Sticky fingers was first practiced by an unknown hero 378 years ago in Elmyra's Glue Shop located in present day Tradeburg. The unknown hero accidently lifted his hand and found that Elmyra gave him a 7 coin discount on the glue he was about to purchase. Realizing he had discovered a newfound skill, he honed it through four decades of meditation. He then passed knowledge of sticky fingers to his son who passed it onto his son and so on.
Sticky fingers remained solely within the unknown hero's family for three hundred years until one descendant was tricked into revealing the skill after witnessing a flash mob. Since then, the skill has spread throughout the land.
