Finieous Fingers is a thief, allegedly (according to himself, if no one else), the world's greatest, but is in actuality both somewhat inept and a coward. He lives in a fantasy mileau inhabited by halflings and sorcerers, and works with two henchmen, Fred and Charly.
Created, written and drawn by J.D. Webster, Finieous Fingers first appeared in issue 3 of TSR's roleplaying game magazine Dragon. He continued to appear there intermittently until 1981's issue 54, and his adventures were collected in The Finieous Treasury that same year. After a brief hiatus, Finieous resurfaced in Manzakk Publishing's Adventure Gaming magazine, before moving to Steve Jackson Games' magazines Space Gamer and then Fantasy Gamer, and eventually Alderac Entertainment's Shadis magazine.
