Nine of Coins

Maxwell Trvelyan (Male Human Inquisitor)

Significance: The nine symbolises faith and the universal spiritual laws, it represents service to humanity, so it only makes sense to have a human Inquisitor be this card.

Coins 09

The card itself represents: Self-esteem, increase, enjoyment, financial security, retirement, discretion, good fortune, money from unexpected sources, growth and discernment, an appreciation for nature, an upcoming gift, etc.

Reversed: Lack and loss, discontent, imprudence, crudeness, insecurity, fear of loss, having not enough money, financial embarrassment, health issues, monotany, dullness and habituation, loss of valued possessions, etc.

Coins 09 O

A small hoop floats close to his shoulder, near his heart, a sign of his gentle nature despite his authoritarian stance.  Another starlit background represents self-reliance, and the stability and truth he stands for and seeks to find.  A hand on his hip, he is clad in whites and greys; he views for purity, yet knows the nuances that complicate matters as he takes on difficult tasks head on.  He holds up a red-orange flag, a colour of success, creativity, and life, as it flows with the wind, a representation of the ever flowing life that courses through his veins.

What I think this means for DA: In history, with the persecution of elves, with the self-creation of darkspawn, Exalted Marches, etc, human have brought on much death in Thedas, but what if they are the key to saving it and restoring life?
