The man was notoriously nickname Cutter due to his obsession with cutting people. At one point, he slit his cousin's own throat.
After his son revealed he was dating Millie Foss, the daughter of his rivals, Cutter was left distraught. Kara talked him into accepting his son's love, which he ultimately does by simultaneously singing with his rivals, who also accepted their daughter's love. However, he ordered his assistant to gather their men for war shortly after.
Cutter was confronted outside his club and a firefight ensued, leaving no survivors.
