Just two more cards for the complete set of major arcana!

Once I’ve finished, I’ll probably take them into something like Affinity, clean them up, and color them. I have some ideas for the minor arcana, as well.

THE HIEROPHANT - PONTIFF SULYVAHN

Keywords - Upright: Religion, group identification, conformity, tradition, beliefs. Reversed: Restriction, challenging the status quo

Pontiff Sulyvahn is a central figure in Irithyll and a high ranking member of the Church of the Deep, although his religious ties are mostly for his own political gain. He is able to outmaneuver his enemies by being the captain of the outrider knights, and by using his eyes to transform his enemies into mad, violent beasts.

The Hierophant Tarot card suggests that you may be wise to follow established social structures and traditions. You may be involved in some sort of ritual, ceremony, or the trappings of religion. The Hierophant Tarot card represents an institutionalised means for accessing the sacred and is the carrier and transmitter of ancient wisdom and religious teaching. He represents a link between us and the Divine and, for this reason, he is often referred to as the Pope.
