Marites ( THESS ) is the Wife of Duke Christian du Glaive. She is relatively new to the SCA (and America) and has not as of yet developed a persona. THESS grew up in the Philippines and has also lived in Hong Kong. She is as tireless as much as she is sweet. Her ideas of service can be an example for all of us, having been raised with the rich Filipino culture of family and community. Her quiet service to the Brotheren of the Order has included nursing our wounds and bruises to sewing our clothes to cooking Lumpia for us in camp after a long hard day on the battlefield. I get to say all these nice things about her because I am her husband. Every Knight will tell you that thier Lady is his inspiration. Thess is not only my inspiration, she has given me the eyes to see the worlds true beauty, the Ears to hear voice of compassion, and the tongue to give flavor to words like "Honor", "Commitment", and "Love".
From Methius- Thess is devotion given form. She truly loves Duke Christian and supports his in everything he does as a knight of the realm. She is truly a helping hand and a motivation to me. Others could find an example in her actions and I would like to thank her for all she does behind the scenes. God bless you Thess.
