“I will do anything in my power to help my world.”

—Sophie Foster, in Neverseen

The Black Swan

The Black Swan are a group of elves, dwarves, and gnomes. They are the ones who created Sophie.

Pre-Keeper Edit

The Black Swan are the ones who created Sophie as Project Moonlark. Also, Prentice, their keeper, had his mind broken and was sent to Exile. Mr. Forkle became Sophie's neighbor and called the hospital when she hit her head.

Keeper of the Lost Cities Edit

One of the leaders of the group, Mr. Forkle, was Sophie's neighbor in the Forbidden Cities. When the Neverseen kidnapped Sophie and Dex, the Black Swan came to their rescue. It was also the Black Swan that set up the necessary elements for Sophie to catch the everblaze burning in the Forbidden Cities, using Gildie, the flareadon, and Prattles pins.

Exile Edit

The Black Swan started leaving clues for Sophie. She and Keefe went to the Black Swan so Sophie's abilities could be fixed to heal Alden Vacker from a broken mind. When the Neverseen found the cave and tried to get Silveny, the Black Swan fought them off, allowing Sophie, Keefe and Silveny to escape.

Everblaze Edit

Mr. Forkle helped Fitz get Sophie's trust so she would allow him into her mind. At the end of the book, Sophie, Fitz, Biana, Keefe and Dex decide to go find the Black Swan to join them and run from the council.
