Dolphineer.PNG Paradise River Stake Fort Sea Hold

Ben Byrne was a colonist on Pern. He was a dolphineer. His dolphin friend was Amadeus (sometimes called Ammie).


When the Moth, carrying Nabhi Nabol and Bart Lemos, crashed into the sea, Ben sent a team of dolphins to search for the wreckage.

Ben was one of the dolphineers that answered the red alert recall sequence that Jim Tillek rang on the big bell at Monaco Bay. He had to sled in from Paradise River Stake. The red recall was initiated to request assistance with the evacuation of Landing during the volcanic eruptions.
