Kordi Freemaker was a member of the Freemakers, a family of scavengers that traveled the galaxy. She was the middle sister of Zander and Rowan Freemaker and was considered to be the leader of the family's operation. The Freemakers also had a B1 battle droid named R0-GR, who was both a butler and a member of the Freemakers household. The Freemakers operated from a garage based at The Wheel space station in the Abrion system. During the Galactic Civil War, the Freemakers made a living by repairing starships and salvaging parts from wrecked starships and vehicles. Kordi and her family struggled to make a living and to pay rent to their landlord Furlac.
Following a salvage trip to Nal Kapok, Kordi were drawn into a quest to find the seven pieces of the Kyber Saber, a powerful lightsaber capable of destroying the galaxy. Her younger brother Rowan learned that he was Force-sensitive and became an apprentice of the Jedi Purge survivor Naare, who wanted to reforge the Kyber Saber. In secret, Naare was a Sith agent in the service of Darth Sidious and Darth Vader. Kordi was protective of her younger brother and wanted to protect Rowan from harm's way.
While undertaking various salvage jobs, Kordi and her family were drawn into several adventures to obtain funds. In the process, they uncovered more Kyber Saber crystals. After Naare revealed her true Sith identity, the Freemakers resolved to find the remaining Kyber Saber crystals before Naare could reach them. Despite their efforts, Naare managed to track them down and steal the crystals due to Roger's reactivated transmission pack. The Freemakers managed to prevent Naare from taking the seventh crystal on Hoth but Rowan and Roger separated from the team in order to protect them from Naare.
Unable to find Rowan and Roger, Kordi and Zander returned to the Wheel only to be trapped by Naare and the Hutt crime lord Graballa, who was after the crystals and had formed an alliance with Naare. Naare managed to lure Rowan back and reforge the Kyber Saber; setting the stage for a showdown on Coruscant. After stealing the Kyber Saber from Naare and the Empire and destroying it, the Freemakers joined the Rebel Alliance.
Kordi Freemaker was a female Human who lived during the time of the Galactic Civil War. She was the middle child in the Freemakers, a family of scavengers. She had an older brother named Zander and a younger brother named Rowan. The Freemakers were assisted by a B1 battle droid named Roger, who worked as their servant but was also an informal member of the Freemaker family. Together, the Freemakers operated a garage called the Freemaker Salvage and Repair at a space station called The Wheel in the Abrion system. They also owned a starship called the StarScavenger, which they used on salvage operations.
Salvaging on Nal KapokEdit
Following the Battle of Hoth, Kordi and her brothers were scavenging wreckage that had been left over from a space battle between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance. After Rowan drew the attention of the Imperial and Rebel starfighters by blowing up a Gozanti-class cruiser, the Freemakers returned to the Freemaker Garage. After arriving, they were accosted by their Aqualish landlord Furlac, who reminded them that they were overdue on their rent payments. They were also greeted by Roger, who had been baking cookies.
Kordi helped Zander to cobble up a starship from parts they had salvaged during the dogfight. However, Rowan accidentally destroyed the ship by triggering the laser cannons from the head of an AT-ST walker. When Kordi proposed that Zander sell his Z-wings (which she called "Uglies"), he refused and instead suggested doing a salvage run on a Clone Wars battlefield. As a result, Kordi and the other Freemakers including Roger traveled to the jungle world of Nal Kapok in order to obtain salvage and make a quick buck. Nal Kapok had been a battlefield during the Clone Wars and was still littered with wreckage from that conflict. After leaving Roger to babysit Rowan on the StarScavenger, Kordi and Zander attempted to remove an engine from an Imperial transport, which they mistakenly assumed was derelict.
They were soon captured by Imperial stormtroopers, who were unhappy with their intrusion. Kordi attempted to convince the stormtroopers to release them by claiming they were Imperial inspectors. However, the stormtroopers arrested them and brought them inside the transport for interrogation. The Imperial officer wanted to ship them to the spice mines of Kessel as punishment. At that point, they were rescued by Rowan, who had commandeered a vintage AT-TE walker. Rowan managed to drive off the Imperials with the help of a Jedi woman named Naare.
The Freemakers befriended Naare and took her back to the Freemaker Garage. Naare then told Kordi that she intended to take Rowan as her apprentice after noticing his "amazing ability" to sense kyber crystals. Naare also claimed that she was on a quest to find the pieces of the legendary Kyber Saber so that she could defeat the Empire. Kordi was initially reluctant to let Naare train her brother and thought that Naare was filling his mind with stories. However, Naare managed to win Kordi's trust by talking about restoring peace to the galaxy. Unknown to the Freemakers, Naare was a secret Sith agent who was working for Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader to find the Kyber Saber. The Emperor hoped to utilize the ancient artifact for himself.
Trouble with GraballaEdit
Following the adventures on Nal Kapok, Kordi caught Naare and Rowan trying to sneak away on a quest to find the second Kyber Saber crystal in the Balgaroth asteroid field. Kordi criticized Naare for filling her brother's head with "nonsense" and putting his life in danger. Naare responded that the fate of the galaxy depended on finding the Kyber Saber crystals. Naare then attempted to play a mind trick on Kordi but Kordi proved resistant. When Kordi realized that Naare was trying to manipulate her, an argument broke out. While the adults argued, Rowan and Roger sneaked away on one of Zander's Z-wings to find the kyber crystal.
After the Freemakers and Naare realized that Rowan had taken the StarScavenger, Kordi and Zander traveled to the Balgaroth field on the StarScavenger while Naare traveled in her Eclipse Fighter. Meanwhile, Rowan and Roger found the second Kyber Saber crystal but were captured by the Hutt crime lord Graballa, who desired the crystals for himself. The Freemakers and Naare arrived at Graballa's ship Rancor's Fist just as Graballa was about to feed Rowan and Roger to his nexu Smiley.
Posing as salespeople, Kordi and Zander attempted to convince the Hutt crimelord to buy a hastily cobbled-up Z-wing. However, Graballa was not interested and saw Rowan, Roger, and Naare attempting to sneak away. Following a brief struggle, the Freemakers and Naare escaped in the Z-wing. In the process, the kyber crystal was lost in the vacuum of space. Graballa's henchmen pursued the Freemaker in their starfighters but Naare used the Force to clear a path through the asteroid field and to destroy most of the pursuers. This display of Force power impressed Kordi, who had been suspicious of the "Jedi."
After returning to the StarScavenger, Rowan apologized for his actions. While Zander was annoyed with Rowan, Kordi defended her younger brother and remarked that it was worth the trouble rescuing him. When Rowan suddenly sensed the second kyber saber crystal, Kordi and Zander reluctantly flew the ship towards the crystal. Together, Kordi, the other Freemakers, and Naare celebrated their triumph. However, Rowan's actions attracted the attention of Graballa, who wanted to use the crystals to fund a beachside resort.
Later, the Freemakers received a job from fellow Wheel resident Wick Cooper to service his vintage N-1 starfighter. Knowing Zander's poor impulse control around starships, Kordi gave Rowan and Roger strict instructions to keep Zander distracted. Despite Rowan's best efforts, Zander was able to smell the starfighter's chromium. Meanwhile, Kordi attended to Cooper who made a list of excessive demands and questioned the competence of the Freemakers. After hearing Zander and Rowan fighting, Kordi rushed into the Freemaker Garage to sort out her brothers. She warned Zander not to alienate Cooper because he had been their latest customer in a long time. Despite Kordi's efforts to warn Zander not to touch the N-1 starfighter, Zander took advantage of his sister's momentary distraction to take the starfighter for a joyride.
Kordi expressed frustration towards Rowan for not stopping Zander. When Cooper entered the garage, Kordi and Rowan claimed that the ship was "in the back." Kordi and Rowan then led Cooper back to the reception and attempted to flatter him by offering to extra work on his starfighter. While Rowan and Roger pretended to repair the N-1 starfighter by banging equipment, Kordi tried to reassure Cooper that his ship was being repaired but prevented him from entering the garage to inspect the work for himself. Later, Kordi and Rowan received a hologram call from Zander that he had been arrested by the Empire for "interfering" with Imperial business. Zander was detained aboard the Imperial Star Destroyer Vendetta.
While Roger entertained Cooper, Kordi and Rowan embarked on a mission to rescue Zander. After ruling out hiring bounty hunters, Kordi and Rowan managed to convince a reluctant Naare to help them rescue Zander. Kordi and Rowan traveled to the Vendetta aboard a modified Class-D cargo container fitted with TIE solar panels while Naare traveled on her own ship, the Eclipse Fighter. Despite a faulty transponder, Kordi and Rowan managed to gain permission to land in the Star Destroyer's hangar after Rowan repaired it. After entering a corridor, Kordi and Rowan encountered two stormtroopers. Fortunately for them, Naare came to their rescue by slicing open the floor and knocking out the stormtroopers. While Kordi was suspicious of Naare's explanation that she had used a mind trick to gain admission, the three proceeded to the brig to rescue Zander from his cell.
After evading two Imperial officers, Kordi and her companions managed to free Zander from his cell. Traveling back to the hangar bay, the Freemakers and Naare were cornered by Darth Vader and his stormtroopers. Naare slipped out the garbage chute; leaving Kordi and her brothers alone to confront Vader. The Freemakers tried to convince Vader that they were not spies but ship repair personnel. However, the Sith Lord did not believe them until Zander confessed that he had taken an N-1 starfighter out for a joyride. Darth Vader then took the N-1 starfighter out for a joy ride only to be pursued by TIE fighters. While Vader fought with his own TIE fighters, Kordi confronted Zander over his actions.
In the end, Rowan managed to retrieve the N-1 starfighter by using his comlink to summon the Tractor beam. While Vader was distracted by his stormtroopers, the Freemakers and Naare took the opportunity to return in their starships to the Freemaker Garage. Back at the Wheel, the Freemakers were confronted by a furious Cooper who was enraged that his antique starfighter had been wrecked by Zander's joyriding. As compensation, Kordi offered up Zander's other ships to Cooper. Cooper settled for Zander's prized Blazemaker prototype but the craft blew up due to faulty fusion tubes. Cooper survived the crash and threatened to sue the Freemakers.
Calrissian's Lost TreasureEdit
Following the incident with Cooper's N-1 starfighter, the Freemakers began experiencing financial difficulties. While searching for loose Credits, a frustrated Kordi toyed with the idea of selling Roger; prompting an alarmed gasp from the battle droid. Later, Kordi expressed annoyance after she learnt that Rowan had found them a job recovering the rebel and former entrepreneur Lando Calrissian's "lost treasure" from Cloud City, which was presently under Imperial occupation. However, she relented due to the family's dire financial straits.
Kordi and her brothers managed to bluff their way into Cloud City by posing as repair mechanics attending to the damaged Carbon-freeze chamber. While Rowan and Zander headed to the chamber, Kordi infiltrated Calrissian's disco pad. There, she found the "lost treasure" in a brief case stowed inside a safety deposit box behind a portrait of Calrissian. When two stormtroopers entered the room, Kordi tried to hide under the bed but was covered. She managed to bluff her way out by posing as a servant checking for itch mites.
Kordi managed to rejoin her brothers in the carbon-freeze chamber only to encounter Naare and Graballa' s bounty hunters Dengar, Baash, and Raam. A struggle ensued and the bounty hunters headed off with Rowan's carbon-frozen body. Unable to stop the gangsters from escaping, the Freemakers and Naare headed to the engine room where Zander used Naare's lightsaber to sever the cable linked to the repulsorlift generator. Zander's action prevented Dengar and his associates from escaping but caused the city to plunge into the depths of Bespin. Amidst the chaos, they managed to recover Calrissian's "lost treasure" and Rowan.
After defrosting Rowan, Rowan managed to repair the repulsorlift cable; restoring Cloud City to its normal floating position. The Freemakers and Naare then returned to the Wheel where they handed the treasure back to Calrissian; who rewarded them with bars of gold. The treasure was revealed to be Calrissian's blue cape.
Mission to KashyyykEdit
Later, the Freemakers began experiencing financial difficulties again. Overdue on their rent payments, Kordi reluctantly accepted a job from the Twi'lek captain Ignacio Wortan to obtain a piece of wroshyr wood from the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk to make a new headset. Unable to speak Shyriiwook and to afford a translator droid, Kordi fitted Roger with a translation chip despite Rowan's offer to translate. Kordi and her brothers managed to travel past the Imperial blockade around Kashyyyk in the StarScavenger, which was modified to resemble an Imperial shuttle.
Upon landing, the Freemakers and Roger were accosted by a band of Wookiees led by Chief Attabura. Speaking Shyriiwook, Rowan managed to convince the Wookiees that they were friendly and that they only wanted a piece of wroshyr wood. Attabura gave the Freemakers the wood but sent them on a mission to rescue his son Tantarra from a Trandoshan island fortress. When Kordi and Zander tried to walk out of the deal, Rowan and Roger explained that turning down the mission would be dishonorable in Wookiee culture. The Freemakers reluctantly embarked on the rescue mission.
While Roger stayed behind with the ship, Kordi and her brothers traveled on speeder bikes to the Trandoshans fortress. They managed to infiltrate the fortress by using an improvised catapult. The Freemakers then managed to convince the guards they were repair crew. The Freemakers managed to free Tantarra from his cell and then headed to the top of a tower to await pick-up from Roger. However, the Imperial officers Durpin and Plumestriker arrived to get their Trandoshans allies to deal with the intruders and sounded the alarm. When the StarScavenger arrived, Zander fired a flare gun which gave the Wookiees the signal to attack the Trandoshans fortress.
Before they could leave with Roger, Rowan suddenly sensed the third Kyber Saber crystal within the fortress. The Freemakers and Tantarra ventured inside a chamber where they retrieved the crystal from a Trandoshans statue. After reuniting Tantarra with his father, Kordi and her brothers headed back to the StarScavenger. On the way, Kordi tripped on a branch and was held up. Meanwhile, her brothers and Rowan were cornered by Durpin and Plumestriker who tried to capture them. Kordi knocked them out with the wroshyr wood panel but damaged the object. Kordi considered venturing back to the fortress to get another but decided not to after she saw an explosion.
Upon returning to the Wheel, Kordi presented the damaged wroshyr wood to Ignacio. However, the captain saw that it was damaged and called off the deal. Kordi was deeply upset that she had failed to secure money for their bills. Zander comforted and embraced his younger sister.
Helping the RebellionEdit
Later, Kordi and her brothers received a new job from Wick Cooper to service his speeder bike. Shortly later, the Freemakers were visited by Princess Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker, who were members of the Rebel Alliance. Their Y-wing starfighter had been damaged during a dogfight with TIE fighters. Low on funds and well behind on their rent, Kordi coaxed an offer from Leia to pay five times the price of their Y-wing.
Luke and Leia's presence eventually attracted the attention of the Imperial officer Estoc. Meanwhile, Roger accidentally took Luke and Rowan on a joyride aboard the StarScavenger. When Estoc searched the Freemaker Garage, Kordi and Zander hid Leia in an incinerator. After Estoc left the scene, the Freemakers managed to pull Leia out of the incinerator before she could be crushed with the rubbish. Leia and the Freemakers were then spotted by Estoc and her stormtroopers, who gave chase.
Kordi and Leia fled up the turbolift to the Upper Ring, the upmarket part of the Wheel. After devouring a tray of appetizers, Kordi and Leia fled into Mr Cooper's penthouse. Kordi used a plant pot to pose as a cleaning droid. The two then proceeded to clean Cooper's house while hiding from Estoc and her stormtroopers. When Cooper made a joke about the destruction of Alderaan, Leia assaulted him; inadvertently blowing her cover. When the real cleaning droids arrived, Cooper alerted the Imperials; forcing Kordi and Leia to flee.
The two women fled into a diner where Leia saved Kordi from being arrested by Estoc and her stormtroopers. The two were then picked up by Zander on Cooper's speeder bike and fled back to the Freemaker Garage. The Freemakers then managed to lay the Imperials off Leia's trail by sending her Y-wing into space. The decoy Y-wing was promptly destroyed by the Imperials, who believed that Leia and Luke were dead. Kordi and Zander managed to convince Estoc that the rebels had coerced them into helping them.
Shortly later, Luke returned with Rowan and Roger aboard the StarScavenger. With their Y-wing destroyed, Kordi and Zander allowed Luke and Leia to purchase one of their Z-wings at a low price in the name of helping the rebellion. The Freemakers' encounters with Leia and Luke made them more sympathetic to the rebellion.
Trap on TatooineEdit
Following Kordi and Zander's encounter with Luke and Leia, Kordi accompanied her brothers and Roger on a trip to Tatooine. Zander had received a job offer from the podracer pilot Ben Quadinaros, who was participating in the 29th Annual Bricklayers' Classic race in Mos Espa. Kordi was enthusiastic about this offer since the Freemakers were short on Credits. Before leaving, Kordi also reprimanded her younger brother Rowan for neglecting to look after astromech droid parts.
On Mos Espa, the Freemakers began servicing Ben's podracer; with Kordi finding the heat intolerable. Shortly later, the Freemakers discovered that their job offer had been a ruse by Graballa to lure them into a trap. Graballa wanted Rowan in order to find the remaining Kyber Saber crystals. BeforFlighe Graballa could deal with the Freemakers, he was distracted by his cousin Jabba. With Graballa momentarily preoccupied, the Freemakers took their chance to escape on a podracer. Graballa sent his henchmen Dengar, Baash, and Raam after the fugitives but the Freemakers managed to lose their pursuers. Despite the odds, the Freemakers also won the 29th Annual Bricklayers' Classic race.
After winning the race, the Freemakers fled on their podracer into the Dune Sea. Pursued by Graballa and his henchmen, Kordi and her family sought refuge inside a derelict sandcrawler. Kordi and Zander managed to contact Naare despite Rowan's protests. The Freemakers managed to hold off Graballa and his henchmen with a box of thermal detonators long enough for Naare to arrive on the Eclipse Fighter. Naare managed to fight the gangsters and rescue Rowan. However, Kordi, Zander, and Roger were captured by the gangsters. Using her Force powers and lightsaber skills, Naare freed Kordi and the other Freemakers and drove the gangsters away. The Freemakers then traveled back with Naare to the Wheel. However, Rowan uncovered compelling evidence in the form of Naare's Sith lightsaber which proved that she was a Sith agent.
Flight to TakodanaEdit
Rowan revealed the truth about Naare's Sith identity to Kordi and Zander. The Freemakers and Roger made preparations to leave the Freemaker Garage aboard the StarScavenger. When Naare knocked on their door, Roger tried to distract her but the Sith was not fooled. She forced her way into the Garage and had a brief exchange with Rowan. Following a brief struggle, the Freemakers managed to escape in the StarScavenger. Following a brief chase, they managed to lose Naare amidst the space traffic and fled into hyperspace.
With their starship's quantum field regulator damaged, the Freemakers sought refuge at Maz Kanata's castle on the planet Takodana. After landing, Zander found himself in trouble when his shipped accidentally scraped the Weequay pirate Hondo Ohnaka's starship. Before a fight could break out between Zander, Rowan, and Hondo's henchmen, Kordi managed to talk her brothers out of trouble by offering to work for Hondo as compensation. As a collateral, she agreed to leave the StarScavenger. Hondo accepted the deal and sent the Freemakers to collect three golden orbs from the third moon of Takodana. However, Hondo warned them that there was a "catch."
Following an uncomfortable journey aboard their cramped scavenger vessel, the Freemakers reached the sinkhole where the golden orbs were stored. However, Kordi and the others quickly discovered that the sinkhole was guarded by many varactyls. Kordi proposed waiting till nighttime to obtain the golden orbs. She assigned Rowan to act as a "snipe spotter" while Roger was tasked with retrieving the golden orbs. Kordi and Zander flew the scavenger vessel over the sinkhole and lowered Roger inside. Overcome by greed, Kordi then urged Roger to take more than three golden orbs.
However, Roger lost his grip over the golden orbs and stirred the sleeping varactyls. The varactyls ripped Roger apart and proceeded to toss the scavenger vessel with Kordi and Zander in it. Before anymore harm could come to the Freemakers, Rowan intervened and managed to reason with the varactyls. After learning that the golden orbs were actually varactyl eggs, Rowan apologized to the varactyls and made peace with them. The following morning, Kordi reassured her younger brother that he was special. This gave them the courage to confront Hondo and his gang.
The Freemakers returned to Maz Kanata's castle where they confronted Hondo and his gang. Hondo was aware that the golden orbs were varactyl eggs. Annoyed at Rowan for defying him, Hondo ordered his men to break the Freemakers' heads. However, Maz Kanata intervened and expelled Hondo and his gang. Impressed by the Freemakers' nobility, she gave them the quantum regulator for free. In addition, she also gave Rowan the fourth Kyber Saber crystal.
Hunt for the CrystalsEdit
After repairing the StarScavenger, the Freemakers made preparations to leave Takodana. However, they were ambushed by Naare, who had arrived on her Eclipse Fighter with Graballa's starship Rancor's Fist in tow. Naare had forged an alliance with Graballa to capture Rowan in return for half of the Kyber Saber crystals. Naare managed to steal the fourth Kyber Saber crystal. The Freemakers gave chase but were attacked by the Rancor's Fist. With little choice, the Freemakers were forced to flee into hyperspace.
Once in space, the Freemakers discussed their next plans. They decided to prevent Naare from reforging the Kyber Saber by getting to the other crystals first. Rowan knew that the two next crystals were on Naboo and Ningoth. At Zander's insistence, the Freemakers decided to avoid Naboo and instead travel to the ocean world of Ningoth. While Roger stayed behind to guard the StarScavenger, Kordi and her brothers traveled in Zander's submarine, which she christened the Bubbly Snubbly. Underwater, the Freemakers discovered that the fifth Kyber Saber crystal was on the antennae of an Opee sea killer. Rowan managed to trade the crystal for the submarine's lamp.
Before the Freemakers could leave Ningoth, they were ambushed by Naare and Graballa. Using the StarScavenger's chain, they managed to drag Naare's fighter underwater. After breaking lose, they managed to launch the Bubbly Snubbly into the StarScavenger's cargo bay. However, Naare used the Force to snatch the sixth crystal out of Rowan's grasp again. With little choice, the Freemakers decided to continue their hunt for the sixth crystal on Naboo.
On Naboo, Rowan discovered that the sixth Kyber Saber crystal was hidden inside the Theed Royal Palace, which had been revamped as the Emperor Palpatine Museum. The Freemakers decided to break into the Museum at night. Zander smuggled Roger into the Museum disguised as a Clone Wars exhibit while Kordi and the others waited. That night, Roger let them into the Museum. After Roger and Zander were distracted by a battle droid exhibit and an N-1 starfighter, Kordi vowed to focus on the quest but got distracted by the sight of several of the late Padmé Amidala's royal gowns on display. She tried on the former Queen's royal gown and headdress.
After Rowan accidentally toppled Palpatine's statues which triggered a chain reaction that caused Zander's N-1 starfighter to crash into the Theed Hangar. Upon seeing Roger helping Zander out of the starfighter, she asked the two "nerf herders" what they were doing. When Zander and Roger noticed her costume, Kordi defended her right to have fun. At that point, the three were surrounded by Generals Durpin, Plumestriker, and several stormtroopers. After Plumestriker recognized the intruders, the Imperials prepared to execute them.
However, Rowan disguised himself as the Emperor and put a stop to the execution; claiming the intruders were "generous donors." Rowan then found the sixth crystal inside Kordi's headdress. Before they could leave, they were cornered by Naare and the bounty hunter Dengar. A gun battle broke out which ended with Rowan collapsing the N-1 fighter; triggering an explosion that demolished the entire Museum. Kordi and the other Freemakers managed to escape but were forced to leave the crystal behind. Once in space, the Freemakers discussed how Naare had been able to find them only to learn that the Sith had been using Roger's transmission pack as a homing beacon and an eavesdropping device.
Adventure on ZohEdit
Following the events on Naboo, Kordi and Zander removed the transmission pack from Roger. When Rowan proposed finding the Maker of Zoh, Kordi asked her younger brother to explain more. Rowan then explained that Maz Kanata had told him to seek the Maker of Zoh. At the urging of Rowan and Kordi, the Freemakers set a course for Zoh. Upon entering Zoh's atmosphere, Kordi remarked that someone had rearranged piles of junk into beautiful double helix shapes. After landing, the Freemakers were surrounded by several local droids led by N-3RO. Despite Roger's attempts to convince the droids that the organics were friendly, N-3RO designated the Freemakers a threat after learning they had removed Roger's transmission pack.
A scuffle ensued that was only broken up by the arrival of the former Sith clone Jek-14, who identified himself as the Maker of Zoh. He reassured his droids that the Freemakers were friendly and allowed them to collect junk from Zoh. Kordi's utterance of the word "scrap" annoyed N-3RO, who was still convinced that the Freemakers apart from Roger were a threat. Kordi, Zander, and Roger then scavenged for junk but found most of it useless. When Roger accidentally toppled a crescent-shaped structure that almost killed them, Kordi and Zander expressed annoyance with him and told him to return to the ship to "recalibrate the calibrators."
While exploring a hill made out of junk, Kordi and Zander encountered N-3RO's lieutenant BL-OX, who claimed he could he lead them to a place where they could find better scrap. Upon arriving at the site, they were ambushed by N-3RO and his droid followers who took them captive. N-3RO intended to crush them with a crane but was stopped by Rowan and Jek-14, who had finished a lesson. Using his Force powers, Rowan built a flying machine and spirited Kordi and Zander away to safety. However, the machine crashed and Kordi and Zander landed on the scrap heap. The four organics were then taken prisoner by the droids.
N-3RO gave orders to "decommission" the Freemakers and Jek-14, whom he deemed irredeemable. Before he could execute them, Roger appeared and spoke up for his masters. Despite "bad days", he still loved them as family and announced that he was a Freemaker. Roger then reattached his transmission pack, prompting Naare and Graballa to travel to Zoh with their ships. When Naare and Graballa attacked, the Freemakers managed to break free of their bonds. While Kordi thanked Roger for bring more "bad guys", Zander praised the droid for thinking like a Freemaker. At Jek's urging, the Freemakers fled into space. They then traveled to Hoth to find the seventh Kyber Saber crystal with Naare and Graballa hot on their trail.
Race to HothEdit
Kordi and her brothers raced to Hoth on the StarScavenger with Naare and Graballa hot in pursuit. In an attempt to lose their pursuers, the Freemakers flew their ship into a snowstorm. However, Naare was able to see through the Force and fired several shots at the StarScavenger. Using the Force, Rowan managed to guide the ship to safety. Kordi, who was in the gunner's turret, spotted a mountain behind the clouds and managed to alert Zander, who was piloting the ship. The Freemakers manage to avoid flying into the mountain but Naare, Graballa, and Dengar's ships were not so lucky.
After landing, Kordi and her brothers explored a nearby cave network while Roger guarded the ship. They soon encountered a baby wampa that took a liking to Zander. The Freemakers eventually stumbled upon a chamber full of crystals. Using the Force, Rowan found the seventh Kyber Saber crystal. However, the crystal was a keystone that triggered a booby trap system that caused a cave-in. The Freemakers managed to dig themselves out with the help of Rowan's stolen lightsaber. Upon reaching the surface, they discovered that the StarScavenger was trapped under a frozen lake and that Roger's logic processor was frozen, leaving the droid only able to utter "genius."
Together, the Freemakers used two tauntauns to draw a damaged snowspeeder to Echo Base. There, they discovered that the Empire had taken over the base and stationed the disgraced Imperial officers Durpin and Plumestriker to guard it. Durpin attempted to shoot the Freemakers with his blaster but the baby wampa bit him in the leg. Plumestriker fired on the wampa, prompting the mother wampa to attack the two Imperials. Howeve, Plumestriker managed to alert Naare and the Freemakers were forced to prepare for an assault. Using their mechanical skills and Rowan's Force powers, the Freemakers rebuilt an AT-AT walker and the snowspeeder.
During the ensuing skirmish, Kordi and Roger operated the AT-AT walker while Rowan and Zander flew in the snowspeeder. Kordi's walker managed to shoot down Graballa's ship, which crashed and freed the StarScavenger from its tomb. Her brothers managed to down Dengar's ship before being shot down by Naare's starfighter. Kordi then shot down Naare's ship, causing it to crash. However, Naare survived the crash and used her Force powers to summon an avalanche which toppled Kordi's walker. Kordi and her family managed to flee when Naare was run over by Plumestriker, Durpin, and the pursuing wampa. The four Freemakers sought refuge in a cave when Naare issued an ultimatum. She offered to stop pursuing them if they surrender the seventh Kyber crystal.
Despite Kordi and Zander's warnings, Rowan pretended to comply with Naare's offered but switched the real crystal with an ice block. The Freemakers then fled aboard the StarScavenger and escaped into space. Once aboard, they decided not to return to the Wheel but to travel the galaxy as a family. When Kordi suggested Kamino, Zander thought it was too wet. When Zander suggested Tatooine, Kordi replied it was too dry. Both Kordi and Zander demanded that Rowan return after their younger brother left with Roger and the seventh crystal on the Freemaker scavenger vessel. Rowan wanted to prevent Naare from gaining the crystal and did not want any more harm to come to his family.
Return to the WheelEdit
Following the events on Hoth, Kordi and Zander traveled to several worlds including Naboo, Bespin, Kashyyyk, and Tatooine to search for their younger brother Rowan but found no sign of him. After a group of Jawas stole their tools on Tatooine, the brother and sister headed back on their landspeeder to the StarScavenger. Unknown to them, the two Freemakers were being watched by the Kubaz spy Garindan who reported on their movements to Graballa. Upon arriving back at the Freemaker Garage, Kordi and Zander were greeted by their landlord Furlac, who demanded payment for their rent and compensation for damage to their garage door. Shortly later, Naare, Graballa, and his henchmen arrived and trapped Kordi and Zander.
After Furlac fled, Naare and Graballa had Kordi and Zander put into chains. When they refused to cooperate, Naare decided to torture them as a means of drawing Rowan out of hiding. After destroying the StarScavenger's turrets to hurt Zander, Naare burned Kordi's credits before using the Force to disintegrate Zander's starfighters. Naare's plan succeeded and Rowan and Roger arrived back on the scavenger vessel before she could torture them with her lightsaber. After landing, Rowan managed to free Kordi and Zander from their chains by deflecting the bounty hunter Dengar's laser bolts. Kordi and Zander then took part in a gun battle against Graballa's henchmen including Dengar, Baash, and Raam.
Working together, Kordi and Zander managed to trap Baash and Raam under a magnetizer. Kordi was then pursued by Dengar but she turned the tables on him by trapping his bandages in a turbofan. Meanwhile, Rowan, who had grown in his Force powers and lightsaber skills, managed to fight Naare to a standstill. However, the Sith discovered that Roger knew the location of the last Kyber Saber crystal. After stealing Roger's head, Naare used the Force to pin Kordi and Zander down before burying Rowan under a pile of debris. Naare then turned on Graballa and his henchmen and departed with Roger's head on the Eclipse Fighter. After the fighting had ended, Kordi and Zander dug Rowan out of the debris and comforted their younger brother. Rowan was initially despondent but experienced the epiphany that he was neither a Jedi nor Sith but a Freemaker. Together, the Freemakers resolved to defeat Naare once and for all.
Showdown on CoruscantEdit
After Rowan used the Force to repair the Freemaker Garage and the StarScavenger, Kordi and Zander reluctantly agreed to support Rowan's plan to stop Naare by posing as the Emperor. Putting their plan into action, the Freemakers traveled on the StarScavenger to the galactic capital Coruscant. There, they infiltrated the Imperial Palace through the sewers. On the way, she encountered a pair of stormtroopers. Instead of reasoning with them, she decided to chain them up. Meanwhile, Naare rebelled against the Emperor and returned to Coruscant to overthrow him with the reforged Kyber Saber. After infiltrating Rowan into the palace, Kordi and Zander retrieved Roger's head and returned to the StarScavenger.
Zander and Kordi later used the StarScavenger to rescue several spectators including Wick Cooper who had been thrown from a platform by Naare for refusing to recognize her as Empress of the Galaxy. Later, the two siblings picked up their younger brother Rowan from the Imperial Palace after he escaped with the Kyber Saber. The Freemakers then fled on their ship through the sky lanes of Coruscant pursued by Imperial TIE fighters. Kordi and Rowan managed to escape by disguising the StarScavenger while Zander took out several TIEs with his Blazemaker Mark II.
The Freemakers then fled into hyperspace. After Rowan destroyed the Kyber Saber by plunging it into the volcanic world of Mustafar, the Freemakers decided to travel he stars as a family. They were unable to return home to the Wheel because the Empire had designated Rowan as their 27 Most Wanted fugitive. Shortly later, they encountered the Alliance Fleet led by Admiral Ackbar and accepted an offer to join the Rebel Alliance.
Joining the RebellionEdit
Bartering across the galaxyEdit
After receiving Admiral Ackbar's invitation, Kordi and her family were delighted to join the Rebellion. Kordi was motivated by the fact that they would not have to scrounge for credits anymore. They flew the StarScavenger into the MC80 star cruiser Home One's hangar bay where they were greeted by Admiral Ackbar. After exchanging pleasantries, Kordi informed the Admiral that they were scavengers. With the rebel pilot Lieutenant Valeria needing a new Type A vector coil for her U-wing starfighter, Ackbar offered to hire the rebels if they could fetch a new vector coil.
Kordi accepted the offer and brought an ignition switch along. She and her family traveled to several worlds including Bespin, Takodana, Kashyyyk, and Tatooine. During those trips, Kordi bartered the ignition switch for several objects including a comlink degausser, an ion projector, a Type Two power cell, and a repulsor disc. On Tatooine, Kordi managed to barter their repulsor disc for a Type A vector coil with a band of Jawas. After rescuing her brothers and Roger from a sarlacc, the Freemakers returned to Home One where Kordi attached the vector coil to Lieutenant Valeria's ship. A grateful Admiral Ackar then agreed to hire them.
Roger, the unlikely heroEdit
After Roger was beaten by the other rebel droids after accidentally serving them motor oil, Kordi comforted Roger and repaired his arm. When an Imperial Star Destroyer attacked the Home One, Kordi and her siblings helped the rebels by preparing their starfighters for takeoff. Oblivious to the battle, Roger "borrowed" several spareparts including one of the twin engines for a Y-wing that Kordi and Rowan were fixing. Roger ultimately turned the tide of the battle by accidentally catapulting himself into space using his improvised buffer. Kordi and the other Freemakers later attended Roger's award ceremony.
Assault on Strike Station AurekEdit
Prior to Blue Squadron's planned strike on Strike Station Aurek, Kordi and Zander were repairing several of the squadron's starfighters. While baking sweet-sand cookies, Roger bumped into Rowan, who was standing on top of several crates. The crates toppled in a domino effect and damaged the starfighters. Kordi panicked and feared that they would be fired out a torpedo tube into a sun.
While Rowan and Roger repaired the starfighters, Kordi and Zander tried to delay Lieutenant Valeria and her men by pretending to navigate an S-foil through a tight corner. Valeria managed to blast her way through. Kordi and Zander were worried but were mollified to find that Rowan and Roger had repaired the fighters. The Freemakers experienced an unexpected set back when Roger accidentally built himself into Valeria's Y-wing. Rowan was forced to accompany Roger and Valeria's fighter into battle. After they returned unscathed, Kordi remarked that the Force was with Rowan.
Zander's first dogfightEdit
After Lieutenant Valeria turned down Zander's offer to join Blue Squadron on the grounds that his Blazemaker Mark II lacked blasters, Kordi encouraged her brother not to give up. Donning a welding mask, she attached a laser cannon to Zander's starfighter with the help of Rowan. After Zander installed a magma cannon on top of his starfighter, Kordi and Rowan opined that he had gone too far. Though Zander managed to destroy several Imperial starfighters, Kordi and Rowan's concerns were proven right when his magma cannon malfunctioned, destroying the Blazemaker. Fortunately, Zander survived the explosion.
Mission to rescue Lando and ChewbaccaEdit
Later, Kordi and her brothers visited Admiral Ackbar to reassure him they had experienced few accidents. The Freemakers learned that Admiral Ackbar was upset that two of his best rebel agents Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca were trapped behind an Imperial blockade. Without a fuel intermixer, they were stranded. Kordi and her siblings volunteered to rescue the rebel agents. They then traveled on the StarScavenger to the planet where Lando and Chewbacca, were stranded. The planet was blockaded by an Imperial Gozanti-class cruiser.
As part of the plan, the Freemakers allowed their ship to be boarded by the Imperial cruiser, which was commanded by Durpin and Plumestriker. Kordi and her siblings feigned symptoms of Gamorrean flu. Durpin was convinced but Plumestriker saw through their ruse and ordered his men to lock them in the brig and to confiscate their cargo. However, this has been part of the Freemakers' plan all along. Rowan used the Force to summon Roger out of the cargo box and reassemble him. Roger then knocked out the guards and freed the Freemakers from their cell.
Kordi then sent Roger and Zander to start up the StarScavenger. She was present when Rowan used his lightsaber to cut a hole in the cruiser's panel and steal a fuel intermixer. After detaching from the Imperial cruiser, the Freemakers rendezvoused with Lando and Chewbacca on the planet. After fixing the fuel intermixer to the Millennium Falcon, they returned to Home One. There, Lando thanked the Freemakers for helping him again. The Freemakers expressed gratitude to their rebel benefactors. However, Roger informed them that he had left his leg aboard the Imperial cruiser.
Personality and traitsEdit
Kordi was a tomboy who was known to be quick-witted, brave and a tough fighter. She was able to talk her way out of most problems. Kordi often found herself bailing her brothers Zander and Rowan out of trouble. Kordi was annoyed with Zander for his poor impulse control, particularly when he took an antique N-1 starfighter out for a joyride. Kordi also initially disagreed with Rowan embarking on a quest to find the Kyber Saber crystals. However, she came round once she realized the importance of the weapon. Despite their disagreements, Kordi had a deep love for her two brothers and constantly looked out for them. While she and her brothers had a respectful relationship with their battle droid butler Roger, they were sometimes annoyed by his clumsiness and bluntness. Despite these defects, the Freemakers regarded Roger as an integral member of their family.
Kordi was the manager of Freemaker Salvage and Repair, the family's starship repair and salvage business. She was responsible for managing the Freemakers' finances and living expenses. Due to the Freemakers' propensity for landing themselves in trouble, Kordi struggled to pay the Freemakers' rent to their landlord Furlac; who was unhappy with the tardiness of their payments. Kordi also had an eye for potential business opportunities. On one occasion, her family's financial straits led her to embark on a dangerous mission to obtain a piece of wroshyr wood on Kashyyyk. Despite obtaining the wood, Kordi's dreams of resolving the Freemakers' financial foes were thwarted when she used the wooden piece to knock out two Imperial officers.
Kordi also had an uneasy relationship with Wick Cooper, an arrogant customer who patronized the Freemakers in order to save costs. She tolerated Cooper's condescension since he was an important source of income for her family. However, she learned to stand up to him after Leia took Cooper to task for a joke he had made about Alderaan. From the start, Kordi was wary of Naare and thought that the Jedi was filling Rowan's head with nonsense. Kordi briefly respected Naare after she used her Force powers to save them from the Hutt crime lord Graballa. Kordi and her family turned against Naare after discovering that she was a Sith agent seeking to recover the Kyber Saber for the Emperor.
While Kordi liked to talk her way out of trouble, she was not above using force to defend herself. When her brothers were being cornered by the Imperial officers Durpin and Plumestriker, she used a piece of wroshyr-wood to knock them out. Later, she tied up two Imperial stormtroopers during a mission to infiltrate the Imperial Palace on Coruscant. While Naare was often serious and disciplined, she did display some moments of fun and light-heartedness. On one occasion, she devoured an entire tray of appetizers in the Wheel's Upper Ring. Later, Kordi donned the late Queen Amidala's royal gown.
Kordi was resourceful and good at coming up with ideas for the Freemakers. She managed to use her bartering skills to obtain a Type A vector coil for the Rebellion. Kordi was also good at encouraging her family including Roger and Zander when they were down. However, she was also known to panic and fret at times when things went out of control. Fortunately, she could rely on her family to help her out. Kordi was also familiar with Gamorrean flu and came up with a plan to fool the Imperials into thinking they were sick.
Skills and abilitiesEdit
As the manager of the Freemaker Garage, Kordi had some management and administrative skills. While Kordi was primarily a talker, she was also capable of fighting. She also spoke with a clear voice and made a good salesperson. Kordi was also a good negotiator and managed to barter her way to obtaining a Type A vector coil.
Behind the scenesEdit
Kordi Freemaker is voiced by Vanessa Lengies. She serves as one of the four protagonists of the non-Canon Disney XD television series LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, which ran from June 20 to August 29, 2016.
