F'lessan, born Felessan, is the only son of Lessa and F'lar, the Benden Weyrleaders.


Early Life / Childhood

He has no siblings as his own birth was considered too dangerous to Lessa's wellbeing and F'lar was unwilling to risk her life, even though Lessa longed for more children. Felessan was weyrbred, meaning he was born and raised in Benden Weyr. Through his mother he is descended from the Ruathan bloodline, as is his friend Jaxom, young Lord of Ruatha Hold, though Felessan has far more Ruathan blood than the Lord. It was Lessa's decision to keep her son in the weyr so that Jaxom could be Lord unchallenged. Although Jaxom is three years his senior the two of them often played whenever Jaxom was brought for visits from Ruatha to Benden. One of these instances resulted in the excursion in which young Felessan took Jaxom into the Hatching Ground to see Ramoth's clutch, where he daringly touched an unusually small white egg, much to Felessan's horror. From that same clutch came Jaxom's future partner and dragon, Ruth.


When he came of age Felessan was presented to one of Ramoth's clutches and impressed the Bronze Golanth. After impression, in accordance with tradition, his birth name Felessan was shortened to F'lessan.


He meets Tai in the Archives at Landing, he recall seeing her impress Zaranth at a Monaco Bay Weyr hatching, Standing around and describing to Master Wansor what was going on, she couldn't decide what she should do keep telling the Master what was going on or sooth the green hatchling.

F'lessan fell in love with a young green rider, Tai. After bad experiences with mating flights, Tai was terrified of them, and attempted to fight the urge to mate when her Zaranth flew. F'lessan comforted her and showed her the way it should be, magical, and his Golanth flew Zaranth.

F'lessan and Golanth were later severely wounded by a feline attack in Honshu. Tai and Zaranth escaped with scars but F'lessan was left with a permanent limp and Golanth would probably never be able to fly properly again. But with what Zaranth showed him, they could make it to Cove Hold to study with Masters Wansor and Erragon to make Honshu Weyrhold an active StarHold.
