Brunissende Dragonette started to participate in the SCA after coming across the table of the local chapter at the University of Pennsylvania during the Winter of 2002 and became the Ivy Pursuivant not long after that. She has left that office only in 2012 but is still highly involved in heraldry in Kingdom and at Society level. She is also very interested in various aspects of Arts & Sciences.

Chrestienne la pescheresse is an alternate name used mainly for A&S-related projects (and always to sign scrolls). She has been active as scribe for the Kingdom and the Barony of Bhakail since 2006.

Brunissende Dragonette is a 15th century Parisian woman. She is mostly busy with day to day life and making sure that her house runs smoothly. From a family of artisans, she is used to work and can make herself most of what she needs.

Chrestienne la pescheresse entered the Sisterhood of Saint Walburga after having lived a quite full and exciting life in the world. She is now living a peaceful one and uses what she learned (and keeps learning) to produce manuscripts to be distributed to award recipients. She is also interested in the research of heraldic topics
