Creating a character to steal without being detected?

Soul Shriven
Morning from the UK,

Sorry if this has been answered before, is there a way to create a character which can pickpocket NPC and locked boxes etc without being detected?

Thank you

    Level your legerdemain skill-line and learn to observe NPC routines.
    NB enthusiastic:
    1. Woodhippie stamblade - DW hard-hitter / PvE
    2. Know-it-all elf Magblade - Healer / PvE & PvP
    3. Hate-them-all elf Magblade - Destrostaff AoE monster / PvE
    4. Cyrodiil-Refugee stamblade - Stamina Tank / PvE

    Go dominion or go home

    leveling ledgerman - and the gear/race suggested will help a lot, i would like to add that being a nightblade will help, because you have access to a skill that makes you invisible - very usefull when learning your trade ;)

    Magblade with concealed weapon and vampire. Max ledgermain pickpocket and lockpicking skills and reduce sneak cost. All you need then is witchmother food and recovery glyphs. Sneak for days at running speed, cloak at run speed.

    3pc night terror and 5p night mothers embrace and you can practically stand 2m away without being detected with med armor passives.
