Sciath ingen Chaennaig

Persona

Born in the small village of Kyleakin, on An t-Eilean Sgitheanach in the shadow of the red hills of Sgurr na Coinnich, in the Year of Our Lord 1262, when Rí Alban was Alaxandair mac Alaxandair was king, Sciath ingen Chaennaig (pronounced SKY-ah) is the eldest daughter of a sea merchant who married a minor noblewoman from Srath Chluaidh. As her father's business kept him away, it was thought best for Sciath, her sister (Suannoch), and her mother (Jonet) if they moved to Srath Chluaidh, and closer to the security of the family. Once established in Bute, Sciath was taught to run a noble household. Her father's stories of his travels made her dream of the wide world, and her father arranged for her marriage to Ieuan ap Gwilym, a Welshman of noble birth. She moved to Caerleon, in Gwent. This was a far distance from home, and the language was ne'er the same. Life has been an adventure ever since.
