See, hear, and understand by these presents that we, CalumĀ  and Constanza, fourth Baron and Baroness of the Cleftlands hold our subject Clairiel du Vent Argent in theĀ  highest esteem. Her wonderous deeds are the stuff of legend, and her praises sung far and wide throughout the land. She tirelessly maintains the stores of the Cooks Guild ensuring that harmony and order reign over that within her keeping, and her benevolent presence is felt in every Cleftlands feast kitchen and has been so for time beyond the reckoning of mere mortals. In token of this and her ever-so-many miraculous works, we hereby enter her into our noble Order of Saint Clairiel. Given this thirtieth day of May, Anno Societatis XLVII at Dessert Revel in our Barony of the Cleftlands.

Illumination inspired by the the Manesse Codex, 54r and the history of the Goddess Clairiel as related by Baroness Madelaine Bouvier.
