Nerat Shield

Begamon is the former Lord Holder of Nerat Hold.


He was one of the sons of Vincet. His brother, Ciparis served as Begamon's steward after Begamon became Lord Holder. Begamon was one of the few Lord Holders to oppose AIVAS and its aim to destroy thread. This led Begamon to become part of the first group of Abominators. He would become embroiled in a plot to kidnap retired Masterharper Robinton to force Pern to destroy the machine. An investigation would show that his hold was meant to provide safe haven for the kidnappers. As a result, Begamon would be forced to stand trial in front of a special Conclave of Lord Holders, where he was found guilty. Begamon was stripped of his title and exiled to the Ring Islands.

Personality and traits

Begamon was one of a group of people who were against AIVAS and the technologies it introduced. At his trial, he refused to speak in his defense, but simply moaned and held his head.
