This is the pairing of Botros and Romhilda (Bo and Ro). They are married, but Ro is against it. They each think they are better than the other at fighting. This first came up in Flashback, when Botros (Bo) became one of Sophie's bodyguards. Keefe wrote a poem called the Ballad of Bo and Ro, which is unknown.Sophie and Fitz are called as a team by Keefe. They are extremely close friends and Sophie has had a crush on Fitz through the whole series. Fitz is the first elf Sophie had met, besides Mr. Forkle, and he's the one who showed her where she really belonged. He is also the person who Sophie thought to reach out to telepathically when she was kidnapped, and she was capable of reaching out to him even with a phenomenal distance.
Fitz has a very close relationship with Sophie because they are cognates-in-training. They go through multiple trust exercises, including sharing their secrets to each other, then, later on, they become cognates. Along with Mr. Forkle, he is the only one capable of going past her mental barriers, and they trust each other very deeply. They get closer in Everblaze, and Fitz seemingly starts to show feelings for her in Neverseen, where Sophie comforts him upon learning Alvar's betrayal. He is also very excited that they are to train as cognates. Fitz really started showing his possible feelings for Sophie in Lodestar when he holds hands with her often, comforts her and is very protective of her. Sophie always has fluttery feelings or blushes around him. Under the Panakes tree, in Lodestar, there is a reason to believe that Fitz tried to kiss Sophie when he told her to, "Skip the talking" although they are interrupted by Keefe. In Nightfall, he prepares a lot of sweet treats and presents for her, and Sophie comforts him.
When they go see Alvar In Flashback, Fitz later confesses his crush to Sophie and she confesses her crush to Fitz. Fitz then almost kisses her, but they are interrupted again, this time by Silveny. Later in the book, it is confirmed that they are not dating on Sophie's part, because Sophie doesn't feel she is ready.
They start dating in Legacy and become officially boyfriend and girlfriend.
In Legacy, Fitz and Sophie get into an argument and start avoiding each other.At the end of the book they reconcile, but decide to stay just friends.
through the whole series and have a close relationship. Dex has always made cool contraptions for Sophie to keep her safe including the Sucker Punch (gives a burst of air so then your arm goes at a faster speed punching harder) and a panic switch (a ring with a switch that will alert Dex to come help). Dex was the "lucky" person and was going to see Sophie in the caves when the Neverseen came and kidnapped both of them doing horrible things like drugging and burning them. Dex always blushes with Sophie and takes any moments he can to be with her. He is always jealous of Fitz and how he and Sophie always are with each other. In Nightfall it's obvious Dex likes Sophie, but when he gets her some "Crush cuffs" as a cover-up to hide her Enhancing ability, Sophie kisses him to prove that they aren't really meant for each other. They both feel that there was no spark to the kiss, and they agree to be just friends. Dex then asks for some time to heal from her rejection, which she gives him. They are adoptive cousins, not by blood but by Sophie's adoption by the Ruewens. This might cause them to be a bad match if they ever decide to marry.
Tiana is formed by Tam Song and Biana Vacker. In the book Lodestar, Tam "stole a quick glance" at Biana, which was possibly the start of his crush on her. It is noted that he admires her powers and bravery several times during the books. In Lodestar, Linh mentions that he likes brunettes, and Biana is the only brunette in their group. Also in Lodestar, Tam is mentioned several times in relation to Biana, including when Keefe makes clear that he is the president of the Foster Fan Club and Tam says he has no problem with that and looks at Biana, blushing. In Legacy, when everyone learns that Tam is in the throne room at the dwarves city, Biana cries,"Tam!" and rushes in first.
These are all names that mean shipping Keefe and Biana. In the first book, Biana is jealous when Keefe calls Sophie for his base quest team. In Everblaze, when Lady Gisela points a melder to Biana's head, Biana acts brave, though Lady Gisela claims it was "mock-bravery" to impress Keefe. In Neverseen, Keefe reveals he kissed Biana in a game of Truth or Dare. Biana dared Keefe to kiss her (on the cheek), but at the last second, she turned her head. Keefe says that it was a good thing that he had his eyes open, otherwise he would've missed and kissed her full on the lips. In the end, Keefe ended up kissing only the corner of Biana's mouth. Biana is also clutching Keefe's arm on the cover of Neverseen. In Nightfall, Keefe says that he flirts with everyone except Biana, just to make it obvious. In Nightfall,
Winh or Lylie is the ship between Linh Song and Wylie Endal. After Wylie was taken and tortured by the Neverseen, Linh was always there to comfort him. He also becomes more alert during his treatment when Linh works with water around him. In Nightfall, when Wylie agreed to help distract Neverseen, he glanced at Linh first. In Flashback, Sophie and Keefe named the male Alicorn Wynn, and it is possible that that is foreshadowing for Winh, as they are pronounced the same. Some popular references to this are phrases like "Lylie for the Winh" which is pronounced "Lie-lee for the win". There is also a scene in Flashback where Bo is glaring at Linh, then Wylie glares at Bo. Linh always spends lots of time with Wylie. In Legacy, Wylie is always thinking about Linh, and is the only one on Team Valiant to think about her when things involve her brother. He says things like,"I should be the one to tell Linh about this."
Sizel or Grandor is the ship with Sandor and Grizel. Grizel has always been romantically inclined towards Sandor, and in Lodestar, Sandor was there to comfort Grizel. Grizel constantly flirts with Sandor no matter if it could cost her, her
charge. In Lodestar and Nightfall, Sandor grows closer to Grizel, and they always have teasing moments. Both confessed and shared a romantic moment in Nightfall. They start dating, and in Flashback, Grizel says "I love you" to Sandor. In Legacy, Sophie describes them as a “perfect” couple.
Greyfell and Silveny are married by alicorn standards. They didn't like each other at first, because the Neverseen put a tracker in Silveny's tail and it scared Greyfell, but their relationship got better. In Flashback, they had two twin alicorns named Luna and Wynn.
Marella obviously liked Tam the first time that she saw him. When Exillium came to the Lost Cities, she "shot him her flirtiest smile," and flips her hair. In Nightfall, when it is revealed that Marella is a Pyrokinetic, Marella seems to grow a little bit closer to Tam when they enter Lady Gisela's Nightfall, finding the Gorgodons dead. She also agrees with him several times in the book Nightfall. It is unknown if Tam has any feelings for Marella, except that "his [Tam's] eyebrows shot up, and he glanced back," and that he blushed when Biana told him that Marella was checking him out.
Jarella or Marsi is the romantic pairing of Jensi Babblos and Marella Redek. Jensi always admired Marella but she called his group “the drooly boys”. Sometimes Marella would sit with "the drooly boys" when Sophie leaves her to do all her "missions". Note that Marella used to sit by herself before Sophie. Marella and Jensi were also left out of Sophie’s group multiple times,
Linx is the romantic/ friendship pairing between Dexter Dizznee and Linh Song. There is a possibility that Dex might've moved on to liking Linh after Sophie rejected him. Dex often ‘wows’ along with Fitz whenever Linh uses her ability.
Sophie and Tam, or Tophie, is the romantic/friendship pairing of Sophie Foster and Tam Song. They are friends, but neither shows much romantic interest in the other. Sophie is usually feeling that way toward Fitz Vacker or Keefe Sencen. Tam also hints that he does not like Sophie in this way and that he likes Biana. However, there are several instances that suggest that Tam was interested in Sophie or her personality, particularly in Lodestar, despite Linh claiming he "likes brunettes". Sophie is also usually defensive of Tam to the others. Also, in Flashback, Tam goes with Sophie when they split up in the celestial festival saying that he should protect her.
