Melchior zum grauen Wolf
Melchior (Mel) is the current Web Minister for the Kingdom of Atlantia. He is also a White Scarf and a nut for period math and science (cryptography, in particular)
Lord Melchior zum grauen Wolf, Provost, is from the Dutchy of Bavaria in the late 15th century (or, in the modern middle ages, the Barony of Lochmere in Atlantia). He is court advisor to Duke William V on matters of communication and science. He currently resides in Heidelberg where he traveled to attend, and then to lecture, at the University.
He makes the return journey to Landshut annually to attend court but is in close communication with the House of Wittelsbach through the use of ciphers and codes. A topic which he has developed a considerable library and is willing to share his knowledge of with all who have interest. A good cipher, after all, can’t be broken even if you know how it is supposed to work.
He enjoys practicing the sword, solving puzzles, a good book (of the martial or mathematical sciences), and sitting by Neckar with his Lady.
Melchior’s primary interests in the SCA are the rapier (martial), research of period cryptography (A&S), and generally helping out in any way that will make everyone smile a little more, with specific focus on technology (service).
