Introduction

THL Muin maqq Mínaín. Having Started in the Kingdom of Atlantia, in the Barony of Caer Mear, Muin earned his AoA, GoA, and was admitted to the Order of the Pearl, earning several Cear Mearian awards along the way. While in Cear Mear he served as a group Herald to the College of Yarnvid. After moving to the Barony of Bhakail Muin served as MoAS, Exchequer, and most recently as Seneschal for the Canton of Black Icorndall. He has earned his Maunch, as well as being given the Award of the Silver Nautilus, by King Bryan (II) back in Atlantia at the first Ruby Joust. Muin's Elevation, and Induction into the Order of the Laurel has left him both humbled, and contemplating additional Household Members to further his Dreams of using A&S to Conquer or mildly Overthrow the Known World. To further these goals, he has taken Lady Iriniia Mieszkowna, and Lady Mairi Crawford as his Apprentices, and to be his "Black Hands."

Persona

Pictish artisan of the Dalriada, Muin spent the end of the 10th century learning his trade and traveling to foster with the various experts in the field of jewelry work among the Catla, the Fihi, the Taexla and even the Caledonians. Many of the Graceus amongst whom he has traveled argue over whether he is the avatar of Hephaestus...or that of Hades. Living now in the Barony of Bhakail in the Canton of Black Icorndall, Muin works to teach others what he has learned, to keep the Craft and its traditions alive, while occasionally offering the guidance only a Pictish Druid can be trusted to bring.
