[edit] Plot

[edit] Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box

Sophia was the youngest daughter of a family of nobles in Folsense (who is never named in-game). Fifty years prior to the start of the game, Sophia met Anton at a ball hosted by his father, Duke Herzen, and the two were instantly taken with each other. After meeting numerous times, they became engaged. However, Sophia discovered she was pregnant with Anton's child and, fearing for the unborn child's safety due to the gas released by the Folsense Gold Mine, fled from the ailing town.

She would later go on to found the village of Dropstone and give birth to a daughter, who would later marry Mr. Anderson and give birth to her own daughter, Katia. After living in the village for forty-nine years she passed away, leaving behind a letter for Anton in the Elysian Box explaining her reasons behind her sudden departure from Folsense.
