Sofia (ソフィア・ハラペニョ・ヴィヴィアージュ, Sophia Harapenyo Viviaaju) is a bachelorette in Rune Factory 3: A Fantasy Harvest Moon.

Profile

Personality

She is a wealthy, strange girl who is constantly bored and seeking attention. Like many of the De Saint-Coquille family members, she has no awareness of the value of money. Despite how vainly and demanding she might act, she is actually a sincere young woman who adores her family and friends, doing whatever she can to help them and engaging earnestly in whatever interests they may have.

She has taken up her father's habit of speaking in opposites, which makes it difficult for others to understand her and sometimes lands her in confusing situations. It is impossible to tell whether speaking in opposites is now purely second nature to her or she still has to think before talking. It is noted, however, that she speaks in opposites even more when she is highly stressed, and that actively restraining herself from speaking in opposites also stresses her out.

Sofia likes useless things such as Cans and Scrap Metal—a preference which likely originated from a certain incident in her childhood with her older sister.

Appearance

Sofia has long, straight, purple hair adorned with a yellow ribbon that has a thick, light blue outline. Her bangs are parted to the right, held in place by a light blue hair clip. She has matching purple eyes and pale skin. She wears an elaborate dress with frills and ribbons, and on her feet are a comfy pair of boots.

Story

Contrary to what her opposite-way of communication might suggest, she is actually hiding her honesty. As a matter of fact, Sofia hadn't always spoken in opposites—it started long ago when Sofia got a gift made of garbage from her sister. She hated it, which made Evelyn very upset. After that incident, she wished to tell the truth by lying, and now she makes it a habit like her father, who also speaks in opposites.

In Raven's request 'Thank You', when they give a Failed Dish as an apology gift for Sofia, she mentions that Raven actually thinks that the light was what took her friend away. She also explains that the light emerges from a series of disturbances in the rune energies from a monster and a human. Micah is a bit in shock since he's a half-human and half-monster. Sofia elaborates "But I haven't found where it causes a person to disappear. Just monster pets." Raven still says that she saw her friend (a person) disappear with her own eyes. Sofia then says, "Was that really a human?". Raven is shocked by the inference made by Sofia. Raven and Micah are both half-human and half-monster, and the wooly nearing the light had rune entity within it. The effect of boundary-breaking created a portal-form of energy from such disturbance in the atmosphere. This is to ensure that this 'boundary' limits certain disturbances between those who are different.

Relationships

Sofia loves her older sister, Evelyn, and her father, Sherman. She highly values her familial relationships and often talks about small events that happened at their mansion. The emergence of Sofia's opposite speech deeply concerns Evelyn, while Evelyn's unusual fashion sense horrifies Sofia. Thanks to her father, she has normalized a lot of outrageous behaviour, but they get along splendidly. Both sisters can get into disagreements with their father due to conflicting interests or values (or mishaps with food), but they’re all very close, and they obviously cherish each other.

Raven and Karina are Sofia’s best friends in the town, always hanging out together during festivals. They often mention her in conversations and vice-versa. The trio accept each other’s individual eccentricities, seeing them not as flaws, but simply as part of who they are, and, on the whole, respect their personal boundaries. They appear to have developed some fluency in understanding Sofia's opposite language, particularly since her actual feelings show through her facial expressions, though there are rare moments it becomes too confusing for either of them to decipher. Sofia spends a lot of time visiting their stores to chat with them and sometimes offers them (surprisingly) sound advice on customer service, which neither of them ever follows. Out of the three, Sofia is, in her own paradoxical way, the most honest in expressing worry and love for them, and she goes out of her way to help them however she can.

I love these. It looks like it's so useful, but it's actually useless… If you're going to give me something, give me something like Rare Can or Rock.

Battle

Sofia usually casts her Shocking Wail(Shock Wave) whenever an enemy is out of her range. She does not approach them by running, but rather, she is cautious enough to deal a quick, effective Lunging Talk, combined with the Sweep Talk for a very versatile combo. She has a great awareness and oblivious enough for retaliating enemies' attacks.

Sofia's melee combat tactics is pretty random, since she always performs them in an all-out attacks. But, she will always cast Shocking Shout whenever an enemy is not within her combat range.

[Melee]>  Reversal Vox(regular attacks) (3 hits)

[Melee]> Lunging Talk[Shortsword Dash Attack] (sparingly with Reversal Vox and Sweep Talk)

[Melee]> Sweep Talk[Shortsword Charged Attack] (sparingly with Lunging Talk and Reversal Vox)

[Any range]> Shocking Wail[Shock Wave] (mostly and sparingly)

Support: Mediheals

Sofia will always cast the corresponding Medi-spells for a quick restoration. She will cast it when either she or Micah is inflicted with Poison, Paralysis or Seal. She is aware enough to be idle for a while and casts it for a quick status dispelling.

Sofia has no Special Skills.

  • Note that Sofia's speed and awareness in battle will rise after the Unity Festival.
    • Also, Sofia's usage of Mediheals is for both Micah and her in terms of current status will progress right after the Unity Festival.
