Spoiler warning!

The Foster family is the human family that raised and took care of Sophie. They believed Sophie was their biological daughter and did not know that she was an Elf or a Telepath. They no longer remember Sophie however, because they had their memories wiped on Sophie's request. Sophie wanted them to forget her so they wouldn't have to live with the pain of believing their daughter died. The Elves had planned on faking Sophie's death so that she could come to live with them secretly but Sophie requested to Alden that they wipe their memories. After that, Sophie watches her family with her illegal Spyball, given to her by the Black Swan.
