Lady Patricia of Trakai is a resident of the Barony of Storvik in the Kingdom of Atlantia. She arrived in the Known World toward the end of A.S. XXXVIII (mundanely early 2004). Her pronouns are she/her.
Lady Patricia is the widow of a minor noble associated with Trakai Castle, a major center of 15th-century Lithuania. However, she is interested in the broad sweep of Lithuanian history from the early days of the Baltic tribes to the formation of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
She often dresses in the manner of the people she visits within the Kingdom of Atlantia. You may find her wearing the clothes of a Viking, a generic early Celt, a High Middle Ages peasant, a 16th-century Ottoman woman, a Trossfrau, or a lady from the Italian peninsula.
