Design Rationale: The wolf head represents the Ashina/Khazer Empire. The Caduceus represents the time I spent in the US Army Medical Corps. It also represents a dragon. Two Reptiles on a shaft with 2 wings representing the wings of the Dragon. I am a member of The Imperial and Royal Dragon Court of which I am a Seneschal. The Anglo-Saxon word "dragon" is derived from the Greek, "to see clearly", hinting at the Dragon's gift of prophecy. Although Dragons were often born out of destruction and chaos, the dragon to some cultures was an emblem of good fortune & perfection. Found in many cultures it became a symbol for volatility, the search for secret knowledge, finding your way through all things, Alchemy, the elements, eternal change, discovery of hidden treasures and the protector of all you possess. Medals: I served in the US Army from 1964 through 1968. I spent one tour on Viet Nam where I received several decorations (Army Commendation Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal). Mantling: The cross is for my believe and God and my ordination. The Sword represents my military service during battle.
