The Keeper of the Cause
Every tale has them: the Champion, the Monarch, the Hierophant, the Tower. The great tales have them twice, once each in the light and the dark, the pro and the con, the agonist and the constructivist.
The Wheel is cyclical, it sees no good or bad. Its language is one of life, but for life to be there must also be death. There is no distinguishing between destruction and construction when they all lead to the same ends.
Of these four the Champion is the trusted protector. It is the force which protects the Monarch and fights for it, demonstrating a courage even the Monarch itself may not have. They are sometimes the protagonist.
The Champion is the driving force. It stands for the cause, even if the cause is not its own. It is the right-hand-man and the one left standing. It might not be the strongest, or the wisest, or the smartest, but it is the most stubborn.
