If only they had heads

We're still dealing with simple characters: is actually easy to remember even without mnemonic and all, but this painting serves as demonstration how the mnemonic system works. There's a new actor here: The Queen of Hearts, resembling a pronunciation starting with "qi". Because there's nothing more to the pronunciation, it ends with the Null character, Ø1, which is represented by "outside of the space station". We introduced representations for and earlier, and there's a new item: the Seven-Branched Laser Sword, representing the new character . There are a few characters that appear in; when creating a painting for them, you can re-use the laser sword image.

We already introduced earlier, so next up: nine!
