Trivia

Origin

Thievul appears to be based on the red fox. Its facial features and mustache-like whiskers bear resemblance to stereotypical depictions of thieves and burglars, as well as the Guy Fawkes mask, which may be a pun on "Fawkes" and "fox" being homophones. Its front legs resemble gloves which thieves and burglars would have to wear.

Name origin

Thievul may be a combination of thief, evil, and vulpine.

Fokusurai may be a combination of fox and sly.
