About Ivan Shield Bane

Background

Ivan Shieldbane is an Engle Saxon adventurer from the Migration Era. Ivan can be found in the tournament Eric or on the war field if there is a contest of skill he enjoys watching. Ivan really enjoys a good story and the song and passion performers bring to the bardic circle. Ivan enjoys earth tones and dark colors, but Ivan doesn’t give such much thought.

Food and Drink Preferences

He is an enjoyer of foods from all over the world and has been known to imbibe alcohol (but he’s cut it back in recent days). Ivan prefers Gatorade, iced tea, and of course, water.

About Mina de filia Philipe

Background

Mina de filia Philipe’s persona is that of a 14th century Navarrian woman. She loves archery, arts, and evenings around the campfire. Mina can often be found watching tournament fighting, working gate, watching her children’s activities, or socializing with… well, pretty much anyone. Her greatest joy in the SCA is the people. The bonds of friendship and family forged with those near and far are what brings the Dream to life for her.
Her favorite colors are blue, teal, and silver.

Food and Drink Preferences

Mina will try most any foods. She is particularly fond of pasta, bread, and tacos! She likes most all fruits and fresh vegetables, though strawberries are her favorite. She prefers sweet over salty. She does not like raw onions, fish, stinky cheese, or cooked broccoli. Mina does not drink alcohol. She prefers sweetened tea (hot or iced), Pepsi, and fruit punch Gatorade.
