Baroness of BhakailMinister of Arts and ScienceExchequerSeneschalMember of the Tadcaster Militia


I began my SCA career in 2006 in Bhakail, in the incipient Canton of Black Icorndall, although it wasn't called that at the time. I started doing music, and going to a few events. I went to my first Pennsic that same year, camped with Bhakail, and fell in love. From that point on, I became more and more involved, going to demos and doing what I could to get the Canton out of incipiency, and it was shortly before we became a full Canton that I held my first office as MoAS.

In 2013 I stood up as the Baroness of Bhakail, and it has been an amazing ride. The good folks of Bhakail are the most talented, generous, intelligent and enthusiastic group of people I could image working with, and I am grateful everyday to get to know so many of them.
