|Award & Office Badges|
Vindiorix (pronounced Findorix) "Black Finn" ap Preachain of Clan Preachain and the Shire of Mountain Freehold.
Forester, brewer, and fighter.
Vindiorix "Black Finn" ap Preachain is a 1st Century CE Briton of the Deceangli Tribe from Ynys Mon. He served for a time as a legionnaire with Legio V Alaudae along the Rhine frontier and during the Batavian Rebellion of 70 CE. When he learned Rome was campaigning against the tribes of western Britain in 74 CE, he deserted from the legions and made his way back to defend his homeland. Four years later, in 78 CE, Rome conquered the Deceangli at Ynys Mon. Since then he has traveled across Western Europe as a member of a mercenary band called Clan Preachain.

In Case of Court
Please inform me if I need to attend court.
In mundane life I am Justin Davis, a career military officer and outdoors enthusiast. I dabbled in the SCA in college but only really became active starting in 2016 with the Shire of Mountain Freehold. I have been with Clan Preachain since 2006. This group is not technically SCA, although many of its members are in the SCA.
