The Hero of City of Thieves was an "experienced and highly trained swordsman" who earned a living as a hired warrior, usually working for rich nobles and barons. Having previously slain many monsters and beasts including a Dragon, he or she ("swordsman" may be considered gender-neutral) had a reputation for successfully completing difficult missions and had attained a degree of fame.[1]

After defeating Zanbar Bone at the behest of Owen Carralif, the Mayor of Silverton, the hero received many gifts, including a gold orb worth hundreds of Gold Pieces.[2] It is possible that the hero featured in one or more other books, either before or afterwards.
