Trials Of The Darksaber

Star Wars: Rebels Among the items recovered from Maul’s hdeout is the Darksaber, the weapon of the first Mandalorian Jedi that later became a symbol of power that once unified the Mandalorians. Since Sabine found it, it is expected that she will wield it to unite Mandalore once again, but she has not interest in doing so. This means she’s appalled when Kanan and Hera suggest that she take up the role that is expected of her as the finder of the blade. Kanan takes Sabine to begin her training, enlisting Ezra’s help as well, finding it difficult to teach a student with no connection to the Force. Sabine thinks the leading the Mandalorians is a task for which she’ll never be ready; Kanan realizes that forgiving herself for her own past is the task at hand.
