One evening Chancellor Ranjamaryam, the Princes chancellor, runs through the deserted nighttime streets of Madripoor lowtown chased by two men: One strong muscled man and a gaunt old man in sun glasses. They chase him to the ground and he begs them to spare him, that he will give them anything they want. Men bound by honor to their employer, they refused the chancellor's offers and slay him. Ranjamaryam's body is pulled out of the harbor later by Police Chief Tai, and attracts the attention of Patch, who comes to do his own investigation because Ranj was an old friend of his. When asking Tai about the murder he learns that Prince Baran was planning on naming Tyger Tiger as the new crimelord of Madripoor, and that someone might not be taking too kindly to this appointment. Patch decides to go off to follow his own leads gained from his investigation of Ranj's corpse.
Meanwhile at the airport hanger owned by South Seas Skyways, it's owner and primary pilot Archie Corrigan is being confronted by the men who killed Ranjamaryam. They introduce themselves as Roughouse and Bloodsport, and they warn him against taking business from Tyger Tiger. Bloodscream places his hand on Corrigan's hand causing him extreme pain and leaving his hand print on the man's body. They depart repeating their warning and advising him that if he takes another delivery for Tyger again they will come for his life.
Tracking Ranj's scent, Logan tracks it back to the chancellor's home where he slips past the armed guards. Inside there is a table set for two, and upon finding a woman's handkerchief locks on the scene, realizing who it belongs to Logan realizes that this complicates things. He tracks the scent to a classy hotel in Uppertown and in the room his fears are proven correct when he finds the New Mutant, Karma sleeping in the room. Without revealing himself to her he asks her what she is doing there. She explains that she is duty bound to help her uncle General Nguyen Ngoc Coy, and she is horrified when Logan informs her that the chancellor was murdered earlier this evening. Departing, he warns her to sort out her loyalties as she will be forced to suffer the consequences.
The next day in Lowertown, Lindsay McCabe and Jessica Drew are strolling through the central bazaar when their shopping is interrupted by Roughouse who attempts to charm the ladies into joining him for dinner before Bloodscream tells him that they have work to be done. As he walks away he offers the ladies a night on the town. Jessica is about give him a piece of her mind when Lindsay talks her out of doing it considering that Roughouse is "built like a brick". Their attention is soon turned to screams down the street where they see a bloody woman collapse to the ground. Learning where the woman came from, Jessica sprints off and uses her remaining Spider-Woman powers to gain access to the building. Inside she sees the aftermath of a massacre, and the message "Tyger is dead" scrawled on the wall in blood. Returning to Lindsay, Jessica finds that the girl is dead and tells her friend that they could be standing on the brink of a full fledged drug war.
Later at the Princess Bar, Patch, Lindsay and Jessica compare notes with each other and they decide that the key to stopping Coy from starting a gang war would be to find a way to defeat his enforcers and free Karma from whatever hold Coy has over her. As they are discussing how continued attacks would begin to effect Tyger Tiger's criminal empire, Tyger enters the room and is introduced to Lindsay and Jessica (the latter, being hostile toward the crime lord) She has come to ask Patch to accompany her to her summons to the Prince's palace, a request that Logan takes up.
Along the way the two are attacked by Roughouse and Bloodscream, who smash Tyger's car. As Roughouse beats on Logan, Tyger is attacked by Bloodscr
