    One of the Knigts of Ren theories that I never thought much of was the idea that they were started by or named after Sabine Wren. However, the trailers for Season 3 have made me revisit this theory. In the trailers we see Sabine in posession of the Darksaber, and the return of Bo-Katan Kryze from the Clone Wars.

    The Darksaber is an ancient lightsaber (at least as old as the Old Republic) and possibly even much older than that (it was said that it was stolen from a Jedi Temple during the Old Republic). Given it's name, appearance, and property of absorbing light, I think it is likely that the Darksaber was made by a dark side user with dark side force energy. If it is indeed a dark side artifact, it is possible that it may corrupt whomever wields it. This idea fits what we know about the saber; instead of using it the Jedi stored it in a temple (for fear of it's corruptive effects), and those we know who wielded it were Maul and Clan Vizsla who chose war over peace and hunted Jedi. I think it's possible that Sabine will be corrupted by the Darksaber and begin to lose her "humanity".

    Bo-Katan Kryze is a Mandalorian and former member of Death Watch, a violent and deadly Mandalorian group with proficiency in killing Jedi who allied themselves with darkside force users like Count Dooku and Maul. She also led the Nite Owls, an elite unit within Death Watch.

    Putting these two things together, I think it is possible that Bo-Katan puts Sabine in touch with the Nite Owls or other members of Death Watch. When Sabine falls to the dark side she enlists these Mandalorians under her leadership as mercenaries and bounty hunters, naming her group the Knights of Wren. Over the years the spelling changes and we have the Knights of Ren.

    One thing to consider in evaluating this theory is that it is never stated that all the Knights of Ren are force users. Also, in the forceback sequence it does not appear that most of them, or any other than Kylo, wield lightsabers. My theory goes that they work as a mercenery group until Kylo witnesses their skill in fighting force users and assumes mastery of them. This theory would explain why they appear to have conventional weapons, but are still useful to Kylo since they have expertise and history in fighting Jedi.

    Thoughts?

    Edit: No Sabine isn't a force user. Usually when we see people corrupted by the dark side they are force users who are corrupted by their own force usage of the dark side. The Darksaber however already has the force energy in it. The force influences all life, therefore the dark side force power from the Darksaber would be able to corrupt Sabine.

    Yeah when you said, "Falls to the dark side" I found that part of the theory to not make too much sense unless,, like you said, they are hiding some sort of fs in her similar to Rey. i like that kind of a theory, though, but someone as powerful as Ben wouldn't truly join those knights, then, would he
    ?

    I don't think an ancient artifact imbued with serious dark side energy would need someone to be force sensitive to corrupt them. That could be why Clan Vizla broke off from the other Mandalorians when they all chose pacifism.

    Ben didn't join the KOR, he mastered them. They are a tool he uses. Their skill and experience in fighting Jedi could prove extremely useful to him.

    The Lando comic proves your point.

    Overall, your theory is really interesting and gives the "Knights of Wren" theory a heck of a lot more credit!

    Given that Sabine's mom was in Death Watch and she has a Nite Owl helmet, maybe Bo-Katan just puts Sabine in touch with her mom, who then does all of the above?

    That is...uncomfortably imaginable; IMO, it doesn't seem like it'd make a good story (this point at least), but it could make a lot of sense...

    Both Ezra and Sabine being tempted by the dark side? The idea is interesting but unlikely.

    I prefer the speculation that some Mandalorians -including family of Sabine- work for the Empire, which will make Sabine conflicted about her role in the Rebellion.
