Introduction

Aelia Fortunata (EYE-lee-ah for-too-NAH-tah) has been playing off and on in the Society since roughly AS 43, but became more active starting in AS 48. Her entry to the society was through her local dance practice, and one can frequently find her dancing, spinning or engaged in conversation. Sometimes she can be found recreating classical Roman recipes or translating things into Latin. In fact she rather enjoys translating things into Latin.

Roman onomastics for women being what they are, she is properly addressed as Fortunata, as Aelia is her family name. Her preferred title is 'Domina' (DOE-mee-nah,) which is the Latin equivalent of 'Lady,' but will also accept 'Lady' as well.

Persona

Fortunata has a classical Roman persona, dating from the great civil wars marking the end of the Republic.

She is the only daughter of a wealthy plebeian family who made their fortune in trade between Rome, Gaul and points north. During the civil wars, the family threw their hand in with Caesar. Unfortunately, as Rome was no longer safe for a young woman, Fortunata was carted off to a family villa in Gaul. One of the safer bits of Gaul, but Gaul nonetheless. Her father will permit her to return to the city when it is safe, but who knows when that will be?
