Benden Weyr Shield

Jora was the Weyrwoman before Lessa.


She was described as incompetent, slothful, and obese. She had very little control over her queen, Nemorth, and allowed her to gorge unrestrained when she was rising to mate, resulting in small clutches. Nemorth never laid more than twelve eggs, and only one queen egg in her entire lifetime as a result of Jora allowing her to gorge and rise to mate with a full belly.

The was thoroughly disliked by everyone on Pern, and F'lar makes references to how she was disgusting and obese. He quickly stops comparing Lessa to Jora because, as he puts it, 'there is no comparison'.

Nothing is mentioned of Jora's origins, however, it is mentioned that she was permanently attached to F'lon, F'lar's father, and quickly became unmanageable after his death. When Nemorth rises to mate for the last time, she is flown by R'gul's Hath. It is thought that the decline of the Weyr is mainly her fault because she indirectly encouraged laziness ans sloth.

Personality and traits

She was lazy, stubborn, indifferent, and disgusting. She was also afraid of heights.
