say what Phil and Kaja have written down in their GG world notes on
it. We assume it means an airfleet or connection to Wulfenbach because
his sigil changed when he came back and built the flying fortress to
replace his own lost castle. It COULD mean that the house fought in
and survived the 'Other War'. Proudly proclaiming "We fought The Other
and we are STILL HERE." This would explain Agatha's use of the wings
later and House Swordspocket's. Another house symbol bearing te wings
would support this. Guess I'll have to wait.

But as far as I can tell, Aaronev himself is the only Swordsprocket with a
winged sigil. Tarvek and the architecture are wingless. By contrast, I think
all Wulfenbach sigils are winged towers these days (vs. the old plain tower),
except for Gil wearing nothing (or a simple Celtic knot, but it might not mean
anything) and bat-winged towers for the Jaegers (along with their own fanged
Seems simplest to assume Klaus's wings mean "Castle Wulfenbach is fallen, Long
Fly Castle Wulfenbach". This doesn't preclude other people using wings for
their own purposes -- "I'm a ruler" or "I secretly follow Lucrezia" for
Aaronev, "I tell my constructs that I'm a goddess" for Lucrezia.

Don't know that I've ever seen a bat-trilobite, though.

Heterodyne sympathizers, isn't it?
