|The MasterHarper of Pern|
Petiron was a Harper during the Second Long Interval and Ninth Pass. He was a composer of elaborate tunes. He was the father of Robinton. He spent his last days at Half Circle Seahold and discovered Menolly's talents, encouraging her to become a Harper herself.
Is the name Petiron an anagram of the name of the early medieval composer Master Perotin?
