[D6] DECADENCE: The Sinister Demon:
Card of Treachery and Iniquity

Rank purveyor of moral decay
Evil influence, lead astray
Perverting whate'er he see
Trashing all unwanted debris

A pernicious degenerate is perverting
An indignant profligate is trashing

Twisting a baby’s head around like Linda Blair in The Exorcist, this Devil incarnate is the antithesis of his antonymous counterpart, The Altruistic Angel. She is a child nurturer. He is a child abuser. He is pure evil.

The snout of a goat, another satanic icon, also abuses the hapless baby. The downward pointing pentacle also reminds us of the goat’s head symbol of Satan.

The baby has the familiar “666” insignia on his head symbolizing his corrupted state in the hands of Satan. He will corrupt you too, if you let him.

The dangling penis is there to remind us of the oft-times decadent nature of the sex crazed. This is the card of sexual debauchery.

This is the card of self destructive behavior. This is what you get for being as open to influence as The Ignorant Fool that precedes this card, and as weak as the preceding Feeble Victim. You’re his now.
