But at the same time, a streetwise cat burglar known as Kira also tries to steal the stones and the two barely manage to escape together with the loot. Neither of them has much use for the other, but all they have to do is fence the stones and split the take. The only problem is, the runestones won't stay fenced. They keep magically returning to the thieves.
