Introduction

I'm Caterina di Paulo, my pronouns are she/her, also known as Puffin (or occasionally War Puffin), squired to Duke Christoph Krieger and part of House Honey Badger. I have a lot of interests and do a lot of things. I started with scribal - Calligraphy and Illumination are my jam, but don't ask me to make pigments. That's for people other than me. I know how it's done, I just hate it. I love bardic, I love to weave, and I'm learning more about that - I'm probably interested in anything you're interested in, if only to listen to people's enthusiasm. I'm an Armored Fighter as well, and that's where most of my focus and attention goes, but I also like to multitask. I'm also really into heralding Court, and that's a lot of fun for me. The thing that means the most to me is inclusivity - I love it when we're all having fun, and even if your fun isn't my fun that's really great - as long as everyone's having a good time and no one's getting hurt. Except for the occasional shot to an unarmored area, which happens from time to time after all, but purely accidental. If you want to come talk to me, come talk to me! I like meeting new people and I like knowing as many in my Kingdom and out as I can. Nothing is pie except pie - the more people there are to have fun together, the more fun can be had!

Persona

So technically, Caterina di Paulo is a late 15th century Venetian woman who is the daughter of a merchant and married to a member of the Varangian Guard (how scandalous!). In reality, you're as apt to find me in Celtic garb as anything, and I'm still trying to find what really fascinates me about history. So far I've managed to enjoy Celtic mythology and history, anything about warrior women, some Norse things, and anything to do with scrolls (particularly calligraphy) across all periods.

Offices & Positions

  • Scrivener Royal (one of two) for the reign of Dietrich I and Thora I. I learned a lot, had a lot of fun, and it was a privilege to serve.
  • Deputy Seneschal for Windmasters' Hill from June 2017-March 2018. Long enough to conduct the Baronial polling while our Seneschal was doing her internship in Prague, and happy to hand over the reigns again once she returned.
  • Her Majesty's Armored Champion for the Reign of Cuan VIII and Signy II.

Projects & Publications
