Pinchers are the future equivilent of cat burglers. These individuals are skilled in many areas of subterfuge, hacking, breaking and entering, and other, similar activities. Pinchers are master thieves, able to break through the toughest of physical security systems and most computer security as well. While their computer skills do not extend into the same realms as Digerati they are still quite adept. While a good Digerati can break through sophisticated security and hop across networks and systems with the greatest of ease, the average Pincher will instead dance through the physical security measures to get inside where the computer security is nowhere near as strong as it is outside.

Where Digerati are the cyber samurai of the modern world, Pinchers are more like the Ronin, breaking down security and reveling in the challenge of the acquisition, all for the piles of money they get paid to do so.
