Persona

Alexander Æthelwulf is a 15th Century Englishman. Born from a line of Vikings who invaded and stayed in England, Alexander was the eldest son of Daniel Æthelwulf and Kathryn of Hornechurch. A loyal servant to Henry V, Alexander fell from grace of both church and state after his outspoken remarks regarding the suspicious death of King Henry and his sons. Vowing to pursue truth rather than fame or fortune, the Horsemen of Judgment Keep were forged from that anger of injustice waged upon his former King.

Alexander Hostilius Caidis (Latin for "of Caid") is a 1st century Roman. Although not of native birth, Alexander was taken from his homeland of Sparta and brought to Rome, as was the custom, to be trained in the arts of war by the powerful Roman War Machine. He became a Roman citizen and returned to his homeland where he serves as a liaison between the two cultures.

Also known as Alexander Æthelwulfe sunu and formerly known as Alexander Æthelwulf

Garb Created

  • Early 14th Century English Garb - These items are primarily based on the documentation and writings of James Lavar. As these were made early in my SCA career and money was not as accessible, more attention was paid to design and less to material and construction.
