Jim Tillek was a colonist on Pern during the First Pass.


Jim was Captain of the Bahrain, Captain of the Southern Cross and Harbor Master of Monaco Bay Stake. He learned some Dolphin and helped Ezra Keroon with tracking the Red Star orbit.

He rang the red-alert recall sequence on the Big Bell at Monaco Bay, calling all dolphins within sound of the bell. He told the dolphins that Landing must be evacuated because Mount Garben was going to erupt.

He and Ezra Keroon worked together to organize the sea part of the Second Crossing evacuation plan that Jim had been given by Governor Emily Boll.

Appearances and Personality

Jim was middle-aged, with gray hair. Even though he was considered to be a 'misfit', he was hard working and understanding and loved the seas and dolphins. As Captain, he had used his allotment to bring teak wood to Pern for his ship, the Southern Cross. When the Southern Cross experienced problems during the Second Crossing, Jim saw the fire lizards protecting the ship.
