I am Lady Thurayyā bint Sitt al-Sirr- also known as Melmyra (Mel-meera), Mel, or Myra (she/her) - I spent my early time in the SCA attending only a few events socially and most of that time was learning and performing as a bellydancer. I have recently started to become more involved in thrown weapons and archery. I enjoy fiber arts, trying my hand at calligraphy and illumination, sewing, and have been researching and preparing to build a vardo.

Meaning of Thurayyā bint Sitt al-Sirr- is Pleaides, daughter of lady of secrets


Persian persona with a dash of middle eastern flair. On occasion, there will be some norse viking garb thrown in.
