Introduction

Lairde Tegwen ferch Cydifor ap Bleddyd is a member of Clann O'Choda and Sept House Ardubrath. They have been part of the Society for thirty-five years, since the small age of two. Their parents are Lady Siobhan inSceith Girr and Lord Etienne LeNoir, and their aunt is Lady Alexandra of Silverwood all from the Barony of Stonemarche. At the age of four, Tegwen won second place in a bardic competition on account of being particularly small and full of chutzpah, singing Rose, Rose.

A member of Clann O'Choda, Lairde Tegwen has been involved with the household for some years. They were given their ribbon of membership at Pennsic, Anno Societas 2013. They lead a small septhouse, Ardubrath, with their fellow head-of-house, Fearghus O'Choda.

In recent years, Tegwen has been busy at work in the Barony of Stonemarche as Chronicler, and working as the Birka Merchant Coordinator for 2017, 2018, and 2019. They will be Merchant Coordinator for Birka 2020 as well. In January of 2017, Mistress Aisha bint Jamil accepted Tegwen as a protege, and continues the student-pelican relationship in teaching service and grace.

Lairde Tegwen is skilled in hair design, multiple fiber arts, herbal remedies, and some basic seamstress work, though mostly to repair the legions of damaged pants after any given Pennsic. They teach and offer tutorials on persona hair designs at Pennsic and other events.
