Animated Character Database

Edith Blackwater (イディス・ブラックウォーター Idisu Burakkuwōtā), more commonly known as Eda (エダ), is a woman posing as a nun in the Rip-Off Church with ties to the criminal world since the convent is mainly a smuggling organization. She is also the titular character of the official Black Lagoon spinoff series Black Lagoon: Eda Initial Stage.


Eda is a young, Caucasian-American woman who is 165.6 centimeters (or 5'5") in height with waist-length blond hair, pale skin, and blue eyes. She is always seen with angular pink sunglasses even with her nun's habit, and she is often seen smoking and sometimes chewing gum. When she is not in her nun's habit, she wears a miniskirt and a tight tank top that shows off her well-endowed figure. On her upper right arm is a tattoo of a cross moline crucifix with two human skulls facing away from the cross. The tattoo slightly varies in each media appearance; for example, the crucifix may have a halo or heraldic ribbon above, and in some chapters there are different objects surrounding the crucifix, such as thorns or an upside down dagger.

However, when she performs work for the Central Intelligence Agency, her hair is tied up in a bun and only a few of her bangs are on her face, additionally wearing a blue formal, businesswoman suit with glasses and a light shade of pink lipstick as well as gold-hanging earrings. In her spinoff series, she wears aviator sunglasses instead of her angular sunglasses. Eda's preferred firearm is a Glock 17L, which she wields proficiently.


Eda is well-trained in intelligence and firearms thanks to her CIA training. Nonetheless, Eda has a quick temper and is impatient when a situation does not go as she planned. As a woman of God, she frequently cites Bible verses throughout the series. Eda also frequently teases Revy about her relationship with Rock, occasionally asking her if she finally engaged in sexual intercourse with him and also flirting with Rock whenever she sees him. She is a fervent American nationalist highly loyal to the U.S. CIA in particular, once taunting Mister Chang by telling him that the U.S.A. owns the whole world (although she does not like the U.S. NSA). Like Revy and many of Roanapur's denizens, Eda has also expressed racial insensitivity, including referring to Hispanic people as "cholos" and calling the Asian woman Le Majeur "slant eyes."


Eda has claimed that she was originally born in Alabama, but later said that her true home is Langley, Virginia. It must be noted that Langley, Virginia, is a metonym for the CIA, as the organization's headquarters is located there. Later on, it is revealed that Eda is indeed a CIA operative and is being hosted by the Rip-Off Church in return for monetary payments. According to her spinoff series, before joining the CIA, Eda was a Harvard University graduate. She is stationed in Roanapur as part of her division's assignment to keep international criminal activity in Southeast Asia in check.

Black Lagoon history[]

In Roanapur, Eda collaborates with Sister Yolanda, the Rip-Off Church's leader, for ordering and shipping weapons and drugs. Yolanda knows of Eda's CIA connections and takes on the CIA as a frequent client, and the CIA in turn receives information from the Church's network of informants. Besides Yolanda, Eda also takes orders from agent Ravencroft, her superior in the CIA.

Calm down, two men[]

Eda is first introduced in the "Calm down, two men" arc when Rock and Revy try to buy weapons from the Rip-Off Church, with Eda directing the two to the drawing room to talk with Sister Yolanda. When Revy argued that she needed a certain weapon, Yolanda would not budge from her initial offer unless Lagoon Company offered a discount given that a different client had a priority in using the weapon. Angered, Revy pulled out her pistol, with Eda pulling out her Glock pistol in turn, resulting in a standoff. Before any blood could be spilled, Rock finished the negotiations with Yolanda by implying that he could tell Hotel Moscow about the Church's unauthorized drug routes due to Hotel Moscow looking for the people who shipped the drugs in her territory. When Yolanda agreed to Rock's terms, she told Eda to add the weapon to the inventory, so Eda sheathed her pistol and told Revy to leave since mass was going to begin. Before leaving with Rock, Revy showed her middle finger to Eda and insulted Yolanda.

Bloodsport Fairy tale[]

When Hotel Moscow members were being murdered around town, Eda, dressed in her casual outfit instead of her nun's habit, heard the news and went to the Yellow Flag to tell Rock and Revy the news about the bounty that Balalaika put out, but Bao told her that everyone in town already knew, disappointing her. Eda also tried to flirt with Rock to Revy's annoyance. Additionally, Eda commented that she had some extra information on the most recent murders of Private First Class Sakharov and Corporal Menshov, adding that Balalaika planned on going to war.

Once the murderers, then exposed as two Romanian children, began killing Verrocchio and his men, Eda used a payphone to call Revy and urged the latter that they should not just sit around and let the police hunt down the murderers, adding that Joey rented a room in Palcana Square where the murderers were supposed to show up. Already having prepared her pistols, Revy retorted at Eda not to yell at her since she was on the way. In that building, Eda found Revy there among the giddy and impatient bounty hunters. Signaling Revy to come to her, Eda advised her that they should leave since Hotel Moscow would have escorted everyone out of the area if the twins were to truly appear there. When Revy agreed that the Russians would not rely on speculation to hunt the twins, Eda commended Revy's deduction but playfully insulted her for lacking high school education. Although ready to head out, the annoyed Revy grumbled that she did not remember Eda having an education either.

In an alleyway, Eda and Revy confronted the twins trying to escape. Not fazed, Gretel went up to Eda and asked her what the bounty on their heads were, scaring Eda. She continued to point her gun at the child after saying that the bounty was $80,000, but Gretel offered $150,000, making Eda ask Revy what choice they would make. Revy excitedly stated that they would take both the $150,000 and their lives to get the bounty, resulting in a shootout.

In short time, the shootout was interrupted by the Vysotniki, with Daniil using a heavy machine gun to force Eda to clear the line of fire, preventing her from getting the bounty on the twins. After the gunfire ceased and the Vysotniki left to hunt the twins, Eda insulted Revy for her failure, but the two realized that arguing would not solve their problems. When Eda asked Revy to give her a ride home, Revy rejected her request, leaving Eda behind. Although angry, Eda quickly became frightened when Gretel suddenly appeared and pointed her machine gun at Eda, searched the nun's body for weapons. Frozen in shock, Eda asked the child why she continued to kill knowing that Balalaika would defeat her. In response, Gretel merely laughed heartily and gleefully answered that she and her brother killed people simply because they wanted to. The child told Eda that she wanted her to arrange plans for her escape, so Eda contacted the Lagoon Company. At the harbor, Gretel promised that Eda would go free if Lagoon Company took the job and also accepted her pay, and so they did, leaving Eda alive after the ordeal.

Greenback Jane[]

Looking for help to escape capture by the Nuevo Laredo Cartel, Janet Bhai ran to the Rip-Off Church and banged on the chapel's door. Inside, Revy and Eda were relaxing by drinking and cooling off when they heard the knocking, so Eda told Jane that the church was closed and she should come back another time. When Jane continued knocking, Revy and Eda played rock-paper-scissors to decide who would answer the door. Losing, Eda pushed the door open and demanded that Jane leave, but Elvis and his men showed up. Elvis shot at the door and told the nun that he only needed the girl and he would leave, but Eda and Revy got angered and started shooting back. In the commotion, Lobos stepped away from his car and told Revy that there was a misunderstanding, but that only encouraged both women to continue shooting.

Seconds later, Rico joined the women with his machine gun, introducing himself to Revy. Continuing to shoot, Eda furiously reminded Rico to call her "sister" and not "sis." In the chapel, Yolanda saw Eda's old fashioned glass and alcohol, berating her for drinking in the chapel. Mortified, Eda told her she could explain, but Yolanda tossed the glass aside and said they would talk later, pulling out her golden Desert Eagle to aid in shooting the Nuevo Laredo henchmen. As Elvis and his men fled, Eda glared at Jane as the annoyed Yolanda remarked that someone needed to pay for the chapel door's repairs, telling Jane that she had some explaining to do. Jane entered the chapel and explained herself while the three church members and Revy listened.

Jane's knowledge on reproducing counterfeit U.S. currency started to tire out Eda and Revy, causing Eda and Yolanda to ask what Jane's point was in her story. Subsequently, Jane showed them two counterfeit bills and proved that Revy could not spot a counterfeit like she could, but Yolanda still asked what she wanted. Finishing her story, Jane told them she ran away and arrived at the chapel, making Eda remark that Jane betrayed the Nuevo Laredo Cartel instead of fulfilling her deal. Nonetheless, Yolanda offered Jane help by telling her that she could be given safe passage by the church. When Jane said she would offer $30,000 for her printing plates and escape, Yolanda rejected her offer, disappointing Jane.

The young counterfeiter told them she would find help elsewhere, but Eda gave her some advice to stay at the Ramsap Inn since she would be easily found at any other hotel. As soon as Jane left the chapel, Yolanda commended Eda for setting up a plan to convince Jane to agree to whatever price they wanted, confusing Revy. Immediately, Eda called Leroy to tip off Jane's location at the inn in exchange for money. The same night inside the Yellow Flag, Eda told Revy that she already had a full rescue plan to coerce Jane into paying them. Asking if Rock had the car ready, Eda left the bar as the impatient Revy followed her. Rock then drove the two women to an alley near the Ramsap Inn where Jane stayed, and Eda assured them both that she had a plan to rescue Jane.

Eda also tried to flirt with Rock and breathe into his ear, shocking him. Revy threatened to injure Eda, so she ceased and told the two about her plan. When the two heard about Eda's plan to guide Jane out of the inn using signs explicitly marked with the word "escape," Revy and Rock found the plan to be too simple, with Revy comparing Eda to Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin. After Revy told Rock to start the car so that they could leave, Eda pleaded with them to stay, but seconds later they saw Jane running past them to their surprise. Eda told Rock to drive backwards, passing by and teasing Jane that she was out awfully late for a jog. Realizing that she had been tricked, Jane kept offering various prices to Eda, who rejected the prices and reminded the young woman she was being chased by various mercenaries. Desperate to survive, Jane agreed to whatever Eda desired.

Accordingly, Eda let Jane into the car while Quentin the Tiger and other mercenaries saw that she was helping Jane. Quentin tried to tell Eda that there was a $1,000 bounty on Jane, but Eda shot him, stating that such a meager sum of money was chump change compared to her pay to rescue Jane. Rock drove them away from the bounty hunters as Eda and Revy shot at the remaining pursuers. Close to the docks, Eda gave Revy's pay to her in advance, but Rock told her that the plan would not work. Arriving at the Lagoon Company dry dock, Eda found out that the PT boat was not at the docks, ruining her final plan to escort Jane out of Roanapur and disappointing Jane as well. Revy told her that Dutch and Benny were doing a delivery and would be back in some time, so they waited around while Jane locked herself in a closet to continue her work. Seeing alcohol on a nearby shelf, Eda asked for a glass of the bottles, but Revy rejected her request since they were Dutch's, so Rock got some Jim Beam from his own stock and offered it to Eda.

Soon, the rest of Russell's bounty hunters stormed the dock building to capture Jane, but Eda and Revy already prepared for their attack and shot the first several raiders. Being flanked on all sides of the building, Eda used the Lagoon Company's ARWEN launcher to disperse other bounty hunters. Spending a long time fighting off the killers, the situation was made worse by Shenhua's presence as well as Claude "Torch" Weaver burning the building and Sawyer trying to injure Jane and Rock. Remarking that Shenhua was trouble, Revy asked Eda if she could accurately fire a shot at Shenhua, which Eda smirkingly confirmed. When Revy forced Shenhua to run off the building's external duct, Eda fired a shot at the window when Shenhua ran by.

Thinking she had made the shot, Eda walked to the window and Shenhua immediately held the nun in a lethal hold with her weapon. Pretending to leave, Revy managed to distract the Taiwanese assassin, giving Eda the opportunity to shoot Shenhua downward. Consequently, Revy screamed because of the several small knives thrown into her muscles, making her berate Eda for not warning her. Meanwhile, when Sawyer cornered Rock and Jane on the rooftop, she lost her voice machine in the process, refusing to fight further. Eda soon got onto the roof and remarked that Sawyer was a special type of person who she had seen before, insulting her anxiety. To their fortune, Dutch's boat arrived on scene, so the four of them jumped onto the boat after the roof began collapsing, with a few assassins and Russell getting onboard. Jane stayed inside the ship while Revy and Eda fought the remaining assassins. To shake off the assassins, Revy had Eda tie themselves to the ship while Dutch swerved the boat in a 180 degree motion, succeeding to some extent.

With Claude onboard and Russell escaping into the boat's engine room, Revy agreed to fight Claude while Eda stopped Russell from killing Jane. In the engine room, Eda overheard the Floridan cowboy's rant and mocked him. Immediately, the two got into a gunfight, with Eda eventually disarming the cowboy. As Russell contemplated what would happen to his boss Elvis, he thought that he recognized Eda from somewhere, but she denied his recognition. He then stated that he knew that he saw her in Washington D.C. at the restaurant Fontainebleu talking to a U.S. Senator, with Eda nonchalantly confirming that she talked to the man about overthrowing governments. When she told Russell that she was from Langley, Russell immediately yelled in shock that she was CIA, resulting in Eda shooting him in the head, ending the chase. Later, Eda got the money-printing plates from Jane and the Indian woman was escorted out of Roanapur.

El Baile de la muerte / Roberta's Blood Trail[]

When the NSA's Grey Fox team instigated an operation in Southeast Asia without consulting her CIA division, she was tasked with tracking down and stopping Shane Caxton, the same foe who Roberta was hunting. At first, Revy told Eda that the U.S. Army was in the city, surprising her. Knowing that she had to stop them from interfering in the CIA's territory, she advised Revy to guard Rock as he went around town helping Garcia Lovelace and Fabiola Iglesias, giving her time to talk to Yolanda.

In the chapel, Eda elaborated to Yolanda that the NSA was trying to compete with the CIA's influence as they previously did in Venezuela. Yolanda promised Eda that the Rip-Off Church's network would gather information on the NSA members' backgrounds and location, adding that she needed financial compensation from the CIA in return. Eda replied that she would bring up the compensation to her boss, and soon Yolanda provided her the list as well as a transcript and minutes of the Council meeting at The Golden Swingin Night Club between Roanapur's crime lords.

The next day, Mister Chang went to the Rip-Off Church to talk to his CIA contact, with Rico guiding him to the confession booth to talk with them. Unknown to him, Eda was the contact, and she told Chang about the details and history of the Grey Fox team, including their names, the three hotels where they were hiding, and Grey Fox's then-current mission to capture Shue Yan, reminding Chang that the Triad's heroin trade would be crippled if Shue Yan was captured due to his control over opium in the Golden Triangle. When Chang told her that the call was over, Eda stopped him and asked him what his plan of action was. He replied that he was under no obligation to tell her anything, calling Eda a bureaucrat and saying that the Triad was not a lapdog of the CIA. In response, Eda laughed and told him that smack talk did not work when the receiver was stronger, calling Chang street trash and saying that the CIA was one of the many hydra heads of the United States government that could control and topple countries and governments, in contrast to the Triad only being able to control businesses. Upon hearing her comment, Chang angrily hung up the phone and left the chapel.

Later, she also visited Rock on her motorcycle and agreed with his plan to get Caxton out of Roanapur as well as helping Roberta follow Caxton northward to the Golden Triangle; though when Rock suspected that she might not be who she said she was, she warned him to not investigate further for his own safety. At the same time, the Rip-Off Church forged travel documents for Roberta, with Rico informing Eda that he sneaked into Roberta's hideout to drop off the envelope there. Although Rico was curious as to why Eda made such arrangements, Eda sternly advised him to mind his business and ordered him to report to Sister Yolanda. At a Bangkok airport, Eda boarded a flight which Roberta also boarded. As Roberta sat down next to her, Eda joked that Roberta should have showered, causing Roberta to try and hit her, asking Eda if she was an American dog. Annoyed, Eda told Roberta to calm down and told her that she courteously made travel arrangements for Roberta to enter the area where Grey Fox was supposed to be. In response, Roberta glared but calmly thanked Eda, telling the latter that she would give her a painless death after her hunt. Later, Eda was last seen telephoning her division head in Langley regarding Shue Yan's custody being switched from the NSA to the CIA.

The Wired Red Wild Card[]

After Rock needed information to connect the dots of Feng Yifei's findings, he went to the Yellow Flag Bar to meet up with Eda and Rico. As Rock asked Bao another question about the machine, Eda arrived and wrapped her arm around Rock, flirtatiously saying that it had been a while, with Rico accompanying Eda (both dressed in casual clothing). Eda asked Rock if he gave up on Revy after she got arrested, but Rock shot her down by saying that he could not taste his alcohol. Getting a drink from Bao, Eda asked Rock how he would break Revy out, calmly adding that she knew about the Chinese girl that he was sheltering. Rock commended her for her knowledge, telling her that he needed a favor, with Eda asking what he would give in return.

Rock explained that he would give her the Lagoon Company's list of recent clients and shipments in the past 4 months in exchange for breaking Revy free from jail within 24 hours and receiving info about any dealings between Cosa Nostra and the Albanian Mafia in the past 6 months. Eda agreed to his terms, telling Rico to come with her to report to Sister Yolanda first. Rock quickly asked her how he would contact her, but she interrupted to say that she would swing by Jackpot Pigeons, knowing that he was staying there with Feng. The next morning, Eda and Rico (now dressed in clerical clothing) visited Rock and Feng, with the nun saying that she did not like the morning sun. On a table, Rico laid down his documents as Eda explained the Albanian Mafia's history and the Tirana cartel's recent alliance with Ronnie the Jaws. Rico then told Rock and Feng about the identities and history of the four men known as The Quartet, a brother-assassin group of Bren the Black Death's murder business, who were hired to kill Feng.

Rico and Eda apologized to Rock since they could not get any concrete data on the fourth brother, and Eda explained the details concerning the Sicilians' washing machine run by Zamid Dhiyab for the Albanians. Rock asked where the washing machine was, with Eda telling him that it was not her job and any extra information would cost extra, but told Rock as a friend that the mafia likely used the BTCE, a bank that was globally popular with crime syndicates. Rock then proposed that they use the washing machine money to secure Feng's safety under Cosa Nostra. When Feng explained that she could find the washing machine but could not access it offline, Eda and Rico burst into laughter. Rock thought they could just go to another internet café, but Eda and Rico reminded him that their enemies would surveil such places since Feng was spotted at one.

Knowing that the mafias would likely not let him use their electronics, Eda recommended that they try to use the internet at the Roanapur City Police Station, with Feng agreeing that she could securely access the washing machine there. Seeing that they could visit the station to access the internet and free Revy, Rock agreed to the new plan to visit the police station. Soon, Rock and Revy left the police station after the bloody rampage there, and outside the mercenary Montero stood on a rooftop opposite of the police station. Revy knew that Montero was still after Feng, but Rock assured her that he already made arrangements. As Montero prepared his sniper rifle, Eda ascended onto the rooftop as well. There, she used a baseball bat to hit Montero off the roof, making him fall onto a car and killing him, completing her deal with Rock.

New Girl in the Hood[]

Feeling like going out for a drink, Eda donned her casual outfit and headed to the Yellow Flag. Inside, Eda walked to the counter and leaned against Le Majeur, rhetorically asking if she was the sole survivor of Les Cinq Doigts. Complimenting Majeur surviving the Vysotniki, Eda commented that she wish she had Majeur's luck. Glaring at Eda, Majeur told her not to be so friendly with her, to which Eda joked to Revy that her friend was not very polite. Asking Eda if she thought she could treat her like a nobody, Majeur calmly threatened to kill Eda, who snidely told the "slant-eye" Majeur that she could try if she liked. Consequently, both women immediately attempted to draw their pistols until Revy slammed her glass onto the table, telling the two that they could settle their quarrel over drinks. Waving her hand to Bao, Revy ordered him to give them several rounds. As the drinks were poured, the two women were told that whoever passed out first would lose. As several men began betting on Eda and Majeur, Revy served as referee and ordered them to begin, and the two women swung their heads up.

Ballad of the Sinful Wizard[]

In the second official light novel Ballad of the Sinful Wizard, Eda briefly returned to the CIA headquarters in the U.S. to speak with Ravencroft and CIA Deputy Director Darryl Lansing. In order to convince the U.S. President that the CIA needed more funding, Lansing wanted to find an excuse for the former that there were great foreign threats to the United States of America, even telling Eda that she could use Roanapur as the place where the CIA could build its power without interference. Looking at her boss Ravencroft, Eda realized that she would not get help from him and had to do things on her own ability to fulfill Darryl's plan. Going back to Roanapur, Eda spoke with Sister Yolanda about the CIA's plan to show that the marriage between Tricia O'Sullivan and Zeng Shunten's grandson was bad due to the Zeng family's connections to the Fujianese crime syndicate Budaibang.

Although skeptical, Yolanda agreed to let Eda use the church for her operations, and Eda summarized how the CIA would abduct Tricia by hypnotizing her to come to Roanapur and then convince Tricia's father that his daughter would be safe once he severed his friendship with the Zeng family. The young nun concluded that she would only engage in liaison work and not directly engage in the kidnapping, which would be done by the foreign agent Cardinas Sheringham, nicknamed "Wizard." The two nuns then remembered that the Roanapur-based freelancer Lotton was also nicknamed "Wizard" but laughed off the idea that the latter man was Sheringham. Later after Lotton "saved" Tricia at the Yellow Flag, he unintentionally brought Tricia to the Rip-Off Church chapel, surprising Eda, who had left a cellphone on the altar for the agent to use. Seeing the cellphone, Lotton picked it up and answered the call while Eda used a voice changer to disguise her voice.

Beginning to speak, Eda addressed Lotton as "Wizard" because the contact was coincidentally nicknamed "Wizard," and he muttered a line about how prophets were useless if God could use a telephone. Brushing off Lotton's unusual question about God "abandoning" Tricia, Eda asked him for a report. When Lotton told her that the men at the bar claimed to be working for Zeng Shunten, she swallowed her words in pain as that meant that Budaibang would become involved in her CIA plan Operation Persephone, which would have to change course. Albeit annoyed by Lotton's berating of her, Eda wondered how an aloof man like him could take on two Budaibang thugs with ease, thinking that he was possibly smart but feigned being an idiot. Lotton confidently told the disguised Eda that he could protect the girl, and Eda in turn assessed the situation to figure out why Budaibang interfered instead of Philip O'Sullivan.

Knowing that Darryl's subordinates would prevent Philip from finding out about the CIA's involvement in Tricia's disappearance, Eda had time to think of a story to concoct regarding how Budaibang's intervention made the situation worse for Philip's daughter, so she advised Lotton to take Tricia to room 207 at the Ramsap Inn as a safehouse. Speaking in his usual grandiose matter, Lotton replied that God's guidance would take them to safety, annoying Eda. Begrudgingly agreeing, Eda responded that he could choose a place but needed to be discreet. After Lotton ended the call, Eda mistook Lotton and Sheringham as the same person, but she entrusted that he would fulfill his end of the operation and she herself would try to distract the police and Watsap so that they were baited away from discovering her involvement in the recent mess in Roanapur.

Later the next night after Lotton and the Lagoon Company fought several Budaibang gangsters at Sankan Palace Hotel, Eda had not received any calls from the agent, so she decided to call Richie Leroy for information. Answering the phone quickly, Leroy asked Eda why she was calling so late. Beginning her inquiry after brief banter, Eda asked him if he knew of any recent news about Shenhua's friend Lotton, agreeing to pay him at his usual price. Although hoping that he knew nothing, Leroy answered that Lotton was involved in a battle at the hotel which resulted in seven dead Budaibang gangsters, making Eda's heart sink. She was at least relieved to hear that no one realized Tricia's importance, lying to Leroy that she focused on Lotton because he still owed her money after a poker game.

Finishing the call and concluding that Lotton had messed up, she decided to look for him until she sudenly got a phone call from him. Hearing him speak, Eda listened to Lotton carefreely ask if "God saw everything from his throne," angering Eda enough to tell him that he had messed up since many people got word of his actions. Changing her plan, Eda ordered Lotton to kill Tricia, adding that she would take care of corpse disposal. Lotton annoyed her again with his nonsensical speech, so she hung up on him and decided to treat him as a traitor if he did not follow her instructions. Later when Lotton agreed to confide in Rock about his recent involvement with Tricia, Eda got a call from her superior Ravencroft about how the CIA failed to persuade Philip O'Sullivan about the Zeng family's criminal ties. He then told Eda to make her own judgment for the rest of the mission, meaning that she gained tacit approval for her plan to kill Tricia.

Getting a call at 7 a.m., Eda thought that the "Wizard" would be calling again but instead recognized Rock's voice on the other end. Rock, who thought that he was talking to someone else, threatened to kill Tricia if he did not receive a $300,000 ransom. As Rock told Eda that she could resell Tricia for a higher price, she guessed that Rock would not be blackmailing her if he knew that the phone belonged to a CIA agent. Once agreeing to Rock's terms to get another call at a later time, Eda proclaimed to herself that Rock was a dead man walking. Unknown to Eda, Rock was able to get help from Balalaika and her Vysotniki to ensure that he would be protected by snipers. At the appointed time, Eda answered her phone and confirmed to Rock that she was able to get his money, so he ordered her to bring the money to the Marnie Juni Motel two hours later.

Close to the dropoff time, Eda had brought a suitcase with a gun inside instead of money, also waiting to execute her plan since she needed to know if Rock was working alone or with his crew. Going elsewhere, Eda hired a local drug user, Gibert, to kill Rock at the meeting location when the time was right. She then visited the Yellow Flag to check on Bao for information but coincidentally found Rock at the counter alone. Seeing that Rock was gloomy and heavily drinking, Eda teasingly asked him if he had a hard job, claiming that she finished doing an errand for Praiyachat. As Rock commented that his job's stakes were too much, he noticed the time on his wristwatch and left, so Eda finished drinking her glass and went into an alleyway to change into her casual clothing. Arriving near the motel in advance, Eda only saw that Gibert was there and not Rock, worrying her. As she prepared her Glock pistol and guessed that the Lagoon Company only cared about smuggling Tricia out of Roanapur, she saw Rock arriving and prepared to shoot him until she heard a gunshot, seeing that Gibert got killed by a sniper. Frozen by fear, Eda realized that she could not make a move as Rock stole Gibert's cellphone that Eda had planted on him, and her operation had failed.

Later, Eda called Ravencroft using a phone line via satellite, informing him that later details on Operation Persephone would be submitted in writing at a later date. When Eda stated that she took responsibility for not stopping the Wizard's breach of trust, Ravencroft assured her that no report was necessary and that she would not be reprimanded, shocking her. Ravencroft himself specified that the operation ended before Eda even started it on her end, saying that Lansing was demoted for his own failure. Thanking Eda for her report, Ravencroft commented that her actions at least helped him see that the CIA should not actively interfere in a town like Roanapur, confusing her. He then specified that Sheringham had died the day before Tricia arrived in Roanapur, shocking Eda, and he demanded to know who she had collaborated with if the real "Wizard" was already dead.

Sometime later, Eda visited the Yellow Flag and saw Revy and Rock at the counter, and she tried to flirt with Rock until Revy warned her to back off. Poking fun at Revy's bad mood, Eda asked her if she still had irregular periods. Although Revy wanted to fight, Eda advised her to calm down, ordering a bottle of Trois Riviere from Bao. Clarifying that she wanted to clear her sorrows, she offered some of the bottle to Revy but especially to Rock, wanting a toast. As Revy again told her to quit flirting with Rock, Eda poured a glass for them both, and Rock did not hesitate to grab his glass. When Revy questioned Eda, the nun told her not to worry about it, stating that God's plan was beyond their comprehension. Concluding that they could not think about life all the time, Eda began to drink and encouraged Revy to join in.

Eda Initial Stage history[]

In the second official Black Lagoon spinoff manga Eda Initial Stage (authored & illustrated by Hajime Yamamura with co-authorship by Rei Hiroe), the series focuses on Eda's first missions when she joined the Central Intelligence Agency and her travels across the world.

Devastating New Face[]

In the present, Eda spoke with Rico concerning the presence of weapons caches, and the young man confirmed the info. When Eda told Rico not to call her "sis," she saw something in a nearby crowd, with her shock surprising Rico. He asked her what she saw, and she merely commented to herself that she saw something that she should not have. Back in the past, Eda began her first field job as a new agent of the CIA after having graduated from Harvard University. Accordingly, she was sent to a Central American country to gather intelligence on the local cartel there using help from a fellow agent, Ruggles. In the country, Eda was pulled over by several men who were secret police that tried to interrogate her, but she freed herself and single-handedly dealt with the men to Ruggles's amazement.

Afterward, Ruggles introduced Eda to their cartel informant Enrique Gasol, who had infiltrated the cartel enough to be the boss's right-hand man. Eda disliked Enrique's attitude, sarcastically telling the boy that it would be a pleasure to work with him. Later at a restaurant, Ruggles advised Eda to get along with Enrique and reminded her that she had great diplomatic privileges as a CIA agent. In response, Eda remembered how a captured officer got killed in Beirut in 1978, irritating Ruggles. He sternly asked her not to interrupt him, though she muttered that he should not make questionable claims. When Eda earnestly remarked that she joined the CIA to uphold the honor of the United States, Ruggles burst into laughter, annoying her.

Later after having gotten some information from the informant, Eda was prepared to leave the country with Ruggles and Enrique when the cartel forced them into a firefight. Subsequently, Eda killed several of their men, but Enrique betrayed her and kicked her off the roof. Although at gunpoint, the men surrounding Eda were killed by a secret policeman, and Eda quickly grabbed her pistol and tried to shoot back. Walking in a daze, Eda suddenly saw Ruggles's body fall in front of her, instinctively making her shoot upward as she took cover. As she was shocked, Enrique came down from the roof and was enraged that someone else, not him, had killed Ruggles. Pointing her pistol at him, Eda ordered him to get her out of the area. As they walked onto the roof, Enrique got shot and fell off the roof, and Eda turned around to see the secret police officer that she beat up before. In the standoff, Eda jumped to the side and shot the man. Going downstairs to the alleyway below, Eda saw that Enrique had survived and ran away, leaving a trail of blood behind.


After only 4 days of being in the field, Eda was forced to leave her assignment. Thanks to Richard Ravencroft's defense of her work, Eda was permitted to continue engaging in field missions. While training with fellow agents, Eda got pinned down, but the agent commended her for her excellent combat skills. Looking over Eda, her new partner Amber Whinberry introduced herself, and the two started their new mission to engage in domestic espionage and talk to an informant, Percy, in Miami regarding local drug deals. During the mission, Eda and Amber got into a fight at a bar, but Amber sat by and drank while Eda fought off the hooligans with another bar customer, Glenn. Once going to a motel to speak to Percy, Eda was held at gunpoint and the situation escalated when Percy bragged that Eda was CIA and would save him. Using her own skills and Amber's arrival, Eda and Amber fought off the men and fled the scene with the informant, who they noticed had gotten shot and soon died. Eda berated Amber for pretending to be drunk so that the former would confront the men first, but her partner responded that she could handle herself fine.

Finding out that Percy was a police officer and so were his colleagues at the motel including another cop who got killed, the two women realized that they were actually investigating police corruption. After burying Percy's body, the two women visited a bar called Social Club, where they would meet Rona Hunt, an escort associated with Percy. Although they told Rona that they were not cops, the woman still wanted payment for her information concerning the key that Percy had. Once getting the money, Rona confirmed that the key was to a locker near a train station somewhere. As she agreed to write down the approximate address, a couple of police cars stopped outside the bar and several cops went inside demanding to see Rona, so Eda and Amber quickly left but were still pursued by the officer who spotted them. As they got into the car, they turned around to see that the officer pursuing was the same man, Glenn, who fought alongside Eda at the bar.

After examining the storage locker, Amber brought Percy's bag of belongings to the van, where Eda also saw that there were money and drugs inside the bag. Calling the local Miami cops at their police station, Amber told the chief that they could return the drugs and money in return for all the documents that Percy had inside the motel, so the police chief agreed and asked where they should meet. As the chief and his assistant drove in a car on the way, Amber used the van to block their path, forcing their car to stop as she walked to the window wearing a gas mask and sprayed knockout gas inside their vehicle. Bringing the chief to a small field, Eda and Amber found out that the documents had little info written on them. Annoyed, Amber berated the chief, who calmly explained that Percy was not the type of person to write detailed information.

When Amber demanded that the chief bring them to Percy's place, Eda argued with her about the state of their mission, and Amber responded that they had to get the blame off themselves, adding that they could use the chief as leverage against his fellow officers for more information. Subsequently, the two agents were guided to Percy's house, where the chief sat with tied hands on the couch while Eda and Amber searched the furniture for important info. Although the chief explained that he got involved with criminals to get money for treating his wife's leukemia, Eda did not believe his story and showed no sympathy. Examining a small drawer, Amber discovered a ledger with a list of Percy's partners, so she returned the bag of money and drugs to the chief.

As the two women exited the house after promising to return the chief to his police station, several bullets flew by, forcing them back inside the residence. Outside, Glenn kept his rifle's sights on the house since he wanted revenge on Eda and Amber for killing Hancock. Preparing her pistol, Eda went to the back of the house and caught Glenn and another cop off guard, shooting at them and successfully hitting the other cop. Rolling into his range, Eda pointed her pistol in Glenn's face, smugly smiling but being quickly pushed down by Glenn. As Glenn aimed his rifle, Eda pulled out her revolver and pushed it right into his neck, bidding him goodbye with a single lethal shot, surprising Amber and the chief. Afterward as they waited for backup while the chief accepted defeat, Amber jokingly asked Eda how much longer she thought that she would live by lethal means, ticking off Eda

Wandering Old Case Officer[]

When Ravencroft agreed to help a fellow high-ranking agent, Chesterton, privately deal with the rogue ex-agent Harold Meyer, the former discreetly assigned Eda and Amber to find Meyer. As Eda drove, Amber recalled how those at the top in the CIA had to pay off the cops and make up for the two officers whom they killed. Once learning on the way about Meyer's history as an ex-DDR official who defected to the U.S.A. and became a counter-espionage agent, the two arrived at Meyer's house. Inside, they found nothing there but discovered newspaper articles that the old man had thrown out in a dumpster. Driving to the town mentioned in the newspaper article about an ex-CIA agent, they went into a neighborhood and spotted Meyer walking on the street. Eda stopped her car near him as Amber informed him that the agency sent them, but the old man immediately pulled out a submachine gun and began shooting at them, forcing the women to flee. As Eda confirmed that she was alright after crashing into a streetlight pole, Amber revealed that she had been shot in the right shoulder.

Sometime later in a large building after Amber's wound was treated, Eda and Amber spoke with the ex-agent, Jeremy Stainton, about how Meyer wanted to kill him. Eda relayed to Stainton the summary of Meyer's background in East Germany, with Stainton responding that he was doing charity work to atone for his days in the CIA. Eating at a restaurant after speaking with Stainton, Eda asked Amber if she believed Stainton's guilt. Sipping her drink, Amber answered that her experience had taught her to never trust any active or retired agent. In the hotel, Eda took a bath while Amber checked her shoulder bandages. When the relaxed Eda began dressing, Amber recommended that she review the paper archives on Meyer since she already finished briefing herself. Later at the charity event, Eda and Amber attended the place to keep watch of Stainton as he gave a speech. While standing in the back, Eda clarified that she did not read the case files and archives on Meyer that Amber offered, annoying the latter woman. Eda tried to calm her by guessing that Stainton recruited Meyer as an alleged ex-Nazi to recruit scientists after the war, but Amber told her that her guess was dead wrong. Subsequently, Amber explained that Stainton had participated in Project Bluebird (later renamed Project Artichoke and then MKUltra) brainwashing operations during his time in Frankfurt in West Germany.

After Stainton had finished the speech, Meyer suddenly appeared to him in the back area and pointed his pistol at Stainton. As Meyer reminded Stainton of his past actions at a mansion, Eda and Amber had rushed to find him and at that point burst into the room, causing Meyer to point his gun at Stainton's head. Recognizing the women, Meyer calmly explained that his parents and sister fled to West Germany and were put into military custody at Camp King, the same place where some MKUltra experiments occurred. Once joining the CIA, Meyer examined the Operation Bluebird files and found out that his family had been used as guinea pigs in the tortuous experiments, but he could not do anything as he was an agent and already had a new family. As he yelled in anger, Amber threw a smoke grenade to block Meyer's vision while she and Eda quickly charged at and disarmed him. Eda heard Amber criticizing his late revenge, but Meyer warned her that she should watch herself lest she fell into the same trouble and torture.

Afterward, Meyer was put into police custody for criminal trespassing, and Eda saw the worried Stainton and joked that he had to deal with quite the danger for charity work. Turning to her, he thanked her, saying that the United States had acted in such ways due to their paranoia about the USSR. After Amber remarked that Meyer would probably be put in a detention center but in good care, Eda and Amber remembered their damaged car and how they would have to personally pay for repairs since they were not on an official mission.

Balkan crisis[]

In the Balkan peninsula in the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Eda was driven by an interpreter, Rashida, into the country's border to a small city. Arriving at an office, Eda spoke to the CIA agent Tobias, who had summoned her because he needed a female agent but was disappointed upon meeting her. As Tobias mentioned that his men were spying on an Islamic charity group, Eda rhetorically asked if the charity was a front. Tobias confirmed, elaborating that Muslim volunteers aided Bosnian Muslims trapped between Croatian and Serbian forces during the last Yugoslavian Civil War, but a few of the groups among the many volunteers were quite extremist and began plotting trouble after the Dayton Agreement. Finishing the explanation, Tobias said that their insider among the suspects was a woman, clarifying that he needed Eda since the Muslims in the group were less suspicious about same-sex friendships.

Soon, Rashida helped Eda don a hijab, which Eda was hesitant to wear since she saw plenty of women throughout the city without one. She assured Eda that the hijab would suppress suspicion about her. Once donning it, Eda listened to Tobias explain that the female informant would go into town every three days to buy food, and contact would be established via a passphrase. On the day, Eda went to the market and confirmed her part of the passphrase, relieving the fellow hijab-clad woman. Walking together, Eda whispered to ask about her intel, but the woman replied that she need to buy something first to ease the situation, annoying Eda. When the woman continued buying food, Eda grabbed her arm and sternly told her that they were not accompanying one another to have fun.

Glad to hear that Eda was a CIA agent of influence, the woman quickly slipped a piece of paper to her and walked away. Confused, Eda then got bumped into by an angry man, and she apologized but could not understand his language. Eda tried to awkwardly walk away, but the man pursued her, so she ran and eventually took cover on a railing beneath a tall bridge. Returning to Tobias, Eda removed her hijab and threw the small paper at him, furiously asking what was wrong with the woman since she was a bad agent. Examining the paper, Tobias casually warned her to be careful how she spoke to her superior, saying that she would not die in the field so long as she followed instructions. After the meeting, Eda poured some alcohol and expressed to herself her dislike for Tobias. Sitting down next to Eda, another male agent joined her for a drink, with Eda commenting that she thought her job would be finding and arresting war criminals. Responding that war criminals were already assets to the CIA, the man told her not to give up since each agent had a role to play in their missions. He then fell asleep drunk, angering Eda since she still wanted to drink more alcohol.

Deciding to play a role, Eda then met the informant again and received another envelope, giving it to Tobias. She then asked if the information was actually useful since he only spent a short time reading the intel, but Tobias told her to mind her business as she left the room. Eating food with Rashida, Eda asked her why she took the interpreter job, and the woman explained that she wanted to see what happened in her own country during the war since she was born in Bosnia but she grew up with her exile parents in Germany. Re-donning her hijab, Eda walked through town and got another envelope. Later during the next contact, Eda saw the woman with a bruised face after her husband had beaten her, and the woman calmly grabbed Eda's arm and told her to come with her. As Eda followed the contact, she thought to herself that their meeting was too long, and they arrived at the bridge.

Although on edge, Eda listened to the contact speak about her late husband being killed in the VRS's bombings during the war, saying that she dreamed of going to the U.S.A. Angered at her lack of info and thinking that she had been spotted, Eda put out her own cigarette and noticed several men walking toward them from both sides, telling the women not to move. Thinking fast, Eda shot all the men and fled, and she got to an empty part of town. Reloading her pistol and lamenting her lack of bullets, a ninja-like woman suddenly appeared and attacked Eda, whom was quickly disarmed by the assailant. The woman then spoke in Serbian about Jesus Christ having mercy on Eda and then shot her, knocking her down a hill as she was consequently surrounded by a few armed men.

After having her face covered and taken into a small house that night, Eda was tied up and her captors removed the bag from her head. Eda denied that she was a CIA agent, but the leading interrogator punched her several times, not fazing her. Pushing her onto the ground, the man told her to prepare herself when his leader would arrive, and he left. As Eda wondered why the Serbian Christian assassin let her be captured by Muslims, she moved her tied hands from behind her back to her front. Entering the room, the informant found Eda and clarified that her superior Tobias planned for her to be captured in order to create a spying opportunity, angering her. The woman then assured Eda that she would rescue her, asking in return for herself and her daughter to be given U.S. citizenship since she wanted to escape her current husband who was a mujahideen fighter.

Remembering Amber showing her a picture of the former's daughter, Eda wondered why that came to mind, and she agreed to help the contact, subsequently being given a pistol. As the two women exited the house, the extremists surrounded them and told them not to move. Seeing her daughter at gunpoint, the contact pleaded with Eda to lower her gun. In the crowd, Eda was surprised to see the group's "emir" (Osama bin Laden) among them. As Eda watched the husband order one of his men to kill the daughter, the man's head was blown apart by a sniper, and Tobias and several CIA agents killed several of the men as the rest fled. Eda herself got up and quickly shot several men near her, and she checked on the contact and her daughter's well being. Once the area soon became secured, Eda reconvened with Tobias and demanded to know the full story.

He then informed Eda about how the U.S. had supported the Bosnian Muslim side since the civil war's start, and later on some anti-American extremists appeared, but the CIA was not able to convince the Bosnian government to cut ties with the extremist faction. Subsequently, the CIA concocted a plan for an agent to be abducted by militants, which would give them an excuse to force the Bosnian government to cut ties. Although Eda was angry for being used and replied that she would not just let herself be killed, she sternly asked Tobias to give asylum to the two Bosnian women as a favor. She promised to pay him after the mission, and he agreed. Thanking Eda, the contact smiled and embraced her daughter, but Eda looked away and advised that they leave. At that moment, the contact and her daughter were shot by an enemy sniper, killing them. Shocked, Eda froze as Tobias ordered her to take cover.

Furious at the women's murders, Eda took one of the agent's cars and pursued the husband and his men, catching up to them and shooting their back tire in the process. As the enemy car crashed over, another extremist got out and asked the husband if he was alright. Stealthily walking, the Serbian Christian woman appeared and killed the extremist and was about to kill the husband when Eda pointed her gun and ordered her to freeze since she wanted to kill the husband. In response, the Serbian woman stabbed her sword into the husband's leg, taunting Eda to try and stop her. Eda shot at her, but the assassin evaded her bullet and attacked. In the tangling, Eda managed to push the woman's arm away and shoot near her head, pushing off her head covering. Eda then tackled the woman down a hillside while the husband tried to flee.

As he dragged himself along the grass, Eda pointed her pistol at him, and he responded that divine justice would befall her. Not concerned, Eda shot him once, killing the terrorist. Catching up, the blonde Serbian woman asked if the mother and daughter were dead, which Eda solemnly confirmed. Eda then found out from the assassin that she was the contact's collaborator as well as the collaborator trying for three months to track down the husband's group in vain. Finding out that the woman was trying to track down the "rich Arabian guy" (bin Laden) and his group al-Qaeda, Eda asked her what her affiliation was given her Serbian background, but the woman only told Eda to try and find out, greeting her goodbye. The next day, Rashida drove Eda out of the small city, speaking about how Tobias reprimanded the latter.

Suspicious of Rashida, Eda ordered her to stop the car and then put her pistol to Rashida's head, rhetorically asking her if she was linked to the Serbian Christian woman. Even though Rashida denied the association, Eda elaborated that she knew her group of Serbian women was trying to use the CIA to rid of extremists in her country, baffled as to why a Bosnian like her would team up with a Serbian due to the latter country's hostility toward Bosnia. Speaking seriously, Rashida admitted to being half-Serbian, clarifying that she had a home in Yugoslavia until the country's collapse and subsequent re-stigma of having two nationalities. When she said that the peace after the war allowed her to live again, Rashida posited that the extremists wanted to change that and thus she did not want foreigners to determine the country's destiny. Eda sarcastically thanked her for using the CIA for her own benefit, but she sheathed her pistol instead of shooting Rashida, declaring that she was tired and that Tobias still could use Rashida's help.

A Savage Place[]

Sometime later, Eda returned to the United States and was on vacation with Amber. As she drove while Amber sat in the passenger seat, Eda remained angry and remembered the faces of the mother and daughter back in Bosnia. Noticing the Mercedes-Benz behind them, Amber warned Eda that it was the same car that followed them earlier earlier, but the Benz immediately rear-ended them. Later, Eda was captured by a prepper in the Deep South, and Amber traveled with another person to rescue her. As Amber's acquaintance began fighting the prepper, Eda got free and reunited with Amber, tossing a pistol to the latter woman so that they could team up against the survivalist.

Gore Gore Girl history[]

Volume 2[]

Sister Yolanda had to leave the chapel for the night, so she left Eda in charge during her absence. In the evening, a father and child had visited the chapel so that the former could request an exorcism for his allegedly possessed child, but Eda refused. The man then started to speak words that she did not understand and then shot his child, causing Eda to shoot him in turn. Annoyed by the turn of events, Eda ordered Rico to clean up the mess, but as he entered the chapel, the apprentice priest began vomiting and went on a rampage, causing Eda to subdue him and tie him up. Knowing that Yolanda would be furious with the corpses and blood inside the chapel, Eda called Sawyer the Cleaner to come over that night to clean up the mess. As Sawyer arrived and sat in the pews, Eda yelled that normally Sawyer would normally be forbidden from entering the chapel but she had made a one-time exception.

The nun then showed her the tied-up Rico, yelling at him to ask how he was doing. As Rico turned around, his eyes rolled backward into his head and he began speaking violently toward Eda, repeatedly calling her a "bitch" and making sexual comments. Seeing that he had not recovered, Eda kicked him back onto the ground, then explaining the whole story to Sawyer. Once finishing, they heard a knock on the chapel door, so Eda prepared her Glock and opened the door, asking who was there since no one was in her sight. Seeing a huge mass of fog go her way, she again demanded the person to answer themselves.

Sensing someone behind her, Eda pointed the gun at the silhouette behind her, which disappeared before she could see it, angrily confusing her. The fog then surrounded her, scaring her backward and demanding the person to show themselves. Looking around, various human silhouettes with glowing eyes stared at Eda, frightening her. To her relief, Sawyer pulled through the fog with her chainsaw and charged at the group of silhouettes and began swinging at them manically. Eda smiled and clasped her hands, thanking Sawyer for dealing with the shadows. Deciding that Sawyer would deal with the intruders, Eda ran elsewhere in the chapel to retrieve Rico, but she only saw a loosened rope without Rico present.

Sensing someone behind her again, Eda turned around to see an apparition of a grinning Russell, terrifying her since she knew that she killed him a while back. Sawyer suddenly appeared and immediately thrust her chainsaw into Russell's back, and Eda's eyes began to spin, soon falling into unconsciousness after laughing and saying Jesus Christ's name. The next morning, Yolanda returned to the chapel and talked with someone, learning that there was a hallucinogenic gas in the cargo of the boat that crashed at the port the previous night, with the fog drifting up to the chapel. Seeing the tied-up Rico and the unconscious Eda and Sawyer next to the pews, Yolanda yelled at Eda to wake up, wash her face, and slowly explain herself, and the awakened Eda pleaded with the elderly nun to grant mercy on her.

Volume 3[]

Eda got invited by Dutch to go to a cookout at the beach with the Lagoon Company, so she gladly attended and wore a U.S. flag tank top. Once arriving, she tried a piece of the Kobe beef and commented that the meat's taste burst out when she took a bite. Smiling and showing a thumbs up to Revy, the Lagoon sailor only glared and asked her why she was there, telling her to go back to her bread and wine. Pointing to her own tank top, Eda happily stated that she was dressed up for a barbecue, but Revy berated her, saying that the meat was not for her. Eda defended herself by saying that Dutch invited her, trying another piece of meat and asking who cooked the delicious beef. Dutch chimed in and said that the Yellow Flag cook was responsible, surprising the women. Subsequently, Revy and Eda checked out the brisket and sauce while the broad-shouldered cook, Nhân, introduced himself.

While Rock was in town with Sawyer, Eda and Revy watched Nhân put the meat through a mincer, and Eda joked that Rock would faint if he saw the meat being ground, with Revy agreeing and both women not knowing that Rock at the same time had watched parts of a corpse be put into a mincer. Nhân prepared the remaining ingredients for the burgers, with Eda and Revy complimenting the buns, special sauce, and triple cheese. Immediately, the two women, Dutch and Benny began to try the human burgers thinking they had real beef. Rock subsequently arrived and saw Eda and the others munching on the burgers. Biting his lip in anguish, Rock screamed and vomited, making Revy ask what was wrong and berating him for throwing up in front of them.

Volume 4[]

While Rock accompanied Sawyer the Cleaner at a small storehouse for a job, Eda drank at the Yellow Flag counter with Revy. Eda looked at her and teasingly asked if Rock needed help, but Revy rebuffed her, responding that she already took care of the thugs who vandalized their products. Smiling, Eda teased her by asking if she even knew how to clean up the mess, also asking her if Rock would be alright being alone with another woman. Although confused for a second, Revy remembered and moved her head back in laughter, saying that Rock and the "goth girl" would be an interesting couple. Eda then teased her that it could happen since Rock's former country, Japan, was the home of hentai and they had "many fun toys." Revy remained silent and drank her glass, hitting back by passive-aggressively telling Eda to try one of those "toys" herself.

Volume 6[]

When a murderer called Wraith had a $50,000 bounty put on him, Eda was one of many who wanted the bounty, but everyone could not find the man since his appearance and real name were unknown. At the Yellow Flag, Eda drank at the counter with Revy as the latter lamented that she and Eda could not do anything and must leave the work to an informant. Interested, Eda lifted her glass and asked about the information, and Revy stated that a share of the bounty would be taken by the informant after tracking down the killer's appearance and whereabouts, adding that they would have to wait and see how the hunt turned out. Just then, several men entered the bar with one yelling that Wraith killed the informant who was searching for him, surprising the two women.
