How sadAlthough it is well known the rats take advantage of the victims, they also take advantage of their own people.
As it comes down to them, if their character is to lie, steal and deceive they will also to this to those around them.
For example, going in a store knowing you cannot pay for the items, telling the owner you will pay next time.
The rat knowing he cannot pay and will not pay, this is like stealing but on a small scale.
Of course it all starts with lies as this is all he ever did all his life and it has worked in some cases.
