The Harlequin is definitely one of my top five Tricksters.
In the Commedia Dell’arte he was always the trickster in the commedia, with his mask and wand and diamond covered attire, he would play invisible pranks on all those around him.
What’s even more interesting is his transformation into a romantic hero in later years. He dropped his trickster personae and the Harlequinade was born from it.
