Persona History:

I was born in the 1560s in Swansea, Wales, and am the son of a merchant and a midwife. I studied alchemy and the sciences when I was young, but took to the sea as a privateer for adventure. After falling for a beautiful French lady, I married and returned to my family's lands.

Interests:

Archery, rapier, metalworking, knotcraft, costuming, period games

Timeline of Activity:

I found the SCA with my brother at the Norman Medieval Faire in 1981. Our first official event was the 3rd (last) Wiesenfeuer Michalmas Missile Tournament. I was mostly here for the camping and party until I started shooting archery in 1985 and then fighting rapier in 1990. I have lived all of my life in Wiesenfeuer except for 7 years in Steppes (1994-2001). I married my wife at Wiesenfeuer Baronial in 1997 after proposing atop the Gulf Wars castle that year. We were the Wiesenfeuer Baron & Baroness from 2006 to 2010.

Elric Dracwin, while helping his brother with a magic trick, once summoned 7 geese! This was the trick with a large chest, and someone goes inside, and they disappear, but when ***** went inside the chest and disappeared, 7 geese appeared in his place! He took these geese to a local pond, where they lived happily ever after.
