Introduction

Aquilina was first introduced to the SCA in AS XVI by her current Lord Yeh-Liu Targai, whom in those days was known as Etienne de Montfort, a fencer of some reknown. Mundane life conspired to separate them. After years of scouring the world for someone exactly like Yeh-Liu Targai (six of which were spent on active duty in the US Air Force), she found him again at an fencing practice in AS XXXI. They were married in AS XXXVII; almost 21 years to the day after they parted ways.

Persona

Aquilina of the Sea Cliffs is a retired Decurion of mixed Germanic/Celtic/Lombard ancestry, originally from Noricum (Austria). She served under Imperator Diocletian in the Equites Dalmatae Sagittorum. Stationed with the Roman Auxilia at Hadrian's Wall, she served a full and faithful tour of duty before settling near Pons Aelius (Newcastle-Upon-Tyne) to run an inn. Aquilina is tolerated by the locals more than the average Roman soldier would be due to her red hair, but is more famed for her brewing. Not easy to do in the land of the Picts, but she matches with her strange honey-mead beverage the best heather ale the Cumbrians have to offer.
