BlankHold Fort Shield

Joel Lilienkamp was one of the original settlers of Pern and served as the Expedition's Supply Officer.


A short, chunky man with an engaging monkey face, Joel was known as much for his quick wit as for his ebullient character. He had an eidetic memory which allowed him to keep mental track of all items in the colony's stores. When the colony was threatened by volcanic activity, Joel quickly relocated many items to what he hoped would be temporary storage in the Catherine Caves.

After Paul Benden's death, he managed Fort Hold. He thought people were renewable supplies.

It is thought that Joel was an ancestor of the Lilcamps traders of the Ninth Pass.
