Sabine Wren in Star Wars Rebels Season 3 will have an exquisite role as she has a new toy in her arsenal against the Empire.
A jetpack. One she has wanted since last season, 2.
Her biggest challenge will be to her “Mandalorian-ness”. Long time fans of hers know she’s a unique type of Fem-Mando who fights for what she is right in the galaxy, and paints art to reflect her form of protest against the Empire. She also is considered “dar’manda” by most Mandalorians because she is a part of Death Watch, a former separated team from the rest of Mandalorians.
In the trailer, we see Fenn Rau tell her he is proud that she remembers his Mandalorian origins and that she has gained his respect.
It appears that Sabine is becoming more of a warrior in of herself. And she is becoming a leader.
But rumor has it that her reasons for obtaining the Darksaber (Pre Vizsla’s laser sword, then Darth Maul’s sword) is one of many reasons she left the Imperial Academy on Mandalore.
She has no family to speak of or what we know of her. It is our group, the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 to NOT believe that Bo-Katan is the mother of Sabine Wren because Sabine is “Desi” or Southeast Indian heritage and Bo-Katan is biracial or monoracial. It would be unfair to the bulk of diverse fans to whitewash Sabine Wren who is an awesome character and has a lot to offer girls of color.
We do think her mother worked with Bo-Katan as a Nite Owl and is with her during the last days of Mandalore. Her mother met another man and they had Sabine Wren together. Then her mother was killed in battle.
Here is our fan-fiction outlining that: Star Wars: Truth and Trudge – Vernissage
We also think that Sabine will be placed in a confounding situation where she will have to chose between that which is the Rebels and that which is her duty to the Empire.
All because of Grand Admiral Thrawn
We wrote a fan-fiction on Thrawn’s interaction with Sabine Wren after the Imperials took over Mandalore. He taught her art, color and music theory. Sabine was his protege. Unfortunately, he was reassigned to the Outer Rim because he was an Alien Imperial Officer. He told her to graduate from the Academy and look for him when she was to be assigned to his fleet. That never happened. She left the Academy.
At some point she went underground and hid until she encountered Kanan Jarrus, Hera Syndulla, Chopper, and Zeb Orrelios. She became Spectre 5 among the Ghost Crew and she was a weapons expert.
Sabine Wren will be one to watch this season with these two images when she learns Thrawn is searching for her:
What will she do?
