Hellequin by GENZOMAN Hellequin by GENZOMAN
A very old draw, 2006 or so. Is clearly somekind of medieval The Joker, but there is more... The Hellequin is a not well knowed french myth and the origin of our modern "Harlequin" why? wanna know?

LET´S WIKIATTACK!

Hellequin (also Helething, Herlequin), a stock character in French passion plays, is one of the suggested origins for the modern Harlequin. The physical appearance of Hellequin offers an explanation for the traditional colors of Harlequin's mask; red and black.

Hellequin (The devil's horsemen), a black-faced emissary of the devil, is said to have roamed the countryside with a group of demons chasing the damned souls of evil people to Hell. The name has a Germanic etymology, from harii "troops, host", and thing "moot, assembly", suggesting an association with the Wild Hunt in Germanic paganism, first described by Tacitus in terms of the Harii who fought at night taking the appearance of an army of ghosts.

PSCS/Grapphire2/Music : Hellequin - Therion (Thats why I love Therion songs, som many myths there, also this song rocks alive)

LYRICS:

Harlequin
Hellequin
Trivelin
Arlecchino
I'm harlequin
Take off the mask
In the feast of the night
I'm going to appear
Dancing with you in the labyrinth
All through the night
In the wild hunt
And chasing your fear
I am a Devil in Hell
Dante could tell
I am one of thirteen
Harlequin, jester of Hell
Harlequin
Hellequin
Trivelin
Arlecchino
I am the hellequin
My mask is red and black
(I'm) The sneaking devil
The emissary
I bring you to the play
Into the masquerade.
I am the devil.
I am the winter dream.
You are ensnared in the harlequinade
Yes, ride the bull on Saturday night
Wear triangular patches in the comedy.
Hail, Capricorn and the Fairy Queen.
Wear the black mask (of) Arlecchino
Join the wild hunt (and) enter Saturn
Hail the Elf-King.
I'm harlequin
Take off the mask
In the feast of the night.
I'm going to appear
Dancing with you in the labyrinth,
All through the night,
In the wild hunt,
And chasing your fear.
Harlequin, jester of Hell.
Malebranche, thirteen we are.
Odin's followers.
