|Spouse||Pierre de Courci|
Emily originated from Altair and had been the governor of both the planet First Centauri and Tau Ceti.
Emily was co-leader of the colonists during the fifteen year journey to Pern and later during the initial crisis caused by Threadfall.
After her death, Southern Hold, which she and Pierre had established before her death (according to Dragonlover's Guide to Pern), was named Southern Boll Hold by Pierre and the other stakeholders. As Emily said to Wind Blossom in Dragonsblood, "I was governor of Tau Ceti. Here, I am just Emily, Holder of Boll."
