“We can't just run. The people have to know the truth."
Not many Mandalorians can say they’ve claimed possession of the legendary Darksaber. Before it rested in the rightful hands of Bo-Katan Kryze -- and was eventually taken from her, though we haven’t gotten that story yet -- it fell into the hands of Sabine Wren.
Once an Imperial cadet tasked with designing weapons on behalf of the Empire, Sabine eventually settled into her found family, the small but mighty Ghost crew we know and love from Star Wars: Rebels. But not before dishonoring her blood relatives with her choice to leave her old life behind.
Throughout the show, we watch Sabine gradually grow into a skilled leader and honorable hero. Freeing the Darksaber from its long captivity on Dathomir forced her to confront her past and helped her come to a life-changing realization: She didn’t betray her people on Mandalore when she fled. She fled to protect the people she loved.
Sabine’s bravery and resilience are just several of the many characteristics that make her an unforgettable presence in the Star Wars universe. It takes an unfathomable amount of strength to do the right thing even when it’s the hardest thing to do.
The Rebels finale left Sabine’s story on an intense cliffhanger. Though she mostly got the happy ending she deserved by that point, most fans don’t believe Dave Filoni is done telling her story. She left for an important mission in those final moments. There are plenty more adventures to be had. An Ahsoka-Sabine team-up is exactly what we didn’t know we needed. We'll get there eventually. Maybe.
We don’t have any novels featuring the galaxy’s most creative and colorful Mandalorian warrior … yet. But Sabine does appear in a handful of comics, chapter books, and the visual guide to the Rebels series outside the show itself.
You can also check out the art book for the series, which gives some behind-the-scenes info about the early development of her character design.
Spark of Rebellion: A Star Wars Rebels Cinestory Comic brings the characters and story you know and love into comic book form, featuring the early beginnings of the adventures featuring Ezra Bridger, Kanan Jarrus, and the remaining crew of The Ghost.
This graphic novel adapts the first five episodes of the series: Spark of Rebellion, Droids in Distress, Fighter Flight, Rise of the Old Masters and Breaking Ranks. Stills from the series are used to recreate key moments from each episode.
The animated micro-series Forces of Destiny has since been adapted into several chapter books featuring the same art and characters from several of the renowned video shorts.
The chapter book adapts four separate episodes of the series: Star Wars: Forces of Destiny: Sands of Jakku, BB-8 Bandits, Newest Recruit and The Imposter Inside, and features beloved characters such as Rey, Sabine Wren, and Padme Amidala.
Forces of Destiny: Daring Adventures Volume 2 adapts three episodes of the Star Wars: Forces of Destiny series: The Padawan Path, Beasts of Echo Base, and The Stranger, while adding new scenes and introductions. The Padawan Path revolves around an adventure of Ahsoka Tano, while Beasts of Echo Base focuses on Leia and The Stranger primarily features Jyn Erso.
Like the visual guides that have come before it, Rebels: The Visual Guide contains artwork and brief descriptions of everything seen onscreen throughout the TV series.

Star Wars art books have earned their reputation as some of the most visually stunning pieces of reference material out there. The Art of Star Wars: Rebels gives fans a series of behind-the-scenes glimpses into how each character and location was developed in all four seasons of the show.
The book includes a brief introduction from Dave Filoni himself explaining the choices behind the show’s unique art style and the original artwork that inspired it all.
Sabine Wren is a character known for expressing herself through her art. Fans can take an even closer look inside her head in this sketch-filled journal.
It features drawings and notes from Sabine’s private diary, giving fun snippets of background information about her armor, weapons, and the adventures she experiences while completing missions with her crew.
Kanan Jarrus wasn’t always his name. Former Jedi Padawan Caleb Dume was on a remote mission with his master when their clone troopers turned on them. This comic series tells the story of how Caleb survived countless obstacles to become the Jedi we meet in Star Wars: Rebels.
The hardcover omnibus combines all 12 issues of Kanan’s story into one volume so you can easily read from start to finish.
