Questions for Skua (Red Hood)!

This is the closest picture I could find of
someone who somewhat looks like him.
He is a bit older though,

Here's another character that I need to know more about. Though he's only in the first book he has "cameo" roles in the other two, so I'd like to learn more about him. His name is Skua!

Though Skua looks in his thirties, he is closer to sixty because of his Isamaour longevity and has been a gun for hire for more than half of his life. He has deadly aim with his rifle and swift precision with his ulu knives with dozens of kills to his name and he rides upon a kisafonn, a giant snow leopard, who's as lethal as he is. He has worked for crime lords and even common folk as long as they can pay, but currently, his services are contracted to Lord Nzelt.

Skua isn't his true name, but an alias he's taken to protect his identity and his small family's. The creatures called skuas are fierce arctic birds of prey who often hunt for animals much larger than them for food, thus he took on the title of that strong beast. Skua sends a sum of money to support his hjakona (wife in all but being bonded by matrimony) and twins who live in a small home hidden in the Isriki tundra and visits them a few times a year, but the money is just too good for him to give up his dangerous profession. 

Leave your questions in the comments or in the form if you'd wish to remain anonymous or if you're having trouble with the comments. Skua will answer them next Friday! Thank you!
