Lorcan was born sometime in the late 12th century Drogheda, in what was to become the Pale of Ireland. As he was a third son the family decided that he would enter the church as a profession. While the young Lorcan had scholastic talents he had more of an interest in barding than priesting. As the Norman troops approached his home village during the invasion there was a traveling troop of minstrels performing a Mysterie for one of the church festivals. In the confusion of the attack, Lorcan ran off with the company. Eventually they made their way to England. Over the years Lorcan rose to become the troops "captain."

The company roamed the Angevian empire performing as needed using a pageant wagon as a stage. While the standard fare of the company was religious passion mysterie, it has run afoul of local authorities from time to time because of "special productions" satirizing both them and corruption in the church. It was after one such production that Lorcan deemed it appropriate to leave the company and go on crusade.

It was while on crusade that he came to the attention of the King. At first the services were small. Arranging feasts, acting as liaison to the Royal Cousins. Then as an Ambassador and Exchequer to part of the Kingdom. These things resulted in his being awarded arms of "Per Fess Embattled, Argent and Azure, A Dragon’s Head Couped Vert and A Book Argent." (See coronet on home page.)

His world changed forever one night while passing through a small Middle Eastern village. While dining he became entranced with a dancer named Lady Scheherazde. She was also well known to Their Majesties for her many good works and they soon became good friends . Of a sudden the Crown needed the services of trusted servants in a far off and exotic land known as Bhakail and turned to them both. So it was, that on a sweltering day in August, did the third son of a minor Irish noble suddenly find himself Baron of Bhakail.

Twenty seasons passed and the barony prospered; the harvests were plentiful and the populace grew. Bhakail flourished in harmony with its neighbors and Lorcan along with it. But over time Lorcan became restless for something was missing. Then on a spring day there appeared members of his old theater company who argued for his return to the stage. And this he realized was what was lacking.

Late into many nights he planned a new future and finally, with the King's permission, he bid farewell and returned to the road. There you will find him mounting masquerades medieval where the players tell of great deeds. Seek them out in your travels! The fare, both old and new, will make you think, laugh and cry, but all will entertain.
