The Hermit is depicted as a character from Minecraft standing alone on top of a pixelated mountain with a lantern in his hand. Mountains typically symbolise achievement, growth and accomplishment. The Hermit has attained his online pinnacle, probably in gaming and is ready to share his knowledge with others. He is also continuing on his chosen path committed to his goal of becoming the ultimate gamer. The staff carried by the Hermit is also from Minecraft and is an emblem of power and authority. It represents the Hermit’s ability to use his isolation and the knowledge he has gained as a tool upon his path to reach even higher levels of ability. The staff is in the Hermit’s left hand, the hand associated with the keyboard, not using the mouse. He wears the grey cloak of invisibility – he’s secrets and abilities are not for everyone, only for those earnestly seeking them and those willing the climb the heights to wisdom.
