"I'm worried that the Circle is falling apart."
— Sara Armstrong.

Sara Armstrong was the wife of Richard Armstrong and the mother of Jake and Nick Armstrong. She perished in the Boatyard Fire that occured sixteen years ago on the same night as her husband

Sara was a member of the Armstrong Family.

Early  Life

During her teens (or early twenties), Sara Armstrong married Richard Armstrong and had two sons, Jake and Nick. Because of Jake's age in comparison to other members of the current Circle, Sara and Richard likely married before any of their other counterparts.

She was also involved in a Circle of witches that included members from the Blake Family, Balcoin/Blackwell Family, Chamberlain Family, Conant Family, Glaser Family and Meade Family.

On the night of the Boatyard Fire, Sara and her husband went to the boat to discuss a truce between the Circle and a group of Witch Hunters. While her husband Richard was ademant about the truce being necessary, Sara was unsure because of how divided the group was. However she eventually agreed because she wanted to protect her children.

After agreeing to the truce, Sara witnessed her husband being murdered by Eben, a Witch Hunter Leader. Unlike the others who had agreed to the truce, Sara was not killed directly by the Witch Hunters, but rather taken to the room where the ritual on John Blackwell was being performed, place where she saw Lucy, a non-circle member who she recognized and embraced. It is possible that Sara was left alive because she had been hesitant about the truce or because her magic was needed to perform the ritual against Blackwell.

It is likely that Sara was the only witch in the Circle to actually die because of the fire itself rather than trapped by the witch hunters.


She appeared to be a very caring witch, affectionate with her husband, concerned for her children, and genuinely distressed about the conflict within the circle.

Physical Appearance
