Oftentimes courts embark on semi-formal or formal alliances with each other. For example, an Arcana may be asked to be godparent to children of other courts, even if the associated Arcana do not particularly like one another. The Tower, for example, is the godfather of many scions, including all Lady Justice's living children. Arranged marriages between scions also facilitate more permanent relationships between courts,<ref>''The Last Sun'', Chapter 11, South Street Bridge</ref> and can also be used to gain influence with more powerful Arcana, such as the Hanged Man.

Particularly long-lasting and deep alliances between multiple courts can lead to the formation of a power bloc. The Celestial courts, for example, used to be a bloc (Sun, Moon, and Star).
