Quick Biography

Sonmi-451 is a type of clone known as a "fabricant", whom the reader meets as a dinery server. Later, Sonmi, unique to her kind, is able to "ascend," that is to gain a personality as well as acquire and retain knowledge. She becomes something of a novelty in the futuristic world of Nea So Copros and is taken to Taemosan University so that she might be studied. Her post-grad student is a lush and a slacker, and she has much time to increase her knowledge by reading. Sonmi-451 is "rescued" from her negligent, post-grad student by Professor Mephi and Hae-Joo Im, who encourage her learning and even enroll her in university classes. Hae-Joo Im takes to escorting her on weekends to meals (although fabricants don't eat as "pure-bloods" do) and even to a movie (ironically, "The Ghastly Ordeal of Timothy Cavendish" from "Timothy Cavendish" chapters). Sonmi-451 is whisked away from the university as the corporate "Judas" seize the professor. She and Hae-Joo Im race across the Neo So Copros countryside for weeks until she is persuaded to compose a fabricant "Bill of Rights." Within hours of handing over her document, she is seized by corporate operatives and imprisoned. She tells her story to an archivist (historian), who records in on an orison (a memory egg).

In the primitive world of the "Sloosh'a's Crossin'" chapter, Sonmi has become the society's god, the one to whom they pray for good crops, good fortune, and safety.

Physical Abilities

Doesn't eat normal food like a "pureborn" human (ie. one created the ol'-fashioned way), but instead, consumes a liquid nutrient solution known as "Soap", though given what's actually in the stuff (don't ask, please, just… don't ask), she'll be adapting to a diet of normal, 21st century protein shakes, once she arrives at the Mansion. She has also been genetically programmed for stamina, in order to work the long hours at her dull job. Otherwise is an ordinary person with ordinary strength and skill.

Superhuman Abilities

Nothing out of the ordinary.

Unusual or Magical Possessions

None in particular, unless one counts the "Soul" (something like an identity chip) installed in her left index finger, just under the skin.


Short and slight, even a bit waifish-looking, dark hair cut at ear length (in the movie, she wears a red and blue hair xtension on her right temple) and dark eyes. Typically wears simple sleeveless mini-dresses that end at mid-thigh. Her facial xpression tends to be blank, but her eyes are alive and xpressive. Appears to be in her mid-twenties, but she's likely much younger than that, given that she was literally grown in a vat and her growth was xcelerated.


Most fabricants (something like clones) are decidedly lacking in personality, but Sonmi-451 is markedly different: she has a personality, a quietly inquisitive one, sensitive to her surroundings and the people around her, with a child-like wonder, and a strong sense of right and wrong. She's observant, but never intrusive, as well as being quite pragmatic and realistic. She hasn't had a lot of xperience in the world beyond the galleria where she served in a Papa Song dinery (think a cross between a MacDonald's and the most outrageous anime cafe you can imagine), but she's intrigued by the world, even the most simple things, and she knows that there are certain rights that all beings, fabricant and pureblood, possess: the right to be respected and treated with kindness, the right to live ones life as one chooses, the right to pursue one's bliss, the right to be free from want and fear, and the right to seek the truth.
