Annika Bjornsdottir hails from the Barony of Iron Bog. Some call it... New Jersey. Annika has so far fallen in love with the SCA, and her local barony especially. She feels that the people of Iron Bog are amazing, and that she is lucky to live in such a place. Annika (called either Anna or Nika for short), is a scribe, and loves creating artwork for people. While she does love getting positive reactions to her work, she really feels that it's a special thing she can do for her barony (and the Kingdom) in contribution to the whole of what we do.
Annika is still new to the SCA, and has much to learn of it. Her first event was May-Be in 2015. There she saw, for the very first time, a large display of the Scribal Arts, and the beautiful works called award scrolls. Annika had stumbled into bliss! At that point she was driven to learn all she could of a scribe's work, and at the very next year's May-Be event in 2016, she had done two scrolls which were awarded that day. After the 2017 May-Be (for which she'd done 3 scrolls, and gave a class on Scribal Arts), she felt ready to do Kingdom level scrolls and has since become a full-fledged scribe in service to the Crown. Still learning all she can about the world of a medieval scribe, Annika works to better her skills, so she might better serve her Kingdom.
Main interests include blacksmithing, metalworking, calligraphy and illumination. Other interests include All The Things.
This persona is not a fully developed one. it is a portrayal of a late Viking Age Hiberno-Norse woman of Ireland, who may have family ties to Sweden.
