Elashava bas Riva is the 7th daughter of the 7th daughter born to a family of merchants in Canterbury, England in the late 12th century. Over the years she has rode with the Great Dark Horde, time-traveled as the garb allowed, and dabbled in European dance, cooking, games, weaving, stained glass and enamels. Specializing in administration and a few ceremonial duties, there has hardly been a time when she did not hold an office or wear a hat. A few highlights include being recognized as a Laurel in AS 30 for her teaching of European dance by the Middle Kingdom, serving as Territorial Baroness of Jararvellir (March AS 31 to December AS 35), serving as Territorial Princess of Northshield in being AS 37, recognized as the principal Pelican of Northshield in December AS 39, and serving as Kingdom Seneschal of Northshield from January AS 39 to March AS 41. After 5 years of either being Kingdom Chronicler and/or Northwatch Editor, she has retired to the position of Art Director for the Complete Anachronist pamphlet series.

I am proud to count among my dependents Lady Rochl bas Chaim Sternkiker (apprentice currently living in Nordskogen though no longer active in the SCA), THL Innokenti Rublyov called Kenya (apprentice living in the Barony of Jararvellir), Lady Cianna Kharleen (apprentice living in the Barony of Jararvellir), Lady Freydís in tryggva Sigurðardóttir (apprentice/protege ... hmmm, an apprenige?... living in the Shire of Mistig Waetru), Lord Marcial de Salas (apprentice/protege ... hmmm, a protice?... living in the Village of Hvitskogar), Killien MacDoughal (protege/apprentice in the Shire of Darkstone), and Isabella Beatrice della Rosa known as Belle (apprentice living in the Shire of Silfren Mere.) Last year I took a foster protege, Berenice Calvinna from the Shire of Colderdenhale. She has been proteged to Master Julio Galva'n who is unable to be active for the time being. And this spring, I took on Jose São Pacian on as a foster apprentice since his Master, Ingus Moen, is not able to be very active these days.
