Falconeria (Falconry)

Not directly related to garb but certainly relevant to my persona. This weekend I was able to fly two Harris hawks. Falconry is a sport and pastime that was practiced by the nobles of Europe and Florence was no exception. It was definitely all about status. An illegitima such as Fiore di Bardi might not have owned a bird of her own but because I love raptors, I play her as having received one as a gift from the Medici. A Merlin, small in stature and tenacious. Just like Fiore.
