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.

Petiron was originally from Telgar Hold. He was never very close to his son, resenting him for taking attention from Merelan, and blind to his son's talents.

Appearances Edit

Is the name Petiron an anagram of the name of the early medieval composer Master Perotin?
