SCA origin story
Benedict was introduced to the SCA by a friend in The Barony of Tir Ysgithr in 1989. He became squired in the mid 90's but was released to follow his lady to the Kingdom of An Tir. Residing in An Tir he sort of fell out of the society with the exception of the occasional armored combat practice and the annual pilgramage to Estrella War. He then traveled to the Kingdom of Ansteorra for another year. In 2017 the two returned to Atenveldt. He now revels in a strange juxtaposition of building new relationships through the archery community yet reuniting with people from decades ago. In a way Benedict is reinventing himself. His dreams are that this new energy will spill over onto the rest of Haus Tagesterne.
Benedict is a 14th century stone mason out of Luzern, Switzerland. Benedict's persona ages thru time exactly 600 years ago as his mundane counterpart does today.
Interests & activities
Benedict is a yeoman, aspiring to be Forester in open bow and period hand bow. He is honored to be accepted as a Companion of the Black Pheon.
