The Queen’s cool demeanor is maintained by a mask covering her face. She holds her sword in front of her hiding half her face. The background shows a clear blue sky with white clouds racing.
Swords are associated with air and therefore with thought processes, rationality, logic, mental abilities etc. As the Queen of this suit I imagine her to be cold and unemotional but fair and just. She doesn’t show emotions and lives behind a mask of coldness. She can be ruthless, but also fair and will protect you if she’s on your side. She let’s her sword do the talking. She is blunt and to the point and is not concerned with diplomacy or treading carefully around someone’s feelings. Cuts to the point. Brutally honest.
I also have the sense that The Queen of Swords knows what suffering is all about. She’s been there many times and lived to tell the tale. But she’s is no drama queen. You’ll never hear her complaining, never see her shed a tear, never find her raising her voice in anger. She’s too calm and collected for any of that.
