Regarding the portrait (right): "The lower string of amber was a gift from Her Excellency, Sigen Fridreksdottir, Baroness Northkeep. The string of amber above that belonged to Her Excellency, Mistress Anastacia ('Stacia') Marie Travarra. The large piece of spun amber was a gift from His Grace, Sir Gunthar Jonsson after our tourney fight. My Falcon was passed to me by Her Excellency, Mistress Gunhilda Amberstar. The Centurion's Cloak was the last cloak made by Her Excellency, Mistress Dunstana Talana the Violet. It was unfinished, and Centurion Treschen von Asselen completed it prior to this event."

Additional Heraldry

Registered Badge: Per saltire vert and Or, four mullets of four counterchanged.
