There are those who look at things the way they are and ask why . . . I dream of things that never were and ask why not

Mark Harrington was exploring an Other World when he was captured and implanted with Alien Spores.

When they hatched, his last word spoken was, "SOPHIEEEEEEEE!"

What's the reference here? (I don't get it, but I'm intrigued.)

It's Harrigan, not Harrington (unless I'm missing something) and the reference is to his Personal Story/Story So Far.

Qutoed from his Story so Far (though not all of it):

"Sophie believed him, she believed when he wrote her about the things he saw-- not the men killing other men, but the other things, the monsters. She believed, and that was enough to keep him sane in the trenches, enough to keep him alive.

Then he came home and went to visit Sophie, and he found out that the reason she believed him was that she had one of the creatures inside her, eating her from the inside out. As he watched in helpless horror, she faded away into the air, screaming as the thing finished its meal."

Also, I think FFG included him in one of their novels, and Sophie is referenced there as well. I can never keep the title straight though, but Mark is in one of them.
