The Octopus has always captivated my imagination, and imbued me with a sense of wonder and respect. A highly intelligent animal, it is the only invertebrate known to use tools, and has the ability to rapidly contort the shape, size, and texture of its body to adapt to its surroundings.

I crafted this sigil as a representation of my values and traditions. The Octopus, a clever shapeshifter, carefully wields the pen and the sword in counterbalance, while steering the helm of life’s ship.
