Arani and chainmail are the ceremonial sign of Ailurian nobility. They're designed to reflect the clan affiliations and social position of the wearer (as well as his or her personality), unless those are so well-known that the noble need not consider them. They're pictured in several of the other Ailurian scenes in this gallery. Photographer and model here are both me.Here we have a pendant torque and a chainmail bracer in the colors and crescent-cradling-circle symbol of House Bekerevan, from which Samrais hailed before he was adopted into Afri's house, Savinnon. He was very relieved to be able to wear chain in colors other than these, which clash horribly with his orange fur. Purple is much less offensive.In any case, this is all copper wire, one kind colored red. The leaves and big pendants are carnelian'the small pendants are garnet.
