Blakes 7 Wiki

The fool was the court jester on Goth. He had an antagonistic relationship with the new charl, Gola, which seemed to make the fool nervous, messing up magic tricks and hand stands. Gola told a visiting Travis to kick him, while the fool made a feeble attempt to attack Gola with a knife. The fool was closer to Tara, Gola's sister. When Jenna and Vila arrived at the tents and became Gola's favourites, the fool became even more bitter and jealous.

The fool turned Gola against Vila by impersonating his voice and insulting Gola, resulting in Vila being taken to the dungeons "below", a fate that the fool feared. However, the fool soon lost favour when Gola accused him of giving Jenna a drink drugged by Tara, having him sent below and Vila released to take his place. There, the fool was reunited with the old charl, Gola's deposed father, and gave him a drink, still calling him his master.

After Gola's death, Blake, Jenna and Vila went to the dungeons to free the pair, but found the old man dying, with the fool singing a lament. The fool told them that Travis had taken Lurgen's brain print. When Blake repeated the old man's dying words, "A fool knows everything and nothing", it caused the fool to recite the location of Star One, implanted in his mind by Lurgen to await the trigger phrase.
