Pursuivant (Group Herald)
Historically, Heralds were used as go-betweens and diplomats between heads of state and on battlefields. A herald would be able to recognize members of the nobility based upon their arms and colors. There are several types of Heralds within the SCA. Some heralds, often called “book heralds,” help people register their names, devices and badges in the SCA. Other heralds, called “voice heralds,” are those who call out the news, announce people at court, or speak at the tournaments.
