Before the Crash

Original Timeline
(Oceanic Flight 815 crashes on the Island)

In High School


Sophia was a fan of DriveShaft.

Sophia was a fan of DriveShaft because she thought Charlie was a drug-free rock star. (Complications)

On her sixteenth birthday, Sophia participated in a gymnastics meet. After completing her routine, her mother fell over in pain. Her mother died later that day. Her father blamed Sophia for her death. (Ashes to Ashley)

In her junior year of high school, Sophia met Andrew Wilson. The day after meeting Andrew, Sophia tried out for cheerleading, but twisted her leg during her routine. She was comforted after her failure by Andrew. (Tryouts) About a month later, Andrew was tutoring Sophia on her birthday when Sophia's dad kicked him out of the house, thinking that he was going to get Sophia pregnant. The next day, at school, Andrew gave Sophia a locket that he had intended to give her the day before. (A Friend Indeed)

The time eventually came for graduation, Andrew gave Sophia a ride to the ceremonies. (Emotional Support) Sophia heard Tanya Connor, one of her classmates, insult her, wondering how Sophia had graduated. (See the World) Before the end of high school, Sophia got her yearbook signed by Andrew. (Regrets)

After High School

Months after graduating, Sophia left her home, with barely a word from her father. (Emotional Support) Sophia bought a train ticket and traveled to the west coast where she got the cheapest ticket she could find, in order to try to see the world. The ticket was bought was to Australia. After a few weeks in Australia, Sophia found herself out of money. However, she was taken in by Lindsey Littleton, who had an extra room for her. (See the World)

Sophia became good friends with Lindsey Littleton, occasionally helping her in the garden. One day, after months of living with Lindsey, a drunk man came to their door, looking for his daughter. He was finally forced away by another woman. A few days later, Sophia got an email containing the obituary of her best friend, Andrew Wilson. The "death" of her friend destroyed her spirits and she decided to leave Sydney. (Class Newsletter)

Sophia got up early, intending to leave without Lindsey noticing. However, Lindsey was already awake. Sophia explained that she was going home. Lindsey told her that she would be missed. Then she gave Sophia some money for a taxi. Once Sophia was at the airport and her bags had been checked, she started to cry. (Gate 23)
