Tillek Bloodline

Introduction
Zi Ongola moved to the western peninsula and founded Tillek in Turn 22. It took five years to find the right name for the Hold, it is unknown what the place was called between Turn 22 and 27. The death of Jim Tillek in Turn 25 might have been a reason to name the Hold after him, especially since it was a sea hold with a harbor (that became the most important one on Pern and the home of the Mastercrafthall of the Fish(er)craft.

Genealogy or Bloodline

First Pass

A-1

Possibly Zi Ongola, Lieutenant Commander and commander of the Yokohama, meteorologist.
Married 1st N.N., died during the Nathi space war.
Married 2nd Landing during Turn 15 second-month (?) 1 Sabra Stein, leader of a Thread fighter squadron.

 

Zi Ongola was a friend of Admiral Paul Benden. His wife, children and entire family was vaporized by the Nathi, and while on Pern he still grieved for them. Paul Benden specifically requested Ongola to join the Pern expedition. Zi was married not long after landing to Sabra Stein, which was one of the first marriages in the colony. The family had a gold fire lizard named Fancy (menta) and settled in the Jordan area. Zi and Ongola had a son, called Shuvin but Sabra was already pregnant before she officially married Zi (which led Paul Benden to remark that "the big gun was not firing blanks").
Zi and Sabra probably had more children than the two mentioned underneath. In Dragonsdawn we can read that Sabra had left their children with Theo Force when she assisted her husband [DD/383].

J-1

Melongel of Tillek, Lord Holder of Tillek Hold, born Tillek Hold c. 2430, died Tillek Hold winter 2485 (buried at sea).
Married Mardela Hold c. 2452 Juvana of Mardela/Tillek, Lady Holder of Tillek Hold, born probably Mardela Hold c. 2430, died after 2485; older sister of Kasia (Masterharper Robinton's spouse); daughter of Bourdon, Holder of Mardela Hold, and Brashia, Lady Holder of Mardela Hold.

Lord Melongel was the ideal Lord Holder for the main Fishhold, he had even qualified for his captaincy but had never taken a command. He thoroughly understood the needs of that Craft as well as the agriculture and forestry that made Tillek a profitable Hold. He was a fair Holder if ever there was one [MHoP]. According to the Hold harper Minnarden, the Lord Holder was also a well-read man [MHoP]. He died of a fever, which was a result of braking almost every bone in his body after a fall from a runnerbeast. It was strongly suspected (but not proven) that the fall was not an accident and that Fax or his men had been behind it (having given the runnerbeast lur-weed to eat) [MHoP].
Melongel met his wife, a major Holderís daughter, when on a cruise around the Southern Sea to Nerat. He espoused her, and carried her back to his Hold. Masterharper Robinton heard him call it "the most profitable journey" he'd ever made [MHoP].
Lord Melongel and Lady Juvana had nine children, the middle children of which were part of Robinton's chorus group when he was posted at Tillek [MHoP].
At the time he was still the prospective Lord Holder, Groghe of Fort Hold spent a Turn stewarding for Lord Melongel at Tillek Hold [MHoP].
Lady Juvana "spent a Turn" with Lady Evelene of High Reaches Hold, which probably means she was fostered at High Reaches in her youth [MHoP].

2 N.N.

4 N.N. (a son), he was a member of Robinton's chorus group when he was posted at Tillek, and was considered musical enough to have been apprenticed to the Harper Hall [MHoP].

J-11

Oterel of Tillek, Lord Holder of Tillek Hold (confirmed 2485), born probably Tillek Hold 2453 (he was one year younger than Masterharper Robinton [MHoP]), died probably Tillek Hold prior to 2526.
Married c. 2485 N.N., Lady Holder of Tillek Hold, born 2458.

Lord Oterel was confirmed as Lord Holder of Tillek in 2485, at a conclave following his fatherís funeral [MHoP].  Of Lord Oterel and his wife only the three sons mentioned below are known; they probably had only these three since they are mentioned separately as the oldest (Blesserel), middle (Terentel) and youngest (Ranrel) sons in All the Weyrs of Pern [AtWoP]. There might, and will probably have been daughters too, of course, but no mention is made of them.

 
Children (known):
1 Blesserel, born c. 2485, follows J-111.
2 Terentel, born probably Tillek Hold c. 2490. Terentel was Lord Oterel's middle son [AtWoP/9:192].
3 Ranrel, born probably Tillek Hold c. 2495, follows J-113.
 

J-111

Blesserel of Tillek, born probably Tillek Hold c. 2485.
Married c. 2510: Esrella, born c. 2490.

Blesserel was Lord Oterelís first born son [AtWoP/9:192]. He and Esrella had four fine strong sons [AtWoP/202].

 
Children:
1 N.N. (a son).
2 N.N. (a son).
3 N.N. (a son).
4 N.N. (a son).

Ranrel of Tillek, Lord Holder of Tillek Hold (confirmed Tillek Hold 2526), born probably Tillek Hold ca. 2495, journeyman fisher.
Married c. 2520: N.N., a Master Weaver [AtWoP/9:202].

Ranrel was Lord Oterelís youngest son [AtWoP/9:192]. He is probably born not too long before 2500 since Warder Brand of Ruatha Hold remarks to Lord Jaxom that it is good that , after Ranrel's confirmation, Jaxom (born 2505) now has another Holder nearer his own age [AtWoP/10:225]. Ranrel and his wife had five children [AtWoP/141].
