The Jester is a non-playing character antagonist that is based on DC Comic’s The Joker. He is a Big Bad meant to annoy and challenge my players and their characters. He is an exarch of Maglubiyet and follower of Bane.
He called himself “The Jester” in honor to the Nilbog tradition of each Goblin tribe having one jester. He started wearing bright clothing, painting his face, and dying his hair. He also used his abilities to appear as a Human so that he could fit in a little better on the streets of Baldur’s Gate. It was only a matter of time before he had his own spot staked out in the marketplace doing “magic tricks” acting the part of a clown.
He is main plan in Baldur’s Gate was to use his magic luring children to him and begin indoctrinating them to serve and worship him. He was collecting a cult of children to follow him. He would use his magic to make them love him! He would be like a god!
He was defeated in 1481 DR by a party of adventurers led by brothers Adran and Adras Half-Elven.
It is rumored that the Jester remains in hiding somewhere in Baldur’s Gate, plotting his next big scheme.
