Sarah Fear (originally Jane Hardy) was the wife of Thomas Fear and the first to be possessed by the original Sarah Burns.
Sarah Fear was originally born as Jane Hardy in 1877. She was best friends with the hot tempered Sarah Burns. When both girls were 21 Sarah's grandmother arranged a marriage for her with Thomas Fear. Sarah was furious. Jane was going on a trip to London to find a husband. The two girls had what the other wanted, so they switched places. Jane Hardy became Sarah Burns, then married Thomas Fear and became the ill-fated Sarah Fear.
Sarah had a heart shaped face with soft brown eyes and flaming red hair.
