“Yes... I am half Dragon...so I grow slowly...”
—Sophia talking to Fae in a support conversation

Sophia is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade who makes a minor appearance in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. She is a half-dragon girl from Arcadia.

ProfileEdit

The Blazing BladeEdit

Sophia makes a brief cameo, where she is looking for Athos and can have conversations with different members of Eliwood's army if the player visits the ruin village at the bottom right of the map. She also apparently knows Hawkeye, accidentally mistaking him for the Archsage like everyone else when he send Hawkeye to the ruins. Hawkeye asks her to tell his daughter that he will be home and she says she will.

Fire Emblem: The Binding BladeEdit

Sophia was captured by Bern forces and sent to the same prison cell as Cecilia, where she treated the general's wounds using her powers. Aside from that, she can see the future, though not clearly. She then leads the Alliance army to Arcadia, in order to help the people there shake off Bern's invasion.

Though she has little background, in support conversations she speaks slowly, demonstrating her shyness. It is noted that she is very old, about one century of age. Sophia cannot transform into a dragon, even though she is half-human half-dragon, as she does not seem to possess a dragonstone.

She can form a close friendship with Raigh and can marry Roy if they have A-support in the end.

OverallEdit

Initially, once one sees Sophia's growths, which present notable advantages over Raigh's such as better Magic and Resistance, they may be inclined to believe that she has high potential as a unit... that is, until they see her bases. Simply put, they would be a hindrance on the first map, let alone halfway through the game and during a Fog of War chapter. Simply carting her across the map to receive her Guiding Ring is a hassle, let alone actually attempting to use her to inflict damage and therefore gain levels. Her Accuracy is abysmal, her Constitution ensures that even Flux slows her down and her and Defense will never get better with a base of 1 and growth of and 20%, respectively. Similar applies to her Luck. She does qualify for the Est Archetype, along with Zeiss.

She is a slower less skilled Raigh, similar to Lilina compared to Lugh, however she has more magic and resistance, and slightly higher HP, Defense, and Luck, and even then, only with an insane amount of unnecessary effort. Even once she gets up in levels and promotes, she'll still be exceeded in many stats by her main competition, Raigh, such as in Speed, Skill, and Constitution. Another problem for her presents itself in the form of Guiding Rings, which are very limited in supply in Binding Blade and therefore may be spent on another character able to make better use out of them, such as Saul or Raigh. Finally, the fact remains that even if she is successfully trained, there remains the unreliability of her growths, which while most are above average growth wise, including Skill, Resistance, Magic, and arguably HP and Speed. However, due to her terrible start, it is still risky, if she does happen to be screwed, scarce stat boosters will be the only way to salvage her.

Possible EndingsEdit

Sophia - Nabata Prophet (ナバタの予言者 Nabata no yogensha)

After returning to Nabata, Sophia disappeared. There are no records to what happened to Nabata after the war, so no one knows how Sophia led her life from then on…
Roy With Sophia
Sophia accompanied Roy to Pherae, where they married. Although she was never very talkative, her wise decisions played a major role in the reconstruction of Lycia.

Non-Canon AppearancesEdit

Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher)Edit

Sophia is illustrated in the trading card game with the following cards:

EtymologyEdit

Sophia is Greek for "wisdom". This was the name of an early saint who supposedly died of grief after her three daughters were martyred. Sophia also appears in the phrase Hagia Sophia (which means "Holy Wisdom"), which is the name of a large basilica in Constantinople. Her name in the Japanese version, Sofiya (София in Russian and Bulgarian, Софія in Ukrainian), is a Slavic variant of Sophia.

TriviaEdit

  • Sophia is the only female Shaman in the GBA games, though she is not the only female Druid, as Niime is also in the same game.
  • On the official Japanese website for Nintendo, Sophia won 10th place out of 80 in the character popularity poll for Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. The male-female vote ratio is 5:1. The voter comments seem to mostly focus on her shy, gentle, and quiet personality and the mystery surrounding her character.
  • Sophia shares her English voice actress, Wendee Lee, with Veronica, Maria and Lyn in Fire Emblem Heroes.
