Benden Weyr Shield

S'loner was Weyrleader of Benden Weyr during the Eighth Interval. His dragon was bronze Chendith.


S'loner was born in Benden Weyr, where he grew and eventually impressed his dragon Chendith. He rose through the ranks, and evenually became Benden's Weyrleader. His weyrmate was Carola, Benden's Weyrwoman. S'loner would eventually have two sons, Falloner, who would become F'lon after impressing, and Bravonner.

Following a hatching at Benden Weyr, F'lon would offer to take Maidir, Lord Holder of Benden Hold, back to his hold. Minutes into the journey, S'loner would die of heart problems. Spankith would instinctively suicide, taking Maidir with him, resulting in the Lord Holder's death. Following S'loner's death, Benden Weyr would be led by a group of senior bronze riders, until F'lon was able to become Weyrleader at the next mating flight.
