Born in 699 in Cherson at the tip of the Crimean Peninsula on the Black Sea (part of Byzantine Taurica), her mother died at her birth and her father, a scribe for the Khazar Tudun, did his best to raise his only child.  He taught her to read and write, as well as arithmatic.  Her name was chosen in reverence for Empress Theodora who did much to see to the rights of women while she reigned, her nickname is a reference to her mother, Annah.

When Theodora was 13 years old her father got sick.  A slow, mysterious illness that didn't seem to have a cure. Eventually, knowing that he did not have much time left, her father arranged a marriage for her to the only son of a wealthy family with extensive trade routesHe was their only child, and was only 5 years older than Theodora.  After her father's death, her life changed greatly - she traveled as much as she could with the family's caravans, avoiding her drunkard husband and learning the business.  With her connections to the Khazar Tudun, her sharp mind and education, she was soon increasing the business's profits and the more her in-laws seemed to adore her, the more her husband seemed to despise her.  Fortunately Justinian I and Theodora had made it possible for women to both divorce their husbands and own property, and so this is what she did - earning both half of the trade caravan business and her freedom to live as a wealthy woman on her own.

Introduction

I am Baroness Theodora Bryennissa called Treannah (formerly known as Treannah Theodora Brennanoif), a herald, wordsmith, event steward, and administrator from the Barony of Settmour Swamp. My pronouns are she/her.

Persona

Born in 699 in Cherson at the tip of the Crimean Peninsula on the Black Sea (part of Byzantine Taurica), her mother died at her birth and her father, a scribe for the Khazar Tudun, did his best to raise his only child. He taught her to read and write, as well as arithmatic. Her name was chosen in reverence for Empress Theodora who did much to see to the rights of women while she reigned, her nickname is a reference to her mother, Annah.

When Theodora was 13 years old her father got sick. A slow, mysterious illness that didn't seem to have a cure. Eventually, knowing that he did not have much time left, her father arranged a marriage for her to the only son of a wealthy family with extensive trade routes. He was their only child, and was only 5 years older than Theodora. After her father's death, her life changed greatly - she traveled as much as she could with the family's caravans, avoiding her drunkard husband and learning the business. With her connections to the Khazar Tudun, her sharp mind and education, she was soon increasing the business's profits and the more her in-laws seemed to adore her, the more her husband seemed to despise her. Fortunately Justinian I and Theodora had made it possible for women to both divorce their husbands and own property, and so this is what she did - earning both half of the trade caravan business and her freedom to live as a wealthy woman on her own.

These days, she owns a home in Cherson, but can also frequently be found traveling with her caravan along the far east trade routes. She can sometimes be found in the company of Baron Wulfgaar Silfrahaar
