Introduction

Baroness Doucette de Verdun resides in the East Kingdom and enjoys SCA Equestrian activities and serving as a retainer. She devotes most of her time in the SCA to equestrian activities, both marshaling and competing until recently on her horse Squire Wilhelm (mka Willie) and now on her Norwegian Fjord mare (no SCA name yet, nicknamed Baby War Pony, mka Olivia). Her original interest in combining SCA and equestrian activities was sparked when her horse Sorel (mka Rugged Sting Ray) was injured and she used SCA Equestrian activities to keep him interested and happy during his rehabilitation.

Doucette also participates in sewing and fiber arts and occasionally helps with feasts.

Doucette is a member of The House of the Silver Scorpion.

Persona

Doucette hails from the northeastern (Alsace-Lorraine) region of France in the 13th century. Her family farms the fields outside the town of Verdun.
