The Final (and Fiery) Knight

Early on, I decided that I wanted all my Knights to be women... not only because it's one (more) thing to set this deck apart from, so to speak, the pack, but because most of the riding acts in a circus feature, for whatever reason, female stars. Aside from that, it's Just True that women are by far the more courageous of the sexes. True, men are quicker to throw themselves into the path of gunfire, but don't confuse stupidity with courage. 

This card closes the circle and completes the cycle of four female knights.

As the knight of the fiery wands, our rider has a sprouting wooden riding crop, and I made the colors as fiery as I could. She has not yet mounted her steed, but that's about to change.
