With the introduction of artistic Mandalorian teen, Sabine Wren, into canon, the Star Wars universe broadened its horizons. Until Star Wars Rebels, I don’t know that there was any character, canon or Legends, that could have been considered a practicing artist like Sabine is; certainly no one who had such an unabashed love for (traditionally) feminine colors like pink and purple! Sabine, gun-slinging Mando that she is, reminds me that Star Wars doesn’t have to be all about blasters and lightsabers; it can also be about beauty and creativity.
And sometimes, as in Sabine, blasters, beauty, and creativity can overlap in an explosive (and totally Star Wars) way.
