It can be a father, in-law, grandfather, uncle, stepfather, an older brother with whom there is a huge age difference or even a husband with whom there is no intimacy.
As mentioned in Kipper 1, the Good Lord is the partner of Main Male in a same gender relationship. If a female querent is having an affair, card number 5 stands for her husband.

When it is not depicting a person, it can be describing the character of someone else in the reading by telling us that this person is going to be supportive in the situation, though the most common meaning of Kipper 5 when it isn’t a person is to announce an important message to come.
