The Scotsman

Scotsman-2015PC’s former Scotsman Martin Pruitt explains,

The Blue Hose is more than just a Scottish warrior. He is a Scotsman.

This means that he is a Scottish Warrior Poet, courtly enough to dine with nobles, charming enough to turn the head of any lady, and fierce enough to turn the tail of any Englishman.
