Company of the Defenders of the Tower

Awarded to Dillon ap Dillon

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2019-06-01

Were We to praise, were We to sing,
The lay would cause high shoots to spring up,
Stalks like the arrows of Dillon ap Dillon,
Inhumanly accurate,
Piercing and breaking through,
With the ability to descend
To every daring enterprise,
Through nail, through snare,
Through trapdoor and fetters,
And gold spread abroad.
With strength and speed
Will his graceful bolts fly,
As swift as sprites move
On a pleasant lawn.
More powerful than the highly-honored lays
Is Dillon ap Dillon.

Thus do We, Kasha and Ermenrich, Baroness and Baron of Cynnabar, name him to Our Company of the Defenders of the Tower.
Let none countermand Our words.
