Thief-catchers, sometimes called thief takers, are men or women who specialize in tracking down thieves and bandits in cities.


Their weapon of choice is usually a sword breaker, as thief takers are generally focused on disarming and capturing outlaws rather than killing them.


Some thief-catchers only work for nobility or royalty, while others will work for anyone who can pay. Juilin Sandar, for example, works mainly for the High Nobility of Tear but will negotiate with commoners for his services.[1]
