Livia Petralia first joined the SCA through the Shire of Hammerhold in the Kingdom of Meridies (now Gleann Abhann) in the 1998-99 school year. After a few more years inactive, Livia became active in the Bailiwick of Ivyeinrust in 2002.
A dilettante and a hedonist, Livia's primary pursuits are bookbinding and cooking. She strongly believes that the SCA is a hobby to be enjoyed with no reason for anyone to ever be told that they aren't good enough at what they do to play this game.
