"John... Take care of our children and take care of yourself. I'm sorry, I know that doesn't help or explain anything, but it's true. I can't stand watching you and the kids suffer, knowing what's going to happen to me ... and what I'll become. Better to save you that pain. I love you more than anything, Sophie. (sic)"
—Michonne reading Sophia's suicide note (Determinant)[src]

Sophia Fairbanks[1] is a character mentioned in Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: Michonne. She is the wife of John and mother of four children: Greg, Samantha, Alex and James.


Chesapeake Bay, Virginia

Sophia had a loving family, consisting of her husband, three sons, and a daughter. She was said to have heart disease.


In the early days of the apocalypse, Sophia and her family made their house (assisted by Sam's childhood friend Paige) into a shelter. About three years into the apocalypse, she killed herself and was buried by her husband John and daughter Sam. John lied to Alex and James, their youngest, about how she died, not wanting them to know of her suicide.
