Jacques Harle is the head of a minstrel “family,” a motley assortment of gnome, dragonborn, dwarf, and two Goliaths. He is the “father” and leader of the troupe, with Goliath daughters Josephine and Jean, dragonborn son Jerome and dwarf son Louis. They are known for their musical talents, but they are also adept at tumbling, acrobatics, and treachery. When the party encountered them in competition outside Riven, Jacques and Jack seemed to know one another, though they were not exactly friendly to one another. After the competition, Jack spent a fair amount of time in conversation with the Harles in their tent, though the subject of that conversation is unknown to the rest of the party.
