Persona History:

Born in the 11th century In Herefordshire. As he entered his second decade he left the Marches to find the mythical lands of Ansteorra. This is where he met “the girl next door” - Myfanwy ferch Eifion - and was directly convinced that they would be together forever as Welsh women are infamous for.

HE Myfanwy Ferch Eifion and HE Phelim Gervase were the first “royals” I met in the SCA. It was during Candlemas of 2011. I was living in San Angelo during the time and part of the Santa Angela Renaissance Guild. A group of us went down to visit friends who were part of the SCA. I recall enjoying feast and dancing the night away. During court when they asked for newcomers one of my friends ushered me forth. Myfanwy and Phelim gave me a ring as a token of welcome that I still have to this day. Ever since I have always given them a hug and enjoy dancing with them every chance I get.
