Every major character in The Incal is based upon Tarot cards – for example, John Difool is based upon The Fool with his name being a pun upon “John, the Fool”. (A small friendly companion, like Deepo in The Incal, accompanies the Fool on his journey.) 
In many esoteric systems of interpretation, the Fool is usually interpreted as the protagonist of a story, and the Major Arcana is the path the Fool takes through the great mysteries of life and the main human archetypes. This path is known traditionally in Tarot as the Fool´s Journey, and is frequently used to introduce the meaning of Major Arcana cards to beginners.
