Letter of Intent

25 April 2019, A.S. LIII

Unto Juliana Laurel; Alys Pelican; Cormac Wreath; and the commenting Members of the College of Arms,

Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!

The Atenveldt College of Heralds requests the consideration and registration of the following names and armory with the College of Arms. Unless specifically stated, the client will accept any spelling and grammar corrections; all assistance is appreciated.

1. Aimée Douglas and Dougal MacPherson the Tall: NEW JOINT BADGE

Per bend sinister vert and azure, four pairs of human footprints in bend sinister argent.

This is a jointly-held badge. The names were registered July 1999 and August 1998, respectively.

The use of foot/paw prints is a Step from Period Practice.

2. Daniel Theoson of Mightrinwood: NEW DEVICE
Purpure, a sun of eight wavy rays sable fimbriated and a bordure dovetailed Or.

The name was registered July 2008.

The registered arms of Theo of Mightrinwood are Purpure, a sun of eight wavy rays sable, fimbriated Or. The client, his legal son, has received Permission to Conflict from the executor of Theo's estate, and this requires only one DC to conflict from his father's armory (with the addition of the bordure dovetailed).

3. Lyn of Whitewolfe: NEW AUGMENTATION OF ARMS
Gules, a pile wavy bendwise issuant from sinister base between two roundels argent each charged with a rose gules, barbed and seeded proper, and as an augmentation in canton a sunburst Or issuant from clouds argent.

The name was registered April 1985.

The client's arms, Gules, a pile wavy bendwise issuant from sinister base between two roundels argent each charged with a rose gules, barbed and seeded proper., was registered December 1985. The Augmentation of Arms was awarded to the client 30 March 2019.

4. Orabilis Douw: BADGE RESUBMISSION from Laurel, January 2019
Per saltire gules and sable, in fess a dragon and a Greek sphinx rampant contourny each maintaining a sword, their tails entwined argent, a bordure embattled ermine.

The name was registered July 2017.

The previous submission, Per saltire gules and sable, in fess a dragon maintaining a sword and a Greek sphinx rampant contourny maintaining an arrow, their tails entwined argent, a bordure embattled ermine., was returned by Laurel for “violation of SENA A5E3, which generally limits complexity of armory to eight tinctures and charge types. The submitted badge features four tinctures (argent, sable, gules, ermine) and five charges (dragon, sword, griffin, arrow, and bordure), for a total complexity count of nine.”

Both monsters now maintain swords (the arrow is gone), reducing the total complexity count to eight.

5. Orabilis Douw: NEW HOUSEHOLD NAME and NEW BADGE, “Catwolf Keep”

Sable, a chatloup rampant within a masculyn argent.

The client's personal name was registered July 2017.

Keep is an approved household designator found in SENA Appendix E. The monster is also known as a catwolf (the English translation for chatloup) in Dennys, Gaston Phebus, Count of Foy, wrote a Book of the Hunt (Livre de chasse) c. 1389, which describes animals that were hunted by the nobility of the time, along with animal behavior:

"Espèce de chat sauvage, loup cervier": Toutes voies y a il de diverses manieres de chaz sauvaiges, espiciaument il en y a uns qui sont granz comme lieparz, et ceuls apelent aucuns loups cerviers et les autres chaz loux. Et c'est mau dit, quar ils ne sont ne lous serviers ni chatz lous. On les pourroit mieulz apeler chaz lieparz que autrement, quar ilz traient plus a liepart que a autre beste. (GAST. PHÉBUS, Livre chasse T., 1387-1389, 104). (;str=0), which more or less translates as

"Species of wild cat, loup cervier": All routes are there in various ways of chaz sauvaiges, espícially there are some who are granz like lieparz, and they call no lynxes and others chaz loux. And that's right, they're not servants or chatting. They could better be called upon if they otherwise treated more than any other beast. (

The masculyn is found in the arms of Henry Pay d. 1419. The catloup is a monster with the face of a cat, the body of a wolf, and the serrated horns of an antelope. It was also called a “calopus,” “catwolf,” or “catalope.” It is found on the canting crest of Cathorne, 1553. Information on the charges is found in the online Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry,

6. Seinean Velte: NEW NAME and DEVICE
Per bend sinister argent and gules, two frogs bendwise heads to center counterchanged sable and argent.

Seinean Brueckner was born 8 Nov 1558 in Cannstatt u. Stuttgart, Württemberg, Deutschland (in Württemberg, Germany, Lutheran Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials, 1500-1985,; a copy is attached. I'm at a loss to read the old script. However, there is a similar name in Sinion Burckhart has a christening date of 17 Aug 1575 in Biberach (OA. Biberach), Württemberg, Germany (Batch C92381-1 ,
Elsam Velte was married 28 July 1607 in Gross Bieberau, Hessen Germany; her father was Leonhart Velte ( Batch M93209-1,

The client doesn't care about the gender of the name. (Sinion is a male name.)

I was assisted in the preparation of this Letter with commentary provided by Iago ab Adam, Lyn of Whitewolfe and Seamus mac Riain.

There are 1 New Name, 1 New Household Name, 2 New Devices, 2 New Badges and 1 New Augmentation of Arm. There is 1 Badge Resubmission. There is a total of 8 items on this Letter, 6 of them new: Laurel should receive $28 for them.

Thank you to those who provide your wisdom and patience, your expertise and your willingness to share it.
