Sophia is a very curious person who loves to try everything particularly anything about technology such as electronics and computers. She spends most of her time doing Research and Development for both work and as pastime activity. She colloquially refer to herself as a Technomancer which is a wordplay between Technology and -mancer meaning a practitioner. (Note that this is not related to the game “The Technomancer” that was released on June 28, 2016, she has been using the word before the game was released.)

Sophia is best described by the following words:
Technomancer, Linkle, Chefköchin, Sith, Pastafarian, Gayelle, PC Master Race

Following are Sophia's emblem, logo and seal.


(Click the image to enlarge.)

The personal emblem of Sophia is composed of the main symbol, the owl, which symbolize intelligence. The second symbol, the crescent moon, symbolizes light at night or guidance through the darkness. The owl is generated using ASCII characters which symbolizes technology. The symbol below the owl is a secret message leading to her date of birth. The 3 symbols are encapsulated in a sphere which symbolizes heavenly body and the wave beneath it is the gravitational wave caused by the sphere as a heavenly body. An inscription is written at the bottom part of the sphere is a secret message.


The personal logo of Sophia is the simplified version of the emblem mostly used on web site and applications with limited space which makes viewing the emblem less efficient.

印章 (inshō)
