Kelland (also known as The Thief from his constellation in the sky) is a Blue Techo and one of the 12 heroes of Altador. He is a highly skilled thief and has mastery over the dark arts. He doesn't feel that dark magic is inherently evil but depends on whether one uses the power for good or ill. He became a hero from reforming from his old ways.

The clue for The Thief constellation was released on April 20th. To start, go to the Altadorian Archives where the Lenny Conundrum Lenny has now appeared standing behind a column. He tells you that Finneus is his uncle and would like you to take the Meepit Plushie from his office. Upon returning it, the Lenny says that this plushie is not his Uncle's favourite. After putting the plushie back, go to the main lobby and click the doorhandle of the door on the left. Once inside the Archives, click on the larger doors to move from room to room until you find that one of the small sidedoors is clickable. This door opens up to reveal a closet, inside is a box of replacement pink meepit plushies. After hiding this box in another closet, go back to the Archivist Office where Finneus will take out his favourite Meepit Plushie from a cabinet. Distract him by throwing a rock at a vase and once he turns around, take his favourite Meepit Plushie and return it to the Lenny Conundrum Lenny. After the Lenny accidentally rips the head off, click on the dagger that is found embedded in the plushie to reveal the pattern for The Thief constellation. Return the ripped plushie and head to the Observatory. When you find the constellation go back to the Astronomy Club, they will give you The Astronomy Club item.
Book of Ages - Chapter 9, The Thief
There is an old saying that it takes a thief to catch a thief. There is some truth to this old adage, as was proven by Kelland, the Techo thief...
Born into a life of thievery, Kelland never questioned his role in society, much less whether what he did was right or wrong. Stealing was simply a part of his nature. One day, he watched as a tired Elephante collected his weekly wages, and headed down a dark, empty alley.
Moments later, an Aisha jumped from a nearby rooftop, grabbed the Elephante's small coin purse, and escaped into the shadows, leaving the poor worker helpless. For the first time in his life, Kelland felt something stir inside of him. Was it sympathy?
When he returned to the thieves' den later that night, Kelland saw the Aisha thief lounging about.
Disgusted, Kelland walked past the Aisha, and using his great stealth, stole the coin pouch back. Quietly, the Techo returned to the streets, to where he had seen the Elephante sullenly trudge home. Kelland placed the pouch on the Elephante's doorstep and knocked, then leapt onto the roof. Below, he heard the door open, followed by a gasp of joy.
The Elephante looked around, but saw no one. "Whoever returned this," he said into the cold night, "has my eternal gratitude. Thank you." He left a few of the coins on his doorstep and closed the door. Kelland dropped to the street and picked up the coins. He felt oddly fulfilled, something his life of crime had never brought him.
From that moment on, the Techo used his skills for good whenever possible, doing his best to ensure that the working poor did not suffer from crime. Word soon spread about this reformed thief, and it wasn't long before a wise Lupe asked him to join his council, for light from darkness is a rare quality indeed.
