Bill (ビル, Biru) is a Hunter assigned to the fourteenth Prince of the Kakin Empire, Woble Hui Guo Rou and her mother, as a bodyguard.[1]


AppearanceEdit

Bill is about as tall as Kurapika. He has down-turned eyes, a flat nose, and prominent bags under his eyes. He has messy fair hair pointing upwards. Like the other bodyguards, he wears a black suit and a tie.[1]

PersonalityEdit

Bill is a cool-headed individual, who offers his advice calmly when necessary. He is level-headed and capable of reasoning with Kurapika despite latter's occasionally blunt or even violent methods. Even if the risks turned out to be higher than expected, he is determined not to leave his job as bodyguard.[2]

BackgroundEdit

Bill along with Kurton and Sayird all at one point in time in their lives took and passed the Hunter Exam and applied on the official Kakin Empire Website to be a Bodyguard for Prince Woble, but never met with Queen Oito Hui Guo Rou to be informed about the Succession War.[1]

PlotEdit

Dark Continent Expedition arcEdit

Bill boards the Black Whale with Queen Oito, her daughter and his colleagues.[3] After Woody is found dead in the toilet, he does not say anything when Kurapika mentions Nen to the other bodyguards, and later tells him that just because the queen seems to favor him, he cannot do whatever he pleases. When more bodyguards are found dead, Kurapika points a gun at him and the other while interrogating them with the Dowsing Chain.[1] Bill replies he did not know about the succession war. He deduces the pot ceremony has bestowed parasitic type Nen on the princes. At that moment, Nen beasts invisible to everyone but the four Hunters flood the room. Bill tells Kurapika everything he knows about parasitic Nen, and declares that, in spite of the risks, he intends to keep guarding the queen and the prince. To improve cooperation, Kurapika agrees to tell Bill about his objectives. Bill then prepares to list three possible courses of actions to Oito, but is interrupted by a scream from the neighboring room. He rushes there and sees Sayird wielding a bloodied knife, Kurton at his feet and the two restrained bodyguards apparently dead. He asks him why he did that, and Sayird replies he had been asked to because he was free. When Sayird turns towards him, Bill aims his gun at him, but Kurapika insists on taking him alive and prepares to fight.[2]

While Kurapika has Sayird pinned down, he asks Bill whether Sayird is necessary to escape. Bill states that Kurton was the key agent because his ability allowed him to transform into a boat or vehicle. When asked about Sayird's Hatsu, Bill is initially reluctant to reveal it, but eventually informs Kurapika of its details. When Kurapika absorbs Sayird's aura, Bill becomes concerned about the consequences, but Kurapika reminds Bill that the individual well-being of a guard is less important than the overall mission. Following Sayird's arrest, Kurapika asks Bill about their remaining options to leave the boat. Bill lists two possible ways, one involving Beyond, the other involving Pariston.[4] He then continues his explanation about parasitic-type Nen,[5] before recommending Kurapika to use Sayird's ability to spy on the other princes; however, his suggestion is deemed impractical. Right then, Vincent arrives and kills Sandra, to Bill's shock.[6] He and Kurapika immediately shield the queen. Thanks to Kurapika's using Steal Chain on Oito, Vincent is distracted long enough for Bill to decrease the distance between them. By enhancing his guard with Nen, Bill blocks the assassin's bullets and, with Kurapika's assistance, subdues him. However, Vincent poisons himself when Oito swears she'll testify he murdered Sandra and wanted to kill everyone else. Bill attempts to make him spit out the poison, but fails. He protests when Kurapika declares he intends to hand the body over to the Kakin army, but he calms down when the latter points to the earpiece worn by Vincent.[7]

As soon as Shimano informs the group that on the other line are the Three Princes Benjamin, Zhang Lei, and Tubeppa Bill is assigned to watch over the door in case the newly arrived soldier Babimyna tries anything funny. After talking with Zhang Lei and Tubeppa, Kurapika accompanied by Oito and Woble to head out and meet with Zhang Lei in his room, Bills stays behind with Babimyna and assures Kurapika that he won't go down easily. Kurapika tells Bill if Tubeppa contacts them again, to say that the matters have been resolved and that he'll be in contact with them as soon as negotiations are finished. When Kurapika and others leave, Bill and Babimyna enter Woble's room with Bill letting Babimyna enter first.[8]

EquipmentEdit

Handgun: While working as a bodyguard, Bill carries a .22 caliber black handgun.[2]

Abilities & Powers Edit

As a Hunter, Bill has all the privileges that come with his status. He appears to be moderately skilled at hand to hand combat, closing in on Vincent with a stance that protected all his vitals and restraining him with a submission hold with Kurapika's assistance.[7]

NenEdit

Being a Hunter, Bill can use Nen. He is knowledgeable enough to recognize parasitic type Nen, which Kurapika had never heard of.[2] His Ren or Ken is strong enough to block at least four bullets shot at him from close range, although he was still lightly injured.[7]
