The premire courtesan of the Moulin Rouge, Satine is perfectly content to work for her money. She is known as the Sparkling Diamond of Moulin Rouge. She is introduced to Christian while singing her song "Sparkling Diamonds" quoting "Diamonds are a girl's best friend" and "We are living in a material world, and I am a material girl".
She is meant to seduce the wealthy Duke of Monroth in order to fund a production that will transform the Moulin Rouge into a theater and she into "a real actress". Satine mistakes Christian for the Duke in a hillarious seduction scene which leaves her in love with the penniless writer.
She maintains a realistic view, that a prostitute falling in love always ends badly, but when Christian sneaks into her apartment, the elephant, and he sings an argument to her with her countering all proposals, she eventually gives into her love and desire stating "you're going to be bad for business, I can tell".
