This man attracted attention due to his scar. This scar looked strange on his broad and good-natured face. This was clearly the sign of a stab of knife or saber. The man was tall and looked powerful. Despite such a frightening appearance, he led a quite life. The man often visited different pubs and offered lottery tickets for sale. They were rarely bought, but he continued his business. In such bars he was regularly offered a drink. The man never refused. He was often in a drunken state. It seems he was never completely sober. They said he was a refugee from Nicaragua. He was clearly a villain and a robber. Still the man did not bother anyone and did not break the law. Some people believed that he was a general who led the rebellion, but failed.
