I don't like the idea of abject self-effacement in anyone, for any reason. However, Brekke was patently the wrong personality to be a Weyrwoman. She must've had some potential, or Wirenth would never have chosen her. I just wonder what happened on the way to prevent her from developing it. I'm with Anareth in not liking the way Anne solved Brekke's conflict, instead of making her face her crafter conditioning and grow up, Anne killed off Brekke's dragon so that she could keep her craftbred morals.
