No, no, Evan! Lady Rosine asked the question of *Triton*, which puts
the answer solidly in the realm of heraldry. Now, if there was an
easy single-digit answer (2, 3, 6, or whatever) the answer would have
been known yea these many years. Since there are obviously more
than 9, and heralds do not count higher than 8, the heraldic answer
is "Semy of angels".
