Notes over which Genevieve has no say...

From an interview with Maminka, Genevieve DeMarais (or DesMarais) said she has been a scribe for about 8 years or so (as of June 2023). As one who has seen her work, it is fantastic! ~ Halima al-Rakkasa

Having been a shiremate of Genvieve's since we all started together 12 years ago, she is much more than a scribe. She has been an officer of some manner for a decade, and autocrated events, demos, retinue, you name it, she helped with it. ~ Mikolaj Thorkelwicz (AS LVIII)
