POLL DESCRIPTION

unknown member wonders...

I read this today:
Cartoon
...and it got me thinking. I only ever played one thief character in my D&D days, and he was more of "second-story man" than a highwayman or pickpocket/cutpurse. I liked the "skill" aspect of the character more than the larceny, and if I ever roleplayed a thief again, I'd probably go that same route. So, what type of thief characters do you play or prefer?
The Grifter

"Hold on… why does this solid gold idol that lass sold me weigh less than my favorite pillow?"

The Cutpurse
*snick*
The Amateur Cracksman
Famous cricketer by day, audacious safe cracker by night.
The Skeleton Key

"Why, yes, your diamonds are stored safely in our vault— By Hera! They're gone!"

The Backstabber

"I'm in the money, I'm in the mone—ERRK!"

The Assassin
The thoughtful kind who makes his target dead by poison, trickery, misdirection. Stealing lives is a type of theft, too.
other
Please explain.
The Consultant
Hired to check the defenses of various items/people.
The Pickpocket

"My jeweled amulet— it's gone!"

The Grey Mouser
Low-level mage, rapier-wielding thief
The Trap-Tricker

"But but but— the treasure room was guarded by poison darts! Pressure plates! Snake-filled pits! Spike-filled pits! Snake-and-spike-filled pits!!!"

The Highwayman

"Your money or your life!"

The Professional Treasure Hunter
Kinda like Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit
