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 RP staff in 2009. She loves roleplay, plots, and Narnia and has dedicated a frankly 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 sport fencing weapons, but her weapon of choice is the foil.
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 it's good).
