Idonia has a long history of running events and holding offices, and has even run one feast a loooooong time ago. In particular, Idonia has edited the newsletters of two kingdoms and Northshield when it first became a principality, and has been a seneschal in two baronies. She has fought at Estrella, Lilies (ah, the woods battle!), and Pennsic. She also enjoys winemaking, heraldry, dancing, the bardic arts, and even the occasional piece of embroidery. Idonia is a founding member of the Honour of the Domestic Goddess in the Barony of the Eldern Hills in Ansteorra, and is the co-first recipient of that group's service award, the Order des Cotes Anciennes. She is also a member of the Bad Influence Guild in Atlantia. Idonia's only protege, (the Evil) Baroness Kateryn of the Amber Mists, was elevated to the Order of the Pelican in 2013.
