Conan, fleeing from the soldiers of Messantia, manages to leap on a boat just pulling out of Messantia's wharf. After telling his story to the captain, Tito, he joins the crew, which is heading south. They sail past the suspicious coast of Shem, the dark one of Stygia, the rocky one of Kush and arrive at the coast of the Black Kingdoms. The only ship Tito fears is the Tigress, ship of Belit, Queen of the Black Coast. Unfortunately, that's just who they run in to, and although Conan makes a good accounting of himself in the battle, the pirates swiftly overcome Conan's crew, and Tito is killed. Belit is impressed with the barbarian, though, and gives him a chance to prove himself against her best warrior, Odongo, who happens to be the man who killed Tito. They fight, Conan gets the upper hand and throws Odongo to the sharks. Belit makes Conan her companion, and her crew immediately accepts him as their master. That night, Belit makes it official...
