Congrats Lady Melissa!...and persona developmentMon, August 25, 2008 - 9:21 AM
This has been a long work in progress, but each year I go to Pennsic, I get inspired and develop more of a story around why I am there.
Mavi Kemani - has only vague memories of parents and a home. She is not sure exactly where she came from or how old she is. When she was very young, she was sent on a sea voyage to an arranged marriage, perhaps, or maybe to study at a convent...but her ship was intercepted by corsairs, and she was sold to the Topkapi palace to become an odalisque. She was named Mavi because of her blue eyes, and her blue disposition. In the harem, she was trained as a musician and showed aptitude for playing the Keman, or violin, hence the name "Kemani." However, life in the harem was not for her. While attempting to escape the confines of the palace, she ran into a peculiar man who called himself, simply "The Doctor." He helped her escape, and gave her a device that enables her to travel through time and the universe. Since then she has had many incredible adventures and she tends to emulate many of the customs and cultures that she has seen on her travels.

I think the non-member surcharge at Pennsic and other events is more than the membership fee, or at least really close, so there's no reason not to join.
It's a good thing the tardis is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside, since a lot of us are crammed in there.
