Ooh, interesting thought about Loki! I can definitely see that. And the femininity as well - this Emperor is somewhat androgynous to my eyes, which surprised me. I love how this deck plays with the balance of masculine and feminine in several cards, like we also saw with the Magician.

Interesting that you mention the eyes looking down. That was also how I first saw it, but then it started to look more like the eyes were looking up and were just mostly covered with the yellow light, so the dark spot I thought were pupils looking down were actually the edges of irises. I can still see it both ways, and that ambiguity is interesting. The one looks like anger or disdain, the other like intense focus and being off in his own world. I imagine it could shift depending on the surrounding cards.
