Edward Zifran of Gendy, Viscount, Knight, Master of both the Pelican and the Laurel, Court Baron of several Kingdoms and with such a plethora of other titles and awards that he is usually referred to simply as "His Etceteracy," is one of the legendary figures of the SCA.

- He has served on the BoD many times.
- He was mayor of Pennsic many times.
- He is, in fact, the legendary Fast Eddie of SCA myth. (His sword tip-speed was measured from blur-length on movie film. I do not recall the actual speed.)

- Former squires who have become king: Earl Sir Horic Gravagr.
