Personality Edit

Geretta is shrewd and cautious about everything and is not shy of giving his opponents or other people words of advice even if they don't ask for them.[2] However, this does not mean he will not commend them for feats that he finds impressive, as shown with how he praised Gon for his strategy in trying to take Hisoka's badge.

Plot Edit

Hunter Exam arc Edit

Geretta first phase of the exam

Geretta is first introduced by Tonpa who says he's a hunter that can capture any kind of beast or animal with his blowgun.[1] Although exhausted from the long distance run, Geretta manages to pass the 1st phase of the Hunter Exam, and is seen standing close to the Amori Brothers, near the site of the 2nd phase of the exam.[3] After passing the 1st part of the 2nd Phase of the Hunter Exam, Geretta is left clueless along with nearly all of the other examinees who have no clue what Sushi is.[4] However while never seen like the other examinees, he fails to make a good enough Sushi to pass the test and fails, but with the other examinees is given a second chance by making a boiled egg, from the Spider-Eagle. After retrieving and boiling the egg he tries it and is amazed by it's delicious taste.[5]

At the site of the 3rd Phase the Trick Tower; Geretta uses his blowgun to check the floor for any suspicious tiles and soon finds a way to enter the tower.[6] Near the end of the 3rd phase of the exam Geretta is shown to be one of the 24 people to pass the 3rd Phase of the exam.[7] With the 4th Phase being a man hunt on Zevil Island, Geretta stalks his target Gon and praises the him for nearly noticing his presence.[8] During the 4th phase of the Hunter Exam, after patiently waiting, Geretta finally attacks Gon with his blow dart and paralyzing him. He leaves after taking both Gon and Hisoka's number badges, but is beheaded by Hisoka shortly afterwards.[2]

EquipmentEdit

Blowgun: Geretta's primary weapon is a blowgun he loads with paralysing darts. According to Hisoka, the chemical is a muscle relaxant that would normally wear off in ten days, although Gon was able to move mere minutes after it took effect.[2]

Nightstick: Tonpa stated that Geretta is very proficient with nightsticks, implying he carried at least one when he first attempted to pass the Hunter Exam.[1]

Abilities & PowersEdit

Geretta was a highly skilled candidate during the Hunter Exam, having reached the third phase.[7] Since he passed the first phase, he is sure to have above-average stamina. He is remarkably accurate with his blowgun, which he demonstrated when he hit Gon, a notoriously fast runner, in the neck at night.[2] Despite the latter's sharp senses, Geretta was able to stalk him for days completely undetected, with Gon noticing his presence only once at the start of the phase, and quickly brushing it off as a wrong impression. On that occasion, he demonstrated to be considerably fast and agile, avoiding the kid's gaze and quickly hiding amidst branches.[8]
