|“||Fine, I’ll go ahead and clean [your room], but don’t blame me if I come across any of your private stuff, like your emails, your diary…||”|
—Sabine, "The Bubbler"
Sabine is short, having black hair with blue highlights and gray eyes.
She wears a white Cheongsam with a red, black, and gold plant design. She also wears periwinkle pants and black and white dress shoes. She wears a silver band on her ring finger.
Sabine is gentle, kind, and loving to her family and the people around her. However, she is a good responsible parent who will discuss issues with her daughter and give punishments like grounding her at the worst. Sometimes, Sabine is a bit nosy and over-involved, usually when it comes to Marinette with her crushes. She still keeps to her boundaries though, and she wants the best for everyone. For the bakery, Sabine is warm and professional, often treating others respectfully. With great concern and compassion toward others, she helps those in need with selflessness, from people she doesn't know well like Kim in "Animan" to people she knows personally like Marinette and Adrien.
Helping her husband run the bakery, Sabine knows how to bake pastries, including cakes and macarons. She also can manage the front desk and cashier for selling the pastries.
In "Troublemaker", it is shown that Sabine knows martial arts, and can use this ability for defense.
= Gender Unknown
- The lineage of Sabine Cheng's parents and uncle is uncertain.
- In China, wives do not usually take on their husband's surname, keeping their own. Children usually take the father's surname.
- During a 2018 Miraculous panel at Ludicomix, Thomas Astruc revealed that Marinette has a grandfather but it's currently unknown if he is from Tom's or Sabine's side.
Sabine and Tom have been married for twenty years. A loving couple, they often show each other affection and support. They work well together at their bakery, and they come together for comfort in upsetting dilemmas. In "Timebreaker", she worries about looking her best for each other for their anniversary date, and in "The Bubbler", after the Bubbler's defeat and their release from his bubbles, they embrace. Sabine also makes sure her husband is ready for Career Day at Marinette's school before sending them off in "Rogercop".
Sabine loves her daughter and supports her. Marinette's safety, happiness, and success are important to her. Knowing her daughter's frustrations with school, Sabine reassures her that the new school year will be fine in "Ladybug & Cat Noir". She also worries where Marinette is during Stoneheart's attack in the same episode, wanting her daughter to not get hurt. While getting along strongly with Marinette, Sabine is reasonable and wise when it comes to disciplining her and expecting good actions from her. In "Simon Says", Tom and Sabine put Marinette under curfew because she is often absent from school. After her attendance improves, they lift the curfew, but as Sabine notes in response to Tom's confusion on Marinette's mysterious actions, the school must be demanding on her. She also teases her daughter, like in "The Bubbler" when she says that, if she has to tidy her room for her, she will stumble across all her private stuff.
Sabine is unaware of Marinette's double life as Ladybug, as she meets the heroine in "Animan" without recognizing her as her daughter. Nonetheless, she is a huge fan and supporter of Ladybug, assisting her if she needs help and cheering her on in her victories. In "Lady Wifi", Tom and Sabine are seen watching worriedly when Lady Wifi threatens to expose Ladybug's real identity. When Ladybug destroys the akuma-made projection of Hawk Moth in "Stoneheart", they are thrilled.
Sabine is well aware of Marinette's feelings for Adrien, telling the boy that her daughter constantly talks about him in "Gamer", to his apparent surprise. Liking Adrien and wanting to see him and Marinette together, she and Tom keep checking in on them in Marinette's room by bringing pastries for them, much to Marinette's embarrassment. Also, Sabine and Tom help search for Adrien when he goes missing in "A Christmas Special", and they join others to check on him at the Agreste mansion after he returns.
Just as she adores Ladybug, Sabine is a fan of Cat Noir, pleased by his heroics and protection of Paris.
Sabine and Nadja are good friends. Sabine and Tom make a cake that Nadja picks up in "Timebreaker", and Sabine assists Nadja by having Marinette babysit Manon for her.
