An escutcheon is a headmate that puts up an emotional shield of sorts so that other forces can't hurt them (or can't hurt them as much.) They're often headmates that are described as being tough and don't like the idea of being or being seen as vulnerable.
They often times will try to detach themselves from their emotions in some way, especially if any or all headmates are feeling the same or in a similar way to them. They are often within a system that is open about their feelings.
