Without a doubt, this is the retinue of Herlequin. I have heard from those who had claimed that they had seen them, but I used to mock those who told such stories and did not believe them because I had seen no firm evidence of such things. Now I myself can see the spectres of the dead with my very eyes...

Harlequin's Hunt is a medieval Christian re-interpretation of the Wild Hunt, a European folklore motif that has its roots in ancient pagan traditions. The Medieval re-interpretation sees the Wild Hunt as an Army of the Dead, led by a great Spectral figure, Harlequin. The earlier traditions saw the hunt led by a Fairy King, or even the God, Odin. In ancient tradition, it is usually a riotous, wild hunt, dynamic and full of energy. It takes on a more sombre, war-arch character during the Medieval period. The tinted balm, a bright, cool pink, is inspired by the wild, dynamic energy of the ancient tradition.
