Ensign/Captain/Commander/Sub-Ensign Durpin
An Imperial officer who is completely aware of the fate that tends to befall those of high standing in the Empire who fail in Darth Vader's presence. Thus, he is determined not to be promoted in order to avoid Vader's notice.
- Head-in-the-Sand Management: His MO for providing security for the Palpatine Museum. Unfortunately, it doesn't work when the Freemakers are the ones raiding the museum.Cdr Plumestriker: What was that?!
Gen Durpin: What? What, that extremely loud explosion? Nothing.
- It's Probably Nothing: Desperately wishes that this were the case, and actively refuses to investigate (or to allow Plumestriker to investigate) possible "somethings" until his hand is forced.
- Pet the Dog: After peering closely at a nervous Palpatine Museum staff member to ensure that he's not a disguised Zander Freemaker, Durpin gives him a friendly smile and kindly directs him to the museum's Clone Wars exhibit.
- Reassigned to Antarctica: Actually welcomes this assignment to Hoth, as he's convinced that the remote posting will allow him to live out his days in obscurity. Unfortunately for him, Hoth hosts a Kyber Saber crystal...
- Suspiciously Specific Denial: A slight variant.Cdr Plumestriker: Sir, did you hear that?
Gen Durpin: That smash of breaking glass? No, I did not.
- Tempting Fate:
Durpin's second-in-command, Plumestriker is an ambitious and (reasonably) competent officer who is rather ignorant of the risks of career advancement in the Empire, especially with regards to what happens to high-ranking Imperials who fail in their assigned tasks when Darth Vader is around.
- Hyper-Competent Sidekick: It's strongly implied that he sees himself as such, but as mentioned under Wrong Genre Savvy below, he completely fails to realize that his superior's incompetence is at least partially deliberate.
- Luke Nounverber: Possibly a parody of this trope's use in the Star Wars franchise.
- Number Two: To Durpin. Inverted in their final appearance on Jakku.
- Professional Butt-Kisser: Comes across as one, although it seems to be because his career advancement is tied to Durpin's.
- Spanner in the Works: Sends out an SOS call upon encountering the Freemakers at Hoth Base One, allowing Naare, Graballa, and company (who had lost track of the Freemakers earlier) to zero in on the Freemakers' location and setting up the episode's final conflict.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: He seems to think he and Durpin hold positions in a regular job environment, and hasn't caught any of the hints as to why Durpin wisely fears promotion or high-profile work assignments.
Model: Hunter droid
A special hunter droid commissioned by Emperor Palpatine to hunt down Rowan Freemaker after the loss of the Kyber Saber.
- Arc Villain: Of Season 2.
- Canon Immigrant: By Droidography, although the specific details are unknown.
- Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Unlike Naare, he's a lot more logically minded, less temperamental, only loyal to the Emperor, and has a much more hands-on approach to the task given to him.
- Deadpan Snarker: Much to the amusement of Palpatine and to the irritation of Vader.Darth Vader: He lacks the ability to use the Force!
M-OC: Correct. I also lack offspring that wish to overthrow the Emperor.
- Death by Irony: After chastising Rowan for being unfocused in their final battle, seeing the Emperor fall to his death breaks his concentration, which allows Rowan to enact the killing blow against him.
- The Dreaded: The Freemakers are very scared of him, due to their fights frequently ending in a stalemate, since all they can do is inconvenience him at best.
- Implacable Man: No matter how many times Rowan, and once even Vader smash him. He just puts himself back together and gets right back to hunting down the Freemaker. It's cleverly Deconstructed later on when Rowan points out how pointless the cycle is. Of course M-OC interprets it differently, but still.
- Knight of Cerebus: His physical presence almost always leads to the Freemakers needing to run for their lives, since it's almost impossible to concretely defeat him.
- Shout-Out: In Lego, MOCs (or, "My Original Creation") are original Lego creations. M-OC is an original creation and there is only one of its kind. Palpatine references this when he introduces him to Vader.
- There Was a Door: Tends to blow open a hole and exit through it, once even blowing a hole through an existing door. Vader lampshades this the first time it happens.
- This Cannot Be!: When he sees Palpatine falling to his death in the Death Star II.
- Undying Loyalty: To the Emperor. Watching Palpatine die actually ends up being his undoing, since he's so in shock that it gives Rowan an opening to destroy him.
- Weapon of Choice: Palpatine gives him an Inquisitor lightsaber... only for M-OC to accidentally split it in two, meaning he has to dual-wield instead.
Alliance High Command and Rebel Heroes
Commander Luke Skywalker
A famed hero of the Rebel Alliance and aspiring Jedi Knight.
For more on him outside of the show, see his canonical entry here.
- Bad Liar: He's hilariously inept at making up cover stories, to the point that even the twelve-year-old Rowan sees right through him.Rowan Freemaker: Wow. You are a terrible liar.
Luke Skywalker (indignantly): No I'm not!
- Big Brother Mentor: Serves as one to Rowan.
- Nice Guy: Which is even more impressive when you consider that The Freemaker Adventures is set between The Empire Strikes Back (where his friend Han Solo was captured, he lost his hand to Darth Vader, and he learned the Awful Truth of his heritage) and Return of the Jedi (where he enters the film by Force-choking some of Jabba the Hutt's Gamorrean guards, which is normally considered a Dark Side tactic). Despite all of this baggage, he's never anything other than kind and encouraging to Rowan.
Princess/General Leia Organa
A famed leader of the Rebel Alliance, and later the founder and commanding officer of the Resistance.
For more on her outside of the show, see her canonical entry here.
- Action Girl: Per the norm for her character. She's introduced manning the guns of a Y-Wing starfighter piloted by Luke Skywalker.
- Ascended Extra: Only appears in a single episode of Season One, and is conspicuously absent throughout Season Two aside from a non-speaking cameo during the post-Death Star II victory party on Endor — she's noticeably missing from gatherings of Alliance high command. As General Organa, however, she shows up much more frequently during the Sequel Trilogy episodes of All-Stars.
- Berserk Button: When Wick Cooper makes a Dude, Not Funny! joke about Alderaan right in front of her, she literally kicks him out of his own apartment. According to her, she was showing restraint.
- Quest Giver: Personally sends Moxie, Ka-Pao, and Roger to scout out old Rebel bases that could be of use to the Resistance.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: When a Resistance officer orders Moxie to wipe Roger's memory and shut him down because the droid has been making too many slip-ups, Moxie refuses. Leia comes by and tells Moxie that she doesn't have to, because she knows that droids are people too and mean a lot to others — while glancing at Threepio idly looking a dormant Artoo in the background.
A famed hero of the Rebel Alliance.
For more on him outside of the show, see his canonical entry here.
- Ascended Extra: Only shows up Once a Season in The Freemaker Adventures, although he can also be briefly glimpsed at the post-Death Star II victory party on Endor. He plays a much more important role in the Solo episodes of All-Stars.
- Fire-Forged Friends: Downplayed with Lena, but she obviously remembers his Heroic Sacrifice and is overjoyed to see him again — which is humorously compared to the outright hostility displayed by her husband Pace to Chewie's companion Han Solo.
- The Glomp: Per the norm. He's capable of hugging all of the Freemakers — and lifting them all off of the ground — at the same time. All-Stars reveals that he is capable of being tactful with his affection, as he hugs Lena more gently since she's holding the infant Kordi.
- Heroic Sacrifice: A non-lethal version (obviously). He stays on the train that's bringing him and Lena to an Imperial prison so that Lena can escape.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He barely interacts with Lena before circumstances force them to part ways, but his Heroic Sacrifice (see above) puts her on the path to meet Pace — and it's possible that his sacrifice also helped to nudge her to start believing in others again after getting betrayed by her partner-in-crime.
- Those Two Guys: Tends to hang around Lando Calrissian a lot, as his normal partner Han Solo is frozen in carbonite and in the clutches of Jabba the Hutt at this point in time. He's seen with Han exactly once — in an episode of All-Stars set some time after the events of Solo.
General Lando Calrissian
A famed hero of the Rebel Alliance.
For more on him outside of the show, see his canonical entry here.
- Nice Guy: Warmly thanks the Freemakers for helping him out and gives them the promised reward without any attempt at deception, a far cry from the scoundrel seen in Solo and Rebels.
- Notably, All-Stars shows that he was this even before the events of Solo: he willingly hires Pace and Lena despite not knowing who they are, is fairly upfront with them that he's hiring them for a difficult job (although he's light on details), stalls for time when it would be much easier and safer for him to betray them to their pursuers, holds no ill will towards them for ruining the job, offers them sound advice about going into hiding to evade their pursuers, brings them to the Wheel, and apparently gives them shop space — all without asking anything in return. And despite the fact that Han Solo trashed his beloved Millennium Falcon and subsequently took it away from him, he still evidently trusted him enough to inform him of Pace's location. What a guy.
- Secret Secret-Keeper: All-Stars retroactively reveals that he's this to the Freemakers, as he was the one who dropped Pace and Lena off at the Wheel, (apparently) gave them the space that they used for their shop, and unintentionally inspired Lena to adopt the surname "Freemaker." For whatever reason, he keeps mum about this connection, never informing the Freemakers about his relationship with their parents.
Admiral Gial Ackbar
Species: Mon Calamari
A top-ranking officer of the Rebel Alliance Navy.
For more on him outside of the show, see his canonical entry on the Rebel Alliance & New Republic Navy page.
- Dumbass No More: Compared to his depictions in the other LEGO Star Wars shows, he takes his job a bit more seriously, though there are some points where he's still the point of comedy.
General Hera Syndulla
A top-ranking officer of the Rebel Alliance Navy.
- Ambiguous Situation: So far, we haven't seen the Ghost with her yet. And since Rebels was about to start its final season a couple of months after Season 2 of The Freemaker Adventures began airing, it also raised the question of what happened to the other characters of Rebels, particularly of those who joined the Alliance.
- Badass in Charge: To get an idea of how badass she is, you might wanna watch Rebels.
- Big Good: One of them in Season 2 alongside Admiral Ackbar, Senator Mothma, and General Madine.
- A Mother to Her Men: Even though the Ghost crew and Phoenix Squadron are not present in the same form they used to be, she continues to lead the Rebel Alliance with great care and consideration, including to the Freemakers (and especially Rowan).
- You Remind Me of X: Possibly. Considering the way she treats Rowan, it's almost evocative of how she treated Ezra back in Rebels.
General Crix Madine
A top-ranking officer of the Rebel Alliance Army and Alliance SpecForces.
For more on him outside of the show, see his canonical entry on the Rebel Alliance & New Republic Army page.
Senator Mon Mothma
The leader of the Rebel Alliance.
For more on her outside of the show, see her canonical entry on the New Republic Senate page.
- Big Good: She's the leader of the Rebel Alliance.
Model: C1-series astromech droid
A rather cantankerous astromech droid owned by General Hera Syndulla.
- Everybody Has Standards: After Roger accidentally blows up the droid lounge, Chopper and the other droids chase him out.
- Friendship Moment: Seems to accept Roger after he creates a droid-washing drive thru, but considering that ended with them getting Thrown Out the Airlock due to faulty building and this is Chopper we're talking about, we can never be sure.
- Thrown Out the Airlock: After trying out Roger's droid buffer, the two of them get thrown out into the vacuum of space due to Roger's ditzy mechanic skills.
Species: Mon Calamari
A mechanic legendary among starship enthusiasts for creating the Blade Wing, otherwise known as the B-Wing. By the time of Return of the Jedi, he and his astromech droid, BG-81, reside in the lowest level of Home One, tinkering with new ship designs.
For more on him outside of the show, see his canonical entry on the Rebel Cells page.
- Ambiguous Situation: Due to canonical status of The Freemaker Adventures being "paraphrasal", his appearance seems to confirm that he's living inside of Home One and working on new stuff at least during the Time Skip between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
- Ascended Extra: After having only appeared in "Wings of the Master" from Rebels, he becomes responsible for helping Rowan create a new personal ship called the Arrowhead.
- Grumpy Old Man: Just like in Rebels, he'd prefer to be left alone to his own devices unless someone worthy of his attention comes along. He's initially dismissive of Rowan, thinking that Hera sent him down to his basement as an apprentice, though he soon changes his opinion.
The leader of Blue Squadron, currently stationed aboard Admiral Ackbar's Home One.
- Ace Pilot: She's Blue Leader for a reason.
- Sassy Black Woman: Pretty much her defining personality trait in the shorts.
- Ship Tease: Briefly with Zander in one of the promotional shorts for Season 2, but it's more about her loving to fly and Zander loving ships. Though the rest of the season shows it's really more of Valeria brushing off Zander's attempts to be a cool pilot and not letting him live any of those down.
Graballa the Hutt and Associates
Graballa the Hutt
A cousin of Jabba the Hutt, Graballa specializes in running mining operations but dreams of opening Graballa's Beachside Resort and Cafe, which he is having a hard time getting off the ground due to a lack of investors.
- Affably Evil: Remains cheerful and friendly even as he's feeding a twelve-year-old boy to his pet nexu, Smiley.
- Bad Boss: When a disguised Kordi Freemaker recommends that he reduce his staff headcount, he immediately proceeds to do just that — by jettisoning them into space. Naturally, this bites him in the rear almost immediately afterwards, as he can't stop the Freemakers from escaping because he's run out of Mooks.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Yes, he's a goofy, pathetic Butt-Monkey — but as a Hutt, he's also a vicious crime lord. Naare finds this out the hard way.
- Butt-Monkey: If Darth Vader is Force-choking someone, chances are that Graballa's the unlucky victim.
- Canon Immigrant: By Droidography.
- Cool Ship: His HQ looks like a version of Jabba's sail barge that can travel through space.
- Dude, Where's My Respect?: His dearest ambition is to build Graballa's Beachside Resort and Cafe, but all of his pleas for Jabba's assistance fall on deaf ears and he likewise has absolutely no success drumming up seed money from other investors. However, he's just villainous enough that he gets zero audience sympathy for his plight.
- Evil Laugh: Indulges in a few of these in one episode of All-Stars, which comes across as a rather Out-of-Character Moment since he never does it in The Freemaker Adventures. Of course, he never really had any reason to laugh during The Freemaker Adventures.
- Karma Houdini: He actually exits The Freemaker Adventures in a better position than he was at the beginning; having successfully completed his mission to deliver kyber crystals to the Empire, he's presumably going to be paid handsomely for his efforts and will thus finally be able to move forward with making his dream resort a reality. Getting Force-choked by Darth Vader and thrown into a wall is the equivalent to a slap on the wrist at that point.
- Large Ham: He's voiced by Dana Snyder, AKA Master Shake and Gazpacho. You do the math.
- Laser-Guided Karma: His last attempt to screw over the Freemaker family costs him his beloved resort. Also, see Bad Boss above.
- Perpetual Poverty: By Hutt standards, anyway. He's Surrounded by Idiots because he can't afford to hire better Mooks.
- Surrounded by Idiots: Mostly Baash and Raam, but none of his Mooks are particularly bright. Even his most effective operative, Dengar, is generally regarded as not being as good as Boba Fett.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: After being continually frustrated in his efforts to get Graballa's Beachside Resort and Cafe off the ground in The Freemaker Adventures, the Sequel Trilogy portion of All-Stars reveals that he finally managed to construct and open it on Canto Bight, and despite the First Order almost literally crashing its grand opening, business appears to be booming. It probably helps that, by that point, it's been thirty years since he last crossed paths with the Freemakers.
- Would Hurt a Child: Has no qualms about feeding Rowan to his pet nexu.
Graballa's right-hand Toydarian.
Baash and Raam
A pair of dimwitted Iktotchi who serve as Graballa's thugs, usually acting as backup to Dengar.
- Big Eater: Both of them. In fact, they're actually strongly opinionated about food.
- Bumbling Henchmen Duo: They're generally nuisances at worst, and they're often as much a hazard to their employer Graballa as they are to the Freemakers.
- The Dividual: They're never seen apart, and they often perform tasks together.
- Dumb Muscle: In Naare's words, minds do not come any weaker than theirs. But that's what happens when your hobby is headbutting each other.
- Hidden Depths: Although they appear to be your average Dumb Muscle (which they are), they're surprisingly eloquent and opinionated on issues that are near and dear to their hearts. Like food. And the status of their work environment.
- Inexplicably Identical Individuals: Although none of the main characters seems to have any difficulty telling them apart. In case you were wondering, Baash's sleeves are tan while Raam's sleeves are green.
- Old Retainer: All-Stars reveals that they were in Graballa's employ before the events of Solo — and that they're still working for him during the time of the Sequel Trilogy, thirty years after the events of The Freemaker Adventures.
- Punny Name: Take one A out of each of their names to get the names of their favorite hobbies. (It's also how their names are pronounced.) Unfortunately, the pun only pays off once in the series.(Baash and Raam are chasing the Freemakers' podracer in their speeder bikes)
Baash: Raam, you bash!
Raam: And Baash, you ram!
- Skewed Priorities: These geniuses put off escaping from a Cloud City jail to argue with each other about who's afraid of heights. Dengar has to resort to shooting at them with his getaway cloud car to get them to focus. And then they go right back to arguing as soon as they're on board.
- Spanner in the Works: After Zander messes up Kordi's "airtight plan" to purchase an antique starship by bidding for (and winning) a different ship, these guys mess it up even worse by purchasing the ship themselves on Graballa's behalf — by waving a Mygeeto burrito around at the wrong time.
- Those Two Bad Guys: Although they never quite get around to doing anything bad (not for lack of effort, mind you).
A bounty hunter employed by Graballa the Hutt. He's generally regarded as not being as good as Boba Fett.
For more on him outside of the show, see his canonical entry on the Bounty Hunters and Mercenaries: Republic Era page.
Jabba the Hutt and Associates
Jabba Desilijic Tiure
One of the most powerful gangsters in the galaxy, Jabba rules his crime family from his homeworld of Tatooine and has no patience for the antics of his cousin Graballa.
For more on him outside of the show, see his canonical entry on The Hutt Clan page.
Jabba's Twi'lek majordomo.
For more on him outside of the show, see his canonical entry on The Hutt Clan page.
Species: Human (clone)
A Mandalorian bounty hunter often employed by Jabba the Hutt, widely regarded as the best in the business.
For more on him outside of the show, see his canonical entry here.
The owner and bartender of a cantina in a castle on Takodana.
For more on her outside of the show, see her canonical entry on the Criminals page.
An old pirate hanging around at Maz's Castle, trying to rebuild his criminal empire.
For more on him outside of the show, see his canonical entry on The Ohnaka Gang page.
An ancient Jedi Master who forged the Kyber Saber.
- Dismantled Macguffin: After smashing the Kyber Saber, he entrusted the pieces to Jedi Knights to hide all around the galaxy. It's possible that he was aware of the Saber's extreme durability and decided that scattering its pieces was a safer method of disposal rather than attempting to destroy it.
- My God, What Have I Done?: The expression on his face says it all after he accidentally destroys a moon with his new Kyber Saber, prompting him to shatter the weapon just minutes after constructing it.
- Posthumous Character: He's long gone by the present day.
- Small Role, Big Impact: As the creator — and destroyer — of the Kyber Saber.
- Suddenly Voiced: After a non-speaking appearance in the series premiere, he makes a surprise reappearance halfway through Season Two via a holocron recording to instruct (and warn) viewers on Force building using kyber crystals.
- Super Prototype: According to Naare, the Kyber Saber was the first lightsaber. It's also several orders of magnitude stronger than any lightsaber, being able to emit energy beams that can cleave multiple mountains in a single shot and even effortlessly slice through Imperial Star Destroyers — lengthwise!
The Freemakers' landlord, who often hounds them for overdue rent.
- The Cameo: As nearly all of Season Two takes place off of the Wheel, he's absent for nearly all of it...except for the episode when the Freemakers pay a return visit to their old shop, where he serves as a Spanner in the Works during his brief appearance (see that entry for details).
- Demoted to Extra: Well, he was already essentially an extra in Season One, but as mentioned in The Cameo above, the Freemakers' departure from the Wheel in Season Two means that he's absent for almost the entire season.
- Drop-In Landlord: A holographic version. He's probably the most frequently Recurring Extra in Season One due to his incessant nagging about the rent.
- Establishing Character Moment: Right at the beginning of the series premiere, he politely greets the Freemakers right before threatening to throw them out the airlock for being late with their rent payments.
- Faux Affably Evil: Speaks in a folksy drawl and generally has a pleasant, friendly tone of voice...until he threatens to throw the Freemakers out the airlock for failing to pay the rent.
- Recurring Extra: In Season One.
- Running Gag: Regularly reminds the Freemakers that they owe him rent. Oftentimes, that's his only appearance in that episode.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Beats a hasty retreat from the Freemakers' shop when the Naare-Graballa posse invade it searching for Rowan. This effectively serves as his exit from the series, although he makes an important cameo appearance in Season Two.
- Spanner in the Works: In Season Two, while he appears to have been duped by the Freemakers' Paper-Thin Disguises, it turns out that he saw through them — and he alerts Graballa the Hutt of the Freemakers' presence on the Wheel, kicking off the plot of the second half of the episode. This also indirectly leads to the Rebel Alliance learning of the existence of the second Death Star.
- Weak-Willed: Naare subjects him to a Jedi Mind Trick at the end of the series premiere to get him off the Freemakers' backs and to convince him to rent her living quarters for a single credit. Unfortunately, the Freemakers' rent comes due again...
- Would Hurt a Child: As mentioned above, he often threatens to throw the Freemakers out the airlock for failing to pay the rent, and he has no qualms about making those threats when the twelve-year-old Rowan is present.
A wealthy and stuck-up businessman who lives in the high-class Upper Ring of the Wheel and owns a variety of exotic starships and vehicles, which he sometimes takes to the Freemakers for repairs and maintenance.
- Aerith and Bob: "Cooper" is a fairly common English surname.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He's a rude and obnoxious Upper-Class Twit who genuinely supports Emperor Palpatine, but he's also a very savvy businessman who converts the Freemakers' struggling shop into a highly successful cafe, much to Kordi's grudging admiration.
- The Cameo: Most of his appearances are either cameos or extended cameos.
- He appears outside the Palpatine Museum in episode 9, elbowing his way to the front of the line and requesting the super-deluxe VIP tour...or whatever's better than that, if it exists.
- In the first Season Finale, he's on Coruscant during Empire Day and thus is put into peril by Naare's rampage, only escaping death via a Big Damn Heroes moment by the Freemakers.
- In Season Two, he attends the luxury ship auction on Mygeeto and can be heard disparaging people who "choose to be poor."
- Later, when the Freemakers visit the Wheel, they discover that he's converted their old shop into a lucrative cafe.
- Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like: A variant in the first Season Finale. Saved by the Freemakers from falling to his death, Wick emerges from some rubble in the StarScavenger's cargo hold and woozily asks if he's in the afterlife...because, if so, he's quite underwhelmed.
- Contrived Coincidence: While attempting to hide from Stormtroopers patrolling the Upper Rim of the Wheel, Kordi and Princess Leia literally fall into an apartment that happens to be the residence to Wick Cooper, who had dropped off a speeder bike at Freemaker Salvage and Repair shortly beforehand.
- Horrible Judge of Character: Genuinely and unironically supports Emperor Palpatine. Yeah.
- Jerkass: Apparently brings a luxury speeder bike to Freemaker Salvage and Repair for the sole purpose of hurling verbal abuse at Zander when he checks it out. In fairness to Wick, Zander was directly responsible for the total destruction of his mint-condition Naboo Starfighter (and the ship that he received in recompense spontaneously combusted almost immediately), but his vindictiveness is almost cartoonishly petty. To wit:Kordi Freemaker: Anything else?
Wick Cooper: Well, yeah. If you could collect his tears in a jar, that'd be spiffy.
- Lightbulb Joke: Cracks an incredibly insensitive joke referencing the destruction of Alderaan. In front of Princess Leia. Needless to say, getting literally kicked out of his own apartment was getting off easy.
- Too Dumb to Live: Being a supporter of Emperor Palpatine makes you this by default, but Wick takes this Up to Eleven by loudly proclaiming his Undying Loyalty to the Emperor to Naare, who is wielding the Kyber Saber and is almost literally holding his life in her hands at that point. Surprisingly, he survives the experience.
- Undying Loyalty: To Emperor Palpatine of all people, proudly proclaiming himself to be "Palpatine's #1 fan" and even yelling his support of the Emperor to a rampaging, Kyber Saber-wielding Naare.
- Upper-Class Twit: He's wealthy enough to be able to afford living space in the Wheel's Upper Ring (reserved for "the rich, the super-rich, and the Empire"), but he's incredibly rude and seems to genuinely support Emperor Palpatine.
A wealthy and rather stuffy Twi'lek who hires the Freemakers to procure a panel of wroshyr wood for his starship.
- Aerith and Bob: "Ignacio" is a common Spanish name.
- British Stuffiness: Sports a spiffy accent and the stereotypical haughtiness. Notably, he also sports a thin mustache, whereas there's no indication in any canonical material that Twi'leks grow facial hair (or hair, period).
- The Cameo: Attends the luxury ship auction on Mygeeto in Season Two and can be heard complaining about the quality of the ordeurs.
- Quest Giver: His only real function in the story is to send the Freemakers to Kashyyyk for a piece of wroshyr wood in his debut episode (and to refuse to pay them for their trouble when the piece that they deliver turns out to be broken).
- Spell My Name with an "S": Downplayed since he appears in a grand total of two episodes (one of which is a cameo)) and his name is only spelled in the credits, but the vowels in his surname are flipped in those episode credits.
Species: Human (clone)
After the events of The Yoda Chronicles, Jek-14 went into isolation on Zoh, refusing to be involved in any more conflicts regarding the light side of the Force versus the dark side of the Force.
- Character Title: "The Maker of Zoh" episode.
- Never Found the Body: The Freemakers are led to assume his droids killed him, but the ending of the episode shows a Finger-Twitching Revival (or hand twitching revival, considering this is Lego.).
- Unexpected Character: Considering the show was slated as a "canon paraphrase", Jek-14, who originated from the Lego parody series of Star Wars, was unexpected. This also brings in some questions as to how exactly The Yoda Chronicles fits in with the new Expanded Universe.
- The War to End All Wars: Jek lampshades that every conflict claims that theirs will be "the battle to end all battles", only for another to follow and say the same thing, then another, then another. He recognizes that it would be futile to try to satiate the bloodlust, so he went into isolation so that he wouldn't be dragged into more fights.
The Maker's Droids
Models: Various, including EV-series medical droid (N3-RO), battle droids, super battle droids, dwarf spider droids, IG-series droids, mouse droids, R5-series astromech droids
Droids rebuilt by Jek-14 after their parts were abandoned as junk on Zoh.
- Meaningful Name:
- My God, What Have I Done?: BL-0X and the other droids feel bad for following N3-RO, as their uprising led to the supposed death of the Maker, who was the only one who cared about them.
- Now What?: After the Maker was supposedly killed, the droids feel like they have no purpose.
- Restraining Bolt: BL-0X puts one on N3-RO so that he'll never do anything bad again.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: N3-RO gathered the droids to rise up against the Freemakers because he didn't want the Maker to leave them like their previous owners did.
LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars
A Corellian mechanic and Clone Wars starship enthusiast who first found Roger. He is the husband of Lena and the father of Zander, Kordi, and Rowan.
- Action Dad: Manages to save himself and his family (including two young children) from a rampaging Zillo Beast. It's all the more impressive considering that he's decidedly a Non-Action Guy who's an Action Survivor at most.
- Berserk Button: Han Solo, ever since his scheme cost Pace his dreams. They eventually make up.
- Crazy Jealous Guy: Has shades of this when he glares at Lando for kissing Lena's hand.
- Deadpan Snarker: Has his moments.Lena (to Pace): Wait, you're the guy that Hutt wanted? You don't seem the type.
Pace: Well, you kinda do!
- Disappeared Dad: His absence from The Freemaker Adventures has yet to be explained.
- Eye Twitch: His eye twitches when he gets mad.
- Famed in Story: He was the one to first coin the term "Uglies" for ships made from different models of ships.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Chronologically the first one in the series, as he assembles parts of different starships into a working ship complete with functional hyperdrive. While under threat from hungry rancors!
- Earliernote , he's the one who repairs the old Trade Federation droid control ship's computer to reactivate some of the inert battle droids in the area to serve as a distraction for the Zillo Beast that's menacing the heroes.
- Guile Hero: Grows into this over the course of his adventures, coming up with the plan to shake some pursuers by jettisoning a load of extremely hard Corusca gems at their ships at high speeds.
- Happily Married: To Lena.
- Honor Before Reason: When Lando appears to be selling out Pace and Lena to their pursuers, Lena attempts to convince Pace to hightail it, but Pace refuses to abandon Lando and even cites personal integrity as his reason to stay. Not only does this work out, but it even causes Lena to fall for him!
- Insult Friendly Fire: Upon meeting Han again, he screams that the smuggler "ruined my life!" — only to hastily amend his words when he sees his beloved Lena giving him a funny look, since Han's interference resulted in him meeting her.
- Like Parent, Like Child: Like Zander, he has a thing for making Uglies, although he has less pride in it...until a woman comes along and buys one, boosting his confidence to make a business making and selling Uglies.
- Non-Action Guy: Never shoots any weapon or participates in high-speed chases (although he sometimes gets dragged along in them, much to his own chagrin). He eventually becomes a Guile Hero, although only when absolutely necessary.
- The Reliable One: He is always willing to help someone in need, even against his better judgment.
A former street swindler from the Ring of Kafrene. She is Pace's wife and the mother of Zander, Kordi and Rowan.
- Ambiguously Brown: Obviously, the Freemaker children got their looks from her.
- Con Woman: Her profession when we first meet her. Her daughter Kordi almost certainly got her silver tongue from her.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: She's much more polite than your average Ice Queen and has good reason to be one, but regardless, it's Pace's unwavering honesty that causes her to warm up toward him.
- Everyone Has Standards: When a stormtrooper's wife blackmails a man into selling her an expensive necklace for a single credit Lena robs the woman of both her money and the necklace, which she returns to the salesman.
- Happily Married: To Pace.
- Horrible Judge of Character: She had a Kowakian monkey-lizard partner-in-crime named Radka until he stole all of their earnings and ratted her out to stormtroopers.
- I Work Alone: Being betrayed by her partner-in-crime sours her on the notion of partnering with others, causing her to attempt to leave Pace as soon as the immediate danger is over. Fortunately, Pace's stubborn honesty wins her over, and after the next immediate danger is over, she's the one who's asking Pace if he wants a partner.
- In the Hood: Often uses her shirt's hood when she wishes to remain anonymous.
- Pink Means Feminine: Wears a pink hooded shirt.
- Missing Mom: Her absence has yet to be explained.
- Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Although she's the one who suggests to Pace that they abandon Lando when the going gets rough, you can practically hear her defrosting when he refuses to leave his partner.Pace: It's not about who he is, it's about who we are! We made a deal. We're partners. We can't abandon him.
Lena (practically swooning): An...honest partner...?
- You Have Out Lived Your Usefulness: Her first partner Radka turned Lena in to the stormtroopers after stealing all of her earnings.
