|“||I'm a Spellman and I will always be a Spellman. And I'll fight him until my last dying breath.||”|
Sabrina Spellman is the main character on Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
She was initially believed to be the daughter of Edward and Diana Spellman, making her half half-mortal and half-witch. However, it was later revealed that her actual father is the Dark Lord.
Despite not being a full witch, Madame Satan notes that Sabrina has the potential to become the most powerful witch of her generation. After completing her Dark Baptism, Sabrina's powers were magnified to far greater levels than ever before. Most notably, she summoned hellfire to burn the Greendale Thirteen, a feat only three other witches have ever been able to do.
She is portrayed by Kiernan Shipka.
Sabrina was born to fallen angel Lucifer Morningstar and mortal Diana Spellman, however her legal father is Diana’s husband High Priest witch Edward Spellman. Diana and Edward had trouble conceiving a child and went to the Dark Lord for help, Diana soon became pregnant but the Dark Lord was somehow able to impregnate her with his child instead of Edward’s, who was believed by all to be Sabrina’s biological father. Three days after her birth, Diana had Sabrina given a Holy Baptism with her aunt, Hilda Spellman, as a witness. A day later, Edward had signed Sabrina's name into the Book of the Beast with her other aunt, Zelda Spellman, as a witness. Not long after, Sabrina's parents would die in a plane crash, leaving her in the care of Hilda and Zelda, though Diana's remaining family apparently tried, unsuccessfully, to obtain custody of Sabrina.
Sabrina is of medium height with a petite physique. She has wavy, short blonde hair, clear skin, sparkling green eyes, and a delicate figure. She mostly forgoes makeup and typically dresses somewhat conservatively but comfortably so; she is not however above wearing eye-catching and/or alluring attire if the occasion calls for it. Since writing her name in the Book of the Beast and being empowered by the Dark Lord, Sabrina's look sports a similar appearance to her comic book counterpart, where her hair has become pure white, and her wardrobe and makeup preferences have also changed to reflect the more provocative look of the Weird Sisters. She did however go back to wearing her conservative clothes.
Having grown up in the world of mortals, Sabrina is the polar opposite of pure-blood witches in numerous ways. She has a very strong moral compass and does not look down on mortals as inferior or on familiars for that matter. Her family and friends are by far the most important to her as well as her fierce sense of independence and belief in freedom of choice, traits which led her to reject the teachings of the Church of Night. She is quick to question witch traditions and will work tirelessly to find ways around the more barbaric practices.
Sabrina is an uncommonly kind, thoughtful, caring, compassionate and spirited person, an unwaveringly loyal friend and a loving girlfriend. She is quite popular in mortal school but generally slighted in magic school. An ardent feminist who believes in the advancement of women and girls in society, she has no qualms over confronting anyone who demeans her female friends or indeed any female student. She lives daily with guilt over not being able to tell her friends about her true nature but has learned to cope with it. Her dedication to her friends and to an extent a mild form of arrogance has led her to make bad and even reckless decisions that have unfortunately cost her greatly.
Sabrina loves her family very much and is very close to her aunts and her cousin. She is doted on by Hilda and often butts heads with Zelda over witch matters and Zelda's zealotry but ultimately the two are still close. She is quick to anger if her parents or family, in general, are insulted as well as her half-breed status.
Sabrina possesses incredibly strong willpower and sense of self, enabling her to resist psychological torture and pain effectively as was seen during her Harrowing by the Sisters when she repeatedly withstood their attempts to break her.
