Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo)

A Mandalorian warrior and graffiti artist, Imperial Academy dropout, former bounty hunter, and Ahsoka's former Padawan with expert knowledge of weapons and explosives, Sabine has been through a lot over the years. Once a dedicated Imperial officer, Sabine quit when one of her weapons was used against the Mandalorians. 

A fantastic fighter, Sabine has a wonderful artistic side to herself. The series appears to have her taking a break from combat with the Empire fallen but donning her armor once more to help Ahsoka out and wielding a lightsaber along the way. 

Hera Syndulla (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)

An ace pilot, the green-skinned Twi'lek started as a smuggler and ended up becoming a Rebel general. She was close to former Jedi Kanan Jarrus and even bore a son. 

The series has Hera seemingly out of the fight and raising her child, but, like Sabine is pulled into aiding Ahsoka and still flying her classic ship, the Ghost, as only she can.
