Lessa's family was killed by Fax while he took over Ruatha and she seeks revenge to claim her rightful throne. Lady Gemma has died and given birth to a baby boy.
The child lives! It is male!
I will not renounce my throne! *hits Lessa*
I am going to kill Fax now.
F'lar tries to convince Lessa to come to the Weyr with him, but she wants to run away. F'lar's dragon Mnementh grabs her and they go to Benden Weyr.
Come to the Weyr with me!
The Weyr? I am going to leave and take my throne.
F'lar and Lessa arrive in Benden Weyr. The Hatching begins and Lessa impresses the queen hatchling, Ramoth. She bonds telepathically to Ramoth.
*Begins to bond telepathically*
Catch me if you can!
Two years have past and Ramoth is full grown and the time to mate has come. F'lar is not present, so Lessa calls to Mnementh telepathically and makes it in time to mate. Mnementh mates with Ramoth and F'lar becomes the Weyrleader and Lessa the Weyrwoman.
F'lar begins to teach Lessa how to travel between. Her and Ramoth learn the skill and try on their own, resulting in traveling back in time. She sees that she is what caused Fax's success in Ruatha. She returns to Benden Weyr and F'lar is furious, but she explains what she did.
Ramoth! We have traveled back in time!
Prideth lays 32 eggs. This gives Benden Weyr more resources to defeat the Threads, as they are short on Dragons.
