I love this interpretations of the "jacks." Alternately, I had simply conceived of them as representing literal people, upon whom the Judgement is being rendered. In the Marseille tradition, this card features three human figures at the bottom: one on either side facing "out" toward the viewer (behind a table in fact), and one in the center seen from behind in the foreground.

The Tyldwick card shows the two faces present on both sides, which means the missing center one is... myself! Many of the cards in this deck "pull me in" to mentally occupy their empty spaces, but this revelation immediately felt like an uncomfortable and inexorable call, an almost physical tug towards the center of the card. Odd, as it had made no particular impact on me either way before that!
