Drake Maijstral is the fictional protagonist of a series of science fiction novels by Walter Jon Williams. He appears in The Crown Jewels (1987), House of Shards (1988), and Rock of Ages (1995) (collected as Ten Points for Style by the Science Fiction Book Club).
A minor aristocrat in a galactic empire that has long since conquered and assimilated humanity, Maijstral is an Allowed Burglar: centuries prior to the novels' setting, the alien emperor was a kleptomaniac, and—since nothing the Emperor did could be considered "wrong" -- "Allowed Burglary" was invented as an extreme sport.
