Background

The Court Jesters are generally recruited by Howard Blech during trauma counselling, and the manipulative Blech manages to rehabilitate the troubled youngsters into unbalanced muscle for his clandestine criminal activities. The Jesters come from a variety of backgrounds and most only stay with the Clown King for a few months before being incarcerated or realising that the criminal way of life is not for them. Blech never gives them too much information - only enough to keep them in line and enjoying their new lives.

Personality
All of the Jesters are recruited by Blech and a majority are troubled teenagers who have found themselves in counselling for one reason or another. Blech makes them feel important and able to take control of their lives and strike back at those who have hurt them. The Jesters are generally regular kids and young adults who have been manipulated at a sensitive time of their lives. While most return to their regular lives after short stints with the Clown King, others find themselves in prison or seriously injured. Others decide to stay with a life of crime.

They are usually outwardly cocky and overconfident, but inwardly they still have uncertainties.
Quote
"Laugh it up, while I kick your ass."
Powers

The Clown King has outfitted his Jesters with a state-of-the-art combat staff which is capable of emitting a lethal electrical charge and high-ranged sonic blasts. The staff can also be used to vault over fences and walls. The Jesters' costume is armored and also includes retractable wrist blades.

They also wear a Jester communicator which enables the team to stay in contact with each other.

Appearance

The Court Jesters wear a black and white jester's costume, with three bells hanging from his hat. They carry a staff with a small jester's head and three bells on the end. The costume also contains retractable wrist blades, but otherwise looks much like a jester's costume.

Underneath the costume, the Jesters are regular young adults with a variety of styles, personalities and physical appearances..
