THL Edith of Arbroath (formerly Edith of York, formerly Ædythe of Warwick) has been in the SCA since Angels Melee Tourney 1990 on 01/27/1990. Her personae was given as hostage to the Earl of Warwick, cementing a pact with her sire's clan. She was taught spinning, weaving and embroidery. Her skills increased and she was often commissioned to design and sew garb. Having pestered her English host, Edith was taught to read and write. When the monk-scribe fell ill, she took over his duties, designing and calligraphing numerous scrolls much to the delight of her host-captor.

At length, her sire (Dauid Maelchon) secured her release from Warwick but she was held at York because of the "Troubles" betwixt Stephen and the Empress Matilda. Her kindred staunchly supported David I and the Earl of Gloucester. Whilst at York, she took up arms, delighting in sword/shield, mace and glave and was included in the Brotherhood of the Blade, much to her lady-mother's dismay.

Edith was sequestered, for some years, caring for her beloved sire. After his peaceful death, she returned to Caid.

Altavia Family Tree (2018)

Painting of Altavia's family tree for Altavia's display at Caid 40th Year celebration. The back of the scroll has room for signatures of the Barons and Baronesses of Altavia. The framed painting was given to the current B&B Niko & Briana to be passed down to each new B&B.

Police Officer Scrolls (2018)

I was honoured to be asked to create the Royal Recognition of Excellence scrolls for the police officers who saved Sir Charles of Dublin from his burning home.

At Altavia's Council meeting, I was tasked to make each scroll individual but have all four be one set. The new Royal Canopy was the inspiration for the banner held by different retainers [I moved each from one position to another on the four scrolls so they'd all be alike but not the same.] A newspaper article had the Officers pictures and I used them to balance across from Caid's Populace badge so each scroll would be unique. The guidance and encouragement from Ariana verch Gwenllian [Principal Herald] Astrid skaphaena [Scribe Armarius] & Valeria Cabrielli [Court Scribe] was greatly appreciated along with other Good Gentles who helped, they deserve Thank Yous, too.

I remain In Service THL Edith of Arbroath
