Sayyida Um Ishaq Sara bint Abu Zakaryia (Say-yid-ah Oom Eas-hack Sarah bin-t Ab-boo Zack-a-ree-ya)


AoA in February of 2015 at Nottinghill Coile Baronial Birthday in Atlantia, under the name Tereza Quinones de Toledo


I chose a name based on my modern person - The Kunya "Um Ishaq" could be applied to any woman with the first name of Sara, as the most famous Sara is Isaac's mother. My modern father's name doesn't Arabize well, but my brother is Zachary and biblical, so the rest of my name means daughter of Zachary's father.

I chose a name that could be either Christian or Islamic in origin. I like to think of myself as a woman in Islamic Spain, somewhere between 1000 and 1400. My Arabic women's garb is mostly based on images from The Story of Bayad and Riyad, which is a rare surviving Andalusian novel from the 13th century. My Christian women's garb is mostly based on King Alfonso X's Book of Games, from the 1200s.

When I fight, my fighting armor is based on Persian miniatures of the Battle of Camels, which took place on the Arab peninsula in the late 600s. It is based on masculine dress.
