I'm almost done running my Hell's Rebels campaign, and I noticed when I was reading through Lost Omens: Legends that Sapphire Butterfly is credited as a large part of the resistance movement in Kintargo. However... I can't find any mention of the character in any of the Hell's Rebels books. And it feels a little weird now to retcon in my game world that she was actually a big part of the events. Did I miss something, or was this character just sort of introduced in Legends as a stand-in for the PCs? Right now I'm inclined to replace Sapphire Butterfly with the PCs in my campaign in terms of who started the Firebrands, etc.

As far as I know, Sapphire Butterfly is perhaps based on someone's character who played in Hell's Rebels; she wasn't created until 2nd edition, in any event, and isn't part of Hell's Rebels as-written, so you're not missing something. Her role is exactly meant to be a PC stand-in. Again, as far as I know. (I developed and helped write Hell's Rebels, but wasn't involved in Sapphire Butterfly's creation and only wrote a few other things for Legends.)

Thank you James! That's what I had figured, but it's good to have confirmation.
