Vindiorix "Black Finn" Ordowik of Clan Preachain and the Shire of Mountain Freehold.

A 1st Century CE Briton of the Ordovices tribe.

Forester, fighter, brewer, and half-ass maker of various things.


Vindiorix Ordowik is a late 1st Century CE Briton of the Ordovices Tribe from what is now western Wales. 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 legion and made his way back to defend his homeland. Four years later, in 78 CE, Rome successfully defeated the Ordovices and conquered Mona. Vindiorix fled Britannia and now serves as an auxiliary cavalryman with Ala Gallorum et Thracum Constantium in Syria.

More Information

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 SCA, although many of its members are.

Vindiorix "Black Finn" Ordowik is in NO WAY related to Jack Flynn the infamous poacher known to frequent the forests of Mountain Freehold.
