The Walking Dead

Sophia is one of the few remaining survivors of the original Atlanta band. Sophia is a young blonde girl who survived with her mother Carol; she is now the only surviving member of her family.

Sophia presumably lived a normal life; she was frequently doted upon by her mother. As the outbreak occurred, she lost her father to suicide and was in the process of being driven to her aunt's house in Atlanta.



The two could not make it into the city, so they stayed at Dale's camp that he and Andrea and Amy had set up. Also at the camp was a man named Glenn, and a family of four with twin sons that were Sophia's age. Sophia spent most of her time at the camp playing with the twin boys, Ben and Billy, until a woman named Lori Grimes showed up at camp with her son, and a family friend.

The Prison
Sophia and her mother were among the survivors that moved into the Prison. At this point in the series, Sophia asks Carl to be her boyfriend, to which he eventually agrees. That time period was particularly difficult for Carol, who saw her relationship with Tyreese disintegrate due to the interference of Michonne. Sophia did not receive a lot of support or attention from her mother at that time and eventually had to deal with the terrible trauma of her suicide. When Tyreese was thought to be dead, having been surrounded and left in a gym full of zombies, Carol commented on the fact that Sophia didn't really register it, and that all the death going on confused her. After Carol's suicide, she remained in a catatonic state for the remainder of her stay at the prison.

Hershel's Farm Redux
After having come across Maggie Greene and Glenn, Rick, Carl and Michonne all meet up with the other survivors who left the prison prior to the Woodbury assault. Carl sees Sophia and tells her that now they both have dead moms. Sophia says that her mom isn't dead, and crying in the next room. Sophia had apparently repressed all memories of Carol as her mother, and now believed Maggie to be her actual biological mother. She still, however, remembers Carl and the other members of the group she had met before.

Alexandria Safe-Zone
Along with Carl, Sophia is one of the two remaining children of the group to reach the Alexandria Safe-Zone. She appears to adapt well, as she eagerly participated in a Halloween event for the kids and enjoyed some candy for the first time. She has even taken to calling Glenn her father, though its unknown if she's repressed her memories of her true father or she truly is bonding with him.

Alexandria Safe-Zone Chaos
When a horde of zombies break into the Safety Zone, Maggie and Sophia take shelter in Rick's house with Rick, Carl, Michonne, Denise, and Morgan. When Rick hatches a plan to leave and make an escape, Sophia and Maggie stay behind in his house. They do this mainly because both Maggie and Sophia are slow runners and would never make it. Maggie, wanting to protect Sophia, chooses to stay behind. It's not known if she knows about Carl being shot or if he'll survive, or if it'll affect their friendship.

Alexandria Safe Zone Aftermath
After Carl woke up from his coma, she is seen with him reading and asked him about his eye. He tells her that it doesn't hurt as much now. She says that it's unfair that nothing bad happens to her, Carl then snaps at her that both her mom and dad are dead and Glenn and Maggie are just two people who took her in; he then apologies for what he had said. She says it's OK and tells him that she knows Glenn and Maggie aren't her real mother and father and that she is just pretending. She is later seen running up to Glenn and Maggie when they return, telling them that she is just pretending that they are her mother and father and that she isn't scared anymore about the fact that her real mom and dad are dead.

The Saviors, Glenn's death, and Life at The Hilltop
Glenn, Maggie, and Sophia decide to live at the hilltop. On the way there, Negan intrudes and picks someone to kill. He goes over Sophia and Maggie, to Glenn. He brutally beats Glenn with his baseball bat, Lucille. After he leaves, Maggie begins swinging at Rick and hits him. Carl pulls his gun on her, Sophia attacks Carl and bites his arm. She gets pulled off by Heath and the others pack up to leave. She stands alone and Carl walks up to talk to her. She wonders why everyone in her family dies and wonders if it's her fault. Carl tells her it's meant to be and they leave. Maggie tells Rick her and Sophia are staying at the hilltop. Sophia says a tearful goodbye to Carl. Rick, Heath, Carl, and Michonne go back to Alexandria and Sophia & Maggie stay at the hilltop. Sophia's last appearance as of now is Issue 101.


Carl Grimes
Being his childhood "girlfriend", Carl and Sophia seem to get along pretty well. They are often seen kissing and holding hands, and pretty much together having fun. Carl usually protects her from walkers.

Carol was her previous and biological mother. After she committed suicide, like her father, Ed, Sophia didn't talk for months. For a time, Sophia pretended Maggie Greene is her biological mother. Later, she admits to Carl, and then Maggie and Glenn that she has been pretending that they were her biological parents. She admits that she does remember Carol and her father as her biological parents.

Maggie Greene
Maggie unofficially adopted Sophia (or she sees Maggie as her mother) after they and everyone else escaped from the Prison.

Since Glenn is married to Maggie Greene, Sophia sees Glenn as her father. Their relationship hadn't been shown to be as strong as Sophia and Maggie's, but even so, Sophia saw him as a father. When Negan beat Glenn to death with his baseball bat, Sophia was absolutely devastated and clung to Maggie very hard crying.

Abraham Ford
No real relation has been shown between Sophia and Abraham but she seemed heavily saddened when Abraham died.
