A Per-SOHN-al Matter

I has a Device! Countess Aikaterine helped me finalize the description of my SCA Heraldry:

Gules, a triangle Sable inverted, within 3 gouttee de Poix in annulo, within a bordure Or diminished (Hint: It's the icon attached to this post).

For those of you not aware, this is (more or less) the symbology I came up with for myself in High School without one bit of attention to actual Heraldic schemes or charges, so it's a bloody miracle we came up with a way to describe it. Also, who knew "triangle" was a valid Heraldic term? I'm not sure if I'm going to insist on it being a cartouche (round shield) or let it be submitted as a standard shield and just use the circular one anyway. I don't expect to be receiving any awards anytime soon *cough* *cough*, so I'm not in any rush to get it registered, which is good as I don't have a name picked out. I've never really been big on the "nickname" thing, so I may just Slavicize "Gregory of Carolingia". Slavicize, you say? Yeah, I'm going with a Russian Persona because A) Of my favorite countries, it's the only one that even existed during Period and B) Every time I see Russian garb, I'm floored by its awesomeness.
