Introduction

I'm Mathghamhain Ua Ruadháin (Mah-huwan Uh Ru-ahn), a Scadian by marriage (to Alienor Salton). I serve as the herald and youth combat marshal for the crown province of Ostgardr.

Persona

Mathghamhain lives in northern Wales one thousand years ago, near the town of Llanrwst. He is a smallholder, running his farm with the assistance of his wife and son.

His mother was an Irish woman from Connacht who went to sea, trading (and, some would say, raiding) across the Irish Sea before settling down on the Welsh coast. His father and grandfather before him were farmers in the Conwy valley; the family claims to be descended from men who came from Rome long ago, although it's hard to know how much faith to put in such stories.

He is the oldest of five children, since scattered to the winds — one brother moved north and raises sheep, one traveled east and trains hounds for Saxon marcher lords, and another serves as a lay preacher in a nearby village, while his sister followed his mother's example and went to sea before settling down in far-off Iberia.
