I am Lord Alexander Clarke, Esquire, and I reside in the Shire of Hadchester. I have been involved in the SCA since 2002 where I first started attending heavy list practices in Malagentia. After graduating college I moved back to my home town and was instrumental in the formation of what is now the Shire of Hadchester, serving as its first Senechal from 2008 to 2010. I am a member of two households, The Priory of St Colin the Dude, and also a squire to Syr Cedric of Thanet.
The year is 1415, I patiently await news of King Henry the V's victory against the French forces at Agincourt. I have made a comfortable home here in Calais the past 5 years, with my wife and soon to be child. Our small farm on the outskirts of town supports us, and what I earn being in service as a Man-at-Arms on the city watch keeps us warm in the winters.
I am squire to the noble Knight Syr Cedric of Thanet, and am welcomed as a member of his household. His kindness and guidance help me find my way on the path of Chivalry.
