Early Rebellions Edit
Twi'lek Resistance Edit
During the Clone Wars, Cham began his first resistance movement, one against the forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems when their battle droid armies invaded Ryloth. He fought in many battle against the Separatists during the war with the aid of the Galactic Republic's army and would eventually succeed in freeing his planet from the Separatist droids. He did this by, with the aid of Jedi Master Mace Windu and his Clone forces, arrested the Separatist leader, Wat Tambor, and forced Tambor's remaining Separatist forces to leave the planet.
Fighting the Empire Edit
After the end of the Clone Wars, and the rise of the Galactic Empire, Syndulla began fighting against the new faction, especially after Imperial Stormtroopers started to invade the planet. As a result, Cham started the Twi'lek Rebellion, during which, his daughter, Hera Syndulla, left the planet after her mother was killed by Imperial forces.
