Alys Mackyntoich is a Scots woman of various eras, depending on her mood. She enjoys research of various kinds, and is well-known for her heraldic research and for writing scroll texts in a period legal style. Until recently, her singing and performance skills were only rarely on display (unless you count serving as baronial and royal court herald), although people of a certain age may recall her participation in mummings and commedia dell'arte while she lived in Carolingia. Alys currently resides in Settmour Swamp.
