Since I asked this question, I should give my answer.

A Lion of Ansteorra is a person who has raised their level of play to the
point that the individual dividing line separating their person (mundane)
and persona (SCA) is no longer discernable.  They have achieved such a
total integration of their persona that is no longer a act, but is a part
of their everyday life.  

Name any Lion of Ansteorra and I think you will see that they pass this test.
