Special Ability

Among the youngest participants at only twenty-two, "Raffles" is the moniker of an otherwise unknown thief. His father was a talented and obscure artist blacklisted after being deceived by a business partner. His most famous work—four paintings of the Meiringen Falls collected as The Seasons—was claimed as the partner's own work, and thus Raffles and his family fell into destitution. His father's accidental death preceded his mother's frailty soon thereafter. To survive his childhood and coinciding with his family's newfound poverty, Raffles's dedication as an illegalist only advanced alongside new advents in avoiding detection and the confident notion he would never be caught. Upon learning the truth of his father's legacy from an ailing mother, his life's mission became to steal back The Seasons and restore his father's name. However, upon stealing the first and aiming for the second at a black-market auction, he and a partner are interrupted with invitations to Espionage. Through winning, he is to be awarded the remaining pieces in the series as well as newfound evidence that would validate and restore his father's legacy while undoing that of those responsible.
