Of Orcadian and Highland ancestry, Brita Pendane was a Manx healer in the 10th century.

Although her first name is a diminutive of Brigid, it is pronounced BREE-ta. She's just ornery like that.


Something of a misanthrope, Brita preferred long foraging expeditions and herbal experiments to treating patients, but her island's position as a busy Viking market and cultural crossroads put her skills in high demand whether she liked it or not. She adopted a Cornish orphan, hoping to pass on her skills, but even as a toddler the girl showed a fierce penchant for swordfighting. Consequently, the girl spent more time as a patient than as an assistant.

Brita lived in a cottage in one of the Isle of Man's small, quiet forests with her daughter and her husband, Olaf Flürken the Lewkslayer, a falconer and accomplished sailor.

Brita loves inkle weaving, sewing and painting.

Skills In Progress

  • Self-taught, with dubious results, Brita is always looking for in-person archery instruction.
  • Her duties as webminister for Panther Vale have opened many opportunities to hone her web skills. She is always happy to speak with fellow or aspiring webministers if they would like advice or assistance.
  • Very new to the SCA, she will never turn down help in navigating the intricacies of etiquette or learning the ins and outs of life in the SCA.

In Case of Court

In case of court, position someone by the back door to catch her because Brita will be out like a shot. Despite her gift for healing the woes of others, being the center of attention is overwhelming and she does not have the tools to handle it. Perhaps it's another skill in progress.
