Sad Tidings: Xerox

It is with heavy hearts that we inform you that Xerox (Zack), the son of Lady Vika Vyborgskaia (our MoL) and step-son of Master Jussi Laplein, passed away unexpectedly yesterday.

Xerox brought Vika and Jussi into the SCA at just 13 years old, as his birthday wish was to camp at Pennsic. As a boy, he was a youth fighter. At Pennsic, he camped with the House of the Blue Rose (Serenity Stone). Xerox a was good-hearted, loving, and caring man, and was an Organ Donor.

We offer our deepest condolences to his mother, Lady Vika, his step-father Master Jussi, and his friends and family.

Lady Vika has asked for time and space to grieve and process, and wishes it known that they have the support of close friends and family.

Due to the pandemic, there will not be a funeral or memorial service at this time. His family hopes to hold a service when they can. Currently, the family requests no flowers or gifts. However, if you would like to make a personal donation (non-SCA) to help cover his unexpected final costs, you can send donations directly to Vika via PayPal (, or to her home address. Or send directly to Noll Funeral Home, 333 Third St, Beaver, PA 15009, “In Memory of Zackery Pickens”.

In Caritate,
Baroness Hilda and Baron Brandubh
