Lady Aaradyn Ghyoot - sometimes seen as Betryse Aaradyn Ghyoot (but not to those who know her); a scribe, a voice herald, and one who likes to dance; she is often seen in the company of musicians. If you can't find her helping with Court, look for her at the thrown weapons range.

  • Award of Arms
  • Order of the Daystar (Carolingia)
  • Order of the Moon (Carolingia)
  • Order of the Silver Brooch (done at East Kingdom 50 Year)
  • Order of the Silver Crescent (Bergental/BBM Yule, 2018)
  • Order of the Maunche (Birka, 2023)

Pronounced Air-ah-din Ghee-oh (the t is silent), her name is Flemish, though her persona is much earlier.

Aaradyn became Apprenticed to Mistress Eloise of Coulter just before the plague struck our lands and but has been studying through the aether under Eloise’s guidance. As Eloise says: “if you find fault with her, take it to her - she is an adult. If you find praise for her, bring it to us both.”

Fun story... Aaradyn's name wasn't always this documentable! It started life as the product of a Jedi Name Generator online. After hanging out with dancers for a few years she learned of a dance with her name (spelled MUCH differently) and went hunting... and found her grandmother's maiden name in the rolls! That led her to a spelling for Aaradyn in the same rolls, and thus her name passed. (with a first name, because those are both last names, but everyone knows her as Aaradyn)


Aaradyn was formerly a French lady in the 1300's - but time slips, and so does she.

Aaradyn is now a merchant's daughter, born shortly after Clovis 1 died in 511 and the land became known as Neustria. If you brought her village into the present day, it wouldn't be far from what is now called Calais. Her father trades in many goods, and living on the coast has been good for business between the Frankish kingdoms and Cent, the Saxon land across the water. She is married to a man who loves music and helps protect her father's goods upon the water.

In Case of Court... I would really rather not know ahead of time *what* award, but I am perfectly fine with being on a Court Summons. I would, however, insist that my lord Guinemer d'Anglade be informed of the goings on so that he can be present. Please also notify: Eadgyth aet Staeningum, Ysane la fileresse, Deirdre Grenewode, Margretha Gyllenstierna, and my Laurel, Eloise of Coulter.
