A “persona” is a character that you portray, either an actual individual (e.g., King Ragnar Lodbrok (although actual historical names are not allowed in the SCA)) or a type or class of person who may have lived during a specific time period (e.g., an English warrior born and raised in Surrey in the 15th Century, or a Roman camp follower who may have served as camp cook and battlefield nurse).

If you’ve joined the group, there are many people here who can help you choose a role or persona that fits what you are interested in. Otherwise, our suggestion is to start with something simple and generic.
