Sophie-Anne Leclerq is a fictional character from The Southern Vampire Mysteries / Sookie Stackhouse Series by author Charlaine Harris. She is the vampire queen of Louisiana and she is first introduced in the sixth novel, Definitely Dead, but also appears in Harris' short story "One Word Answer."

In the book series, Sophie-Anne is portrayed as a 1,100 year old vampire who died in her early teens ("She'd died as a human when she'd been maybe fifteen or sixteen." - All Together Dead) She is originally from northern France (Lotharingia) and was the daughter of the wealthiest man in town. Her name then was Judith. When she was about ten or twelve, a peddler came to her village carrying what Sophie now believes to be a form of influenza. Within two weeks of his visit the town was wiped out except for her and an older boy named Clovis. Though she's forgotten why, the boy did not like her. He raped Sophie and took her to the next town, where he offered her for money and food. They were camped out in the woods when a very hungry vampire attacked Clovis, most likely because he was bigger, and then decided that Sophie would make a good companion. His name was Alain, and they traveled together for around three years. Sophie mentions that he once was a priest, and enjoyed scaring them in their beds. Alain kept promising Sophie that he would bring her over - she wanted the strength - but he would do the same thing Clovis had, selling her for money. One night they came to a village where the head-man knew what Alain really was - Alain had forgotten that he killed the man's wife while passing through. The villagers bound him with silver and left him in a hut to keep him until the priest returned from a trip. They did not tie Sophie up for they knew that she was human and that Alain had abused her. The head-man's family wanted to take her as a slave. She sneaked into the hut and told Alain that she would free him when he changed her. After some bargaining, he agreed. She dug a hole big enough for her body in the dirt floor. They planned that Alain would drain her and bury her under that pallet that he lay on, smoothing the dirt floor as best he could. On the third night, she would rise, break his chains, and they would flee in the darkness. But the priest returned before the three days were up. By the time Sophie dug herself out, Alain was dead. The hut the villagers stored Alain in was the priest's, and he was the one who told Sophie what had happened. She told him that she was the angel of death and that she was passing him over for being so virtuous. A few years later, she found an orphan with a tale of woe similar to hers. Roaming in the woods and being forced, as Sophie had been, the orphan Andre became Sophie-Anne's personal bodyguard, companion, and, for a time, her lover. She also made Sigebert (See-ya-bairt) and Wybert (Way-bairt) (Saxon warriors) vampires who acted as Sophie-Anne's bodyguards. Her special powers include the ability to communicate with her "children" telepathically. Her character explains that she can keep her children with her, talking to and loving each other physically. This differs from normal "maker"/"child" relationships which start out as companions or lovers but do not last long (in vampire standards). Usually, the child will leave the maker, and must only come again when he/she is called upon by the maker.

In the sixth novel, Definitely Dead, Sookie describes Sophie-Anne as beautiful and pale as milk, with reddish brown hair, large and tilted brown eyes. Sophie-Anne is also portrayed as an elegant woman, around five foot two, always groomed down to the last eyelash. "Makeup, dress, hair, stockings, jewelry-the whole nine yards".

In the book series, Sophie-Anne is the vampire queen of Louisiana. She is New Orleans's most famous and visible vampire and she has been brave, strategic, and busy in her career as a vampire leader. Sophie Anne sends Bill Compton back to his hometown of Bon Temps to find and, if necessary, seduce Sookie Stackhouse because Sookie's telepathic ability might be valuable.
