Úlfr Hofhórr has played in the SCA since like, 1987 or something.
Úlfr was cheap mercenary scum until he moved to Mountain Freehold in 1995. He Squired & Apprenticed to Master Tearloch the Profane around 2001, and proudly fights for the Northern Army.
Úlfr was a Viking but went back in time, to the Fall of Rome. ;) Úlf held a farm north of Mare Suebicum and yet heard of the far distant wonders of The Empire. For many years, Úlf served as a mercenary, under the Markland banner, fighting at Pennzack for beer, baubles and bellydancers. Eventually he came to serve as a Northern auxiliary to the Empire of Rome. As honorable punishment for sympathies to the upstart Alaric, he submitted his freedom and entered into the gladiatorial games. When possible, during the off season, Úlf travels home and might look and dress in the Northern fashion. During the time of the Summer Games, Úlf returns to Rome, where he is called The Thulian Gladiator; Úlf, of La Familia Gladiatoria. Úlf enjoys metalworking as well as playing music, song and storycraft. He may or may not have Rome's best interests at heart. ;)

La Familia Gladiatoria
It really doesn't have to be a surprise. There's probably no S.O. to go through anyway. Try Familia if you insist on a surprise. Oh, and I'd love a rudis, should, Gods forbid, I ever earn my freedom from The Games with a white baldric and earn the title of rudiarius. ;)
