Fanna was the senior Weyrwoman at Ista Weyr at the end of the Eighth Pass. Her dragon was gold Mirath.


Fanna originally resided in the Eighth Pass. At some point, she Impressed gold Mirath and became senior Weyrwoman of Ista Weyr. She had a close relationship with D'ram, Ista's Weyrleader. Led by Lessa, Fanna traveled to the Ninth Pass with D'ram and the rest of Ista Weyr. She remained the senior Weyrwoman up until the fifteenth year of the Ninth Pass, when she succumbed to an illness; «…a wasting sickness that nothing [seemed] to halt», and that she had been «declining gradually» from. Following her death, D'ram would step down as Weyrleader, lacking the heart to continue on after Fanna's death. Fanna was succeeded as Senior Weyrwoman by Cosira.
