|“||Blue was a fanciful but sensible thing, like a platypus, or one of those sandwiches that had been cut into circles for a fancy tea party.||”|

Blue Sargent lives at 300 Fox Way with her mother, Maura Sargent, and the other psychics. She lacks psychic abilities but rather increases others powers with her presence. In her junior year of high school, and against her better judgment, Blue befriends several Aglionby boys—Richard Gansey III, Adam Parrish, Ronan Lynch and Noah Czerny—and joins them in their quest for the sleeping Welsh king Owen Glendower.
Blue comes from a family of psychics and is the only resident of her house to lack this ability. When the people in her house are doing readings, she often attends them, as she makes things loud and gives off extra energy. She is described as being a sort of magnet for the supernatural; the magnifying glass that focuses the sun. Gansey also compared her to "the table at Starbucks everyone wanted"
Her father disappeared right when she was born; his name, as Maura says near the end of The Raven Boys, was Artemus. No one knew where he went, or if he could help it. Maura met him after she, Calla, and Persephone had done a ritual. Her theory is that they released him somehow from Cabeswater, where she believes he was trapped.
She is sarcastic, very opinionated, adventurous, independent, and most of all sensible, despite her best tries to be otherwise. She loves nature and the environment and likes dreaming about things like college, which she can't afford. Although she grew up rather ostracized because of her peculiar family, by the time she was a teenager, her strangeness became an asset and she's described as extremely cool. She's a feminist and refuses to be objectified by random men, or treated as a "girlfriend" and not a real friend by Adam. She's fiercely loyal to her friends, and she loves her family deeply, although she often feels like an outsider. She is hard-working and has multiple jobs.
Blue is short (no more than five feet tall) and described as having a compact build. Her skin and eye color are left to interpretation. Her black, spiky hair, cut into a bob that she styles carefully and pulls back with several clips to make it look eccentric. She's also said to have wide eyes, dubious eyebrows, and a curious mouth. As of The Raven King, she has an injured eye.
Most of her clothes are handmade or sewn together. Her style is eccentric and very different. She explained that this was because she felt so "ordinary" compared to all the psychic women in her life, so she tried to make her less invisible by her looks.
Richard Gansey Edit
At their first meeting, Blue considered Gansey to be just another rich playboy, but her view changed after she got to know him. She later discovered he was her true love.
Ronan Lynch Edit
Blue's and Ronan's friendship is sarcastic and sibling-like. Even though they didn't really like each other at first, over time they come to care for each other deeply.
Adam Parrish Edit
At first, Adam and Blue felt attraction for each other and started dating for a short period of time before breaking up. They become close friends and trust each other a lot.
Noah Czerny Edit
Noah and Blue quickly became close friends as Noah decided he would do anything for Blue. Blue trusts Noah very much and upon learning he was a ghost, she supported him and let him draw power from her in order to stay visible. Noah also lets her kiss him since he couldn't die and she wanted to try it at least once.
Henry Cheng Edit
Upon meeting Henry, Blue was initially repulsed. However, after spending more time with him at a party and "shedding her prickly skin", they discuss taking a vacation to Venezuela together and bringing Gansey, who Blue insists would hike instead of fly.
Near the beginning of The Raven King, Blue realizes that her perception of Henry may be off (when he warns them about Opal being visible by claiming their tailgate is open), and that he may have many layers to him, which unsettles and intrigues her.
- If she kisses her true love, he will die. Because of this, she has avoided boys and dating for most of her life.
- Her aura color is blue, however it is not said whether that is where she got her name from. (Blue Lily, Lily Blue)
- Gansey has nicknamed her Jane.
- She had her first kiss with Noah.
- She used to like Adam and dated him for a while before they ended it.
- She is represented by the Page of Cups. Maura says it is 'her' cup and she even resembles the picture on the Page of Cups card in Maura's tarot deck.
- She never eats the fruit at the bottom of yogurt cups.
- She wants to go to college, and see the world.
