saints

Did you know there's a patron saint of doves?

St. David.

Swans have St. Hugh of Lincoln, wolves have St. Ailbhe.

Bears don't seem to have one. Or peafowl, whether peacocks or the golden peahens you sometimes get in fairy tales. Perhaps I shall just have to steal the saints that use them as symbols and make the patrons of the shape-shifters of that type.
