Jacob "Jake" Chernoff was a colonist on Pern. He worked in communications.


Soon after arriving on Pern, Jake was put in charge of a group of children cataloging life forms on the planet. Sorka Hanrahan was part of the group. Unlike Chung, the other member, Jake listened to Sorka's contributions.

Jake worked with Zi Ongola on communications in Landing. After the first Threadfall, he helped try to contact the families that were in the path of Thread.

He stayed on duty with Ongola during Nabhi Nabol's doomed shuttle mission.

After the move north to Fort Hold, Jake received a call from his brother Peter, informing him of the imminent arrival of the dragonriders to fight Thread.

Personality and traits

Jake was a big help to Ongola. He was able to keep official information secret when necessary, and he didn't want to cause a panic.
