Song of the Earth
San Jose, CA
San Jose is a city in the American state of California. It is Sonia’s hometown. By the mid-90s, San Jose acquires the nickname “Silicon Valley.”
Sonia’s father, Sharma, is a programmer and moves to San Jose before Sonia is born. This part of the world overlaps with Matt‘s sphere of influence. After Sonia’s mother is murdered, Matt helps her kill her mother’s rapist and Awakens her as a Chakravanti at the age of 14.
The Technocratic presence (especially Iteration-X) is very powerful here. Though Matt continues to train Sonia, it eventually becomes too dangerous, and he arranges to transfer her to Davenport, Iowa.
