Soren was a male Barn owl (Tyto alba), who is the main character and protagonist in the book series Guardians of Ga'Hoole.  Although he doesn't have a major role in Wolves of the Beyond, and hardly a physical role at all, he is mentioned in Shadow Wolf, as the king of Ga'Hoole by Edme during the gaddergnaw and in Spirit Wolf, he was credited for training a collier owl named Conny. He is also seen by Gwynneth as a scroom.

Also worth noting, Soren was the best collier at the Ga'Hoole Tree. He also had starsight, a rare gift where certain owls can see the future in their dreams.
