Hex was a talented programmer that was widely considered to be a genius due to his long-standing hold of the Champion Seat of the CosmoNet Chess tournament series. At the age of 30 he joined the Hyperspace Gate Project and, ultimately, played a key role in the development of the central control system used in all gates. However, Hex soon began to have doubts about the functionality of the control systemóbelieving it to have defects. Upon discovering that these defects were intentionally added by the Gate Corporation to ensure further revenue, Hex developed a plan to be executed 50 years in the future that would allow criminals to hijack the Astral Gate toll booths.

* FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon: But he didn't start out that way. [[spoiler:He was just an ordinary kid once, but in the intervening sixty(!) years he's come to care about absolutely no one but himself, and will kill anyone if he thinks they might expose his secret.]]

%%[[folder:Wen]][[folder:Wen]]
!!Wen
->'''Appeared in:''' "Sympathy for the Devil"

A young boy who travels the system playing the harmonica, but with shadowy figures closing in on him.
----
* CaptivityHarmonica: Plays harmonica like a veteran bluesman five times his age. [[spoiler:Which is about how old he is, chronologically. He values his freedom and will kill to protect it.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: He's experienced quite a lot for a twelve-year-old. [[spoiler:But not a 62-year-old escaped lab subject and hardened killer who lived through the destruction of Earth and has been on the run for decades.]]
* FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon: But he didn't start out that way. [[spoiler:He was just an ordinary kid once, but in the intervening sixty(!) years he's come to care about absolutely no one but himself, and will kill anyone if he thinks they might expose his secret.]]
* TheGunslinger: Revealed he's a great shot with a pistol.
* NeverGrewUp: He's never going to look any older than he does now [[spoiler:thanks to the Astral Gate Incident somehow seemingly freezing him in time.]]
* NighInvulnerable: His condition does more than slow down his aging, as it turns out. [[spoiler:He can take a bullet to the head and walk away, at least until Spike manages to peg him with a shot loaded with the same crystal that put Wen in his current state in the first place.]]
* NotGrowingUpSucks: Hates being stuck looking as young as he does. [[spoiler:Aside from the obvious, he's physically much weaker than adults, which he compensates for by being a great shot with a handgun. Immortality is a nice perk, though, as long as he can keep anyone from tracking him down [[TheyWouldCutYouUp to try and study him]] again.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: Even taking into account the art style, he looks considerably younger than twelve. Ed, for reference, is about thirteen. [[spoiler:Wen stopped aging during the Astral Gate Disaster on Earth, which was 54 years ago.]]
* PlayingWithSyringes: Like Ein, Mad Pierrot, and Vincent, he's spent a good portion of his life in a laboratory being subjected to experiments. [[spoiler:He eventually escaped, taking Zebra hostage in the process, keeping him drugged and wheelchair-bound so that he could serve as a Guardian for Wen.]]
* ShoutOut: His green suit, black shirt, and yellow tie are one of a few nods in the series to ''Anime/LupinThe3rd''.
* TheyWouldCutYouUp: Captured and kept in a lab for several years.
* TheUnreveal: The ''Bebop'' crew never really learn anything about exactly how Wen ended up in his current state. [[spoiler:He tells them the events themselves, but that doesn't explain how the Gate Disaster or the resulting debris could have had that effect in the first place.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: At the center of the plot in "Sympathy".
* WouldHurtAChild: Turns out [[spoiler:Spike would, shooting him with the crystal bullet that [[RapidAging finally kills him]] and hitting him right between the eyes.]]

* DarkAndTroubledPast: An ex cop who was known as the "Black Dog" during his time as an officer because of his stubbornness and relentlessness in chasing down suspects.

* {{Acrofatic}}: Surprisingly light on his feet for a guy his size. [[spoiler:Manages to climb aboard a slow-moving train and [[TraintopBattle run across the top]], which isn't as easy as it looks even if you're in better shape than Domino appears to be.]]
* TheBadGuyWins: Sort of. He gets away in the end, but only after [[spoiler:Ed and Ein catch up with him. He convinces them to accept a bag of mushrooms instead of turning him in for the bounty... Except it's a bag of ordinary mushrooms, and not actually worth anything. It doesn't seem to occur to Ed that she could have taken him ''and'' the mushrooms.]]
* BeardOfEvil: A goatee. Hard to say how evil he is, but he's the villain of the week.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: He doesn't remember selling mushrooms to the Shaft brothers, one of whom had a bad reaction and died of a twisted gut, [[DiedLaughing laughing himself to death]]. Which, in fairness, no one could have predicted, but having this reaction doesn't exactly help Domino's case. Either way, the surviving Shaft brother still wants him dead.
* CoolShades: Kind of. He wears a pair of tinted aviators with reddish-purple lenses.
* DreadlockRasta: His look, and he seems pretty chill in general (at least before Ed catches up with him).
* EverythingsBetterWithCows: He might have gotten away with it, if not for that lousy cow on the railroad tracks. And the dog. And the little... girl?
* FatBastard: Pretty tubby and a wanted criminal. [[spoiler:He manages to trick Ed into accepting a bag of ordinary shiitake mushrooms in exchange for letting him go, saying they're worth a fortune.]]
* FashionVictimVillain: Dreadlocks, cowboy hat, purple aviators, a tasseled leather vest, full-body rastafarian pajamas, sandals, and a big gut.
* HarmlessVillain: Relatively. He's apparently unarmed and doesn't deliberately hurt anybody onscreen. If he genuinely just grows and sells 'shrooms, Spike and Faye have done worse, and Ed has caused extensive property damage in her short career as a bounty hunter.
* KnockoutGas: Ed ambushes him on his ship with "stinky gas", with... [[BackwardsFiringGun mixed results]].
* NiceHat: Sort of? It's a plain white cowboy hat.
* NonActionGuy: He's unarmed and spends the whole episode running away from a teenage girl and her attack corgi, as well as a bounty hunter and a man who wants revenge for his brother's death. The latter are both armed with heavy artillery. Domino still manages to get away in the end.
* MushroomSamba: Straight out of the TropeNamer. Sells psychedelic mushrooms, which Ed tests on the rest of ''Bebop'', taking them out of action for most of the episode.
* OnlySaneMan: Becomes this as Ed takes over the episode and Coffee and Shaft go to increasingly desperate lengths to catch him.
* {{Prospector}}: Not his job, but wearing a pair of longjohns in one of the show's most overtly Western-themed locations can't be an accident.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Exit, pursued by a dog and child:
-->'''Ed:''' Get back here, you stinky cowpoke!
* TheStoic: You get the impression, based on his reaction to Shaft lugging his brother's coffin up to him in the middle of the street, that this is his default persona, but then Shaft pulls out a ''[[MoreDakka rocket launcher]]'', and you can tell he's just completely weirded out by Ed.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In the first episode Spike seems to be completely unfocused and easily overwhelmed by the bounty at the gas station, until he is revealed to have picked his pocket and stolen the his vial of "Bloody Eye" combat enhancer. In the climactic fight, Spike [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass easily takes down Asimov]] while wearing a serape in a [[ShoutOut reconstruction]] of one of Creator/BruceLee's most famous scenes.



* HeroesLoveDogs: Played with. Spike says he hates animals (and kids), but part of how you can tell he's not really a bad guy is that the worst he ever does is a little offhand snark to Jet. They don't exactly bond, but Spike risks his life, and loses the bounty on Hakim, to save Ein from falling in "Stray Dog Strut". Plus they seem to get along in the non-canon previews, which helps.



* BruiserWithASoftCenter: A musclebound cyborg, but also a cultured, sensitive bonsai enthusiast who has a soft spot for kids and animals.



* DarkIsNotEvil: Despite his intimidating, musclebound, angular, hairy, bald cyborg whose name is Jet Black, he's an ex-cop who only left the force because he was ''too'' incorruptible for the increasingly murky world of future law enforcement. For reference, lovable goofball Spike is a former yakuza enforcer, and despite her sunny choice of wardrobe Faye was, and is, a con artist and thief.



* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Despite his musclebound frame, Jet is a thinker and an observer. When the two goons show up in the shot-up bar in the first episode, Jet hides behind the counter and gets the drop on them -- then threatens one of them with a broken bottle while squeezing him with his metal arm, showing that he's not afraid to get his hands dirty or fall back on his intimidating appearance, either.
* {{Foil}}: He looks brutal and dangerous, but he's actually a teddy bear and ByTheBookCop under the surface. It's actually the seemingly goofy, lazy, lunkheaded Spike [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass you'd really have to]] [[BloodKnight watch out for]] in a fight.



* HeroesLoveDogs: Played entirely straight. It might have started out just as a way of getting under Spike's skin, but Jet comes to realize he was happy having a dog to take care of.



* OddFriendship: He and Spike have completely opposite temperaments -- not to mention Jet being a former cop, while Spike used to be a hitman and enforcer for the notorious Red Dragon Syndicate.

* CryingWolf: She lies, cheats, and steals constantly, so Spike and Jet are prepared to always believe the worst of her. Spike won't even put it past her to lie about her past even if she thought the only person she was telling is Ein.



* HiddenDepths: She has a surprisingly tragic past. [[spoiler:The plucky schoolgirl who sends a videoime capsule to her futur eself is basically unrecognizable to her, but seeing that recording is what allows Faye to finally start opening up again after years of being hurt. Too bad it's just in time for Ed and Ein to leave the ship, followed shortly by Spike going off to his almost-certain death against Vicious.]]

--->'''Faye:''' Show no mercy, for when it comes to high rollers, that's the way the game is played. The bell tolls even for the great ones, for they too must fall one day. Money makes the world go round, but before you know it, you can be buried under a mountain of debt.
** Contrast with her voiceover for "My Funny Valentine", accompanied by Spike and Jet's hilariously unbelieving reactions. Sad but funny: the story she tells in the next episode [[CryingWolf turns out to be the unvarnished truth]]... but only because she thought the only one she was telling was Ein.
--->'''Faye:''' ''[emphatically]'' Love is to believe in everything! Love is the heart that gives to all! Love is the heart that accepts everything! Whitney, you love me that much...\\
'''Jet:''' ''[scoffing]'' You really can't trust the previews on this one.
** Her final narration is [[spoiler:her repeating a series of tautologies ("The past is the past, the future is the future, the present is the present, I am who I am...") as a kind of SurvivalMantra,]] because in the next (and final) episode, [[spoiler:Spike goes off to what is likely to be his death, [[HeroicBSOD leaving Faye alone]], or so she thinks, all over again.]]
