—Narration, in Book 4: Neverseen - Page 500-501
Sophitz/Fitzphie is the romantic/friendship pairing between Sophie Elizabeth Foster and Fitzroy Avery Vacker. From holding hands to crying on each others' shoulders, the two are very close. Beginning from when they first met in a museum in San Diego in the first book, Sophie has had a crush on him. These feelings often cause her to blush and her heart to flutter when she is around him. The two also hold hands often, for Cognate training moral support, and romance. Throughout the series, Sophie and Fitz have had a unique bond that becomes stronger and stronger, allowing them to become Cognates, as they trust one another. They often share their secrets with one another, building their bond. They comfort each other in troubling times and understand one another's minds. Both are always concerned for the other’s well being, sometimes above their own and often provide one another with support. Sophie and Fitz both find each other attractive, often complimenting one another or sharing banter. They share many romantic moments, often giving gifts for one another. In Lodestar, Sophie bakes Fitz his favorite dessert, ripplefluffs, he smiles “his first real smile in weeks.” They have had some rocky areas in their relationship, a notable example being in Exile when Fitz blames Sophie for his father’s mind being broken, but Fitz later apologizes when he realizes that it was only his grief making him illogical. In Flashback, Fitz and Sophie reveal their feelings for one another when Fitz takes her to Everglen's reception hall and he tells her that her name is the only name he’s ever wanted to see on his match list. They are about to kiss, but are interrupted by Silveny when she transmits to Sophie that she is having a baby. Sophie later registers for the match, wanting to be on Fitz’s list, but she is told that she is unmatchable. Fitz is temporarily Sophie's boyfriend when they begin dating in Legacy, although they eventually break up, as Sophie begins to avoid Fitz and shares secrets with her other friends instead of Fitz, such as Keefe. They still have very strong feelings for each other, but both decide they aren't ready to be in a romantic relationship yet.

He was so close now, she could feel his breath warming her cheeks"' Shannon Messenger, Keeper of the Lost Cities: Lodestar (p. 666)

What if I want you to wake up because I miss you?"
- "...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
- “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
- “Sophie fought off her smile as Fitz kicked the sand, stirring up a coppery cloud. He was so determined to be angry that it was honestly kind of adorable.”
― Shannon Messenger, Flashback
- “Sophie turned to him, so relieved to see his beautiful eyes staring at her that she didn’t care he’d been eavesdropping.”
― Shannon Messenger, Flashback
- “It made her wish her Polyglot ability worked for translating Cute Boy so she could figure out if that was suppose to be a compliment.”
― Shannon Messenger, Flashback
- “What I was still out of it, I heard your voice in my head- I think it’s why I woke up.”
Her face tried its best to 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.” ― Shannon Messenger, Flashback
- “Just more proof that Fitzphie’s the best,” Fitz told him, with a wink that shouldn’t have made Sophie’s heart flutter. But hearts could be foolish things.” ― Shannon Messenger, Flashback
- Fitz was the first person to introduce Sophie to her true identity as an elf.
- Fitz had been looking for Sophie since he was six years old, for over 9 years.
- Fitz is one of the two people whom Sophie trusts enough to let into her mind (the other one being the elf that created her, Mr. Forkle.)
- Fitz's real name (Fitzroy) can be split into two parts, Fitz and Roy. A meaning of Fitz is, "Son of the king" and the meaning of Roy is, "king/seeker of wisdom." Sophie's name means "wisdom," which could mean that Fitz is seeking Sophie.
- Fitz says that the words he uses to enter Sophie's mind are "It's me."
