Persona History:

I am a Norse woman living in the mid-11th century. I am married to a Scotsman, Master Connall MacNaghten. I travel extensively on my family's ships and trading ventures, and have set foot in lands as far away as Miklegard, Rus, Silesia, Scythia, the Saxon lands, and the Celtic isles.
