While staying in Roanapur, where the Lagoon Company is situated, Dutch is accosted by Chin, a gangster who warns Dutch of continuing to work for Balalaika. Dutch ignores his warnings and receives a job from an anonymous employer. As the group leaves on the Black Lagoon, Chin contacts Luak, the head of a pirate gang, to kill the Lagoon Company, and Luak attacks the Black Lagoon with a squadron of boats. Dutch tricks two of the boats into destroying each other via friendly fire, and Revy destroys the rest with a M79 grenade launcher and PM-63 RAK while leaping from boat to boat. Subsequently, the job is revealed to be a hoax set up by Chin, who is killed by Balalaika.
