Lady Dyrfinna Drengsdottir is an active member of the Thrown Weapons and Arts & Sciences communities. She is particularly fond of gardening, herbalism and weaving.

Lady Dyrfinna Drengsdottir is an iron age Finnish lady from the Kainuu (Kvenland) region of what is now known as Finland. Her father Drengr was a trader who traveled the borders and coasts, often doing business with Vikings. It was in this way that she met her husband, Lord Brynjólfr Brandsson, who won her father’s favor with a keen deal, and a good tussle with the family house bear.
