        Argent, a mouse couchant sable between three ermine spots gules


Alisaundre Quinnye - new device
        Vert, on a bend argent, a cat's face sable between two roses proper
- This conflicts with Vert, on a bend argent, a battle axe gules, Olaf the
Maedi-Ogre.  It also conflicts with Vert, one a bend argent, a caduceus
palewise vert between a sprig of white willow (salix alba) and a foxglove
(digitalis purpurea) slipped and leaved palewise proper, Annalind Airamid
the Healer.  It also conflicts with Vert, on a bend argent, a winged lion
rampant to sinister sable fimbriated argent wings erect argent fimbriated
sable, Beryl of the Valley of the Moon.  In each case there is only a single
CD for the various changes to the charges on the bend.

Bianca Isotta Viscari - new device
        Gules, a sprig of mistletoe Or fructed argent, on a bordure Or three
lozenges gules - The mistletoe was unidentifiable as drawn.  When compared
to a drawing of mistletoe in Rodales' _Illustrated Encyclopedia of Herbs_,
we noted that mistletoe branches are fairly straight.  This contrasts with
the very curvy and reflexed branches, like unto ivy vines, as rendered in
the armory.  Were this drawn in a more identifiable manner, it should be

Fionn the White - new badge
        Azure, a phoenix argent rising from flames gules maintaining an
olive branch vert, a bordure Or - I am returning the badge for a redraw.
The flames are drawn in a modern style.  The flames should be drawn as a
contiguous mass, preferably with alternating tongues of red and gold (since
the submitter's blazon gave flames proper).

Inigo de Gato de Navarre - new name and device
        Per pale argent and sable, on a bend sinister three crosses couped,
pierced, counterchanged - I am returning the name because it does not fit
any Spanish naming pattern of which I am aware.  In particular, the phrase
"de Gato" does not make sense, either in Spanish or as an English
translation ("of the cat").  It has been suggested that Inigo Delgado de
Navarre would be registerable, but we have not been able to document
Delgado.  Dom Pedro refuses to be bowed and may come up with something yet!
Inigo de Navarre would be most excellent.

I (Golden Dolphin) am returning the device for two reasons.  First, the
piercing of the crosses is equivalent to charging them with roundels.
Considered this way, the design has four layers, which is not permitted
under the rules.  Second, since the name is being returned, I must return
the device for the lack of a name, as I am not permitted to form a holding name.
