This isnt so.
The intense curiosity that kender feel feeds their desire to know how locks can be opened, how to approach people unseen and listen in on their conversations, and to reach into pockets or pouches to find interesting things to look at. Thieving comes naturally to them so naturally that they cannot see it as thieving. Kender do not steal for the sake of profit. First of all, they have little concept of value. Faced with a choice between a gp diamond and a huge, glittering chunk of purple glass, 90 kender out of will take the glass.
The rest will take both but will get rid of the diamond first. They pick things up out of curiosity and wander off with them. Sometimes the owner of an item leaves before the kender can give the item back, or else the kender becomes enchanted with the item and forgets to return it. If adventuring, a kender will regard anything found in an enemy stronghold as fair game for picking up, as such items are marvelous curios and might prove useful later on. I forgot that I had it. You walked off before I could give it back.
I was afraid someone else would take it.
You must have dropped it. You put it down and I didnt think you wanted it anymore. Maybe it fell into my pocket. All of these lines are delivered with an innocent sincerity that is all the more maddening because the kender is sincere! A kender might not necessarily remember where she found something, even if she picked it up half a minute before, and such responses are often delivered as part of an unthinking defense mechanism.
Intense curiosity is a trait ingrained in their souls and minds from their racial creation by the Greystone of Gargath. They cannot be other than what they are natural thieves. No regular thieves guilds operate in kender communities, and kender would not belong to such guilds even if they did exist. Tasslehoff Burrfoot learned Thieves Cant during his travels by overhearing conversations between human thieves; he has never belonged to a guild.
Informal organizations for adventurous kender do exist, however, and thieving skills are taught as a matter of course to anyone who is interested in learning them. In addition, families of kender often pass along the knowledge of how to perform certain skills from generation to generation.
Kender, like everyone else, do not like the idea of someone deliberately taking an item from someone else without the latters permission. To be called a thief is still considered a base insult. This assertation sounds remarkable in view of the fact that kender constantly borrow things from each other and from visitors without asking in their home communities.
Kender dont regard their idea of borrowing as stealing, however. If they need something, theyll take it. If they see something interesting, theyll pick it up and pocket it.
A popular proverb defines a kender heirloom as anything that remains longer than three weeks inside a kenders home. After their creation in the Age of Dreams, certain kender were gifted with clerical and druidic powers. These spellcasting kender roamed the entire length and breadth of the continent of Ansalon, spreading their various faiths. Clerical and druidic kender were either incapable of or had no desire for establishing fixed places of worship.
No evil kender clerics were ever seen or heard of. The clerical kender proved to be troublesome for the clerics of the more rigid established religions to govern. Aside from their wanderlust, which made it impossible to keep track of them and get them to settle down, kender clerics also displayed all of the less engaging traits shown by their people: petty theft, name-calling, and questionable wisdom in dealing with danger.
Worse yet, kender clerics were quite good at seeing through false piety and sham, and their criticism of other clerics whether of their own religions or of others was stinging. Religious kender themselves were dedicated and sensitive, even if they were incapable of maintaining close relationships with their flocks for very long. Sooner or later, they would have to move on.
Clerical and druidic kender vanished from the world after the Cataclysm, as did all other clerics. Nothing is known of where they went.
During the centuries after the Cataclysm, kender spent their time searching for their religious leaders and investigating the various false religions that sprang up across the changed world.
Few kender joined such cults for long, and gradually they forgot about the old gods and created a number of their own philosophies on life and the world philosophies in some ways as error-prone as the false religions of the land, but certainly more sincere and friendly. The most highly favored of all gods among the kender were Branchala, Chislev, Mishakal, and Gilean. A certain degree of homage was paid by all kender to Reorx, who indirectly caused the creation of kenderkind, and to Habbakuk, the Fisher King and ruler of animals and the sea.
Branchala, the Bard King, appealed to the kender with his mastery of song, his love of stories and legends, and his wayward nature. All true bards among the kender held Branchala to be their lord, and they served him well on their endless travels.
Clerics of Branchala often learned to play musical instruments or sing as a part of their religious training. Chislevs worship involved immersing oneself in the harmony and peacefulness of nature, establishing a oneness with the earth and its seasons and cycles, and in the avoidance of judging things to be good or evil. If a thing was troublesome, it was dealt with, whether it was good or bad in nature. Peace and community were emphasized highly.
Druidic kender were often accompanied in their wanderings by retinues of wild animals some under a charm and some merely friendly.
