Sara and Orico are a devoted couple but do not have any children. After many tries to conceive an heir for Orico including attempts with other women, Orico is persuaded to allow Martou and Dondo dy Jironal to attempt to sire a child by Sara. These efforts continued for a year and only ended when Sara threatened to kill herself. While Martou was polite about his efforts, Dondo took pleasure in humiliating Sara.
Immediately before Iselle's wedding, Sara, along with a physician and Archdivine Mendenal, conceals Orico's death to prevent Iselle's marriage from being potentially invalid because she had become a ward of Martou dy Jironal.
Sara maintains her chambers on the top floor of Ias’s Tower.
She is in her mid-thirties, her earlier prettiness now faded and worn. She enjoys the court minstrels and singers, but remains aloof from court society.
