The word “muscle” is fairly self-explanatory when it comes to describing jobs. You do the heavy-lifting, whether it’s hauling cargo or bashing heads. You’re not paid to think, and generally not paid to do much else except shoot and fight. You’re no soldier, maybe not even a mercenary, but you know how to fight; at least well enough to make some credits off your services. As such, you know a life like that may end poorly, so you plan on making the most of it. Credits are generally your language even if you’re not particularly greedy, wealth is just a good way to avoid dying badly. Or it might just have painted a target on that guy’s back over there….
“Hell, I’ll kill a man in a fair fight…or if I think he’s gonna start a fair fight, or if he bothers me, or if there’s a woman, or if I’m gettin’ paid…mostly only when I’m gettin’ paid.”
-Jayne Cobb, the Muscle on Serenity
