Sophia was a single child, rich girl who went to college for history and learned a bunch of stuff. She never really spent much time hanging out with people and preferred books and things of the past. Her isolation went so far that she never spent much time with her parents who were constantly busy with running the family business. Her fashion sense reflects her interest in the bygone era and her only true friends were Al, her butler since she was young, and her new stable friendship with Aileen Daily. Her world views were further expanded through Aileen’s interest and passion in Japanese comics and animation which pulled her closer to the modern era than anything had before. Sophia became friends with AoNingen, an acquaintance she met through an internet forum about dolls and fashion. Little did Sophia realize that she would soon be pulled into a whole mess of events that would cause her death and eventual departure from a world she cared little about and into a walking history book.
Everything started when Sophia purchased a moonstone pyramid to donate to her favorite museum she was a large donator to. To blow off some steam she accompanied Aileen to an outing… which ended up being a seedy bar in the warehouse district where ruffians attack the patrons and also steal the family Rolls Royce from Al. They eluded the police with @VodkaDrunk, who was later known as Dmitri, who took them to an actual bar where people recognized her and her father’s business. Sophia’s assumptions that the world was too crazy of a place to deal with was only furthered from Aileen’s strange acquaintances.
A few days later she was invited out to a club by two of Aileen’s fans and was even invited to a private booth by Dmitri. There she bought the most expensive things possible to not be shown up by her new ‘host’ and even learned that Dmitri somehow acquired her beloved pyramid. Unfortunately the night took a turn for the worse when she followed the two fans downstairs and somehow ended up in a kidnapping attempt for her father’s money. A crazy fight started when the group found her and the chair she was tied to may have killed one of her attackers which she saw later in the hospital window. Sophia figured it was just her lack of sleep due to all of the craziness now thrust into her life and ignored it.
Things got even crazier when Aileen gets kidnapped for this alleged ‘Master’ who is bothering the group Sophia finds herself with most days. She witnesses some sort of ill hobo take a stun gun and even punched another one of her friends, Lia, straight through the roof. Dmitri blew him up with a grenade or something and we all made it out alive… Even Aileen was later found okay somewhere else.
Well, just when I figured things would become a little more normal Sophia encounters a Japanese woman named Natsumi Yamasaki at the bar that keeps making moves and stealing her panties. Fortunately, things return to more interesting times when Dmitri takes us all out to an auction for his birthday. We bought a bunch of stuff including some ‘medallions of shadow.’ The next day Sophia woke up with one around her neck and her fate was forever changed. After spending some time trying to figure out what and how to remove them they took a break at the Muddy Boot where Sophia enjoyed her last night as a normal person with Natsumi. The group’s investigation eventually leads them to a monolith and hidden quarters beneath it. After investigating the group went to leave but Sophia triggered a death trap and was killed in an explosion. Sophia awoke in a black and white world where a flaming skeleton offered her another chance at life which she accepted without hesitation. Thus, she awoke as a Sin Eater and was forever scarred with the reminder that she was truly broken.
After her ‘accident,’ Sophia spent a large amount of time with her favorite doll Margaret who provides an extremely comforting aura whenever she holds her close. The burning rage inside her eventually lead her to seek out who killed her which lead to discovering that her new friend Natsumi was in a deal with Auto Marcellus to reclaim her clan’s scroll. Natsumi became the first person she could talk to about the supernatural forces that she was now a part of. Sophia wishes to reclaim what was taken from Natsumi and have her return home. Unfortunately, Aileen and Layla were caught up with some crazy hallucination drug and terrorize a local bank where Sophia pulled their asses out of the fire by impersonating a FBI agent in riot gear. Cinder, Sophia’s Geist, is fed up with Sophia’s reluctance to go after Auto Marcellus further than she has and begins to use powers to communicate with her. Due to this, she triggers a change in Aeden, a more down to earth individual whom she enjoyed the company of and tolerated her presence.
Sophia found a Metal Rod of sorts at the bank and with Natsumi they crack it open in the Muddy Boot’s bathroom. It releases some sort of Hindu mantra spirit thing that sends a wave of appreciation before leaving. Later, Aeden takes the group along to an old subway tunnel where they discover a dead worker named Mark who was killed by gators. Sophia cremates his remains so he will be at peace but vows to avenge him. Sophia learns that Aeden has some level of ghost powers and is super bros with him where they investigate Marcellus at the harbor and end up stranded after they get one upped by mage douchebags. Afterwards, Sophia gets a letter that Natsumi was taken and is now sealed in a tube at the Harvard Museum. Sophia changes all of her efforts into getting her back. She also hears from their new, homeless friend Horizon that the rest of the group is apparently mages.
The group gears up and goes back into the subway system to fight the gators in the sewers where they encounter a cult and together with Cinder they lay down some smack down on Het’Eye, the Gator God. Horizon bitchslaps the shit out of it and afterwards Sophia burns the hell out of the mummy remains. Sophia gained a death mask that she can use for plasm as well. Aileen and Layla have their court case for their crazy drug thing and are given community service as their fine. Together with Aeden, Sophia found an old abandoned train car which they worked to restore. Sophia meets Miles at the Muddy Boot and the gang goes to China Town to find some artifacts to trade for Natsumi. They find some stuff and kill another villain of the week that Marcellus sends after them. Unfortunately, the group is attacked at night by a riot squad but Sophia gets to torch at least one with a homemade Molotov. They are eventually saved by another group of mages and Aeden, Aileen, and Lia joined the Mage School where Sophia escaped via getting run over by a car. After, the group skips town to Colorado for an anime convention.
Sophia burns a few more things on her road trip fighting a small town of yokels and does her best to thwart a werewolf attack at the convention but a lot of people die. The only good thing in Colorado was the mage community that seemed a lot more tolerant of magical beings outside of mages. After returning to Boston Aileen and Sophia work through the deal to get Natsumi back. She returns to the train car and lets Natsumi out with Horizon’s help. Sophia does her best to make her comfortable but runs off on another adventure with Aeden when he teleports himself somewhere. There she meets a crazy alchemy dude named Albedo and his awesome skeleton friend Mr. Giggles. They share a few good puns and watch The Bachelor together on TV. The group finds out that there is an attack planned to wipe out the werewolf faction on the outskirts of town and goes to defend them. There, the group is attacked by Malleus Malifacarum, a religious group who wants to stamp out witch craft. The werewolves were able to create a portal to The Shadow where the elders, women, and children escaped before the raid began. During the battle, Sophia is disconnected from Cinder and panics, abandoning everything else in the pursuit to restore their bond. The swat team that attacked them has some sort of tank that housed spirits that were being forced to fight – Project Luna’s Hammer. A woman by the name of Lane Albury – Science Division -1st announces their victory and the group flees but not before Aileen is severely injured by a flaming sword dude but Lala fortunately blows him a new asshole with her magic as the group flees. Sophia calls Horizon, Natsumi, and Al to get them to the train car where the group plans to leave to the Shadow to lay low for a while. Sophia leaves Al behind to tend to her personal affairs in the real world and leaves without telling anyone else.
The shadow started out as a miserable experience of camping and no cell service but soon turned into time well spent with Natsumi learning all sorts of survival skills and quality time with her. The group soon meets Flint Brewbury, a dwarf, whom they assist with getting away from a group of rat people who are trying to kill him. The group starts their travel to the nearby city of Arkham to get Stephanie, the injured werewolf leader, to an actual hospital. The group encounters more rats and fights a giant rat ogre with an exploding green crystal rifle. The next day the group encounters more rats and Dmitri is killed in combat. The group mourns his death and both Aeden and Sophia use their magic to someday restore him. Aeden keeps his soul while Sophia cremates his body and keeps his ashes. The group runs through the warzone of the rats and blow up the weapon facility looking area with an explosive rifle and several chain reactions. Sophia has another moment of brilliance where she has Aeden combine an arrow and the exploding spear together which Lala shoots into a large ‘doom bell’ which causes a magnificent explosion. Unfortunately, it also attracted the attention of the rats but the group manages to escape to Arkham before the real raid begins.
Sophia meets with Lt. Ruthers and informs them about the doom bell and other information regarding the rats and weapons. They stay at the Albatross using Margaret as payment since they do not have any gold. The group goes under the guise of Mr. and Mrs. Miller with Aeden with Aileen and Lala as their maids. Sophia is now in her element as a noble during the Victorian Era and takes point at the party thrown for ‘the heroes of Arkham.’ There Aeden and Sophia come up with their backstory of running the Miller Brewing company from Milwaukee where they brew Miller Light Ale. Aeden married into the family with Sophia being the powerful mage that combined with his family for the brewing prowess. Sophia meets Ajuline Decoutuex who is stuck in her study and cannot get to Kings Port. She also meets Theo Hodin and his friend Melton Joseph who makes 10,000 gold a year. Sophia uses a lot of magic to impress the party and establish herself as a mage. The party ends when Aileen finds a bee girl who is subsequently named ‘cake’ after the food she was after.
That night, the city is attacked by rats and together the group makes it to the north gate to defend from the rat’s siege. Sophia eventually burns the poisonous incense siege weapon and the group meets with Lt. Ruthers and further strategizes about the defense of the city. The group then goes into the sewers where the rats are attacking from to stop wherever they are coming from. The group eventually rescues some nobles and destroys a large room to seal up the sewers from invasion at the cost of a city block. Sophia is stabbed for the first time by a rat and panics casting spells at random as a result. Although she has died before, being on the frontlines and taking hits was not her thing. After defeating another large rat monstrosity, Sophia assists Aeden in putting out fires and salvaging what they can of the city. Sophia dupes Aileen to thinking that her phone works and is subsequently dragged to the mage college in an effort to cure Flint’s odd behavior of eating clothing and fixing her phone. At the college they meet a professor by the name of Ik’th who is freakishly tall and has several eyes and voices. She does however have the ability to send them back to Boston. Aileen’s phone is taken to find the correct Boston and the group goes to a party at Theo’s house. There the group learns about the Hodin Railway and how their train car that they abandoned is just a mile away from a line. Theo also proposes restoring the Adventurer’s Guild with us funding it that we begin discussions with Theo’s Father. Flint, being the drunken dwarf that he is, wandered off from the dinner party and went drinking with Candice at a secret pirate bar and was accosted to join a pirate crew. We eventually saved him but also made a bet with a pirate and made him mad at the same time. It all shook out in the end but we also learned that Marcellus is at the Mage College….
