The second new character, Therion the Thief, has been hired by a mysterious client, who tasks him with the theft of a precious gem. His Path Action is Steal, which allows him to take what he wants from almost everyone. This includes items Therion can use to complete quests, as well as rare or unique items, not sold in any store.
