Introduction

Lady Mariette de Bretagne. I found the SCA when I stumbled into a fight practice on the quad at Rutgers many moons ago. I've been lurking about the Shire of Rusted Woodlands more or less ever since, even though I presently reside in the wilds of central Pennsylvania.

Persona

Mariette is a 14th century Frenchwoman, though she sometimes dresses up in the saris brought back from India for her by her merchant father.

More Information

As a scribe, I aim to create award documents that the recipient's persona may have actually encountered in their period, tailoring wording specifically to them as much as possible. Because of this approach, I have done Viking rune tablets, Japanese kanji, and various European styles.
