AppearanceEdit

Assassin B's 2011 anime design

Assassin B dressed himself in traditional garbs, which would highly contrast his trendy hairstyle. He had crimson hair, which he would shave the left side in favor of a tattoo on the left side of his head, while keeping the hair on the right side long and tied at the front to cover the right side of his face entirely. He also had additional tattoos on his left eye and cheek, though it is unclear if he had similar tattoos around his other eye as the right side of his face was never seen.

PersonalityEdit

A man of few words, very little is known about Assassin B. According to Kurapika, he together with Assassin A were the only 2 unfazed by the Zoldyck's in the meeting between assassins hired by the Ten Dons. He also agreed with Assassin A, and insisted the belief that since assassins all possess different styles, they should work by themselves.[1]

In the 2011 anime adaptation, he also showed a side of confidence during his short clash with Chrollo.[2]

PlotEdit

Yorknew City arcEdit

Assassin B is one of the assassins hired by the Ten Dons to take care of the Phantom Troupe.[1] He is presumably killed some time after setting out to hunt his target, as speculated by Zeno.[3]

Assassin B's fate is only depicted in the anime adaptation. In the 2011 anime, in the middle of the commotion, he finds Chrollo and challenges him. The two individuals clash for an instant, with Assassin B emerging with a smirk on his face, believing he has struck down the infamous thief, but collapses immediately after and revealing a fatal wound inflicted by a pen stabbed in the back of his head. Chrollo, uninjured, then leaves the scene and leaving the assassin's body behind.[2]

EquipmentEdit

While never showcased in the manga, in the 2011 anime adaptation Assassin B seemed to prefer the use of traditional weaponry and sported a pole-axe that would complement his dressing preference. Since he brought it with him to hunt for Chrollo, it is likely that he was proficient with it.[2]

Abilities & PowersEdit

Assassin B Dies

He is considered a powerful warrior who specializes in murder. He is one of the two professionals hired by the Ten Mafia Dons whom Kurapika deemed talented enough to rise one day to Silva's and Zeno's level, the other being Assassin A. Due to Kurapika's comment about his aura and to Assassin A, whom he was compared to, being a Nen user, he is likely capable of using Nen.

However, in the 2011 anime, he was killed by Chrollo with only a pen and without even realizing he had been struck, believing he had cut down his foe instead. Same in the anime, he was depicted as a pole-axe user and likely proficient with it to certain extent.
