Biography

Sarah's profile
“ A magician able to conjure ancient and undocumented magic. She travels with Luc. ”

Sarah is a kind-hearted magician skilled in a number of rare and unusual forms of magic including teleportation, summoning and illusion magics. She was born bearing a Flowing Rune and her natural magical abilities led to her persecution from people who hated and feared her. When interested parties within the Holy Kingdom of Harmonia heard of her powers, she was kidnapped but even there the priests feared her talents and so she was forced to live in isolation at the temple.

When she was 7 years old, Luc discovered her presence in Crystal Valley and helped her to escape, taking her to Magician's Island. There, she lived under the tutelage of both Leknaat and Luc. Luc's actions inspired a deep devotion from Sarah, which would develop into love as the years passed. It is this love and devotion that drove Sarah to aid Luc in his attempt to overcome the burden of the True Runes, an attempt to save his soul.

Despite her willingness to aid Luc in his plans, she harboured heavy guilt towards the loss of life his plans entailed. This led her to attempt to limit casualties when she could, such as her attempt to warn the Karaya Clan to abandon their village. She never hesitated to help the object of her devotions, however and fought to protect him at the Ceremonial Site in the final actions of the War of the Champions. Following Luc's defeat, she refused to abandon him in the collapsing ruins, citing her devotion as well as her culpability in causing the war. She would die holding Luc in the collapse of the Ceremonial Site, lonely but content.
