This one started out as a stupid idea, but then I got waaaay to deep into it. You know, like always. Today's Topic: Symbolic Fruit!
So, as most of us players and collectors of cards have noticed, Lucifer is often associated with apples, mostly for the symbolic representation of Adam and Eve taking a bite of the Forbidden Fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, which led them to get kicked out of Paradise.
We all get it. But what are the other's symbolic fruits?
From what I've discovered Asmo is often depicted with strawberries. As seen here:
For those who're wondering, strawberries in the Middle Ages were often seen as a symbol of temptation, pleasure of love, tender flesh, and sensuality.
Yet somehow, they're also a symbol of purity and righteous.
Which given Asmo's whole sctick as the Avatar of Lust, one would think that this clash of symbolism wouldn't make sense. But, it actually does.
Asmo himself may seem like a hypersexual narcissist who flaunts himself as the most perfect creature in the world, but he's also a person so desperate to receive real love and admiration, that he's completely blind and naive to the fact that his brothers, MC, and everyone around him love him for who he is, not for what he looks like.
Heck, he becomes completely shell-shocked whenever we or anyone else tells him as such!
But getting back on track, known of the brothers have any fruit-related cards from what I've seen.
I wonder if any of them would have an apple as their default fruit since they're all brothers to Lucifer.
Perhaps Mammon would have a golden apple.
Not only is he second brother only to Lucifer, but golden apples usually represent wealth, prosperity, power, and knowledge.
I don't know, I think giving them ALL apples would be kind of repetitive. So I'll leave you guys to ponder the rest.
