My lady, Alyna Wolfstan, and I have two children, Christine Wolfstan and Isaac Wolfstan. We have a manor named Wolfstan Manor which is located along the
As a warrior, my main style of fighting is with heavy weapons, but I have had some experience with archery and thrown weapons. I have the following weapons abilites: longbow, throwing axes, throwing spears, fighting with spears, great axes, great swords, glaives, hand axes, maces, broadswords with shields both round, heater, and rectangle, dueling shields, as well as flourentine. My personal device is a silver wolf head that is erased and howling to the left side of the shield on top of a gold bend that is embattled/counterembattled on top of a shield that is halved vertically with blue on the right and red on the left. It is emblazoned as: per pale azure and gules, a bend embattled-counterembattled or, overall a wolf’s head erased contourney ouluant argent. (two renditions of this are below)
Our household badge is my howling wolf wearing an english tudor (double) rose about his neck on a fieldless background (fieldless devices can then be placed on any color background). This badge is a combination from both Alyna and my personal devices (see below).
