Keefe and Sophie, most commonly known as Foster-Keefe, is the romatic pairing of Keefe Sencen and Sophie Foster. Throughout the series Keefe has shown affection to Sophie, teasing her but trying to be serious when she needs it. (Note by Connie-Lionheart3: In Lodestar, he grows up a bit, and Sophie and Keefe act sweeter to each other, like when he holds her after Mr. Forkle dies in the collapse of Lumenaria). He is always telling Sophie to relax and not be so stressed out. Keefe also appears to show some jealousy when Sophie is flustered over Fitz.

Keefe is always the first one to volunteer for anything Sophie plans and was the first one Sophie let into her plans and secrets. Keefe dubbed their team 'Team Foster-Keefe' in Keeper of the Lost Cities Exile.
