Jester was one of the very old Overlord's minions.
At first, the Jester used to be one of the Browns, who assisted the "back then" Overlord in destroying the halfling jester who attacked Castle Gromgard (Overlord: Dark Legend). After killing the crazed halfling Jinks, a feisty and rather idiotic brown minion took the halfling's cap and proclaimed himself the Overlord's new jester. In later years, he spent his time yelling out the titles the Third Overlord had collected in his adventures in Overlord.
Overlord EditIn Overlord, the Jester is a ruder and less loyal servant to the Third Overlord (he also serves as the player's introduction into combat). He starts to insult the Overlord by calling him by different names; this leads to the Overlord starting to beat up the cackling Jester. After healing from his wounds, the Jester once again starts to spout out the different titles the Overlord earns overcoming the plentiful adventures. This name-calling happens in the Dark Tower's Throne Room.
The Jester clearly seems to know that something is afoot, so does Gnarl (who does not tell, though), knowing about the return of the Second Overlord. Some of his "titles" for the Overlord, carry a sense of foreboding with them, but he starts says these only if the overlord conquers the mellow hills abyss, meaning its referring to the Forgotten god being nearly ready to escape the abyss:
- "It's all going to plan!"
- "Tread carefully!"
- "... Overlord... Underlord soon!"
- "It is almost complete!" — Towards the end of the game.
After the return of the Second Overlord, he says he believes that this current Overlord was not worthy enough to be an evil being, but after the defeat of the Second Overlord, Jester performs a secret ceremony that sets up the events of Overlord: Raising Hell (it is possible that Jester was possessed by the spirit of the Second Overlord. However, another interpretation could be that the Jester suffered from so much abuse, that he just wanted some form of revenge).
Overlord: Raising Hell EditThe Jester makes a brief appearance in Overlord: Raising Hell, in the chamber of the Forgotten God. Most likely, after his defeat, the Second Overlord possessed the Jester to implement his cunning plan of revenge on the Third Overlord. After the Forgotten God was defeated, the Jester is then seen leaving the Infernal Abyss using the Tower Gate, which is then destroyed, stranding the Third Overlord in the abyss. Since the Jester does not appear with the other minions when they mourn the Third Overlord and has disappeared completely from Overlord II, his fate is currently unknown, but he's presumed to be dead, killed either by the minions or by the cataclysm that happened some time later.
Personalty and Traits Edit
At first Jester was a fun-loving minion, who could talk better than the other minions in a halfling voice. At first he loved the job of jester to the Overlords, but after years of abuse he was driven to madness — ironically, just like his predecessor, the halfling jester. He seemed to prefer and saw his primary loyalty with the Second Overlord.
Jester wore a jester hat that belonged to the crazed halfling jester. He did not use the same jester bell wand and instead had one made out of a skull (this could be the skull of a former minion, a fake skull or the halfling's skull). It should be noted that the hat that this jester gained from the halfling jester, Jinks, seemed to have a dark glow in Overlord: Dark Legend, and it is possible that this hat is cursed, causing the jesters who wear it to betray their master. However, Quaver the new jester in Overlord II, does not wear this same hat. This would explain why these jesters seemed to become crazy or traitors.
