Alianne Zulieta was one of the original eighteen dragonriders under the leadership of Sean Connell. She was the rider of gold Chereth.


Alianne impressed her dragon during the hatching of Kitti Ping's first clutch of biogenetically engineered dragon eggs. She died in childbirth during the founding of Ruatha Hold. She had blue or green fire lizards that didn't stay after Mount Garben erupted and the settlers evacuated Landing during the Second Crossing

Alianne died while giving birth to her third child. Her queen was the first queen to go between, just like Marco Galliani's Duluth did.

Weyrwoman Zulaya, rider of gold Meranath at Telgar Weyr, was Fort Weyr bred, and she came from Alianne's bloodline.


Her dragon's name, Chereth, wasn't given until the short story The Ford of Red Hanrahan.
