It is never made clear of what gender the twins are: in one scene, "Gretel" (formerly "Hänsel" before swapping) shows 'her' genitalia to Rock in what she presumably came to believe was a show of gratitude, causing him to flee in disgust. One of the running gags of her story arc is her clumsiness and poor luck, which usually result in her being subject to a pantyshot. She can fire the Desert Eagle one-handed and with deadly accuracy, seemingly unaffected by the gun's infamous weight and heavy recoil. However, she tells Eda in episode 17 that she is an Atheist, but this was due to a mistranslation in the English dubbed anime.

Unknown to most people, "Hänsel" and "Gretel" are actually two personalities alternately adopted by the two children, both of whom suffer from Dissociative Identity Disorder, meaning they swap being "Hänsel" and "Gretel" with each other from time to time (it is likely that these were their screen names in the films). In the second season, he met Greenback Jane, and, after impressing her with his computer abilities, began an online relationship with her. Revy is one of the deadliest fighters in the series, whose skill with firearms and ability to dodge bullets is almost superhuman and unparalleled. She is currently helping Garcia search for Roberta. He can be easily identified by the large scar running from the right side of his forehead to his left cheek. This proved to be his undoing however, since Rock realized this and came up with a strategy to exploit Captain's attitude. She states that she comes from the poorest slums of Caracas, where she lived with her ten siblings until she was employed by the Lovelace Family. Revy says his group is almost as vicious as Hotel Moscow and he appears to have an alliance with the Albanian Mafia.

It is revealed he is a highly-esteemed operator by his fellow colleagues especially Gray Fox's second in command for his decency, integrity and honorable conduct. Revy is also very protective of Rock. They were abandoned in a state-run orphanage due to their parents' inability to afford keeping them. Along with the Italian Mafia, they are the most brash of the criminal organizations, much to the disgust of Balalaika and Chang. Black Lagoon (ブラック・ラグーン Burakku Ragūn) is a manga series written and illustrated by Rei Hiroe's and published in Shogakukan's Monthly Sunday Gene-X since 2002. When she forgets her Ultravoice, she requests someone to translate for her and draws descriptions on a window or on a person's back to "speak". She and Roberta then tend to a wounded Garcia. Flashbacks throughout the series reveal that she may have honed her skills with firearms by shooting at cans, and that her first murder may have involved shooting her abusive father, using a pillow as a silencer. Mr. Chang is based on characters commonly played by Chow Yun-fat in films by John Woo,[citation needed] such as John Lee in Replacement Killers and especially Mark Gor in A Better Tomorrow, as both Chang and Gor are members of the Hong Kong Triads, wield dual pistols and don similar attire. Revy is a Chinese-American woman of approximately moderate height in her mid to late twenties. I couldn't find any proof of this- is this even true?

He says he prefers to kill with an ordinary object or with nothing at all. As a result of his action, he has made an enemy of the formidable Roberta, which their confrontation involves the entire city of Roanapur, including the Triad, Hotel Moscow, and the Church of Violence. His weapon of choice is one or more Mauser C96(s) with an extended magazine, although it's unknown whether this is an actual Mauser or a foreign version of the gun. Eda (エダ?) His body is heavily muscled, and he is always seen wearing a pair of sunglasses, typically dressed in camouflage pants and wearing a flak jacket. Just them barely appearing often results in needless fighting and bloodshed. So far, Ginji is the only one whom Revy admits had the perfect chance to kill her.

Maki is a female high school junior and goes to the same high school as her friend, Yukio Washimine. He often feels harassed by Lagoon Company, especially Revy, for messing up his bar whenever they get into a fight with another party and reminds Revy to pay for the damage she has caused, which she always avoids doing.

She agrees to take up Revy's offer to help Garcia fight off the Colombian Cartel who is trying to kill Roberta. She was brought up by her grandfather, the military head of the USSR. She is something of a comic relief when compared with Roberta (whom she calls "head housemaid" with the utmost respect), as she is little, carries her grenade launcher concealed in her outfit, and is often prominent in humorous situations; such as her height, being picked up like a bratty little kid, to being made fun of her breast size. However, when Hotel Moscow's methods went too far, Tsugio Bando, the current head of the Washimine group, tried to stop them and was killed by Balalaika, who decided she would instead destroy both groups and take over their operations.

Compared to Takenaka, he is the exact opposite in personality, while Takenaka is calm, reasonable and clever; Ibraha is paranoid, unreasonable and always want to fight without thinking. His character and appearance is likely based on Kakihara from Ichi the killer, as both of them are longing for a strong opponent equal to them and are sadistically violent. [6], Voiced by: Masaki Terasoma (Japanese); Brian Dobson (English). It is likely that she is attracted to Rock, based on her reactions to Eda's teasing, which appear to be jealousy.

Her consequent horror finally snaps her out of her insanity. It is implied that it is he who taught her this style of combat, though that is yet to be clarified. She and her men share a strong fellowship and there is a great deal of mutual loyalty between them.
