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.

Benefits from Stats
Suggested prime requisites are in magenta.
- Strength & Dexterity: Both these stats determine your attack power and dodge, thus they should your top priority when picking stats. They indirectly play a large role in the damage of your backstab.
- Constitution: Since throwing points in this stat will increase your HP gained per level, it wouldn't hurt to be able to tank a few extra hits. While a thief should focus on dodging and damaging an opponent as quickly as possible, it's always good to be prepared if you do receive a few blows from the opposing team.
- Intelligence: Thieves are not known to excel very much in magic, but they do have the MP and ability to cast that may provide extra damage during battle. They have a slow casting time, but a few spells here and there can make a big difference in combat. INT is not important, but optional if you'd like to cast.
- Piety: Even if you put INT on your thief, it is hard to justify putting points in PTY at all. Despite their moderate MP, points will probably be more effective in other stats. Not recommended.
