Coventoba (コベントバ, Kobentoba) is a high-ranking soldier in the Royal Army of the Kakin Empire, and one of the personal soldiers of Prince Benjamin.[1] He is now among Prince Zhang Lei's bodyguards under direct orders from Prince Benjamin.[2]


Coventoba has a shaven head and prominent cheek bones. He wears the standard Kakin military attire of zipper jacket, pants, and dark combat boots. He wears an earpiece in his left ear.


Coventoba is said to be really moody, by Slakka.[3]


As one of the First Prince's soldiers, Coventoba graduated from Kakin's Royal Military Academy and became a part of his army.[4]


Succession Contest arcEdit

Coventoba is among the other thirteen soldiers working under Prince Benjamin that is present during Balsamilco's explanation before the journey's start.[1]

Later, Prince Benjamin orders his fourteen soldiers to both act as bodyguards and spies to all the other princes, and to report any information regarding the Princes Guardian Spirit Beasts and the Hunters abilities. Coventoba becomes the Third Prince Zhang Lei's bodyguard,[2] along with Slakka, Queen Duazul's soldier. During Prince Zhang Lei's meeting with Queen Oito, Prince Woble, and Kurapika, Coventoba and Slakka are both present.[5] Immediately after the meeting, Coventoba informs Slakka to go with Kurapika and his group as it's Queen Unma's orders, much to Slakka's dismay.[3]

The following day, while Prince Zhang Lei is having dinner, a coin drops to the floor. He initially believes it to belong to one of his bodyguards, but they tell him it just appeared out of thin air. Coventoba picks it up and hands it to the prince, who examines it, without telling him it was the work of his Guardian Spirit Beast, which had also produced a coin, currently in the soldier's pocket, the day before.[6] The next day Prince Zhang Lei asks him about the coins, and Coventoba replies that as a conjured item, it either replicates the function of the real thing or has some supernatural effect; since no coin like that seems to exist, the soldier speculates it has the latter power.[7]

Abilities & PowersEdit

Coventoba has received military training.[2]


Coventoba is a Nen user, although his superior Balsamilco believes him to be less skilled than Hunters in that regard.[8]
