The giver of joy! The master of terrors! The ruler of life, who laughs at your death! Here is the Jester, never to leave. A thousands tricks are up his sleeve. He sees you all! Remembers none! All he cares about is fun!

The Jester embodies the coping mechanism that is entertainment. Properly wielded - it makes tragedies softer, work lighter and good times even greater. Abused - it leads to madness, decay, and loss of one's identity. The Jester is both sides of the coin.

While he can wield all aspects, he can only possess one at a time, and is noticeably less potent than other Hours. If his madness would somehow be dispelled, his true aspects of heart and moth would be revealed, and he would perhaps excel at them more.

Description

History

Before the Collision, there was the Spiral, and the -from stone of heart-. Before the imminent doom, these two stood together in embrace - one from mad determination to stop it, and one simply wishing to save everyone. The two faced the oblivion and were consumed by the flames, from which later leaped out the Jester, his laugh echoing across the entire history.

Unseen spy, swiftest assassin, pick of all doors, forger of lives, bringer of wishes, knower of truths, wiseman, historian and patriarch... And yet, all he cares about is making you laugh. All of you. You will all laugh. At him, at each other, at that weird rock, it doesn't matter.

Appearance

The Jester at first took on appearances of animals. Once it grew bored, it would take appearances of renowned swindlers and chimeric beings. Finally, with the invention of actual Jesters, named after it, mind you, it at last had a form that could finally fit. Also, it was from that point known as a he.

Suffice to say, he does subtly change at times. Sometimes, he is a proper court fool - a mad adviser. Sometimes, a cheerful clown. At other times he is a masked soldier that mocks his enemies and refuses to take a blow. At times of need, he is a plague doctor. The list goes on, but there are always draping ornaments, a mask, and some source of laughter. Heartwarming, wicked or mad.

Principles

Entertainment. The Jester believes that every moment spent without at least a bit of laughter is a wasted one. Even if justified, sadness and seriousness are a plague upon both the Mansus and humanity in his eyes.

Secrets

The Jester knows exactly who he is, which is to say, he knows he was birthed from parts of the Spiral and FNORD. He does not, however, acknowledge it. Feeling pain or regret is simply not within his nature. If he could, he would sometimes wish that his originators were still alive.
