Sarah Tanaraq is a mundy woman that was Bigby's lover when he left Fabletown.


Not much is known about Sarah's past, but she lived in a remote cabin in the Alaskan wilderness and worked as a horse groomer. She took Bigby in when he came to Alaska and eventually became lovers. She knew little of his past except that he had children from another woman, but was unaware of his true nature. She often took care of him by giving him food and whiskey.

She was visiting her family one day and when she came home, she was surprised to see her lover's guest Vincent Jagatbehari for she expected to see the woman Bigby loved to take him away from her. When she talked with Vincent, she believed that Bigby was some sort of government agent and that Vincent was to take him. When she learned that Bigby's last lover was another reason for him leaving, she teared up and told Vincent to take him quickly. That night, Bigby broke up with her and it was less than amicable and left with Vincent. A week later, she and her horse returned to the village where her family lived and started over.


She deeply cared for Bigby, but always knew that she was just a rebound; she knew that he was still in love with the other woman and would quickly go back to her if she wanted him back. She didn't like his constant drinking, but she had little voice on what he did and often brought him whiskey in order to help him forget his last lover.

She's quite insightful for she believed the reason why Bigby excessively drank was because he's trying to forget a woman, which is partially true for Bigby was drinking in order to forget Snow's scent. She also sensed that Bigby was very dangerous even though he treated her kindly.

Bigby stated that she served as only a distraction to keep him from thinking of Snow, but he did feel guilty when he broke up with her.


  • Her surname Tanaraq means "Granddaughter of the Tundra" in Inuit.
  • Given her surname and appearance, Sarah is likely Inuit.
