The Monarch

The Driving Force

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.

Mero the Traitor
  The Monarch is the driving force. It is true antagonist or protagonist, even if it is not the focal character of the story. Though there may be others with greater power pulling the strings, it is the Monarch which truly embodies the concept of its side.
