The Hard Goodbye
Painted Cop was a Basin City Police Department captain with tribal tattoos on his face. He arrived on a chopper at the Farm with a squad of armed police to kill or capture Marv while they were escaping the basement..Seeing them, Lucille subdued Marv and attempted to surrender him so that he wouldn't get anyone else killed, and she was shot for her trouble by the Painted Cop.
Marv wiped out the entire squad in vengeance as the Painted Cop in vain shot him and missed all the time, until and faced off against an ammo-less Painted Cop.
Marv interrogated him after showing him 'all those pieces of himself', before confirming the name Marv knew all along: Roark.
Then Marv murders him with a hatchet and takes possession of his 'damn fine coat'.
Ryan Rutledge played him in the film.
