Stainless Steel Briefing!
"Slippery" Jim diGriz
Real name: James Bolivar diGriz
Planet of Birth: Bit O' Heaven
First Recorded Crime: Robbed the First Bank of Bit O' Heaven at age 17 and briefly incarcerated in the local prison before escaping to continue his career as a criminal. diGriz has never been caught since despite the valiant, if plodding efforts of many law enforcement agencies.
Favoured Crime: Bank Robbery
Criminal Record: Too extensive to go into at present but needless to say his life of crime is about to come to an end!
Known Vices: Cigars and Booze
Notes: Con man, thief and all-round rascal. He is charming and quick-witted, a master of disguise and martial arts, an accomplished bank robber, an expert on breaking and entering, and (perhaps most usefully) a skilled liar. A master of self-rationalization, the Rat frequently justifies his crimes by arguing that he is providing society with entertainment; and besides which, he only steals from institutions which have insurance coverage. He displays a strong morality, albeit in a much more restricted sense than is traditional. (For example, he will happily steal, but deplores killing.)
As you can see from the above briefing diGriz is a career criminal but does appear to have some scruples. It is for this reason that I plan on offering him the option of either spending the rest of his days on a penal colony on the Drudgery Worlds or joining the Corps as his unique skills will make him a valuable addition to the organisation.
Postscript: The wit who came up with the title for this briefing should be flogged!
