These cards show Latinized versions of the names of the characters. In Latin, the letters i and j are often pronounced like the y in yes when they appear before a vowel in one syllable. The word iubet (meaning they are commanding) sounds rather like the English phrase you bet. So Japanese "y"s are rendered on the cards as Latin "j"s. Japanese "k"s are rendered as Latin "c"s Japanese "chi"s are rendered as Latin "ti"s, and Japanese "shi"s are rendered as "si"s.

Ministralis is an adjectival form of minister (male who serves another person) and ministra (female who serves another person). The words minister (masculine) and ministra (feminine) may be translated as follower or attendant.

Abeat means let he/she/it go away or may he/she/it go away. Abi (said to one person) and abite (said to more than one person) means go way" (direct command).

Adeat means let he/she/it come or may he/she/it come. Come forth or come (direct commands) would be adi (if you are telling one person to come) or adite (if you are telling more than one person to come).

A pactio is an agreement, a pact, or a paction. A possible Latin adjective for this would be pactionalis.

Tonus means color tone. The list of colors are:

rubor - red
album - white
caerulum - sky blue
luteum - yellow
viola - violet
nigror - black
roseum - rose-colored
cyaneum - sea blue
argentum - silver
aurum - gold

Virtus means virtue. Directio means direction.

Astralitas is meant to pertain to a person's association with a guardian planet. In astrology, even the Sun and Moon are considered planets. I have decided to translate astralitas as star affinity. Here are some celestial bodies: The Moon (Luna), the Sun (Sol), Mars, Venus, Mercury (Mercurius), Jupiter, Saturn (Saturnus), Uranus, Neptune (Neptunus), Pluto, comet (cometes), shooting star (fax), starry sky (caelus sideralis), and black hole (nigrum foramen).

Lastly, the words "Charta Ministralis" at the top of each card means "Official Record".
