Here are the characters featured on the deck of playing cards in the Collector's Edition:

SPADES
David (King of Spades)*
Sam (Queen of Spades)
Daedalus Club patron (Jack of Spades)**

HEARTS
Malik (King of Hearts)
Helena (Queen of Hearts)
Mephistopheles (Jack of Hearts)

DIAMONDS
Charles (King of Diamonds)
Susan (Queen of Diamonds)
Daedalus Club trickster (Jack of Diamonds)

CLUBS
Simon (King of Clubs)
Kelly (Queen of Clubs)
Daedalus Club patron who talks to David in the Club (Jack of Clubs)

* The traditional Paris court name for the King of Spades card is actually David, after the legendary king of Israel (c.1037c.970 BCE).

** Actually, this dark-haired, red-coated chap I fail to spot even in the Club backgrounds, but he wears a mask and is dressed like the other patrons in the Club. There is a man who wears a similar-looking red coat but his back is to David and he has reddish hair.

Nice.

I can't remember who Kelly was in the game.

What about poor old Mrs. Dalton?

Kelly was Angela's roommate. I wondered why they picked some of the minor characters over Harvey and Angela and Mrs Dalton. They could have put them on the Jokers. :smile:

Although I still like Krss's suggestion of Houdini as the Joker best. Or the Daedalus Club trickster as the Joker and Houdini as the King of Hearts. :bunny: :heart:

Oh, and I think they just chose the young and good looking characters, without any symbolism.

Except for David and Sam, who I am sure were picked for those cards on purpose. Helena also matches happily with the Queen of Hearts.
