Sir Isenwulf Thorolfssone

Within the SCA I am known as Sir Isenwulf Thorolfssone. As a child I always wanted to be a knight in shining armor so when I found out about the Society I put together some armor and began to live the dream. I wasn't a knight right away of course. I spent a lot of time learning how to handle swords, shields, spears and polearms and getting hit often when I handled them incorrectly.

After a time I became a squire, and while receiving the training I needed to accomplish my goals, gained a new family with my knight and squire brothers. Eventually after earning a number of awards for fighting prowess and service I was knighted in a grand ceremony.

Now I am training squires and men-at-arms (both of which fall under the category of minions) of my own and pursuing other medieval interests as time allows. I host a weekly workshop at the house where we do leatherwork and sometimes armoring. I am also one of the commanders of the Company of the Northern Cross, a household based on the Knights Templar.
