I think one of my best kept secrets is my love of Tarot cards and their meanings and readings and all that good stuff.
|00 | THE FOOL → andrei|
it seems to be the obvious choice, he's the protag but I think the symbolism also works for his role in the plot.
|01 | THE MAGICIAN → the twins|
the magician represents duality and transcendence, themes that fit with the plot line of the twins.
|02 | THE HIGH PRIESTESS → ophelia|

|03 | THE EMPRESS → lenne|
associated with ishtar, isis and demeter; she is both the womb and the tomb. as the rebel factor, lenne can both help and harm. though kind, her anger is scathing.
|04 | THE EMPEROR → the emperor|
another derp one, the emperor represents a need to control one's surroundings; also represents the need to acknowledge somethings are not to be.
|05 | THE HEIROPHANT → fakhr|
lord of the moorish cities, he's a good person who wants the best for his people but he's unwilling to accept differences and tries to mold everyone. his stance on the war is one where he has yet to acknowledge or even think about a future for his people outside of the empire
|06 | THE LOVERS → rielle|
associated with curiosity, eden, and the devil; with desire, and duty, the conflict of which I associate highly with Rielle's character and her plotlines and also character growth,
|07 | THE CHARIOT → genesis|
the man who started it all, he fights for one goal wholeheartedly, cutting down anyone in his path and though he is armored, he stands alone.
|08 | JUSTICE → althyr|
hard for me to justify this one, but I think it fits. she's either this or
|09 | THE HERMIT → tehan|
one of the generals of the alliance army is the one who guides the main party. he teaches them about the old ways and doesn't agree with the war but fights anyways.
|10 | THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE → ???|

|11 | STRENGTH → tenrik|
the head of the fesyri tribes, he thinks of the wellfare of his people before anything else. thus his battle is not an outward one like genesis, but an inward one that comes down to this: to fight or not to fight?
|12 | THE HANGED MAN → ???|
associated with odin, and of course, the crucifixion. "the destruction of self brings life to humanity"
|13 | DEATH → reid|
the card represents an end of a relationship and an increased self-awareness. also being caught up in something inescapable; fate. it's the perfect card for reid...
|14 | TEMPERANCE → ???|
"be prepared for a confrontaton of the deepest questions. who we are, who we think we are, and who we will become.
|15 | THE DEVIL → ???|
"self-bondage to an ideal"
|16 | THE TOWER → ???|

|17 | THE STAR → ???|
"the moment of renewed hope or discovery"
|18 | THE MOON → ???|
the animal instinct tries to crawl out but is forced back into the abyss; but the abyss is always trying to escape, a constant struggle
|19 | THE SUN → ???|
the mind prevails over fear, renewed hope
|20 | JUDGEMENT → ???|
a preoccupation with the past while aknowledging that there is a new begining
|21 | THE WORLD → iris|
fulfillment, attainment, a new cycle. considering what happens to iris, this is her card 100% (wow that is spoilery). it's the one character I was sure of from the begining.
