Lure Of The Trickster

I meet a young man who I am attracted to. We have bonded well but he seems a bit unsure of me. On his bare back is a list of all his past lovers arranged in a grid in red and black lettering. Numbers 1 to 3 are vague . One woman's name appears at number 4- "May", then "husband to..." At numbers 6 to 7 or is it 7 to 8 the word SCHICKSTER is emblazoned twice. I know this name is special. A line is drawn under each and a space left at the bottom at 9.

The word "schickster" I know is made up of "trickster" and the german "Schicksal" (=fate).
