So Cassandra Jean has finished the complete Shadowhunter Tarot, so for the next … seventy-something days I’ll be posting a card a day (okay, maybe not every day — I tend to get distracted!) in order, from the first card to the last. Some will be under spoiler cuts; some you’ll have seen before — I’ll explain why each character has the card they have.
Sebastian takes the Death card. Death is a card in the tarot that promises enormous change. It seems fitting for Sebastian, who is intent on bringing change to the Shadowhunter world, come hell or high water.
I like that Cassandra Jean has incorporated both the dark Cup and the bones of a horse, considering the passage from Revelations: “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”
