Sofia is a private detective and former KGB agent suffering from amnesia. She entered the first Toshinden tournament to recover her past and she eventually learned that her memory had been tampered with by the Secret Society. When she heard that another fighter, Chaos, was suffering from the same fate as her, she entered the second tournament in hopes of saving him. Although she was unsuccessful in her mission, she managed to help bring down the fall of the Secret Society. However, she eventually discovered that she was being targeted by the Organization, and she entered the third tournament hosted by it, in order to help destroy the Organization.

Sofia was an unapologetically sexy female fighting game character of the 90's. Not many teenage boys were going to complain about a scantily clad woman with long legs, and a whip. (She was an early Ivy Valentine, that's for sure.) Naturally, Sofia's sex appeal was a huge selling point back in the PS1 days. To her credit, she was an interesting, likeable, and memorable character throughout the Battle Arena Toshinden series.

Although slightly generic by today's standards... Sofia's costume design and gimmick was original to fighting games at the time of her debut. Sofia came off as a solid heroine in Toshinden. She also acquired some pretty cool new attacks & improved outfits in the sequels. While Sofia is pretty much history and we probably never see her again in any future games... it's a good reminder of how far fighting game characters have come. One day, I hope to see Ivy Valentine versus Sofia. ;)
