Yeah, as much as I call him Dr Evazan, and I've read the story, I like to just think of him as some minor criminal who picks fights. In fact, I've always thought he was outright lying when he said he had the death sentence on twelve systems. He seems like that kind of guy. I think the real badasses would keep that **** quiet.
In bar where every third person is a bounty hunter, yeah, keeping quiet might be wise.
