Persona

Herrin Solveig Bjarnardottir is the great-great-great-great-great-great-awesome-great-great grandaughter of the Noble and fierce Norse woman who's name she bears. It was said that although many generations had passed, the resemblance between the two is striking. The haunting idea that younger Solveig may be the reincarnation of her relative. Her passions for performance in the ways of the Bard and swift and keen play of the sword leave her a bit of an outcast in society of the late 1500's within Maien, Germany.
