About the Contributors to the Auguast, A.S. 49 edition of Cockatrice

Lady Gabriella Borromei is a Courtesan hailing from Fiorenz. She is a well travelled daughter of a Silk Merchant, whose mother disappeared when she was a child. She was
raised by her father and given an education in view to her marrying well and taking over the business, but Gabriella had other opinions and ran away to look for her mother. She found herself in the courts of Venice where her talents were nurtured and she became a sought after companion. Gabriella is continuing her search for her mother and currently resides in the lovely Canton of Stegby.

Lady Kara of Kirriemuir was born in the 13th Century in Scotland, however she currently resides in Venice helping to run a House (Casa de li Gatti) for educating Courtesans. Kara’s main role is feeding her household and teaching the members Cooking, Budgeting and Household Management. Kara’s favourite dishes to cook are all
the different varieties of tarts and pies. Kara has recently learnt Wood Turning and plans to pass this knowledge onto the other members.

Theophrastus von Oberstockstall is a Lord in the Barony of Riven haven. He pursues knowledge of a medieval chemical nature (having transcribed the first printed distillation text ‘The Art of Distillation’) mixed with intriguing medical interests (witnessed in his recent transcription of ‘The Seeing of Urines’, a urine diagnoisitic text) and other fascinations (ergot poisoning in medieval European history). He is currently under Laurel apprenticeship to Mistress Filippa Ginevra Francesca di Lucignano. He dreams of holding a reenactment of Dr. John Dee’s ceremonial magic in full garb, but is current working on a new readable version of ‘Liber Ratziel’ and planning a new transcription of a Gentleman’s etiquette book. He is married to Lady Helyana van Brugge who together have created their Great Works, Hannah and George.
