pirate wench Scarlett Flynn is played by Phaedra Gay.
Phaedra Gay has been attending renaissance festivals since 1998, when she
and some of her friends made their own costumes to get into the Iowa Renaissance
Festival (then held at the Iowa State Fairgrounds) at a discounted rate.
In January of 2001, while attending college in Iowa City, Phaedra was approached
through the International Wenches Guild website to join a performing stage
combat troupe called the Shattock
Schoole of Defence. Phaedra spent several
seasons performing with them all around the midwest at such events as: A Renaissance
Affaire, Geneseo Shakespearean Festival, Iowa Renaissance Festival, Jubilee
College Olde English Faire, Minnesota Renaissance Festival, My Waterloo Days
Renaissance Faire, Nebraska Renaissance Faire, Nishna River Renaissance Faire,
Salisbury Faire, Upper Great Lakes Renaissance Faire, Wybreg Village Renaissance
Festival, and assorted other events. Phaedra eventually left the group to move
back to Des Moines.
When not being shanghaied into pirate acts, Phaedra works as a bookseller
for a national used bookstore chain (try to guess which one!).
