Quick Reference

A fool or buffoon introduced into some of the interludes and later Moralities as a figure of evil. The descent of the figure from characters in Mystery Cycles and Morality Plays (such as ‘The Vices’, the Seven Deadly Sins) is likely, though they are related too to the mischievous devil figure Titivil (or Tutivillus).
