    Sabine and Jyn Erso were operating in the Rebel Alliance around the same time, but the two characters only had a brief run-in with one another. That run-in came when Sabine had been charged with safely delivering a package containing a holomap to a drop-off location, but dropped it while she was escaping from some stormtroopers. 

    Jyn then picked up the map, and Sabine followed her to retrieve it to keep it from falling into the hands of the stormtroopers. After Jyn was backed into a corner, she eventually agreed to give up the map, and Sabine was then able to complete her mission.

    Star Wars: Rebels creator Dave Filoni has said he often names his characters after historical or mythical figures in order to give them added weight or meaning. In the case of Sabine, she was named after the Sabine women, a group of women in Roman mythology who were the frequent subjects of Renaissance painters. 

    According to the myth, a number of young women were abducted by Romulus shortly after the founding of Rome. These women were apparently abducted in part because of concerns about whether Rome would be able to grow given its primarily male population.

    Mandalorian armor is typically hundreds of years old, and because it's steeped in tradition, its current wearers aren't usually allowed to make many modifications to it. After leaving Mandalore and defecting from the Empire, though, Sabine realized she could customize her armor to her liking. 

    She kept the body glove, but stripped away much of the rest of the armor to give it as much mobility as possible. She also applied a personalized paint job to each part of her armor that was based on the color scheme of the helmet she had inherited.

    In part because of her warrior upbringing, Sabine was one of the most skilled fighters in the entire Rebel Alliance. She had knowledge of a wide range of different weapons, and was also proficient in numerous combat skills. 

    She became the munitions specialist on the Ghost, but she also trained in lightsaber combat, and was considered something of a prodigy. Sabine was also a demolitions expert, and was fluent in several languages. She may not have been a Force user, but she was an asset to the Rebellion because of the many other skills she possessed.

    Although she was born and raised largely on Mandalore, Sabine also considers Krownest, the ancestral home of her clan, to be her homeworld. Clan Wren was led by Sabine's mother, Ursa, and Krownest is an icy planet that was under Mandalorian governance. 

    Clan Wren was a legendary family, and they possessed a stronghold on the planet that was built along the edge of a frozen lake. Sabine didn't return to Krownest for many years after joining the Rebellion, but eventually made a direct appeal to her family to join the Rebellion shortly before the Battle of Yavin.

    Sabine didn't just express her artistry through her own equipment; she also used it to help brand the Rebellion that she played such a formative role in. She frequently painted graffiti in order to inspire her fellow rebels, and those rebel signs were the ultimate inspiration for the rebel insignia that was used later on in the war. 

    Sabine also painted a variety of other symbols, and her artistry was often viewed as a symbol of hope for the Ghost crew. The Empire was not big on individuality, and Sabine's art was a concrete reminder of the world they were fighting for.
