Curly (クルリ, Kururi) is a Temp Hunter[2] and one of the Dark Continent Expedition Team members affiliated with Beyond Netero.[3]


Curly has long hair and his eyes are obscured with his swirl-tinted glasses.


Curly is a polite, calm and an emotionally sensitive person whom is also an intelligent individual, possessing vast knowledge about ancient language and in modern and ancient geography. He is loquacious, and constantly eager to share and increase his knowledge and tends to always explain things even when people aren't interested. Every time he asks to speak but is not allowed or somebody does not care about his explanations, he gets depressed.[4]


Sometime before joining Beyond's Dark Continent Expedition Team, Curly became a professor at Varvard University.[1]


Dark Continent Expedition arcEdit

342 - Ging and Expedition Team

Curly watches as Ging Freecss presents himself as number two in the team

Curly is first seen in a room with Beyond Netero and his nine other followers. When Beyond asks what they need to get to the Dark Continent without being impeded by the V5, Curly starts to list all the numerous passages to get approved by the V5 only for Beyond to yell at him that he does not care.[3] Ging himself later arrives in the lair of Beyond's Expedition Team, and after Usamen challenges Ging, Pariston interrupts and confirms that he is ranked number two in the team. Ging dismisses it and declares that he will be number two henceforth and that he will pay them double of what Beyond paid them.[5]

Curly is not interested in the money, but Ging is incredibly obstinate, so they have various contests about ancient languages. After being continuously defeated, he surrenders, and accepts Ging's money and donates it to the Scholarship Fund, and, like the rest of Beyond's team, he starts to like Ging and trusts him.[1]

Abilities & PowersEdit

Curly is very knowledgeable in a wide range of subjects, including ancient tongues (although Ging beat him every time they had a contest). In fact, he is a professor at Varvard University. He also has all the benefits granted by his status as a Hunter.


His specific Nen abilities are not revealed, though Ging deduces that Curly is a specialist in some field; his abilities, or at least one of them, must have been scouted to be able to deal with the dangers of the Dark Continent. As a Hunter, he is able to use Nen.


  • Varvard University (バーバード()(だい)()()()()()()()(), Bābādo-dai) is probably derived from Harvard University (ハーバード()(だい)(がく)()()()()()()(), Hābādo Daigaku).
