Registered name: Domina Nemania filia Hweli (as an educated Welshwoman of the time I would always use Latin, in common tongue I am Lady Nyfain merch Coel,Order of the Silver Brooch.My motto is Si illic est avcaarcha, quae est extra illum, in welsh Os oes blwch, mae hi y tu allan iddi. So that all know it: "If there is a box, she is outside of it."


Nyfain is of the Welsh maritime mountains, in the early 600's. She is the daughter of Coel, one of the Welsh Barons of Arthur Pendragon's court.She was given in marriage to a Southern British Lord in the time before the fall of Camlan, but after the upheaval, they retired to separate estates and have since had little to do with one another in the way of such "arrangements".She tends to her demosene lands with great success as a femme sole, an option enjoyed by Welshwomen, that would not be available to their British sisters.She has made trading alliances with the raiding Northmen, rather than fall prey to them, has traveled to their courts and trading centers and enjoys wearing the dress of the so called Vikings. For additional martial protection of her lands she has sought service with the mighty CDIV. Such unusual prosperity has given Nyfain a good deal of time to pursue her interests in sport, dance, letters, needlework and the arts of the scribe. She has not forgotten the glory of Arthur's court and is dedicated to preserving the Tales of the Once and Future King.
