Recoil unnerves people because he likes to sneak up on people all the time. Whether he does it consciously or just out of habit. He makes no apologies about it because as a reconnaissance specialist, that is his job. It's just that it makes people wonder why he has to do it all the time. Just as well, it has made him one of the most qualified personnel to infiltrate enemy territory and gather intelligence. Being a former marathon runner and prize body builder just made him even a lot better.
