[[WMG: Sabetha is inspired by [[MasterandCommander Diana Villiers]].]]

Crazy, witty, doesn't play by the rules, wears trousers, swears almost first thing we meet her, unusual coloring (red hair/black hair and blue eyes), good posture, fond of slightly dangerous physical activity (climbing on roofs/riding and driving), and has a habit of running off to foreign countries and leaving behind a celibate protagonist who is eventually reunited with her. In ''The Hundred Days'' [[MasterandCommander Diana Villiers]] [[spoiler:drowns when she drives a carriage off a bridge]] and in ''The Republic of Thieves'' [[spoiler:Locke is told that Sabetha fell into a canal and drowned]]. Diana's even described as "gentlemanly."

The world is clearly another terrestrial planet with three moons, where a past civilization known as the Eldren left behind gigantic engineering works impossible to modify or duplicate, raising entire islands of a substance hard as diamond. Yet the world has humans, horses, dogs, cats and other Earth animals in human cities, while the wilderness host a dangerous and hardly known fauna. The humans had to get there from ''somewhere'' - the original civilization might have been an Earth colonizing mission which evolved over millenia first into an Empire and then in a quasi-feudal world after the breakup of the said Empire.

Even the word "Therin" might have been a corruption of "Terrian".

** It's explicitly established in Lies [[spoiler:that she was one of the Gentlemen Bastards before even Locke became one, and the "death" Locke witnessed in the preview chapter was during his time at Shades' Hill. So as far as we know, she's very much alive at the end of Red Seas.]]

* Sabetha isn't dead. The prologue of ''Republic of Thieves'' takes place before Locke was bought by Father Chains, and also before Sabetha was bought by Father Chains. Since we already know she was/is a Gentleman Bastard, it's impossible that she drowned before leaving Shades' Hill. Most likely it was a coverup for her purchase by Chains.

**I never got the impression [[spoiler:that Sabetha was actually dead; only that little Locke believed she was.]] And I may as well mention that the original WMG was {{Jossed}}, though I'm too lazy to go and find the link.

*Though I highly doubt that Lynch went to all that trouble to create such a mysterious and interesting character just to [[spoiler:kill her off in such a [[DroppedABridgeOnHim lousy, anticlimatic manner.]] Her red hair that she was so set on hiding has to be a Chekov's gun, and it's rather mysterious that she "died" in a manner that had so few witnesses.]]
