A3m - The Coach

The All Father is the ultimate dad. He is the strong, gentle, supportive father figure to those in need and the ultimate leader/protector of a tribe or society. A hug from him will make you feel absolutely safe, deeply loved, and worthy of the best life has to offer. As a Track 3, all his attention is directed to guiding and guarding those who need it.

 Below you can find the light- and shadow-side characteristics of the A3m archetype.
