Stand before thy brothers and sisters in honor and hold the unity with pride.
Keep at heart the will of The Claw.
Forever shall honesty keep your mind, mouth, and hand.
Support the needed, defend the defenseless, and strengthen the weak,
Walk forth with pride and stand strong before the Claw Code.
Do not pass on anything you have not personally witnessed or verified. Never give unproven hearsay the weight of truth. Never reveal the secrets entrusted to you by kin or Clan. Possession of a wagging tongue marks you as a fool.
What you have HOLD! Let no one take from you, your family or Clan that which is rightfully and legally yours.
Offer forgiveness only to those who are truly repentant of wrongs committed. Offer forgiveness with a joyous heart, for to do so grudgingly is not forgiveness but deceit.
Be known your place of rank. Respect thy fellow member.
Always remember that the fury and excitement of the moment can play havoc with the truth. To keep one's head in the midst of chaos is a virtue.
When you gain authority, use it carefully and with wisdom. Or lose it.
Pledge friendship and your assistance only to those who are worthy and honorable. Denounce those who bare false allegiance to the Claw.
The laws of the land should be obeyed whenever possible and within reason for the protection of your family and Clan.
Dignity, a gracious manner, and a good humor are to be admired and cultivated.
