Sophie Sawallisch is a Great War veteran and the supreme commander of the Flame Haze Army, and she knows Shana.
Sophie Sawallisch is flame haze contracted to "Thunder Blade of Banishment" Takemikazuchi, which take the vessel called "Donner", a blue-star shaped cross on Sophie's veil. She holds the tittle "Braider of Trembling Might" and her flame color is dazzling purple lighting. Her flame itself is not flame at all, but lightning.
She has a kind heart and is a mother figure to other Flame Haze, and she gain her famous nickname "Mutter Courage" or Mother Courage. In the war, she showed her elegant potential in strategy and was able to become the supreme commander of the Flame Haze Army.
Sophie is an old woman (above 40 years old in appearance) in nun dress and has a habit of making the sign of the cross even when she does not concern with the clergy anymore.
Sophie was actually a nun.
Sophie and her friends, Alex and Denis, came together at the town of Osterode to fight against Töten Glocke, an organization led by Crimson Lord named Asiz. Asiz's plan was to perform a method called "City Devourer", jizaiho to gain great power by creating many torches. Flame Hazed tried to stop him to start City Devourer, but they're failed because Asiz successfully achieved the great amount of Power of Existence.
With the help of Mathilde Saint-Omer and Wilhelmina Carmel, they succeeded into disposing one of the Nine Eternal Divine Scales, nine Crimson Lords serving under Asiz's command; namely Huwawa. Sophie then was picked up to be the supreme commander with "Archer of Aurora" Karl Berwald, as vice commander. It also marked the official formation of the first "Flame Haze Army" and the beginning of the famous "Great War". Eighteen years after the formation, Asiz eventually managed to get Nachtigall, the final complement to fulfill his main goal, the "Grand Scheme", losing Ninurta, another Nine Eternal Divine Scales in the battle. Five days later, the Flame Haze Army marched to foot of the Harz mountain range, preparing for the final battle at the Töten Glocke's base, situated on the highest peak, the Brocken.
Sophie divide the army into two groups; Karl's and hers. She ordered the attack on Töten Glocke's army that was waiting for them in the dark forest. In short time, Karl, who led the group himself unlike Sophie, managed to kill Sokar, another Nine Eternal Divine Scales. This led to the rampage of another frontline army's general, Ullikummi, to use his Unrestricted Spell, "Iron Hammer of Nesa", brushing away most Sophie's subordinates in the progress. While the soldiers were panicked and stampeded, Sophie decided to participate the battle herself. As Karl went to pursue a certain army that was retreating, he took most of his men with him thus weaken the army supporting Sophie's group. Without leader, Ullikummi's army managed to strike at the weakest point and push the Flame Haze Army back. But after long battle, Sophie managed to kill Ullikummi and was able to see the fierce battle between the Angel of Blue Coffins and God of Atonement which ended with the leader of Töten Glocke's death.
Sophie meets the Flame Haze of the Nietono no Shana in Eastern Europe. Seeing that the girl is lacked of feminism, she blamed Alastor and taught the young girl about the manner of the Flame Haze at the present time and how a girl should behave (since she saw a girl walking around in the room with no clothes). After a short time of staying, the girl bid farewell to her "mentor" and left.
When Bal Masqué and its leader waged war against all the Flame Haze around the world, Sophie is chosen once again to be the supreme commander of the newly-formed Flame Haze Army. She joins the battle with Shana and the others.
