Sabrina still remembered the feeling as her legs had been forcefully removed. The seething pain as Chalon had carried her to his castle and fitted her with new mechanical apparatus still lingered. The happiness she felt when she walked again for the first time was that of an innocent child, and she had yet to repay him for his kindness. Now Sabrina made for the castle, carried by the weapons that were her surrogate limbs. She knew that even if she were headed towards death, it was better than continuing to live with an unresolved debt.
Sabrina is an Czech, English, German, and Italian feminine name. Latinized form of Hafren (Welsh; Old Welsh: Habren), the original Welsh name of the River Severn. According to Geoffrey of Monmouth, Hafren or Sabrina was the name of a princess who was drowned in the Severn. Supposedly the river was named for her, but it is more likely that her name was actually derived from that of the river, which is of uncertain meaning, possibly "slow-moving" or "boundary". According to legend, Sabrina lives in the river, which reflects her mood; she rides in a chariot and dolphins and salmon swim alongside her. The later story suggests that the legend of Sabrina could have became intermingled with old stories of a river goddess or nymph.
