Keeper of The Lost Cities

Updated: Jul 3

By Aila McPhail


This post is about some of the main characters from one of my new favorite book series "Keeper Of The Lost Cities". The characters in this post all have special abilities. For example, an empath is a person with a special ability that is able to feel other people's emotions (that is my favorite special ability). It is my favorite special ability, because I love the idea of being able to empathize with others and help them in tough situations.


What's really cool about these special abilities is that you don't actually need to possess magic in order to do them. Take the empath as an example. When people talk you can sense how feel. If they are uncomfortable with what you were saying, then you can apologize and avoid the topic in the future. Just being very emotional intelligent is very helpful in many different situations, which is why the empath's special ability appealed to me so much.


Take a look at these characters and share which one you like the best. Why do like that ability? What can you do in real life to cultivate those same abilities?


Hope you enjoy it!



Dex Dizznee

Dex is a technopath. His ability means that he is very good at making things that involve technology. Dex’s personality is very compelled to do things. He is also Sophie's best friend! Dex fights a lot with Fitz and is always trying to compete with him. But this is because he cares so much about Sophie. The Dex family is known for being a bad match because his mom has special abilities while his dad does not!




Fitz Vacker


Fitz is a telepathy just like Sophie! What that means is that he can read minds, and is also known as hearing people's thoughts. Fitz has a stuffed dragon named Mr. snuggles! Fitz is a very good leader and a very compassionate friend! He is also very talented and he was born into a family of the nobility, but he was ready to give it up to fight for a big cause. Fitz is a very good friend!





Biana Vacker


Biana is a vanisher, which means that she can turn invisible. She is very caring for Sophie and is a passionate friend. But Biana is kind of jealous of Sophie because Keefe gives all the attention to her. Biana always is tagging along and always needs to be part of the action. She cannot stand not knowing about Sophie's secrets, but keeps them when she knows. Biana is also Fitz’s sister, and at first did not like Sophie because she thought Sophie only liked her brother.



Sophie Foster


Sophie has many special abilities. She is a telepathy just like Fitz, and she has a stuffed animal. however, she also has the ability to block others from reading her mind. She can also heal a broken mind. She has photographic memories. She is Polyglot, which means that she can speak any language that she is immersed in. She can teleport, which means that she can go anywhere she wants. Perhaps one of her most powerful abilities is that she can inflict positive emotions and negative emotions and pain. She is created by genetic design. That’s why she has so many special abilities, while other main characters only have one!



Keefe Sencen


Keefe is an empath, which means that he can feel others’ emotions. He can sense stress, fear, deceit, and any other emotions. Keefe is extremely humorous and he cracks up jokes in any situation especially in uncomfortable situations! Keefe is a good friend. Keefe is very independent minded, because he does not let his parents define who he is, as you will find out that his dad is extremely selfish and his mom was part of an evil organization that is willing to kill his friends and hurt him. But although they were his family, he knew who cared about him, and protected them, even if it meant breaking off from his family.



Tam ...


Tams special ability is called a shade. Shades can manipulate shadows in certain ways. Tam is very protective of his twin sister Linh. He is a good friend but will not trust people endless he takes a reading of their shadow vaper. Tam is a very important asset to the Black Swan, a secret organization to help right the wrongs of Elvin society, because he can use shadow vapor to get to most of the enemy hideouts. In the Elvin world it is considered unfortunate to have twins or triplets. Tam Linhs parents have Tried to convince Tam Linh and other people that they are actually not twins. Because they don't want the shame of twins. That is why he and his sister don't get along with their parents.



Linh ...


Linh is a hydrokinetic. That means she can control water. If Lynn is surrounded by water then it is very hard to control. This is because her power is very impactful and capable of being very destructive causing her to flood Atlantis (A underwater elvin city.) Linh is a very cheerful person and she is very friendly and cares a lot about her friends. She is also great at thinking in the moment. Like when all of her friends were getting washed down a lake full of sharp rocks, she was able to protect them even though things were all moving in a blur. Just like her brother she does not get along with her parents.



Marella Redek


Marella is a pyrokinetic which means that she is immune to fire (except everblaze, a super hot fire that only pirokentiks can make that can only be put out with a special powder) and can create fire. She wishes that she can be an empath though, because her mother struggles with emotional problems and Marella wants to help her mom. Marella was Sophie’s really good friend but then felt left out after Sophie went on adventures without her. But she is still a really caring and sweet person.



Grady Ruewen


Grady Ruewen is Sophie’s adoptive father. He used to have a daughter named Jolie, but she died after her fiance accidentally killed her with his pyrokinetic powers. Grady, and his wife Edaline, were really sad and were happy to take Sophie in after her human family had to get their memory of her erased. He is really caring and protective of Sophie and was happy to call her his daughter with no hesitation. And was also happy to help her with everything she had to go through. Overall, Grady is super supportive and Sophie probably wouldn’t have been able to get through a lot of things without him.



Edaline Ruewen


Edaline Ruewen is Sophie’s adoptive mother. Like Grady, she was happy to take Sophie in after losing her other daughter. She is always supportive of Sophie and is always there by her side when Sophie is going through struggles. Edaline is a conjurer which means she can make things appear from one place to another. Edaline is really helpful conjuring Sophie her lunch and important things for her while Sophie needs alone time, or space to think. Edaline is a great mom.



Della Vacker 


Della is Fitz and Bianas mom. And she is a sweet kind and loving person. Della is very supportive whenever Sophie and her friends are doing something. She also always let's Sophie and other people in her house. Like when Mr. Forkle needed to use Aldens office twice. She is also very trustworthy and tries to help Sophie and her friends in whatever way she can. Della is good friends with Edaline (Sophie's adopted parent). And is also willing to take care of Sophie as well, and help her through things.



Alden Vacker


Della is Fitz and Bianas mom. And she is a sweet kind and loving person. Della is very supportive whenever Sophie and her friends are doing something. She also always let's Sophie and other people in her house. Like when Mr. Forkle needed to use Aldens office twice. She is also very trustworthy and tries to help Sophie and her friends in whatever way she can. Della is good friends with Edaline (Sophie's adopted parent). And is also willing to take care of Sophie as well, and help her through things.


Jensi Babbelos


Jensi was one of the first people to be friends and show her around  Foxfire.  He was never someone to judge people based on first impressions, and took the time to get to know Sophie before claiming any thoughts about her. He was always very supportive of Sophie always applauding her for everything cool she did and was never jealous of it. He is also a very funny person. And is always positive about things, even when there doesn’t seem to be much hope, Jensi can give everyone a new perspective.
