“They stretched out their minds, and Fitz's consciousness seemed to merge with Sophie's as they moved almost like a dance, sweeping around barriers and sidestepping defenses. When Sophie's excitement bubbled up, Fitz's steadiness slowed her down, saving her from pushing into a trap. And when Fitz grew too impatient, Sophie was there to calm his mind before he rushed the wrong direction.”

—Narration, in Book 4: Neverseen - Page 500-501

Sophitz/Fitzphie (aka Fitzphie, Keefe and Ro's nickname for them) is the romantic/friendship pairing between Sophie Elizabeth Foster and Fitzroy Avery Vacker. Beginning from the very second they met, Sophie had a crush on him. Her heart usually flutters when she sees him (In Flashback, the narration states that her heart did not flutter as much because she was worried at the moment). These feelings cause her to blush and her heart to flutter when she is around him. The two also hold hands often, usually for Cognate training or moral support. As the books went on, Sophie's heart flutters less as she was around Fitz. However, this does not mean that she did not grow closer to him, only that she's more used to his frequent good looks and "movie star" smiles.

The two of them met under a model of an Albertosaurus, in a museum at the very beginning of the first book. Throughout the series, Sophie and Fitz have a bond that becomes stronger and stronger, helping them grow as both Cognates and great friends. For them to become Cognates, they must have complete trust in each other. One way of increasing trust is sharing secrets with each other, which makes their relationship even more intimate. One of the many reasons people think that Sophie and Fitz fit so well together is because they both know pain, so they comfort each other in troubling times. They trust each other more than anyone and understand each other's minds completely. They are always there for moral support, often crying or laughing together. Throughout the series, more characters learn that Sophie's favorite color is teal, because of Fitz's eyes.

Sophie and Fitz both find each other attractive, as Fitz has called Sophie pretty and complimented her many times and Sophie thinks that he is one of the most handsome elves she's ever seen. They share many romantic moments (usually under the shade of Calla's Panakes tree) and their feelings have grown more special over the past few books.

Not only are they there to cry on each other's shoulders, but they also bring joy to the other's life. In Lodestar, Sophie gives Fitz his favorite dessert for a midterms gift, and he "smiled his first real smile in weeks."

In Exile, Fitz blames Sophie of being 'damaged' and that is the reason why Alden, his father, ends up with a broken mind after going with Sophie to Exile to perform a memory break on Fintan. Fitz and Sophie's friendship crumbles until Sophie fixes Alden's mind shortly after Mr. Forkle gave her a dose of limbium to heal herself. Before Sophie attempts to heal Alden, Fitz apologizes for his rude behavior to Sophie. He told her that Keefe filled him in about what happened the day before, which made him apprehend how his actions and words let Sophie be in the Neverseen's reach. He also explained that his anger was a way of coping with the grief of losing his father. Fitz also said whether Sophie did or did not heal his father, he would stop accusing her of Alden's broken mind. In the end, Sophie still manages to fix Alden's mind.

In Lodestar and Neverseen, it was revealed that Fitz has feelings for Sophie. In the first book, he originally said that he saw Sophie as a little sister. Fitz was the third elf Sophie ever met, and they supported each other through nearly all of the books published. Fitz is also very protective of her and is constantly concerned about her safety. At the end of Lodestar, Fitz was about to kiss her, but Keefe interrupted. In Nightfall, Fitz implied that he wanted her to register for the matchmaking and constantly baked treats for her. He also became very worried about her and came to check on her almost every night. Fitz has already registered for matchmaking, and at the end of Flashback, Sophie attempts to register but is told that she cannot be matched.

In Flashback, Fitz and Sophie is stuck in the healing center together for a few weeks due to a painful Neverseen attack. During the "Fitzphie slumber-party," as Keefe calls it, the close friends become even closer. After Sophie helps Fitz probe Alvar's mind, Fitz takes her to Everglen's reception hall, where he tells her, "I want it to be you." He also tells her that he doesn't want to pressure her on matchmaking, and he wants Sophie to, "just trust me." Sophie and Fitz are about to kiss when a pained Silveny interrupts them. Later in the book, Fitz twirls Sophie around after they implanted Luna and Wynn. They also talk under Calla's panakes tree about trusting each other and how their relationship will work out. Although Sophie and Fitz are not officially dating as of Flashback, they definitely are smitten with one another, and they are waiting a while before they start dating, to the relief of Sophie's overprotective father, Grady.

As of Legacy, they are officially "dating", but by the end, they have broken up, partly due to Fitz's reaction when Sophie reveals she's unmatchable. However, they are still friends, but Sophie thinks she has too much on her plate to actually date someone at the moment.

Roy (the second half of Fitz's first name) means "seeker of wisdom," which many fans say may imply that Fitz is seeking Sophie. "Roy" is also a nickname for someone who lived in a regal fashion or who had earned their title in some contest of skill. Fitz is very popular and well known for his strong telepathy. He is given the nickname "Wonderboy" as an insult, but it seems to be fitting- Sophie may agree.

  • 'Fitz closed the distance between them to take her hand. "We did'
  • '"So that still freaks you out, huh? That might be proof that it still needs to happen." [Fitz's] eyes locked onto hers, refusing to let her look away. And when she swallowed, it was so loud, she was sure the entire world heard it. " Or," he said, " we could skip the talking." And do what?" she asked, hating her voice for cracking. " Any ideas?" He was so close now, she could feel his breath warming her cheeks"' Shannon Messenger, Keeper of the Lost Cities: Lodestar (p. 666)
  • ' ... his most charming smile and adds, "Red is definitely your color."' - (Fitz to Sophie) Shannon Messenger, Keeper of the Lost Cities: Lodestar
  • “Sophie’s stomach wrenched as she sat beside him. “If you want to stop hanging out with me—” “I told you, I’m in. In fact, there’s something I have to tell you—” Everblaze
  • “I don’t mind having you know what I’m thinking, Sophie. I trust you. Her cheeks turned warm. I trust you, too.” Shannon Messenger, Keeper of the Lost Cities: Everblaze
  • "She liked them [the cognate rings], a little too much actually." Lodestar
  • "She closes her eyes picturing Fitz's handsome face as she transmitted" Lodestar
  • "The smile he flashed belonged on a movie screen, and Sophie's heart did a weird fluttery thing." Shannon Messenger, Keeper of the Lost Cities
  • "He was probably fifteen and by far the cutest boy she had ever seen." Keeper of the Lost Cities
  • "Time seemed to stop. She stared into his eyes..." Keeper of the Lost Cities
  • "Could someone that good looking be crazy?" Keeper of the Lost Cities
  • "Her heart did that stupid fluttery thing again and her skin tingled everywhere he touched." Keeper of the Lost Cities
  • "... clinging to the one memory that could shine a tiny spot of light in this thick inky haze. A pair of beautiful eyes. Fitz's eyes." Keeper of the Lost Cities
  • "His mind went quiet, and Sophie figured he'd dozed off with the others. But right as her mind started to drift, he added, I'll always be here when you need me." Lodestar (pg. 269)
  • "But he was also the boy who'd shown up on her class field trip and shown her where she really belonged. The one who'd let her cry on his shoulder when she had to leave her family, and who'd gone out searching for her in the middle of nowhere, just because he'd heard her voice in his head."
  • "I'll always remember that you found me and brought me to the Lost Cities and showed me where I really belong. And that you came when I called for help and saved me from fading away. And that you left everything behind to go with me when I joined the Black Swan. Need me to keep going? Because I can."
  • "She studied the relaxed lines of his features. The soft flutter of his long, dark eyelashes. The adorable way his arms cradled Mr. Snuggles against his bandaged chest. I don't know what to do. She hadn't meant to transmit the words, but it felt... good to say them. And it wasn't like he could hear her. He hadn't flinched. His breathing hadn't changed rhythm. So she told him, I really wish you were awake. He let out a snuffly snore, which gave her the courage to ask, What if I just want you to wake up because I'm tired of fighting the echoes all by myself? That wasn't the right question, though. What if I want you to wake up because I miss you?"
  • "I heard you, you know."

"Heard what?"

"When I was still out of it, I heard your voice in my head--I think it's why I woke up."

Her face burst into flames. "Sorry, I-"

"Don't be." he interrupted. "I'm glad I'm awake"

"So am I," she admitted. "But...you have to be super careful, okay?"

"I will if you will," he made her promise.

He waited for her to meet his eyes, and when she did, he gave her the sweetest smile she'd ever seen.

"By the way," he murmured, pressing Mr. Snuggles against his heart. "I missed you too."

  • After a moment under the panakes tree, Edaline says, "...there's nothing embarrassing about the way he was looking at you, Sophie. That boy is smitten."
  • “Sophie had just enough strength left to wrap her mind around the gleaming shards and transmit a call for Fitz’s help. He sent a tidal wave of heat, launching everything up, up, up—through softness and sludginess and pain and relief until she was back in her body, shivering in a pair of warm arms that held her close and careful and wouldn’t let her fall. “Shhhh,” Fitz whispered. “You’re back. You’re safe.”
  • "Whatever happens next, I'm here with you. You know that right?” Fitz whispered. "I do." The best part was she actually believed him.
  • "I want it to be you." -Fitz, Flashback
  • "She tried to convince me to get you crush cuffs for a finals gift when you finished Level Three, but I didn't want to pressure you like that." He stepped closer, reaching for her hands and sounding so adorably shy as he told her, "But... if you want some, I'd go get them in a heartbeat." -Fitz Vacker, Flashback
  • "No pressure. No time limit. You set the pace and I'll just...follow your lead. But I'll always be right here whenever you're ready–– well, not right here, because that'd get a bit creepy. But... you know what I mean, right?"
  • "Friends was way better than little sister." - Narration (Sophie's thoughts) about Fitz, Keeper of the Lost Cities
  • “[Fitz would] stop by every afternoon to test new trust exercises, but nothing seemed to work—even when he had her stand on a chair and fall backward into his arms. He did catch her, without even bruising her. But all it earned was some serious teasing from Keefe, who’d showed up just in time to find Fitz cradling her.
  • “I’m so tired of trying to hide the fact that the only name I want to see on my lists is . . . yours.” ― Fitzroy Avery Vacker to Sophie Elizabeth Foster, Book 7: Flashback
  • "I'm pretty sure our whole group has, between all the blushing and the cute little gifts and the 'look at us, aren't we the cutest cognates ever?' and the 'let's stare into each other's eyes and do some trust exercises,' and the 'teal is my favorite color in the whole world and no one realizes why.' "

- Keefe Page 676, Flashback
