"Just a little, through the children, the ones with the monsters on their necks. (..) No they wouldn't talk to us about that but what happened to us at the camp, I know they don't want us here, not any of us."
—Sonya about the aliens.[src]

Sonya Rankin is a woman who has been living near the aliens since the invasion, and is being used by the Espheni for Intel.


Allston, MAEdit

Sonya Rankin lived in Allston, MA, in an apartment building with her son Joel, and daughter Amy, and they used to play in the courtyard. She mentions having neighbors, the Gibson's who lived on the fourth floor were expert bridge players and John Hernandez on the eighth floor who loved his football.



Sonya was first taken to a camp by the aliens but was let go. She has been selling out survivors to the aliens for food and tea, she is told that they'll bring the survivors back to Sonya for company, but they never do. She has been waiting for the return of her family which the Espheni promised to bring back, which was the core reason she became a collaborator.

When the arrived back, Karen and an Espheni Overlord came to the apartment with food.
