SoLinh or Lophie is the romantic/friendship pairing of Sophie Foster and Linh Song. This is an LGBTQ+ representative ship that could become canon. As of now, they remain good friends and work very well together. Sophie first heard of Linh when Linh stopped Sophie from burning down Exillium in Book 4: Neverseen. She was known as "The Hydrokinetic" or "The Girl of Many Floods". Sophie first communicates with Linh during an exercise they did in Exillium to practice holding their breath. As Linh struggles to hold her breath, Sophie decides to Inflict positive emotions to keep her calm. After that, Linh and her twin brother, Tam, decide to meet Sophie because they finally trust her. Linh and Sophie become good friends at the end of Neverseen, and Linh joins their friend group along with her brother, Tam.
