The Carpa Virtus ("the Hand of Valor") is the highest honour available to a lamplighter. Aubergene Wellesley received the Carpa Virtus in recognition of his deeds in helping rescue the middle daughter of the Warden-General of Haltmire from monsters in the Ichormeer in the early HIR 1590s.

TriviaEdit

The name appears to be derived from the Latin words carpe and virtus, which together translate as "enjoy the power of". Virtus specifically was a virtue in Ancient Rome. It carries connotations of valor, manliness, excellence, courage, character, and worth, perceived as masculine strengths. It was thus a frequently stated virtue of Roman emperors, and was personified as the deity Virtus.
