Sasha Banks' character in 'The Mandalorian' is a badass warrior.

The five-time WWE Raw Women's Champion made her acting debut as Koska Reeves in the second season of The Mandalorian. For those curious, Koska is a Mandalorian warrior who appeared in "Chapter 11: The Heiress" and the Season 2 finale, "Chapter 16: The Rescue."

In Season 2, she and Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) worked alongside Mandalorian warrior Axe Woves and the titular character, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal). The pair later joined Din Djarin on a mission to rescue Grogu and claim Gideon's light cruiser for Bo-Katan's efforts to take back Mandalore as well as to reclaim the Darksaber.

Koska Reeves returns in Season 3 of 'The Mandalorian.'

Sadly, things didn't pan out too great for Bo-Katan in the Season 2 finale, and eventually, she and Koska split. Many fans thought we would never see her again, but Koska returns in "Chapter 22: Guns for Hire" as part of Axe Woves' crew of mercenary pirates. She watches as Bo-Katan fights Woves and reclaims the leadership of the group.

Koska appears in the following episode, "Chapter 23: The Spies," and volunteers alongside Din Djarin, Grogu, Axe Woves, Paz Vizsla, and The Armorer to explore the surface of Mandalore to make sure it's safe.

Catch the Season 3 finale of The Mandalorian on April 19, only on Disney Plus.
