This is a roleplaying character of mine. He is a sailor with thieving tendancies. This is him in his natural habitat examining his latest appropriation. Background Thomas grew up by the sea. His parents taught him everything he knows... well almost everything. The sea wasn't his main interest, gold was. When he got older and his parents would go out sailing by themselves, he would keep himself occupied by fishing... into other's pockets. After a few years of this he was caught by a professional thief. He saw potential in the boy, and taught him the correct way of pilfering pockets, as well as a few other skills. On one big job Thomas accidentally killed a guard. (While climbing a wall he accidentally bumped a gargoyle off a shelf and it flew to the guard... squash!) Knowing if he were caught he would be sentenced to death, he got himself hired on a ship headed as far from the city as he could find. He spent a few years earning his keep as a sailor.
