My career (downhill)

From theatrical_muse: What was your childhood ambition?

You can probably guess that one: to be the best thief in the galaxy. And I was too, getting into Central Control, which they said couldn't be done. It's a bit ironic, really, that I'm more known for being a rebel when I'm nowhere near as good at it. In fact people like Bayban often assume I switched careers because I failed. It wasn't that at all. Look, there's not a lot to nick on a penal colony, esp one full of religious maniacs giving out vomit pills as a welcome gift, and I did get my pick of interesting locks along the way, excuse the pun.

So I achieved my ambition. It's just annoying that it's not what I'll be remembered for.
