    The latest arrival to the group, Billy introduces himself as "a work of art, a force of nature" who can "separate a mark from his money quicker than any man alive"'.

    A criminal delinquent in his youth, Billy spent most of his formative years in and out of foster homes. He feels a sense of injustice about the world and it's time for him to fight back.

    Billy's a big fan of Danny Blue and seeks him out to learn the tricks of the trade.

    He can see the beauty that exists in a perfectly executed con and has studied the art of the great con-men.

    He's got the spirit and energy to be a great grifter - now he wants the wisdom that comes with experience.
