Introduction

Lady Ona Seredžiška dwells by the sea in the far reaches of the Barony of Smoking Rocks on the island of Noëpe. She plays an upper-middling Lithuanian woman of 1590. Customary to her upbringing, Ona is successful in her musical endeavors, as well as dancing and entertaining. She is presently the Bardic Champion of Smoking Rocks and serves as Chronicler. Her interests also include many textile arts, hearth cooking, historical horticulture and agriculture, and period politics and religion.

Persona

Born to a reputable stonemason in 1552, Ona Seredžiška was the only child of Jonas and Elena Seredžiškus to survive to adulthood in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. She was raised in relative comfort on the family's estate, but through a series of misadventures in her adult life, was reduced to near-poverty and supported herself on a small farm for many years. In a fit of temporary insanity, she abandoned her life and farm and, at the age of thirty-eight, began a new life as a writer and scholar far from the home she had long known. The details are still being worked out...
