Baroness Isobel Bickerstaff

Known as Libby, Isobel first joined the SCA in 2006 and has been an active member ever since. She lives in the Canton of Distant Shore, within the Barony of Ruantallan.

She is the Protege of Duchess Avelina Keyes.

Her love of travel has taken her far from her home in Ruantallan and allowed her to see other Kingdoms. She's been to Double Wars and Medieval Week in Visby in the Kingdom of Drachenwald (Sweden to be exact) and was lucky enough to attend the Drachenwald 20th Anniversary event in Germany.

Closer to home she's attends Pennsic and GNE fairly regularly and loves to spend her money at Birka.

Although you wouldn't know it by her name, Libby gravitated towards a Norse persona in 2010 and has worked hard at developing a style that reflects that area of interest. Regular travel to Drachenwald (primarily to the north countries) has fed this and she hopes to continue exploring her persona.
