He can be summed up to three words: contrived edgy rethoric.
It was painful to watch every scene he was in. But then again, maybe it's because I'm not a misanthropic teen with war fantasies.

That's what made this so good. They never exchange a single word, and they've never seen each other face to face until that exact moment. Both are highly trained killers, and both have been waiting to kill the other since the war started.

No naming techniques, no talking about how their ideal is right and they shouldn't fight, etc. It's just walk in, see each other, fight to the death. They waste no time on childish crap, they're both there to kill the other. Nothing else.
