Background: When Ezra Bridger of the Lothal rebels infiltrated the Academy under the fake name “Dev Morgan,” he and Jai were put in the same cadet squad. The pair developed a friendly rivalry, with Ezra coming first and Jai second in every training session. Their friendship was tested, however, when Ezra turned on Jai and sabotaged him during one lesson, causing Jai to lose one of the top three spots that gave him extra privileges. While Jai saw this as competitive backstabbing, Ezra did it so that his ally, Zare Leonis, would get the spot and be able to help him in his mission for the rebels.
After securing the Imperial decoder that he had been sent to collect, Ezra overheard the school’s director contact the Inquisitor, informing him that both Jai Kell and “Dev Morgan” did well enough in their lessons to indicate that they were likely Force-sensitive; the Inquisitor planned to come by the next day to collect them. Ezra and Zare alerted Jai and convinced him to flee. Jai was both skeptical and reluctant at first but eventually agreed after Zare told him how his sister, Dhara, was likely taken away by the Inquisitor and had not been seen since.
The next day, those who received the best results in their training session were allowed to apprentice aboard an All Terrain Defense Pod; Jai and Zare received the spots and hijacked it, allowing Jai and Ezra to escape. Zare stayed behind to look for more information about his sister, pretending he had tried to stop the others.
The rebels agreed to help Jai and his mother hide from the Empire, though Jai seemed bitter and pessimistic about their chances of succeeding.
