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.

Lisa Czudnochowsky is a guidance counsellor in Toronto, Canada at an international baccalaureate high school. She has taught in a wide variety of departments and schools over her twenty year teaching career, but has primarily spent her time in Library, English, and Communication Technology at the junior high and high school levels. Before becoming a teacher, Lisa worked in commercial production for a major household goods manufacturer as well as in mobile production for live news broadcasts for a Toronto television station. Lisa loves to read and travel in her spare time, has a not-so-secret love of all things Disney, and adores completely spoiling her many nieces and nephews behind their parents' backs.

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.
