I am Mistress Brita Mairi Svensdottir. I have been in the SCA since 1987, and am a founding member of the shire (now Barony) of Endewearde. I was one of the first fourteen people inducted into the Order of the Golden Rapier when the order was created at Pennsic XXI by Ruslan and Margaret. While my first love is rapier combat, I am also a herald (both book and vocal), and an archer. I am authorized in all forms of rapier combat, have done vocal heraldry for courts, tournaments and equestrian activities, and am a member of the Sisters of St. Walburga, a heraldic commentary group, where I am learning more than I contribute. I am also in the infamous Sharc non-household. I have an AoA, a Silver Crescent, an OGR (Order of the Golden Rapier), a Pelican, a Queen's Order of Courtesy (from Kiena I) and a King's Cypher (for providing Bjorn with a photographic history of his reign). I received an augmentation of arms from Brennan and Caoilfhionn at Birka in 20016.
Norsewoman living in Scotland (the Hebrides).
