Hera Syndulla (portrayed by Vanessa Marshall) is a main character in the upcoming animated television series Star Wars Rebels, set to premiere in summer/fall 2014. Hera, a Twi'lek, is the pilot, owner, and commander of the Ghost, the central ship on the show. She is strong-minded, practical, no-nonsense, and utilitarian, but can also be warm and nurturing. As a result, Hera is the heart and guide of the rebel heroes, and she keeps everyone together when they would otherwise fall apart. She can talk to them and get the best out of them, which is the hallmark of a good commander.
