Persona History:

Master Pieter is a Dutch Landsknecht. His mother was Dutch and his father came from the German states with William of Orange, where they met and were married.

He is traveled and has been a Seabeggar (Dutch navy in its war with Spain), and wanting to leave the sea he joined up with a company of Landsknecht. It is in their service where he learned his current trade as an executioner.


While I will always love rapier fighting, my main interest at this time is the study and teaching of the executioners arts and sciences. While doing that, I dabble in wood working, smithing, and leather work make demonstration pieces for my classes.

I started in the SCA in 1992 briefly in Atlantia before moving to Ansteorra and settling down.
