Pistis Sophia is a powerful archon.
Pistis Sophia, called the Ascetic due to her monk-like tendencies, holds no abode but travels the misty hills of her layer, helping out all who greet her along the way.
Pistis Sophia is named after the Pistis Sophia, a Gnostic text thought to have been written between the 3rd and 4th centuries CE. Furthermore, the female divinity of Gnosticism is known as Sophia, and the concept of the Hebdomad itself also comes from Gnosticism, though the names of the Gnostic archons differ from those found in the game.
