Persona History:

I was born in 805 in Birka. I am unaware of who my family are or were; I grew up on the docks, earning money and food facilitating trade agreements with the locals and the ships that came in. Eventually worked at a local inn, cooking and cleaning untill I chose to find adventure in Ansteorra where I found chosen family.


  • I have fought heavy and am learning the fine art of the silver blade of Rapier; I carry within my chest the Heart of a Warrior regardless of the age in my eyes.
  • I love Heraldry and many other arts, but my greatest interest and joy comes from service to my Barony and my Kingdom.
