Hey ho! I got the deck last night and have been going through it this morning, plus did my own reading with it- what fun:-)
But on to Felix. The literal meaning of Felix is happy, and he certainly looks it. His masks allow himself and others flexibility in trying on emotions and roles they might not otherwise. The ability to pinpoint his location, to identify and label him, is nonexistent. He is on the move and able to be many things to many people. His craft not only supplies others with masks, but he sets an example by remaining undefined himself. Maybe his face mark reflects how he got this way. Is it a bar code? Or a mark like they give to prisoners to identify them? Or, like Secret Agent Man, did they give him a number and take away his name? If so, he understands how dehumanizing and inflexible a label can be.
