Description: Ursa Wren was a human female Mandalorian warrior, the wife of Alrich Wren, the mother of Tristan and Sabine Wren, and the leader and Countess of Clan Wren. She was part of Death Watch, a Mandalorian splinter group that took over Mandalore during the Clone Wars. Mandalore was occupied by the Galactic Empire after the war's end, and Sabine Wren attended the Imperial Academy on the planet. Wren fled the Academy, however, bringing shame upon her family.
Due to her daughter's actions, Clan Wren were treated with suspicion by the other clans. Ursa's husband was kept as a hostage by Viceroy Gar Saxon to ensure her family's cooperation while her son Tristan was forced to join the Imperial Super Commandos. In an effort to protect Sabine, Ursa did not search for her daughter. In public, Ursa sided with the Empire and the Emperor's Hand Saxon. In 2 BBY, Ursa was reunited with her daughter Sabine in the Wren Stronghold on Krownest, who had joined the rebellion and had returned to seek her family's support for the rebels.
Unwilling to antagonize Saxon, Ursa was initially cold towards her daughter and the rebel emissaries, Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger. Ursa's pragmatism clashed with Sabine's idealism. In an attempt to save Sabine's life, Ursa attempted to trade the rebels and the Darksaber to Saxon, in exchange for Sabine's pardon. However, Saxon betrayed Ursa, reneged on the offer, and ordered his men to exterminate Clan Wren for their crimes against Mandalore and the Empire. Ursa and the rest of Clan Wren joined forces with the rebels and the Journeyman Protector Fenn Rau, who was able to sneak into the compound and reacquire the rebels' weapons, and fought in a skirmish against Saxon's forces. Saxon's forces were soon overpowered, and Sabine and Saxon engaged in a duel, with Sabine defeating Saxon, but sparing his life. When Saxon tried to kill Sabine, Ursa shot and killed Saxon, ending the skirmish. With Saxon's death, Mandalore would fall into civil war once more, with Sabine vowing to find Mandalore's rightful leader.
As Countess, Ursa led her clan's warriors against the forces of Clan Saxon and the Empire, though they faced overwhelming odds. When Ezra came to Krownest seeking their aid, she initially refused as her own forces were stretched too thin, but after witnessing her daughter prepare to leave she relented and allowed them to take any ships and warriors able and willing to help, citing that she owed the rebels for restoring her family. Her clan's aid allowed some rebels to escape total destruction at the Battle of Atollon and some of them returned the favor by coming to Mandalore to help rescue her husband. Ursa and Tristan were nearly killed by Sabine's resurrected weapon, the Duchess, but the Countess was reunited with her husband and provided technical support on a mission to destroy the weapon.
Ursa Wren was a member of Death Watch, a group of Mandalorian warriors who opposed Mandalore's pacifist government during the Clone Wars. She was the head of Clan Wren and married Alrich. One year into the war, her daughter, Sabine Wren, was born. Ursa later bore a son named Tristan. In 19 BBY, Death Watch—with the help of the Sith Lord Darth Maul and his Shadow Collective—took over Mandalore. Maul slew the leader of Death Watch, Pre Vizsla, and ruled Mandalore for the remainder of the Clone Wars. At the end of the war, Mandalore was besieged by the Galactic Republic, however the Republic was transformed into the Galactic Empire and occupied the planet.
During the Imperial Era, Ursa's daughter Sabine enlisted in Mandalore's Imperial Academy, however she fled the Academy after the Empire forced her to build weapons which they used on the Mandalorian people. One of these weapons was the Arc Pulse Generator known as the "Duchess", which was capable of reacting with the beskar alloy inside Mandalorian armor and incinerating the wearers. When Sabine spoke up against the Empire, Ursa and the rest of her family stood by the Empire and denounced her daughter.
Wren's desertion shamed her family, prompting Ursa to join the Empire. Ursa's husband was made a hostage of Governor Gar Saxon, the Viceroy of Mandalore and the Emperor's Hand. Her son Tristan was forced to join Saxon's Imperial Super Commando. Meanwhile, after working as a bounty hunter for a time, the young Wren joined a group of rebels who operated against the Empire on the planet Lothal, and eventually became part of a larger rebel movement. For years, Ursa did not search for her daughter in order to protect her from Saxon, who was seeking every opportunity to destroy Clan Wren.
Personality and traits
Ursa Wren was a strong and pragmatic leader who was concerned about the well-being of her clan. She was a human woman with black hair and brown eyes. Ursa often wore Mandalorian armor while serving her duties as Countess and leader of Clan Wren. Ursa's desire to preserve her clan led her to acquiesce to the Galactic Empire and their puppet ruler, Viceroy Gar Saxon. Ursa disagreed with the abuses that occurred under Imperial rule but did not publicly voice dissent in order to safeguard her family and clan. Ursa was disappointed and angry with her daughter Sabine's decision to abandon her training at the Imperial Academy of Mandalore since it endangered the interests of Clan Wren and hurt her family. Ursa's husband was held as a hostage of Gar Saxon while her son Tristan was dragooned into the Imperial Super Commandos in order to guarantee Clan Wren's cooperation. For years, Ursa struggled to maintain the image of Clan Wren as a loyal clan to Gar Saxon and his Imperial backers.
While Ursa loved her family including Sabine, she disapproved of her daughter's decision to join the rebellion. Ursa feared that aligning Clan Wren with the rebellion would incur the wrath of the Galactic Empire and Gar Saxon. Ursa regarded her daughter as a naive idealist whose alleged selfishness had endangered the interests of her family and clan. She also regarded Fenn Rau and his Journeyman Protectors as traitors for colluding with the rebellion. Ursa' preoccupation with protecting Clan Wren led Sabine to accuse her of prioritizing politics and power over family. Ursa's pragmatism and desire to protect Sabine led her to attempt to trade the Darksaber and the Jedi Kanan and Ezra to Gar Saxon. After Saxon betrayed their agreement and ordered the destruction of Clan Wren, Ursa and her clan joined forces with the rebels and Fenn Rau to defeat Saxon's Super Commandos. When Saxon tried to kill Sabine, Ursa chose her daughter and killed the Viceroy.
Ursa believed that Mandalore needed to experience chaos in order for a true leader to arise in the wake of Saxon's death. Ursa agreed to help her daughter Sabine find a worthy leader for Mandalore. While she gained a greater sense of respect for Sabine's rebel comrades, Ursa thought that Clan Wren and the Mandalorians were not yet in a position to render assistance to the rebellion.
Ursa also had a deep sense of honor and held the Phoenix Squadron in high esteem for reuniting her back with her daughter Sabine. Though Clan Wren's forces were stretched, she allowed Sabine and Fenn Rau to depart with several volunteers to aid the rebels during the Battle of Atollon. This small Mandalorian contingent helped the rebels to escape into space. Following the battle, Ursa expressed her condolences to Phoenix Leader Hera for the heavy losses sustained by the rebels.
Ursa was a competent commander who led her troops to victory. She was also protective of Sabine and warned that anyone who harmed her daughter risked the wrath of Clan Wren. Though Ursa wanted to lead the strike team to destroy the "Duchess", she relented due to her injuries and allowed Sabine to assume that responsibility. Ursa was also an ally of Lady Bo-Katan Kryze and joined the other Mandalorian clans in recognizing her leadership.
Skills and abilities
Ursa Wren was the matriarch of Clan Wren, and was a capable leader. She knew how to operate twin WESTAR-35 blasters and knew the importance of the darksaber. Ursa was an expert marksman, using her blaster to shoot several Imperial Super Commandos quite accurately, along with Gar Saxon when he tried to murder her daughter, Sabine.
