She is the military leader of the Remnants.
Early Life Edit
Sofia was born to Jacob and and woman named Alya in the Remnant village. Despite Jacob's belief that she would be a symbol of him being an unfit leader, Sofia became a skilled hunter and leader, earning the respect of the entire village.
Sofia became a teacher to all the younger members of the community, teaching them how to hunt, as well as becoming the leader of the Remnants military, in their efforts to protect The Divine Source, hidden within the city of Kitezh.
Trinity's Invasion Edit
Sofia encountered Trinity's forces near the beginning of their invasion along with a man Elias . After being caught, they fled through the wilderness, Elias was shot down and caught by Trinity's forces, Sofia killed two of them though she ran out of arrows. One of the goons executed Elias, with no way to defend herself, Sofia fled, chased by several soldiers.
Sofia managed to lose them, and came across Lara. Believing her to be a threat, she followed her to find out who she was. Seeing that Lara was not with Trinity, she confronted her. Lara tried to reason with Sofia. Sofia warned Lara to leave before it was too late, Lara tells her she can't as she came for something important. Which she states that so Trinity also came for something important, she warned Lara to leave, or she would "put an arrow in [her] throat."
When Lara arrives at the Remnant village, Sofia and the others surround Lara with weapons drawn. Lara claims that she was told to come by Jacob. Disbelieving her, Sofia prepares to make good on her earlier threat, however Jacob arrives, and declares that none of them are to harm Lara as she is a friend. Jacob alerts the village that Trinity are preparing for an assault on the village, Sofia goes to rally the villagers.
Sofia gives a speech to the villagers, stating that they can win, though it will be a tough fight. She also says that the elderly and the children are to be brought to the catacombs, where it would be safer. Lara approaches her and tries once more to offer her assistance, though Sofia dismisses her.
Sofia takes the elderly and the children to the catacombs, to keep them safe, however she is ambushed and captured by Trinity. Before they can execute her, she is rescued by Lara. She thanks Lara for saving them and admits she misjudged her. Lara tells Sofia to get the others to safety while she pushes back against Trinity.
After Trinity's forces in the area have been defeated, Sofia finds Lara who is in the process of leaving to search for the Atlas. She tells Lara that she wants to help her to repay her for her help, and reveals the location of the Atlas, which is hidden in the archives beneath the Cathedral. She tells Lara that she won't go with her, because of the Deathless Ones who are guarding the Atlas and will kill any and all trespassers, she also gives her a wire spool, which Lara uses to create a makeshift grappling hook.
Sofia later meets Jonah, who the Remnants found half dead in the tundra. When he claims to be a friend of Lara's they take him to the Observatory to wait for Lara. When Lara returns, after a brief reunion with Jonah, Sofia tells Lara that Jacob is waiting for her. After Trinity attack the observatory, taking Jonah and the Atlas. Lara makes her way to the Soviet Weather station to rescue him. Sofia tells Lara that the claimed some gear from Trinity which Lara may find useful.
Lara returns with Jonah and several other Remnants who were being held prisoner. Lara informs them that Trinity know where Kitezh is hidden. When they spot Trinity's helicopter's heading to the glacier, they realize that Trinity are going to use brute force to get into the city. Sofia takes troops to hold of Trinity's forces to buy Lara some time.
Trinity get through the ice and into the city, Sofia makes her way down and commandeers a trebuchet in order to provide Lara with backup, killing dozens of Trinity soldiers and being instrumental in taking down Konstantin's gunship.
Lara returns to the village after the Divine Source is destroyed and informs Sofia of Jacob's death, and though she wishes she could have been there when it happened, she accepts he's gone, thanks Lara for her help, and takes over her father's mantle. Sofia gifts Lara the Atlas to take home with her, as a token of appreciation.
