Chang Sacha Character Analysis

Chang Sacha is the baker in the market where Cinder works. She discriminates against Cinder, telling her son Sunto not to play near Cinder’s booth because she is a cyborg. But when Sacha comes down with letumosis and Cinder visits the quarantines, Sacha begs Cinder to bring Sunto to him before she dies. As a result, when Cinder is given a dose of the letumosis cure, she gives it to Sunto.

Chapter 1 Quotes

“They say you’re the best mechanic in New Beijing. I was expecting an old man.”

“Do they?” she murmured.

He wasn’t the first to voice surprise. Most of her customers couldn’t fathom how a teenage girl could be the best mechanic in the city, and she never broadcast the reason for her talent. The fewer people who knew she was cyborg, the better. She was sure she’d go mad if all the market shopkeepers looked at her with the same disdain as Chang Sacha did.
