Sabine was in addition to a warrior an explosives expert and a graffiti Artist, qualities which then came in handy as one of the first to oppose the Imperials. Part in the Ghost Crew operating on an Outer Rim Territories planet Lothal, Sabine used her gift for bomb-making to great effect against the Empire, and Wren would often marked her works with a spray-paint tags. Wren's classic Mandalorian armor Set was notable for incorporating a custom stylings, reflecting her creative-meets-rebellious spirit.
Early Life Edit
An human female, Sabine Wren was born on planet Krownest in the last years of the Galactic Republic, into an Clan Wren of House Vizsla. Her mother Ursa was a member of Death Watch during the time when Mandalore had fallen into an chaos after the collapse of the new Mandalorian government near the end of a Clone War galactic conflict. Trained from an early age in a Mandalorian warrior culture, Wren forged her distinctive armor with her family, but also inherited an Nite Owls helmet from an individual whose identity she was reluctant to reveal. After this Clone War ended, the Galactic Empire established a presence at Mandalore and opened an Imperial Academy, which Sabine attended as an Imperial Cadet. As a youth, she believed in the Galactic empire and, even as it put Wren through some 'rough stuff", Wren followed all orders she received from them blindly.
During her time at the Academy, she studied the tactics of Twi'lek Resistance leader Cham Syndulla and Mandalorian Journeyman Protector leader Fenn Rau during the Clone Wars. This would eventually put her at odds with the Imperial establishment there, and led to a nightmarish experience. As a young and idealistic Imperial cadet, Sabine built an Arc Pulse Generator that she nicknamed the "Duchess", which reacted with the beskar alloy inside Mandalorian armor, incinerating the armor and disintegrating their wearers. The weapon was regarded by many Mandalorians as an abomination because it turned their armor against them; Mandalorian armor held a sacrosanct place in Mandalorian culture since it was passed down from generation to generation. As Wren witnessed the Empire subjugating Mandalore, she was wracked with guilt at her own role in helping the Empire build the weapon used to oppress her people. When she spoke out against the Empire, Sabine's mother, her father, and her brother Tristan Wren sided with the Empire and cast her out. Estranged from her family, Sabine Wren escaped the Imperial Academy with the help of her friend, Ketsu Onyo, and deserted the Empire.
Sabine's decision to renounce the Empire had serious ramifications for her family. Her father became a hostage of Viceroy Gar Saxon, the Emperor's Hand and the Imperial puppet ruler of Mandalore. Her mother Ursa was forced to prove her clan's loyalty to the Empire while her brother Tristan was forced to serve in Saxon's Imperial Super Commandos so that the family could remain in Saxon's favor. Before fleeing Mandalore, Sabine also destroyed her weapon. However, the Empire was able to use her research to build another arc pulse generator. During her escape from Mandalore, Wren received no small amount of help from Wookiees, for which Wren felt she owed them a debt. Wren and Onyo then became bounty hunting partners; the two were like sisters, though Wren was the softer of the two. Together, they dreamed of joining the criminal organization Black Sun, all the while doing things just for money and caring only about themselves in an attempt to survive. Ultimately, they parted on bad terms due to Onyo getting "greedy" and leaving Wren for dead. Eventually, the brutal Imperial crackdown on her homeworld and the consequent loss of her family pushed Wren into open rebellion.
Rebellion on Lothal Edit
Joining the Spectres Edit
By the age of 16, Wren had joined a rebel cell on the planet Lothal consisting of the Twi'lek captain Hera Syndulla, the former Jedi Padawan Kanan Jarrus, the astromech droid C1-10P "Chopper", and the Lasat warrior Garazeb Orrelios. The Spectres operated from the modified VCX-100 light freighter Ghost. Giving Wren a second chance in life, the Spectres regularly raided the Imperials for supplies which they distributed to the needy and sabotage missions. On one such mission, Wren (whose codename was "Spectre 5") was tasked with creating a diversion that would allow the Ghost to escape. She infiltrated a TIE fighter landing platform in Lothal's Capital City and spray-painted graffiti of a violet starbird onto a TIE fighter wing. She was then noticed and hunted down by stormtrooper TK-626, his captain, and four others. Wren eventually detonated a paint bomb, creating a colorful explosion that left the stormtroopers stunned and splattered in blue paint, but alive, and strode off into the city amid grateful locals, an event that earned her the nickname "The Artist" among local stormtroopers. Wren, or an individual closely matching her description, was on Lothal's most-wanted list for wreaking havoc on an Imperial airfield.
