History: In the alternate timeline in which the Martian Masters overtook the Earth, Sabre and his band of cavaliers maintained their freedom by working for the Masters, rounding up the remaining freemen to serve as slaves and/or meals for the Masters. Sabre served under the direction of the slave-lord Abraxax and the Martian High Overlord. While he disliked the Martians and the fates of those he captured, he disliked seeing himself in the same position himself even more so.
Sabre and his men encountered the legendary Killraven and his band of Freemen, and succeeded in capturing a few of them, but retreated from the initial confrontation when the Freemen were attacked by a giant, mutated sea creature. When the other Freemen arrived to rescue the others, Sabre found himself enjoying a sword-fight with Killraven, having found a match for his self. However, the battle was short-lived, as Abraxas ambushed Killraven from behind and captured him. While a prisoner of the Masters, Killraven exchanged words with Sabre that led him to question his career, as well as his true value to the Martians. Later, when Killraven escaped capture, Sabre turned against the Masters, fighting alongside Killraven and his band. Sabre blasted the High Overlord himself, preventing him from killing Killraven with a blast from behind. The blast glanced off of the High Overlord's chest and shattered a few of the support pillars in the Lincoln Monument, causing it to come crashing down. Both the High Overlord and Abraxas were crushed by the collapse, but Sabre appeared to be near the periphery and may have escaped.
