Brother Dair was born in the village of Roghadal in the once-Norse Outer Hebrides of Scotland. His Gàidhlig (Scottish Gaelic) birth name is Þórmóðr Clainn mhic Leòid na Hearaidh, which roughly translates as “Tormod, of the Clan MacLeod, of the Isle of Harris.”

Because of the moral resolve that he showed as a youth, he picked up the nickname Diar which means “oak tree” in his native tongue – by which he is almost exclusively known today. He became a novice at a nearby monastery at a very young age. Excelling in academia, the Right Reverend Abbot Chliamann (Clement) sent him to study in Rome with a sealed letter addressed to HH Pope Martinus III (formerly Archbishop of Venice), describing Brother Dair as Homo Universalis.

His studies eventually took him from Rome to Japan, with a group of Portuguese Jesuit missionaries, where he was a personal guest in the household of Soga no Takashi, from whom he learned much during his several-year stay.

As a learned monk, Brother Dair’s travels have taken him throughout the known world. More recently, he has lived in Tirnewydd Shire (AS 13-32), Azurmont Canton (AS 32-36), and presently resides in Quintavia Shire (since AS 36). He is currently studying to become Quintavia Shire’s Milestone Pursuivant of Arms; and perhaps, someday, the Kingdom of the East’s Brigantia Herald of Arms.
