The entire third paragraph is that evidence, Molly.
When you are asked the purpose of a word or phrase, consider the purpose of the sentence that it's in. When asked about the purpose of a sentence, consider the purpose of the whole paragraph, because the sentence has to be serving that larger purpose. Otherwise, it wouldn't belong in that paragraph at all.
The third paragraph is all about how the trickster differs from the picaro. Right from the very first word, "But," the author is describing that contrast. In the second paragraph the picaro was described as a foil to society, so saying that the trickster is not such a foil is just part of what makes them different.
