General

Development

  • Sona's name (Hindi: 'gold') references the Latin prefix son- ('related to sound') and the suffix -a ('feminine noun') while it and her abilities also reference the Sonar technique.
    • Her title Maven (Hebrew: 'one who understands') references her musical skill with her Etwahl.
      • Her instrument's name is pronounced the same as étoile (French: 'star')
        • The instrument itself might be referencing a Guzheng while the name itself is an anagram for 'wealth' (referencing the Buvelle fortune and the instrument's qualities)

Lore

  • Sona is mute, yet can talk to others and Summoners/players via telepathy.
  • Sona was born and spent her childhood and adolescence in Ionia before moving to Demacia after Lestara Buvelle adopted her.

Quotes
