If you want a list that works with todays rules, use the Eldar Online Codex (4th Edition). That works just fine.

Be warned, it is not an easy list to play with, particularly against enemies who get a lot of shooting!

As for background... it's a tad scattered. The Harlequins are warrior-bards of the Eldar. They serve the Laughing God, they guard the Black Library and the Webway, they recruit from all other Eldar factions (who hold them in a mix of fear and awe) and they undergo The Ritual that frees them from Slaneesh.

It is perhaps the Shadowseer that is most mysterious, as the exact nature of this chap varies greatly. Some say their souls are doomed to be consumed by Slaneesh, others that their soul is gone entirely (either already eaten, or somehow removed). Sometimes they are said to live amongst other Eldar in secret, whilst other times they recruit for the Troupes.

Either way, a Harlequin is more than capable of blitzing a platoon of Space Marines into bloody pulp.
