The once gorgeous blond Sabrina's beauty has faded; following her harrowing journey to the colonies much weight she did loose, she is somewhat gaunt. She has a heart shaped face with aquiline nose and green eyes, her imperious manner remains, the tilt to her chin challenging. A scar runs along her right collarbone, disappearing under the sleeve of her gown.
Initial Impression of Personality
Her eyes radiate worldly knowledge of dark pleasures, she possesses a cynical turn to her lips. Her looks no longer enthral, yet perhaps reveal ravages of past days.
Following the discovery of her independent wealth, Sabrina up and left to make a new life for herself in the colonies.
During the ocean voyage she caught the interest of one her fellow travellers eyes, largely for her self proclaimed wealth. Blithely Sabrina thought little of the sudden friendship with the experienced traveller, who filled her head with stories of the entrepreneurial new world, with promises to ‘set her on the right course’. Unfortunately for Sabrina he was a con-artist. Entrusting him with her purse, what a high time he showed her at first, till of a sudden he vanished, and she discovered herself evicted from her accommodations, near penniless on the streets of New York.
Wooing a Captain of a ship returning to London (Captain Jonathan Oates), she convinced him that she could pay her fare one returned to England, so it was that Sabrina found herself yet again catering to a mans whims on an ever so long journey back ‘home’... the scars of the journey physical. Revenge she swore upon him, the filthy bastard, and revenge she took.
As she stepped upon the dock at Plymouth, a ruckus was arising below decks as the Captain was found a beastly shade of green, poisoned, dead. She slipped away into the busy thoroughfare, a thin smile upon her lips.
Sabrina forms an unexpected closeness with Rochester, a friendship that causes her discomfort for the very fact that he is male, a species she inherently distrusts.
Enemies she understands, and feels far more comfortable about the passions she feels towards Nigel Harrington after he snubs her not once but twice. Excitement floods her veins in a near sensuous manner as she plots her revenge upon him.
Meanwhile, attending the regatta with Rochester, she discovers that the anonymous man she'd stolen money from at the baths is none other than Merriweather. She draws him aside to the captains cabin and works humiliations upon him.
Sabrina befriends Clarice, and encourages the girl to plead with Nigel to debut in the Xmas season. The girl having been advised that Nigel does not like Sabrina for some foolish 'male' reason, she take a place as a secretive confidante.
Satisfied that the ground work is laid for her revenge in season III, she carries on to her house at Rochford. The boy is there, her step son, Sabrina continues as always to ignore him.
She pens letters to Rochester, of a type others wouldn't receive from her. For whatever reason she is more open with Rochester, foolish as that might be. She advises him of her concerns for her safety, and he give her advice on how to solicit the services of a bodyguard simply.
Despite receiving a invitation to stay at the Castle, Sabrina takes the finest accommodation available at the local Inn. Preferring, as is her wont, independence. She has not paid for the rooms, credit works good for her.
