For Sofia being a thief is her family's fate, but lives out her dreams on the stage. After a long period of conflict Sofia's found her way.||”|
— Sofia's description in the Time Diary
Sofia is a very pretty young woman with hip-length length light pink hair that has ringlets at the end with bangs and a chest-length hair strand hanging on the right side, light blue eyes and a tall figure.
Her Star Sea dress is purple and floor-length where it is covered in many sparkling stars.
Sofia is a kind-hearted and warm person to those she meets, happy to meet Nikki and her friends even when they sneak into the dressing room of the 'Candy Witch and Star Sea' production.
She is also very ambitious. As the heir of the Phantom Thief family, she still pursues her dreams of being a performer, even though her family name could prevent her from continuing.
Sofia held an interest in dancing from an early age, shown in how she used to practice dancing all alone during the sunset.
Sofia worked as both a dancer and a member of the Phantom Thief Family during this year. She performed a highly praised Christmas Eve concert at the St. Vitus cathedral before going to search the cathedral for a treasure. However, while she was there, an old clockmaker confronted her after she picked up an antique music box.
Though she claimed to not care about the music box, the clockmaker knew she was there as part of the Phantom Thief Family. However, he could sense her reluctance to actually steal things, and she eventually admitted that she just wanted to dance instead of being somebody's puppet. While opening up a trapdoor in the tower, he ordered her to dance, or else he would expose her identity.
She left her family and joined the Pigeon Royal Dance Troupe. Her family did not contact her for three months, leaving her to wonder what had happened to them. The troupe leader also hinted that it was possible something could happen to the clockmaker, but made Sofia promise to do her best regardless. She saw Hiber after one of her performances, who asked if it was true that the clockmaker had enchanted her to dance forever and that the rest of the family was at the St. Vitus cathedral.
Sofia went to the cathedral as quickly as possible, where she worried for the safety of the clockmaker and berated herself for selfishly choosing her dream of becoming a dancer and making him a target. She tried to warn him, but the belltower collapsed before she could explain the situation to him. He only handed her the music box before he was buried beneath the wreckage.
Sofia became the lead actress of 'Candy Witch and Star Sea', which was performed in the Grand Theater in Cicia. Despite this, she was still part of the Phantom Thief Family and her family sent notes threatening to steal the Star Sea from Lilith. However, Nidhogg contacted Sofia's family and they came to an agreement involving appointing an agent named Lisa to the theater to keep up appearances.
While backstage one day, she met Nikki and her friends. She had been told about Nikki's reputation as a stylist by Lisa, and challenged her to a styling battle, encouraging her to wear a dress that could even beat the Star Sea. After Nikki beat her, Sofia invited them to come to the official performance of the play.
During the official performance, Sofia got trapped underneath a beam. Nikki and her friends confronted Lisa, the person they believed to be the thief, and made her turn the dress over. Sofia thanked them, and put on the Star Sea so that they could see what she looked like in it.
As Nikki and her friends left, Sofia expressed sadness over Nikki's ability to follow her dreams, and lamented to herself that as a Phantom Thief family heir, she wasn't sure whether she would ever be able to do the same.
Sofia went later to Long Street, Cloud, where she had heard rumors from the Star Seer about two precious treasures originating from the Cloud Empire. She wanted to find them in order to be inspired to create a modern dance tour.
After the dress White Blossom was stolen, Nikki and her friends tried to find the thief and confronted Sofia outside the banquet, but they didn't recognize her since she was in disguise. Nikki tried to beat her in a styling battle, but she used a special skill (Heart Snatcher) to switch their scores. Nikki equipped an Apple-style gun and blocked the skill, but Sofia escaped anyways.
She left the banquet to meet up with Orlando, and with his help got to return the White Blossom to Kimi, whose father had designed the dress. She revealed that Hiber had actually been the one to steal it, and warned her that the people working to steal the dress would not give up on it easily.
