Year of Birth: 976.
Species: Human, albeit French.
Jodoque has left a cushy job as court jester for King Groy the Greedy for an
uncertain existence with the gang so he could be with Kel. He is a little too
serious to be a jester anyway. Jodoque can be at times skeptical and
levelheaded, and at other times naive and insecure. Skills include singing and
playing the lute, as well as juggling balls, sticks, knives and Kel's volatile
temper. Jodoque joined the gang in 997.
Like many who have a background in jestering, Jodoque is a fairly serious
fellow, although he does have a jester-like tendency to speak his mind
unthinkingly. Indeed, Faeries and other sensitive beings can spot what's in his
mind before he speaks it, so perhaps that's why he can't be bothered to censor
himself. He is faithful to Kel although he's finding it
hard. This may be why Kel always forgives him.
Little is known about Jodoque Davignon's background, and he's not telling
much. He was born in 976, presumably of French parents. When he was first seen
liberating King Groy from an oubliette in 997, he looked
older than he was, and was dumpy and bandy-legged. The forest air must have done
him good, because just weeks after meeting Kel, he became
the thin, slightly wild-looking man he is now.
As the only man who remained faithful to the King, he would probably have
been considered for a more senior post after the King was restored to the throne
through the actions of the gang. However, after some soul-searching, he opted to
stay with Kel, and is now unofficially married to her, and the father of her
child. Since then, he's become strangely attractive to unattached and sultry
women, a fact which frustrates him no end.
Jodoque now has a job as one of the Town Crier Network, reading the news and
impersonating the authorities whenever an exact quote is needed.
Jodoque is never seen speaking French in public, and prefers beer to wine.
