Philippe de Dauphiné
Argent, a dolphin haurient azure finned gules, on a chief enarched azure an arrow argent.
Lord Philippe, commonly known as "Flip" started attending Estrella War in 2005 but became more involved in the Society when he started participating with Sun Dragon in about 2013. Flip is member and founder of the Horny Horses Household. Flip was a reluctant recruit to the SCA as he felt it was a lot of work for camping. However, once he found his niche in archery, he's grabbed on and never looked back. He primarily became involved due to the love of his wife, Aurora Faw.
While Flip primarily is knowne for his skills with archery, he is also an excellent cook and has started dabbling in period cooking. In addition, his skills for making challenging and new archery targets have abound in the local community and he's often helping volunteer his time wherever needed. Flip is just starting to learn to make arrows and is wanting to get into making meads as well. He also has some super secret plans in the works that just can't be revealed as of yet.
What's in a Name
Originally when Flip was picking a name, he choose the name Blookwalk. Not only did he just make it up out of nowhere, everyone kept trying to call him Bloodwalk. He then decided he wanted the Mongolian name of Batu (which he was using as an acroymn for Blookwalk And The Unicorn) with the last name Kharbuci meaning "archer." But he had almost immediate buyer's remorse. As he had played with the SCA for too long and people were still calling him "Flip" he decided to go with Philippe de Dauphine, since it was close to Flipper the Dolphin, also a longer version of his real nickname. Those heraldry puns are so much fun!
Based on his name alone was a 15th century French persona, however, he's decided that he's late period French since he loves cooking with tomatoes and tomatoes were thought to be poisonous due to being related to the deadly nightshade until the late 1500's.
As you can well imagine, when he researched the Prince of France that used the title of Dauphine, from the province of France, he found the heraldry which included the heraldic dolphin that looks like some sort of weird fish. He immediately decided he wanted that on his arms along with his white arrows for his archery, thus his heraldry was born.
