I ain't saying it's not according to Corpora or fair, just how it
was. The Chiv was considered for a long time to be "more Equal"
than the others and got quite grumpy about some non-fighter
putting on airs like they were a real knight.
Things have changed but you still see reminders of those times.
Non-Chivalric candidates now sit vigil, swear fealty and even have
ritual baths but I wonder about the commentary if that candidate
were dubbed with the Sword and given a Chain of Fealty.
At the same time I think there would be some squawks if the knight
candidate were to be presented with a "Champion's Circlet" composed
of bay laurel leaves because he is a Roman personna.
All the groups have their traditions and regalia they guard rather
jealously. The knights are just a bit more jealous of theirs.

I feel mine will be similar, I'd like to just kind of be out there for people
to talk to if they wish. But I really don't know what the elves have
planned for me.

Ah, the sufferings and sacrifices I do.
