Lady Béibhinn Mhodartha, formerly known as Lady Bevin an Broc Drannach and Lady Bevin niBriuc, started her SCA career in 1995, while studying at Purdue University. She spent her first few years playing with the Barony of Rivenstar, and after graduation, moved south to the Shire of Riviere Constelle, then spent a brief time with the Shire of Stonecroft before moving to the Kingdom of Atlantia in 2007. After two years in the Shire of Roxbury Mill, she moved to the Barony of Ponte Alto, where she lived until Christmas of 2013, when she relocated to the Barony of Bhakail. In 2014, she returned to the Midrealm, and currently resides in southern Constellation once again.

Béibhinn in the SCA is a bit of a time traveler, garb-wise, but has a preference for early period/simpler garb. She is a dabbler in A&S in general, though she spends most of her time in various fiber arts (especially narrow wares weaving & spinning). She can knit, but doesn't enjoy it. She does enjoy thrown weapons and archery, but has no interest in heavy or light combat. She is also a bit of a service junkie, and spent a lot of time in Atlantia retaining for her baron/baroness, and occasionally for Royalty.

At Mounted War Games VII, Béibhinn earned her first equestrian authorizations, for general riding and games. She has been enjoying getting to know the Midrealm Equestrian community, and hopes to become more involved and continue learning more.


Béibhinn is a spinner/weaver in Ireland. This persona bio may be expanded upon in the future.
