 ===== Persona ===== ===== Persona =====
 +Lord Richard of Dragon Castle is a 12th-century man of mixed French and Scottish heritage living in Portsmouth, England with his much younger wife, Baronessa [[people:​Gina Dragoni]] (who was herself born August 22nd, 1338). Richard is the son of Edmund, a Scottish architect, and a french mother.
  
-Born12th Century+Richard'​s life in his own words is as follows:
  
-Ancestry: Mother was French and father, Edmund, ​was Scottish architect.+"​My ​father ​built castles for the King of England Henry I and his wife Matilda (Princess of Scotland). King Henry was very impressed with the work of my father and gave him permission to build a castle and use the name Dragon as his own.
  
-Wife: Lady [[people:​Gina Dragoni]]born August 221338 (Much younger woman)+At this point in history I was very youngbut showed interest in barteringconversation,​ and travelling. Father decided that building his new castle in a port of trade would help his favourite son in his future. ​ Portsmouth was the city of choice and that is where Dragon Castle remains.
  
-Home: PortsmouthEngland+I spent a few years of my early manhood participating in the First Crusadebut decided that a warrior’s life was not for me. During these years I met many connections in the business world, and decided that a merchant’s life would be much more profitable.
  
-Life in his own words: ​  +I spent many years travelling to the important trading cities ​in the world from Englandmet many interesting people and heard many wonderful storiesEven though I have travelled ​the world, I always considered Portsmouth ​my home.

I stayed longer than expected because I was smitten by his beautiful daughter that was working by his side.  ​She had learned to speak English so that she could help her father talk to other merchant traders. I was very lucky that I didn’t have to learn to speak Italian.
  
-"I spent a few years of my early manhood participating in the crusades, but decided that a warrior’s life was not for me.  During these years, I met many connections in the business world and decided that a merchant’s life would be much more profitable. +Within a month we were married and on our way back to England. ​

-"I got so tired of experiencing seasickness with being on the water that I finally retired from sea travel. ​ My wife and I now live a comfortable life back in Portsmouth in Dragon Castle. ​ I continue to trade in wools & silk fabric as my father-in-law ships me these wonderful silk to sell on his behalf. ​ Of course I take a healthy commission for my work.  I also trade in other merchandise depending upon my clients needs."​+
