With snappy comebacks and spontaneous one-liners, the Jester is always popular. --Description in Dragon Quest VII

The Gadabout (Goof-off or Jester in earlier localisations) is a class in the Dragon Quest series.

Goof-offs, although pretty much useless on the battle field, have a great amount of luck. This allows them to deal critical amounts of damage more often than other characters. The trade-off for this is the fact that Goof-offs have minds of their own, and the player cannot always control their actions. Goof-offs are the wild cards of the game, as they sometimes do damage to themselves instead of attacking enemy characters. In Dragon Quest III, Goof-off is the only class that can turn into a Sage at Dharma Temple without a Book of Satori.

Usefulness

The Jester's drop in all categories might be hard to deal with at first and the skills aren't worth using but the Jester is required to become a Teen Idol and then a Summoner later on.
