Persona

I have two personae; both of which are based in the Burgundy region of continental Europe.
During the 100 Years War, my persona lived in the Duchy of Bugundy

My primary persona is 14th century (1340's). Having survived the Great Plague, I became a soldier to the Crown to earn a living.

My other persona is of an early 12th century (1105) Crusader who became disillusioned by the politics of the Church. After returning to western Europe, I became a member of the army for Cynnabar.

I often carry the heraldry of my wife onto the field. Her heraldry is: Per pale vert and argent all semy-de-lys counterchanged.

Squiring

NOTE*** This is a work in progress....

Sir Alaric and I agreed to a knight/squire relationship in 2009. The actual belting and swearing of fealty happened at Pennsic War 38, 2009.

We began our discussion at a Tournament of Chivalry held in the Barony of Flaming Gryphon, I believe in 2007. The following January 2008, we finalized the last details at Regular Event in the Cleftlands wherein I became his man-at-arms. This was to last a year and a day.

It is funny how things go sometimes. When the next year came around, my wife and I were in attendance at Regular Event 2009 (a year and a day, really!) where Sir Alaric and I were going to discuss the next step. It was feast time, and we were all getting ready to sit at our table, when His Majesty Ullr Amaranthson placed His hand on my shoulder and asked my lady and I to join Them at the head table. (You never say "No" to Their Majesties at a request like this.) Well, Sir Alaric and I did not get a chance to have that necessary conversation. So more time passed before we could make any plans.

Now comes Pennsic War 38 (2009). Sir Alaric asked me to meet him at Midrealm Royal encampment. There he would set me on the quest to gain my squire's belt.

Interests and SCA-related hobbies

SCA-wide, I enjoy armored combat, learning about the many and various Arts & Sciences, and helping out at events.

I am now a potter and am studying the history pottery and ceramics.

Non-SCA Activities
I enjoy gardening, spending copious amounts of time with my wife, and my cats.
I also have two (currently) running fresh water aquariums: 55gal, and 90gal.
I like to watch old cheesy Sci-Fi movies and Star Trek (TOS preferred).
