The Playing Cards first appear right after Tubalcain introduces himself to Alucard. They demonstrate magic capabilities, as they are able to change trajectory, appear out of thin air, explode, and even create illusions. They are shown to be very lethal, as they can cut through anything from flesh, to steel and concrete. Tubalcain can apparently control the cards telepathically, such as when he made them levitate and circle around Alucard. It is unknown who manufactured them. It is likely Millennium.
