ARCHETYPES

Simple Character Description - "Faces"


Demeanor: How the world sees this character
The Prisoner
The Prisoner Trapped, restricted, powerless, future determined by outside forces, hope despite grim circumstances
Basic Interpretation:
Lacking chance or choice, the Prisoner sits in his cell at the whim of others. The Prisoner's fate is decided by others; control over life is rests with judges, jury or simple luck. There is hope, but no power to act. Decisions are being made but the Prisoner has little say in the matter.
Nature: How this character sees themself
The Widow
The Widow (Reversed) Grieving process, recovery from a serious loss
Basic Interpretation:
The Widow drapes mournfully over a grave, completely taken with the grief of her lost one. She holds a red rose; perhaps in memory of true love, perhaps as a reminder of what will never come again. This card indicates a loss. This could be a loved one's death, the theft of a cherished possession, or a loss of innocence.
Character Suggestions: A drug addict, a prisoner, a victim, a jailer.
