What's the Davion Tartan?
« on: 07 September 2011, 20:47:08 »
Just wondering What do the Davion Tartans look like, I can't recall a description of the Formal or Hunting Tartans in any of the books, to the knowledge of the current PTB's has it ever ended up on the cutting room floor or has it never come up?

Hello,

I'm sorry; where did we say they even had a tartan?

Thank you,

Hello,

Are you quite sure of that? I don't seem to recall it. Sounds like something Davion propagandists would have made up...

Thank you,

The Davion family moved to Scotland from France, where they originated from the town/village of Avion (d'Avion was the original family name, meaning "from Avion").
As such they are not a scottish clan and do not have a tartan associated  with them (unless Bones says otherwise :D ).

With regards,
Øystein

They then returned to Scotland with Marry Stuart (Marry Queen of Scots) where "Later Davions would claim to be of Scots rather than French Blood" (House Davion FASA 1623 p.14).

Hello,

Meh. Rather than go round and round on this one, the bottom line is: No tartan exists that we're currently aware of. I think we sullied the Scots enough when we gave them the Northwind Highlanders, actually. I see no reason to add insult to injury.  ;)

Thank you,
