ibn Jelal's picture

Adib ibn Jelal began his SCA career in Dismal Fogs, experiencing the corrupting influences of Dede Kilic and Master Giles in the art of getting it right. After heavily dabbling for years with the art and culture of the Middle East, ibn Jelal discovered period fencing, which began an obsession that has consumed him for more than a decade. He was one of the first two people to play a proper prize in Lochac, and the first person in Lochac to play a Guildmaster's Prize, going on to become the first Lord Guildmaster for Lochac's Royal Guild of Defence. He is also the premier member of the Order of the White Scarf of Lochac. He seems to be making it a habit of being the first in various fencing endeavours. When not terrorising fencing students, ibn Jelal can be found enjoying a quiet drink and good food with his friends.
