Emelyn's personal badge, marital gonfalon, and household badge.

Emelyn Fulredy is a heraldry zealot and courtier. She currently serves as Boar Pursuivant, a submissions deputy in the An Tir College of Heralds, and previously filled the role of Hazel Leaf Pursuivant (2013-2016). She was the first Bardic Champion of Terra Pomaria.

Armorial research, design, and consulting are Emelyn's primary passions. She also loves onomastics and the "voice" side of heraldry. Her other interests include period music (for voice, recorder, or pipe-and-tabor), scribal arts (mainly drawing), persona development, and backgammon.

Emelyn's charming and friendly husband, Gregory de Munemuth, supports her by chasing their three young sons around. If you see him at an event, please challenge him to a game of chess! Their family and friends comprise Human House.

Emelyn helps with these tasks on occasion, and otherwise is kept busy by running her household, finding a few spare moments here and there to draw, play her pipe, or privately study heraldry.
