Introduction

Grim the Skald joined the SCA in 2001, after resisting for several years. As his nickname implies, he is a Skald, a poet and storyteller. He currently resides in the Barony of Concordia of the Snows. He was elevated to the Order of the Laurel in the first reign of Konrad and Brenwen (July 2008.)

Persona

Grim is a 11th Century Icelander, born in 1035. As many Icelanders do, he has travelled, putting both his poetic skills and his sword at the service of many kings. He has settled down in Concordia of the Snows in the 30th year of his life. He has quickly come to enjoy the life and responsibilities of a court Bard, he has served the Baron of Concordia, three Kings, and three Queens of the East. He has also served Baron Angus Kerr as a herald.

Until his elevation, he was apprenticed to Master Toki Redbeard. He is a part of Toki's household, the Vestfell Farmstead.

He takes pride in the poetry he has written for the people of the East, which at this stage is approaching a decent sized body of work. Should you have a tale of word-fame that should be passed on, let him know, and something may develop. He has been known to do commissions.

In the past, he has served as both the King and Queen's bard of the East. At the Queen's Meadhall in AS47, he has once again been chosen by King Edward II as King's Bard of the East.

He has two apprentices: Mhari Brewbane and Rebekah Wallace.

Alternate Persona

There is a person who distinctly resembles Grim the Skald who dresses in 14th Century garb. He has written a number of 14th Century Alliterative works. This person is named Matthew Grymm. For some reason he responds more readily to his last name than his first.

Matthew is married to Isabel de Bayonne.

Offices & Positions

Poetry

I have written a rather large body of poems in varying Norse styles, as well as a few other miscellaneous works. I will link it here as I add it.
