The Emperor sits and observes the world from above, seated comfortably in his throne. He holds a golden orb in one hand and a scepter in his right. I see a connection between his crown, the orb and the scepter, all in gold, all representing his position of authority and power. The crown symbolizes his role as leader and also reminds me of one who uses their mental abilities--both intelligence and wisdom--to attain a higher position in society. The scepter is also symbolic of authority; it may represent his ability to manifest creative ideas into actual form (as a wand of sorts). Finally, the golden orb makes me think of power and confidence, influence over others....having the "world in your hands" in a sense. He is a widely respected, though not necessarily well-liked figure, and he is unafraid of using his influence for the greater good. He is perceived as being calm, stoic and rigid, not easily swayed by emotions, and very confident in his role.
