Really, any story about Sara has to start with the artifact to which she is host for…the Witchblade. In a time long before the Earth even took shape around the sun, two primal entities were engaged in a violent and eternal struggle against one another. The Angelus, a Lord of Order, and The Darkness, a Lord of Chaos. Not their real names, of course, but as close as a human could come to understanding it. The Angelus identified more with feminine energies, championing Order, and Light. The Darkness, with male energies, championing Chaos and Darkness.

Eventually, after untold eons, the two came to a temporary truce, and as a symbol of that truce, they melded their energies together, forming a new entity…the Witchblade. Like the Darkness, the Witchblade identifies as a male entity…but as a balance, it requires a female host to bond with to utilize his powers. Welcome in neither the realms of Order or Chaos, the Witchblade was cast into the mortal sphere, where it crash-landed on the Earth, falling in the same meteor shower as that meteor which Vandal Savage would discover, though the two landed in very different areas.

The site of the Witchblade's landing was investigated by a primitive tribal woman, Una. The Witchblade bonded with her, and she became the first Bearer. Throughout the ensuing years, others would bear the Witchblade in turn. A princess named Raquel was a bearer in Egypt near the year 1,000 B.C., during which time she allied with the Amazons of Bana-Mighdall to stop a prince from gaining immortality and powers from an Egyptian goddess. A peasant girl from Greece in the 7th Century B.C. found it atop Mount Olympus, and became a bearer. A Roman woman was gifted it by druids. And so on. Every couple centuries, the Witchblade would select a new Bearer, these women becoming heroes throughout history.

In 1945, the Witchblade's Bearer was a Russian woman named Tasya Federova. She used her powers in defense of others during the siege on Leningrad. But the Judgement of the Spectre forced the Witchblade into a state of hibernation, where it would rest, throughout the remainder of the twentieth century. During that time, billionaire Kenneth Irons made a point of trying to track down the Witchblade, having found references to it and its power scattered through history and mythology. While he was successful in locating it, he could not access its powers (since it was in hibernation).

Of course, this is when Sara comes into the picture. Born November 18, 1990, she was born and raised in New York City. Her childhood was uneventful…grew up, went to school, had the normal teenage drama through high school. Upon graduation, however, she decided that she wanted to follow in her father's footsteps. Her college classes were taken with an eye towards entry into the NYPD, and soon after graduation, she joined the force, working her way up to become a homicide detective. It was there that she met her partner, and the two began to investigate Irons.

During the investigation, Irons was conducting an auction. Supposedly to sell the Witchblade, the auction was actually a plan of Irons to try to unlock its powers by having multiple people try it on. During the auction, Sara's partner was discovered, and was beaten, and about to be shot when Sara threw herself between the gunman and her partner. Shot, she would have perished, save that the Witchblade awoke, and chose Sara as its new Bearer, using its powers to heal her. Since then, Sara has continued to work as an NYPD detective, while also learning more about the powers of the Witchblade, and slowly being drawn into a world of magic and superpowers.
