A nice, fun-loving Halfling. Was raised by his parents, who shared his profession: they taught him everything he knows. He left them when he was 30 (normal for a Halfling) and went on to adventuring and wandering the known world for excitement and treasure.

The combination of being Curious, a Kleptomaniac and Fearless gets him into a lot of trouble (he says "excitement"). His Kleptomania is moved mainly by Curiosity and fondness of shiny things. If confronted with stealing he will make up explanations to his accuser. He is very hard to frighten and will do things that nobody else will have the guts to do - like making a troll mad. Sometimes that will get him into trouble; sometimes it gets him the big prize. He does not think of stealing as stealing but as "borrowing" or "saving for someone." He is a good friend, and people want to do good things for him. Sometimes people treat him like a child but he does not notice. He sometimes bugs people, but he makes up for it with his excellent thief skills.

Typical Quotes:

"Ammm, I wonder if I could open that lock . . . "

"I didn't know that was yours - anyway, you should thank me! Somebody could have come and taken it out of your pocket!"

"Hi, Mr. Troll! Your mamma was ugly, nyah nyah nyah nyah!"
