The Tower

The Silent 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.

Of these four the Tower is the high observer. It is the unseen force, the faceless crowd, the quiet affector. They are never the protagonist.
Mero the Traitor
  The Tower is the quiet law, the reflection, the amorphous force. It understands things on a deeper wisdom.The tower is the tower because it has been the Champion, the Monarch, and the Hierophant at points throughout its life.
