Orla O'shanahan

Persona

Honorable Lady Órlaith inghean uí Sheanacháin. (Anglicized/modernized as Orla O'shanahan) is a Viking woman living in Ireland during the 10th century. Her skill and trade by day is in the crafting and shaping of fine metals and gems. Her coronets, brooches and ornaments are worn by some of Ealdormere's finest folk. When at camp and at war her voice can be heard round the fire, warmed by the joys of sharing cider and song. In recent times she or her husband, James Kidd, can often be found chasing or being harried by, their not so wee bairn, Iris.

Whereabouts

Orla resides in the sunny south of the Shire of Trinovantia Nova.
