Sapphire

Information

Sapphire is the eldest daughter of the Corandum family. Her father Ogust and mother Ribin were evidently not exactly model parents and Sapphire's childhood was an unhappy one. Yearning for freedom and liberation, the statesman Paz took her under his wing and mentored her in the way of magic, turning her into a powerful sorceress. Using these newfound powers, she got revenge on her parents by transforming them into the beasts By and Peridot.

Sapphire's defining trait is probably her sheer lust for power. Her ambition is to rule over everything and to be the master of the strongest magic there is. One can assume her unhappy childhood and disobedient behaviour is what made her so arrogant and so keen to have power over other people. However, it's possible her arrogance can lead to her downfall; although she actually manages to achieve universal conquest in two of her stories (that's more than Rquo ever achieved!), one of her Original Mode endings shows her wishing for magic more powerful than she can control, and it implies it destroys her. Probably non-canon, though.

She's rude and arrogant and is brimming with self-confidence, so her relationships with other characters is pretty strained; it's likely she focuses so much on gaining power she just doesn't give a damn about friendship.
She doesn't hide her hatred for her parents By and Peridot, and since she intended her spell to completely erase their memories, she clearly wants nothing to do with them. When Peridot actually remembers her, Sapphire is incensed.
Despite their entirely different personalities, Sapphire adores her younger sister Thyst, though she clearly doesn't express it very well. She has no qualms with using force to take the Secret Stone from her own sibling.
Her mentor Paz is held in the utmost respect, and is quite possibly Sapphire's only weakness. She is always hesitant to battle him, even if it means acquiring all the Secret Stones, and she would follow him to the ends of the earth. Their bond is best demonstrated in her Game Boy ending, where she sacrifices her wish for Paz's wellbeing.

Sapphire and Thyst are daughters of the Corundum family, their parents wealthy merchants connected to a profitable pipe trade, and of high social status. Sapphire took an interest in magic, but her parents sought only greed and worldly desires from its usage, which Sapphire disagreed with [i think!]. As a result, every day was filled with bickering.

Despite these quarrels, she found time to become acquaintances with Paz and quickly became a pupil of his. Meeting Paz on her own gave Sapphire confidence, the feeling that she had control over her life once more... This event prompted Sapphire to master the ways of magic, until she could gain absolute power.

Her hobby is nail art.

Notes


Sapphire is found at the Agate Mountains, where the statesmens' floating island is in clear view. The arcade map mistranslates the location as the "Agert mountain range".

Her family name is translated differently between the Game Boy and PlayStation versions, but never accurately. If we're keeping up with the gem theme, it should be translated as "Corundum".

Stories

Beginner Mode (PSX)

Sapphire undermines your Puchi Carat skills.

Arcade Mode (PSX)

Sapphire kicks the butt of everyone in her path.

Original Mode (PSX)

Sapphire screws the rules - she has Secret Stones!

Game Boy

Sapphire aims to conquer the Earth, but ends up getting soppy instead.

Attack Pattern


Sapphire's attack pattern is to fill five rows on the right, in contrast to Paz. Covering the middle row gives her an extra layer of defence, and puts pressure on the opponent. Although not as specialist as Paz, it's a strong pattern that can make for speedy victories.
When facing Sapphire as an opponent, although she doesn't make as much vertical coverage as Paz, it remains an uphill battle. Attack from the inside corner, if possible, and work your way out.
