Abrahe started playing in the SCA in 1987 with the University of Oregon student group in the Barony of Adiantum. At first, he settled on the name Ealdred Mac an Toisich, an early period Scots/Irish persona, and participated as a member of several Baronies and Shires throughout the "downtown" Kingdom of An Tir. Over time his persona evolved to the Tudor era and he updated his name to Aldred MackIntosh. Around 2004, he switched personas altogether and became Abrahe çaragoça, an Aragonese in the early 16th century. Abrahe received an AoA from the hand of Darius and Morgaine in 1997 and a Goutte de Sang from the hands of Tiernan and Miranda on August 14, 2010. As a member of the Barony of Blatha an Oir, he was given a Golden Blossom from their Excellencies Aleksii and Elspeth and was also made a Companion of the Brier. Abrahe moved to the Shire of Fendrake Marsh, Principality of Cynagua in the Kingdom of the West in early 2011. In the Principality of Cynagua, he was made a member of the Order of the Friendly Castle by Prince Richard and Princess Alloria in April 2012. He was the Seneschal and WebMinister for the Shire of Fendrake Marsh, but relenquished those duties upon moving to the Province of Silver Desert in early 2014. He was also honored with the Scutiferus Cynaguae and made a member of the Order of La Courtesia by Prince Miach and Princess Sciath in 2013 and awarded the Order of the Leaf of Merit by Queen Violante in 2014 and the Order of the Rose Leaf by Queen Ciar in 2023. Abrahe pursues medieval cooking and is currently apprenticed to Viscountess Gwendwyn the Silent and was made a member of the Order of the Scarf of the Rose Leaf by King Miles and Queen Jitka.
El Senyor Abrahe çaragoça de girona is an Aragonese in the year 1523. He was born in 1466 to Jacobus çaragoça, a joiner, and Esther charbit.

As he grew, he learned his father's trade but was then sent off to work in the kitchen of a local noble. He began his own family with La Senyora Honorada Agnés berengarii de girona. Their daughter is Antonia Ursula "The Turnip" çaragoça berengarii.
