Sleight of Hand [Open RP]

The bunks here weren’t so bad, not compared to the frozen iron cages in the Chill anyway. Malik laid stretched out on the bed in his, or rather their, cell. He had propped one foot against the madras and was now resting the other leg on that knee, slowly bobbing his foot up and down. The Dunmer turned his head towards his cellmate and smirked, letting out a short ‘hmm’ as he turned back to rest on the hands he had put behind head.

However, it still took some time before he said something that was actual words. “So, what are you in for?” he asked, looking up at the stone ceiling with slightly raised eyebrows, his foot still bobbing up and down.

#001 The Guild

The Guild was looking for new members to recruit when Levi and Malik caught wind of it, and they sought them out together. Naturally other thieves were trying to join as well. The two boys then decided to… eliminate competition, and saved themselves a spot each in the Guild.

Both Levi and Malik have now been members of the Thieves Guild for quite a few years, but are known as a pair of loose cannons. On occasion other thieves muck it up, and that is when Levi and Malik come in; they are sent in to clean up the mess, eliminate loose ends and shut people up.
