28/10 King of Swords, Sgt. Winner

Graham's booklet says: "The King of Swords, better known to his friends as Sergeant Winner, represents a figure of authority always on guard. He sleeps with his eyes open; he has won a war within himself. He encourages people to express themselves as individuals. Sergeant Winner is a man who regularly hands over his position of authority, letting others try out center stage. He informs the troops of the importance of keeping their distance when it comes to petty disputes.
Divinitory Meaning: The King of Swords helps us find others we can trust. Through him we can allow for our mistakes and to enjoy life.
Reverse Meaning: Intolerant, military."

A King with grey hair, who looks as though he has seen enough battles (both internal and external) to be aware of the high cost of war, and who has learned to choose his battles carefully. He appears to be choosing to bury the hatchet, at present; or has an issue important enough to him to engage in battle over come up and he is drawing it out? Does the skull represent a loss from a previous battle? It can feel like a part of you has died to lose a friend, especially an old one, over a dispute. Perhaps he leaves the skull out as a reminder that too sharp a reponse can severe a relationship.

He is smart, wise and rational. His clear thinking allows him through cut through any type of matter
He has his skull there as a reminder that yes this is a man of war. He has taken a few heads in past experiences and this is no one to sleep on (underestimate). Even in old age with soften eyes you can see he still wields his swords with ease. It took a lot than brute force to get that blade through the table.
