Raven's first event was at Estrella Park in 1996 with the assistance of Sir William Flanagan. He has found interest in all the activities the SCA does. He decided early on that he would not limit my experiences and have some education on everything. His first interest was in marshal arts and archery. He also enjoys being of service and helping, but his ultimate passion is the arts and sciences. Paint is his medium and he uses it to bring joy to the world.

Raven is part of Clan Celtic Sun, House of the Silvermoon, Knights of St. Michael. He is also a part of a large sewing group called the Elizabethan Sweatshop (est. 1996). They would like everyone to look good.

Raven has an autoimmune disease and is slowly loosing his abilities. His goal is to leave everything more beautiful, happier, and cleaner than he found it.

What's in a Name

Raven picked his name, he was really into researching his Native American heritage. Since that persona was not encouraged, he went to the library to find names that reflected that in a round about way. He originally wanted it to be Raven Hair, but was able to document Raven Mayne and used it since it was close.


He is a early 11th century Norse Irishman farmer living in Dublin.

Heraldry Story

Raven started designing his Heraldry in a group of pun enthusiasts. So it was: Argent, in pale a goute de sang and a tick, on a chief sable decrescent argent. He has since made that his badge. His current device is Argent a semi of ravens volant sable and is in the process of adding: augmentation on an escutcheon in base azure in pale a sun in splendor and an artist's paintbrush fesswise reversed within a bordure Or.
