Idonia is a 14th C. Englishwoman who is running the family's lands - Dale on the Sea - because she's out of male relatives to do it for her. Her convent education taught her to read and write and turned her into a pragmatist--she can often be found wearing the clothing of her greatgrandmother, carefully kept in clothespresses (why waste perfectly good clothing?). Her one luxury is gardening for fun instead of profit or need. In the SCA, Idonia has a long history of running events and holding offices, and has even run one feast a loooooong time ago. In particular, Idonia has edited the newsletters of two kingdoms and Northshield when it first became a principality, and has been a seneschal in two baronies. She has fought at Estrella, Lilies, and Pennsic. She enjoys winemaking, heraldry, dancing, the bardic arts, and even the occasional piece of embroidery. Idonia is a founding member of the Honour of the Domestic Goddess in the Barony of the Eldern Hills in Ansteorra and is the co-first recipient of that group's service award, the Order des Cotes Anciennes. She is also a member of the Bad Influence Guild in Atlantia. Idonia's protege, (the Evil) Baroness Kateryn of the Amber Mists, was elevated to the Order of the Pelican on June 8, 2013.
