Trivia

Origin

Thievul is based on a red fox and a burglar or thief. Its tail resembles a sack of stolen items. Its face resembles stereotypical depictions of burglars, and may also draw inspiration from the Guy Fawkes mask. Its whiskers resemble a moustache, possibly a play on the motif of a Gentleman Thief.

Etymology

Thievul is a combination of "thief" and "vulpine" (a term referring to foxes). The end of its name is also pronounced similarly to "evil", as it is a dark-type, a type associated with evil.
