Brotherband Ensigns

When young Skandians are about to be initiated into the Skandian society as young warriors they first need to pass through a series of tests.

They pass (or fail) these tests in groups of several boys, known as Brotherbands. One is the skirl, or captain of the ship and the others take a position below him.

Notable Brotherbands in the series are the Herons and the Sharks.
