Patronus (pat-ro-nus): In ancient Roman times the patronus was the protector, sponsor, and benefactor of the client; the technical term for this protection was patrocinium. Although typically the client was of inferior social class, a patron and client might even hold the same social rank, but the former would possess greater wealth, power, or prestige that enabled him to help or do favours for the client.
Muggles and wizards alike of course will know that the Patronus Charm (Expecto Patronum) is the most famous and one of the most powerful defensive charms known to wizardkind. An immensely complicated and very difficult spell, it evokes a partially-tangible positive energy force known as a Patronus or spirit guardian. The charm was primarily designed for defence against Dementors and Lethifolds (living shrouds!), against which there is no other protection.
And what of our company emblem? The Eye of Horus (or ‘Eye of Ra’ as it’s sometimes known). We chose this symbol as the eye is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health. It is indeed our all seeing eye, if you’re travelling the streets of the South West and you catch this purple peeper peering down at you, you can be safe in the knowledge that the Patronus team are patrolling their patch with a beady eye.
So there you have it, what other name could be more fitting for a security company that is able to protect your business and assets with ethereal efficiency? A generic ‘Security R Us’ name simply does not fit the bill for this extraordinary security company.
