Runa is a first generation SCA Member whose primary focus is Bardic, Watch, and Shenanigans. She is the first Apprentice of Viscountess Wander Riordan, OL.

Runa is rarely seen without her "son" (her dog), Master Chief.

She is a member of the Household Hrafnheim and the Southern Scriptorium.

Runa joined the SCA via the College of Saint Felix and currently resides in the Barony of Tir Ysgithr.

Prior Names, Aliases, or AKAs: Bard Coyote, Runa Nightryder, Runa Star-Sung, Runa of St. Felix


Runa plays an 8th century Viking Völva and skald from the Norway region. Much like the ravens of her household's heraldry, she adores all things that glitter and shine, so treasure chains are a must as well as massive drinking horns.
