The Hollywood Reporter broke the news on yet another character from Star Wars Rebels. This one has been featured in the some of the packaging that has emerged from Toy Fair 2014. Maniacs, meet Sabine, and she is a Mandalorian. Sabine will be voiced by Tiya Sircar (The Internship). She must be a favorite of producer Dave Filoni's. Take notice of the wolf design on her shoulder!

Press Release (from Lucasfilm): Sabine is a key member of the Ghost crew in Star Wars Rebels. As seen in this special video, featuring early design concepts, animation tests, and final art, Sabine is unlike any Star Wars character – especially in her love for blowing things up and tagging her work with graffiti.

Dave Filoni, executive producer of the animated series, discloses that Sabine is a Mandalorian. She has a great understanding of weapons and combat like few others, and has turned against the Empire. “She is spunky, she’s feisty, she’s got a little bit of attitude,” says actress Tiya Sircar, who is voicing the character. Additionally, Sabine is an artist, which is reflected in her hair, personalized armor, and graffiti calling cards. After the Ghost crew hits the Empire, Sabine makes sure the Empire knows who did it. Concept artist Amy Beth Christenson says that the Star Wars Rebels animation team has created a library of graffiti tags for Sabine, and is constantly adding to it.

In the end, Sabine is a strong, no-nonsense heroine. As Sircar says, “I think she’s kind of an inspiration.”

 
Believe it or not Maniacs there is still another character, a female Twilik, that was featured on the box of "The Ghost" that has yet to emerge. When we will see Hera Syndulla?
