Emily Boll was the former governor of the planet First Centauri and, along with Admiral Paul Benden, was co-leader of the Pern colonists.   


She originated from Altair, and was the governor of the planet First Centauri. She had also been governor of Tau Ceti. She had two adult children who didn't come with her to Pern. Emily's husband was Pierre de Courci.

Alongside Admiral Paul Benden, Emily was co-leader of the colonists during the fifteen year journey to Pern, and later during the initial crisis caused by Thread.

Emily was badly injured in a shuttle crash at Fort Hold during the Second Crossing (AL 10) but slowly recovered. She died during the Fever Year (AL 16) which claimed over three thousand lives. 

Two years after her death, Southern Boll Hold was named for her by her husband Pierre.
