There is no time crunch on this so give it some thought. As in Deadlands, there are critters in the Dresden Universe that utilize Fear as ... as the mind-killer (so to speak). So this leads to a very important question: What is your characters greatest/worst fear? If an entity utilized fear against your PC by manifesting something, what would it be?
The first one being that Sofia would ultimately find out that something terrible has happened to her brother. She knows Solomon says that he is somewhere safe for his own good, but the fact that he doesn't let her see him or tell her where he is makes her fear the worst.
Second one would be the fear that Sofia would inadvertently screw up again and that would mean her and Solomon's death sentence at the hands of their own council. The first one had been a complete accident, and yet, if it weren't for Solomon intervening, she would have lost her life. The world of magic is still relatively new to her, so even though she tries her hardest to understand the laws, what's to say that she would blunder into something that would seal her fate.
In a word: powerlessness. I had mentioned the "One" concept, which would still fit. But at this point, I think a more playable version might be that he's a "ghost" (I'm recalling an episode or two of Supernatural where one/both is in the spirit world, and can affect nothing, speak to nobody, etc.), and is forced to watch people he cares about go "over the cliff," being unable to help or stop it.
