Kaff Tagon has a reputation of "battleplate killer", although he is the first to acknowledge that he is just plain lucky. But now he is being granted a new victory and his legend grows.
I wonder if this will make things even more difficult for the Toughs in the future. Either their customers will expect miracles and/or their enemies will start amassing huge amounts of firepower to deal with them.

Massive firepower like the UNS Shoemaker-Levy, which I doubt would have been sent if the Tagon's Toughs were not involved. After all mere Tricorn class battleplates are at the mercy of the Toughs.

I certainly agree that Tagon's reputation is going hurt as much as it helps in the future. But at the same time the shoemaker levy did not come for the Toughs. If it had come for the Toughs it would have blasted them out of the sky as soon as it showed up it. Taking them into custody was a byproduct of taking out Chinook who has far more power than Tagon ever did and is legitimately responsible for one of the battleplate kills attributed to him. Besides Tagon Jr. isn't there so their tricorn battleplates are safe. :P

Though I will note that the part of the Tough's under Tagon Sr. is doing poorly right now. While the apparently smaller part under Tagon Jr. is being wildly successful. That's probably going to add to his legend in itself.

Any time they are teaching classes on your tactics and strategy while your still alive and in action, you are too famous for your own good.

Yes.

But I see that less as "so famous they teach classes about you while you're alive' and "inflated his own ego by writing books about his own brilliant strategies".

I always thought that was "Taught a class, and had to compile the syllabus himself because there wasn't a suitable textbook already available."

Also, I can not BELIEVE I got the quote wrong.

It's 'you magnificent bastard I read your BOOK!'

Kaff Tagon is too shy to write a book about his "exploits".
He is even coming to terms of the fact that he sacrificed himself to save his ship and his crew.
Now he not only defeated a superior force with a small ship, but liberated slaves at the same time. Thus Kaff Tagon's legend grows among the stars.

I bet Petey would be writing an epic poem if he had the time.

Petey could compose a hundred stanzas of epic poetry in under the time it took you to type your post.
