Bram Nuada-Re Sophia-Ri (ブラム・ヌァザレ・ソフィアリ, Buramu Nwazare Sofiari?) is the brother of Sola-Ui Nuada-Re Sophia-Ri and the successor of the head of the Department of Spiritual Evocation in the Mage's Association.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Background[edit | edit source]
He is an utterly spoiled son of a rich family who inherited the Magic Crest of the Sophia-Ri family. He is considered to be one of the first-class instructors employed by the Clock Tower.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
He is noted to be young and handsome with red hair, and a single glance shows a strong, high-minded gaze, refined features, and strong sense of duty in his words that place him as a member of the elite.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Role[edit | edit source]
Fate/Apocrypha[edit | edit source]
In the world Fate/Apocrypha, he is confident in his ability to acquire powerful catalysts in a short time for the Red Faction Masters in the Great Holy Grail War. The fact that he gathered that many catalysts in such a short time was largely because the Sophia-Ri had secretly concealed and stored many of them and because he made use of his family’s connections to get the rest. It goes without saying that the collection of so many catalysts at once is limited to “Apocrypha” alone.
Bram, Rocco Belfeban, and Lord El-Melloi II meet shortly after the announcement of the Great Holy Grail War by Darnic Prestone Yggdmillennia to discuss the recent failed operation against Yggdmillennia in Trifas. When the Yggdmillennia announced them possessing the Greater Grail, the Mages Association had sent fifty specialized magi 'hunters', but Lancer of Black annihilated forty-nine of them, with the last survivor adjusting the Greater Grail to summon additional Servants. El-Melloi II suggests bringing in professionals from the outside for the team of Masters, with the Clock Tower providing at least one or two magi as this Holy Grail War is on an utterly different scale. The three men are the people who will be overseeing the selection of Masters for the Great Holy Grail War. With that decided, the three men go their separate ways.
Lord El-Melloi II Case Files[edit | edit source]
Grace note[edit | edit source]
After Lord El-Melloi II gives a lecture to his class, Bram, Rocco, and Inorai Valualeta Atroholm speak to him about how simple the lecture was and how they can't understand the need for a Lord to explain such basics. The conversation then turns to the Fourth Holy Grail War ten years ago and how El-Melloi II rebuilt Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald's class after his death.
Later that day, Bram speaks to Reines El-Melloi Archisorte in the hall after hearing that El-Melloi II has taken a dying cat to his office. He expresses confusion because it's such a basic sacrifice to use for magecraft. Reines informs him that the cat isn't planned to be used as a magecraft sacrifice but instead El-Melloi II is nursing it until it dies so its last hours are peaceful. Bram is startled that a mage would care and thinks El-Melloi II must be making a sport of their craft.
Some time later, Bram and Reines speak at an outdoor café in London about securing El-Melloi II a spot in the upcoming Fifth Holy Grail War. Although the Clock Tower is sending Bazett Fraga McRemitz and Atrum Galliasta as their representation, Bram has the political influence to replace Bazett with El-Melloi II. However, Bram expresses dissatisfaction at the idea of a Lord, even a temporary Lord, bowing down and asking him for a favor like that. Reines leaves after reminding him how Kayneth and Sola-Ui died in the previous war, and tells Bram he'll shrivel up without any curiosity. Lord El-Melloi II takes on the Wills Pelham Codrington case to do Bram a favor in exchange, as it is a problem concerning the Spiritual Evocation department.
Fate/strange Fake[edit | edit source]
During the Snowfield Holy Grail War, Bram and his father Lord Rufleus Nuada-Re Eulyphis are away from the Clock Tower on a special assignment, leaving Rocco Belfeban to act as the temporary Lord of the Faculty of Spiritual Evocation for the time being.

Bram Nuada-Re Sophia-Ri [Person's name]
Sola-Ui’s younger brother, who existence is briefly referenced in “Fate/Zero”. He is an utterly spoiled son of a rich family who inherited the Magic Crest of the Sophia-Ri family. A rough drawing of him should be included somewhere in this section. I believe it’s a drawing that really gives off the image of a guy full of confidence and pride, yet who will be inevitably dragged into a tragedy at some point, but what do you think?
His abilities are first rate, but he has somewhat of a trauma due to how his (future) brother-in-law went out full of confidence and yet came back in a wretched state in the past. In this Great Holy Grail War, he had the duty of collecting the catalysts for summoning Heroic Spirits. The fact that he gathered that many catalysts in such a short time was largely because the Sophia-Ri had secretly concealed and stored many of them and because he made use of his family’s connections to get the rest. It goes without saying that the collection of so many catalysts at once is limited to “Apocrypha” alone.

- Makoto Sanada Twitter 11:17 AM · Aug 3, 2019 - Will's nimble movements are befitting of a first class lecturer using "reinforcement. An elite Bram would have no problem with helping out. Also, he uses a kind of magecraft that transforms text into a knife, manifesting the concept of cutting.
