Job/Skill

Mandalorian Leader of the Wren Clan
Elite Warrior/Saboteur/Pilot, Tech Genius

Though she was first and foremost a free-spirited artist, Wren had been trained as a Mandalorian warrior from an early age, and had extensive expertise and knowledge in weaponry, as well as proficiency in numerous combat skills. A prodigy of sorts, accomplished and acrobatic warrior and saboteur, both Hera Syndulla and Kanan Jarrus had the greatest respect for Wren's skills and trusted her expertise on the inner workings of the Imperial military, a remnant of her past as a cadet at the Imperial Academy on Mandalore. As munitions specialist of the Ghost crew, she maintained and tuned all weapons but her crewmates' lightsabers, but also created many of the explosive devices she and the team used. She also took lessons from Kanan and Ezra in lightsaber combat after she took the Darksaber from Dathomir.

Personality and interests

A free-spirited young woman with an artistic flair, Sabine Wren was driven by a desire to express herself artistically, and a fundamental distaste for following instructions she disagreed with. Despite her frequent feisty sarcastic quipping, she rarely let personal feelings get in the way of her job and remained focused on the objective at hand, though she still did her job with her unique artistic panache. She often graffitied different rebel insignias with her airbrushes every time they attacked the Imperials.

As an artist, Wren appreciated color and saw artistic license in her explosives, and saw the galaxy as her canvas—everything from her hair and armor to the walls of the Ghost could be improved with bursts of color and an expressive line, and took particular delight in repainting Imperial gear, armor and vehicles, turning the Empire's drab equipment into expressions of freedom. Wren had a 'practice makes perfect' attitude to her art, and so whenever she was struck by inspiration, she tended to paint on whatever there was at hand, and would work on her art aboard the Ghost during her downtime. A major influence in her works was Janyor of Bith. She also enjoyed compliments and talking about art, though she knew better than to trust Lando Calrissian's silver tongue.

Though her training in the Mandalorian warrior traditions (like armor restrictions) were often at odds with her artistic sensibilities, she was proud of her riotously colored armor, which was like a second skin to her, and sometimes forgot she had it on and fell asleep in it. Her armor's breastplate had a starbird painted on it; the legendary creature, which represented her own free spirit and desire to liberate the galaxy from the Empire, had become her symbol and trademark.

She exuded confidence in her combat skills, often facing off against numerous foes with ease. Despite her bravado, she occasionally doubted the possibility of defeating the Empire based on her past as an Imperial cadet. That past, in which a younger Wren had once trusted the Empire implicitly and followed its orders blindly, was marked a nightmarish experience that opened Wren's eyes to the Empire's true nature, and had caused her to despise the Imperial regime, and to instinctively rebel when asked to follow orders unquestioningly. As she grew to dislike secrecy, Wren sometimes let her more juvenile side cloud her better judgment in these matters. She also developed a somewhat callous streak towards Imperial enemies. During her academy training, Wren also had a few bad experiences with underwater missions that led her to develop a strong dislike for water; it could also wash away art, which she thought should never be allowed to happen.

Because of her resourcefulness and improvisational gifts, Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla deferred to Wren when to improvise a plan or in case they needed to devise an entire operation, trusting her skills and knowledge. As noted by Ezra Bridger, Wren was something of a loner among the crew of the Ghost, spending a lot of time in her room, and showing a tendency to eat and do combat practice on her own.

Wren was tormented by guilt over her role in helping the Empire to build weapons used to subjugate Mandalore. When she spoke out, her family chose to side with the Empire and cast her out. Unable to cope with her past, Wren found comfort and self-expression in art and graffiti. She initially regarded the Darksaber as an ill omen for bringing nothing but trouble to her family. As a result, Wren was initially unwilling to assume the responsibility and leadership which came with wielding the weapon. With the help of Bridger, Rau, and Jarrus, Wren managed to overcome her fears and to master the weapon. After her trials, Sabine found the inner strength to meet with her estranged family. Despite the hostility of her mother Ursa, Sabine still found the courage to stand up for her beliefs and values. Sabine regarded Gar Saxon as a traitor for his role in murdering the Journeyman Protectors, whom she regarded as true Mandalorian patriots. Despite her ideological differences with her family, Sabine still respected her parents and her brother Tristan.

Sabine refused to abandon her rebel comrades Kanan and Ezra even though her mother Ursa had tried to trade them with Saxon for the safety of her family. Sabine and her family repaired their strained relationship after Gar Saxon reneged on his deal with Ursa and tried to destroy Clan Wren. Due to Bridger and Jarrus' training, Sabine found the fortitude to take on the Viceroy in single combat. Sabine was also magnanimous in victory and decided to spare Saxon's life. Saxon, however, did not return the favor and tried to shoot her in the back. Seeking to rebuild ties with her family, Sabine elected not to return with Ezra and Kanan to the rebellion. Instead, she dedicated herself to helping Clan Wren to reunite the Mandalorians. While Sabine did not regard herself as Mandalore's new leader, she vowed to help her people find that individual.

Later, Sabine's loyalty to her rebel friends led her to convince her mother, Ursa Wren and Fenn Rau, to lend forces to help the besieged Phoenix Squadron and Massassi Group during the Battle of Atollon. As a warrior, Sabine was familiar with the military strategy and proposed concentrating the Mandalorian attack on the Imperial interdictor vessel in order to facilitate the rebels' escape.

The older Sabine regretted her youthful idealistic naivety which led her to build the "Duchess", an energy weapon capable of turning the beskar alloy inside Mandalorian armor against their wearers. Seeing the weapon being used to subjugate Mandalore turned her against the Empire. Sabine's desire to atone for her past wrongs led her to lead a joint Mandalorian-rebel mission to destroy the weapon. Sabine's love for her family led her to save her father. Sabine was distraught when she thought that her mother Ursa and brother Tristan had perished at the hands of the "Duchess." While Sabine could be passionate and vengeful towards foes like Tiber Saxon, she chose not to descend to the same level of her enemy at the urging of Bo-Katan. Bo-Katan recognized Sabine's potential as a military leader. In return, Sabine recognized Bo-Katan's leadership qualities and successfully convinced her to assume the Darksaber and the mantle of Mandalorian leadership.

While Sabine along with Ezra agreed to help Saw Gerrera in his quest to uncover the Empire's secret weapon, they became disillusioned with Saw's callous disregard for the lives of non-combatants and his determination to achieve results by any means necessary. As a resourceful fighter who planned ahead, Sabine advocated stealing the TIE/D Defender Elite's flight data recorder to aid the Alliance's war effort against the Empire. After losing their escape transport, Sabine proposed recovering the fighter's hyperdrive so that they could use Ryder's U-wing to transport the flight recorder back to the Rebellion.

Sabine's sense of comradeship led her to participate in a mission to rescue Hera. Sabine was devastated by the death of Kanan and sought revenge against the Empire. However, she came to make peace with Kanan's sacrifice upon realizing that he had helped advance their mission to knock out Thrawn's TIE Defender factory on Lothal. Despite her hatred of the Empire, Sabine acted as a voice of caution and stopped Zeb from pummeling the Noghri Rukh to death. Sabine also maintained a defiant face towards Minister Hydan and was unmoved by his flattery.

After Ryder Azadi pretended to betray the Spectres and their rebel allies, Sabine feigned anger at him. Sabine also showed leadership and ingenuity when she devised a plan to reactivate the Dome's shield generators that involved splitting the rebels into two teams. Sabine regarded her fellow Spectres as family and painted a mural of them in honor of their memory. Her bond to Ezra led her to undertake a quest with Ahsoka Tano following the Battle of Endor to bring him home.

History

Sabine Wren is a human female Mandalorian warrior and was a revolutionary leader during the early rebellion against the Galactic Empire. Her artistry during the rebellion inspired the symbol of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, and her claim over the ancient Mandalorian weapon known as the Darksaber made her a symbol to Clan Wren and the hopes of freeing her people's homeworld of Mandalore from the rule of the Empire.

Prior to becoming a rebel, Wren was a cadet at the Imperial Academy of Mandalore. She built weapons she believed would be used for peace but were instead used against her family and her people. Wracked with guilt, Wren left Mandalore and was branded a traitor by the Empire and her mother, Ursa Wren, leader of the clan. Wren worked as a bounty hunter alongside her friend Ketsu Onyo before being recruited by Captain Hera Syndulla and the Jedi Kanan Jarrus to join their rebel crew aboard the starship Ghost. Together, the crew fought against the Empire and used Wren's art as a symbol of hope. They became part of a larger rebel movement, with Wren's work continuing to inspire the fledgling rebellion.

In 2 BBY, while hunting down the former Sith Lord and Mandalorian ruler Darth Maul, Wren discovered the Darksaber on Dathomir. She initially wanted nothing to do with it, but Jarrus and Fenn Rau, a Mandalorian Protector of Concord Dawn who joined the rebellion, convinced her to wield it so she could unite the Mandalorian people and bring them into the rebellion. Wren returned to her family and convinced them of the Empire's treachery, helping to kill Gar Saxon, the Imperial Viceroy of Mandalore, in the process. After aiding her family in the Mandalorian civil war, Sabine returned to aid the Rebel Alliance's struggle against the Empire.
