Introduction

Cyneswith the Quiet, Cyneswith of Lost Forest, Cyneswith inghean Domhnall

Cyneswith is a scribe, youth officer, and an A&S enthusiast. She is a second-gen SCAdian, and went to her first event at age 3. She has been sewing since age 6 and doing calligraphy since age 7. She enjoys C&I, cartography, wood-working, embossing, paint-making, cooking, brewing, wild edible plants, and research. She also raises period-breed chickens. She sews when she must. Encouraging others in pursuing arts and science is her primary goal. She is a former archer, former heavy fighter, and currently learning rapier fighting.

Persona

Cyneswith was born in 1285 AD to a lesser Scottish noble, Domnall, and an English mother. Her mother died in childbirth, and her dying wish was to name her daughter after the patron saint of the abbey where she was raised. Her father traveled a lot and was mostly mystified by what to do with a child, so Cyneswith mostly did as she pleased so long as it didn't cause complaints. What pleased her was to learn and she developed a hodgepodge of unrelated skills. Cyneswith is a proud Scot with ties to the French court and a calculating disdain for the English.

Cyneswith's persona, aside from the above, is unknown.
