- “We're fighting for our son's freedom.”
- ―Mira Bridger[src]
Fighting Against the Empire
Mira gave birth to Ezra at the time the Empire came to power and over the next seven years she made underground broadcasts with her husband, speaking out against the Empire. Clearly she was not afraid to stand up for what she and her husband believed in and fought for her son's freedom.
Unfortunately their rebellion would cost them their lives. By the time Ezra was seven, Mira along with her husband were captured and taken away by the Empire, leaving their son to fend for himself.
Several years later, while still in prison, Mira and Ephraim learned that Ezra was part of a rebel cell that fought against the Imperial military on Lothal. He transmitted a message of rebellion to Lothal's citizens, urging them to stand up and fight for their freedom. This message made its way to the prison where the Bridgers were held. Mira and Ephraim, who for years had tried to help their fellow prisoners, knew that the voice was that of their son's because his words mirrored their own from so many years prior. Inspired by what Ezra said, Mira and Ephraim organized a prison break that led to dozens of prisoners, including Azadi, escaping to freedom. The Bridgers, however, were separated during the escape, and they refused to leave until everyone else had escaped. By the time their fellow prisoners were free, Mira and Ephraim had already been killed.
Their son joined the crew to fight back against the Empire in their memory.
During the fifteenth anniversary of Empire Day, Ezra was still depressed that his parents were gone. He went to his tower and took out the key card to their house, when he heard their voices. After the Rebels plan was a success Ezra brought them to his house so they lay low for a while. While there they found Tseebo. A friend of Ephraim and Mira. When Ezra heads down to the basement he reveals to Sabine that his parents underground broadcasts. After they escape to the Ghost Tseebo reveals that he knows what happened to Ephraim and Mira.
Ezra. Who didn't want to know the truth didn't listen. Kanan decided to take Ezra to Fort Anaxes so he can confront his demons about his parents. When the Rebels took Tseebo to Fulcrum for protection, Tseebo tells Hera what happened to Ezra's parents. Hera wan't able to tell Ezra when he returned because Kanan told her that he needed some alone time. Sabine gave Ezra a picture of him and his parents from when he was younger.
While testing Ezra, Yoda asks him why he must be a Jedi. Ezra tells him that he wants to be one to avenge his parents. After Ezra has a vision of the future, it's reveal that Gall Trayvis knew his parents. After Trayvis is revealed to be a spy, he tells Ezra that his parents are gone.
When the Rebels decided to pirate the Empire's signal, Ezra was doubtful of it because of what happened to his parents.
During the final battle with The Inquisitor, Ezra is dropped to a second platform, where he hears his parents calling his name. Ezra soon woke up and watched Kanan battle the Inquisitor.
Personality and traits
She was an outspoken opponent of the Empire's rule of Lothal, leading to her arrest and imprisonment with her husband. Even in prison, however, the Bridgers continued to stand up for other people, up until the point that they were killed in the prison revolt that they led so others could gain their freedom.
