Lady Finnebreth Wodeward (AKA Fimbreth Rigsdatter) or Finne has been active in the SCA since 2018. She resides in the Barony of Stierbach and serves as Warden of the Forests of Atlantia and Keeper of The Forest of Stierbach. She also leads a monthly adventuring group, the Stierbach Saunterers. Finnebreth practices scribal arts with Sudentorre Scribes and also takes great interest in sewing and bushcrafting. More recently she is venturing into leatherworking and woodworking in order to improve her kit and camp. Camping events and getting folks outside together are the highlights of her SCA experience-- but really, she just wonders why she took so long to find the SCA at all.
Finnebreth is a 14th century Woodward of minor noble birth stewarding the large aforested holdings of a long absent cousin away in the war with France.
