Odile de Brienne, Baroness Sternfeld
(Indianapolis, IN)
Baroness Odile
Baroness Odile de Brienne joined the SCA in 2005 with an interest in 14th century France and costume that has only grown in the intervening years. Since then she has attempted armored and rapier combat, archery, thrown weapons and a hint of equestrian, as well as branching out into numerous A&S endeavors. She has similarly participated actively in service, most notably as a Baronial Chronicler and a regional MOAS prior to being invested as the Landed Baroness of Sternfeld. She brings a background in English literature and experience in project management and wrangling cats to the staff of SCA 50 Year.
