Reports filtering through the underworld channels claim that the body of one Amaas Shadowfinger, a petty thief and miscreant who hailed from Eastleg, was discovered last night by members of the Imperial Tribunal who, by coincidence, had been seeking to arrest the man for fleeing the scene of a brawl in the Lightholder Crossroads.
Although the exact details of the incident leading to the Thief's somewhat gory death are unknown, it is believed that the unfortunate knave returned to a place that he had frequented earlier that week - a place that had already nearly cost him his life.
Rumour suggests that Amaas hadn't learned his lesson from his first misadventure - one that left him severely wounded and near to death - and decided to poke at the fire a second time "just to see what would happen".
It is believed that Priest Bandus Flint was 'pleased' that someone with a 'clearly Shadow Touched name' such as Shadowfinger is no longer able to menace the population. However, this belief cannot be verified by any legitimate source.
