Former thief turned magician
Jack Dawkins, now known as Maskelyne, is a london-famous street magician and conman. He spends a good deal of his time setting up street shows where he shows off his unique abilities as a Card Sharpe and avoiding the Police.
If anyone will stop to listen, he will tell them all about his intentions to fill out a patent with TEU for pay toilets.
As Inspector Frank Froest will gladly let anyone know, Jack Dawkins has a criminal history originating from his childhood, and that he has most likely not given up his Artful Nature.
