I often join expeditions to hunt for stonetomes, whereas Radovan only occasionally comes along. He says, “Once in a while is fine, but I don't want it to turn into a daily grind.” Hmph!

When visiting the other city states she changes outfits to blend in with the citizens, swapping to a linen coatee in Ul'dah, a sailors shirt in Limsa Lominsa, and a glacial coat in Ishgard, all of her outfits are dyed celeste green. In battle she wields a diamond cane.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Sophie has an eccentric personality, when visiting Ul'dah she would rather visit the Gold Saucer and look at the markets than work. She believes the best way to visit a new place is to dress like the locals and whenever she has a hunch there is no stopping her. She cares for Radovan dearly, considering him to be like family.
