Eilid of Bjornaer

Eilid (pron. EH-lit) is a Bjornaer maga whose heartbeast is a red deer. Although she is technically a founding member of the covenant (having signed the Charter in 1143), she resigned her membership upon returning from the Gathering of Twelve Years in 1155, only to rejoin after the Gathering in 1167. She is the only member of the covenant to stay after Faileas's death, and invited Boudicca of Bonisagus to try her hand at pulling the covenant back from the brink of extinction.

She has yet to Gauntlet an apprentice, despite her age. She has taken three catuli, but for one reason or another, they have always wound up with another parens at Twelve Years.

She is a lab rat, and is responsible for several of the covenant's magical items (particularly the Bridge Posts and the Map of the Meandering Monster). A few of the covenfolk can claim blood-relation to Eilid; she had two children by her late husband, who in turn had children and grandchildren of their own. Her current lab assistant is her great-granddaughter, Frida. (b. 1205)

Relatively tall and rather thin, Eilid has very long brown hair that she normally keeps bound up. Her preferred garb is a simple homespun robe and sandals.

Her Talisman is a gold necklace that is large enough to serve as collar for her Heartbeast form. ("If you see a deer wearing a gold necklace, for the love of God, don't shoot!")
