Exclamation The Tarot of Vampyres - Interesting findings in the Minor Arcana


I have noticed similarities among the minors so I've decided to share them in case anyone find that interesting.

Aces

All the aces have roses and thorny branches in the back. Each suit gets its own color.

Threes

Two of the cards have boats in the back: Three of Scepters and Three of Grails. Three cards shows a female vampyre: Three of Skulls, Three of Scepters and Three of Knives.

Fours

Two cards have indoors scenes: Four of Scepters and Four of Grails. Three cards shows a couple: Four of Skulls, Four of Grails and Four of Knives.

Fives

On three cards the vampyres have conflicts/fights with their suit animals: Five of Skulls (werewolf = wolf), Five of Knives (black winged being = raven) and Five of Scepters (black panther). The Five of Grails shows a mermaid (snake) but we're not sure if she's the victim or the aggressor.

Sixes

On all cards a vampyre appears in harmony with the animal of their suit. On top, the Six of Grails and the Six of Scepters have a glittering thingy of front of each vampyre, each bearing the color of their suit.

Sevens

On all the cards there is a female vampyre partly transformed into their suit animal.

Eights

On all the cards there is a male vampyre depicted.

Nines

On all the cards there is a big full moon. Three cards shows a female vampyre: Nine of Skulls, Nine of Scepters and Nine of Knives.

Tens

On all cards there is a female vampyre. On two cards the vampyres are pierced by their suit "weapon" and have wounds: Ten of Knives and Ten of Scepters. The two others are drinking cups full to the brim.
