Long ago, there was an issue of Deryni Archives that had the correct heraldic descriptions for the coats of arms of the major Eleven Kingdoms houses. I'm afraid that my old paper copies of the Archives have vanished in the course of lots of moves. So...does any kind person out there over the aether know the correct heraldic language for the Tolan and Marluk arms? Many thanks!

Deryni Archives vol 2. page 6
"Duchy of Tolan (Charissa of Festil):
Ermine, two lion's jambes Gules,
clawed Or, in chief dancetty Gules,
a jewelled coronet, or. "

"The arms of Talon are exceedingly ancient, although fairly complicated, and represent the entire far north area of the great Torenthi plain. A Deryni mage named Tolan was one of the ancestors of the first Festil who deposed King Ifor Haldane. the Festillic arms, as used by Imre et al., are of an originally cadet branch of the Tolan line, though by the time of St. Camber, there is no doubt that the Festillic line was the more powerful."
There is a drawing of this shield on the cover. If you need it I can scan it in the morning.
I do not see a listing for the Marluk in this issue.

There is the Duchy of Arjenol (Lionel): "Per pale, Or and Argent, three crescents counterchanged. "

I don't see anything in the Codex about Marluk coat of arms.

Although I did find, to my surprise, that Charissa had two elder half-brothers (Zimarek Count of Tarkhan and Mikael Count of Sankt-Irakli) and two elder half-sisters by her father's first (and later annulled) marriage. The four of them were legitimised without succession rights, and both brothers and one sister were presumably alive by 1130 since only one is noted as deceased. Potential supporters for Charissa's cause if anyone needs them.
