The thief character class in role-playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons, Final Fantasy, and most MMORPGs are stealthy, dextrous characters who are the only characters who can disarm traps, pick locks, and perform backstabs from hiding.
Typically, these thieves are capable of hand to hand fighting or usage of bows, and while stronger than a mage, are outclassed in physical combat by character classes who are dedicated to such talents.
Although the thief as an archetype in role-playing games achieved popularity through Dungeons and Dragons, in the game's Third Edition the class was renamed as "Rogue", likely since not all stealthy characters are actually thieves.
Thief is a 1981 noir crime drama written and directed by Michael Mann, based on the novel The Home Invaders by "Frank Hohimer" (the pen name of real-life jewel thief John Seybold).
Thief's moody soundscapes were composed and performed by Tangerine Dream, providing the first of many notable film compositions they had in the 1980s.
The film also earns plaudits for its meticulous attention to detail: the tools and techniques of the trade, right down to the oxy lance used to penetrate a safe, are authentic, the result of Mann's decision to hire real-life thieves to serve as technical advisors.
