4 April 2019, A.S. LIII

Unto Their Royal Majesties Morgan and Elizabeth; Baron Seamus MacDade, Aten Principal Herald; Heralds in the Atenveldt College of Heralds; and to All Whom These Presents Come,

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

Please have commentary to me on the proposed submissions for the April Letter of Intent by 20 April 2019. Thank you!

1: Aimée Douglas and Dougal MacPherson the Tall -New Badge

OSCAR thinks the name (Aimée Douglas) is registered as Aim?e Douglas in August of 1998, via Atenveldt.
OSCAR finds the name (Dougal MacPherson the Tall) registered exactly as it appears in July of 1999, via Atenveldt.

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: Orabilis Douw -New Household Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2017, via Atenveldt.

Catwolf Keep

Sable, a chatloup rampant within a masculyn argent.

Keep is an approved household designator found in SENA Appendix E.

The chatloup 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,
