SO me and a friend sat down and watched a bunch of Sofia the first episodes. First was the premier that started it all.
As we watched as Sofia cast the sleeping spell it dawned on me she was able to cast such an advanced spell with out any magic lessons aside from being told to say the words… After that she locates the counter spell. Now for those who are fans of fantasy, one would know that casting a spell is very hard. But casting the counter spell is even more difficult.
AGAIN she reads the spell and without any real instruction she casts a counter spell of great magnitude.
When we reached the Apprentice episode. Yes she is seen having difficulty casting spells but that was because she was rushing it. Once Cedric got her to slow down and take her time on the spells she was able to cast them with ease… But the real kicker was when they were preparing for her test and Cedrics show they show Sofia casting the spells without moving her lips! At this point the ability to do magic without SAYING the incantations is the mark of a talented and POWERFUL magic user!
Granted she goes back to using words during the magic test it still doesn’t change the fact she had done magic without the spoken word. So far Cedric has NOT shown any sign that he has such ability nor has his parents….
Is all this a sign that Sofia is destined to one day be a powerful Sorceress?
In all honesty, I hope so.
We have seen Cedric levitate things without any special words though.
But it seems Sofia has more latent magical ability than either of her siblings. I mean, she’s not genetically related to them. Maybe we will get some backstory thing about her father having magical prowess, or maybe she’s just a little anomaly!
I hope so!
I wonder about Sofia’s birth father. But I am willing to bet she herself is a ‘little anomaly’
