This is Sanyo news! The warmth of summer has just arrived, the odd chill that was spring is now gone! We got some strange news for you rumor mongers though. It seems that there is a cherry blossom tree atop the Bubble. All attempts to have it taken down seem to have failed. For now it still seems to be under investigation.
[attr="class","infoBody"]What is an Arcana? An arcana is one of the classifications of the Major Tarot that one is associated with. Everything has an arcana be they Persona Users, Demons, Shadows, or Guardians. While an arcana might define an archetype one person associates themselves with, like the concept of an archetype, one's arcana can be subject to change (be it through character development and so on). As such one does not necessarily always have to remain a certain arcana. One should note that one can be associated with a reversed arcana, one with an opposite meaning than the arcana's normal definitions.
[attr="class","infoBody"]"The Arcana is the means by which all is revealed..." Here are the available Arcana, while some cards have specifically named reverses (The Jester being a reverse of the Fool) This does not stop you from your character from having, say, the Reverse Magician arcana. Some have confirmed alternative names (like Strength being Hunger (even if Hunger has a slightly alternative meaning), Death being Nameless, and Judgement being Aeon).
Faith One who has a belief in others, one's self, and/or a belief. They are those who must endure for themselves and for their beliefs and resist second-guessing to their detriment.
Hope One who is filled with hope. They are a renewed spirit that creates inspiration for themselves and those around them that continues on regardless in a path of success or a path of failure.
Charity One who is filled with generosity. They are those who work to one day be able to provide altruism that hopefully transforms strangers, maybe enemies, into friends.
0. Fool/Jester One who is just beginning a journey, they are presenting of one who is filled with innocence, freedom, inexperience, chaos, and creativity. They are clueless to where their destination might be heading but they journey on none the less, even if it is off a metaphorical cliff, with only what they encounter on this journey and their own instincts as a guide.
The Jester is different in the fact that it is one who pretends to be the Fool, a "clueless" one to escape something be it a label or a hardship.
I/1. Magician/Councilor One who is filled with power and imagination to take action but is shackled with great immaturity. What makes them different from the Fool is the power and imagination being used for a singular goal but has to be aware to not be too impulsive or manipulated(which they tragically fall into easily).
For the Councilor; all their motivation is used to tap into their potential goal of diplomacy and guidance.
II. Priestess One who is wise, patient, and mysterious. A mystique that hides untapped power toward their goals and aspirations. She listens to her intuitions and intellect in contrast to the showmanship power the Magician possesses.
III. Empress One who is motherly and nurturing. They are those who possess what may be considered to be feminine traits in regards to caring for others such as active comfort and protection. Be warned that they can take away this comfort and protection if they feel those under their metaphorical umbrella are undeserving it of it.
IV. Emperor One who is fatherly and brings order to their surroundings. They are those who possess what maybe considered masculine traits in regards to caring for others such as the use of their strength or emphasis of a set of rules or code. Be warned that this desire to command their surroundings can lead to trouble.
V/5. Hierophant/Apostle One who is conservative and respect for authority, rules, and education. Instead of innovation, they adopt to the beliefs set out by the society or situation that they are placed in and will do what is expected of them to benefit that society or solve that situation.
VI. Lovers One who has to make a choice, especially in regards to the people around them. They must often have to seek agreement with different people or awkward elements around them.
VII. Chariot One who has achieved victory and conquest. Be warned that this achievement has the risk of being short lived or risk transforming into a defeat.
VIII. Justice One who is rational and uphold justice. They must take the actions of themselves and those around them into account in order and adjust themselves to bring only fairness to all.
IX. Hermit One who is wise from the introspection gained in isolation. A need to understand not just the whats in their lives but the whys as well.
X. Fortune One whose fate is decided by luck. They are often traversing through phrases constantly and are blessed by the good as they are cursed by the bad.
XI. Strength/Hunger One who is on a quest to obtain self-control, courage and virtue of a metaphorical beast. They often need to exercise responsibility with their power.
Thus, comes the Hunger, the result of that lack of responsibility. One who feels euphoria from the abuse of their power.
XII. Hanged Man One who is reflecting over their actions. Those who are self-sacrificial for the sake of enlightenment. They take the suspension of action and time in order to ponder the behaviors and habits that restrict them and how to be free of them.
XIII. Death/Nameless One who is to go through great change. They give up what is old about them in order to make way for new. The change can be foreboding but it is a metamorphosis and regeneration.
XIV. Temperance/Art One who is in harmony. They can accept various opposites. They are moderate and patient and as they take time, take in whatever changes or obstacles happen along the way.
XV. Devil One who is a slave to their impulses. One might say that they have an addiction or that they are materialistic.One cannot deny one thing about them and that is they have an attachment towards what they wish to hold.
XVI. Tower One whose pride shall be their downfall. Great disaster shall soon be upon them. This disaster is sudden but in the wake of it, a great revelation can occur in their fall. If it would lead to greater change or worse disaster is up to them.
XVII. Star One who is filled with hope. They are a renewed spirit that creates inspiration for themselves and those around them that continues on regardless in a path of success or a path of failure.
XVIII. Moon One who is filled with creativity; however, that creativity is inspired by tragedy and paranoia. They are insecure and anxious of their surroundings as they project their fears in the present and future.
XIX. Sun One who is filled with positivity. They are optimistic about themselves and the future. Even if failure or misfortune should happen, they are still filled with that brilliance.
XX. Judgement/Aeon One who has gained great insight and acceptance of them-self and life. They have reached a significant stage of their life's journey and it is now that their wisdom and experiences is put to the test to see if they can avoid the pitfalls they once fell in.
