So You Want To/Write a Trickster
The Trickster is the character than decieves most of the cast to achieve a goal unknown to the rest of the cast. While tricksters can be both women and men, but I shall be referring to 'he' from now on.
What our trickster wants to achieve can be just about anything, however most common is just for fun. However crafty trickster will make it multiple goals seems plausible when just looking at their actions. Even craftier tricksters will make their actions not make sense considering their goals. Anyways, the trickster has a goal, but tries to make is as difficult to guess as possible.
- Obfuscating Stupidity / Obfuscating Insanity : One of the first things a trickster must make people believe is that he is not capable of achieving the goal he is trying to achieve. This will allow him to move more freely. For a trickster to be most effective he must be smarter than the ones he intends to use, but appear dumber than them making use of Dumb is good
