Sabine owes no loyalties to the Kingdom of Rynmere. She was born and raised in Rharne - home of good parties, great beer, and even better people. As a child, Sabine fell in love with the constant celebration and the wild freedom that seemed to permeate the city. The energy and excess was liberating, and she grew up with strong feelings of loyalty towards her birthplace.
At age 15, however, her parents moved Sabine and her younger brother to the city of Andaris with the hope of building a more prosperous life. Sabine's father was always searching for an adventure, and he had heard tales of wealthy lands within Rynmere that were filled with coin and nobles and opportunity.
At first, the Qe'azour family was happy in Andaris. Sabine's father opened his own Rharne-style brewery with money borrowed from House Andaris. Sabine, who inherited her father's boldness and spirit for adventure, quickly took to the new city despite being pulled away from friends and kin back in Rharne. She was particularly fascinated by the city's castle. To this day, she remembers thinking of it as one of the most beautiful buildings she had ever seen.
She still retains that fascination, but can no longer see its beauty.
Although Sabine's father was just a dreamer when he moved the Qe'azour family to Andaris, he turned out to be quite good at brewing beer. Unfortunately, he was terrible at managing the business itself. Thanks in part to his biqaj heritage and his Rharne background, he took more pleasure in spending coin and drinking his own beer with friends than in saving money and paying back his benefactors. As the arcs passed, he quietly fell deeper and deeper into debt. Sabine discovered the extent of his debt one cold morning during the 714th arc when the city's knights hauled her father away, despite her own agonized pleas for mercy.
He was sentenced to debt-based slavery for House Andaris.
After her father's enslavement, Sabine grew angry: angry at her father, angry at the Noble Houses, and angry at those who practice or support slavery. She has privately developed very liberal views, believing that all
mortals should be freed from (real or perceived) captivity or enslavement.
She has begun to think this also includes freedom from Rynmere's monarchy.
As of Ashan 716, Sabine works at the Rynmere Gazette
, and supports her mother and brother in her father's absence. Her mother is slowly fading and stays in bed most days, while her brother does his best to avoid being home. To keep her mind off her now-broken family, Sabine spends much of her time either requesting new work assignments or frequenting The Blacksmith Arms
