Rejoice For You Are True
Aristarchus had a set of Tarot cards that were clearly corrupted in some way. You managed to recover a single, damaged card. You could tell that it contained some kind of circuitry inside of it, but Hextes was unable to ID it. It is probably non-human in origin.
Aristarchus told you that he had been given the cards a long time ago by a servant of the Emperor. It is unclear if that was the truth, or if Aristarchus even knew the truth. What is clear is that the cards were an instrumental part of the Dancer at the Threshold’s plan to dominate Aristarchus and manifest fully.
