Persona History:

Born 1347 in Bavaria to a traveling merchant and his wife, Kassandra's father and siblings died of plague when she was an infant. Her mother, seeking stability and a new life, took on her husbands identity, and using his influence, brought Kassandra to northern Italy where their wealth grew as the trade markets did. Keeping her mother's secret, Kassandra grew up learning how to read, write, calculate, negotiate, and formulate in all the ways her mother could teacher her, just as her father had taught his wife. Being exposed to many things in markets all over the lands, Kassandra was able to explore many interests and arts along the way. Now all grown up, with a child of her own, Kassandra seeks to continue her family's legacy, raising her son as she was raised, in the market. Though she dabbles in jewelry from time to time, she specializes in bringing soap and hygiene to the masses. It was the plague that killed most of her family and she believes it is through cleanliness that one can protect themselves. Kassandra cares deeply for the friends and family she has cultivated in travels and does everything she can to help and protect them, even if it means holding them down to scrub their faces.

While Kassandra has lived in Bryn Gwlad during her tenure in the SCA, she has traveled to many baronies and shires in the Kingdom, as well as venturing across borders to Gleann Abhann and Atlantia from time to time.


Kassandra's interest have varied over the years. Sewing, calligraphy, illumination, leather working, book binding, ink making, cooking, bone carving, embroidery, silk banner painting, wood working, various fiber arts (lucet, nalbinding, spinning, carding, weaving), cheese making, etc. Her love truly lies in jewelry making, brewing, soap making, and service.

Timeline of Activity:

I joined the SCA in November of 2010. A coworker of mine knew I played World of Warcraft and went to RenFaire and suggested this as an alternative. I reached out to my local Hospitaler who, at the time, was Diane de Mallet, and went to a couple of Fighter Practices/Populace in the Park and a few weeks later went to War of the Rams. Of course, I was hooked and dove in with both feet, becoming extremely active very fast. Anytime I saw something that needed doing, I was one of the first to be there to do it. Since having my son in 2016, I have had to step back from service a bit, but have made up for it in teaching and doing more arts.
