When Princess Sapphire was young, she and her sister teased Prince Albatross on a beach when he was playing with a shell, pretending it was a dragon's mouth. Princess Sapphire tried to take the shell away, ridiculing him all the while about how when she's queen she'll own everything on the beach, but Prince Albatross then spoke to the shell. "Bite her! Bite all her claws off!" he demanded, and the shell followed Albatross' orders. Albatross didn't know that he was an animus at the time. Albatross mentioned that it took days for the blood to wash away on the beach. This was the first time Prince Albatross had used his animus powers. Ever since Princess Sapphire's claws had been bitten off by the shell, she had been unable to hunt or battle, and lived away from the palaces. Albatross says she went slightly insane because of the incident. She lives alone on an island, tended to by quite well-paid servants. Queen Lagoon occasionally visits her, but Albatross has not seen her since he tore her claws out. Albatross assumed that Sapphire would never want to see him again after what he did to her.
When Prince Albatross is giving Fathom lessons on animus magic, he mentions his first experience using animus magic. Later, after the massacre, Fathom mentions that Sapphire would be the only royalty family member left to rule the Kingdom of the Sea, if Queen Pearl had not been found alive.
- A sapphire is a type of gem that is usually blue but can be pink, purple, black, yellow or green. It is a specimen of corundum, with rubies and padparadschas also being species.
- Sapphire is the second known dragon with no claws, the first being the MudWing in Burn's weirdling room; however, she was unnaturally declawed.
- Although Sapphire is mentioned, there is no dialogue between her and any other dragon other than Albatross' retelling.
