Persona History:

Silvana Corwin resides in 14th century England. She is the daughter of wealthy merchants and through them was able to receive an education appropriate for a young Lady, namely sewing and embroidery, but also she learned to read and write. She married earlier in life and bore her first husband a daughter, Aila. Sadly, her first husband caught ill and eventually succumbed to his illness. Later, she met her current husband, Absolon of Hereford, just before he became a squire to Sir Louis le Blaireau. Soon they were married and within two years of their marriage they welcomed their son, Maximilian. Her new husband dotes on his wife and spares no expense on her and gives her strong encouragement to continue her pursuit of the arts. Through his support she has been able to become an accomplished scribe, illuminating and using calligraphy to better improve the world around her.

My shout out goes to Absalon of Hereford and his wife Silvana. Ever since I got to Elfsea, these individuals have been a steadfast service to the local groups as well as the kingdom. They open their house to new players and veterans alike for scribal nights (most of their time is spent teaching and helping) and a couple times a year they host socials to help bring members together. All of this whilst holding many offices over the years. Despite any hardships and even pregnancy they have been bastions of stability for the local groups and always serve and provide with a smile on their faces. Thank you for all you do Silvana and Absalon.

Silvana tried to lure me from the 11th to the 14th century. "Too many buttons," I proclaimed.
