Harlequin MREvo

A lithe breed of Ripper that likes to show off by doing tricks. It wears a strange helmet with rattles on the back of it and has a long ribbon-like tail that allows it to perform aerial stunts. Although it is not as silent as other Rippers, it can be just as hard to defeat.

Etymology Edit

Harlequin is the most well-known of the Zanni or comic servant characters from the Italian Commedia dell'Arte. Its original name (Alkano) is simply a mistranslation of its Italian name, Arlekino.
