Persona History:

As written for the Sable Swap:
Elsa was born in Germany to a family of lesser nobility who discarded their honors in sympathy with the Hussite Rebellion (c. 1410 CE). Suddenly dispossessed, Elsa (somehow) met and fell in love with a Milanese (c. 1450 CE) soldier, and married him when he became a Centurion and therefore able to support her studies as an Apprentice.

Born in 15c Germany.
Learned diverse textile arts from friends in my early days in Mooneschadowe (2005).
Apprenticed to a Dane/Saxon Silversmith of the Kudzu (October 2009).
Married a 15c Milanese Centurion (July 2010).
