Be careful what you wish for...

 A number of years ago a large fighter informed the throne he should be 
awarded a "Most likely target" award, he had a bad run of multiple hits 
during a war and didn't last 30 seconds on any bout due to the combat 
archers.  At court later he was given a nice (albeit hastly made) medallion 
with a bright archery target on it.  He was now a Lord or the Mark (having 
already gotten his AoA).
