That’s right, we said it. SABINE WREN will die as the next lead character. YES we hate to say that. NO we are not the first to think of this issue. But yes, we hypothesize or guess she will die.
It was this pic that caused us to pause.
That image is of AGENT KALLUS. He knows of the “little Mandalorian girl” and how she can accomplish great feats. In fact it excites him when he encounters her because, she’s not a Force user and is good on the ground. He would also have her file from her past.
SABINE WREN was in the Imperial Academy on Mandalore. She “dropped out” or so the story goes. She found the Rebels and casually calls them her family. She’s participated in many of their feats. But finding and meeting Ezra, changed her ideas. She does not know enough of her Mandalorian heritage to keep her going, but she does know how to hold her own.
HYPOTHESIS what if AGENT KALLUS captured her and made her betray the REBELS she holds dear through mechanical (a mind probe) or brain wash to get her to return back to the Academy to complete her training?
The REBELS would kill her for betraying them. She would have to decide to go on or leave. The GALACTIC EMPIRE would eliminate her when they were ready.
What would that look like? Why was SABINE always asking about needing to KNOW intelligence – who FULCRUM was? In STAR WARS REBELS season 2, she knows who FULCRUM is, which is spoiler alert: AHSOKA TANO, and now SABINE’S next mission is to find all the REBEL hideouts and notify the EMPIRE. She appears to dodge the ships and blast the TIE fighters she must.
OF COURSE SABINE has no clue this is going on. Why would she have some mind probe chip? Our hypothesis on that is, her father had one and was made to put one in her too. Her father is a Clone — we say Commander Wolffe. She has too many markings on her armor from the Clones and shares many similarities to them to say she is not related to them.
She has ARC TROOPER FIVES number on her right pauldron. An ANOOBA (A TYPE OF WOLF) on her left pauldron. The striping is reminiscent of several Clones’ customizations: FIVES, TUP, ECHO, and KIX.
Then her armor appears more MANDALORIAN in color and weaponry from there.
We say SABINE’S last name WREN comes from her mother. MANDALORIAN children should take on the names of their warrior women mothers. They fought for it. Why not?
WHY SHOULD SABINE WREN DIE? We don’t want her too, but there are many elements that STAR WARS REBELS will need to introduce and one of them is MANDALORIAN PROWESS. The most famous is BOBA FETT. Since SABINE WREN is not like BOBA FETT, the are a number of machinations they would have to do to justify SABINE’s PRESENCE in a 20 minute show.
Who would win? SABINE WREN or BOBA FETT? He is in the movies…
They could create a story where to save SABINE WREN from the Imperials is to re-integrate her fully in MANDALORIAN life. Basically, BOBA FETT has been asked to do a bounty on her and take her back to MANDALORE or a planet in MANDALORIAN SPACE.
The reason it would be stopped is because AGENT KALLUS want her. He desires her. It would be illegal.
There could be many other stories. Consider joining the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 to tell a better story than ours.
