The relationships of Sabine Wren.
- 1 Family
- 2 Allies
- 3 Enemies
Sabine is a daughter of the Mandalorian Clan Wren. Sabine has revealed next to nothing about her family, aside from that her mother was a member of Death Watch due to Clan Wren being affiliated with House Vizla.
Recently, from Gar Saxon, Sabine has learned her mother is working with the Empire and looking for her. Despite this news, Sabine has enough faith in her mother to believe her mother is being coerced.
In "Trials of the Darksaber" , not only did Sabine mention that she has a brother, but she also revealed why she'd left Mandalore. She also said that she'd made weapons that the Empire used on her friends and family. She tried to stop them, but when she did they sided with the Empire. Although she left them, everything Sabine's ever done has been for her family and Mandalore.
- Main article: Ursa Wren
Sabine and Ursa have a complicated relationship since Sabine spoke out against the Empire but her mother did not stand with her, spurring her daughter to run away. Ursa had to deal with the ramifications of her daughter's actions but chose not to go looking for her. After reuniting with each other, Ursa told Sabine that her staying away kept her safe from their enemies on Mandalore.
Ursa and Sabine have a mutual disappointment in each other, but they both have a mutual respect for one another. Ursa doubted Sabine's possession of the Darksaber would change anything, especially after Sabine admitted she did not claim it from Maul through combat. Ursa only ever wanted to protect her family, which led her to betray her daughter's trust in turning her friends over to Gar Saxon, only for Saxon to betray their agreement. Even so, Sabine saved her mother from being killed by Saxon, and Ursa saved her daughter from Saxon after he tried to shoot Sabine in the back even after he'd been bested as a warrior by her.
Ursa and Sabine finally agreed that what happened next they would face it together and restore their people to freedom.
- Main article: Tristan Wren
Sabine cares for her brother Tristan but was disappointed to see him wearing the armor of Saxon's Commandos, and Tristan resented Sabine for how her actions led their Clan to fall out of favor and lose status among their people.
- Main article: Alrich Wren
Sabine and her father Alrich have a more positive relationship than she has with her mother or brother, as Sabine and Alrich share a love of art. However, like the rest of her family, Alrich sided with the Empire out of fear when Sabine spoke out against the Empire, which caused her to run away. This in turn led to the Saxon Clan capturing Alrich and holding him captive to keep Clan Wren under control.
Years later, Sabine, with help from family and friends, rescued her father and they shared a warm reunion and exchanged opinions over her artistic tastes.
- Main article: Hera Syndulla
Sabine and Hera shared a mother-daughter bond. Sabine always told Hera about any of her problems or troubles. However, Sabine can get annoyed from time to time when Hera keeps her in the dark. After Sabine was injured by Darth Vader, Hera was worried about her and asked if she was alright.
- Main article: Kanan Jarrus
Sabine looked up to Kanan due to his leadership skills and abilities, and possibly shared a father-daughter bond with him. It has been shown that Sabine gets annoyed by Kanan, calling him frustrating. But, when Kanan was captured by the Empire, Sabine showed that she was willing to go to the extreme to save him. The one thing they agree on, is helping Ezra through his troubled past. When he started training her in lightsaber combat, Kanan was also the one who was finally able to learn about Sabine's troubled past by pushing her to admit why she left and what she was afraid of.
- Main article: Ezra Bridger
As the two youngest members of the crew of the Ghost, Sabine and Ezra were good friends. Ezra instantly developed a crush on Sabine the moment she first revealed her beauty to him, and attempted to flirt with her. Though she disregarded Ezra's awkward attraction to her, Sabine eventually came to see Ezra as a good friend, teammate, and a younger brother. She was very protective of his well being. She even went as far as obtaining and cleaning out a hologram file of Ezra and his parents and was instrumental in helping Ezra confront his demons about his parents' whereabouts. Since "Gathering Forces", Sabine and Ezra's relationship has grown a great deal, as it's been shown that Sabine cares enough about Ezra's feelings to know when to stop talking about his parents when he enters a room. Sabine has shown that she has complete trust in Ezra, as she was willing to let him lead her and Zeb on a mission to find Kanan, even behind Hera's back. Sabine has also been shown that she doesn't like it when Ezra uses his powers to threaten people, as he did to Vizago, showing that she wants Ezra to follow the right path. Ezra trusted Sabine enough not to tell Hera that he and Zeb didn't crash the stolen TIE Fighter. The two even worked on the TIE together behind everyone's back. Despite Sabine's protective side of Ezra, she does occasionally like to tease him, as she had Chopper lock down his feet to make Ezra believe that he couldn't lift him, and even said she 'knows what he smells like'. It is shown that Ezra is willing to sacrifice his own life for Sabine's safety. They often tease each other and joke around, with Ezra occasionally cracking jokes with her on missions together. Since Ezra doesn't act the way he used to whenever he was around her, he may not have a crush on her anymore.
Since Ezra started becoming more aggressive, Sabine has been shown to be worried and a little bit snippy with him, even arguing against his rather aggressive methods.
When Sabine went undercover to find the three pilots (Wedge, Rake, and Hobbie), Ezra was extremely concerned about her safety. He hated being unable to do anything to help her. When Kanan asked Ezra if he trusted her, Ezra told him that he did, to which Kanan then impressed into Ezra that he must learn to accept there are things outside his control, insinuating to Ezra that he had to trust Sabine could handle herself.
When Ezra was captured by Saxon, and Rau disagreed with saving him and called him a pawn, Sabine corrected him, saying Ezra wasn't a pawn and she had total confidence he could take care of himself. After the mission Ezra had a newfound respect for Sabine. Later, during a mission above Wynkahthu, Sabine was relieved when Zeb saved Ezra and himself from a fatal fall, though she seemed somewhat more concerned about Ezra.
Sabine (along with Kanan and the others) were concerned about Ezra when he began to hear and see Maul. When Ezra tried to kill a fellow rebel (because he thought that he was Maul), she tried (unsuccessfully) to hold him back. Once Kanan had helped Ezra realize that the man wasn't Maul, he was scared and confused, prompting Sabine to place a comforting hand on his shoulder. Out concern for Ezra, she placed a tracker on his com link (without him knowing). She and Kanan followed Ezra and Maul to Dathomir to help him. Despite Ezra's warning, Sabine (and Kanan) opened fire on the Nightsister ghosts. Ezra was very concerned when Sabine and Kanan were possessed by the spirits. After fighting her while she was possessed and freeing her, Ezra warned Sabine not to go back into the cave. Despite Sabine's concern, Ezra ran back in to save Kanan. Ezra was upset with Sabine for going back in, and admonished her for not listening to him. However, Sabine pointed out that she'd never listened to him before, and asked him why she should start now.
When Rau and Kanan proposed that Sabine train in the use of the Darksaber in hopes of using it to rally Mandalorians to join the Rebellion, Ezra expressed skepticism at her ability to master the weapon without the Force. Despite this, he assisted in her training, going over the basic saber forms with her and then sparring with her. The two bickered during a few of these exchanges, though their relationship remained amicable; Ezra would later go after her when a loss to Kanan prompted her to storm off. Ezra offered his sympathies but was promptly informed that he had no idea what she was going through at the prospect of facing her family; acknowledging this, Ezra pointed out that she was at least fortunate enough to still have her family. This cooled Sabine's temper and made her apologetic, and she subsequently returned to Kanan and apologized; after she revealed the truth about her past with the Empire, Ezra joined Kanan and Fenn in expressing his support for her.
After the Liberation of Lothal, Sabine stayed on Lothal to protect the planet from the Empire in the absence of Ezra, and then realized she had something else left to do. Together with Ahsoka, she embarked on a journey to find Ezra, who disappeared during the Liberation of Lothal.
Besides Kanan, Sabine is the second closest person to Ezra.
In the final episode of Rebels Recon, Dave Filoni explained that the reason why Ezra and Sabine didn’t get together at the point of the finale during the series was because he felt that it was more important to show that two people can have a strong connection, without being in a relationship.
- Main article: Garazeb Orrelios
Sabine treated and thought of Zeb like an older brother, coming to appreciate how he looked out for her and his crewmates. Zeb in turn cares for and respects Sabine, and often follows her lead due to her greater knowledge in how the Empire works, and he trusts her enough to watch his back.
- Main article: Ahsoka Tano
Sabine didn't know much about Ahsoka since the latter girl went by her codename "Fulcrum". Sabine tried so hard to find out who "Fulcrum" was but Hera told her what she needed to know, which made Sabine feel like they didn't trust her. However, Sabine grew to respect the former Jedi's wisdom and Ahsoka tasked her with many handy work, such as re-activating the clone caller to find help Ezra, Kanan and Zeb find an old friend the Togruta's who can supply the rebel fleet with a list of useful bases. When Ezra disappeared
- Main article: Lando Calrissian
Lando flirted with Sabine by telling her that her paintings were magnificent. Sabine seemed rather flattered by his comments (which resulted in Ezra getting jealous) and offered to show him some of her more "impressionistic" paintings. Lando later offered to buy some her work, but she replied with a questioning tone, speculating that she may be on to his intentions.
- Main article: Ketsu Onyo
Sabine and Ketsu go back to their days in the Mandalorian Imperial Academy, from which they both escaped and for a while worked together as freelance bounty hunters, and were said to be close like sisters. That relationship soured after Ketsu abandoned Sabine to save herself. Even so, Sabine learned to forgive Ketsu and was able to rekindle their old friendship when they met again, despite it starting off with them at odds with each other.
Ketsu proved she still cared for Sabine by saving her life and passing up a bounty, and said she would consider joining the Rebels before they parted again, this time on friendly terms.
- Main article: Fenn Rau
Initially, Sabine sought revenge against Fenn Rau when the Protector very nearly killed Hera, and challenged him in accordance to the Mandalorian Code. She was able to defeat him in their duel, and worked with Kanan to bring Fenn into the custody of Phoenix Squadron as a "reluctant recruit".
Some time later, she challenged him to a game of strategy, having apparently spent time with him previously, in order to try and convince Fenn to truly join the Rebellion. Fenn was adamant that his loyalty was to Mandalore, and admonished Sabine for apparently forgetting of her heritage. After hearing nothing from the Protectors of Concord Dawn, Sabine, Ezra, and Chopper took Fenn to investigate, only to find Fenn's men had been killed, and he blamed Sabine and the Rebels for holding him against his will so that he couldn't be there to lead his men. Afterwards, after eavsedropping on those responsible, Manalorians allied with the Empire under the command of Gar Saxon, Fenn realized if he'd been there he would've been killed too. So he helped Sabine rescue Ezra but initially left them for dead. Despite this, after everything, Fenn went back to rescue them, and finally committed himself to the Rebel Cause, and stating Sabine had earned his respect for her true Mandalorian Honor in comparison to Saxon's disgrace.
Recently, Fenn, after speaking with Kanan, nominated Sabine to wield the Darksaber in hopes of rallying Mandalore to the Rebellion, and gave her a pair of Mandalorian Vambraces, and learned why Sabine left Mandalore during her lightsaber training. When she expressed doubts in herself, that anyone would ever follow her lead, Fenn stepped forward, pledging to follow her and kneeled in respect.
In Sabine, Fenn sees hope in the Liberation of Mandalore.
- Main article: Wedge Antilles
When Sabine infiltrated the Skystrike Academy, she met and befriended Wedge, who sought to defect. Later, Sabine rescued Wedge from a prison cell after they got caught and helped him escape from the Academy, and recruited him to the rebellion.
- Main article: Bo-Katan Kryze
During a rebel mission to liberate Sabine's father, Bo-Katan rescued Sabine and the others from a trap. Sabine recognized her when the woman removed her helmet, and tried to give her the Darksaber, but Bo-Katan declined, since she failed as Regent of Mandalore. Bo-Katan was furious when she learned that Sabine had designed the Arc Pulse Generator, which she saw as a weapon of a coward, and confronted and rebuked her for it. She accepted her explanation that she created it as a young and arrogant cadet at the Imperial Academy, but did the best she could to destroy it upon learning what the Empire was going to do with it. Subsequently, the Mandalorians and rebels went on a mission to destroy the weapon. Sabine and Bo-Katan were captured by Tiber Saxon, who forced Sabine to upgrade it. Sabine instead turned the weapon on Saxon, intending to use it against the Empire. However, she was stopped by Bo-Katan, who warned her that doing so would make her no better than the Empire, and convinced her to destroy the Arc Pulse Generator.
Sabine offered the Darksaber again to Bo-Katan, believing she had the wisdom of a good ruler. Though Bo-Katan was skeptical of her worthiness, she finally accepted the Darksaber from Sabine to lead Mandalore.
- Main article: Darth Vader
Sabine and Vader first met after the mission to save Maketh Tua went south. After they realized that they were outmatched they tried to flee on board a Imperial shuttle. As Vader was following Kanan and Ezra, she tried to buy them time by firing at the Sith Lord, which he easily deflected right back at her causing her to become injured in her forehead and chest, and would have been killed had it not been for her armor and helmet.
The Fifth Brother
- Main article: Fifth Brother
Sabine and Ezra encountered the Fifth Brother during a mission with Zeb to find medical supplies. When she got separated from Ezra, she and Zeb tried to set a trap for the Inquisitor, only for him to use their trap against them and she was captured by the Fifth Brother and threatened when Ezra was refusing to talk.
Thankfully, with Zeb's help, Sabine and Ezra escaped and she helped cover their escape by opening fire on the Inquisitors, forcing the Brother to deflect her shots, and insuring he and his partner, the Seventh Sister, lost their quarry.
The Seventh Sister
- Main article: Seventh Sister
Sabine and Ezra encountered who they initially mistook for a bounty hunter until the Seventh Sister ignited her lightsaber. Sabine tried to destroy the Sister's probe droids, which dodged and shocked her, until Ezra shorted out a blast-door, cutting himself and the Sister off from Sabine to protect her.
Sabine was captured by the Sister's partner, the Fifth Brother, and when Ezra was refusing to talk, the Brother threatened Sabines life. Thankfully, Zeb came to her and Ezra's rescue, and Sabien covered their escape by shooting at the Inquisitors. Because her partner was deflecting Sabine's shots, the Sister wasn't able to prevent their targets from getting away.
- Main article: Maul
- Main article: Gar Saxon
Sabine and Saxon apparently know of each other due to both Saxon and Sabine's mother having been members of Death Watch. Saxon hypocritically called Sabine a coward and a disgrace, that her running away from the Imperial Academy had tarnished her family's honor, when he himself had sold out Mandalore to the Empire in exchange for power.
It was only out of respect for Sabine's family and her mother that Saxon offered her mercy in exchange for swearing allegiance to him. Sabine refused and almost escaped Saxon and his men with Ezra and Chopper, and it was only by Fenn, having had a change of heart and coming back after leaving them for dead, that Sabine managed to escape Saxon. Even so, she fought well against Saxon and left him with a humiliating defeat.
When next they met, it was after Sabine had returned to her clan and family because her mother Ursa Wren intended to turn Kanan, Ezra, and the Darksaber over to Saxon in exchange for Sabine's safety. But Saxon betrayed the agreement, intending to kill the entire clan except for Sabine, stating he was going to take her back to Mandalore "to finish what [she] started".
Wielding Ezra's lightsaber, Sabine engaged Saxon in a duel. Despite Saxon's ruthless offensive, Sabine bested him and demanded he yield. He stated he would never yield to her, and goaded her to kill him. Sabine was tempted but chose to be the better person in sparing his life. Saxon disgracefully tried to shoot Sabine in the back, only to be shot in the heart by Ursa.
