"A bounty cannot be an inanimate object"

Ed was the police's scapegoat. since she's the best hacker on earth, they came to the conclusion that she was making the drawigs on earths surface.

In the anime and manga series Cowboy Bebop, most of the main characters are bounty hunters, and like the bounty hunters of today, the crew of the Bebop spends most of its time chasing dangerous criminals for rewards.

However, bounty hunting in the universe of Cowboy Bebop differs from other models of bounty hunting experienced in the past, best described as something of a hybrid of the Wild West mixed with governmental corruption associated with the Mafia and a touch of terrorism.

Bounties are offered by the Inter Solar System Police, better known as the ISSP, or local governments who operate branches of the ISSP in their own part of the solar system. Perhaps the best real life comparison to the ISSP would be Interpol, except with a more ubiquitous presence: officers or mentions of the ISSP are made in almost every episode and appear to be the sole force in charge of law enforcement at both the national and international level.

However, the resources of the ISSP appear to be limited to the point where they rely heavily on bounty hunters in order to prevent chaos, since most criminals shown in Cowboy Bebop are apprehended by bounty hunters rather than the police. A lampoon of America's Most Wanted geared towards bounty hunters called Big Shot appears often in the series as a plot device.

The limitations of the ISSP are also shown later in the series when it is stated that the Mars branch of the ISSP cannot stop the local crime syndicates in most cases.

In order to receive the bounty, the bounty hunter must turn in the criminal alive to the ISSP. Due to this single clause, many ordeals faced by the Bebop crew end with no profit.

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.



[edit]
Asimov Solensan

Episode 1: Asteroid Blues
Bounty 2,500,000 Woolongs
Height 6 ft 2 in
Weight 174 lb
Age 36
Residence Tijuana, Asteroid Belt

Catalina, Asimov's girlfriendAfter stealing a considerable amount of Red Eye from the local crime syndicate on the asteroid of Tijuana, he uses Catalina, his girlfriend, as a mule, disguising her as a pregnant woman to smuggle the goods off the asteroid for sale on Mars so the couple can live a better life. [1]

Spike meets the two near the Zona Norte in Tijuana thanks to assistance from an old Indian fortune teller named Old Man Bull, later to catch up with them again in a faux Red Eye deal.

Spike calls him a "small fry", a term used for bountyheads with average or below average rewards, but when he uses some of the Red Eye he stole, his reflexes and strength are nearly invincible for short periods of time until Spike figures out how to counter this advantage.

Asimov's character is based off of Antonio Banderas' portrayal of El Mariachi in the 1995 film "Desperado".


[edit]
Abdul Hakim

Session 2: Stray Dog Strut
Bounty 8,000,000 Woolongs
Height 6 ft 2 in (more like 6'7"; in mug shot at left stat box plainly at odds with height chart showing him to be slightly over 200cm tall)
Weight 233 lb
Residence Mars
Based on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the 1979 film Game of Death, this lanky customer has just received some reconstructive surgery in an attempt to avoid capture. He believes it will all be worth it after selling a rare, stolen "data dog" (Ein), which causes a group of researchers to chase after him along with Spike and Jet.


Hakim before his plastic surgeryAt one point in the episode, a petty thief snatched the dog while it was still in a sealed case, only to discover that it was "merely a dog", and tried to fence the dog at a local pet shop. Unfortunately for the thief, he could only convince the owner that it was worth 2 Woolongs before Hakim took the dog back.


[edit]
Faye Valentine

Session 3: Honky Tonk Women
Bounty 6,000,000 Woolongs
Age Appears 23 (age revealed in "My Funny Valentine")
Place of Birth Earth
The only bountyhead in the series who is also a bounty hunter (when she's not concocting some scheme to pay off her massive debt), Faye is caught by one of her creditors and is forced to be a card shark in a sting operation for a mysterious computer program hidden inside a poker chip with a computer hacking program inside, to be given to her by a man who looks like Spike.


Faye dressed as a card dealer during the initial stages of the scheme.Spike doesn't play along, and after taking on the entire casino's security staff, Spike and Jet capture Faye and handcuff her to the ship's toilet, much to her disdain, claiming she has claustrophobia due to her Romani heritage.

However, a series of events ensues where she somehow ends up with the much larger bounty for the computer program. After escaping, she spends the entire reward before the next episode where she meets the crew of the Bebop once again.




[edit]
"Twinkle" Maria Murdock

Session 4: Gateway Shuffle
Bounty 25,000,000 Woolongs
Residence Ganymede
[2] Head of the Space Warriors — a once peaceful ecological activism group that now relies on terrorism more violent than the local crime syndicates — "Twinkle" and her sons fighting for the survival of the Ganymede Sea Rat, even if they have to release a genetically engineered virus called "Monkey Business" that will mutate all of Ganymede's human population into monkeys.


Twinkle and her sons, the current Space Warriors, plan the dispersal of "Monkey Business" over dinner.She's caught early on in the episode by Spike and Jet, but her sons blackmail the government of Ganymede with the threat of releasing "Monkey Business" to get rid of the bounty on her head. This move succeeds until Twinkle moves into hyperspace and releases the virus, only to have it trapped in hyperspace once the Gate is closed. Spike had sneaked a vial of the virus into Twinkle's pocket before she was transferred back to her ship, and it bursts open when the ship is locked in hyperspace.


[edit]
Mao Yenrai

Session 5: Ballad of Fallen Angels
Height 5 ft 6 in
Weight 133 lb
Age 52
Bounty 28,000,000 Woolongs
Residence Mars
A major underboss with the Red Dragon clan, Mao Yenrai is Spike's mentor and wanted Spike to stay with the syndicate. Mao's bounty is actually part of an elaborate ruse to lure Spike into a face-to-face meeting with his arch-nemesis, Vicious, who killed Yenrai earlier in the episode to take his place in the syndicate.

Spike is ultimately more interested in dealing with his demons rather than the large bounty on Yenrai's head, which causes Faye to fall into the trap instead, setting the stage for the first of several showdowns between Spike and Vicious over the course of the series.


Yenrai looks out the window after completing a deal with the White Tiger Syndicate, just before his assassination by Vicious.Yenrai serves as the impetus for the first foray into Spike's melancholy past in Episode 5 -- a story arc that comprises the backbone of the Cowboy Bebop story.

Yenrai has the second largest price on his head of all the bountyheads in the televised series, following only cult leader Londes in Session 23 (Brain Scratch).


[edit]
Giraffe

Session 6: Sympathy for the Devil
Bounty 3,000,000 Woolongs
"Giraffe" used to run the Self Defense Squad with a man named "Zebra", that is, until a mysterious boy named Wen came into the picture. Zebra is now in a vegetative state under the ward of Wen, and Giraffe believes this is due to foul play and tries to rectify the situation, an act that costs Giraffe his life just as Spike steps into the fray.


Dossiers on Giraffe and ZebraJust before Giraffe dies, he gives a small stone created out of hyperspace radiation and the moon to Spike, saying "it will be able to bring time back to Wen".

The rest of Sympathy for the Devil is spent with the Bebop crew trying to uncover the mystery of Zebra, Giraffe, and Wen leading back to the Gate Incident of 2021.


[edit]
Decker

Session 7: Heavy Metal Queen
Bounty 12,000,000 Woolongs
A Woody Allen lookalike, Decker's only distinguishing mark is a dragon tattoo on his arm. An expert on high explosives, Decker is carrying around a great deal of the dangerous material on his interplanetary freight truck, which happens to have a picture of the Hindu goddess Saraswati painted on the top.


The man who Faye thought was Decker. However, his tattoo was of an eel (not pictured here) rather than a dragon.Unfortunately for the crew of the Bebop, there is little information about Decker other than his tattoo, causing Faye to attempt apprehending a Decker lookalike. However, this doesn't stop a slew of other bounty hunters from attempting to find Decker in the belief that he's nearby, leading to Spike to get in a fight of a few of them known only as the "Something Brothers".


[edit]
Huey, Dewey and Louie
Left to Right Louie, Huey, Dewey

Session 8: Waltz for Venus
Combined Bounty 1,500,000 Woolongs
Height 5 ft 10 in (Huey);
5 ft 6 in (Louie);
5 ft 11 in (Dewey)
A group of small fries, Spike and Faye capture them as they try to hijack an inbound flight to Venus. Named after the Disney characters Huey, Dewey and Louie.


Huey looking angrily at Spike during the hijacking, waking him up in the process.They end up splitting the bounty, much to the chagrin of Spike, who believes Faye will just waste the reward money.

The hijacking of the spaceliner by the trio was an impetus for Adult Swim to not air Waltz For Venus for several months after the Attacks of September 11.


[edit]
Piccaro Calvino's Gang and Roco Bonnaro

Session 8: Waltz for Venus
Bounty 500,000 Woolongs (Calvino),
100,000 Woolongs per (others);
Double Bonus if all caught
Residence Venus

Roco's blind sister, having a cup of tea with Spike
An infoscreen on the Grey Ash plant.
Roco shows Spike his "Kung Fu" stance in the Venus Spaceport.
Piccaro Calvino and his gang, sans Roco.A group of around six small fry gangsters on Venus, they managed to get their hands on a rare plant known as Grey Ash, the key ingredient in curing Venus Sickness. However, one member of the gang named Roco Bonnaro has stolen the plant in order to give it to his sister, who is afflicted with Venus Sickness, a local disease causing blindness that can only be cured by the rare and expensive plant.

If the entire gang is caught together, the total of all the bounties is doubled. However, like with the computer chip in Episode 3, even that is only a fraction of what a plant of Grey Ash is worth, which is believed to be hundreds of millions of Woolongs per ounce.

Roco first meets the crew of the Bebop on the flight where Spike and Faye caught Huey, Dewey and Louie, and would like to learn the martial arts Spike used to subdue the hijackers in order to better defend himself from the impending reprisal from his former fellow gang members, annoying Spike to teach him "those Judo and Kung Fu" moves as he leaves the spaceport, much to Spike's chagrin.

Upon learning that Roco is a bountyhead, Spike showed some surprise since he eventually acquiesced into giving Roco a Jeet Kune Do lesson after Roco gave him a pill to help acclimate his voice to the helium rich atmosphere of Venus.

Roco's soft hearted demeanor provides a good explanation as to the low reward on his bounty, Roco is a much more average, stereotypical small fry than high level small fries such as Asimov Solensan or bottom of the barrel small fries like Witney Hagas Matsumoto.


[edit]
Radical Edward

Session 9: Jamming With Edward
Bounty 8,000,000 Woolongs
Residence Earth

Like Faye before her, Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV, A.K.A "Radical Edward", is a fairly innocuous bountyhead that becomes a member of the Bebop crew after Spike and Jet try and capture her. Unlike Faye, Edward has a sweet and quixotic nature.

A legendary netdiver from an Earth still ravaged from the Gate Incident of 2021, rumors about Edward abound. If they were true, Edward would be a "3 year old 7 foot tall ex-basketball pro gay alien". In the end, she's just an abandoned savant girl with a knack for internet hacking and net diving. She becomes an invaluable member of the team in the role of gathering information.

Later on in the series, Edward makes a deep connection with Ein and the two become inseparable.

Ultimately, the real bountyhead of this episode isn't Edward, but rather a sentient satellite that is making giant laser carvings in South America out of loneliness.

However, regardless of who did it, the Earth authorities take advantage of the laser carvings in order to launch a hacker hunt, and use the fact that the satellite can't be tried for any crimes as an excuse for not paying the Bebop crew any bounty.

A little known fact is that the character of Edward was based on Cowboy Bebop's composer Yoko Kanno.[citation needed]
