Lothal orphan Ezra Bridger
witnesses a battle in the skies overhead between the
starship Ghost and a TIE fighter of the
Galactic Empire. After the TIE fighter is shot down and
crashes to the ground, Bridger rushes to the wrecked
ship and finds that its cockpit hatch will not open,
leaving the TIE fighter's pilot trapped inside. Bridger
eventually opens the hatch, but the TIE fighter pilot
shows no gratitude for being saved and instead angrily
rebukes Bridger for touching his ship.
To teach the
arrogant pilot a lesson, Bridger steals several
components from the TIE fighter, including the pilot's
flight helmet. Angered further, the pilot opens fire on
Bridger with the TIE fighter's laser cannons, but
Bridger incapacitates the pilot with his energy
slingshot. The pilot's helmet now belongs to Bridger.
