Drake Bonneau was a colonist on Pern. He was a pilot.


Drake was a charterer and one of the shuttle plots from the Yokohama. He was interested in Sallah Telgar but she rejected his advances.

After landing, he and Xi Chi Yuen were scheduled to take the Mariposa to install commsats on Pern's moons. He later piloted a geology expedition further west. He found a great inland lake and campaigned for it to be named Drake's Lake. He married Svenda Olubushtu and they set up stake at Suweto Stake. They had two children.

During Threadfall, Drake was one of the squadron leaders. He gave lessons to the younger pilots that had not flown before coming to Pern. When Landing evacuated to the Northern Continent, Drake flew the shuttle Swallow with children and equipment to Fort Hold. He had a difficult trip because tunnel snakes had infested the Swallow.

When a volunteer was needed for a mission to explore the Red Star's trail, the leadership approached Drake for the mission first. However, he declined, citing the fact that he was a husband and father.


Drake was adored by his students.
