The tarot is a pack of cards first used to play various games in Europe starting in the mid 15th century. Since the late 18th century, however, mystics and occultists have used the tarot deck to tell fortunes, so it is fitting that the Dust Witch should be known as Mademoiselle Tarot.

There have been many designs for the Tarot deck, especially in recent years, but the card at right -- the one for Death -- is from the 1909 Rider-Waite deck.
