Letter of Intent for Lord Thomas Chisholm and THL Catylyn verch Morgant ap Llewellyn
Unto Their Royal Majesties Alexander and Tahira, Kingdom Seneschal Eronric of Devon, Their Excellencies Robartach mac Lochlainn and Gyda Magnusdotter, as well as the noble populace of the Barony of Starkhafn, do we Lord Thomas Chisholm and THL Catylyn verch Morgant ap LLewellyn send warm greetings.
It is with all sincerity and due consideration that we offer our letter of intent for the positions of Baron and Baroness of Starkhafn. This is done with full knowledge of the commitment of time and resources needed and which we are prepared to make. Considerable counsel and encouragement has been received from many fellow populace members. With their support and the confidence of the Crown and Kingdom Seneschal we have no doubt we will be able to carry out the duties of Baron and Baroness and serve our Kingdom and Barony well.
Together we have over 50 years of experience in the Society of Creative Anachronism. Lord Thomas found the SCA while serving in the Marine Corps in 1987. THL Catylyn discovered the SCA through theater groups and costume design while participating in the Renaissance faire venue in the 1980’s. We finally met each other and married five years ago and have shared this dream happily since.
I (Thomas) have been the head of the fighting household of Dragon Watch since 2005 and have been a heavy armored fighter since 1987. I have served the Barony as Constable for three years as well as the Baronial Regalia officer and continue to hold those offices. In the mundane world my experiences include 8 years of service in the United States Marine Corps, 6 years experience as a restaurant manager and 10 years experience as the director of sales for a fine art publisher. I have cultivated many skills through these professions such as leadership, customer service and the ability to maintain a level head even under the most stressful situations.
THL Catylyn has served as an SCA Exchequer since the 1990’s starting in the Shire of WinDale, working several years as the Estrella War Exchequer, the Talon Crescent War Exchequer and then ultimately taking the position of Baronial Exchequer for Starkhafn. In the mundane world she started her career as a paramedic and then RN in the emergency services field serving on both ambulances and helicopters. She finally settled down to work in a hospital here in Las Vegas as a vascular access specialist. She is well known for keeping a level head and calm demeanor in high stress situations. Her organizational skills and attention to detail will continue to serve this Barony well into the future.
Having served in support of our current Baron and Baroness, we have seen the demands that are required of such a commitment and we are well prepared to take on those responsibilities. We hope that we can continue the most excellent work and service that our Excellencies have given to our Barony and to the Kingdom of CAID. We believe we have the experience and the skills needed to serve as Baron and Baroness and look forward to the opportunity to support our populace here in Starkhafn and throughout the Known World to thrive and continue to enjoy this dream we all share and love.
In Service of the Dream,
