Maestro Lot RamirezRRE first found the SCA in Northshield in 1996 (back when it was just a Principality, now a Kingdom), where he took up the art of the sword and has never put it down. He is the Captain of the White Star, a ship and a nautical household that is a branch of the di Cellini households (a collection of households that now span three or more kingdoms). Master Lot was made a Companion of the Order of the White Scarf of Caid in A.S. 39 (2005), by Direk IV and Chamayn and a Master of the Laurel in A.S. 49 (2015), by Mansur II and Eilidh II for Historical Combat Research and Instruction. In A.S. 50 (2015) he was made a Master of Defense by Athanaric and Sigriðr.

Maestro Lot Ramirez is a Protegé to Master Gulliver Blackrune as well as a fencing student of Maestro Giacomo Cavalli da Treviso. He is the Dean of the 'Vineyard of Swords' School of Fence, where his students come to learn and study under his tutelage.


During his Laureling Ceremony, Lot revealed to their Majesties his true identity, Juceff ben Miguel, a secret Jew from Toledo. He had hidden under the assumed identity of Lot Ramirez for over 20 years. Their Majesties forgave Lot for his deception and promised their protection.

Juceff "Lot" Ramirez has additional persona stories on the White Star website
