Otto Hegelman was one of the original eighteen dragonriders of Pern. His dragon was brown Shoth. He was part of Sean Connell's wing.

Appearance and personality

Prior to impressing Shoth, Otto sometimes spoke with a stutter. After bonding with Shoth, his stutter disappeared. When the dragonriders began their practice of going between, he often preached caution. It was his idea for every rider to keep a log of reference points.
