—Sophia talking to Niime in a support conversation
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.
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.

Subjective: The following part of this article is subjective to the editor's writing. Therefore, it may not work for everyone.
Sophia requires a ton of investment for minimal benefits. She joins halfway through the game as a level 1 unit with outclassed base stats. One would think this means her growths are higher to compensate but they're on average with the other growth units in the game. Her 4 base speed on top of a 30% growth means that she'll have issues trying to not get doubled by nearly everything and her low constitution still slows her down despite tomes being notably lighter in this game. In all, she's not worth the effort unless the player enjoys seeing weaker units grow.

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