(AKA Sajah bint-Habushun ibn-Ishandiyar al-Hajjaji)

Bubba Blackhammer
Resides: Barony of Windmasters' Hill, Atlantia
Status: Active
Awards: Order of Precedence Entry
Registered Arms


I am a citizen of Atlantia, from the Barony of Windmasters' Hill. I am an MoL and trainer of MoLs. I am a scribe and teacher of scribes. I am a proud member of House Blackhammer and, by extension, the Moose Lodge as well as the Free Company of the Banner of the Elephant. I am a gun captain and stand proudly as a gunner on the line at Pennsic. I am the Woman Who Makes Paints. I am Gunpowder & Gold.


Sajah's story is sweeping, a Bedouin brought up in the Byzantine Negev and then war bride of the First Crusader hedge soldier now knight, Sir Jared the Bear who made his fortune and settled in the Holy Land.

Bubba is just Bubba. The name is a reflection of merging my original story with a new household identity: I wanted to be named Blackhammer, as is my peer and his household. Bubba is a name my husband always wanted a woman to choose and is a right and proper female Viking name so perfect for a Varangian living in Byzantium. Beyond that Bubba has no organized persona.
