* PragmaticVillainy: He prefers to avoid civilian casualties during heists, but it's more due to the fact that fewer casualties means less heat than it is to do with any sense of compassion on his part. He doesn't really care if people get killed, he just would rather not deal with the fallout said deaths tend to result in.
