{Oliver, clad in orange plate armour, ambushes a giant from behind, sword raised over his head.}

The author writes:

I decided to recreate the Kingdoms of Amalur Destiny cards using the LMoO cast, based on their personal colours. The pictures were drawn with pencil, scanned, then inked and coloured using GIMP and a Wacom tablet. The frames are taken directly from the game.

Orange stands for Might+Finesse, or, translated into common gamer lingua, Physical DPS, as it allows you to wield the two-handed weapons while wearing the damage-increasing Rogue garb. One could possibly find an excuse why Oliver fits for this Destiny, but he certainly belongs over to Might+Sorcery, where the Destinies have names like Champion, Paragon or Guardian, which certainly is a lot more in character. While colouring this, I mused about the fact despite that the LMoO cast doesn't have a defined race, Oliver is the only one not drawn as Caucasian. Damn, that's probably going to start a flamewar now.
