- ―Cordelia meets Sonia[src]
Sonia (last name not given) was the niece of Major Amor Klyeuvi. She lived in the vicinity of Aime Pass in the Dendarii District of Barrayar, and helped hide Cordelia Vorkosigan and the young emperor, Gregor Vorbarra, during Vordarian's Pretendership.
They spent a week in her home, during which time she asked almost nothing about them. She did, however, pass on interesting tidbits of information to Cordelia as she learned them. Cordelia learned details about life in poverty from her time with Sonia.
