While still at Fort Weyr, J'gerd and J'keran were leaders of the hatchlings from Hinirth's last clutch that were almost old enough to join the fighting wings.
While at Igen Weyr, Fiona forced J'gerd and F'jian to fight in heavily padded suits to settle repeated disagreements regarding the fact that they were both interested in Terin.
After it had been discovered that many of the eggs had been eaten by tunnel snakes before a hatching, J'gerd helped throw the destroyed eggs into the sea, along with as many tunnel snakes as he was able to kill.
Personality and Traits
J'gerd was a wiry-haired lad who smiled a lot but was thoughtful. He was steady, strong, but just not tall.
On one occasion, J'keran commented, "You have to forgive J'gerd. His lips often move a full minute before his brain."
While the weyrlings were being returned in Time from Igen Weyr to Fort Weyr, it occurred to Fiona that J'gerd's behavior toward her had changed the most. At first he had been fearful of her, but then he had sought her out, at first to apologize and later to confide. It had been his heartfelt loneliness—a loneliness with which Fiona found herself keenly sympathetic—that had decided Fiona to encourage the riders to spend more time mingling with the traders and the wherholders.
