To escape the spread of The Black Death, Aurri La 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 mark of the brothel. Because of her patrons over the years, she has developed many new hobbies including scribal work, silk painting, and has a blossoming interest in perfumes and cosmetics.
Outside of the SCA, she is Jessie Gagnon. She is new to the SCA as of 2020 and attended her first event, Kingdom Twelfth Night, in January of this 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.
