Heraldic Ranks and Titles in Caid
In Caid, the only heraldic titles which carry a rank are Crescent and Dolphin. For all others, the rank used is that of the current holder of the
title. For example, Aurum could be the Aurum Herald, Aurum Pursuivant or Aurum
Macer, depending on the officer's personal heraldic rank. Here is a more detailed description of the different ranks, and the College's policy on rank advancement.
The ranks currently used in Caid are Herald Extraordinary, Herald, Pursuivant, and Macer. "Herald" (capital "H") is
a title, while "herald" (lower-case "h") can refer to
anyone who is practicing heraldry.
