Mitch "the Weasel" Weisel
rating: 0+x

By quarkstomperquarkstomper

Your contact is slouching in one of the booths at the far end of the tavern. The flat cap he has pulled down over his face does not disguise the ferret-like nose protruding from it, nor the quivering whiskers. You can't help looking behind him to see if he has a furry tail coming out of the back of his trousers. He does.

"The name's WYE-sell," he corrects you. "WYE-sell. It's not that hard, fer cryin' out loud. Yeah, I look like a ferret. This doc I met a while back hired me to do a job; except that the job included me bein' a guinea pig. He gave me some kinda serum to give me 'zoo-morphic enhanced traits' he said. Well, it enhanced me all right. But that's neither here nor there like the fella says. Doesn't matter what I look like. If you want me to get into a place, I can do it. If the price is right."

  • Master Thief Talent is a custom talent giving bonuses to skills associated with stealing things. In an earlier version of the character I also gave him a Burglar! bang skill, but for this version I decided to cite the skills individually.
