Though unskilled should the battle finally arise he would remain their for his lumps. Often standing to a challenge, when he didn't know how to hold his hands up. All he knew was he was big. This was not a bully but rather the bullied standing up hoping they would go away and realizing one must have something in his hand to call a bluff. Aloysius could count many corners his nose was bloodied and wondered with their multitude if he was not to blame. Though he was weak at times and all predators developed a smell for the wire in the blood.
