Hmmm. A person in charge would be the "charger"; a "charger" can also be a
horse; a valient war horse can be referred to as a "steed"; successful
steeds were often put to stud;......hey, *I know*!!! Let call the winner
our "War Stud"!!!!

Yes, yes, I know, it's sexist; mustn't have that, eh? I guess the female
equivalent of stud would be brood mare; if she was feeling *really* moody,
she might also turn into a nag, right?  heeheeheeheehee
