Carlisle, a character in the The Heist: Monaco book, is a corrupt money monger. He is first seen in Chapter 1.


Carlisle has short dark brown hair, gray eyes, and a light to fair complexion. He keeps his face clean shaven. He wears a white dress shirt and black tie under a dark suit.


He is described by Rye as a corrupt pharmatech billionaire and weapons-grade douchebag. It is mentioned that he overcharges sick people in need of medicine. He has zero respect for his security guards given that he often threatens to fire them or physically harm them. Miranda calls him a cruel, selfish pig. Ansel says that Carlisle will do whatever it takes to get what he wants and is ruthless.

Princess Marguerite

"You think love matters when you have this much power?"
—Barrett to Your Character

Marguerite is his fiancee. Their marriage would be one of convenience as neither of them loves the other. She agreed to marry him for her family because they were going through financial difficulties; he agreed to marry her for the power and prestige as well as having a new base of operations for his businesses. If you unlock Miranda's bad ending, she says she doesn't miss him. 

Your Character

Barrett was a mark that you tried to steal from 3 years ago. While you were successful in the heist, a betrayal from Ansel Crane allowed Carlisle to keep all of his stolen property. In Chapter 15, you have the option of stealing his personal property on top of the Royal Jewels; if you do, when he catches you, Rye, your Muscle, and your Grifter in the hall, he asks you why. If you tell him that he's a dick and that his empire is built on others suffering, he tells you to spare him your morals.

Ansel Crane

Ansel Crane is Barrett's security expert.
