Persona History:

(Mid 13th Century, Scotland) Ian is the third son of a well to do Noble Scottish family. He has an affinity for the color Green so much so that he came to be called Ian the Green. As a calligraphy scribe I decided that having a church education for my persona was the best and most likely way for him to learn to read and write in the 13th century. However, my persona is not a member of the church.
Not being the heir and neither the spare,
"To the church!" my Da' said and I was sent there.
It was the learning to write that in my head stuck,
The clergy part however was struck!

I call him Mr. The Green. That is not pertinent information, but it is true. One of my family's first events was King's College, and several of our older children attended a calligraphy class that Mr. The Green taught. They were nervous about attending and trying something that looked difficult. Afterwards, they talked about his class for hours, excited and ready to practice at home. He had warmly included them into his class and adapted his instruction so it was relevant to the full spectrum of attendees. His passion and knowledge for his art is impressive.
