Kingdom of Atenveldt
ATENVELDT COLLEGE OF HERALDS
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.
Daniel Theoson of Mightrinwood: NEW DEVICE
The name was registered July 2008.
Lyn of Whitewolfe: NEW AUGMENTATION OF ARMS
BADGE RESUBMISSION from Laurel, January 2019
name was registered July 2017.
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, http://mistholme.com/pictorial-dictionary-of-heraldry/. 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). (http://circe.atilf.fr/definition/dmf/chat-loup?idf=complXpcYXbcehh;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, http://mistholme.com/pictorial-dictionary-of-heraldry/.
