Name

Gallus Estrada

Concept

High-class thief-for-hire, adept at getting into normally inaccessible areas, persuasion, and improvisation.

Aspects

I Work Alone: Gallus grew up on the streets as an orphan with his brother, and thus learned that no one can be trusted and anyone is potentially an enemy. He is slow to build up loyalty, but once he decides he likes you, he'll do anything for you.
Fuck the Police!: When his brother died, Gallus gained an intense hatred for authority figures, especially those charged with dealing out justice.
Hugs, Not Drugs: After seeing how alcohol affected his father's disposition, Gallus swore off drinking and any other mind-altering substance. He is also cautious of any situation in which others might be hiding things from him.

An Anomalous Swipe Card Gallus took this card off of Tam. It's completely blank, leaving no clues as to its use.

Personal History

Gallus grew up in urban Mexico. He never knew his mother, and his father was an abusive drunk. When he was six and his brother was eight, they killed their father, took what they could, and made their living in the streets. A picked pocket here, a beating endured there, and Gallus was soon a hardened criminal. He learned a hatred of the military when his brother was killed by the Federali in a drug bust gone wrong. Gradually, he worked his way up to much more challenging thievery, and made his way in the underground criminal world as a thief for hire. He was recruited by the Foundation when he gained a good deal of renown.

Miscellaneous

Despite his non-academic background, Gallus learns rather quickly and has been known to pick up other topics with ease.
