Caulbearers, born 'in the caul', or 'with the helmet' as we say in the Netherlands, or 'con manto' in Spanish or 'a coifa' in Portugese, 'w czepku urodzony/a' in Polish or 'родился в рубашке' in Russian - no matter where you go (or went) everywhere it means pretty much the same thing; you are born lucky, the people around you, especially your mother, is lucky to have (had) you and you are destined for greatness.

Also are or have probably been a visionary, a prophet, someone who's third eye is open by nature. This was not always and everywhere valued positively, by the way. But in general it was considered an asset, probably because the good-fortune belief never really vanished (here I imagine something like 'okay, we should burn you at the stake you freakin' WITCH, but we'll keep you around for a while to see if that good-luck thing brings us any, ehm, luck).

In Romania, or the whole of medieval Europe, but at least in Romania, Caulbearers were considered to be destined to something else as well: becoming vampires after death...

What a pretty flower, isn't it?
