Tanaka Raiko, knight of the East (technically the 110th member of the Order in the East). Spends most of his SCA time teaching people about fighting and assisting people with "stuff". Resides in Rusted Woodlands in the Southern Region. Member of the 404.


I fancy my persona to be a vagabond knight, but truth be told I'm deeply entrenched in the East Kingdom and my home Shire of Rusted Woodlands. In my halcyon days I was always found at the list field, or in melees with brief visits to the Archery Range (I eventually attained a Master Bowman [1] status) and the Fencing List. It's all good.

The differences between my Modern Personality and my SCA persona are nil, but you'd never know that to meet me.
