My Middle Name is Larceny: Supporting NPCs

I need somewhere to put NPC stats for the current duet game, a globetrotting cat burglar campaign set in the 1970s starring one Beverley "Bev" Slick. This seems like a good enough place.

Keep in mind that as Savage Worlds NPCs, I just assigned stats as desired rather than "building" these characters. Keep in mind also that Bev started the game at Legendary.

Inspector Diego Alatriste XIII
Special Agent Penelope “Penny” Slick

Wild Cards

Globetrotting cat-burglar Beverly “Bev” Slick’s Enemy [Minor] is actually two people, both of whom are bound to her by ties of love as well as duty.

Inspector Diego Alatriste XIII of INTERPOL is a suave Renaissance man, equally at home catching perps and cooking a gourmet meal. Having lost his heart to Bev Slick during an earlier case, he seeks to reform her as much as capture her. His obsession with Bev manifests as much as an insistence of always giving her the benefit of the doubt as it does to insisting that he’ll be the one to bring her in.

FBI Special Agent Penny Slick wants her sister behind bars for betraying their parents, turning back to the life of crime their mother and father died to leave behind. Ignoring the fact that maybe – just maybe – all of the lessons in lock-picking and pick-pocketing were to prepare the girls for lives in the underworld instead of law enforcement, Penny’s obsession borders on hatred of her twin.

Monkey Mask
Wild Card

Bev’s occasional lover/partner-in-crime/rival is a handsome man of mixed Japanese/white ancestry of unknown name and origin. He usually talks with an American accent when he speaks English, but switches to an array of native accents for any other language he speaks. His features are vague enough that with a minor application of makeup he can easily pass for full-blooded Asian or white. He usually trades under the name “Saburo Raffles,” but answers to (and has documentation for) “Kenshiro Clay,” “Ryu Duroc,” “Basho Maverick,” and “Marcel Kaito.” 

Instead of a normal burglar’s balaclava, Monkey Mask always completes his crimes wearing an ape- or monkey-themed mask (preferring a full Planet of the Apes-style mask) as a good luck ritual. He refuses to discuss the origin of this superstitious behavior.
