They were about to part amiably, after Belkar warned Buggy Lou about the dangers that his fellow adventures represented, until Belkar saw that they had caught Mr. Scruffy for a snack.

The reference to a mutual friend on the Northern Continent may infer that Buggy Lou was the slave trader referred to by Belkar in The Prisoner Dilemma.
