Lupin the Third vs. Sly Cooper: Chapter 5
~The next morning~
After the whole fiasco at Louie Dubois’s ball, the public were in a frenzy. The press reported about the incident, with headlines like, “MASTER THIEF LUPIN STEALS ANCIENT SWORD!” or “LUPIN THE THIRD STRIKES AGAIN!” At Interpol HQ, Zenigata and Carmelita were in Chief Barkley’s office, where the badger was scolding the two inspectors for their failure to catch Lupin.
“You both had one job, and you couldn’t catch Lupin!”
“Sorry sir” Carmelita replied. “But you must understand, Lupin was in disguise”.
“Even though I informed you that he was a master of disguise?” Barkley shot back. The small badger had his fist clenched on his desk.
“I heard Sly Cooper was there as well, wasn’t he?” Barkley asked.
“Yes he was” Carmelita replied. “But he managed to get away too”.

Lupin the Third vs. Sly Cooper: Chapter 4
~Two nights later~
It was the night on which the ball was being held. At Louie Dubois’s large mansion, over a hundred guests were there, drinking wine and dancing. On a rooftop, across from the mansion, Sly was looking through his binoculars at the police officers that were keeping guard. The day before the ball, Dubois received a calling card from Lupin, announcing his plans to steal the ancient sword. Sly knew that he had to get the sword before Lupin could. After all, he didn’t want to be upstaged by the wolf again.
“Ok Bentley, I can see the police down there and I gotta say, there defiantly a lot of them” Sly said to the turtle through his ear speaker.
In an alleyway, not too far away from the mansion, the Cooper Van was parked with Bentley inside at the computer monitors with Murray at the driver’s seat. The turtle had managed to hack into nearby CCTV cameras to see how many officers were there for himself.
“I see what you mean Sly, you’r

Lupin the Third vs. Sly Cooper: Chapter 3
Outside the city, where a moderately large house was located, three figures were gathered in the living room. The three were all sitting on brown couches, two on one and one on the other. The two sitting on one couch were a wolf and a rabbit. The wolf was holding a ruby in his hand whilst the rabbit casually smoked a cigarette. One the other couch, a cheetah was sitting with his eyes closed in a seiza fashion, whilst holding his long wooden pole, which was actually a katana. This was none other than Lupin the Third and his gang, at their hideout with the ‘Dei Pulchritudinis’, which they had stolen last night.
“So Lupin” the rabbit spoke up.
“Yes Jigen?” Lupin replied.
Now that we got the ruby, what do you think we should do now?” the rabbit called Jigen asked.
“Glad you asked” replied the wolf. “I think it’s about time we planned our next job”. Jigen just glanced at Lupin.
“Seriously, you mean you want to ste

Lupin the Third vs. Sly Cooper: Chapter 2
It was the next morning after the ‘Dei Pulchritudinis’ was stolen from the museum and the police force was in an uproar. Almost every cop in the force was in the building, all of them working and filing reports of the incident from last night. Everyone was talking about it, the news, the public, you couldn’t get away from it. It wasn’t all just about the ruby being stolen, people were mostly talking about the one who stole the hundred year old ruby and beat the infamous Sly Cooper to it. They all talked about how he was bringing his grandfather’s legacy back to France or what his next target was. It was clear that Lupin the Third had taken France by storm.
However, during all this commotion, the only one who seemed to remain calm throughout all of it was none other than Inspector Carmelita Montoya Fox of Interpol. She was sitting at her desk, wearing her trademark yellow leather jacket, dark blue jeans, yellow gloves and brown combat-like boots. She had he

Lupin the Third vs. Sly Cooper: Chapter 1
It was a dark, yet beautiful night in the city of Paris. Lights from buildings shone throughout the quite streets and the Eiffel Tower towered over all in the city. However, on this night, a shadowy figure ran from rooftop to rooftop with ease before making a massive leap for another building ahead. The moon shone down on the figure to reveal that the figure was wearing a blue elbow-sleeved shirt, a blue cap, a black mask, blue boots and held a hook-shaped cane. He also had a bushy tail with rings on it and appeared to have a grey fur colour. The figure turned out to be none other than the infamous raccoon thief himself, Sly Cooper. Sly landed on the rooftop before walking to the other side and looking down to see a museum which was closed for the night. He then crouched down and got out a pair of binoculars from his red backpack to observe the museum. Whilst he did that, he heard a male voice coming from the binoculars.
“Sly… Can you read me?” asked the voice.

~The next morning~

After the whole fiasco at Louie Dubois’s ball, the public were in a frenzy. The press reported about the incident, with headlines like, “MASTER THIEF LUPIN STEALS ANCIENT SWORD!” or “LUPIN THE THIRD STRIKES AGAIN!” At Interpol HQ, Zenigata and Carmelita were in Chief Barkley’s office, where the badger was scolding the two inspectors for their failure to catch Lupin.

“You both had one job, and you couldn’t catch Lupin!”

“Sorry sir” Carmelita replied. “But you must understand, Lupin was in disguise”.

“Even though I informed you that he was a master of disguise?” Barkley shot back. The small badger had his fist clenched on his desk.

“I heard Sly Cooper was there as well, wasn’t he?” Barkley asked.

“Yes he was” Carmelita replied. “But he managed to get away too”.

“LIKE HE ALWAYS DOES!” the badger yelled. “Every damn time, you can’t ever catch him!”

“Now hold on Barkley!”

Both Carmelita and Barkley were surprised to hear Zenigata raise his voice at the badger. The bloodhound had his fist on the desk and he was clearly tired of the chief giving the vixen hell.

“Ms. Fox did the best she could to catch those thieves” Zenigata said. “From what I’ve seen of her, she is one of the finest inspectors I’ve ever met, so don’t go giving her that crap after all she has done!”

Carmelita was taken aback. She didn’t expect the older inspector to defend her, let alone stand up the Chief Barkley. Both the bloodhound and badger were glaring at each other with silence looming in the office. Barkley knew that Zenigata could be difficult sometimes, but he didn’t like it when somebody was challenging him.

“Inspector Zenigata” Barkley spoke up, breaking the silence. “Would you kindly get out of my face?”

Zenigata took a deep breath and stood up straight. He was still frustrated at the badger, but he didn’t want to provoke him any further.

“I apologize sir, just a little stressed that’s all” the bloodhound apologised.

“Aren’t we all” Barkley replied. “But seeing as both of you couldn’t catch two thieves, I’ve called in another inspector to assist you”.

The two inspectors were surprised by what their superior had told them. They were going to have a third inspector accompany them. Did Barkley really think that they were unable to catch Lupin and Sly so he called in someone else to help?

“But sir, I don’t see any reason why you need bring in somebody” Zenigata retorted. “I admit we were unlucky last night, but if you just give us another chance-”

“I know you two are willing to do your job” Barkley cut in. “But I can assure you, Inspector Walker’s assistance will benefit the both of you”.

“Inspector Walker?” Carmelita spoke up.

“Inspector Seth Walker is one of Interpol’s finest inspectors, he’s solved every single case he’s worked on” the badger informed the vixen. “He’ll be here by tomorrow so prepare yourselves”.

“Yes sir” Carmelita replied.

“Good, you are dismissed” Barkley said.

Carmelita and Zenigata exited the badger’s office and made their way to their respective offices. Zenigata turned to his colleague before asking.

“What do think he meant by, “prepare yourselves”?”

~Meanwhile~

At the Cooper Gang’s hideout, Sly was sitting at the table, still annoyed about last night. He felt humiliated by the fact that he was once again beaten by Lupin. Bentley and Murray were sat at the table as well, looking at the raccoon. Sly knew they were watching him so he spoke up.

“What’s the deal?”

“Sly, you know why we were unsuccessful right?” Bentley asked.

“I know, Lupin got the sword before we did” the raccoon replied.

“That’s not the only reason” Bentley said. Sly looked at Bentley in slight curiosity.

“What do you mean?” the raccoon asked.

“Sly, we both know you got distracted at the ball and why” the turtle replied.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about Bent-” Sly replied.

“Me and Murray both know that you’re still thinking about Carmelita” Bentley cut Sly off.

The raccoon turned his gaze away from his two friends, knowing that the turtle was right. He knew that ever since he became a thief again, his relationship with Carmelita had gone downhill. After the incident at Kaine Island, Sly had faked amnesia after being blasted by Dr. M’s laser. Since then, he had been working for Interpol as ‘Constable Cooper’ with Carmelita. However, after a while the raccoon started to miss being a thief. He realised that the police thing was just not for him, but that wasn’t the reason why he faked his amnesia.

He remembered the moment when he was in the grip of one of the mutants created by Dr. M, whilst the mandrill was strapped its chest. Whilst being crushed by the mutated freak, the raccoon could only think of Carmelita, thinking of what their relationship could be if he wasn’t a criminal. He had accepted his fate until none other than Carmelita herself had saved him from certain death. When he was hit by the laser from the mad scientist, it gave Sly the chance to finally be with the vixen. He was surprised that his trick lasted as long as it did.

But the raccoon also realised during his time at Interpol that he deeply missed his friends. He had known Bentley and Murray since his days at the orphanage, after Sly’s parents were murdered by the Fiendish Five, led by the Cooper Clan’s immortal nemesis, Clockwerk. They were closest thing he ever had to a family and he missed the good old times he spent with them.

Yet despite that, Sly still felt guilty for lying to Carmelita. After she caught him stealing from a museum, the raccoon was too ashamed to face her again. He felt like he had lost a piece of himself after that. His focus then went back to Bentley, who was awaiting a reply.

“Okay, I admit it, I was with Carmelita”.

“Sly, I understand if you miss her” Bentley said, trying to show his friend that he cared. “But you can’t let what happened in the past get in the way of a heist”.

Sly felt a bit hurt by what the turtle had said, but he knew he was right. If he wanted to beat Lupin, he had to concentrate on not get distracted by anything, even if it was the one he loved.

“You’re right Bentley” Sly replied. “And by the way, sorry for snapping at you last night, I was just a little on edge that’s all”.

“It’s fine Sly” the turtle said, accepting the apology.

Just then, in came a purple iguana, with baggy blue eyes, came into the room whilst smoking a cigarette. It was none other than Dimitri Lousteau, the Cooper Gangs slightly odd and eccentric researcher and scuba diver.

“Yo Crackerbox?!” Dimitri said to Sly. The raccoon turned his attention to the iguana.

“Yeah?” Sly replied.

“Heard you guys were talkin’ bout that foxy inspector” the iguana said.

“Something like that” Sly replied, rubbing his neck. “But don’t worry about it Dimitri”.

“Ah c’mon homie!” Dimitri said. “I know you got a thing for her, but-”.

“Dimitri, we’re aware of Sly’s feelings for Inspector Fox” Bentley interrupted the iguana. “But he can’t let it get in the way of our heists”.

Dimitri starred at the turtle for a moment. He was a little surprised by what Bentley had said and never expected to hear something like that from his mouth.

“Oh don’t be uncool little man” the iguana replied. “He can’t help it, surely you know what I mean”.

Dimitri froze when he realized what he had said. Bentley looked down to the ground with a sad expression on his face. Both Sly and Murray gave concerned looks toward their friend.

“Oh, uh” Dimitri stumbled on his words. “S-sorry man, didn’t mean to-”.

“No it’s alright Dimitri” Bentley said, cutting the iguana off. The turtle then started wheeling himself out towards the door.

“Bentley, you okay?” Sly asked, worried for his friend.

“I’ll be fine Sly, just need some time to myself”. Bentley replied before exiting the room.

Shortly after the turtle had left, Dimitri put his hand on his face in regret. The iguana felt like an idiot for saying what he said.

“Dammit, why did I say that?” Dimitri muttered to himself. Then Sly went over to the iguana and him on the back.

“Dimitri, don’t blame yourself” the raccoon said. But deep down, the raccoon knew that Bentley was a little troubled and why.

During the whole fiasco with Dr. M, the gang met Penelope, a mouse with lavender coloured fur. They met her when she was a member of a dog-fighting league, under the guise of the ‘Black Baron’. She later joined their gang as their specialist and later on developed a relationship with Bentley. But when Sly returned to the gang, Penelope had mysteriously disappeared and no matter how hard they tried to find her, she was nowhere to be found. No one was sure why the mouse had disappeared, but ever since Bentley had been in despair. No matter how hard he tried to hide it, his friends knew that the turtle was distraught that the one he loved was missing. Sly felt the most sympathy for Bentley. Penelope was the one person who showed him true love, despite being crippled and stuck to a wheelchair. She meant the world to the turtle and she was nowhere to be found. Silence invaded the room. Nobody spoke a word. Then Murray plucked up the courage and finally broke the silence.

“So Sly”.

“Yeah Murray?” the raccoon replied, looking up at the hippo.

“What are we gonna do now?” Murray asked his friend. “I mean, Lupin’s got the sword, so what’s our next move?”

Sly thought for a moment. Despite his efforts last night, he was still unable to beat Lupin. Not only that, the authorities were on higher alert, now that Lupin had stolen two valuable objects. Sly was still determined to beat the wolf, but he had to admit, he felt a little disheartened after his two failed attempts. Sly then finally answered the waiting hippo.

“Honestly Murray, I have no idea”.

~The following day~

At Interpol H.Q., Carmelita was in her office with a cup of coffee and was looking through the file on Lupin. It was the day when she and Zenigata were going to meet their new partner and he was going to arrive at any moment. She wondered what this Inspector Seth Walker was going to be like and how she would get on with him. The vixen was aware of his almost legendary status among Interpol so she assumed that with his assistance, she and Zenigata will finally be able to catch both Lupin and Sly. She then went back to looking through the files and get more knowledge on the wolf. From what she had read, Lupin had two partners who assisted him in his heists. First there was Daisuke Jigen, a highly skilled marksman and a former mobster before joining Lupin. Then there was Goemon Ishikawa XIII, a samurai with knowledge of numerous Japanese martial arts and a legendary swordsman. He is also a decedent of the legendary renegade samurai, Goemon Ishikawa. Carmelita looked through the files more until she came across another profile. It was of a vixen with white fur and in some pictures, her hair colour was different, ranging from black to brunette to blonde. She scanned to find her name before finding it.

Fujiko Mine

According to this Fujiko Mine’s profile, she’s Japanese and a thief. It also said that she has been affiliated with Lupin and his gang on numerous occasions, such as the incident in Cagliostro years ago. Carmelita thought to herself, feeling that she recognised this vixen from somewhere. She recalled seeing someone matching her description, but with blond hair at Dubois’ ball. Then her thoughts were interrupted by a feminine voice from behind her.

“I heard you’re on the Lupin case”.

The vixen turned around to see a mountain lion with fur and hair coloured dark blue and was wearing a yellow jacket and trousers. It was none other than Brio Venchesse, a fellow Interpol Inspector and good friend of Carmelita. The mountain lion was standing by the open door with her arms crossed and had a smirk on her face.

“Yeah, I’ve been looking through some files on his gang” replied Carmelita.

“And what have you found?” Brio asked.

“Just some information on his colleagues” Carmelita replied. “It seems he has a former gangster and a samurai as partners”.

“Pretty impressive, I gotta admit” Brio said.

“Tell me about it, Barkley gave me and Zenigata an earful for failing to catch him” the vixen said.

“That reminds me, what’s this Zenigata like?” the mountain lion asked.

“Well, he’s kind of like me” Carmelita replied. “Only he’s a bit more extreme”.

“Extreme?” Brio laughed. “Why does he get more pissed off than you do?”

“You can say that” Carmelita chuckled. She took a sip of her coffee before her friend continued their conversation.

“So I hear you and Zenigata are getting a new partner, the famous Seth Walker”.

“Yeah, he’s supposed to arrive today” Carmelita replied.

“Well no need to wait, cause he’s just got here” Brio told her. The vixen was surprised to hear this.

“He’s here already?!”

“Yeah, I’ll take you to him” Brio replied. They left Carmelita’s office and made their way to meet her knew partner. The mountain lion decided to tell her friend some more things about Seth Walker.

“You know, I kinda feel sorry for you” Brio spoke up. Carmelita looked at her in curiosity.

“How so?” she asked. Brio paused for a moment before replying to her friend’s question.

“Well, Inspector Seth Walker is one of the most experienced and successful Interpol inspectors to ever live”. She paused.

“However…”

The two inspectors turned to a corner and went to the entrance. Standing by the entrance’s door, stood an emperor penguin who was wearing a brown jacket, a dark blue tie and smoking a cigarette. He was shorter than Carmelita and Brio, but was slightly taller than Chief Barkley and seemed to be in his late thirties. He looked up to see the two inspectors and gave a smirk before walking towards them. It was then that Brio finally continued with what she was saying.

“He also happens to be a sarcastic, wiseass, son of a bitch”.

The penguin approached them and took his cigarette out of his beak before speaking.

“Well hello Inspector Venchesse” the penguin greeted Brio. “Lovely seeing you here”.

Brio furrowed her brows and rolled her eyes, clearly not impressed by the penguin’s flirt.

“Hello Inspector Walker” the mountain lion greeted the penguin. “It’s been a while”.

“Yeah, I was in America dealing with some meerkat who so happened to be a wannabe revolutionary, all because he was so pissed off about their recently elected president” Walker replied. “I can’t stand those damn ‘Social Justice Warriors’, always complaing about everything”.

Carmelita was surprised when she realised that this penguin was the legendary Inspector Seth Walker. She was honestly expecting him to be a dog or lion, not a penguin. Not that she thought it was wrong, she just didn’t expect it. Walker then noticed Carmelita standing next to Brio.

“Who may I ask?” the penguin asked.

“Inspector Carmelita Fox, sir” the vixen replied.

“Ah, the Inspector Carmelita Fox who I’ll be working with?” Walker replied. “It’s a pleasure meet you”.

The vixen and penguin shook hands. Walker then took another smoke of his cigarette before continuing to talk with Carmelita.

“I heard that there’s an Inspector Koichi Zenigata who will be working with us as well?” the penguin asked.

“Yes there is” Carmelita replied. “He’s just in his office at the moment”.

“Well I’ll see him in a bit, I just gotta say hi to the old man” Walker replied.

“If you’re talking about Barkley, he’s in his office” Brio informed the penguin.

“Thanks darlin’” Walker thanked the mountain lion. “Say, why don’t you and I go out for dinner sometime?”

“In your dreams” Brio retorted before leaving. Walker just shrugged his shoulders when she left.

“Ah Vencheese, always plays hard to get” he said. “Now if you excuse me Miss Fox, I’ll be seeing Barkley, catch you later.

Walker made his way to Barkley’s office, leaving Carmelita to watch him go. The vixen thought to herself that how she would deal with the bird.

~Meanwhile~

In an office at Louie Dubois’s mansion, six figures, with one sitting at a desk were gathered. The one sitting at the desk had a cigarette in one hand and was tapping his fingers on the wood with the other. The other five standing up consisted of two dogs and three wolves. The one at the desk was Louie Dubois himself and he was not in a good mood.

“Well, have the cops found Lupin yet?” the otter asked his henchmen. In the middle of the five, Rufus the doberman, answered his boss’s question.

“Sorry sir, but Lupin hasn’t been seen since two nights ago”.

He could see by Dubois’s face that he was not satisfied by his answer. Rufus felt nervous. He knew that whenever his boss was unhappy, you didn’t want to get in his way, despite his size. Dubois took a puff of his cigarette before getting out of his seat.

“Do you know how much I would have been paid for that sword?” he asked, not looking at his subordinates.

“But sir, you still get cash from your cartels in South America” Rufus spoke up. The otter then smashed his fist on the desk.

“Only a few grand!” Dubois snarled. “That sword was worth millions, and now that damn thief has his grimy hands on it!”

The henchmen tensed, including Rufus. Dubois turned his head to face the doberman, giving him the eyes of death.

“I think it’s time we get that sword back ourselves” the otter spoke.

“But sir, don’t you think we should let the cops handle it?” one of the henchmen, a pit bull, questioned.

Everyone in the room looked at the dog. Dubois walked right up to him. He was slightly shorter than the pit bull, but that didn’t stop the dog from feeling intimidated by his superior’s presence.

“What are you saying?” Dubois questioned. The pit bull gulped.

“It’s just I heard they got another inspector on the case” the pit bull replied, nervously. “And I hear he’s real good so maybe he might catch-”.

He was cut off by Dubois stubbing his cigarette out on the pit bull’s forehead. The dog yelped in pain and staggered back before dropping to the floor. He held his hands on his forehead, where the pain stung. Dubois walked over to the pit bull and knelt down to his length, facing him. The other four looked on, not wanting to intervene.

“I couldn’t give a rat’s ass if they got another inspector, we’re gonna find Lupin and make him give us the sword back!” the otter spat. “Do I make myself clear?”

The pit full nodded his head in fear, but his boss wasn’t satisfied.

“DO I?” he yelled.

“Y-yes s-sir” the pit bull stuttered. Dubois stood himself up after he got the answer he wanted.

“Good”.

The otter walked back to his desk and took a seat. He looked up at the others whilst the pit bull was still recovering from what happened.

“So you know what you gotta do?” Dubois asked. “Find Lupin, bring him to me and make sure you bring back the sword”.

“And if we only bring Lupin, we make him hand it over?” Rufus asked.

“Yes, do whatever it takes to make him spill the beans” Dubois replied.

“Gladly sir” Rufus said, whilst giving a sinister smile. The doberman remembered why he worked for the otter. He enjoyed doing jobs which involved hurting, or even killing someone.

Um, sir?” one of the wolves asked. Dubois turned to face him.

“What?” he asked.

“What about Sly Cooper, he was at the ball trying to steal the sword too” the wolf said. “Should we go after him as well?”

“Honestly, I don’t give a damn if that raccoon did try to steal from me” the otter replied. “After all, he wasn’t the one who stole my sword”.

Dubois then took out another cigarette and lit it before continuing to speak.

“Now get out there and bring me that sword!” he commanded. All the henchmen, led by Rufus, left the room and Dubois on his own. The otter turned around to look out the window. He took a puff of his cigarette before breaking the silence in the room.

“I’ll teach you what happens when you steal from me, Lupin the Third”.

~Two nights later~

It was the night on which the ball was being held. At Louie Dubois’s large mansion, over a hundred guests were there, drinking wine and dancing. On a rooftop, across from the mansion, Sly was looking through his binoculars at the police officers that were keeping guard. The day before the ball, Dubois received a calling card from Lupin, announcing his plans to steal the ancient sword. Sly knew that he had to get the sword before Lupin could. After all, he didn’t want to be upstaged by the wolf again.

“Ok Bentley, I can see the police down there and I gotta say, there defiantly a lot of them” Sly said to the turtle through his ear speaker.

In an alleyway, not too far away from the mansion, the Cooper Van was parked with Bentley inside at the computer monitors with Murray at the driver’s seat. The turtle had managed to hack into nearby CCTV cameras to see how many officers were there for himself.

“I see what you mean Sly, you’re going to have to be extra cautious if you want to get that sword” Bentley spoke through his head set. “See if you can find Inspector Fox or that Japanese inspector”.

“Got it Bentley” Sly replied. The raccoon scanned around before noticing a bloodhound who seemed to be searching the area.

“Think I found him” Sly said.

“That’s the right man” Betley replied. “Inspector Koichi Zenigata, the one who has made it his life goal to catch and arrest Lupin the Third”.

“So that’s the guy” Sly said. Then from the corner of his eye, the raccoon noticed another figure approaching Zenigata. He turned his attention to whoever it was walking down from the entrance of the ball. His eyes widened when he saw who it was, and it was none other than Carmelita Fox herself. She was wearing a black ball gown with a split down the left side of the skirt, similar to the one she wore in India all those years ago and was carrying a dark blue hand bag. The raccoon thought about how beautiful she looked in her attire, her blue hair was the same as it always was and her lipstick was as red as a rose.

“Carmelita…” Sly whispered to himself.

“What was that Sly?” Bentley asked.

“N… Nothing Bentley” Sly replied. The raccoon sighed to himself before continuing to watch the two inspectors.

“Well Ms. Fox, any sign of Lupin or Cooper?” Zenigata asked. The vixen just shook her head.

“No Mr. Zenigata, not yet anyway” replied Carmelita.

“Oh they’ll show up alright, Lupin always does” Zenigata growled, clenching his fist. He then noticed the outfit that Carmelita was wearing and gave the vixen a puzzled look.

“Uh, Ms. Fox, are you sure it’s really necessary to wear that?” the bloodhound asked. “We are here to catch two thieves”.

“Mr. Zenigata, I’m going to be undercover at the ball so if I spot either Cooper or Lupin, I’ll arrest them on sight” replied Carmelita.

“Undercover, why didn’t I think of that?!” Zenigata said to himself. “Smart move Ms. Fox!”

“Well I’m going back inside, if I spot either of those criminals, I’ll alert you” Carmelita informed the older inspector.

“And I’ll keep an eye out for them out here too” Zenigata replied. Carmelita entered back into the mansion and Zenigata continued his patrol of the area.

“Bentley, I’ve spotted Carmelita” Sly said to the turtle through his ear speaker. “It seems that she’s gone undercover at the ball”.

“Alright Sly, so you’ll need to be extra cautious when inside” Bentley replied. “You don’t want her recognising you or the whole plan will go up in smoke!”

“I’ll be fine Bentley” Sly replied. “But what I’m more concerned about is Lupin”

“I haven’t spotted him on the CCTV, so either he hasn’t arrived yet or he’s inside already” said Bentley.

“I guess I’ll have to hurry and get the sword before he does”. Sly replied.

He climbed down the building before going into an alleyway and changing into a black suit with a bow tie. The raccoon then snuck behind nearby trees to avoid detection from Zenigata and any nearby police officers. He then snuck into the front door and entered the large hall where the ball was being held. The place was almost crowded. Almost every guest was wearing black suits and ball gowns, with some men wearing white suits. There was a large circular space in the middle where some guests were ballroom dancing to the music being played by the band. It reminded Sly of Rajan’s ball in India, and his dance with Carmelita. He thought back to that moment when he had that dance with Carmelita. Sure it was to get to one of the Clockwerk pieces, but that moment with her has remained stuck in his mind ever since.

Sly walked past several guests before out of the corner of his eye, he noticed an otter with chocolate brown fur who was talking with a group of guests. He immediately recognised the otter as Louie Dubois, the host of the ball and the one who discovered the ancient sword.  Dubois was wearing a black suit over a white shirt and black tie. The raccoon also noticed that nearby there were dogs and wolves in black suits and dark sunglasses. He presumed that they were Dubois’s personal bodyguards. Sly’s attention was then brought to Bentley’s voice over his ear speaker.

“Sly, are you in?”

“Yeah, I’m in” Sly whispered. “I’ve spotted Dubois, and it seems that it’s not just the police he’s got protecting that sword”.

“You mean Dubois has his own security?” Bentley asked.

“Correct” the raccoon replied. “But something tells me that they’re more than just security guards”.

“Well, try and find a way to bypass them and get to the sword, if you can” Bentley said.

“Don’t worry Bentley” Sly replied. “I can get through this”.

~At that moment~

Not far away from Sly, Carmelita stood amongst the guests. She too noticed Dubois’s security guards around the ballroom and thought to herself that something seemed off about Dubois. She admitted that the otter seemed suspicious, but having security guards in the ballroom whilst her and Zenigata’s men were outside seemed a bit extreme. She could understand if the otter was a bit paranoid about Lupin stealing the sword, as well as Sly Cooper. But if Dubois had his own security, there was no need for the police to be there as well. However, the vixen then thought about how this could be her chance to finally catch Sly Cooper and get pay back for what he did to her. Carmelita just shook her head to get the painful memory out of her head and continued with her job. The vixen then decided to listen in to what Dubois was saying to the guests he was talking with. She walked up to Dubois and the guests and stopped to listen in, whilst looking the other way, acting like she wasn’t listening at all.

“It’s really amazing that sword of yours Mr. Dubois” said a cat with grey fur.

“Why thank you monsieur” replied Dubois.

“I say, do you plan on giving the sword to the museum?” asked a badger.

“Well, I might do so” replied Dubois.

“But Mr. Dubois, aren’t you worried at all about this Lupin the Third stealing the sword?” asked a lioness. When she asked this, Dubois gave a confident smirk before giving the lioness his answer.

“Well, I’ll admit I was a little concerned when I received Lupin’s calling card”

“I don’t blame you!” the badger stated.

“But thanks to my security, as well as the assistance of the police, I’m pretty confident that Lupin won’t be able steal the sword”. The otter seemed pretty sure of himself. Carmelita thought if he was being too sure that Lupin wouldn’t have a chance to get the sword.

“But I’ve heard that Sly Cooper is on the prowl as well” the cat spoke up. “Aren’t you concerned about him at all?”

“Like I said earlier monsieur, with my security and the police’s assistance, there is no chance that either Lupin or Sly Cooper will succeed in taking that sword” Dubois replied confidently.

Carmelita thought to herself that Louie Dubois was definitely full of himself. In some ways, the vixen kind of wanted to see the otter’s face if either Sly or Lupin stole his precious sword. But then out of the corner of her eye, Carmelita noticed what seemed to be a raccoon wearing a black suit amongst the other guests. From his facial features, the vixen swore she recognised him. Then it came to her, she thought it must be him, and she wasn’t going to hesitate to find out. She was about to walk straight up to the raccoon and see if her gut feeling was right.

“Excuse me madam?” said a male voice. She stopped in her tracks before turning her head to whoever was talking to her. The vixen was then face to face with a wolf with brown fur, brown hair and a small moustache.

“Don’t mind me asking, but would you care for a dance?”

Carmelita was caught off guard by the wolf’s question. She wasn’t sure whether or not to accept his offer. She took a good look at the wolf and thought that there was something about him that bugged her. It wasn’t his looks, although she had to admit he was rather handsome. It was more like the vixen suspected him of being the certain master thief who sent the calling card to Dubois. But on the other hand, she wasn’t sure if this wolf who was asking her for a dance was really Lupin the Third or not. He had the same fur colour as Lupin, not to mention that he was a wolf as well. But she then realised that there were other wolves at the ball as well, some with same fur colour as this certain one. She didn’t want to offend the wolf if it turned out that he wasn’t Lupin at all. But it then came to her that if the raccoon she saw earlier was who she thinks it is, she could try and get his attention by dancing with the wolf and it would confirm her suspicions. After all, if it was Ringtail, seeing her dance with another man would definitely catch his eye.

“Well, okay” she replied.

The wolf then took her hand and led her to the dance floor. They were surrounded by other couples dancing together gracefully. The two of them stopped before the wolf took both of her hands and they both started ballroom dancing to the music. Carmelita was surprised by the wolf’s dancing skills. His moves were nearly flawless, they perfectly synched with the music and never seemed to make a misstep. The vixen felt something within her that she wasn’t expecting to feel when dancing with the wolf. Was she enjoying herself? It seemed so.

Sly was keeping a close eye on Dubois to see if the otter would lead him to the sword’s whereabouts. The raccoon noticed Dubois leaving the group of guests he was chatting with to go off somewhere else. He guessed that the otter was heading to wherever the sword was located so Sly decided to tail Dubois and see for himself. But then, the raccoon was distracted by something he noticed out of the corner of his eye. He turned his head towards the dance floor to see Carmelita, dancing with some guy. The moment he saw this, the raccoon felt something inside that was triggered by seeing Carmelita dance with another man. He was aware that they were no longer together, but the sight of her with another man made bothered Sly much more than he imagined. The raccoon was too distracted by what he saw that Dubois was now out of his sight. Unbeknownst to him, Carmelita had noticed the raccoon watching her and the wolf, confirming her suspicions of who he was. The vixen and the wolf then finished their dance before the wolf said.

“Thanks for the dance darling”. Then the wolf took Carmelita’s hand and kissed it before disappearing into the crowd. The vixen was blushing now, still a little shocked by receiving a kiss on the hand. Sly on the other hand was almost fuming. Not only did this stranger dance with Carmelita, but he also kissed her on the hand. The raccoon was glaring at the wolf until he was brought back to reality by a feminine voice behind him. He turned around and found himself face to face with none other than Carmelita herself.

“Excuse me, but have I seen you somewhere” the vixen asked. Sly just gave her a smirk.

“You might have” Sly replied. “I’ve been in and out of the city”. For some reason, the raccoon had a feeling that she knew he was there the whole time.

“By the way” Sly spoke up. “Care for a dance?”

~Meanwhile~

Whilst Sly was being confronted by Carmelita, Zenigata was still outside patrolling the area, hoping he’ll spot Lupin attempting to steal the sword. His search was then interrupted by a male voice from behind.

“Inspector Zenigata?”

The bloodhound turned around to come face to face with Louie Dubois.

“Good evening Mr, Dubois” Zenigata greeted the otter.

“Don’t mind me asking, but have you spotted any thieving wolves or raccoons in your travels?” Dubois asked.

“No Mr, Dubois, not yet at least” replied Zenigata.

“Well I must thank you once again for the extra security monsieur, I very much appreciate it” Dubois thanked the Japanese inspector.

“Just doing my duty sir” Zenigata told the smaller otter. There was something about Dubois that the bloodhound didn’t like. He was aware of some of the allegations surrounding the otter, but he also aware of how he was never given a proper investigation due to the so-called lack of evidence. Yet still, he couldn’t shake the feeling that the otter was hiding something. Then an idea struck Zenigata which could assist him on finding Lupin, if he was at the ball.

“Uh Mr. Dubois” the bloodhound spoke up. “Wouldn’t you mind if I took a look at where you are holding the sword?”

The otter seemed puzzled by the inspector’s question. He wasn’t sure why Zenigata wanted to see where the sword was.

“It’s strictly police business” Zenigata informed Dubois.

“Well if you insist monsieur” Dubois replied.

The otter then led Zenigata inside his mansion, through the ballroom and down a cellar like hallway. They then reached a door, which had a doberman in a black suit standing outside. He turned his attention to the two approaching figures.

“How’s things here Rufus?” Dubois asked the doberman.

“Everything’s secure Mr. Dubois” the doberman called Rufus replied.

“You see Inspector” Dubois said, turning to Zenigata. Everything’s safe and sound”.

“Hold on a sec” Zenigata said. “Why don’t we take a look inside?”

“Well I don’t see why we should” Dubois replied. “You heard what Rufus said, it’s all secure”.

“It may seem like it, but we should take a look, just to be on the safe side” Zenigata insisted.

“Well okay Inspector” Dubois replied before Rufus unlocked the door.

“But I can assure you, there is no way that anyone can get to the sword without tripping the security”.

The two stopped when they stepped inside the room. Dubois was expecting to see the ancient sword in its display, safe and sound. Both the bloodhound and the otter were silent.

“Rufus”

“Yes sir?”

“You said that everything was secure, right?” Dubois asked the doberman.

“Yes sir” Rufus replied. The doberman looked down to the otter to see him clenching his fist before looking up at him.

“Then would you kindly tell me… WHERE THE HELL IS THE DAMN SWORD?!”

~Back at the ballroom~

After their encounter, both Sly and Carmelita were dancing together, slowly. They both eyed each other the whole time. Sly had a feeling that the vixen was aware of who she was dancing with. She probably danced with the other guy just to get the thief’s attention. His thoughts were interrupted by her voice.

“I knew I would find you here Ringtail”. Sly smirked when she called him by his nickname.

“It’s been awhile since I’ve heard that” the raccoon replied.

“Still the same as always” Carmelita said.

“Same with you Inspector” replied Sly. “Still as beautiful as ever”.

“Don’t think the flirty chit-chat will get make me forget about what you did to me” the vixen growled. Sly knew what she was talking about. He knew what he had done was wrong. Lying to her about having amnesia and choosing the thieving business over her. Yet he was determined to make peace with her.

“Carm, I’m sorry” Sly apologised.

“Sorry, is that all you can say?” Carmelita asked coldly. The raccoon gave her a sad look.

“I know what I did was wrong” Sly told her. “But Carm, it’s in my blood, I’m a thief and always will be”.

“I know” Carmelita replied. “Which gives me more of a reason to arrest you”.

“Listen Carmelita” Sly said. “Even if you’re still mad at me, it won’t change how I feel about you”.

“If you really did have feelings for me, you wouldn’t have lied” the vixen replied harshly.

“Please just listen to me” Sly said. He then held her by her arms before saying.

“Carmelita, I lov-”.

He was cut off mid-way before he noticed police officers and Dubois’ security guards swarming the ballroom. Sly was thinking if they were aware that he was at the ball and had come to arrest him. He looked at Carmelita, who also seemed bewildered by what was happening at that moment. Then two figures advanced into the dancing space. Sly noticed that they were Louie Dubois and Inspector Zenigata.

“Listen up!” Zenigata called out. “No one is to leave here until we say so, we’ve just found out that-”.

“MY SWORD HAS BEEN STOLEN!” Dubois yelled, cutting off Zenigata.

There were gasps among the guests and they all started muttering about what they had heard. Sly was lost for words. Once again, he had been beaten at stealing another prized property. The raccoon thought to himself that it must be Lupin. His thoughts were interrupted by Dubois’s enraged voice echoing around the ballroom.

“QUICKLY, FIND THE BASTARD WHO’S GOT THE BALLS TO STEAL FROM ME!”

“We will Mr. Dubois” Zenigata tried to reassure the otter.

Then, Dubois was approached by a wolf. Sly recognised him as the wolf who danced with Carmelita. He seemed to be speaking with Dubois.

“He’s right Mr. Dubois, the thief can’t have gone too far” the wolf said, seeming to try and calm down the angered otter.

“He better not have!” Dubois snapped back. “Or the son of a bitch who did this is gonna regret it!”

The wolf then turned around to walk off in the other direction. But he was then stopped by Zenigata, who had his hand on the wolf’s shoulder. The bloodhound was glaring at him.

“Again with that old trick Lupin?”

Everyone looked at the wolf after hearing what Zenigata had said, even Sly and Carmelita were watching. The wolf then gave a grin before turning to the inspector.

“You’ve definitely gotten better at this Pops” the wolf said. “I guess you’ve been after me for too long”.

The wolf removed his brown hair and moustache to reveal himself to be one other than Lupin the Third himself. Carmelita wanted to kick herself at that moment. The wolf she danced was Lupin after all, and she fell for his disguise. Sly on the other hand was both shocked and annoyed at what had happened. Not only did Lupin steal the sword before he did, but the punk actually had the nerve to dance with the woman he cared for the most. Dubois was bewildered at the situation. The one who had stolen the sword was standing right in front of him.

“Sacrebleu!” the otter cried out.

Then police officers and Dubois's men started to surround the thief, blocking his way of escape. Zenigata took out his handcuffs, preparing to bring the wolf to justice.

“Lupin, hand over the sword and surrender” the bloodhound commanded his nemesis. Lupin just chuckled before replying.

“Now where’s the fun in that?”

“You’re surrounded, there’s no way to escape” Zenigata growled.

“Oh come on now Pops” Lupin said. “You haven’t even seen my next trick yet”.

Just then, Lupin opened his black suit up to reveal around twenty or more fireworks hidden underneath. They were all lit up and ready to fire. Then they all flew up and burst, flashing numerous different colours. Everyone was confused and blinded by the display, even Dubois and his men. Amid all the chaos, Carmelita took out her shock pistol from her hand bag and aimed it at Lupin. But to her surprise, the thief was nowhere to be seen. She assumed he had escaped whilst the fireworks were ablaze. She then noticed that Sly was gone as well.

“Damn that raccoon” the vixen cursed.

Carmelita went over to Zenigata, who was recovering from the firework frenzy. Rufus was at Dubois’s side, trying to help him in any way he can. The otter just smacked his hand away, clearly still angered about Lupin stealing the sword.

“Ms. Fox, any sign of Lupin?” Zenigata asked the vixen.

“I’m afraid not, he got away” Carmelita replied.

“Dammit” Zenigata cursed.

“That’s not all, Sly Cooper was here too” Carmelita informed the bloodhound. “He was also after the sword”.

“Seriously?!” the older inspector exclaimed. “Well where is he now?”

“He got away too” the vixen replied.

“Well let’s not just stand here, we have to find them both!” Zenigata stated.

Both inspectors ran outside to the front of the mansion, in search for the two thieves. They searched the area before hearing the sounds of what seemed to be a motorcycle around the corner of the mansion. Suddenly, speeding out was Lupin on a motorcycle. He was back in his usual attire and had a large black duffel back wrapped around him, with the sword most likely inside it. He sped past the two inspectors and drove off into the distance. Zenigata clenched his fists and started growling.

“LUPIN!” the bloodhound yelled at the top of his lungs. “Crap, crap, crap!”

“Mr. Zenigata, if we hurry now, we might be able to catch him” Carmelita said to the angered inspector.

“You’re right Ms. Fox!” Zenigata cried out. “Quickly, let’s get to the cars and chase that rotten little bastard down!”

The two inspectors ran off to the police cars in an attempt to chase the wolf down. Unbeknownst to them, up on a nearby building, Sly was also watching Lupin ride off with the sword. The raccoon had gotten back into his usual clothing again. His eye was twitching in annoyance at once again being outwitted by the wolf. His thoughts were then interrupted by Bentley’s voice over his ear speaker.

“Sly, what’s happening?”

“We got beaten to it” Sly replied. “Lupin has the sword”.

“What?!” Bentley cried out. “But how?”

“Don’t ask” Sly replied.

“Well, I guess we should get back to the safe house before the cops find us” Bentley insisted. But Sly was not ready to give up yet.

“Hold on a sec Bentley” Sly said. “If Lupin stole the sword from Dubois, then I’m gonna have to take it from him”.

“But Sly, are you sure that’s a good idea?” Bentley asked worriedly. “Lupin might be dangerous”.

“Bentley, I’ve been up against an immortal owl and a crazed scientist, I’m pretty sure I can handle some scrawny wolf” Sly said angrily. The raccoon switched off his ear speaker before sprinting toward the direction of Lupin. Outside the entrance of the mansion, a vixen with snow white fur and blond hair, wearing a light blue ball gown was watching Sly run off after the wolf. She smiled to herself.

“Well Lupin, it seems you’ve made a new friend”.

~Ten minutes later~

Several blocks away from the mansion, Lupin was still riding his motorcycle with the duffel bag on his back. He had slowed down a bit after assuming he was in the clear. The streets were silent and there seemed to be no cars around. The wolf chuckled to himself, thinking about how Zenigata must be feeling at the moment.

“Oh boy, Pops just never gives up”. Lupin said to himself.

Just then in the distance, the wolf spotted a figure standing in the middle of the road. Lupin stopped the motorcycle just halfway from the stranger. He then recognised the figure as the raccoon from the night at the museum. Lupin also saw that he was carrying his unusual can in his hand and was staring the wolf down. Then Lupin just gave a cocky smile at the raccoon.

“Well, looks like we meet again” Lupin said. “Sly Cooper, wasn’t it?”

“That’s right, Lupin the Third” Sly replied. He was also giving Lupin a smile.

“Let me guess, you’re after the sword right?” the wolf asked. “Well sorry about that pal, I’ve got it first”.

“But is really safe in your hands?” Sly asked sarcastically. “Why don’t you let a real thief take care of it?”

When he heard what the raccoon said, Lupin raised his eyebrow before laughing at what Sly said.

“A real thief?!” the wolf laughed. “Excuse me, but how long have you been in the business?”

Sly just glared at him, cane in hand, seeming to be ready to fight.

“Well I’ve been doing this ever since you were a kid” Lupin said. “Hell I started when I was just a kid”.

“You may have been a thief long before me, but that doesn’t mean you’re better” Sly said, challenging the older thief. Upon hearing this, Lupin eyed the raccoon, seemingly ready to do something.

“You wanna try me?”

Sly got into a fighting stance, cane in hand and ready to make his move. Lupin started the motorcycle up again, seeming to prepare to drive at the raccoon. But before they could make a move, they were interrupted by a feminine voice shouting at them.

“FREEZE!”

Both thieves turned to see none other than Carmelita Fox herself. She was wearing her trademark outfit and had her shock pistol raised and ready to fire.

“Well if it isn’t the lovely lady I had the pleasure of dancing with” Lupin said.

When he heard this, Sly glared at the wolf for flirting with the vixen. Carmelita ignored Lupin’s flirtatious comment and continued to aim her weapon at the two thieves.

“Arsène Lupin the Third, you are under arrest” Carmelita said harshly before turning to Sly.

“And you too Sly Cooper, you’ll both come with me now”. The inspector commanded.

“Come now, you can’t possibly arrest the two of us on your own” Lupin chuckled.

“Inspector Zenigata will be here soon” Carmelita replied.

“Ah, so you’re with Pops” Lupin exclaimed. “I’m surprised that such a beautiful woman like you would work with that old fart!”

Carmelita was starting to get irritated by Lupin’s flirtatious comments. She thought to herself that he was worse than Sly. She was not the only one, Sly was tired of Lupin trying to charm the vixen. It was almost as if the wolf was trying to steal her away from him, which was ironic as both the raccoon and the vixen were no longer together. Just then out of nowhere, a yellow Fiat 500 zoomed up to the trio. It stopped immediately, blocking Carmelita’s view of both Sly and Lupin. In the driver’s seat was Jigen and in the back was Goemon, sitting calmly. Jigen opened the front-left door and Lupin hopped of the motorcycle and sprinted towards the car. The wolf jumped in, shut the door and the car started up again. Before they left however, Lupin poked his head out the window, waving to both Sly and Carmelita.

“Bye, catch you later!” Lupin said before the car sped off into the night.

Carmelita clenched her fist in anger until she turned her attention to Sly, who was still standing there. The raccoon noticed her and quickly climbed up the nearest building and disappearing.

“COOPER!” she yelled, her voice echoing into the night sky.

Story, Louie Dubois and Rufus (c) me
Loading...
Outside the city, where a moderately large house was located, three figures were gathered in the living room. The three were all sitting on brown couches, two on one and one on the other. The two sitting on one couch were a wolf and a rabbit. The wolf was holding a ruby in his hand whilst the rabbit casually smoked a cigarette. One the other couch, a cheetah was sitting with his eyes closed in a seiza fashion, whilst holding his long wooden pole, which was actually a katana. This was none other than Lupin the Third and his gang, at their hideout with the ‘Dei Pulchritudinis’, which they had stolen last night.

“So Lupin” the rabbit spoke up.

“Yes Jigen?” Lupin replied.

Now that we got the ruby, what do you think we should do now?” the rabbit called Jigen asked.

“Glad you asked” replied the wolf. “I think it’s about time we planned our next job”. Jigen just glanced at Lupin.

“Seriously, you mean you want to steal something else?!”

“That’s right Jigen” Lupin replied. “Seeing as we’re my grandfather’s home country, why not go on a thieving spree?”

Jigen just stared at his wolf companion, thinking if he was crazy. Then he remembered that this was Lupin, he always has these crazy ideas flowing around in his head. Then the rabbit remembered the raccoon he saw last night.

“By the way, that raccoon from last night, you have any idea who he was?” Jigen asked Lupin.

“The guards said his name was Sly Cooper, and it seems that he’s famous around here” the wolf replied.

“Well I’ve never heard of the guy” Jigen said.

“Neither have I until recently” said Lupin. “But from what I gather, he comes from a family of master thieves”.

“Boy, doesn’t that sound familiar?” Jigen said.

“I was thinking the exact same thing!” Lupin exclaimed. “But you know what?”

“What?” the rabbit answered.

“I’ve got this feeling that we’ll see this Sly Cooper again sometime” the wolf replied with a smirk on his face. Jigen knew that look. It meant that his companion was planning more than just stealing again.

“So what you’re saying is you plan on messing with this Sly Cooper guy, huh?” the rabbit asked.

“Well, you can say that” Lupin replied. “But what I really want to see is what this guy is made of”.

“So you wish to challenge this other thief, is that what you’re saying Lupin?” the cheetah sitting on the other couch abruptly asked.

“You read me like a book Goemon” replied Lupin. The cheetah known as Goemon opened his eyes slightly to look at the wolf.

“You’re one to forge rivalries” Goemon spoke back.

“Well then, what’s our next move?” asked Jigen. Lupin then picked up a nearby newspaper and flicked through a couple of pages before stopping and pointing.

“There, that’s our next target”. The page the wolf had stopped at was an article of a ball being held in two days by an otter called ‘Louie Dubois’. Dubois is a billionaire with several business estates across the globe. However, he has been suspected of being involved in illegal activities, such as drug trafficking, but has never been properly investigated due to ‘lack of evidence’.

“Boy, this guy definitely sounds shady if you ask me” Jigen spoke up.

“You’re typical rich boy Jigen, always has something he wants to hide” Lupin replied.

“So what are we stealing from this slimeball?” asked Jigen. Lupin then pointed to a photo of what appeared to be a sword. It had a golden handle which shone like the sun and had little diamonds implanted in it. The blade was shining silver and looked as sharp as a kitchen knife.

“Geez, now that’s some sword!” Jigen exclaimed.

“It’s some sort of ancient sword from Medieval England” Lupin explained about the sword. “It wasn’t pretty when Dubois discovered it, but after cleaning it up a bit, it looks as good as new!”

“Now I’m interested” Jigen said.

“And Dubois is holding this ball in celebration for his discovery, am I right?” Goemon asked.

“Yep, but he won’t be celebrating for long” Lupin replied with a smirk on his face.

“But wait, wouldn’t the police be there?” Jigen asked the wolf. “I mean after you stole that ruby, they’ll definitely have that party crawling with cops, even Zenigata might be there!”

“No worries Jigen” replied Lupin. “I’m thinking of my plan at this very moment”.

~Meanwhile~

At the Cooper Gang’s safe house, Sly and the gang were already planning their next move. It so happened to be that they were also planning to steal the ancient sword from Louie Dubois’s party in two days.

“So how should we do this Bentley?” Sly asked his turtle friend.

“Well, the ball will not just be full of guests, there will police officers everywhere, making sure that the sword won’t be stolen” Bentley replied. “So you’ll have to blend in with the guests”.

“Should be a piece of cake” Sly replied. “I'm no stranger when it comes to disguises”.

“I’ve done some more research, it seems that Inspector Fox herself will be attending the ball, definitely so she can catch you” Bentley informed the raccoon. The moment the turtle mentioned her name, Sly thought back to his time at Interpol and with Carmelita. He had a sad look on his face which both Bentley and Murray noticed.

“Hey Sly, you okay?” Murry asked, bringing the raccoon back to reality.

“I’m fine Murray” Sly replied, giving the hippo a smile.

“Anyways” Bentley cut in. “It also seems that she won’t be alone, there’s also an Interpol inspector from Japan called Inspector Koichi Zenigata”.

“So we have two inspectors on the scene?” Sly replied.

“But it also seems that this Inspector Zenigata has been chasing after Lupin as well” Bentley said. When he heard what the turtle said, a smirk appeared on Sly’s face.

“Looks like Lupin has his very own Carmelita” the raccoon said.

“But speaking of Lupin, it’s likely that he’ll be going after the sword as well” Bentley said.

“Not if we get it first!” Sly exclaimed.

“But if he is, then he’ll most likely do the same trick he did at the museum” Bentley spoke up.

“You mean disguise himself?” asked Murray. Sly then stood up from his seat with his cane in his hand.

“Well then I’ll have to keep my eyes open for that scrawny wolf at the ball”.

~At Interpol HQ~

Both Carmelita and Zenigata stood in front of Barkley’s desk whilst the badger was briefing them on the ball.

“So you both know what to expect from the ball, don’t you?” Barkley asked.

“Yes sir, you want us to protect the sword from both Lupin and this Sly Cooper fellow” replied Zenigata.

“That is correct Inspector Zenigata, we’ll be relying you two to bring both Cooper and Lupin to justice” Barkley informed. “Am I clear?”

“Yes sir!” both Carmelita and Zenigata replied.

“Good, Ms. Fox would you show Mr Zenigata around and give him some more info on Cooper?” the badger asked.

“Yes sir” the vixen replied. She led the bloodhound out of Barkley’s office and gave him a little tour of the building. During their walk, Carmelita decided to make conversation with Zenigata, so she could learn more about Lupin from the one who was on his case.

“So Mr. Zenigata?” the vixen spoke up.

“Yes Ms. Fox?” replied Zenigata.

“I’d like to ask you about your experiences with Lupin the Third, if you don’t mind?” Carmelita asked.

“Gladly” Zenigata replied. “For years now I’ve been chasing after that scrawny little bastard across the world, from Japan, to Egypt and to Cagliostro”.

From what the bloodhound had told her, Carmelita thought about how similar she was to Zenigata. Both of them had been running after a thief across the globe and have never given up. Yet the vixen still had to admire Zenigata for how much longer he has been going after Lupin than she has been after Sly.

“But with us two together, we could both finally catch that damn Lupin and Sly Cooper and bring them to justice!” Zenigata exclaimed whilst clenching his fist. This surprised Carmelita, this bloodhound was still determined to catch the wolf, no matter what. This also gave the vixen more confidence in catching the thieves, especially Sly.

“It’s good to see that someone is as eager for justice as I am” Carmelita spoke up. Zenigata turned to her, seeming glad to hear what the vixen had said.

“Well Ms. Fox, I believe that we’re going to get along well”.

Story (c) me
Loading...
It was the next morning after the ‘Dei Pulchritudinis’ was stolen from the museum and the police force was in an uproar. Almost every cop in the force was in the building, all of them working and filing reports of the incident from last night. Everyone was talking about it, the news, the public, you couldn’t get away from it. It wasn’t all just about the ruby being stolen, people were mostly talking about the one who stole the hundred year old ruby and beat the infamous Sly Cooper to it. They all talked about how he was bringing his grandfather’s legacy back to France or what his next target was. It was clear that Lupin the Third had taken France by storm.

However, during all this commotion, the only one who seemed to remain calm throughout all of it was none other than Inspector Carmelita Montoya Fox of Interpol. She was sitting at her desk, wearing her trademark yellow leather jacket, dark blue jeans, yellow gloves and brown combat-like boots. She had heard about what had happened last night, but two things were bothering her. The first one being who this ‘Lupin the Third’ guy was. She had never heard of him before, but somehow, everyone else did. The second thing on her mind being that Sly Cooper was there. She thought back to when she last saw him, that night she caught him stealing, thus discovering that he had lied to her all this time. How many months ago was that? She questioned in her mind. On the other hand, she was still mad at the raccoon for faking amnesia all that time. All the times they had spent together, that day at the Eiffel Tower, where he unexpectedly kissed her on the cheek. He faked all of it, but what for? But then, she remembered that she wasn’t so innocent herself. She herself had lied to him, believing he had actually got amnesia, she told him that he was her partner, ‘Constable Cooper’. But she did it because she wanted to have a relationship with him, without having to constantly chase him everywhere and fire her shock pistol at him. But that all happened on Kaine Island, that was all in the past. But still, she still felt something for the ring-tailed thief.

"Um, Ms. Fox?” came a voice outside her door, bring the vixen back to reality.

“Yes, come in” she called back. Then, in came a dog in police uniform.

“Chief Barkley wants to see you” the dog said.

“Okay, thanks” replied Carmelita. “This must be about last night” she thought to herself.

The vixen then made her way to her mentor’s office. She wondered if he was going to give her a scolding for not being at the crime scene last night. Over the years, she had gotten used to Barkley yelling at her for failing to capture Sly Cooper all those times. She entered his office to see Chief Barkley sitting at his desk, smoking his cigar. The small badger was slightly chubby with brown fur and had a grey moustache and eyebrows. He looked up to see her come in to his office. He motioned the vixen to close the door behind her before finally speaking to her.

“Well, I guess you’ve heard the news Ms. Fox?” he asked.

“About the ‘Dei Pulchritudinis’ and this Lupin the Third, yes Chief” replied Carmelita.

“Well, now we have a big deal on our hands” said Barkley. Carmelita just looked at the badger in confusion.

“Sorry?”

“Ms. Fox, you know that we are dealing with, not only with Sly Cooper, but Lupin the Third himself!” Barkley stated.

“I’m sorry Chief, but I’m not familiar with this Lupin person” said Carmelita. Chief Barkley just starred at her.

“You mean you’ve never heard of Arsène Lupin the Third?” Barkley asked the vixen.

“No Chief, I can’t say I have” replied Carmelita. Barkley just sighed before handing a bunch of photo’s to the vixen then getting up out of his seat and looking out the window, cigar in hand. Carmelita looked through the photos, all with Lupin in them. Many of them had Lupin being chased by cops or driving some fancy car. One that stood out to her the most had Lupin running but not wearing his usual attire, but instead wearing some sort of black outfit. She was then brought back to reality when her boss spoke again.

“Well Ms. Fox” said the badger. “Prepare yourself”.

~Meanwhile~

At the safe house near the city, where the Cooper Gang were hiding out from the authorities, the gang were at the meeting table. Sly was sitting at one side, with his hand holding his head and cane leaning on the table. Bentley was just next to him, typing on his laptop, doing some sort of research. Murray on the other hand just sat next to the turtle, twiddling his large thumbs nervously. Sly was deep in thought. Everyone was talking about this Lupin guy and he felt like he was the only one who didn’t even know who he was. Every cop in the city was looking for the wolf that stole the ruby.

“Well Bentley, you got anything on this guy?” asked Sly.

“Not yet Sly, but I’m close” replied Bentley. The turtle was in fact looking up any information about Lupin. He searched high and low through police data bases for anything about the wolf thief.

“Say, where’s Dimitri?” asked Murray.

“Probably still has a hangover” replied Sly. Their lizard ally, Dimitri Lousteau, was known for drinking a bit too much and was probably out all night, chasing girls.

“I’ve found something!” Bentley cried. Both Sly and Murray gathered around the turtle’s laptop to see what he had found about Lupin.

“What have you found Bentley?” Sly asked.

“Well, it’s not much, but his full name is Arsène Lupin the Third, he’s in his early-thirties and from the looks of it, he’s been in the thieving business since he was in his early twenties, maybe even younger” Bentley told the others.

“So this guy’s been a thief for that long” said Sly.

“No wonder he managed to steal the ruby without being caught, he must be a professional!” Murray said. Sly then looked at him with one eyebrow raised.

“Hey, we’re professionals too!” said Sly.

“There’s more!” Bentley said.

“Really, what?” Sly asked.

“Well, it seems that Lupin is also from a family of thieves, just like you Sly” Bentley replied.

Sly raised his eyebrows in surprise. He couldn’t believe that this Lupin guy also comes from a family of thieves. The raccoon then thought that he may know something about one of Lupin’s relatives if they had a look.

“Hey Bentley, why not see if he has any well-known relatives, maybe his father or grandfather” Sly asked.

“Sure thing Sly” Bentley replied before typing at his laptop again. It didn’t take long for the turtle to find something.

“Got something” Bentley said.

“Okay, what?” Sly asked.

“It appears that Lupin does have a famous relative, his grandfather to be precise” Bentley replied.

“His grandfather?” Sly asked.

“Yes, he is in fact the grandson of the infamous thief, Arsène Lupin, otherwise known as the ‘Gentleman Thief’” replied Bentley. Sly then wondered to himself after hearing that name.

“Arsène Lupin?”

“What is it Sly?” asked Bentley.

“I don’t know, but now that I think about it, I may have heard that name somewhere before”.

~Interpol HQ~

“Arsène Lupin?!” cried Carmelita, surprised to hear that familiar name. “You mean the infamous thief from over a hundred years ago?!”

“That is correct Ms. Fox” replied Chief Barkley, still smoking his cigar. The badger was back at his desk again, going through files on Lupin.

“As you may know, Arsène Lupin, also known as the Gentleman Thief, was the infamous thief who took France by storm in the early 20th Century. His skills of thieving were legendary and he stole many riches without ever getting caught” the badger added.

“From what I’ve heard sir, he never failed a single heist” said Carmelita.

“That is possible, seeing how skilled and clever he was” replied Barkley.

“But didn’t he go missing at some point?” Carmelita asked.

“Yes” Barkley replied. “After pulling off another successful heist, he mysteriously vanished, never to be seen again and the name Arsène Lupin became the stuff of legend” The badger then finished his cigar before putting it in the ashtray.

“That is until years later, another thief came along with the same skills as Lupin” Barkley added.

“He claimed himself to be Arsène Lupin the Second”.

“Arsène Lupin’s son?” asked Carmelita.

“Correct Ms. Fox” replied Barkley. “Like his father, Arsène Lupin the Second stole many riches and always managed to escape from the authorities”. Chief Barkley then stopped briefly.

“However, his career was cut much shorter than his father’s”.

Carmelita looked at her boss in curiosity.

“How so sir?” the vixen asked.

“One day, he was on a train when it was bombed” replied Barkley.

“Bombed?!” asked Carmelita, surprised by what she had heard.

“Yes, apparently the train was bombed by someone known as ‘King’” Barkley stopped for a moment. “Arsène Lupin the Second was killed on that train”.

“Good lord” Carmelita just said before Barkley continued.

“It wasn’t until years later when someone else came along, with the same exact skills as both Arsène Lupin and Arsène Lupin the Second”.

“And that somebody would be Arsène Lupin the Third? Carmelita cut in.

“Correct” said Barkley. “He was quite young when he started, early twenties or something”.

When she heard this, Carmelita thought to herself, “Sounds familiar”.

“What all three Lupin’s have in common is that before they committed a crime, they always sent a calling card to whoever they were stealing from, as well as masters of disquise” added Barkley.

Hearing this also reminded the vixen of a certain thief who uses calling cards. But instead, this thief she was thinking of always left their calling card after they committed the theft.

“But even when he first started out, Lupin the Third always managed to pull off a successful heist without ever being caught by the authorities, not even Interpol have been able to catch him for all these years, just like his father and grandfather before him” Barkley said.

“Well Chief, it seems that the Lupin family have definitely had success in the thieving business for all these years” said Carmelita.

“You can say that” replied Barkley. “Their strategies and wits even rival that of Sly Cooper”

Carmelita raised her eyebrows in surprise when she heard that last statement from her boss.

“Rival that of Sly? How good is this Lupin guy?” she thought to herself.

~Safe house~

The gang just sat there at the table, after hearing what Bentley found on Lupin. It was clear to them that he was definitely a thief of high class skill and intelligence.

“I hate to say it, but this Lupin the Third might just be just as good a thief than us” Bentley spoke up. When he said that, Sly shot a glance at him, almost taking offence at what his turtle friend had said.

“Hey, just because he’s been at it much longer than us, doesn’t mean he is just as good a thief” said Sly.

“I don’t know Sly” said Bentley. “From his record, he definitely knows his stuff”.

“Well if he is that good of a thief, then why don’t we see for ourselves?” Sly suggested.

After hearing this, Bentley and Murray just stared at their friend in disbelief. Was Sly seriously thinking of challenging Lupin the Third?

“Sly, you don’t mean you want to take on Lupin, do you? Bentley asked.

“Why not?” Sly said with a smirk on his face. “I only got a brief chance to see him in action, I think it’s about time we showed Lupin the Third what the Cooper gang can do!”

~Interpol HQ~

“So Ms. Fox, you understand what you need to do?” Barkley asked the vixen.

“You want me to catch Lupin the Third and bring him to justice?” asked Carmelita.

“That is what I was thinking Ms. Fox” replied Barkley.

“Well Chief” Carmelita spoke up. “I’ve had experience with thieves like Sly Cooper, but I’m not sure how I’ll deal with Lupin, not to mention that Cooper might show up again, meaning that Interpol will have to deal with two thieves”.

“I’m glad that you mention that Ms. Fox” replied Barkley. “That is why you’ll be accompanied by a fellow Interpol inspector from Japan who has been chasing down Lupin for years, so you’ll have someone to help you”.

Carmelita raised her eyebrow when she heard her boss told her. She was going to be accompanied by another inspector from Interpol to catch both Sly and Lupin? The vixen then thought that this could be a good thing. Having someone around who has had experience with Lupin and with her experience with Sly Cooper, this could give them both the opportunity to catch the two thieves.

“Alright, so when will this inspector be here?” Carmelita asked.

“Well he should be here by tomorrow” replied Barkley before they both heard a knock outside the badger’s office.

“Come in” Barkely called out. Then a cat officer opened the door before saying.

“Excuse me Chief, but that inspector you called is here” said the officer. Both the badger and the vixen looked in surprise after hearing this.

“He’s here already?” Barkley asked. “Well, he doesn’t kid around I guess, okay let him in”.

The officer then left the office to fetch the inspector. Barkley and Carmelita waited until the door opened again. In came a bloodhound wearing a khaki coloured trench coat over his dark brown suit and an inspector’s fedora on his head. His fur colour was light brown and he had black sideburns.

“Chief Barkley?” the bloodhound asked.

“That’s me” Barkley replied “And you must be the inspector who’s been chasing down Lupin the Third for all these years?”

“Yes sir” replied the bloodhound. Barkley then noticed Carmelita looking on.

“Oh, Inspector” Barkley said to the bloodhound. “Allow me to introduce you to Inspector Carmelita Fox, who will be accompanying you”.

The bloodhound turned his head to the vixen before Carmelita gave out her hand to shake his own.

“It is good to meet you, Inspector…?”

“Zenigata.” The bloodhound replied. “Inspector Koichi Zenigata ma’am” the bloodhound greeted before shaking the vixen’s hand.

Story (c) me
Loading...
It was a dark, yet beautiful night in the city of Paris. Lights from buildings shone throughout the quite streets and the Eiffel Tower towered over all in the city. However, on this night, a shadowy figure ran from rooftop to rooftop with ease before making a massive leap for another building ahead. The moon shone down on the figure to reveal that the figure was wearing a blue elbow-sleeved shirt, a blue cap, a black mask, blue boots and held a hook-shaped cane. He also had a bushy tail with rings on it and appeared to have a grey fur colour. The figure turned out to be none other than the infamous raccoon thief himself, Sly Cooper. Sly landed on the rooftop before walking to the other side and looking down to see a museum which was closed for the night. He then crouched down and got out a pair of binoculars from his red backpack to observe the museum. Whilst he did that, he heard a male voice coming from the binoculars.

“Sly… Can you read me?” asked the voice.

“Yes Bentley, read you loud and clear” said Sly.

Not too far away, hiding in an alleyway near the museum, there was a light blue van with fire-like markings near the front sides and had a raccoon symbol on the front and sides of the van, the symbol of the Cooper Gang. Inside the van, a turtle with a headset on, sitting in a wheelchair in front of several computer monitors at the back of the van, showing several areas of the museum like the car park and the locations of the security guards. In the driver’s seat, a pink hippo was waiting patiently whilst the turtle worked at the monitors.

“Okay Sly, from what I see, it seems that it is unlikely you’d be able to get into the museum by foot, so you’ll need to find another way in” said the turtle.

“No kidding Bentley, they’ve really cracked up security tonight” said Sly whilst looking through the binoculars at several security guards positioned at different parts of the museum.

“It’s a bit strange don’t you think?” said Bentley.

“How so?” asked Sly.

“Well, the museum’s security seems to be much tighter recently” Bentley replied. “Yesterday, the security was like when we usually rob from museums, but tonight it appears that there are more guards patrolling than usual. Do you think that they suspect that we’re planning on stealing that ruby?”

“Well, it wouldn’t surprise me” said Sly. “We are world famous criminals after all, so of course they would expect someone like us to try and steal a ruby that’s over a hundred years old. I wonder if Carmelita is there as well…”

Sly stopped for a moment, a tint of sadness spread on his face as he thought back to when he last saw the vixen known as Inspector Carmelita Fox. It had been months since he last saw her, but it wasn’t a very pleasant moment.

“Sly, you still there?” asked Bentley, bringing Sly back to reality.

“Huh? Oh sorry Bentley” said Sly.

“You alright Sly?” asked Bentley, with a concerned tone in his voice.

“Yeah, I’m fine” replied Sly. “So how do you think I can get in Bentley?”

“Well, you could climb across those wires which will get you to the museum without being seen by the guards, as long as you don’t get shocked that is” said Bentley.

“Hey, it’s me remember?” replied Sly, with a cocky smirk on his face.

“Yeah, I know” said Bentley. “Once you get near, I’ll hack the museum’s security system, that means you’ll be able to get”.

“Alright, let’s get this show on the road” said Sly before jumping on a nearby electrical wire and tightrope walking towards the museum.

In the Cooper Van, Bentley began to get ready to hack the security system. Then, the hippo in the driver’s seat turned around to the turtle.

“You think he still misses her?” asked the hippo.

Bentley stopped typing for a moment.

“It wouldn’t surprise me Murray” replied the turtle. “He hasn’t seen her in god knows how many months and who knows if she ever wants to see him again”.

“It’s a shame really” said Murray. “They were a great couple”.

“Let’s just get back to the job Murray” said Bentley, getting back to typing.

When Sly finally got to the museum, he waited until Bentley finished hacking the security system allowing him to enter the building.

“Okay Sly, I’ve managed to hack their system, you can get in now” said Bentley over the headset.

“Good job Bentley” Sly replied.

The raccoon opened the previously locked window with ease, without making a sound. Once inside, Sly slowly made his way down the hallway, passing many artefacts on the way. He then turned a corner and saw a sign next to an entrance saying.

‘Dei Pulchritudinis’

“I’m nearly there Bentley, soon the ruby will be ours” said Sly through his ear speaker.

“That’s good news Sly, quickly get it before any security guards show up” replied Bentley.

“What does Dei Pul…. Pul….” Murray asked, struggling with the pronunciation.

“Dei Pulchritudinis” Sly cut in. “It means God’s Beauty in Latin”

“Since when did you learn Latin?” asked Bentley.

“Oh, I’ve always made sure to be prepared” replied Sly.

The thief then entered the entrance to the expedition, passing information boards about the ‘Dei Pulchritudinis’. Sly then entered a huge room with a glass display in the middle. He knew that this was where the ruby was and the raccoon slowly made his way towards the display. When he finally got closer, Sly looked to see the hundred year old ruby he and his gang were going to steal from the museum. However, when he looked at the display, expecting to see the ruby, Sly was shocked to discover something very peculiar.

“Uh, Bentley?”

“Yes Sly?”

“You did say that this was where the ruby was right?” asked Sly.

“Yes” Bentley replied. “Why do you ask?”

“Well, I’m at the display and there’s no ruby!” Sly exclaimed. The raccoon was right; the ruby was nowhere to be seen. All there was, was an empty glass display.

“What!” cried Murray.

“B-But that’s impossible!” exclaimed Bentley. “I made sure… there’s no way… it…it should be there!”

“Well it isn’t Bentley!” Sly stated. “But now we need to know what happened to it”

“Well either the museum moved it, or someone got here before you Sly” said Bentley.

Sly was stunned. Someone else had managed to get into the museum and steal the ‘Dei Pulchritudinis’ before he did?

“Well if someone has stolen it before I got here, then why hasn’t the security been alerted yet?” asked Sly.

“That’s what I don’t understand either Sly” Bentley replied. “The security hasn’t been hacked before I touched it and the guards haven’t been alerted yet”

“Then whoever got here managed to bypass the security and steal the ruby before I even got here” said Sly. He was now feeling frustrated, he couldn’t believe that someone had managed to steal the ruby before he did. How could this have happened?

Then, Sly heard something behind him and quickly turned around to see what it was. What he saw was an old looking wolf with a grey moustache. He was wearing what seemed to be a janitor’s suit and a cap. He just looked straight at Sly. The raccoon just froze as the wolf just stared him down.

“Hey there young man, I’m sorry but the museum is closed at this hour” the old wolf just said. Sly just looked at the wolf and thought to himself.

“Is this guy senile?” The old wolf didn’t seem to notice that the ruby was missing.

“If you want I can show you the way out” the wolf kindly offered.

“Uh, yeah sure” Sly replied. “You see I kinda fell asleep here and now I’m locked in here”

Sly didn’t like the thought of lying to an elder, but he didn’t want the old canine alerting the security guards. The old wolf just chuckled.

“It’s alright sonny, it happens to me sometimes as well” said the wolf.

Just before the wolf turned around, Sly quickly said.

“Uh, how about you lead me to the roof if you don’t mind?” Sly asked.

The old wolf just turned around and smiled.

“Sure young man”

He then led Sly to the roof of the museum. Whilst following the old wolf, Sly wondered to himself.

“How come this guy is totally okay with leading me up to the roof?”

“Is it a trap?”

But Sly just shrugged it off, thinking that the old wolf was just senile. He didn’t even notice that the ruby was gone. Sly then started to feel sorry for the old geezer. When they got to the rooftop, the old wolf just smiled at Sly.

“Well, here we are” said the wolf.

“Hey thanks sir” said Sly. “Well, now I’ll be off, thanks for your help”

“No problem” said the wolf.

Then suddenly, the door to the roof slammed open and a group of security guards cornered the two, raising their guns.

“FREEZE!” yelled a dog security guard.

“Oh geez” Sly said to himself.

“What’s wrong Sly?” asked Bentley over the headset.

“Looks like security have found me” Sly replied. “Don’t worry, I’ll make it out”

The security guards pointed their guns straight at Sly.

“Wait, is that Sly Cooper?” asked one of the security guards.

“In the flesh boys” Sly replied with a cocky smile on his face.

“Alright Cooper!” growled the dog security guard. “We know you’ve got the ruby, hand it over now!”

Sly just put his hands up before saying.

“Sorry fellas, but someone got it before I did”

“Don’t give us that crap thief!” shouted the dog.

“I’m serious guys, I don’t have it” said Sly, trying to convince the security guards that he didn’t have the ruby.

“I’m warning you Cooper!” the dog growled. “Hand over the damn ruby now!”

“Wait a minute…” then said another security guard, a cat. “We weren’t told that Cooper would try and steal the ruby, we were told about some other guy”

“Other guy?” Sly thought to himself. “Could they be talking about the one who stole the ruby?”

Then, Sly heard chuckling behind him. He turned around and saw the old wolf standing on the edge of the roof. The security guards looked up as well.

“He’s right guys” the wolf said. However, this time the wolf’s voice sounded much younger than before, but also with a little bit playfulness in it.

“He’s not the culprit you’re looking for, that would be me!” Then suddenly, the wolf then ripped his janitor suit off to reveal him wearing a red jacket, white khaki trousers, a yellow tie, a dark blue shirt and brown shoes. He flung his cap and moustache off to reveal he had plastered black hair with sideburns which nearly went down to his chin. His ears poked out of his ears. From his age, the wolf appeared to be in his early or mid-thirties with fur coloured brown and light brown on his muzzle. His body was somewhat skinny and he was taller than Sly by about two inches. His tail swirled back and forth and he had a confident smile on his face. He then pulled something out of his pocket, only to reveal that it was the ‘Dei Pulchritudinis’ in his hand. Sly was dumbfounded, not just because that the old wolf turned out to be someone in disguise, but by that he was the one who stole the ruby before he did.

“Is… is that who I think it is?” asked one of the security guards.

“Sorry boys, can't stay for long!” said the wolf. Just then, the wolf brought out what appeared to be a smoke bomb. He then threw it at the security guards which blew up in front of them. Smoke spread across the roof, the guards were coughing and were struggling to see through the smoke. Sly just looked at the commotion before turning back to see the wolf preparing to jump off the roof of the museum.

“Hold on a second!” shouted Sly. Once he said that, the wolf turned around to face the raccoon. He had a curious look on his face.

“Yep?” the wolf just casually asked. This annoyed Sly slightly.

“Sorry buddy, but I’m the one who’s supposed to be stealing that ruby, not you!”

“Huh. Someone seems jealous” the wolf said once again casually.

“Just who the hell are you?” Sly demanded.

The wolf just smiled back, that same confident smile as before. For some reason, that smile made Sly a bit irritated.

“Guess you’ve never heard of me, eh?”

“No, so who are you?”

The wolf just chuckled again before saying.

“The name’s Lupin. Lupin the Third” the wolf known as Lupin the Third said before jumping off the roof. Sly looked over the edge to see that Lupin was fine and was using a grappling hook from what seemed to be his belt to lower himself down. Sly just looked down in awe.

“So this guy uses gadgets too” he thought to himself.

“Sly, what’s going on!” asked Bentley, the turtle was confused about the commotion that was going on at the museum. Murray on the over hand was ready to drive the van to Sly’s location.

“Hey Bentley, I think I may have found who stole the ruby” said Sly.

“What, really?” replied Bentley.

“Yeah and he’s getting away!” Sly exclaimed.

He then saw Lupin jump down to the street below and run towards a nearby alleyway. Sly immediately jumped down of the rooftop and used his cane to catch a wire. He then stood on the wire and tightrope walked his way towards the alleyway where Lupin went to. Just then, a car sped out of the alleyway before turning to its left and stopping. From what Sly could see, it was a yellow Fiat 500 that looked like it was from the 1970’s. Sly then looked again to see that Lupin was inside the car at the wheel, but he wasn’t alone in the car. Sly then saw that next to Lupin was a rabbit with light brown coloured fur and was wearing a black suit, a white shirt, a black tie and a black broad-brimmed black-banded fedora, with two rabbit ears poking out of it. He also had thick black hair which went down to his collar and seemed unevenly cut, as well as a chin curtain beard which seemed about an inch long and was also uneven like his hair. At the back seat, there was also a cheetah with light yellow fur and was wearing what seemed to be wearing a hakama and had long black hair that went down to his neck. Sly also noticed that he seemed to be carrying a long wooden pole or something like that. For some reason, he felt that it must have been a katana. Then all three of them in the car looked up at Sly and Lupin gave him that same smile as before. Sly just stared back; he still couldn’t believe that this wolf and his gang managed to successfully steal the ‘Dei Pulchritudinis’ before he even got to the museum as well as trick Sly himself into think he was nothing more than a senile old janitor. Sly had to admit, this Lupin guy was great at disguising himself and he even tricked the raccoon himself. Then Lupin put his hand up to wave at Sly before speeding off into the night, with the ruby in his clutches. Sly just starred off at the direction of where the car sped off. He then felt something inside that he’s never felt before when on a heist, he felt defeated, outsmarted and weaker.

“Sly, you still there?” asked Bentley, bringing Sly back to reality.

“I… I’m fine Bentley” Sly replied.

“Well, what’s going on?”

“The guy got away, with the ruby as well”

“Seriously!” cried Bentley. “Well, do you have any idea about who he is?”

Sly then thought back to when the wolf told him his name before making his escape.

“Well, he did say that his name was… Lupin… Lupin the Third”

At that moment, Sly thought to himself, he didn’t know why, but he thought that this wouldn’t be the last time he’d see the wolf who called himself Lupin the Third.

Story (c) me
Loading...
Hello everyone, I don't usually do this, well in fact I don't do this at all, but in this journal, I will be announcing my new fanfiction that I'll working on. It's been a long time since I last did a fanfiction which was for a Deviantart user who I admired. But this new fanfiction I will be doing will be a crossover between two franchises that I don't see very often. And this story will be titled....

Lupin the Third vs. Sly Cooper

I will now go into some detail about this story I'm doing an why I'm doing a crossover with these two franchises. First off, this is inspired by a picture by the late Rustytoons, which you can see here. This will be sort of a tribute to him as he is sadly no longer with us. 

This will also take place in the Sly Cooper universe because I can't really imagine the Sly characters as humans, so that will also mean that the Lupin charaters will be anthro in this and will be based on their portrayal in Rustytoons' pic, such as Lupin being a wolf, Jigen a rabbit, Goemon a cheetah, Fujiko as a vixen and Zenigata a bloodhound.  

Another thing, I've never played any of the Sly Cooper games but I've looked up on the story of the franchise so I will try my best to portray them properly, hopefully without upsetting the Sly fans, so sorry if i make any mistakes. On that note, this story will take place months after the point in Sly 4 where Carmelita caught Sly stealing again, but it can be seen as taking place before the whole time travel and Le Paradox business, or that those events never happen.

Also, my fanfiction may take longer to complete, compared to my other fanfic. This is due to college being in the way but I'll try and get new chapters out as much as I can. 

Not to mention that I will also include some OC's in my story as well.

I don't know when I will release the first chapter, maybe later this month or much later, but I'm looking forward to sharing both Lupin III and Sly Cooper fans my story and hopefully you will all enjoy it.
