The upcoming Ahsoka Tano series will see the first live action debut of the fan-favorite Sabine Wren. But how much do you know about her? here are some Sabine Wren facts to blow your mind!
She Has A Huge Hand In Creating The Rebel Insignia
Sabine Wren may look timid and weak at first. But do not take her stature lightly. She has inspired some major milestone events in Star Wars history. The Rebel Insignia – symbol of the Rebellion, came out of direct inspiration from Sabine Wren. Sabine Wren has a talent for graffiti and art in general. You can easily spot her artwork in her colorful armor plating she wears. She usually draws a phoenix like creature with its wings spread out. Her phoenix graffiti was left all over Lothal. The Rebel alliance then created a more simplified symbol influenced by her design. Sabine Wren was the key to the Rebel Alliance’s sigil. How cool is that!!
Sabine Wren Was Trained As An Imperial Soldier
She was not just trained in the Way of the Mandalore. She also received military training from the Imperial Academy that wa newly established at Mandalore under the Empire’s tutelage. Wren’s mastery of munitions handling and her expert piloting skills are a direct result of her training as an Imperial cadet. In fact, she stood out as one of the best and brightest of her batch. Her graffiti artwork could be seen on her weapons as well even while she trained as an Imperial Cadet.
Her Family History Is Very Complicated
Sabine Wren belongs to Clan Wren. Clan Wren is a powerful family within the power structures of Old Mandalore. The Wrens were close allies of House Vizsla. Pre Vizsla, a member of House Vizsla, was the leader of the traitorous Death Watch. Moreover, the mother of Sabine Wren turned on her own people by siding with Clan Saxon – allies to the Empire. Wren led a rebellion within her own clan and ousted her mother Ursa Wren’s evil machinations, helping the Mandalorians take back their world.
Sabine Wren Was Once The Owner Of The Darksaber
While traveling with the Ghost crew to Dathomir, Sabine Wren came across one of the most fabled weapons in Star wars history. The Darksaber is a legendary weapon that is traditionally wielded by the ruler of Mandalore.The famous weapon was once used by pre Vizsla against Obi-Wan Kenobi before we saw it in The Mandalorian Season 2. Initially hesitant to wield it, she later relented and was trained in lightsaber combat by the Jedi Kanan Jarrus.
Later Handed Over The Darksaber To Bo-Katan
She actually gave up her claim to the mantle of the ruler of Mandalore by giving away to Darksaber to Bo-Katan Kryze. This move would have some serious consequences for The Mandalorian later on. Why did not Bo-Katan just accept the Darksaber from Din Djarin like she did earlier. Also, how did the Darksaber end up in Moff Gideon’s hands? Did he defeat her in open combat and claim it for himself from her?
