A 22 year old petty thief sounds like just the sort of person we might expect to find playing pitch and toss in Dorset Street. Gawd pity their plight, mind you - times were hard.

He didn't mix things up, but evolved in escalating stages, each exhibiting distinct characteristics. More of a progression than a variety act.
