Sancha had been the
spoiled and petted daughter of the Duke of Kordava, until Zaporavo tore
her screaming from the flaming caravel his pirates had plundered.
She learned what it was to be a buccaneer's plaything, supple enough to
bend without breaking, living where other women had died. She soon
even came to enjoy the lifestyle, the battle, pillage, murder, and
flight. Soon Zaporavo would talk to her of his plans even when he
was silent about them to his own crew. She even swore with
proficiency from her association with the pirate crews.
Nudity bothered her little, and she often wore nothing more than a pair of sandles and a sheer kirtle on deck. She was nude throughout most of the story, "The Pool of the Black One".
