Colonel Sophie Moore was a former roommate and girlfriend of Kate Kane at West Point, where she held the rank of Brigade S-3 (Operations).[1] After Kate resigned from the Academy, Sophie remained, hiding her sexual orientation and eventually becoming a colonel in charge of a military college close to Gotham City.

Shortly before she was to begin teaching, Sophie ran into Kate by chance at a charity carnival. After some initial awkwardness at the unexpected reunion, the two briefly chatted before Kate had to take a call from her fiancée Maggie Sawyer. After finding out Kate was engaged, Sophie later attempted to schedule a friendly lunch with her, to no avail.


Abilities

  • Acrobatics: A required course at West Point is Military Movement, which teaches principles broadly similar to Parkour.
  • Firearms: A required cadet skill.
  • Martial Arts:
    • Modern Army Combatives: A requirement for West Point cadets, MAC is a hybrid of various forms, such as:
    • Boxing: Though boxing was not a requirement for female cadets during her time at the Academy, Sophie still participated in the sport while there, along with Kate. On one occasion she defeated Kate in a private, unauthorized bare-knuckled sparring match, and is implied to have lost to Kate in an earlier official bout.[2]
  • Military Protocol
  • Pedagogy: She is an instructor at Gotham Military Academy.[3]
  • Swimming: Survival Swimming is a required course at West Point.
  • A character matching Sophie's appearance and historic relevance appeared in Batwoman (Volume 2) #32, but was referred to as "Josie". This was later corrected.
  • Her nickname at West Point (possibly from her participation in boxing) was "Gimme", a pun on her last name.[1]
  • Sophie holding the rank of colonel is an error, since by law the rank can only be earned after 22 years of military service, and that amount of time has not passed in-universe since Sophie's graduation.
  • Like Kate, she also completed Air Assault School and the U.S. Army Airborne School.[4]
