Euriol is the daughter of one of the ladies in waiting to Elizabeth de Burgh (Queen Consort to Robert the Bruce). Much to her mother’s chagrin, Euriol often sneaked into the kitchen to help with the cooking, but she was educated enough to appreciate the fine art of embroidery. As a young woman she enjoyed travelling with the court (and still would often sneak into the kitchens to learn what she could from the Master cooks she met in her travels). She was wedded for a while, and from this union she gave birth to two sons Ian and Stefanus. She is very proud as a mother as she witnesses her two sons growing into fine men. Her eldest son, Ian, often sneaks his way into the kitchens with or without her.

Real Last Name: Werbin
SCA Bio:

Paul Po Silvertop the Rogue Tarlton: the illegitimate son of Richard Tarlton. Elizabethan actor, jester, troubadour and London Master of Defense, Richard Tarlton takes his place in theatrical history as creator of the stage fool; his performance in this role is thought to have influenced Shakespeare’s creation of the character Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Tartlton himself is said to have been the model for the court jester Yorick, described in Hamlet. Richard’s popularity and genius were undisputed—not only was he a well-known actor but also Queen Elizabeth I’s favorite jester, the only one able to undumpish her when she was out of humour and the only one allowed to tell her of her faults. In 1583, Richard Tarlton became a leading comic actor of the Queen’s Men and groom of her Majesty’s chamber. His plays, which were praised by contemporaries, are all lost, but several volumes of Elizabethan humor are still extant and attributed to him. Richard Tarlton appears on the lists of the London Masters of Defence, meaning he was a fully accredited master and teacher of several styles of rapier combat.) Po (the result of a tryst between Tarlton and a London barmaid) studied both swordplay and theatre first under his father Richard, and then later under additional members of the Lord Chamberlain’s Men. Additional interests (writing, singing and wenching) were later added to his repertoire during several lengthy tours through Europe as a member of various small traveling thespian companies. During one of these lengthy tours Po acquired a small sea-going vessel The Muses Call as well as privateers Letters of Marque from Their Majesties.

Personal Bio: A transplanted New Yorker and first-generation bookstore-brat, Scott Werbin started private acting courses (and sabre fencing) as a young boy, and went on to earn dual Bachelor of Arts Degrees in both performance and technical theatre at Wilkes College (where he studied under noted Broadway Scenic Designer Klaus Holm). After graduating from Wilkes University, Scott continued his technical theatre studies at a graduate level at both Villanova University and then in Yale University’s Graduate Theatre program. Returning to NEPA, Scott has spent time on the board of directors (as facility Technical Director) for three different regional theatres, and under the name of “Technical Thaumaturgy” has been offering his services as a freelance scenic and lighting designer, as well as stage combat choreographer. His scenic design for “Dear Esther: A Holocaust Play” was used on tour with the Pennsylvania Repertory Theatre for several years. In addition to designing lights and sets, he still auditions and is seen onstage. Scott has also coordinated and directed the Steel Rose Players, a medieval/renaissance reenactment group that performs at local faires. He also spent a decade managing bookstores and writing literary reviews. During daylight hours he provides customer service for a pharmaceutical corporation. He and his 3rd generation theatre-brat wife Jessica are currently raising the 4th generation of theatre-brats, Eric and Michael.

My family had been Nomads for quite some time, fleeing from the Christian genocide against witches. The courts seized or imprisoned our kind in the witch’s prisons.

We are peaceful people and do not mean any harm to anyone.
