Harlequin is a comic servant characters from the Italian Commedia dell'arte. The Harlequin is characterized by his chequered costume; his role is that of a light-hearted, nimble and astute servant, often acting to thwart the plans of his master, and pursuing his own love interest, Colombina, with wit and resourcefulness, often competing with the sterner and melancholic Pierrot. Harlequin inherits his physical agility and his trickster qualities, as well as his name, from a mischievous "devil" or "demon" character in popular medieval French passion plays passion plays.

The name originates with an Old French term herlequin, hellequin. Troop of demons were led by a masked, club-wielding giant and they were known as familia herlequin. This medieval French version of the Germanic Wild Hunt (Mesnée d'Hellequin), has been connected to the English figure of Herla cyning ("host-king"). Hellequin was depicted a black-faced emissary of the devil, roaming the countryside with a group of demons chasing the damned souls of evil people to Hell. The physical appearance of Hellequin offers an explanation for the traditional colours of Harlequin's red-and-black mask.
