Introduction

(I have moved to the Kingdom of the Outlands as of July 2021 - please bear with me as this page may not be entirely up to date. I update it when I can but the latest info is more likely to be at my personal website's about page, or my entry on the Outlands OP, known as Wimble.)

I was previously active from spring 2017 to summer 2021 in the Crown Province of Østgarðr. I enjoy rapier fencing and regularly attend local practice where I am. I am authorized in the Outlands in single sword, all secondary objects, spear, and cut and thrust for both 1 and 2 handed. I am also a Rapier Field Marshal in the Outlands for both standard heavy rapier and cut and thrust, where we distinguish between field and authorizing marshals. Another thing I am enthusiastic about is kumihimo, historic Japanese silk cord braiding.

Please note, my pronouns are they/them/theirs, and I prefer gender-neutral forms of address (Noble is currently my preferred title, now that I have an AoA).

(You may also have met me in Æthelmearc/Thescorre circa 2012, when I was in my freshman year of college, or in the former Shire of Frosted Hills, as a child.)

In Case of Court

I'd prefer advance notice if I am to appear in Court, though it's not strictly required. My partner Lady Aífe an tSneachta can be contacted if you don't want to contact me directly, and/or my doña, Doña Mizuno Kiku Ibara.

Persona

A caveat: Very much still in progress, and not currently focusing deeply on this. My current persona is later Roman (around the fall of Rome). I often wear Roman garb due to the ease of construction - I am almost always wearing something either bright green or Roman. I am also curious about a just slightly later time period in southern Italian city-states, e.g. Amalfi, but I've found it much harder to find information about pre-Renaissance city-states in what is now Italy, and much easier to find Roman inspiration :)

Projects & Publications

  • I was a founder of the Østgarðr Native Land working group, which aims to elevate non-western-European cultures by acknowledging the Native cultures which lived in our area before the 17th century.
