He became interested in the new art of Heraldry, which led to him being chosen as one of those sent to Brittany to escort the beautiful Yolande de Dreux, Duchess of Brittany, back to Scotland to marry Alexander III. Pedair remained in Queen Yolandes household when she returned to Brittany after the death of Alexander. Currently he wanders the Tourney Circuit as Herald to Her household Knights........... ..........
