After every Freaks' act, while Boris is busy introducing the next performer, Harleen does her own little number, in silence, behind the great ring master. And in fact, those in the know say that the unlikely pair made up by Boris and Harleen, is actually the most interesting part of the entire Freaks' show.

- Harleen's appearance is based of Ledger Heath Ledger's version of The Joker.
- Her name is also from the real name of Joker's quasi-girlfriend, Harley Quinn.
- Her name is a reference to harlequin or arlequino in Italian. Arliquino is a character in the comedia del arte tradition, who is agile, a bit of a trickster, and always of the working class. Many of the original masks were black to indicate working in the coal mines, one of the dirtiest jobs that only the lowest class of people would submit to. He is often the lackey of pantalone. Originally, he was quite talkative, but after the French theatrical guild restricted speaking to just a few theaters, the circuses were forced to have solely pantomimed acts. In this setting the higher class role was often taken by the ringmaster. The antics of the harlequin were often mocking the authority figure behind his back, which explains Harleen's bio.
