“It's my fault... Argh! I'll never be a real knight if I can't control my horse!”
—Sophie in a support conversation with the male Corrin

Sophie is a playable child character in Fire Emblem Fates. She is the daughter of Silas.


Sophie is the daughter of Silas. She has learned how to fight on horseback from him, and her personal horse, Avel (アヴェル), was chosen and named by him. A fledgling knight, she has yet to tame Avel as he tends to run wild and against her commands.

In her Paralogue, Sophie is once again trying to practice riding Avel, but he continues to be stubborn, bucking her off and running through the portal out of her Deeprealm. Giving chase, Sophie winds up back in the normal world and manages to regain control of Avel. Just as she was about to return to her Deeprealm, she catches local bandits harassing a village boy. Wanting to help the boy out, as well as hopefully impressing her father, Sophie leaps into action, but Avel proves to be troublesome once more. As luck would have it, Silas and the army he was traveling with happened to be in the area to stop that same bandit gang. After meeting her father on the battlefield, Sophie plays off that her presence is merely because she heard the shouts of help through the Deeprealm portal. At the end of the battle, Sophie was surprised that Avel followed her directions, which Silas attributes to her more confident attitude. He reveals that he chose Avel for her mount because of his more demanding attitude, hoping that he would teach her to become a confident leader in the future. Proud to see how much his daughter has grown, Silas invites Sophie to come live with the army, an offer she gladly accepts.

After the war, Sophie enlists in the Nohrian knights, setting many records. If she marries Male Corrin in Revelation, she will become the queen of Valla.


Sophie is prone to making mistakes, mostly unintentionally, but maintains an optimistic, cheerful demeanor. She is determined to prevent further mistakes, but may take them to extremes which often tend to fail dramatically. She dreams of being a respectable knight like her father and loves that she can compete with him in his prime.

Avel does not quite take to Sophie, often running wild, bucking her off, and even biting her. She is able to rein him in only in the heat of battle, particularly when focused on the fight. Otherwise, Avel causes pandemonium that Sophie apologetically has to address. Despite the destruction and mayhem left in his wake, Sophie adores Avel and is determined to become a true master for him.

Aside from her relationship with Avel, she's very fond of horses in general. Her supports with Forrest reveal that she likes clothing with silhouettes of horses on it, or fabric that's the same color as Avel's coat. She enjoys stretching and exercising regularly, and is noted to be extremely limber by Shiro, being able to lift her leg over her head.

She talks to herself more than anyone in the whole army.

Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.

Base Class[]

Inheriting her Father's base stats, Sophie has an inclination towards Strength and Skill based classes. Regardless of her mother, she will hold onto these positive traits. Her personal skill, Mischievous, further emphasizes her affinity for physical classes since it forces all enemies that she initiates upon to lose 3 points of Defense. On a side note, if she attacks with a weapon advantage, she strips her enemy as a visual bonus. Sophie starts out as a Cavalier with Elbow Room and Shelter, giving her a damage boost and utility, respectively, although the latter will probably fall off in later stages.

Sophie can promote to either Paladin or Great Knight. Paladin helps her naturally good Speed and Skill growths, and makes her a good all-around physical unit. Defender is somewhat useful early game, although like Shelter, it will fall off later. Aegis is useful to shave off magic damage, and Sophie will trigger it often due to her high Skill. Great Knight trades Paladin's Speed and Resistance for Strength and Defense. It offers two extremely useful skills in Luna and Armored Blow; the former can help Sophie take down bulkier enemies, while the latter makes her hard to take down physically on her turn. Overall, both classes are good options for Sophie, and it largely comes down to player choice which one they prefer.

Secondary Class and Paternal Inheritance[]

Like her father, Sophie has access to Mercenary and its promotions, Hero and Bow Knight. While she loses mobility as a Mercenary or Hero, she will also lose her Beast weakness. Her growths and good Sword rank mean she can jump into this line with little trouble. Mercenary offers Good Fortune and Strong Riposte, neither of which are too useful to her. Hero offers Sol, a very useful recovery skill which Sophie should activate often due to her high Skill. Axebreaker can be useful to take down Axe wielders, but since all of Sophie's final classes use Swords, they shouldn't present too much of a challenge. Bow Knight lets Sophie regain her mobility, and offers a range option in Bows, although she will have to start at E Rank. Rally Skill is not especially useful to her, as she would rather be attacking than supporting. Shurikenbreaker is a superb skill for her, especially on Chapter 25 in Conquest. Overall, Sophie is a strong and versatile unit who should be a welcome addition to the army, especially in Birthright.

Silas does not have any friendship classes that Sophie cannot get in some form from a potential mother, as she can get Ninja from Kagero, Troubadour from Felicia, and Samurai from Hana. Choosing a skill to pass down to her is up to the player, though if searching for a skill that is useful from these classes without forcing her to have one of them as her mother, it is completely up to the player.

Maternal Inheritance[]

  • Female Corrin: Corrin passes down the Nohr Princess line, which she can go into with little trouble thanks to her already good sword rank. In Birthright, Sophie will get Hoshido Noble; in Conquest she will get Nohr Noble; in Revelation she has access to both. All of the classes offer useful skills for her: Nohr Princess offers Nobility, which helps her level up faster; Dragon Fang deals more consistent damage than her native Luna, although it doesn't trigger as often. Hoshido Noble offers Dragon Ward, a useful skill to shield allies, and Hoshidan Unity, which boosts her chances to activate Aegis, Sol, Luna and Dragon Fang. Sophie is less suited to Nohr Noble, due to its more magical focus, though it has useful skills for her: Draconic Hex makes any enemy she can't KO an easy target, while Nohrian Trust lets her use her allies proc skills. Corrin can also pass skills she otherwise couldn't have in a particular route: in Birthright, Trample from Malig Knight and Pavise from General are some of the more notable ones. The former gives a boost to Sophie's offensive prowess so long as she faces unmounted opponents, the latter combined with Aegis and Sol makes her very hard to break. In Conquest, Swordfaire from Swordmaster and Lancefaire from Spear Master are good options to increase her damage output with Swords and Lances, respectively. The latter also offers Basara, which gives Quixotic to boost the activation rate of Aegis, Luna, Sol and Dragon Fang.
  • Azura/Hinoka/Selena: Azura, Hinoka and Selena pass down the Sky Knight line. Sophie can jump into this line with no problem due to her good Lance rank. This class trades Defense and some Strength for higher Speed and Resistance. Darting Blow can help her double enemies more easily, although this will rarely be a problem with her high Speed. Camaraderie can restore HP, but overall Sol is a superior recovery skill for her. Falcon Knight offers Rally Speed, which can help out in a support role, should Sophie be unable to reach an enemy. It also offers Warding Blow, which lets her destroy magic users with ease. She could combine this with Armored Blow from her native Great Knight to take very little damage on her turn. Sophie's growths are more suited to Falcon Knight than Kinshi Knight, but it does still provide useful skills for her. Air Superiority helps her take down opposing fliers, while Amaterasu is a useful aura skill. Of the three mothers, Azura gives higher Speed and Skill modifiers, while Hinoka gives higher Strength and Defense. They can also offer skills from Songstress and the Spear Fighter line, respectively. Voice of Peace gives Sophie a little more durability, while Hinoka's Lancefaire lets her hit harder with Lances. Overall, Selena is the weakest of the three Sky Knight mothers, as unlike Hinoka and Azura, her alternate class is Mercenary, which Sophie already has access to.
  • Felicia/Elise: Felicia and Elise both pass down the Troubadour line. Sophie's low Magic growth and having to start at E rank in Tomes, Staves and Shurikens makes her a poor healer, and none of the skills are especially useful to her. Tomebreaker from Maid is somewhat useful to get around her low Resistance, and is more reliable than Aegis. However, if the player is concerned with magic users, they could simply have her hold a Hexlock Spear or Guard Naginata.
  • Mozu: Mozu is a fantastic mother for Sophie, giving her positive modifiers in all stats other than Resistance, which she can patch up with Aegis. Mozu passes down the Villager line. Sophie can reclass into this line with no issue due to her high Lance rank. Villager offers Aptitude, which improves her stat growths, and Underdog, which is somewhat useful early on to face higher level opponents, but falls off later. Villager promotes to either Master of Arms or Merchant. Sophie is more suited to the former, as it lets her keep using Swords, and her growths work better for that class. Master of Arms offers Seal Strength, which stacks nicely with her personal to let her threaten physical foes. Later on it offers Life and Death, which boosts damage given and taken by 10. While this is a risky skill to equip, she can nullify the extra damage with Armored Blow on turns she attacks. Merchant is more about utility. Its first skill is Profiteer, which can generate gold bars, although in Birthright and Revelation, money is much easier to come by and Midori and Anna are generally better gold farmers. Its other skill is Spendthrift, a safer alternative to Life and Death if Sophie has a supply of Gold Bars on tap.
