|Affiliation|| Landing |
As an agronomist, Pat was one of the first people to land on Pern. His job was to set up a control shed to determine whether plants brought by the colonists would grow in Pern's soil.
He lost a bet to an agronomist over which site would be the landing site. The agronomist won an acre of land from Hempenstall.
Pat settled on Bordeaux Stake.
