  • Badge: Stylized mountain-and-hawk, depicted in red and gold on a field of indigo blue[4] - "a field of indigo, across which a crimson bird stooped to a gold-limned mountain"[5]

Erob's TreeEdit

  • One of Tree's offspring, a Ssussdriad, grows on the grounds of Clan Erob on planet Lytaxin. Korval gave Erob the tree to seal their ancient alliance. From Plan B: "It was a largish tree, Miri thought, with a pleasingly tree-like trunk and nice broad four-fingered leaves a shade greener and a shade less blue than the grass. Nuts or seed pods hung in clusters here and there, and the whole thing smelled good."[6]
    • In Plan B, Val Con and Miri greet Erob's tree. It welcomes them. [7] Later in the book, Erob's Ssussdriad welcomes Shan to Lytaxin. [8] Still later, Tree's offspring gives a seedpod to Miri, for Daav.[6]
