Antheia is on sabbatical for school, but she still loves you!

Antheia discovered NarniaMUCK when she was bored one summer and decided to google "Narnia+games". She stumbled across NarniaMUCK and capriciously signed up, without even knowing what "RP" stood for. The players and staff were so welcoming and encouraging, however, that she quickly found a home there.

Antheia joined the prestigious ranks of the RP staff members in 2009. She loves roleplay, plots, and Narnia and has dedicated a ridiculous number of hours to roleplaying and/or helping others roleplay.

Fun Facts About Antheia:
She lived long enough outside her home country at one point that she was considered an "ex-patriate".
She has studied all three fencing weapons, but her weapon of choice is the foil.
She's studying for her MFA.
She likes to dance, and has studied several different styles to varying degrees of expertise.
She knows what a cephalopod is (because she reads dinocomics).
She knows what kerning is (because she's in publishing).
She knows how to make Apfelkuchen (because duh).
