Into this house we're born
Into this world we're thrown
Like a dog without a bone,
An actor out on loan..."*

The image shows a surrounding darkness and yellow river - Luck has run out? - flowing off into the distance. In the foreground is a body of a slain man. Ten different swords have been plunged into his body. BLood is spilled. Loss of a battle? even a war (seeing this is the last card of the suit?). The clothing appears to be deep purple (royalty?) Beneath that he wore an orange/gold tunic. It appears snow is surrounding the body - The winter of life?
[Robin's key words]
misfortune, ruin, defeat, failure, pain, desolation, beyond tears, total betrayal, OR end of the above and the beginning of hope. "Culmination of all swords; the end of strife is suggested. Sacrifice and transformation."
