Death Arcana (XIII)
The Death Arcana represents foreboding and doom. However, people may also understand it as a deep metamorphosis or drastic change. The death arcana may not mean physical death, per se, but may imply an emotional or spiritual death that can change your psyche. Despite its dark meaning, this card has played a prominent role in the former Persona games.
Death was the main theme of Persona 3. Nyx served as its messenger, sending Thanatos down on humanity. However, Aigis confronted the Shadow before it caused more problems.
Thanatos also made also an appearance in Persona 4 as one of the lurkers inside the chest. If killed, the player earns Thanatos-themed weapons which could deal heavy damage.
Persona 5 brings back Thanatos as DLC. He comes in both Picaro and original forms. The representative for this arcana is Tae Takemi.
When one follows the Tarot Deck and Death suddenly appears, the deck’s nature has changed.
