Upright: defending beliefs, intense focus, obsession
Reversed: impatience, hostility, warpath, lack of direction
The Knight of Swords charges ahead over a hilly landscape. They ride a white horse, barely holding onto the reins, while holding a sword up high. Both the Knight and the horse have determined looks on their faces. The Knight wears a red cape over their armor, and red feathers stick out from their helmet. Storm clouds begin to form in the blue sky and a strong wind shakes the trees in the background.
