Mano d'Oro

Mano d'Oro has a number of roles, and can be (very) briefly described as a liaison between the Crown and the Court Herald functions of the College, and mentor for less experienced court heralds.

In particular, various functions performed by Mano d'Oro include:

[Oddr says: I'm certain Baroness Kateline can point out if I've omitted anything important in this summary. Suffice to say, it's an important role at several levels, touching on our voice function as well as our relationship and utility to the very nobles we serve. As such, a successful officer in this role would be expected to have the tact and diplomacy to foster a good relationship with both parties.]
