Term for a mercenary or soldier for hire. First used to describe the unchecked European soldiers of fortune who roamed the Congo in the 1960s and 70s. The negative connotation of the term still remains, despite the evolving roles of legitimate private military companies.
"I'm a soldier of fortune, i'm a dog of war, and we don't give a damn who the killing is for."
