Brekke was brought to Benden Weyr by F'nor during a Search where she managed to Impress the queen, Wirenth. Kylara, the Weyrwoman of Southern Weyr where Brekke was placed, thought back with distaste about how Brekke impressed Wirenth when other candidates seemed much more suitable. Brekke was very devoted to her queen and cared well for Wirenth, as noticed by F'nor, Manora, and Lessa.
Following Wirenth's impression, Brekke was placed in Southern Weyr as a junior weyrwoman. Kylara, the Southern Weyrwoman, often left the menial and tedious tasks that accompanied the position of Senior Weyrwoman to Brekke, who often did them without complaint.
When it came time for Wirenth's first mating flight, Brekke controlled Wirenth's urges, and despite the absence of F'nor and Canth, Wirenth rose successfully. However the lack of control on the part of Kylara (who was in Nabol with Meron at the time) roused Prideth as Wirenth overflew the senior Queen. It resulted in a cataclysmic duel between the rival queens in which both of them were lost between, with heavy consequences for both of their riders. Brekke went into a severe depression that left her near suicidal, and was only saved from it by F'nor and Berd. Kylara was reduced to a child-like state.
Lessa and the rest of the Weyrfolk were furious, and grieved the loss of the two Queens. Knowing that Impressions could be made with both dragons and fire lizards, Lessa hoped that Brekke could re-Impress another queen dragon. So despite the arguments from F'nor and Manora, she decreed that Brekke was to be presented to Ramoth's most recent clutch. When the hatching occurred, although the golden queen was receptive to Brekke, she couldn't go through with Impression. Though the re-impression failed, Brekke was broken out of her severe depression by her fire lizard Berd and managed to resume a productive life in Benden Weyr. Lessa, out of kindness, offered to return Brekke back to the Farm Craftmasters, but it was mutually agreed that Brekke belonged and wished to remain amongst the Weyrfolk.
When Ruth called for help for his rider when he had firehead, she and Sharra helped nurse Lord Jaxom in what would be later on called Cove Hold. When MasterHarper Robinton had his heart attack at Ista Weyr, Ruth was willing to take her there.
