Though her friends left to return to the rebellion, Wren remained with her family so she could find a way to free Mandalore.
Wren worked as a bounty hunter alongside her friend Ketsu Onyo before being recruited by Captain Hera Syndulla and the Jedi Kanan Jarrus to join their rebel crew aboard the starship Ghost.
Together, the crew fought against the Empire and used Wren's art as a symbol of hope.
Since the crew of the Ghost were running low on fuel and supplies, they decided to steal a weapons shipment from a spaceport on Garel to sell it to Vizago before it fell into the hands of the Empire.
For the mission, all but Syndulla boarded Star Commuter 2000 shuttle ST-45 and arranged for Imperial Minister Maketh Tua to rely on Wren's translating skills in her negotiations with Aqualish arms dealer Amda Wabo, by preventing Tua's borrowed droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO, from helping her.
She initially wanted nothing to do with it, but Jarrus and Fenn Rau, a Mandalorian Protector of Concord Dawn who joined the rebellion, convinced her to wield it so she could unite the Mandalorian people and bring them into the rebellion.
