Cluck (クルック, Kurukku) is a Botanical Hunter and a member of the Zodiacs with the codename "Chicken" (酉, Tori). She is also part of the Biology Division, created in preparation for the voyage to the Dark Continent.
Cluck is a slim woman with dark blue hair who wears a dark blue novelty bra and mini pants. Cluck also wears a pair of dark blue gloves decorated with feather accessories and knee high boots of similar color. Her outfit is decorated with blue and white feather accessories to represent her codename, which includes mini wings on her back. During the voyage to the Dark Continent, she is seen wearing a dark strapless dress with longer gloves that reach beyond her elbows.
Cluck is short-tempered and direct, but not unreasonable. When enraged, she tends to repeat what she says.
13th Hunter Chairman Election arc
After Netero's death Cluck, alongside the others Zodiacs, is called to vote for a new Hunter Association Chairman. She and the other Zodiacs are hostile against Pariston, especially after he proposes himself as the new Chairman. She is also forced to follow Ging's rules to elect the new Chairman and thanks to her ability she is the one who sends the voting form to every single Hunter. She then follows the election as a viewer and like everyone, gets shocked when Pariston leaves the position of Chairman of the Hunter Association, making Cheadle Yorkshire the new chairman.
Dark Continent Expedition arc
During a meeting with the Zodiacs, Cluck watches a video of the appearance of Beyond Netero and his claim to be Isaac Netero's son. Later, it is revealed that the late Netero left a video that explains that they need to launch an expedition to the Dark Continent to beat Beyond's own expedition. The Zodiacs move on to discuss their plans of action. Cluck is seen getting impatient and just wanted the group to decide what to do. The discussion was put on hold when Beyond Netero himself called. When the Zodiacs meet him in person he tells then to contact V5 and let them know they captured him. He then proposes a "give and take" with them. The nine Hunters witness Cheadle and Beyond's following conversation from outside the cell. Later, Cluck is present when Beyond signs the contract with the terms the Hunters Association has set.
Cheadle summons a meeting to introduce the new Boar and Rat, and she starts explaining about the V6, the Five Great Calamities, the difficulty of the mission, which is A, whereas the Chimera Ants were ranked B, and asks if anyone has any questions. Kurapika raises his hand and asks about how many infiltrators on Netero's side that the Zodiacs have managed to identify, much to everyone's shock. However, Mizaistom quickly asks Kurapika to talk about this outside the meeting room where Mizaistom explains to Kurapika about the situation and asks him to keep his theory to himself for the time being. The Zodiacs continues to sum up their preparations for the journey, with Cluck commenting that intelligence and vegetation collecting will begin upon landing. She is assigned to the Biology Division.
When Mizaistom calls a new meeting, Cluck is left flabbergasted by the announcement that a spy is likely to be hiding among the Zodiacs. Like the others, she agrees to reveal his powers. However, unbeknownst to her, Kurapika is using his dowsing to determine who is lying, and she is revealed to be innocent.
Abilities & Powers
Being one of the Zodiacs, Cluck is one of the best Hunters. Her authority in the Hunters Association is inferior only to that of Cheadle. Although her powers were only used to deliver messages, she is likely to be strong in combat, as the Zodiacs were also sparring partners of Netero.
Cluck's Nen abilities have yet to be fully revealed, but she demonstrated to be capable of controlling pigeons, if not other birds as well. She must be very proficient in Nen, since she used them to deliver communications to every Hunter, making it more than one six hundred messengers. Giving what little is known about her ability, it seems as though at least this skill belongs to the Manipulation type, as the other characters could control living beings fell in this category (Squala manipulated a pack of dogs and Baise whomever she kissed).
- Cluck's name possibly originates from the word "Kurukku", which is the Japanese onomatopoeia for the sound pigeons make, or it could be from the sound chickens make in many languages, which may also be spelled "cluck".
- Cluck shares the same voice actor as Gon Freecss in the 2011 anime.
