A member of the Incarnate Hope, the Many-Faced Fool was a cunning trickster and master of intrigue through obfuscation. His entertaining songs, stunts and performances apparently concealed all manner of espionage activities. The rare mentions of the Fool are so confusing that it is not even certain if the Fool was a man or a woman. Some sages claim the Fool was a natural illusionist, others that he (or she) was so adept at disguise and dissembling that no magic was necessary. Speculations about the motives of the Fool are even more fruitless than those about his appearance, but whatever they may have been, actions attributed to him always seem to have damaged Karsen or his invaders in some way.
