In the Silicon Dawn Tarot, the Kings are associated with Air - planning, thinking, intellectual action. The Pentacles are associated with Fire: direct action, impulse, magic. So what do you get when you combine these near-opposites? You get a braggart, a Baron Munchausen. This King is full of wild stories of his successes as a sky-pirate, but it's anybody's guess how much is truth and how much is invention. He's been around the world and to the moon, he's made and lost five fortunes, and he doesn't have anything to prove it but his sixth fortune.

Don't underestimate him, though. More of those brags might be based in truth than you think.

Like the rest of the Pentacles court (except the Prince, who is too young, I suppose), the King sports a tattoo of a dragon. His is front and center on his chest; he wants everyone to know that DUDE MY POWER ANIMAL IS A MOTHERFUCKIN DRAGON!!!!. And he wants to show off his chest, too. There's a bit of seduction to this King; there's a bit of sleaziness to him sometimes, as well. In a different light those pants probably leave nothing to the imagination.

Sometimes a cigar, of course, is just a cigar.

He's the most extroverted of the Pentacles court by far - what's the use of spinning tales of dramatic action without someone to weave them for? He's possibly the most extroverted of the whole deck's royalty.
