CHOUARD (SABINE DE), daughter of the preceding and wife of Comte Muffat
de Beuville. She was married at seventeen, and ever since had led a
cloistered existence with a pious husband and a dictatorial stepmother.
The death of her stepmother made little difference, and the family
continued to live in an atmosphere of frigid respectability. At
thirty-four Sabine looked little older than her own daughter, and would
not have been taken for more than twenty-eight. About this time Comte
Muffat fell entirely under the influence of Nana, and a change came
over the household. Sabine accepted the attentions of Fauchery,
whose mistress she became, and soon after launched into a course of
extravagance which in the end went far to complete the ruin to which her
husband was himself contributing. Other lovers followed Fauchery, and
in the end she ran off with the manager of a large drapery store.
Ultimately she returned, and was pardoned by her husband, who had lost
his own self-respect as a result of his intrigue with Nana. Nana.
