words with an individual, as They had directed. The Order having
answered affirmatively, and Their Majesties and the Order being in
agreement regarding the individual's accomplishments, Their Majesties
requested the attendance of Master Creature Twyne Dragon. Their
Majesties asked Master Creature whether he would accept elevation to
said Order, and receiving Creature's assent, asked to hear from
others. After hearing the words of Their Excellencies, Judith of

Creature's lady wife. Their Majesties also called for a mantle,
whereupon a most wondrous hood in the form of a fish, made by the

fish-hood was not appropriate, a second, more formal hood was also
presented. Their Majesties then created Creature Twyne Dragon a
Companion of the Most Noble Order of the pelican, and Master Creature
reaffirmed his pledge of service to Their Majesties and the Kingdom.
