I was born in the winter of 1477, on the outskirts Corlionne, Sicily - Right off the 'toe of the boot' as it were. My family has held a modest grove of olive trees and which kept bread in our mouths, but it was the vineyard that gave my family the wealth to be titled and given the city, now known as Corlionne. The Corlionne family vines are world-renowned - why I've even heard that Edward the fourth of England agrees our wines are excellent! My mother, Sophia, died in childbirth, while I myself was still a child. The child was stillborn, one of many, and to my fathers regret, I his only child. Being a forward thinking man, he allowed me to be raised as a son - that is, I was schooled in writing and arithmetic and learned to love the land at his knee - I'm sure this was in hopes that I in turn would teach these to my husband and out children. In the year 1491 a fever swept our village taking my father, and at the tender age of 15, when i should be preparing to wed, I was given control of the family's coffers and fields. I have acquitted the family name well, if I do say so myself. I now hold my own title as Lady and am free to travel the world as I see fit.
My name is Gorawyn Verche Diamwnt O'Daimhin, and all but the last name is Welsh. I'm a 13th century courtesan in the French Court. My mother was Welsh and my father, French. I married an Irish Pirate by the name Diolach O'Daimhin. Who spirited me off to his ship, the Banshee's Cry.
In the SCA I'm a jewelry maker as well as an artist of many mediums. I am currently making circlets for Gleann Ahbann Regalia. I also dance and am a bard. I have an alternate persona that is a Gypsy. Her name is Sylvena Gabriella of the Wailing Caravan.

Morgan of Osprey is the son of a Saxon Lord who owed a life boon to William of Normandy. Asked by his ill and aging father to fulfill the debt to William, Morgan met the Duke of Normandy on the marshy southern shores of Saxon England and followed him into battle on October 14, 1066 on Senlac Hill near the small town of Hastings. Resigning himself to the fact that he was probably facing a losing battle, Morgan fought with honor and valor and was surprised when the Normans took the day. He then followed William on his continuing campaign, culminating in the surrender of London. Since he fulfilled his obligations to the new King, he was one of a small handful of Saxon Lords to retain his lands and title after the Norman invasion.
