Mandaly, is there an English word for the H. Creole word 'cheran'? mesi.

I am not sure what the English word would be.

cheran (adj.) - someone with whom you can't haggle over the price of an item.  A person who is "cheran" sells his item/service at a high price and is unwavering and persistent at keeping that price.

an example

Machin nan pa menm mache enpi w'ap mande wi mil dola pou li.  Ou twò cheran monchè. - The car doesn’t even run and you're asking eight thousand dollars for it.   You are too “cheran”.
