Lavan Longwalker

From ThinkWell #6:
I am Sir Lavan Longwalker (remember LAVA soap and you'll remember my name). I have been playing since the summer of 1983. Grand Outlandish was my first event. I was a squire for a bit over two and a half years and was knighted at Estrella War in 1986. In 1988 I became indentured to "good" King George (called the Bush-whacker). I spent a few wonderful years in the West (on a far-away island without SCA, oh how sad the days were) and a grand eight months in Atlantia where I made many fine friendships I hope will last long into my lifetime. I have since finished my service and returned to the Outlands and here will I stay in my beloved homeland!

I love tourneys and melees and believe in grand times above grand victories. I pride myself on my ability to die well (probably since it happens quite often). I make my own clothes these days, and I believe I make a fine shoe. I am not set in any one style or century when it comes to clothing (though I claim 14th Century England for my persona). Some call me a "clothes-horse" for the amount of clothes I bring to events, but I believe the ladies would rather see different clothes on a person than the same smoky, sweaty ones worn all weekend!

Lavan was Gunwaldt's squire, and Charles is Lavan's squire.
