Epy Pengelly, Armiger (they/them)
Epy lives in Highland Foorde. You can find them most often with the equestrians, but they also greatly enjoy performing music in ensembles. They are a member of Laydes Fayre (since Fall 2019), and likes to play in the pit band for dances/balls when able. Currently serving as the Minister of the Lists of Highland Foorde, Epy also tries to stay active as an Equestrian Marshal or Autocrat of an event.
Epy's name came from a lost bet, and they saw it through by registering the name. It is a Cornish name, from the 10th - 12th c. They do not strictly adhere to this region or time period for a persona, but do tend to dress in the looser-fitting clothes of this era.
Music: They play the tenor viol da gamba, viola, violin, and sings.
Particular interests include: Gothic architecture (particularly cathedrals), late medieval English literature, equestrian things
Things they want to learn more about: clothing, naalbinding, weaving, metal-working/blacksmithing, non-Western cultures

Meet The Horses
Equines are a staple of the historic world, but now are somewhat of a novelty. That being said, the equestrians of Atlantia love showing them off and introducing people to them! Do you want to meet our horses? Feel free to come ask if you can be introduced to the right animal-- some of them are more shy around new people, whereas others are friendlier. At events we try to set up day shades for people to sit under and watch our activities in relative comfort. Please join us!
Leo is an ex-racehorse, and likes to get into mischief! You are more likely to meet him at an overnight event; he likes having a chance to settle into somewhere new before working, so day events are hard for him. He is a thoroughbred, and his favorite treats are anything crunchy (apples, carrots, etc).
Libby is a quiet Morgan pony who likes to meet new people! She is a bit reserved, and loves horse treats more than apples.
