Lady Cordeilla Sharpe attended two Pennsic Wars (36 and 38) as a non-member and eventually became active in the SCA in 2014 (5 years later!) while living in the Barony of Axemoor (New Orleans). She relocated to the Shire of Owlsherst (York County, PA) in June of 2018.
Lady Cordeilla is married to Lord Dirk Sharpe, who rarely makes it to events due to his work schedule.
Pronunciation: kɔrd.i.ˈliə ʃɑrp / cor-DEE-LEE-ah SHARP
No specific persona. The garb closet is very eclectic and broad, both in geography and in time period. "Roman in the summer, Viking in the winter"
Cordeilla is learning to speak French and appreciates conversational practice opportunities. Her Duolingo username is "cordelya".

Lady Cordeilla prefers to not be given awards at all. If you absolutely must, a private, drive-by presentation is preferred. She does not attend court because previous groups could not manage to refrain from calling on her, despite repeated requests.
Not interested in peerage or shiny hats, and appreciates not being hassled about it.
