Sophie walked to the window, stood behind her brother and put her arm on his shoulder. She was older than he was by twenty-eight seconds—less than half a minute, Josh always reminded her—but with their mother and father away so much, she had assumed the role of a much older sister. Although he was already a good two inches taller than she was, he would always be her baby brother. (19.11)
Sophie took her brother's hand in hers. "From the moment we were born, we've done everything together," she said, her voice low and serious. "And with Mom and Dad away so much, it's really always been just you and me. You always looked after me, I've always looked out for you. I'm not going to allow you to go through this […] process by yourself. We'll do this—just like we've done everything else—together." (24.15)
"When did you decide to kill your sisters?" He [Dee] asked casually... Bastet glared at her niece.
"Is it true? Are Macha and the Badb dead?"
"Yes." The Morrigan glared at Dee. "But I did not kill them. They died willingly, and live inside me still." (32.19-28)
