|Anime||Episode 01 - I Became an Idol!|
Sophie Hojo (北条そふぃ Hōjō Sofi) is one of the main characters in the series. She is a 9th grader at Paprika Private Academy and a cool-type idol. Her preferred brand is Holic Trick and she has a Fan Club. Because Sophie has a weak body, she often goes into Fancy Mode.
Sophie has sharp purple eyes and long magenta hair that curls at her waist. She is very tall and is often described as "cool" by her fans. Sophie's appearance in public is actually just a side of her that happens when she consumes a Red Flash (aka a pickled plum/umeboshi).
Her real appearance - known as her Fancy Mode - consists of layered, messy hair while wearing a grey sweat suit. Since forming a unit with Laala and Mirei, she walks around PriPara in permanent Fancy Mode; only eating umeboshi before a performance. Additionally Sophie is in Fancy Mode whenever she attends school.
Eventually, her fancy mode hair style becomes her PriPara style to reflect on her ability to take care of her appearance, with the exception of a cowlick on her head.
Sophie is very popular at her school, and admired by many of the students. When she eats a Red Flash (pickled plum), her personality - likewise with her appearance - changes. Her public personality is cool and on top of things, while her other personality (aka 'Fancy Mode') is extremely disoriented and directionless. It is also hinted that she has low blood pressure. While she is in her Fancy Mode, she says "Pshu~" a lot. In Fancy Mode, she is quite naive and oblivious to what's around her, but since forming her friendship with Laala and Mirei, she has been working on improving herself.
Despite the fact that she's very absent-minded as her true self, Sophie happens to be very perceptive and can pick up on tiny details others would normally miss such as Unicorn's twitching tail that hinted at her lie, or Mirei's catch-pose being slightly off which hinted at something troubling her.
- Cosmo Hojo - Her older sister who always looks after Sophie and is considered her guardian.
- Usagi - Her previous PriPara manager. He is very controlling of her career and leaves Sophie with barely any freedom. After Episode 12, she ditches Usagi and joins SoLaMi♡SMILE under the management of Kuma.
- Sophie's Fan Club - Her fan club that basically worships her and follows her around. Unlike Usagi, they seem to care about Sophie in both Fancy Mode (Sophie's weak mode) and Cool Mode (Sophie's mode after eating pickled plums).
- Sadako - Leader of her fan club.
- Chanko - Bodyguard of her fan club.
- Laala Manaka - Sophie doesn't have a very close relationship with Laala, however, she often orders pickled plum pizza from Laala's family's restaurant. Sophie comments on how she's inspired to try her best after observing Laala's energy, and the two have traded Friends Ticket, indicating their status as acquaintances. As of Episode 12, they are now in a three-person unit together under the name of SoLaMi♡SMILE, along with Mirei.
- Mirei Minami - Sophie doesn't seem to be that close with Mirei, but is somewhat thankful to her for fixing her hair to make it seem like she wasn't in her fancy mode in Episode 10. In Episode 12, Sophie forms the unit SoLaMi♡SMILE with herself, Mirei, and Laala.
- Kuma - After Sophie leaves Usagi and joins SoLaMi♡SMILE, she is now managed by Kuma.
- Leona West - She and Leona seem to be good friends as Sophie gives him advice and Leona gave her back her PriTicket.
- Gaaruru - She is the only person aside from Faruru who could understand Gaaruru before she was able to talk again. When Gaaruru unleashed the kaijū hologrammation, Sophie was the one who protected her from the falling debris which in turn changed her attitude toward the idol and began helping her when Sophie had reached her limit.
- White Swan Coord - Her first casual coord in the PriPara world until Episode 13.

Hōjō (北条): Hōjō can be split up into two. The hō means north, while the jō means lines. It can be roughly translated into northern line. This can be considered a pun as Laala and Mirei's last names translates to center and south respectively, while she is north.
