Keroon Shield

Corman is the Lord Holder of Keroon Hold during the Eighth Interval and Ninth Pass.


He fostered both Larad and Asgenar, who would both become Lord Holders of their own holds in time. Corman was known for his conservative views. He would attend the Asgenar's wedding to Famira, in the company of many fosterlings.

Despite his normally conservative views, he was a supporter for having Grubs spread across the Northern Continent, viewing it as common sense to protect the ground. After the discovery of AIVAS, however, he was among the few Lord Holders who did not approve of the artificial intelligence. While he distrusted AIVAS and its newly introduced technologies, he did nothing to prevent his holders from making use of them. His distrust of AIVAS became known at a conclave held at Tillek Hold, where he bluntly made his opinions on several new technologies known. However, he was forced to back down when he offhandedly disparaged the Weyrs, angering most of the Lord Holders attending, particularly Jaxom.

Corman would eventually grow to distance himself from the other anti-AIVAS Lord Holders after learning of a plot by Abominators to kidnap retired Masterharper Robinton. After the attempted kidnapping took place at the Ruatha Gather, Corman sat among the Lord Holders to determine the punishment of the the two implicated Lord Holders, Sigomal and Begamon. He would vote to strip them of their ranks and have both men exiled. Afterwards, it was noted that of all the AIVAS introduced technologies, he would purchase only paper, as it had been reintroduced prior to AIVAS's discovery.

Corman would die in the years following AIVAS's deactivation, with his son Kashman becoming his successor as Lord Holder of Keroon Hold.

Personality and traits

Corman held very traditional views, and distrusted many newly reintroduced technologies. However, he did not prevent others from doing so. Corman was noted as being cantankerous at times, and freely made his opinions and emotions known.
