Greetings from Hossein.
While I certainly do not intend to speak for my fellow Lions, my understanding,
as a member of the Order, is that one is admitted to the Order for both
excellence in persona play and embodying the values and traditions of the
Kingdom. It is for the latter reason that the Lions are entrusted with
the sword of state upon the departure of the King and Queen from the throne
at the end of their reign and present it to the incoming King and Queen only
on the condition that they support and defend those values and traditions.
This is the basis for the title sometimes accorded the Lions: "Defenders of
the Dream." The Lions stand for the values and traditions which make
Ansteorra what it is.
