A character illustration for any fantasy-themed role-playing game setting. I made this a decade ago but never gotten around to actually putting it online. The character was designed to fit my own fantasy world Cresia.
Name: Claudia Mezole
Location: Cuervo Garrac, Ferria
Miss Mezole is a free lancing (ie. not part of any shady organization) burglar concentrating her thieving efforts to the southern port cities of Ferria but mostly she operates in the city of Cuervo Garrac based solely on the fact that it is the biggest of these cities. Cuervo Garrac is an ideal place to one of her profession because it is commercial nexus point for trade routes between Crovascia, Tharia and Calishem and as such there are dozens of merchant ships docked in there at any given time and the crews of those ships spend much deserved free time in the city’s many recreational locales. Many of whom get drunk and less careful about their belonging. The dock areas are off limits to free lancers as they are being controlled by a group of professional criminals; just try lifting a purse there and see for yourself. But shady operations around and in of the many taverns and inns are not controlled by any particular group and that’s where most free lancers operate.
Claudia is a flowing and bubbling personality with a hint of fatalism and nihilism thrown in for good measure. She doesn’t think herself as particularly good when it comes to her profession but in fact she is one of the best operating in the area. Her modus operandi is pretty classic: she picks a lone target who rents a room, waits until such a time the target is most probably not going disturb her and simply cleans the room of such valuables that are not identifiable. But come a lucrative enough mark she is not above direct confrontation in a dark alley provided the mark is heavily intoxicated and thus not able to properly defend. Or identify the assailant. She usually works alone. Any proceeds that she makes are simply spent in local joints although she has managed to save a small fortune stashed in a location only she knows.
