    As we all know in the last episode of Rebels we find out that Hera and Kanan have a son named Jacen Syndulla. So here is a thread to talk and speculate about the little guy himself.

    So we know it's spelled "Jacen" and not "Jason"? Hmm.

    Also...they were busy making a baby, but Kanan doesn't tell Hera he loves her until later? Speaking of which, Jacen here would probably have been able to grow up with his dad if Kanan had prioritized running from the Empire and saved the love confessions for later.

    Yeah I think it was in the credits that way and Star Wars official Twitter confirmed it.

    I'm going with yes.

    I believe someone official said that it was inspired because of Jacen Solo.

    At the moment, from what I've read, it is spelt Jacen.

    There's a WONDERFUL theory (one I subscribe to) that we were 'Filonied' in which Kanan and Hera were actually dancing around the way to tell each other that she was pregnant...

    Had they had more time, it would have probably gone along the lines of "I love you", "Well yes, we know that, but there's something else..."

    That is interesting. It is completely possible that Kanan could have sensed it.

    Don't think we should be making a big deal about them not spelling it out that Kanan and Hera were romantically involved. For starters it doesn't matter as that was not a big plot point for the show as it had nothing to do with Ezra's story. Also people have sex without officially saying they love eachother all the time. If you want to say they shouldn't be doing that on a kids show than they also shouldn't spell out sexual activity on a kids show either.

    As far as Jacen Syndulla goes we will probably get to know a lot more about him. I wouldn't be surprised if they start introducing more young force sensitive children to us so we already have an existing cast of characters once they get into the Luke's acadamey storylines.

    or, he becomes a jedi and Mr. Jacen S. falls and becomes Darth Caedus, starting a new line of sith unique from Darth Bane's rule of two. Over/Under on that?

    I think its pretty much confirmed when Sabine says we know how his father was.

    Poor Luke. He will never be the last Jedi, no matter how much he tries...

    Also I know the set up is good, but who is to say he actually joins Luke?

    Why Jacen? What's the point of choosing that name?

    I heard someone guess that Hera’s brother might have been named Jacen.

    I can guarantee you that it far more to do with that than anything else.

    If your going to make an Alien/Man mix, why have the only difference be green hair? What's the point? It sort of hurts the imagery of a hybrid. I would prefer if Jacen was just a human boy that Hera adopted. At least they should have made his skin an alien color.

    It was a really heartwarming moment to know Kanan's legacy still lives on in his son, and having an EU type name made it better. There's no way they would have just went with boring old Jason, no offence to the Jasons out there. :p

    The thought of Jacen being inevitably killed off by Kylo Ren has obviously crossed our minds but that doesn't necessarily have to be the outcome. After all Ahsoka still outlived Vader and the Empire, although I guess she doesn't count as a Jedi survivor after having left the Jedi order.

    But that would've completely defeated the purpose of presenting him as Kanan's son.

    Adoption or making him look more like a Twilek. I just don't like how other then a little green coloring, he doesn't take after his moms alien characteristics at all. Such a lazy design to basically make him be human.

    I'll agree with you about making him have the "tail-head" Twi'lek look, but adopting wouldn't make any sense. What motive would Hera have for adopting a child?
