OriginEdit

Herman Lamm was an American bank robber who is considered by many as the “father of modern bank robbery”. His techniques were meticulous, requiring as much information as he could get about the job’s particulars. He would time how long they could stay before police arrived, what were the best local roads to escape on, assigned each man a specific job and surveyed the bank’s layout and security beforehand. Known today as “casing the joint”, his techniques made his crew some of the best bank robbers of his era. His methods inspired later robbers and gangsters of notoriety, including John Dillinger himself.

EffectsEdit

The user turns into a professionally skilled thief. They become highly detail oriented and will be able to create the perfect plan for infiltration into secure locations and stealing the valuables locked inside. To do this they will intensively research everything about the job before they carry through. After every job however, this obsession with details will grow until they are paranoid and unable to function normally.
