Survival Skill is the twenty-first chapter of manga series Darker than Black: Shikkoku No Hana.


As Cain recovers from the stun grenade, Captain William Perry barks at them for being too careless and orders them to leave. While Cain blasts open a door using his ability, he notes that the speed of Hei and Perry is so fast that they would only be in the way. Hei tries to break off the fight to pursue Cain's group, but Perry fires his gun at him several times. Hei manages to avoid any injuries, but loses his knife and mask. Hei notes Perry's speed and that he is reading his movements perfectly. Perry reveals that his senses have been greatly heightened by the power of the black flower and knocks Hei to the ground, boasting about his prowess. He holsters his gun and tells Hei to stand up if he wishes to continue fighting.

Meanwhile, Parcel warns Mina Kandaswamy and Sergei Vectrof about the intruders and finds the bag containing her spare ears. Mina goes to get Azusa Tsukimori, but discovers that she is gone. While informing Sergei of Azusa's disappearance, Mina is shot in the back by General Leonard Maxray. Maxray scolds Sergei for not anticipating this and then kills Mina. The general tells Sergei that the black flower exists because of the failure of the Saturn Ring.

Perry informs Hei of the death of one of his companions while they continue their fight. Perry starts to pummel the Contractor.
