Telgar Weyr Shield

P'tero was a dragonrider for Telgar Weyr in late in the First Interval and beginning of the Second Pass. His dragon was blue Ormonth.


P'tero took part in the flyover demonstration over Fort Hold. As a show of skill he dove off his blue dragon Ormonth who was miming a wounded wing so that Weyrleader K'vin could catch him on his bronze dragon Charanth. In an ill-advised ploy to impress M'leng, his weyrmate, he made the leap before K'vin had given the signal. Due to fortuitous circumstances K'vin just happened to be looking his direction as he leaped and was able to catch him. Unbeknownst to the crowd, P'tero was still attached to Ormonth by extra long fighting straps and was in no real danger, although he could have risked deep bruising or a broken ankle if Charanth hadn't been so skilled a flyer.

After landing, his weyrmate scolded him far more effectively than their Weyrleader could for "putting my heart where my mouth was" and risking his dragon.

He and his dragon saved Iantine, from a sign that Iantine had made in the snow outside a woodman's hold.

In an attempt to show his bravery to his weyrmate M'leng after having been attacked by the Southern Continent's wild felines, he tried to get into the First Fall fighting wings but was grounded by K'vin.

Personality and traits
