Mireille de Picardie (10th C AD Norman)

Mireille, also known as 'Mira' to her friends, was born into a Norman family in the early 10th century. Nestled in the heart of the Picardie region, her family was well-respected for their expertise in sheep husbandry and cheese-making, instilling in her a deep appreciation for the land and its bounty from a young age. Fascinated by the culinary arts, she eagerly assisted her parents in their work despite the frequent threat of Viking raids in nearby coastal settlements. Steadfast in her commitments as the eldest daughter, she took on the day-to-day household management while her parents tended the flock, finding solace and strength in the companionship of the family's pack of vigilant dogs who stood as steadfast sentinels guarding the homestead.

Now married, Mireille finds herself at the heart of a bustling manor house nestled along a local trade route within the Shire of Mountain Freehold. Providing respite for members of the Northern Army and weary travelers alike, she delights in providing guests with a wide array of culinary delights from across the knowne world, often experimenting with new recipes and ingredients.

As her husband often travels for trading missions or military campaigns, Mireille relies on her trusted terrier 'Pouka' to assist with various tasks around the estate, including fending off vermin, tracking and hunting small game, and assisting in transporting the cheeses she has made to market. She can often be found exploring the forests and meadows surrounding her estate, gathering wild herbs and foraging to supplement the household's provisions, ensuring the pantry is always well-stocked. Dabbling in folk remedies and herbal concoctions, she uses her knowledge to treat minor ailments among her family and guests.

While she respects the rituals and teachings of the church, Mireille's approach to coping with the uncertainties of medieval life places greater emphasis on personal intuition and a spiritual connection with the natural world, finding wisdom and inspiration in its cycles and patterns. She sees her canine Pouka as a symbol of this blended approach, embodying both the loyalty of a faithful companion and a guardian spirit, whose presence brings comfort and aid in times of uncertainty.

"Amidst yon noble abode, doth reside our cherished and faithful companion, known to all as Pouka. Clad in a coat of brindle, with hues of ebon, gold, and tan, she doth frolic with the swiftness of the wind, chasing small game with boundless ardor. Her spirit, bright as the morning sun, doth merry our hearts with playful gambols. Ever vigilant, she keepeth watch o'er our domain. With each bark and growl, she soundeth the alarm, alerting her mistress to the slightest hint of danger."
