Thanks to a set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens-themed playing cards reported by Making Star Wars, we have what is possibly the symbol of the Knights of Ren, or at least of Kylo Ren himself. In addition, a familiar symbol is listed on a card featuring one of the new Big Three, which may have implications for her future (or even her past) in the sequel trilogy.
Take a look at an image of the cards, courtesy of @ForceCult.
Here we have it all but confirmed that Rey is, or will be in later Episodes, a Jedi. It would also seem that Finn, being associated only with the “Rebels,” is not a Jedi or potential Force user despite his possession of Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber in The Force Awakens (of course, his lack of Jedi affiliation could simply mean he is not a Jedi or Force user in The Force Awakens; his time may come in Episode VIII or IX).

The symbol on Kylo Ren’s card is interesting; rather than labeling it as a symbol of the Knights of Ren, it is referred to as belonging to the Sith. This could mean a couple of different things: The Knights of Ren could be more a form of the Sith, a sort of subgroup of the Dark Side cult, or Kylo could come to autonomously identify as a true Sith rather than merely a Knight of Ren. Either scenario makes sense, given Kylo’s apparent obsession with Darth Vader.

On the other hand, since the Rebels symbol on Finn’s card is, as far as we know, a general reference to the Resistance, the Sith symbol could be a similarly general term for the Knights of Ren. Which brings us back to the Jedi symbol: Does it indicate that Rey is or will be a full-fledged Jedi, recalling the glory days of the old Republic, or will she be something different; a subgroup, as we speculated the Knights of Ren might be?
It’s amazing what information you can dig up from such unobtrusive items as playing cards!
