Idonia has edited the newsletters of two baronies, two kingdoms, and Northshield when it first became a principality. She has been a seneschal in two baronies, has run events more times than she can remember, and was  a feastocrat once (a loooooooong time ago). She has made wine and cordials, taught dancing, heralded a bit, sung a bawdy ditty or two, stitched the occasional piece of embroidery, and fought at Estrella, Lilies (ah, the woods battle!), and Pennsic. Idonia is a Domestic Goddess of the Barony of the Eldern Hills in Ansteorra, and is the co-first recipient of that group's first service award, the Order des Cotes Anciennes. Unsurprisingly, she is a member of the Bad Influence Guild in Atlantia. In other words, Idonia has been around a long time - at the first-ever Northshield Althing, it was determined that, by the date of her first involvement with the Society, that she was as old as (but not older than) dirt. Idonia's former protege, (the Evil) Baroness Kateryn of the Amber Mists, was elevated to the Order of the Pelican in 2013.
