The hero stalks the streets of a squalid, plague-ravaged city, seeking to undermine a corrupt leadership that cares nothing for the sick and poor. His primary tools are stealth and uncanny acrobatic abilities, but he is equipped to fight if necessary. This describes Garrett the hero of "Thief." It also describes Corvo from "Dishonored," and the former doesn't always stack up well against its predecessor.
