"Would you like to buy some flowers? Please?"
―Sofie[src]

Sofie is a Nord child seen walking around Windhelm with a flower basket. She sells flowers and flower baskets as a way to make money to feed herself. She can be found sleeping outside in front of Niranye's house next to a barrel.

Her mother died when Sofie was young and her father was a Stormcloak soldier who was killed in battle. The Dragonborn has the option to adopt her through the new adoption mechanic.

BugsEdit

This section contains bugs related to Sofie. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , or  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
Click to see list of bugs
  •  PC   360   PS3  Sometimes, when the Dragonborn chooses to adopt Sofie, if they are living in Lakeview Manor (Falkreath), Sofie will say that she will collect her things and meet them at the house, however she will remain at place and not move. If she is approached again, she repeats that she is collecting her things but does not move anyway. To fix this, another home with the children's bedroom improvement is needed. Approach Sofie and tell her to go there. Find her there and tell her to move to Lakeview Manor, she will appear there after some time, normally.
  •  PS3    PC   Sometimes, when the Dragonborn chooses to adopt Sofie, if they are living in Honeyside (Riften) Sofie will say that she will collect her things and meet them at the house, however she will remain in Windhelm. If she is approached again, she will say "I...I have a home again. A family. I almost can't believe it".
    • A possible fix is to tell your wife/husband to move to another home. you will not be able to tell Sofie directly, she will just keep saying "I...I have a home again. A family. I almost can't believe it". 
    • Even if Sofie moves into your home after telling your spouse to move somewhere else you may still be unable to click on her to talk or perform another action, but she does start acting normal, making comments about her new home and the people around.
  •  PC   360   PS3  Sometimes, after she has been adopted, it is impossible to give her gifts like dresses, dolls or wooden swords. It would appear this has something to do with her old trader status, she may be keeping her shop inventory as her own inventory. As this includes an increasing number of baskets, this makes her overencumbered, causing the message "the gift is too heavy to carry" to appear. It seems the only way to prevent this is by buying all of her baskets before adoption. (The baskets may not appear on the items Sofie can sell, making it virtually impossible to gift her anything if playing on a PS3 or Xbox)
  •  PC   It is possible to use the console command "removeallitems" to remove everything in Sofie's inventory after adoption. She is then available to give items and receive the "The Gift of Charity".
  • Sometimes, after adopting her, Sofie can be seen running around the town with no clothes on, and all of her clothes are in her chest. To fix this, retrieve the dresses, and give them to her. She should then re-equip the dress.
  •  360   Sometimes she will refer to a female Dragonborn as "Pa".
  • She may use the dresser in the upstairs bedroom area insted of the child chest at the end of her bed in the child wing (no known fix yet)
