Thieves are the rogues of Derlith, the common criminals and scam artists. Their goal in life is to get ahead no matter what the cost, whether to themselves or to others. A thief can steal very well, often taking things from his victim's inventory without them even knowing it is even missing until hours later. He also may peek at his victim's possessions so that he may know what he can take. Like an assassin, a thief has the ability to strike from the shadows, stabbing his enemy in the back to do massive damage in one strike. Although he is not as adept at it as an assassin, the thief is still often able to kill his opponent in this manner. All but the most exotic locks often are not an obstacle for a thief, as he has the ability to pick them open to always get where he wants to go. A thief can also hide in the shadows and often sneaks from place to place without being seen, making him hard to detect or catch. A thief is so dexterous, that he is able to dodge attacks the more experienced he becomes. Sometimes the moves they make are amazing. There are many organizations across Derlith which a thief may join at some point or another during his life. Most of these organizations are in direct opposition to anything that involves law and order.

Abilities: Steal, Peek, Backstab, Pick
