Sophia is an artificial lifeform created based on the unnamed priestess who connected the Earth and Wonder World's image. She was intended to be used to summon the Great Book once Master Logos gathered the Seiken and Wonder Ride Books. Sophia was later assigned as the mystic and leader of the Northern Base-branch of the Sword of Logos.
The Fight Against Calibur
She is the mentor of the Sword of Logos, when Touma joined the group she decided to advise him on the danger of getting involved. She oversaw the battle of Kamen Riders from the Northern Base, but has grown suspicious with the return of Kamen Rider Calibur. She begins to suspect that Hayato may not be currently acting as Calibur, which in his fight against Touma confirmed that the current user is Daichi Kamijo, the former Saber.
Later, she attempts to speak with her old comrade herself to question why he would betray his old teammates. Sophia was later kidnapped by Reika Shindai using Eneiken Noroshi while she hid away from Kamijo and Kento's battle. She was later shown to be held captive somewhere and was watched by Master Logos himself.
In The Southern Base's Captivity
While in the Southern Base, she was visited by Reika and took the opportunity to ask if everyone from the Northern Base was alright, only to recieve a slap in the face.
|―Sophia's question towards Calibur[src]|
When Rintaro stalked Reika, Sophia was revealed to hold the most important book for Master Logos' vile plan, the book of human creation. Sophia kept on refusing to tell the book's location. While Rintaro would fail to rescue Sophia, Kamen Rider Calibur came to the place where Sophia was held captive. She thought it was still Daichi Kamijo until Calibur revealed himself to the latter as Kento while he saves Sophia from Southern Base Sword of Logos. She would then return to Northern Base, much to the shock and joy of the swordsmen.
War against Master Logos
Sophia returned to her role as support in the Northern Base, now aware that Master Logos is the true enemy within the organization. While the Northern Base was inflitrated by the Shindai siblings and the Megid due to Master Logos destroying the barrier, Sophia attempted to restore the barrier herself and nearly sacrificed herself to save the Northern Base swordsmen, only to be protected by Rintaro, using the Northern Base's possession of the Almighty Book's fragment to become Kamen Rider Blades Tategami Hyoujuusenki.
It would be revealed to the others about Sophia's true nature as a duplicate of the Priestess that connected Earth and Wonder World, but the Northern Base swordsmen assured her that they will still accept her as a close friend no matter what. She also tried to convince Kento to reunite with his friends, which he initially refuse but overtime, returned to the Northern Base now believing Touma could change the future. As Touma gained the power of the Haouken Xross Saber and overtime Master Logos was vanquished for good.
Despite the victory against Master Logos, Storious remained to enact his plan to destroy the world. Following the death of Tassel, the destruction of Wonder World began to affect Earth. It also began to affect Sophia, but was prevented if it wasn't for Yuri handing her Ankokuken Kurayami to maintain her physical state. Storious became stronger after achieving the Grimiore Wonder Ride Book and became Kamen Rider Storious. Furthermore, the Megid had ressurected the Four Sages to become his loyal followers.
The final battle began to approach, Sophia joined with the rest of the swordsmen in their final march against Storious, with Ankokuken Kurayami in her hand. She transformed into Kamen Rider Calibur and fought with Yuri against the horde of Shimis while the others storm Storious' tower. Although she struggled, it was the spirits of Hayato Fukamiya and Daichi Kamijo who aided her in the fight and eventually Sophia remained victorious. Sophia was among many lives that were affected by a wave of destruction, only to be restored back to normal.
One Year Later
One year later, Sophia was with Reika and Ryoga in collecting the remaining Seiken. Upon witnessing the Wonder Ride Books' powers restored and Yuri's return, Sophia joined up with most of Touma's friends as they reunited with their missing friend once more.
As the mentor of the Northern Base Riders, she has a calm and level-headed personality. She gives the Riders wise advice for their troubles, as seen when she advises Touma not to rush to fight the Megid. She is also not prone to emotional outbursts and does not buckle easily under stressful situations.
While she is the superior to the Kamen Riders under her, she does not hold herself to a higher level above them. She is fine with Ren calling her "Sophia-chan", and she even refers to Daishinji as "Slash" before his return to being a Kamen Rider. She is also fairly trusting and respectful, even entrusting to Mei a book for detecting Megid attacks.
She harbors concern when the members of the Sword of Logos are in danger. Even when she was captured by Reika and came to her senses, her first concern was the condition of her Northern Base Kamen Riders.
Humorously, she does not have any outside experience similar to Rintaro and Yuri. This was shown when she attempted to copy some of Mei's cooking.
