Aurri le Borgne - Pronouns: She/They
To escape the spread of The Black Death, Aurri le Borgne fled with her parents at a young age from Auvergne to Dauphiné in the Southeast of France in hopes of finding work away from the plague so they could continue to raise their family. Dauphiné was prosperous in that they were successful to find a forge for her father to work with while her mother sold simple breads from the home. Tragically Aurri lost her mother and future sibling during complications in childbirth a few years later. Struggling to stay a float with the emotional trauma of losing his wife, Aurri's father sold her to a brother at the age of 14 and disappeared, assuming to try and find solace elsewhere.
To this day, Aurri continues her mother's baking of simple breads and brings in extra coin for her efforts while passing it down to the young girls who become part of the brothel. Because of her patrons over the years, she has developed many new hobbies including coordinating events, silk painting, and has a blossoming interest in perfumes and cosmetics.
Outside of the SCA, she is Jessie Gagnon. She joined the SCA in 2020 and attended her first event, Kingdom Twelfth Night, in January of that year. While 14th Century French is her primary persona, she will be dabbling in other years and destinations as a courtesan including 16th Century Florentine Italian and 9th/10th Century Egyptian.
She is also often eager to assist anyone when it comes to streaming or social media, as she comes with years of experience. Her first big stream will be Highland Foorde's court during Highland River Melees, in which she will create all assets used on screen and be recording, setting up, and directing court.

In Case of Peerage (ICOP)
Come with a warrant.
No seriously, please give me some kind of advance warning. My brain gets excitement and anxiety confused all the time so I will need some time to process what is about to happen if I am to truly remember and enjoy it! You don't have to tell me it is for peerage, you can just say I'm needed for an award. I just want to save myself from being a blubbering fool.
Right now, I'm not ready for peerage. I'm still very new and hardly know anyone in the SCA. When I am ready, a link will appear here taking you to my ICOP!
