The Devil Tarot Card isn't about the devil in a biblical sense, but in the way of the devil in the details. The power of the things we dare not reveal or talk about. What will your fortune spell when you draw this card?

The Devil In I

The Devil Tarot card is about the parts of life we don't want to talk about, the things we can't admit we do. The taboo. The seduction toward untameable power, toward indulging the shadow within us all. On Tikor there is only one figure that fits that.

Xavian. The Withering King.

Waiting, patiently, is an entity unlike anything life on Tikor has ever dealt with. Is Xavian evil? Some would say so. Some would say he's merely being what he was meant to be. A corrupting force in the universe, a cosmic balance to Ishvana's growth.

That being of cosmic strength is trapped, in a dimension attached to Tikor, Beneath it All. Or is it a trap? Perhaps Xavian, the devil of Swordsfall, isn't so trapped after. Maybe he's just waiting, bidding his time. Watching the humans of Tikor indulge in their darker sides. Making them a step closer to hearing his seductive, and destructive whisper.
