Jasperino

Jasperino is Alsemero's friend. He expresses surprise at Alsemero's sudden change of plans after he falls in love with Beatrice, and decides that he will entertain himself by seducing Diaphanta, who seems more than willing to be seduced. Jasperino later reports to Alsemero that he and Diaphanta have overheard incriminating conversation between De Flores and Beatrice.

Jasperino's name might mean "red Stone" (Jasper) or "Treasure Holder." Jasperino does hold the treasure of the truth when he overhears Beatrice and De Flores.
