  • Comments: Heart of a Teez is a character profile for Tyki Mikk, Noah of Pleasure.

    I felt that the song and it's card suit theme were perfect to highlight Tyki's gambling addiction and the fact that even he doesn't understand his true self. I tried to introduce all of the different facets of his personality individually, the hobo, the lord and the murderer. He tries so hard in the series to live all of his lives separately claiming that it's fun to have a light side and a dark side, but somewhere along the way he lost sight of what he really wanted and what was truly in his heart. Tyki has always struck me as a tragic and confused villain who doesn't really know who he is fighting for and why. But that doesn't stop him from cutting a bloody path through his enemies.

    I tried to keep the spoilers to a minimum, but they snuck in there somehow. I used episodes up to 76 and allude to several character 'deaths.'

    The song in the credits is 'Psycho' by Puddle of Mudd. I had all of these awesome clips that I just couldn't put into a drama/sentimental video and I thought that the song 'Psycho' pretty much summed up the duality in Tyki's personas that I was trying to highlight.

    This is my first ever completed AMV and I'm proud to say that I think I managed to break the rule that your first video always sucks.

    'Shape of My Heart' - Sting

    He deals the cards as a meditation
    And those he plays never suspect
    He doesn't play for the money he wins
    He doesn't play for respect
    He deals the crads to find the answer
    The sacred geometry of chance
    The hidden loaw of a probable outcome
    The numbers lead a dance

    I know that the spades are swords of a soldier
    I know that the clubs are weapons of war
    I know that diamonds mean money for this art
    But that's not the shape of my heart

    He may play the jack of diamonds
    He may lay the queen of spades
    He may conceal a king in his hand
    While the memory of it fades

    I know that the spades are swords of a soldier
    I know that the clubs are weapons of war
    I know that diamonds mean money for this art
    But that's not the shape of my heart

    And if I told you that I loved you
    You'd maybe think there's something wrong
    I'm not a man of too many faces
    The mask I wear is one
    Those who speak know nothing
    And find out to their cost
    Like those who curse their luck in too many places
    And those who fear are lost

    I know that the spades are swords of a soldier
    I know that the clubs are weapons of war
    I know that diamonds mean money for this art
    But that's not the shape of my heart
