This person’s freedom is so important they would rather go as a peasant among strangers than inherit a fortune with strings attached. Don’t be fooled by this humble appearance. This person is a future captain of industry or world leader, now serving an apprenticeship. These people are sometimes seen planting a staff like a flagpole into the earth in the far off wilderness (where they can start fresh without having to make any compromises). You could think of this card as a wild card.
