- Baron Phillip Reed the Facetious, OP grew up in Lincolnshire, England c. 1200 A.D. Although his family stems from noble Anglo-Saxon lineage, the Norman conquest stripped all claims to his family's lands and titles. After leaving Lincoln, Phillip traveled around England, apprenticing to various healers, and eventually he found himself in Berkshire, England, where he lived the rest of his days in Reading. At events you will most likely find Phillip on the Archery range; if not there, he will be on the List field participating in heavy fighting, or administering first aid.

- Duchess Marion FitzWilliam (OP) is the daughter of a tavern maid on the Isle of Gigha and, unbeknownst to him, a visiting English lord. Marion grew up more than a little rough around the edges until her father found out about her and came to collect her when she was 10. From that point, she was forcibly educated in his castle with his legitimate children, as he had only sons and wanted a daughter to marry off for alliance purposes. That plan didn't work out too well for him, though, as Marion was abducted by Norse raiders while visiting her mother the summer before she was to be married. Since then, Marion has traveled the world with her Viking husband, playing den mom to his pack of unruly squires, and forcing them to pillage and attempt to take over the free world on her behalf.

David enjoys working on projects (always called his "birdhouse"), outdoor cooking and teaching, and enjoying the pleasure of the
company of others. He has been involved in the SCA since 1997 when his seventeen-year-old daughter asked him to take her "camping".
It is all her fault....
