Katla the Firey, Award of the Wolfs Cub, 2012

All of the kingdom is held in awe
at Ealdormere’s youth here in this hall:
everyone lauds Katla the Firey,
both for her skill and for her finery.

Hear, see, read and understand that size and age are no hindrances to good service and a giving heart. There are children within the Lupine Kingdom of Ealdormere who have served beyond their years and set an example to others. Such a gentle is Katla the Firey, who has been attending events for ten years, engages in various arts and sciences activities culminating in her entrance into the Kingdom A&S Pentathlon this year. Therefore do We, Roak, King of Ealdormere, and Elizabeth, Our Queen by grace and inspiration, bestow upon her the Award of the Wolf's Cub this [day] day of [month], anno societatis [year], while sitting on Our thrones in Our [group hosting event] at [event].

By THLaird Colyne Stewart. Based on Gunnlaug’s poem as recited in “The Saga of Gunnlaug Serpent-tongue” (part 7),circa 1270-1300, as translated in The Sagas of the Icelanders, Viking Press, 2000.
