|Nickname:||Son of Sparda, Tony Redgrave, Legendary Devil Hunter|
According to him this is because people who hire him usually leave him a bill rather than pay him (due to destruction he causes during the job such as destroying a bridge). His lack of money is also attributed to Lady and Trish, who leave him to pay for their clothes; as well as Lady taking his pay and cutting it from the debt he owes her.
Also, when he makes a fair bit of money it's usually squandered, due to him having to pay a bet he lost previously, as well as to him being too lazy to work more than once a week. Nevertheless, when he does accept a job he diligently finishes it to the point of gaining a reputation of infallibility; he is strong enough to take out a small army of lesser Devils with only his hands.
Known for his cocky banter when on a job, which covers for his sometimes grumpy and miserable demeanor, he has in fact a fondness for strawberry sundaes and pizza (without olives) which are his only diet (according to him, his record for eating a large pizza is 5 minutes), along with an array of alcoholic beverages from which he leaves the bottles scattered about his office.
A source of comic relief in the series is his indebtedness and apparent lack of gambling skill due to his bad luck.
His weapons of choice are a pair of over-sized custom 45s, one black (named Ebony) and one silvery (named Ivory), the occasional sawed-off shotgun and his faithful sword, Rebellion (given to him by his father), which he carries in public in a guitar case.
