XIV

FFXIV Sophia

Sophia, the Goddess (女神ソフィア, Megami Sofia?) is a primal from Final Fantasy XIV, who appears in version 3.4, "Soul Surrender".

StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
History tells of a Meracydian nation comprised of a multitude of races, the foundations of which were built on the worship of a single deity. The "Goddess," as she was simply known, graced the souls of her worshipers with perfect equilibrium, binding their disparate societies in gilded chains of harmony.
—Official description

Sophia was created near the end of the Third Astral Era by the collective faith of the numerous races of a Meracydian nation to repel invaders from the Allagan Empire. Though powerful, Sophia was captured and imprisoned with the other members of the Warring Triad in Azys Lla, where advanced Allagan technology drains her power while keeping her physical form intact. After the Allagan Empire fell, the Warring Triad remained in suspended animation for centuries until the actions of Archbishop Thordan VII weakened their seals with Sophia the second to nearly escape imprisonment after Sephirot was defeated.

Guided by Unukalhai, the Warrior of Light and Krile venture to Containment Bay P1T6 to unseal and defeat Sophia before she can escape and unleash unthinkable catastrophe.

Spoilers end here.

Creation and developmentEdit

Sophia, like Sephirot and Zurvan, are based on their Final Fantasy VI counterparts. Sophia is inspired by the Goddess. Her name is taken from the working name she was initially given before simply being called Goddess in Final Fantasy VI.

VoiceEdit

Her Japanese voice actor is Rie Tanaka.[1]

Musical themesEdit

Like Sephirot, a rearranged version of "Battle to the Death" from Final Fantasy VI plays in the first phase of the battle against Sophia. A new song called "Equilibrium" plays during Sophia's second phase, unique to her.
