Symbolism[edit | edit source]
Sanguine to represent patience under pressure and victory as well as the strength of the blood bonds with the armiger's family and those he considers his kin.
The Argent Chief represents a clean sheet of paper which in turn is representative of recognising potential and the planning involved.
The Chess Rooks represent both the armiger's love of chess and games and the leadership and direction he provides others. The rooks are Sable because he always lets his opponent make the first move. The Chevron is representative of a few aspects:
The Argent represents the peace and protection offered by his household, the direction that he strives and a reminder to uplift those around him.
The Plates and their position are representative of the armiger's family's value of spreading their good fortune when they can. This can be as literal as charity or simply sharing their outlook/jokes/time with those within and outside the household.
They are also a light reference to the holy trinity which underpinned his upbringing and continues to influence his outlook.
The entire escutcheon looks like a face, which injects a hint of drama and whimsy. Which is important in life “A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.
The Ram horns on the helm represent servant leadership, which is leading through example and the empowerment of others.
The Barn Owl represents vigilance and wit. It also reinforces the motto as Owls are nocturnal hunters as well as a nod to a childhood toy and the movie Labyrinth which played big parts during the armiger's formative years.
The Quill Pen represents his love of language and literature. It also represents knowledge which the armiger considers the greatest weapon against many forms of darkness.
The Death’s Head is a memento mori, a reminder of his mortality which he has faced several times already. It is also a reminder to live life to the full to cherish each day, not out of fear, but in thanks.
The motto, "Fear No Darkness", is both literal and figurative. This could be standing up to bullies, or it could be about the continuous learning of new things.
