Interesting. When it says "player" does that mean only Heroes or any "figure" (Monsters and other npcs too)?

So the Bola and Orb can only be used once per quest? He does seem rather powerful, but 2 body points, he's also very weak.

On the green orb, players means both heroes and monsters. I dont want i to be to powerful. Merly a possibility to escape or get pass some monsters without being seen. And both orbs can only be used once per quest. Every new quest starts with 1 green and 1 red orb.
I agree, 2 bp are to little, maybe it should be closer to the Elf wich have 6 bp.
The Bola can be used as a normal weapon, No limitations on use. The Bola is also blocked if a hero or monster stand in a adjacent field to the Harlequin.
It can not pass or go over a adjacent player.

Harlequins are a specialised type of masked dancing jester (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harlequin).

The Eldar in 40K (Space Elves) have Harlequins, which are a bit like Wardancers in space. Wardancers are common in Wood Elf armies (https://warhammerfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Wardancers).

Dark Elves have a number of units similar, but not identical to, Wardancers - Black Ark Corsairs (Dark Elf Pirates), Sisters of Slaughter (Dark Elf Gladiators), and Witch Elves (Dark Elf Witches) (https://warhammerfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Dark_Elves#Military).

The High Elves, being nobles, don't actually have any units like the Wardancer (https://warhammerfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/High_Elves#High_Elf_Infantry).

I hope this helps with some flavour, and remember, if the Elves can do it, then chances are some Humans in the Old World will do it too.

Of course, if you see wardancing as more of a martial art, then perhaps they come from somewhere like Nippon, Cathay, or Ind?

Could have sworn I saw a few of these in "The Nutcracker"... a ballet which famously features toy soldiers fighting wicked mice...

Hmm... quasi-magical manipulative uncle spinning up an adventure (Mentor/Zargon)... Skaven... sounds like a good time to me!
(the version I remember best). many cool performances online showing their agility and skill
