Despotes (using the SCA authorized alternative title for Master) Charimmos of Lakadaimonias (aka Charismos) currently lives in the Barony of Tir-y-Don and has since 2016. Much like his persona, Charimmos has travelled the Knowne World and has resided in numerous kingdoms due to previous employments with his Rich Uncle. Having been recognized and entered into various orders across these kingdoms, Charimmos keeps close ties with many of them, sometimes acting as an emissary upon the Royal's behalf.

Charimmos first began in the SCA in 1996 while then living in what was the Outlands. Having discovered the group through attendance at Colorado State University during a weekly practice, Charimmos has been sucked in ever since. First beginning in armored combat which he regularly enjoyed until medical direction to stop. Charimmos has now fought rapier since 2001 (with a bit of armored overlap) as his primary passion.
