The Captain Of The Guard Card, is Zakky MC’s adaption of the Three Of Pentacles (original) Tarot Card. As you can see by the many different edits of the images, the Coloured Card has been tossed around the promotional department for many different versions of my books (that are all the same damn story.)

The story incorporated from my book – A Fall Of Pharaohs – surrounding this “colored card” is best described from the following text:

The sound of rifles being loaded, and the clicking of safety mechanisms being turned off, grabbed the witch’s attention. Willow turned to find she and Kurtis had ten guns aimed at them. Nauman Bible stepped between the line of fire, her high heels clicking against the marble floor. “Because Our Holiness – Claire of the 13th age – hates nothing more than the narcissism of looking into her own reflection. Red guard, take them away!”

Page 131, A Fall Of Pharoahs

Please note: I’ve got no idea what Nauman Bible is talking about. (I don’t know where this paragraph is going, to be honest.) Nauman Bible is the Captain Of The Red Guard.

Salazar and Nauman stopped at the door, Salazar went to unlock it, but Nauman told her to wait. She wanted to examine it. “Willow and Vivianna were screaming that the doors have faces… I don’t understand. I can’t see anything.”
“Oh, you’ve gotta hit them first,” Salazar explained, “give the souls a shake.”
“You know about this?”
“Pfftt.. Everyone knows about it. They’re the canvas curse. All the doors are. We would break them but we’re scared of the consequences.” Salazar gave the door a gentle slap and the canvas curse appeared as a black and white painting with colours of red, blue, yellow and green flowing through it’s parchment. Jordan’s face appeared.
