Introduction

Gwillim Kynith has been in the SCA since (2002) AS XXXVI. He lives in the Shire of Endewearde.

Persona

Gwillim Kynith is a 15th century Welshman raised in Castle Caldicot, Monmouthshire, Wales. Having lost both parents to the plague, he was raised by Humphrey, Earl of Buckingham, and family. Showing great prowess with the bow and a keen ability at stalking game, he was given the name "Kynith" at an early age. He became well versed in music, dancing, and other Courtly ways within the halls of grand Caldicot, and studied the art of stained glass in the nearby village.

Today, Gwillim lives in the great Shire of Endewearde, geographic center of the East Kingdom. He has made a name for himself there as an archer and as a bard, the latter earning him a place in the Order of the Troubadour. Through his interest in dancing and a willingness to share that interest, he became Endewearde's Dancemaster and found himself named a Companion of the Order of Terpsichore. As a result of his participation, leadership, and courtesy, Gwillim was made the Seneschal of Endewearde, an office which he holds to this day.
