Default Re: Why was Lessa's talent at hearing dragons important?

HAD is a rare ability. And I notice there are no MALE riders ever credited with it.

I think maybe it has soemthing to do with the Queens being the ones to direct the traffic, so to speak. We see the Golds in all three species ( Fire Lizard, Watchwere and Dragon) do the ordering. I'm not sure the browns would always listen to the bronzes, certainly not to the blues and greens... and I doubt the bronzes would listen to any one but the Golds. Natural pecking order in the pack.

SO> have a rider who can hear all the dragons and speak to all the saves time and energy and gives ONE focal point, rather than a wider net where messages can get corrupted.
