Persona History:

Branislava was born in 1245 on the outskirts of the city of Pskov, Russia. She spent her youth roaming the forest and gathering mushrooms, herbs, bones, and other curiosities. Her father, Kiril, is a local hunter and craftsman. He served in the local militia who fought along side Alexander Nevsky in the battle against the Teutonic Knights in 1241. Her mother, Vasara, is of Estonian descent and is known locally for her singing voice, her preserves, and her embroidery. Her brother, Vasili, took vows and serves in the scriptorum at the Mirozhsky Monastery. She enjoys cooking, creating pictures and fancy letters, relaxing with her friends, and observing the doings of fancy and important people in town.
