Duchess Faizah "The Outlaw" al-Zarqa prefers the alternative transliteration "Faizeh al-Zarqa." She and her husband, Sir Andrew Baird, have been in the SCA since 2000. She is the Lady of the household Kabila al-Raqs B’Saif, and it is her goal to turn everyone to the Sparkly Side and become Central Asian. She derives a great amount of joy out of learning period styles of Islamic and Central Asian dance, and sharing her knowledge with others. She is apprenticed to Mistress Jadi Fatima al-Ishfahani al-Samarkandiyya.

ACTIVE WARRANT: The Outlaw Faizeh has a current warrant issued by His Royal Majesty Alexander II for the crimes of malicious mischief against the Crown. Any information on The Faizah are ordered to make mention to the Crown or the Arcani on her last or possible future whereabouts.

Persona

Faizeh is a 16th Century Safavid Persian dancer. However, she has an uncanny ability to travel through time and space and sometimes finds herself appearing as a Mughal Indian, an Ottoman, or a Mongol.
