Sardines was one of the rats involved in Maurice's get-rich-quick schemes. He was an older rat but he moved like lightning. He'd been Changed like the rest of The Clan, but he went one step further. He'd lived in a theatre and once ate a whole box of greasepaint. Somehow it'd got under his skin. He didn't so much move as dance. He tapdanced across washing lines, shimmied across town streets - and still moved faster than everybody else! He carried a tiny cane, and was the only rat other than Darktan to wear clothes: he's forced a homemade straw hat over his ears.
