After the tragic murder of his parents, Sly is put into an orphanage, which is where he meets his life long friends and partners in crime. Sly's parents and ancestors were all expert/master thieves, each one putting their knowledge, skills and techniques in a book called the Thievius Raccoonus. Carried and handed down through the ages, the book contained the Cooper clans most sneakiest and complex thieving techniques. The Fiendish Five, who are also the ones responsible for the murder of Sly's parents, found the book and split it into five parts, each member holding pieces of the Cooper clans secrets and techniques. From this point, Sly is set on a path that tests his strength and abilities to see whether he can take the mantle of a master thief like his ancestors before him, and retrieve all pages of the Cooper clans secrets and techniques and claim his birth right as a Cooper.
