Physical Description: Appearance 5 (Delicate)
She is an incredibly beautiful young woman, with dark umber hair that has a natural curl to it and falls down her back about halfway, and expressive eyes of an unusual mixture of grey and green - the actual dominant color shifts from grey to green, depending on if she is sad or happy, respectively.

Her complexion is a natural, soft ivory, but it is not unmarred - she has a collection of self-inflicted scars along both forearms, and there are several faded scars and brands on her back, the most notable of these being an hourglass on the back of her left shoulderblade; she has a piercing in her nose, on the left side, and she has a brand on the inside of her left forearm, near her elbow. She used to have tattoos, typically with a musical theme, but this is the case no longer.

Sophie is slender, but she is not as painfully thin as she was once known to be; her frame actually has a healthier, much more desirable shape, with tempting curves often accentuated by short shorts and clingy tee shirts. There is a notable grace to how she moves, but she doesn't have any noteworthy muscle definition - she actually doesn't look like she could defend herself in a physical confrontation, what with her 5'1 height and her maybe possible hundred pounds, even. Apart from all of her natural beauty, there is something about her that evokes the idea of innocence, contrary to the experience her mannerisms speak to.
Notable Merits/Flaws/Backgrounds:
The Cultist loves to sing, she does so often, and it is very easy to note that she has been gifted with an incredible voice. People also seem to treat her as though she is someone who should be protected; they are often amiable to her, and she is frequently pushed behind some knight of the moment, which is sometimes irritating to her. (Enchanting Voice)

Apart from desiring to protect her, most people view her positively, and it can be difficult to attribute negative intent or behavior to her, unless evidence exists otherwise; it's more likely someone else will be blamed than Sophie. (Sanctity)

Personality Overview: Charisma 5 (Endearing)
Sophie has a strong sense of personality that grabs people's attention and pulls them into her; she acts in a very lovable manner - maybe she's naive and wants people to like her, or maybe she's a sycophant, but either way, people tend to like her, or at least be amiable toward her. She is opinionated, but attempts to be tactful.

The Cultist is also extremely intuitive and hyperempathetic, to the point where some may believe her to be psychic, even normal people; this is sort of creepy is someone isn't used to it, and because of her unusual tie to emotions, she tends to cycle quickly through her own.

There is a near-supernatural air of incredible innocence that clings to her like a second skin that has often inspired people to protect her. Obviously, these things could coerce negative reactions from those who believe such things are weaknesses, or whom are simply unaffected by cute and helpless; she has had more than one occasion where someone tried to beat 'toughness' into her.
