Quaver is a Brown minion and the Fourth Overlord's jester.

Characterization Edit

Quaver, unlike most of his predecessors, is more jovial in his role as jester, in addition to possessing an obvious Irish accent. He concocts amusing poems about the feats and accomplishments of his Overlord.

He prominently loses his right eye when, after the Minions recovered the frozen form of the Overlad, he stupidly sticks his face against the ice, trying to peer inside, before abruptly pulling off to avoid being burned to cinders by the "dragon" Gnarl mentions that is used to melt the ice. His missing eye is replaced by a glass one going forward that, due to his antics, frequently pops out.

Although Quaver has similar mannerisms to his immediate predecessor, he is more sophisticated and more loyal to the Fourth Overlord than Jester was to the Third Overlord. His fellow minions, however, show a clear disdain for him (going so far as kicking him out of the Brown minion gate during the Overlad's training), because of his obnoxious poem-waxing, which are made to honor the Overlord and his journeys.

His love of art is so great that when the Overlord finds and obtains a harp from the elves in the Nordberg Sanctuary, according to Gnarl, he fainted on the spot. After obtaining the harp, Quaver puts a Minion Band together to more formally sing his poems to the Overlord whenever in the Throne Room.

According to Gnarl, Quaver is also the Netherworld Tower's resident chef, based on his comment about wondering what Quaver will make for lunch.
