Thief

It isn’t easy being a burglar but you have successfully made a go of it by virtue of luck, a reassuring smile, and the ability to quickly lose your pursuers. You also know from experience that the heat really only comes on when blood is spilt—it’s smarter to abscond without the goods than to resort to violence and even then, it’s important to sell what you’ve got quickly even if it means taking a hit on the take.

Skill Proficiencies: Deception, Stealth
Tool Proficiencies: Thieves’ tools
Equipment: Thieves’ tools

Feature: Escapist

You are exceptionally talented at winning in a chase (if the chase rules are in effect you gain advantage on one check each round while you are being chased, although this does not benefit your companions). Creatures tracking you with Wisdom (Survival) checks have disadvantage and when you are in an urban area you gain advantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks made to blend in with a crowd.
