"Surely this red one was the devil, but my devil. That is, he was my joy, the joy of the serious person, who keeps watch alone on the high tower –his red-colored, red-scented, warm bright red joy. Not the secret joy of his thoughts and in his looking but that strange joy of the world that comes unsuspected like a warm southerly wind with swelling fragrant blossoms and the ease of living." 
–C.J. Jung, The Red Book, Liber Secundus - The Red One
Literature: 
The Musicians of Bremen (Brothers Grimm)  
(The story that in part inspired this card, except I traded the rooster for a crow and owl, and the cat and dog for the anthropomorphic fox)
"Taken completely by surprise, the terrified bandits fled screaming: 'The Devil! The Devil!' And their abandoned meal ended up in the four friends' stomachs.
And so the donkey, the dog, the cat and the rooster took over the house without any trouble and, with the booty left behind by the bandits, always had food on the table, and lived happy and contented for many years."
