Big Sur is a lightly populated, unincorporated region on California's Central Coast where the Santa Lucia Mountains rise abruptly from the Pacific Ocean. Big Sur is the location of Jasper Schoenfeld's personal residence.
Following her interview with Tendo Choi at the Anchorage Shatterdome, journalist Naomi Sokolov, sought out Jasper Schoenfeld, one of the pioneers of the Jaeger Program. Schoenfeld relocated to Big Sur, California, living in a lavish building near the edge of the cliff overlooking the water.
At his request, Naomi was allowed to conduct an interview with him at his home about the beginning of the Jaeger Program and the first successful battle against a Kaiju with Brawler Yukon, a Mark-1 prototype Jaeger.
