|Award & Office Badges|
Esmeria's first SCA event was in October 2013, Shire Wars III. She shot her first bow, went to her first classes, met much of the cook's guild and was entranced by the raw enthusiasm for do-it-yourself crafting in the areas of brewing, garb, and camping gear.
If you met Esmeria before 2016 she was called Emerald Unudottir (AoA is under this name), but eventually changed her mind and was officially named Esmeria De Rus in summer of 2016, along with getting her device and badge approved.
Member of the unofficial Owlsherst Taster's Guild (often observed following the Owlsherst Cook's guild into pre-cooks). Budding member of the Narrowwork Guild, recently renamed to the Worshipful Company of Narrowworkers.
Over the years Esmeria has settled into helping at events usually at the event precook's, crafts for event decorations, teaching a few classes and recently organizing fundraising activities and/or A&S activities at local events.
When she isn't helping at events shes likely hand-sewing garb, looking for new things to learn especially related to fiber arts in all forms, or researching a new A&S project to improve her friends or family's garb.
(lack of) Persona
Esmeria does not have a defined persona, this name was selected for personal reasons and does not indicate a late spanish persona as the name's origins suggest.
Esmeria does not adhere to a specific timeframe or location, she wears garb from many areas. She is interested in the histories, arts, decor, and garb of all viking areas/times, early period Mongolian, early period Korean, earlier period Ottoman and earlier period Persian. She is most likely seen wearing some type of viking garb as this is the area she has done the most research.
