Ursa Wren was formerly a member of the Death Watch, a group of terrorist Mandalorians led by Pre Vizsla until the day where Darth Maul killed Vizsla and became the new leader.
Role in the Series
When Sabine returned to Krownest for recruit the Mandalorians, Ursa almost had Sabine place into a cell before she stopped upon seeing the Darksaber. Catching sight of the saber, Ursa agreed to talk with Sabine and her Jedi friends but asked that she turned in their Lightsabers. She later took Sabine aside for a private conversation, and after learning that she had not won the Darksaber from Maul expressed her belief that no one would follow Sabine's lead.
Ursa later responded to a transmission from Gar Saxon, and offered him the two Jedi in exchange for Sabine's safety. Ursa delivered the Darksaber to Saxon who subsequently contanna to death all the Clan Wren. Saxon attempted to kill Ursa by hindrance, but Sabine intervened. After Sabine was defeated Saxon and refused to finish it, Saxon tried to kill Sabine by hindrance but Ursa intervened quickly and killed Saxon. With the death of Saxon, Ursa realized that it was high time for Mandalore to fight against the Empire.
However, Clan Saxon, backed by the Empire, engages Clan Wren in a civil war, leaving Ursa's troops strained to protect whatever territory they had control of, leaving her unable to spare many troops to aid Ezra when he comes seeking help as Thrawn had located Atollon and had the Rebels there at his mercy. However, because Ezra had helped her and Sabine, Ursa owes him some sort of repayment, and allows as many loyal troops and fighters who would volunteer to aid Ezra and Sabine with saving the surviving Rebels and get them off of Atollon.
- "Ursa" is Latin for bear.
- According to the Rebels Recon fon "Legacy of Mandalore", Ursa was present in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode "Shades of Reason" on the day where Maul killed Pre Vizsla among the members of the Death Watch.
- Ursa's armor shares its design-though not coloration-with that of Rook Kast, a subordinate of Gar Saxon's in the Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir comics, and some fans believe that Ursa might indeed be Kast until her name was revealed.
