About Princess Achaxe Ek Auchatae

Pronouns: she/her

Background

Her Royal Highness Achaxe is Pazyryk, a nomadic Scythian culture living on the Altaic steppes around 450 BCE. She also enjoys dabbling in other early period clothing styles. She is a member of the Laurel’s Council and the Pelican’s Council.

Achaxe loves costuming, fiber arts, metalworking, ceramics, glasswork, woodwork, leatherwork, research, and learning about cultures, peoples, and things that are new to her. She always wants to see your art or listen to what you are passionate about. If she can facilitate connections for you, or help you move your project along, she will endeavor to do so. There are times when she gets overwhelmed by large groups of people or too many people talking at once. She may sometimes need to be alone in a quiet place to recharge. 

Her Royal Highness is particularly passionate about growing and fostering a healthy Kingdom and a healthy SCA for all.

Achaxe loves all colors and can be recognized by such symbols as hearts, seeblats, Scythian panthers, laurel leaves, pelicans, and roses.

Food and Drink Preferences

Her Royal Highness has a severe reaction to onions and onion-like vegetables in any preparation!

Achaxe also does not care for bell peppers or other nightshades, red meat, or wheat flour. They do not agree with her digestion.

Please do tempt her with cheese, raw vegetables (other than those noted above), fruit – both fresh and dried, avocado, hummus, tzatziki, nuts, chicken, turkey, eggs, salmon, salad rolls, corn tortillas or tortilla chips, plain Greek yogurt, granola, peanut butter, dark chocolate, and apricot jam. Her Highness also enjoys mildly spiced foods from the Middle East, India, and other regions of Asia.

Her Royal Highness drinks water, coffee with a small amount of cream or milk, chocolate milk, chai, fizzy water, and sekanjabin. She prefers not to drink alcohol, Gatorade or other Power Drinks, and soda.
