Formerly known as Mikael McCue.
My first event was a small 12th night event held in Silver Rylle in January 1993. In July of that year, I attended the Caer Adamant business meeting and then attended Pennsic XXII the following month.
I initially went by Kyle until I learned it was not a period name, oops. I then registered the Irish name Mikael McCue (pronounced like mi-kyle mick-queue), and people still called me Kyle which I now spelled as Kael.
Years later, I realized that I didn't do anything Irish nor did I dress in an Irish style, so I changed my name to the Norse Mikael melrakki (pronounced like mi-kale mel-rocky).
You may still hear me get called by all of these names.
I had remained an active member of Caer Adamant until the summer of 2019 at which time I moved north into the Barony of Bhakail.
My persona is kind of loosely based on a craftsperson in a post-Christian influenced Norse land. This is mostly based on my name and interests, the majority of which (sprang, tablet weaving, axe throwing) can all be traced back to this region and time period.

I am willing to accept AoA or Grant level awards as well as non-armigerous awards during Aethereal Courts. I would also accept a Writ for Peerage during one, but not the Peerage itself.
