For pickpocketing in Fallout 3, see Sneak.
You are much more adept at stealing than the normal crook. You can Steal with the best of them, because with this perk, you ignore size and facing modifiers, when stealing from a person.
Fallout actually requires 80% Sneak, not Steal. This may be a bug, or the manual is incorrect.
