The story of Saphir begins before her. Not as far back as The Garden, or The Great Flood, but rather in the early summer of the late 90's in the desert of Nevada. It was hot, and the last of spring grass had shriveled up, yet there was a young, pretty girl who sat in the middle of it, praying up to an empty sky. The warm wind carried the sweet scent of honey suckle and the sweeter sound of her voice upwards. While her lonely prayer didn't reach God, it reached the ears of an angel.
"In the beginning, there was sin. Then there was love, and I chose love."
When Saphir was young, this was how her father explained her origin to her.
Saphir doesn't remember the fallen angel very well, other than he spoke of the story with a great fondness. "Your mother was from a line of banished men, and spent all her time roaming the earth, all alone. I remember seeing her from above, always wondering how she would look if she was happy. She often prayed, and while God didn't hear her, I did." Saphir could just picture the woman, all alone, looking up for comfort in the celestial bodies above her head. "No matter how hard I was told to focus on The Most Important One, my mind would always wander back to your mother." Saphir would lay her head in her father's lap, listenting patiently as he would hesitate to finish the story. "When we were discovered, your mother had to leave this earth. I was told to stay in this mortal coil, and to take care of the life I created. It was meant to be a punishment, but I wouldn't change what I did, because I got you." His hands didn't feel heavenly, they were calloused, and ran through Saphir's hair with little consideration of her tender headness. "I told all the assemblies that too. Strip me of whatever power you want, reduce me to nothing but flesh and bone, as long as my little Saphir is safe with me and I can raise her."
She always liked how he ended the story on that note.
Saphir has a very head strong personality and it is difficult to sway her one way or another. It is very difficult for her to be vulnerable, and she harbors deep cynicism towards herself that borders on self hatred. However she is quick to pick up on responsibility, wanting to fix the issues she has and that others have.
Growing up an only child wasn't easy. It was pretty lonely when her father was at work in town. And it was scary when the idea of meeting others was introduced to her after years of her father telling her that the world would eat her up if she ventured too far without him.
