Background

Sand Saref first appeared in January 8, 1950 in one of the most oft-reprinted Spirit stories.Fact|date=May 2008 She was the Spirit's childhood sweetheart who turned to crime: "I first met Sand when I was a kid in the slums of Central City's lower east side. I remember letting her hang around all the time, even though her father was a cop ... and my father was a has-been fighter. It was the friendship of us kids that drew the two men together. Officer Saref was a square, brave cop ... and he took it upon himself to look after my poor father, who was a patsy for the petty crooks that infested our neighborhood. But one day [Officer Saref interrupted a heist The Spirit's father was on, which resulted in the officer being fatally shot] . The crooks fled, leaving my poor, bewildered father standing over the corpse of his good friend. He did the only thing his punch-battered brain could tell him. He killed himself on the spot. ... Alone now, Sand was caught in the undertow of slum life .... "Fact|date=May 2008 Later, she travelled to Europe. She returned to Central City involved in a conspiracy to smuggle germ warfare weapons, with the aim of selling out her partners and retiring from the game, but the plan goes awry and she flees town after an emotional reunion with The Spirit. She appeared several times after that, always involved in some criminal scheme. There was still always a lingering attraction between her and The Spirit, but it was more nostalgia than anything else, and she was on the wrong side of the law.
