Sabine Wren Was Not in ‘The Mandalorian,’ but Here Is What You Need To Know About Her Story


Almost a decade ago, Star Wars fans were introduced to a whole new cast of characters in ‘Star Wars Rebels.’ Taking place between ‘Revenge of the Sith’ and ‘A New Hope, ‘Star Wars Rebels’ was an animated series that showed the rise of the rebellion while the Empire was in complete control of the galaxy. Focusing on one Rebel cell, audiences grew very attached to these characters and were devastated when the show ended on a cliffhanger. Fast forward many years, it was announced that Ahsoka Tano would have her own TV show, and the characters from ‘Star Wars Rebels’ would appear in live-action, concluding the series. One of the more notable characters returning is Sabine Wren, who appears to be a major character in the show. The question is, who is Sabine Wren, and what is her story? If you haven’t seen ‘Star Wars Rebels,’ don’t worry; the article will tell you everything you need to know!

Sabine Wren was a Mandalorian who became a legendary leader in the Rebel Alliance. She was known for her art, combat skills, and intellect and inspired the Rebel symbol we all know today. Before becoming a Rebel soldier, Wren was an imperial cadet on Mandalore but fled after realizing the Empire was a force of evil. After fleeing, Sabine is recruited by Hera Syndulla and Kanan Jarrus to join their Rebel squad and fight against the Empire.

Hera Syndulla, Kana Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, Garazab Orreilios, and Sabine Wren quickly became loved by audiences, and now that we have briefly discussed Sabine Wren’s story, let’s analyze it in more detail! If you’re interested in more, stay with us and keep reading!

Fleeing Mandalore

When Sabine was a child, she joined the Imperial Academy of Mandalore. Like the rest of the galaxy, the Mandalorians initially believed that the Empire was a force for good and was changing the galaxy for the better. Due to her great intellect, the Empire had her build them weapons, including her Arc Pulse Generator.

This was then used against her own people as this device could break Mandalorian Beskar steel and kill anyone wearing it. This caused Sabine to flee, after which both her clan and the Empire declared her a traitor, causing her to have no one to turn to.

Joining the Ghost Crew

After fleeing Mandlore, Wren spent some time as a bounty hunter with a friend but eventually went their separate ways.  When she was 16 years old, she was found by the Ghost Crew, which at the time consisted of former Jedi Padawan, Kanan Jarrus, Hera Syndulla, and Zeb. The team quickly realized Sabine’s skills and resourcefulness, and due to her hatred of the Empire, they were a perfect match. The team also noticed Sabine’s art skills, which caused her to paint a symbol representing hope. This then became the classic Rebel Alliance logo that we know today.

Time in Ghost Crew 

While in the Ghost Crew, Sabine went on many different missions against the Empire. When Ezra Bridger joined the crew, the two of them became great friends due to their personalities and similar ages to each other. While Ezra initially had a crush on Sabine, it never went any further, and the two of them became great friends.

While Sabine might be young, she had faced countless threats and enemies, one notably being the Sith lord Darth Maul. Even though Maul was always after Ezra, Sabine and the Ghost crew always came together to save Ezra from Maul and aid him in his battles against the Sith lord.


‘Ahsoka’: Is Sabine Wren Force-Sensitive?

After Darth Maul and Ezra had connected both the Sith and Jedi holocrons, Sabine got possessed by the spirit of one of the deceased night sisters. This caused her to encounter the Darksaber that Maul had used to rule Mandalore during the Clone Wars.

Wielding the Darksaber 

Due to the violent nature and history of the weapon, Sabine did not want anything to do with the blade. This did not stop her from training to use it with Kanan Jarrus, who taught her to control the blade and not let it control her.

For context, whoever wields the blade has full rule over Mandalore, which is how Maul managed to take it over. This responsibility made Sabine not want the weapon, but she eventually used it to defeat Gar Saxon and free her family and other clans from the Empire. She then gifted the blade to Bo-Katan, who would use it to unite Mandalore. However, Bo-Katan would then lose the blade, which eventually fell into Moff Gideon’s hands years later, as seen in the ‘Mandalorian.’

What’s next for Sabine Wren?

Clearly, Sabine will be a major character in ‘Ahsoka’ and seems to be getting trained by the Jedi Knight. While Sabine has had combat training with the Darksaber, it was never specified that she was force-sensitive, so this could be something we learn more about in the show. Sabine, Ahsoka, and Hera will be looking for both Ezra and Grand Admiral Thrawn, who are both speculated to still be alive after the events of ‘Star Wars Rebels.’ The Ghost Crew seems to be getting back together to prevent another war; with Zeb making a cameo in the ‘Mandalorian,’ we will likely see him return.
