Peter Percamen

Description: Peter was a lay member of a nearby monastery, Tynemouth Priory, and a skilled percamenarius. He was recently kicked out — after having been found once again dead drunk in the cellars. When sober, he is a slow, deliberate man, well-suited to the care necessary to his craft.

Peter is fairly personable, a genial drinking-companion, but unless he has been away from his work for some days he tends to smell rather unpleasant.

(A percamenarius is a parchment-maker; see http://web.ceu.hu/medstud/manual/MMM/parchment.html for a nice description of parchment-making.)

Age: 27 (Born A.D. 1193)

Possessions:

  • Parchment-making knives: lunellum, etc.
