The sable (Martes zibellina) is a small mammal, closely akin to the martens, living in northern Asia from the Ural Mountains through Siberia and Mongolia to HokkaidÅ in Japan. Its range in the wild originally extended through European Russia to Poland and Scandinavia. It has achieved fame for its fur, which is integrated into various clothes fashions (for example the shtreimel).
Sable, also known by her full name of Onysablet, is an enormous black dragon in the fictional Dragonlance universe. She came with the her fellow giant dragons, such as Malys and Beryl. She took New Coast for herself, and named herself a Dragon Overlord.
