Vergerin of Bitra, Lord: Lord Holder of Bitra (confirmed Turn's End 257). Brother of Lord Kinver of Bitra Hold, uncle of Lord Chalkin. It was said that he was done out of the succession of Bitra Hold by his nephew Chalkin by giving him an isolated mountain hold in the back of beyond [RSR/1:59]. It was rumoured that Vergerin and Chalkin of Bitra had played a game, the stake being an uncontested succession to Bitra Hold [RSR/11:287-288].
By the time the discussion about the impeachment of Lord Chalkin became to take on serious form, Vergerin was still not located [RSR/9:222]. When dragonriders started looking for Vergerin because of the chance of impeachment of Lord Chalkin, they found his hold cleared out and made to look as if nobody had lived there at all. There was no evidence of any violence but though Vergerin had cleared his hold of vegetation someone had thrown debris all around to disguise the clearance [RSR/9:228]. Vergerin came out of hiding right after the arrest of his nephew Lord Chalkin. He had figured that the safest way to hide was under Chalkin's nose and had lived in one of the nearby cotholds, earning his keep in one of the beastholds [RSR/13:304]. Vergerin did lose his rights to the succession in a wager with Lord Chalkin but said that Chalkin had cheated [RSR/13:305]. He was accused by Lord Chalkin and Lady Nadona for breaking his word, acting as a traitor and of setting up the whole impeachment process [RSR/13:306]. Vergerin accepted the position of provisional Lord Holder and the assistance of a management team, consisting out of younger sons and daughters from every other Hold, until a final decision on the subject of succession was taken on the Turn's End conclave [RSR/13:309]. He was confirmed as Bitran Lord Holder at Turn's End 257 but was not abjured to train his young relatives (Chalkin's two sons) to succession though he was - in conscience - bound to see them well taken care of, educated and prepared to make their own living. He was relieved of his promise (to Chalkin) to have no legitimate heirs and promptly installed a nine year old son and a five year old daughter as heirs (nobody knew who their mother had been). Vergerin also made it clear he was interested in acquiring a suitable spouse to hold as his lady, so supposedly he was not married (although having more than one wife on Pern wasn't illegal, just not practiced often) [RSR/14:324]. Vergerin eventually found "Chalkin's hoard" (a money chest, hidden under one of the steps of the back staircase from the Lord Holder's office to the kitchen) and he put the money to good use, hiring craftsmen with it to repair the hold and prepare it for Threadfall and supplying his holders with materials to make repairs to their holds [RSR/16:385-386].
