Alicia du Bois is a woman living in late 14th Century England. She grew up the daughter of a wool merchant and was lucky enough to be taught to read and write. When she married, her Flemish husband took over the family business. He is always off traveling and was regretfully lost at sea. She has two children, Elizabeth (Bee) and Jamie. She enjoys a comfortable life as a minor noble and sometime court retainer.
Her particular passion is lettering (calligraphy) and she loves to teach others how to make beautiful letters. She is also an accomplished seamstress, embroiderer, and loves to dance. She currently resides in the Barony of Madrone.
