TSivia bas Tamara v'Amberview, Order of the Pelican, 2009

We, Etain and Valfreya King and Queen of Ealdormere do agree with wise counsel that TSivia bas Tamara v’Amberview has for some time been displaying those noble virtues accustomed to be observed in companions of Our faithful and respected Order of the Pelican.  This lady espouses the virtue of Faith through her unbroken oaths, seeking the right and good in all. She espouses Hope through her example and her care for the future of the Kingdom. She espouses Charity in her generous nature and caring spirit for all those in need. She espouses Fortitude through strength of character and action, and Justice through striving to do what is right. She espouses Temperance by seeking the way of moderation, and Prudence through her thought and deeds, governed by wisdom.  As the Pelican nourishes her young with her blood through self-sacrifice, so has Tsivia served her Crown and Kingdom. It has been remarked that this lady’s steps should be imitated; thus We are further encouraged to recognize her as a Companion of Our Order of the Pelican. She shall agree to observe the statutes, laws, privileges and liberties of this noble Order in good faith. We also require that she will uphold the honour of Our kingdom, and will counsel the Crown in things lawful and honest. In return this Mistress of the Pelican shall have and possess, now and hereafter all honors, tokens, titles, burdens and privileges afforded to one of such station, including these Arms by Letters Patent as previously conferred which she may freely and without impediment carry with her both coming and going, throughout all lands. Moreover we will and decree that these things made known on this seventh day of March anno Societatis forty three in Our Shire of Trinovantia Nova be recorded by Our Heralds so that all may know of this worthy accomplishment. As witness our hands and seal.

By Magistra Nicolaa de Bracton
