Ella the Elephant is Sophie's bright blue elephant stuffed animal that she brought with her from the Forbidden Cities. She is one of Sophie's closest companions, and Sophie finds it hard to sleep without Ella in her arms. The only time they were separated was in Lodestar, when Sophie and Edaline went to the Peace Summit. Sophie is somewhat embarrassed to show Ella to her friends (especially Keefe). Later, Elwin gives Fitz, Mr. Snuggles. When Keefe learns about Mr.Snuggles, he teases Fitz relentlessly, until he gets his own stuffed animal, a gulon, Mrs. Stinkbottom.
