Introduction

I live in the Barony of Concordia of the Snows and was introduced to SCA in 2010. I craft and use incense in performing my own daily spiritual practices. Researching traditional uses for herbs and incense has been a passion of mine for many years. I am a proud member of the household, DioneSidhe.

Persona

Phaedra Kenz-el Khafi is a late 14th century incense maker and spice merchant. Her mother and father were Hellenic and Moorish, respectively. As a successful merchant, her father traveled all over the known world and often took Phaedra and her mother with him. As a result, Phaedra spent a great deal of time during her childhood and youth in Andalusia, Greece and North Africa.

She also dabbles in the fiber arts for her personal use -specifically spinning since it would have been expected that she would have some basic skill in this area.
