I am L. Severin Festschdermacher, was formally known as Labhruinn MacMhìcheil, where most called me the familiar name of Larry. I have been playing the SCA game since 1990. My interests are very varied, some with just an interest without getting too deep into, while others, I go into that pool head long, and neck deep. Mostly, I am a costumer and a cook. Over the years, I've held a few officer positions in both the Barony Beyond the Mountain (BBM) and one of it's territories, the Canton of Fennbrycg.


My original Persona {Labhruinn MacMhicheil} was a lowland Celt of Scots Irish mixed heritage, making his living as a simple tunic maker and merchant. One day, I came to the aid of a young lady and her son, from a French province, we took up residence in Stafford-shire, where we wed and moved to Manchester. To help make ends meet, I became a costumer for a few traveling players.

Over the years, my persona advanced along with my tailoring abilities and a new found interest as a Feast Cook. I now am, a late period Chef and a Tailor of German - Irish descent {L. Severin Festschdermacher}. To keep my skills honed, so to speak, I farm myself out to my Barony, and the surrounding Baronies, as an assistant to their cooks. I can be found among the Baronial and East Kingdom Order of Precedence (listed below) under Severin Festschdermacher (AKA) Labhruinn MacMhicheil.

Apprenticed to Countess Morgen DuVal (10/5/1996). Do to life's many ebbs and flows, my Laurel is unable to play as often as she would like. I was given the choice to dissolve the ties, or stay and work as a student to other Peers. The answer to that question is different for all, my answer was to stay tied to her, and seek out others for knowledge and experience. I have had the pleasure to continue my learning from many Laurels and Pelicans from the East Kingdom.
