|Awards & Offices|
I am Tiarna (Lord) Mael Eoin mac Echuid, originally from the Canton of Whyt Whey in the Crown Province of Ostgardr, now residing in the Canton of Black Icorndall (the Canton of the Valley of the Black Squirrel) in the Barony of Bhakail.
I joined the SCA to learn to brew and cook in a medieval manner and to learn the ins and outs of heraldry. Instead, I quickly found myself fighting heavy list, dancing and generally helping out wherever needed, often hanging out in kitchens at events or holding positions in local groups. I've come to realize that I prefer doing what I can to help others enjoy the SCA; their happiness is my happiness, if it's ultimately successful.
I serve as the head retainer for Their Excellencies of Bhakail, Baron Nissim aven Darmon and Baroness Sabine de Kerbriant.
I am a protege and apprentice of Maitre Alexandre Lerot, Baron of Avigne.
Mael Eoin is a 12th Century Crusader (specifically 1190s) originally from Ireland but to be found anywhere between there and the Outremer. He is a Knight Hospitaller, one of the military brothers of a Holy Order originally formed to protect and provide hospitality to pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land.
