Sabina Pleasure is a fifteen year old girl who becomes Alex Rider's close friend when they meet at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in the novel Skeleton Key. She is described as having dark hair, bright blue eyes and freckles.Biography

Skeleton KeyEdit

Alex is working as a ball boy whilst Sabina is working as a ball girl at the Wimbledon Tennis Championship (at the beginning of the novel), and they became instant friends. However Sabina soon became suspicious when Alex has to leave the tennis championships early, and even more so when he then dissapears for weeks on a mission later on the book.  Sabina invites him on a holiday with her and her parents in Cornwall after the Wimbledon Championship is over.  When they are there, things take a turn for the worse and Alex finds his life on the line again when he is being chased by while attempting to surf the “The Cribber" (a massive wave).  Alex is knocked out by the wave and Sabina does CPR on him. After the incident Sabina kisses him saying that he is a cuter version of James Bond.

Eagle Strike Edit

In Eagle Strike, Sabina’s father is nearly killed by a bomb in their holiday home in France, targeted by Damian Cray as he was writing an article about him. When Alex later insists that the explosion wasn’t an accident and tries to tell her about his involvement with MI6, Sabina refuses to believe him, leaving after an argument.

Sabina is later kidnapped by Damian Cray, who uses her as ransom to force Alex to give him the flash-drive he had stolen that would allow Cray’s plot to be carried out. After Cray hijacks Air Force One, Sabina helps Alex kill him and deactivates the nuclear missiles Cray had dispatched. Sabina later catches up with Alex and tells him her parents wish to move to San Francisco, due to her father being offered a job there. Before she leaves, she gives Alex a brief kiss under a bridge.

Snakehead Edit

Sabina appears briefly at the end of Snakehead for a "surprise" Christmas visit, the novel ending with them entering Alex’s house together.

Crocodile TearsEdit

In the book Crocodile Tears, Alex and Sabina are on holiday together once more, but in Scotland. Sabina's father, Edward Pleasure, is invited by the main antagonist of the book, Desmond McCain, who Edward was writing a report on, to a party on December the 31st to celebrate the New Year. All the profits of the party would go to McCain's charity, First Aid. When leaving for the party from the Pleasures' house Sabina was seen telling Alex to stop admiring himself in the mirror. They were all set to leave when Sabina's mother announced she wasn't feeling well and could not come. The party bored both Alex and Sabina and they left early, but as they were driving down the hill away from the castle where the party was set, their car's tire was shot out and they were sent plummeting into the loch below. But, of course, Alex manages to save her and her father's lives once more. The Pleasures decide to leave for America early, although they invite Alex over for spring. Before leaving, Sabina kisses Alex on the cheek, suggesting her feelings for him are still existent.

The Graphic Novels Edit

Sabina is introduced early on in the Alex Rider graphic novels, first appearing in Stormbreaker and every edition thereafter.


Her NameEdit

In Anthony Horowitz' afterword in Snakehead he writes that her name was a nod at Ian Fleming, the James Bond author, who gave his girls suggestive names like Plenty O`Toole and Pussy Galore.

Trivia Edit

  • It is often mentioned that Sabina has a "fixation with older men," which is surprising considering the amount of interest she shows in Alex, who is younger than her.
  • Her name is a pun on the phrase "It's been a pleasure."
  • In both the graphic novels and the film version of Stormbreaker, she appears as a school friend of Alex, instead of meeting him at Wimbledon, to provide a love interest element to the film and graphic novel interpretations.
  • Also, by the end of the film she knows (and believes) Alex's secret, instead of learning of it in Eagle Strike.
  • Although she and Alex show obvious romantic affection towards each other, she is technically Alex's sister by the end of Scorpia Rising because her family adopted him.
