Choralmere is the Song family's residence. It is between a pristine cove and the edge of a forest in the middle of the Pacific ocean. As noted by Tam, "a beachfront house isn't exactly an ideal location for a newly fledged Hydrokinetic."
Quan and Mai Song's stunning beachfront estate is tucked between a pristine cove and the edge of a rainforest. Choralmere's massive, elegant house has a series of courtyards crowned with golden roofs and framed by amber and garnet walls. Golden lanterns light the residence, and hundreds of wind chimes create a peaceful ambiance - much like the compositions that Mai Song is famous for creating (most of which are composed in her studio at the property). Their children (Tam and Linh) left Choralmere after Linh was banished - and Tam has long contended that Linh would've been spared such harsh punishment had Quan and Mai been willing to move her farther from water. As a result, even though Tam and Linh have returned to the Lost Cities, they chose not to live with their parents - though Linh temporarily agreed to stay with them (at Tam's request while Tam was trapped with the Neverseen.
Turquoise water laps at the silver shore and a stone path lined with glowing golden orbs leads to the entrance. The corners of its crystal, garnet, and amber outer wall are crowned with tiers of golden roofs. Towers built of sparkly bricks jut from the courtyard, adorned with gilded moldings and balconies. Golden lanterns are tied around the structure with treetops peeking through the center. Wind chimes, waves, and rustling leaves create a symphony of music. The floor is golden with gilded fountains inside and even a mirror-lined hall. The inner courtyard is filled with flowering trees, lacy plants, and several reflecting pools.
Thin twinkling lights that stretched across the enormous, hexagonal room. Each angled wall was dedicated to a different medium - watercolor, sculpture, ink, charcoal, colored pencils, and something involved tiny glass pieces. Floor-to-ceiling windows divided each "station," and twinkling moonlight streamed through square skylights.
“...[It was] like they were surrounded by an ever-changing symphony... It was breathtaking and peaceful...”
About the Name
The name "Choralmere" may be a reference to Mai Song — "Choral" is a musical term referring to voice/singing, and "mère" in French means "mother." Hence, the name translates to "musical mother," going along with Linh and Tam's mother being a famous musician.
