Introduction

Compiler of Silverwing's Laws, Master Steffan is a companion of the Orders of the Pelican and Laurel and a baron of the Court all in recognition of his decades of devotion to the College of Arms and accurate crafting of period ceremonies - especially coronations in diverse cultures.

Persona

Current persona started out as being in the train of Henry V, maybe Henry IV before him. But I dress rather earlier than that, so I’ve really moved back. “During the 100 Years War”. Let’s say more Poitiers than Agincourt. I’m nominally a herald, trained in the law (Inns of Court, I read Roman law at Padua, and I have an interest in the ancient Welsh law). I think of myself as somewhat like Erpingham in Henry V, an elder statesman of sorts in the periphery of royalty.

Offices & Positions

  • Brigantia Principal Herald January 1981 - July 1983.
  • Steffan was created a permanent Visiting Carolingian Fellow of Philosophy to the Barony of the Bridge (briefly called 'Carolingian Scholar of the Road') in AS XXXIII.
  • Member of the first faculty of the Community College of Arms of Bridge (CCAB).
  • First holder of the tenure of Stuffy Authenticist, an office in Bridge.

Event Staff
