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 Second Story Man

"But the Golden Skull was locked away in the highest room of our tallest tower!"

The Pickpocket

"My jeweled amulet— it's gone!"

The Professional Treasure Hunter
Kinda like Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit
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!!!"

other
Please explain.
The Grifter

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

The Highwayman

"Your money or your life!"

The Assassin
The thoughtful kind who makes his target dead by poison, trickery, misdirection. Stealing lives is a type of theft, too.
The Consultant
Hired to check the defenses of various items/people.
The Grey Mouser
Low-level mage, rapier-wielding thief
The Skeleton Key

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

The Amateur Cracksman
Famous cricketer by day, audacious safe cracker by night.
The Backstabber

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

The Bruiser
Muscles and a club
The Cutpurse
*snick*
