    That particular bounty killer didn't do it for the money, he did it for personal reasons. This particular bounty killer is similar but he won't cash in on his rewards until in afterlife. While the other one couldn't get any further than avenging his sister, this one is up to bringing her back to life, the ultimate form of revenge.

I have used this username several years.
    Which of course come from the Greek goddess Nike who was a goddess who personified victory, also known as the Winged Goddess of Victory.

    Originally feugodedios which is 'fire of God' in Spanish. A missionary to Mexico David Hogan used the term a lot. Over time just got shortened to fuego which is pronounced 'fwaygo' unlike krys who pronounces it wrong and say 'foogo' or something like that.

    This is close to how I pictured Nikos to begin with :



    That is Nikos Kourkoulis and he is a Greek singer

    Which in case Nikos didn't know is from the spaghetti western 'For a Few Dollars More' with Clint Eastwood. And Colonel used to have his pic as his avatar too, although not this particular one.
