Princess Sapphire was an adult female SeaWing who lost all of her claws to a clamshell enchanted by Albatross. She was confirmed in Darkstalker (Legends) to be insane, and, according to Albatross, she "swam like a feeble old duck."
When young SeaWing princesses Sapphire and Lagoon were dragonets, they teased Albatross while he was playing with a clamshell. Sapphire attempted to take the clamshell away, taunting Albatross and claiming that one day, everything would be hers, even "stupid beach trash" such as the clamshell. Albatross was not aware of his animus powers at the time, and therefore never expected his verbal order to actually be followed, but he commanded the shell to "Bite her! Bite all her claws off!"
Since that day, Sapphire had been unable to hunt, battle, or swim efficiently, and avoided the SeaWing palaces, stationed on a remote island with the company of particularly well-paid servants. It was mentioned that Sapphire developed both insanity and a probable hatred for Albatross ever since the incident on the beach. Queen Lagoon was the only known dragon who ever visited her.
Albatross recites this tragic story of himself and Sapphire to Fathom.

"Sapphire, of course, could never be queen after that- a dragon with no claws cannot hunt or fight, and as for swimming... well, who looks like a feeble old duck now. She went a little mad, I'm afraid. Now she is kept on an island far away from everyone else, tended by two very well-paid servants. Lagoon visits her occasionally, but I never have. I assume Sapphire would prefer never to see me again." - Albatross to Fathom about Sapphire.
- 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 tower; however, she was unnaturally declawed.
- Although Sapphire is mentioned, there is no dialogue between her and any other dragon other than Albatross' retelling.
