Bogdan hates everyone. He wants things his way, and if anyone tries to stop him he makes them regret it.
Bogdan makes steel. He "taps the heat," leaning over liquid metal that's thousands of degrees, as it's being poured. If anyone were to fall into it, they'd be vaporized without even the time for a scream. Human tissue would be disolved into the metal on contact.
A conflict over a woman gets Bogdan upset with his boss. He deals with it the only way he knows how. Fate has its way of working things out, though.
Sure, I make steel. Sure, I kill people. I'm a man.
