Weyrleaders: N'ris and Abrille
Heraldry: A lone mountaintop with Belior and Timor in view; black and white on teal.
Founded toward the end of the Ninth Pass in order to relieve the overpopulated North, Equinox quickly became a relief Weyr, sending riders out to aid other Weyrs in Threadfall and offering a place to convalesce for injured dragonpairs. As Thread does not generally fall within its territory, it relies heavily on trade negotiations between its Holds in order to supply itself. Because of this, the bulk of commerce within the territory's Holds are from well-known trading posts.
Once a quarter, Jenau sends tithes in the form of lumber, fabric, and produce.
Lord Holder: Garil and Vinda
Heraldry: Teal, white, and brown on chevrony.
Emon Hold was the first Hold founded in the Wastes, and is one of the largest Holds on Pern. It claims the smallholds of Beltz, a minehold, and Yawron, a runner station, and has an extensive trading route system that leads through the Snowy Wastes.
Lord Holders: Darrin and Judaia
Heraldry: Teal, with bendlets in brown.
Jenau was the second Hold created in the Snowy Wastes, and is the only Hold within Equinox's territory to actually receive Threadfall. Known for its lush forests, it has three smallholds of note: Haines and Sitka, known best for their trading outposts; and Tongass, where there is a weaver hall.
Lord Regent: Anibea
Heraldry: Ruathan Red, brown, and black in chequy.
Cantwell is a new Hold, named after the caravans that roam the Wastes. its first Lord Holder was formerly of Ruatha, with a regency currently in place for his infant daughter. Within its territory are the smallholds, Aleut, a minehold, and Kada, a runner outpost.
