The Order of the Pelican in the Kingdom of Lochac

Peter the Uncertain

(Peter Volk)


Elevated in the reign of Philip and Linda, August AS XXVI

Born 1963. Joined the SCA in 1984 after encountering it at an SF convention. I have been River Haven seneschal, chronicler, herald and chirurgeon, and Crux Australis Herald. I am/was heavily into dance, and spent several years as a member of the Grand Council. I went largely inactive after some bad SCA politics in the mid 1990's, and will probably remain inactive for the foreseeable future. Most of the people I used to work with have also left, and the cycle of tourney, feast, court, rinse and repeat gets a bit tedious after a decade or so. I also get the impression that Lochac has been infected with a bad case of Creeping Authenticity, which is fine as an option, but should not be seen as a requirement.

Mundanely I am one of the collection managers for the Cultures and History program at the Queensland Museum, where I have worked since 1980. It has its moments, but not as many as you might think.

Current Protégés:

Past Protégés:

Harald of Sigtuna (no longer active).... Serena of the Lions Paw (no longer active).... Sine the Shameless (no longer active). (Could there be a pattern here...?)

Current Interests:

Outside of dance, none in the SCA. I stay subscribed to the various lists, but it is rare to see anything new on them.
