What if Dutch's is actually one that requires him to make people think otherwise about him? What if his duty during Vietnam was so vital and important, or so dirty and despicable, that it's classified to a degree that the crew can't fathom right now?

[[WMG: Black Lagoon takes place in the same universe as Max Payne]]
Max's most recent game took place in 2013 in Brazil, prior to that the games take place in the early 2000s. By now in Max's universe Revy would likely be in her 30s and Balalaika would be elderly, if not dead already, and since Max seems to gravitate towards the worst places on earth, after his time in Brazil he'd end up in Roanapur. The city representing to Max, like it did for Revy and the others 'the last stop before Hell'. If a crossover ever happens, however unlikely, the story will deal with Max accidentally crossing, and taking on the remains of Hotel Moscow in 2017 or later. Discovering along the way the fates, or implied fates, of all the principal characters, apart from Rock, who'll turn out to be the standard 'manipulating Max from behind the scenes' character. It'll be left ambiguous whether he had something to do with his friend's deaths or disappearances when he chose to embrace the darkness of Roanapur, and rather than kill Rock, Max will join him, the two having become what they feared they would.

* It's pretty obvious Revy has killed people both inside and outside Roanapour, but there's still the mention of the attempted kill from before hiding out in Roanapour. I believe that the one she didn't kill was somebody important. I think it was possibly the son of a politician who was running for either mayor or governor. The son himself being an absolute asshole who thinks that because of who his Dad is, he's above the law. I'd say the altercation would've been that said son tried to rape Revy which would be a big mistake on his end. After the incident, the politician uses his son's incident as a way to win the election. He portrayed Revy as being an extremist supporter for his opponent. To further his chances of victory, he drums up this BS story that portrays the son as being this upstanding young citizen. Charitable donations, Varsity player, regular church goer, all of this to make sure the truth of him being a morally reprehensible human being. These tactics and the promise of putting Revy to death for the murders she committed and the son's current status. On the day of the trial, it was the definition of a Kangaroo Court. Paid off jurors, a paid off judge and false witnesses that all say that she started the whole thing. All of this culminating in Revy receiving the death sentence. Knowing that her execution was coming, Revy put together a plan that led to her escape. Knowing what would happen if she would go back to America, she leaves for Roanapour as a member of the Lagoon Company.

He is [[Film/HardBoiled Tequila Yuen]]. I have played ''VideoGame/{{Stranglehold}}'' before (Xbox360, starring Chow Yun Fat) and I noticed, TheMafiya is here, Tequila uses Mr. Chang's skills, and we know that Mr. Chang used to be a detective. His daughter probably died from that happened after he saved her in ''Stranglehold'', maybe something involving the police, prompting his switch from detective to triad boss. Plus, even though they were enemies, Yuen's father-in-law is a triad boss. He may have inherited that title after he switched sides.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG:Building on the above theory, Black Lagoon definitely shares a universe with [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Alucard]]]]
Revy is possibly Alucard's daughter seeing how she shares his bloodlust, love for akimbo pistols, and has rather vampire-like canines. This could mean that the Nazis the Black Lagoon crew encounters are part of Millennium and the Church of Violence a front for Iscariot.

** And immediately afterwards, Balalaika apologises for being late. How much longer did that scene last?

* But why put up the act with Hansel's death? Balalaika and her snipers were the only ones there, and it would have been easy to get the snipers to keep quiet, if she would even bring them at all, instead of "doing it herself".

* Jet and Dutch have similar backgrounds but contrasting motives (Jet was a former cop who left the police force in pursuit of, in his own way, law and justice; whereas Dutch was a former US Marine during the Vietnam War who went AWOL to become a mercenary).

[[WMG: Revy is an escaped {{Death Row}} inmate.]]
If you pay close attention to the opening (namely the part with the newspaper articles), there are two headlines that support this. "Revy was arrested for murder and attempted murder" and "The Judge ruled death by electrocution." Assuming that that is the case, I think the opening may have been dropping more hints about Revy's backstory before they become prevalent in the manga. In fact, I think this could be something that could play into the final arc. Working off of this idea, I've come up with a theory.

I believe that the one she didn't kill was somebody important. I think it was possibly the son of a politician who was running for either mayor or governor.

Considering the former takes place in the 90's (about twenty years prior to the events of ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare2''), this would fit perfectly. Both feature [[CrapsackWorld Crapsack Worlds]] where WWIII seems like it could break out at any minute, with Russia seeming rather nasty in particular. Balalaika used to do business with Zakhaev, but lost contact with him after witnessing his assassination attempt at the hands of Captain Price in Pripyat. Also, Pvt. Ramirez, the hero from ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare2'', is a distant relative of Roberta, explaining his unstoppable [[{{Badass}} badassery]].
