"I think people will love to hate him because of his charm and his looks. He's able to lure people in and seal business deals without anyone questioning anything. I sometimes get away a lot of trouble because of my innocent look.
The same goes for Mdala and I love his style and the fact that he is way too calculative and doesn't spill blood like any other thug we know. He deals with the psychology of mankind until one gives in."
