Introduction

Lord Alexandre Saint Pierre resides in the Province of Malagentia (Southern Maine) with his lady, Adrienne d'Evreus. Apprentice to Mistress Carolyne de la Pointe, he is a scribe with an unnatural love of calligraphy & author of a scribal blog called the Pensive Pen. When not bent over a scroll or teaching others the joys of scribal art, he can often be found on the archery range working as a Marshal or competing with his crossbow.

Alexandre first found his way to the SCA in the mid '90s, drawn in by archery in the Shire of Frosted Hills of the East Kingdom. Soon after he returned to Malagentia where he became interested in the art of defense, and spent several years studying and then helping to teach rapier combat; finally being named a Provost in the League of Rapier Academies before hanging up his rapier.

His interest in archery returned, and he spent a few years becoming deadly with a crossbow before being recognized as a Grand Master Bowman. Continuing on the theme of precision involving feathers, he became a calligrapher. Recently, he's also spent time learning the ins and outs of being an armory-focused herald.

Personas

(Current) 1380's France. Raised in Southern France, Alexandre worked in his youth as a mercenary crossbowman for Gaston Phoebus. He has since left that service and passed through Northern France where he works as a Lieutenant within Colonel Woolfe's companies. He works as a calligrapher for hire when not on campaign with the Companies.

(Retired) Late 16th century France. Originally working to make his fame as a swordsman, he was civilized for polite society by his friends and the Lady Ninian. Having been mostly extracted from the rough taverns of his youth, he now spends his time working as Lieutenant in Wolfe's Privateers, rallying the archers of the kingdom, and studying the art of beautiful script.
