I wanted to be a gypsy, well an irish gypsy actually - they were called travellers - but it was recommended to me that i not go that route, but the bard who helped me come up with my story (yes, i have an elaborate one) helped me create a personality that rivals any criminal or gypsy, yet she's a legitimate lady....
guess maybe i should introduce myself? i've been lurking for a while, but haven't chimed in (i dont think) until now
I'm Saorla O'Fallamhain -- and i've created an extensive story i'm quite proud of and will continue to tweak as necessary -- i'm very new to sca and live in the middle of nowhere so i've yet to attend any events
ok here's my story
Saorla O'Fallamhain - also known as Saorla Glyndwr (see below) but I demand you use my given name Saorla O'Fallamhain!
Daughter of Lord Aodhan O'Fallamhain and Lady Shea O'Ceallaigh - born near Dubhleann but grew up in Dolwyddelan Castle in Gwynedd with the noble family Llewellyn having been passed on there by the noble house of Glyndwr for fostering.
Daddy was a Knight who was killed in battle thus sending me to the family Glyndwr. They, however, were not used to a spirited young lady and therefore passed me off to the family Llewellyn where I was educated and raised in the noble way.
Should you choose to cross me, you may hear something of this sort:
Now you just listen to me, you mud-minded trollop, I am Lady Saorla O'Fallamhain with the royal blood of the O'Fallamhains and the O'Caellaighs in my veins, descended from two Kings of Tara! I have endured the wits and spites of the Glyndwrs and the Llewelyns and I don't have to take anything from you!
Dare I say, it wouldn't be wise to cross me!

Eeeek! *ducks under desk* Don't say that too loud our "they" will hear you!
I have been lectured at length; pirates, I am told, are not period. There is
a sort of similar occupation called a "Corsair", or so I have been
'educated' at length, however which may be of interest. Pirate outfits are
about as popular with "them" as pop cans and fairy wings, and has caused
even more gnashing of teeth since the POTC movies came out. *checks to see
if the coast is clear*
