Bethann was a colonist on Pern. She was a dolphineer.


Bethann's dolphin friend was Carolina.

Bethann 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.

During the Second Crossing, Carolina gave birth to a calf, Atlanta. Bethann suggested the name to Carolina, who wanted a name that meant something "big" and "wet".

Appearance and Traits

Bethann often bragged that her dolphin knew just as much about old Earth as most humans did.
