Brekke's cry was a call Brekke shouted out in her mind to every dragon and fire-lizard on Pern as a result of F'nor going to the Red Star where she sensed his danger and cried out as she had just lost her dragon and did not want her mate to be taken from her as well in her cry she uttered the words "DON'T LEAVE ME ALONE". Every dragon and fire-lizard on Pern immediately rushed to Benden Weyr and formed a living net of Dragons to save Canth who had gone between back from the Red Star but was severely injured and could not fly. The extreme stress from the cry permeated into the fire-lizard who them passed on this message to their human companions caused fear and shock within the people, most notably Menolly.
