Ballora is the new Masterherder in the Skies of Pern. She was named in the Council meeting at Telgar Hold, 3.1.31, and argued about the wisdom of placing an observatory on the Far Western Continent, without more knowledge on the life forms there, and «what effect contact with new ones would have with our indigenous species».
