Jack of [--] Clubs:
The Startling Assassin:
-- Desultory and Virulent

Meandering, apprehensive, shock, surprise
Hindering retardation, flash in eyes
Fatiguing, draining, panic and strife
Consumptive, disease take a life

A hooded man on a rearing horse threatens us with a stave. Behind him lightning strikes. We flinch. What does he want?

He seemed to appear out of nowhere. We are stunned. We are paralyzed with fear. We are apprehensive.

His attitude is very volatile. He seems nervous. His movements are frantic and misdirected, like someone robbing a bank. He needs to take a chill pill. He is like the lightning bolt behind him. Short bursts of wasted energy.

A Perceptual Spirit in a Perceptual Family.

Startling, because, like the 2 of [--] he is indirect and pops up unexpectedly.
Assassin, because, like the 8 of [--] he will drain your energy.

Desultory, because, like the 2 of [--] he is meandering and lost.
Virulent, because, like the 8 of [--] he is a disease that will consume you.

2 of [--]
8 of [--]
