Guided by the FORESIGHT of The Powers That Be, Mallie is able to draw a divine revelation from the manifested shapes within the tea leaves.

The first tea leaf shape manifests as a palm. Malie's aware that this means Tariq has an unusually high willpower, a goal in need of completion. Then...

The second tea leaf manifests as a skull shape. This symbolizes death or, in Tariq's case, his curse. It could be interpreted as the object of divination having harmful intentions. Any gypsy worth her or his salt would tread carefully after seeing this. Yet it's a vague prediction of many paths Tariq could take in his pursuit of the Corpo-Seco.
