Chronology[edit | edit source]
Mass for the Dead Arc[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Mass for the Dead Arc
In the game, Sofie relocates to E-Rantel for her research on monsters. There she meets the protagonist and contracts his team to collect samples of the slimes in the city's sewers to discern why the monsters have gone aggressive.
From her analysis she learns that the slimes have traces of alchemical solution, causing them to mutate. The magic caster brought her findings to Lakyus Alvein Dale Aindra, who then called a meeting of the city's representatives and the members of the Tripartite Alliance. Suspicion fell on Hilma Cygnaeus, the executive of the Pharmacist's Guild, for illegally stealing the substance to mutate the slimes. It was later learned that the mutation was an accident caused by the rundown from the artificial herb project, in which the solution was permeated in the soil and washed into the sewers.
Sophie visited the secret laboratory where Nfirea Bareare was trying to cure the contaminated Gazef Stronoff. The magic caster suggested that perhaps they should move their subject to a more open area, however, she was ignored, thus they turned to reviewing their notes on their progress in finding a cure for the Miasma which did not seem to be a poison but rather a "curse" as those afflicted remained Contaminated Beasts even after they are revived from death. Sophie had very little interest in making a cure as her focus was on slimes, but praised her peer for the work he was doing, advising him to take better care of himself before leaving.
Sophie later bumps into Fluder Paradyne outside in the streets of E-Rantel. After they share a few words, she inquires about her senior's secret project and what prompted him to conceive of such an idea given his sole interest in magic. When the wizard states that it a result of the times. After he departs she wonders if that is the case. While she finds her master's work to be amusing she however decides to focus on her own slime project.
Shortly before the protagonist was granted the title as Guardian of E-Rantel and transferred the administration rights of the city to the Sorcerer Kingdom, he recruited Sophie to become part of a new research team called the E-Rantel Magic Research Institute to study a broad field of subjects for the Alliance. The magic caster happily accepted the invitation, to further her research in slimes and their potential uses. Later she was out in the field, investigating the cause of why the slimes in the Melting Pot at the Quarry failed to melt all the Chaos Beasts that fell within. Upon studying the slimes' mucus samples, she made a startling discovery.

Relationships[edit | edit source]
Due to her interest in the monster, she appears to have an unhealthy obsession with the Slime.
The two women are colleagues, as Clementine acts as a middle person for her transactions to acquire new samples for Sophia's research. Though Clementine finds her habits to be strange, and the researcher referring her as her senior, embarrassing the saint who sees Sophia as a good person.
Sophie seems to relish teasing Nfirea, especially noting his radically changed personality after Enri Emmot's death. When she comments him on his genius in his work, it is a mixture of praise and criticism. His now stoic and cold disposition interests her, and she openly states that its hard to believe that he is the "genius boy" she knew in the past.
