“"The obligator is nearly here. Are you ready?"
"Everything is perfect. Leave me be, Theron! Go back to your room and wait."
Theron is a skaa thief from Luthadel on Scadrial.
Appearance and Personality
Theron is a tall man who wears a simple grey shirt and slacks. He keeps a thins sword tied around his waist.
Like most thieves, Theron doesn't trust anyone. He likely would have betrayed Camon if given the chance, but Camon betrays him first.
Vin nearly had to use her Luck on Theron to get him to stop running his eyes up and down her body.
About six years before the Collapse, Theron discovered that the Steel Ministry secretly moved a large amount of funds to Luthadel along with acolytes transferring to Luthadel for their final instruction. Over the next five years, he spent thousands of boxings to create the perfect opportunity to steal these funds, creating the appearance that House Jedue was financially desperate. This included faking contracts for House Jedue to "loose," such as the Farwan deal, the "loss" of which made it appear as if House Jedue could no long afford to run its canal boats to Luthadel. This appearance, in turn, allowed him to apply for a contract with the Canton of Finance to run the canal boats that transported the acolytes, and make the offer extremely appealing by offering a significantly reduced price without it appearing suspicious.
To sell the con, however, Theron needed someone to play the role of Lord Jedue, and so reluctantly partnered with Camon, one of the best noble impersonators in the Luthadel underground. Camon played along, but he knew Theron's resources were stretched thin. After securing the contract, Camon betrayed Theron and simply took the three thousand boxing down payment, abandoning the plan to actual run the boats and steel from the convoy, and leaving Theron to deal with the Ministry's wrath when it discovered it had been scammed.
When Kelsier's crew needed a way to get Marsh into the Steel Ministry, Vin remembered that Theron had an obligator contact that was open to bribes on the canal route that new acolytes took to Luthadel. Dockson then reached out to Theron and was able to use his contact to get Marsh added as an acolyte from the contact's local chapter.
The Steel Inquisitors hunting Vin discovered the connection between her and Theron's crew, and massacred the entire crew.
If Theron and Camon had successfully pulled off the attack on the convoy, they would have found atium hidden among the coins, revealing to Ruin that most atium never left the Pits of Hathsin.
