|“||That Irregular is definitely the one stirring things up at the moment... But none of the Elders, including me, trusts that amateur. That's why I tried to give Karaka the thorn.||”|
Sophia Tan was one of the Elders that opposed Baam and tried to melt Baam and the Thorn together and give the Thorn to Karaka during the Workshop Battle. She opposed Baam because she distrusted Baam and thought him to be an amateur.
Appearance and Personality
She is lightly tanned, with pink hair and blue eyes. She is a very cautious person but is noted to be a hard-liner. Although she supported the other Elders into having Karaka kill Baam and acquire the Thorn, over the years, Baam's improvement and feats have intrigued her, though she still refused to act to help him when approached by Hwa Ryun. However, after Baam proved his mettle by defeating the Test Ranker Pan, Sophia was the first to tell the Elders to get ready to provide Baam the assistance he needs.
She is seen talking with another person over her Pocket about the conflict at the Wall of Peaceful Coexistence and Baam. After learning of the losses suffered by the Canine People, she notes how Khel Hellam's efforts to stop the war only caused him to be manipulated by Zahard. She says that Luslec hopes Baam will grow from the current challenges and if Luslec were to act now then a Family Head would intervene, resulting in all-out war and Baam losing his chance to get involved. She goes on to say that none of the Elders, including herself, trust Baam because he is an amateur and that is the reason why she tried to give Karaka the thorn. However, she admits that she and the other Elders will act once they're sure of Baam.
Hwa Ryun later notes that Sophia has taken an interest in Baam but still will not act when she reached out to her.
After Baam's success in defeating the Test Ranker Pan, Sophia, no longer able to deny Baam the support he needs, prepares for the incoming battle.
Powers and Abilities
Her powers are unknown, but given that she is a High Ranker, she should be quite powerful.
- (To FUG) "...Looks like Khel Hellam didn't get his way after all. He fell into a trap trying to stop an even greater war."
