Order of Saint Barbara of Cynnabar

Awarded to Keah

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2019-06-01

You, Keah,
Did not lose your way in the fog,
Did not forsake Us in the battle.
When it was wet, we bore the wet together;
When it was cold, we bore the cold together.

When, apart from Our shadows, We had no friends,
You were Our shadow.
You eased Our minds,
So in Our minds you shall stay.

When, apart from Our tail, We had no fat,
You were Our tail.
You eased Our hearts,
So in Our chests you shall stay.

Thus We, Ermenrich and Kasha, call you a friend of Our people, of the Order of Saint Barbara of Cynnabar.

Let none countermand Our words.
