somebuddy: Another interesting thought. Clown, as used here, is clearly the traditional rather than modern clown, and is thus closely linked to the jester, especially in a Tarot-derived context.
I'm not sure how much of this is relevant to the story, but I found it interesting. The author is telling a unique story yet often adapts other material to fit his purpose, so I skimmed some related sources...
A ruler's jester was often his hidden advisor, spy, strategist, not least because the jester must not be taken seriously, thus could get away with saying the unsayable and do the unthinkable, and thus could challenge and satirize a foolish decision, allowing it to be reconsidered without loss of face.
The best of them were sometimes viewed as having "the unusual power to say the stupidist things, that somehow provoked great enlightenments in a wise listener."
A court jester was often referred as a 'licensed fool', and was often viewed in a light that would confuse a modern person.
In Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, Feste the jester is described as "wise enough to play the fool".
Another one was referred to as "The King's fool and jester, with the power to mock and revile even the most prominent without penalty"
The Fool, the Jester, and the Clown are overlapping archetypes.
Of possibly good news to our protagonist, in some traditions, the Fool(and his variants) stands outside the rules of the normal trumps, and often has the highest effect and value, but is constrained from directly controlling things...
Red and Black, or Yellow and Black are traditional colors for the Jester/Fool, (which might imply a different meaning than the more direct Lovecraftian linkages, but fit a protagonist better)Lord of the Mysteries · C101

Sage_Twoqilin: I couldn't agree more, this novel is up there amongst the very best that Webnovel / Qidian has to offerForty Millenniums of Cultivation · C1041
PhantaPhoenix: First off, in my opinion this is probably one of the top 10 novels on this website in terms of quality.
Secondly, why would a novel being ongoing make it any better or worse, everything is ongoing at some point.
