Default Re: Unlikeable Main characters (was titled Favorite USUAL Character?)

Every woman who lives in a weyr is techically a weyrwoman, whether or not she actually rides a dragon. Although to be fair, the term usually designates women riders. There is only one Weyrwoman, though, the senior queenrider. So both Mirrim and Lessa are weyrwomen, but only Lessa is a Weyrwoman.

I agree with your analysis re: Brekke. Kylara could have made a good Weyrwoman if Lessa'd taken her in hand rather than just sent her away.

Between Dragonflight and Dragonquest about 7 Turns pass, but I have trouble remembering that sometimes because Anne's characters don't develop much, if at all during that time...
