I would say money. It's what everyone would expect me to say, but I've always been one to not to the expected. While I do love money and the power that it brings there is one more thing that I treasure more. Reputation. Okay, go right ahead, get the laughter out of the way. A thief that values something.
My reputation with my clients. They know that they will get the object that they commission me to steal. They also know that I can find the hard to find objects, the ones that others have given up on. I'm the go to girl and I like that. A thief is only as good as their reputation and as I told Dean, I'm a great thief.
When my reputation is threatened, I pay back. That's what the little towing of Dean's precious possession was all about. Well that and it was funny. I had a good thing going with the little old ladies on the Eastern Seaboard. It might not have been my reputation, but it was one of the many personas that I am reputation and that's almost the same thing. So, I got it back and the scam is ready to roll again if I need it.
Money equals power, reputation equals another satisfied customer which gives you more money. In the end, it's a win-win situation.
