While appearing nonchalant he is proven to be a brash and overly aggressive individual who acts rather recklessly whenever threatened or enraged, initially appearing calm before responding threateningly when push comes to shove. While a bit loutish he is a loyal individual; one who always honers an agreement and is fiercely protective of his underlings within the syndicate, becoming rather enraged when most of them were killed by his unforeseen business partner.
