Desiria "Sad Eyes" Grinder is a volatile woman, a member of the Blueskins. She is described as the kind of person who makes everybody around her feel uncomfortable, even her friends.
She wasn't always the way she is. During most of her childhood, she stuck to the shadows and rarely talked to anyone. As her own mother was too strung out on helixin, she lived with her grandmother, who used and abused her for her own purposes.
Her grandmother treated Desiria as nothing more than a tool, talking to her in a manner that emphasized her detachment. "Little girl make any money for her grandma today?" for example.
When the Blueskins found Grinder wandering through their territory, they beat her nearly to death. Since she lived, they invited her to join the gang, and she accepted. As part of her initiation, she was renamed "Sad Eyes". The Blueskins showed her more respect than anybody else ever had, so she devoted her life to the gang.
Eventually, she returned to her grandmother's home with her gang, and they beat her to death with nail-stubbed clubs, not stopping until every bone in her body was broken.
At some point, she found herself on the Dark Athena, held captive alongside the former crew members and other prisoners captured by the mercs. Her first impulse upon seeing Riddick was to insult him, having learned from Kal Bonner of him killing several of her Blueskin brothers at Butcher Bay Correctional Facility.
Sad Eyes seemed pretty confident that she could take Riddick on. Upon being released, she managed to escape death by the merc squads that killed most of the escaped prisoners. Despite arming herself with a submachine gun, Riddick ended her life fairly easily.
