The jokes about the relation between his name (which means "quarrel") and his profession are not exactly new. Still: Yes, if needed, he will fight!

Even his partners are continually amazed by his ability to quickly familiarise himself with complicated materials.
In the end, everything is very easy, but if we believe this from the beginning, then we would remain a fool.
