The flag of the California Republic.

California, besides being a US State, has multiple ties to Daniel Larson, including (but not limited to) its status as his place of birth.

The original California arc was a period of time where Daniel Larson was in California. Daniel had taken a midnight train to California on August 20th, 2021 under the assumption his father would meet with him. This would not be Daniel's last time in California, however, as a new arc in the state would begin in December 2022.

First California Saga

Daniel got off the train at the Emeryville Amtrak Station on Horton Street and was spotted by fans that night.[1]

On August 21, 2021, Daniel uploaded a video on a new TikTok account, Daniellarsoninsocal. In this video (which is one of the only ones still available from this account) he claims that he had been dropped by his disability services, and was homeless in Los Angeles. However, the community quickly realized that this was not the case.[2] In this video, Daniel is seen walking in front of the Hyatt House in Emeryville (suburb of Oakland), where it can be presumed that he was staying. Fans claimed to have seen Daniel in the area having a meltdown in the streets.[3]

It is unknown how exactly Daniel managed to get there, or if he was aware that the Oakland area was not, in fact, part of LA, but instead a city on the other side of the state, in the San Francisco Bay Area. However, it was speculated by some that his management team manipulated him into traveling there for some reason, which actually evoked negative reactions from r/DanielLarson members at the time.[4][5] Daniel also claimed that he had a court case the next day, and that he needed donations (possibly to get back to Denver, as he mentioned "if I'm not back, there will be a warrant out for my arrest."[6]). Daniel also posted various other videos, presumably of him walking around the area[7]. The account ended up being banned within the same day.[8][9] The first California arc ended with Daniel's manager, Samantha, convincing his care providers to transport him back to Denver. A fan spotted him looking nervous in the Oakland airport on August 24, 2021.[10]
