*BaldOfEvil
*BenevolentBoss: Seems to have an open door policy with his men. This is fortunate because his CoDragons [[TeethClenchedTeamwork really hate each other]].
*BigBad: Shaping up to be one for the Cloonan/Dillon run, at least for the "On the Road" and "Into the Wild" storylines.
*CorruptCorporateExecutive: Runs a group of PrivateMilitaryContractors who [[TheCartel sell drugs]] on the side.
*EvilOldFolks: Looks a bit like [[Film/ReservoirDogs Joe Cabot]].
*LightIsNotGood: Wears white suits. Not a good guy.
*TheMobBossIsScarier: He's not afraid of the Punisher taking him down, he's afraid of what his clients will do to him if the Punisher keeps screwing up his operations.
*PragmaticVillainy: The EMC trafficking plot was not his idea, and he will pull the plug on it if it starts giving him more trouble than it's worth.
