Badass. The term derives from the surname "Aakhus", from the family including famous badasses, including Badass "Justin" Aakhus, whose very first name is Badass. An aakhus can jump-start cars while wearing sharp sunglasses and sporting a snow-flecked beard.
Jake is such an aakhus, I once saw him kick that brent clear across the room and through the window just for touching his cereal bowl.
