Sophie is the heroine of our book. Not that she'd ever really wanted to be a hero, not the type that runs off into danger anyway. Her taste in heroics runs more towards Nurse Nebula, co-star of Spicy Space Stories, Sophie's favorite comic. Neb (as she is fondly called) mainly saves lives (when she isn't pining over her unrequited love for Doctor Quark). Very unlike Sophie's other comic heroine Pirate Peg (also featured in Spicy Space Stories, who often takes violence as the first and last resort (but only against those deserving it). But now we've already strayed far from the topic of this page, which is Sophie.
When our adventure starts Sophie is working in the vast Museum of Lost Things on the asteroid of Sysyphus; endlessly cataloguing the plethora of oddball items that have accumulated there. Except for her robot assistant Roshi, she remains totally isolated from the world, free to indulge in her love of solitude, and her love of comics. She would have remained perfectly content with this arrangement had not fate (or something more devious) intervened.
Sophie is embroiled in an epoch spanning war between magic and science, in which the comics she loves are actually coded histories, and she has somehow become a magnet for all sorts of cosmic weirdness.
