Sophia Leigh is a character and an enemy from Tomb Raider III and its add-on The Lost Artifact.


Black, neat clothes and accessories, blonde hair and heavy makeup. Appearance indicates that looks are important to her.



In the first level of the London section, Thames Wharf, Lara is attacked by a man who tells her that he is working for Sophia Leigh, like his father and grandfather before him. Confused, Lara asks him how old Sophia is and he replies that she's about 30 years old.

At the end of the second level, Lara meets a faceless man who was one of Sophia's failed experiments. He tells her Sophia is testing treatments for everlasting beauty and keeps the best results for herself.

Lara then meets Sophia before the Level City. Sophia asks Lara would she like to join her company. Lara says all she wants is the artefact. Sophia laughs and says "In your next life!" Lara chases her out of the building on to some rooftops.

Sophia is in possession of the Eye of Isis, one of the four artefacts that come from the heart of an ancient meteorite.

Return from the Dead

Sophia returns in the Lost Artifact level Reunion were she has the Hand of Rathmore. It appears that Sophia and her minions tried to create mutants at a secret underwater facility using the Hand of Rathmore as a catalyst for evolution (Sleeping with the Fishes). The purpose of these experiments is not revealed.


Sophia uses the powers of Eye of Isis and Hand of Rathmore depending on the game that's being played for shooting green energy bolts of Compressed atmospherical energy.


In Tomb Raider III Sophia cannot be killed by bullets, so she must be lured to a metallic beam where she can be electrocuted (when Lara shoots a nearby fuse box). Sophia attacks Lara by shooting green energy bolts at her. Even though her attacks are easy to miss, the energy attacks explode on contact and smaller sparks fly out and can hit Lara, draining life. If hit by a fully charged attack, Lara can lose up to three quaters of her health.

In The Lost Artifact Sophia is not immune to bullets and can be defeated easier once she has climbed to the last platform (where the Hand of Rathmore sits).
