Goreinu is a man with spiky black hair that has a muscular build.
At first, he is wary of joining forces with children, and only grows more apprehensive with the introduction of a naked Hisoka to the mix, but he sticks it out. He later calls Killua a friend and saying that he would give them the Breath of Archangel (G.I card) for free if it was used to heal Killua rather than Genthru, the Bomber. When Killua objects that his own crimes are debatably worse than Genthru's, Goreinu admits that his actions are based on feelings rather than logic.
At one point during his life he completed the Hunter Exam and became a Hunter.

Moments after Gon enters the game, Goreinu enters the game from the Greed Island Entrance and notices a presence spying on him.

As the meeting progresses Asta, Yabibi, and Goreinu trade useful information about the game with Gon.

This new information leads the group to a locale bar inhabited by 3 pirates, the biggest of the three Bopobo challenges the group to a Sumo match promising to lead them to Razor if one of them manages to beat him. Ultimately after Zeho and Gon lose to Bopobo, Killua manages to win against the pirate, must to his frustration. The 3 pirates then lead the group to Razor's Lighthouse where he and his comrades reside who challenges the group to a series of duels, but they lose them all and are kicked out of the lighthouse. Convinced the Bomb Devils have no way of achieving the Patch of Shore card, the group disbands, but Goreinu teams up with Gon, Killua, and Biscuit in order to find more players that are capable enough to challenge Razor and his band of pirates again.
At a restaurant the group discuss what players they recruit and after Gon checks his binders and spots the name Chrollo Lucilfer. Outside Gon uses an Accompany card to lead them to "Chrollo", but surprisingly they confront Hisoka bathing nude in a lake. Perplexed if the nude person is Chrollo, though Gon reveals he's not and Hisoka's true name. Although Goreinu was against it, Hisoka joins the team. As the group heads to the town of the Aiai, Goreinu talks with Hisoka and when they finally arrive at their destination, he bumps into a woman and apologizes to her, but Hisoka claims he should have argued with her. Learning that Tsezguerra's name was in Hisoka's binder, Goreinu claims it'd be best to recruit Tsezguerra, but also have a insurance plan laid out in case he beats the game before them.
Outside the City of Aiai the group uses another Accompany card to reach Tsezguerra with his comrades and Goreinu negotiates a deal with him and he accepts. Goreinu then explains the situation at hand to Tsezguerra and after the boys test Tsezguerra's Nen; Goreinu informs him and his comrades about Razor's duels and the group then decide on which respective duel they'll challenge. A week passes by and within that time they all practice within their respective duels and recruit 6 other players to make an even 15 players. The group return to Razor's Lighthouse and as the group win their duels, Bopobo tries to stage a mutiny, but is killed by Razor.
With Bopobo dealt with, Razor declares his duel to be Dodgeball and that it will take 8 players to play the game. He then emits 7 Devils labeled 1-7 on their hats. After Barry and Goreinu confirms the rules about the game, Gon confronts Razor on why he killed Bopobo, and he explains he committed a series of crimes before his imprisonment there. Tsezguerra then reveals that the game Greed Island takes place in the real world surprising Gon and group. Hearing this Gon inquires Razor about his father Ging, to which Goreinu has no clue who he is and learning Gon's true identity Razor releases a malicious aura causing the players they recruited to flee. Rodriot tries to stop them, but Goreinu claim's they'll be fine, then emitting his Hatsu Alabaster and Obsidian Sages. The game commences with the Alabaster Sage on standby and Killua catches and passes the ball to Goreinu.
Wasting no time Goreinu takes out the 4th and 5th Devils. He then throws the ball towards Razor, who easily catches it and throws it back at him, but switches place with his Alabaster Sage whose head bursts on impact. Razor compliments Goreinu's rebound as Biscuit notes that the way the Alabaster Sage head burst was how Goreinu mentally interpreted getting struck with the ball. Tsezguerra contemplates that after experiencing such a traumatic situation he's out of commission, therefor useless. Killua clarifies with the referee Devil #0 if the Alabaster Sage is out and not Goreinu and the referee confirms it. In reserves area, Goreinu becomes anxious feeling all maybe lost.
In the second round of the game Goreinu returns to the game and claims he's not one to hold grudges, he wants to redeem himself against Razor and does so by getting Razor out by having his Obsidian Sage switch places with Razor as he throws the ball. This endeavor was proven futile as Devil #2 catches the ball by preforming some aerobics with the help from Devil #13. Devil #2 then passes the ball to Devil #13, who spikes the ball on Goreinu's face rendering him unconscious and unable to summon his Sages for the rest of the game.

He negotiates that if Tsezguerra will give them the Patch of Shore card by the entrance of Masadora he'll spare their lives and also informs them that he's killed everyone that attended Kazsule's meeting. Enraged by learning this Gon challenges Genthru.
With the situation at hand Tsezguerra and his comrades plan to stall Genthru for 3 weeks with Goreinu assisting them. Afterward, Goreinu spies on the Bomb Devils as they attack and sometimes kill innocent players for their Accompany and Magnetic Force (G.I card)s. Goreinu reports his findings to Tsezguerra and claims if someone didn't warn him about the Bomb Devils actions, he'd be dead as well. Catching wind of Tsezguerra's plan the Bomb Devils chase after Tsezguerra and his group, but it's later revealed by Goreinu that the Sub and Bara that are chasing them are fake and the real ones are watching by the card shop in Masadora to ambush him. Sometime after Tsezguerra leaves the game, Goreinu contacts Killua and fills him in while spying on the Bomb Devils who await for Tsezguerra and his comrades return.
It's then learned that Tsezguerra and comrades won't be returning to the game and he has all of their important cards within his binder and 30 of the 96 cards are Fake. Goreinu admits he's ashamed that he can't help fight Genthru, but Killua understands and asks if he'll come and pick up the promised card, but says he'll wait until they've beaten Genthru. The Bomb Devils then transport themselves back to Masadora most likely to obtain more cards, as Goreinu reports and inquires if Killua's hands are better, which he replies they are. Afterwards after Gon and company defeat the Bomb Devils, Goreinu regroups with them and upon hearing the situation voices his disapproval of healing the Bomb Devils with a Breath of Archangel (G.I card). Killua and Goreinu argue with one another about healing Genthru and Biscuit and Gon join in too.

This shocks Gon and group as Goreinu details the bounty was canceled, which is why Tsezguerra and his group refuse to play the game any longer. And because the bounty was canceled 70% of the bounty will be paid and from the percentage Goreinu will take 4 billion and divide it amongst the group. Biscuit praises Goreinu for his kind gesture, but Goreinu restates while he will give the group the all of the cards in his possession, only if they manage to beat the game and they agree to it. With Gon's binder filled with nearly every imposed slot card in his binder; Eeta announces a quiz game will be held and the prize to it is the final imposed slot card Ruler's Blessing (G.I card). Immediately a bunch of players surround Gon and his group.
The players claim to mean no animosity, explain one of them wins the Quiz they'll sell the final card to him, but in the end Gon wins. The Bellam brothers Zetsk and Gashta then arrive and challenge Gon and Killua for all of their cards, concerning Goreinu about the boy's safety, but they easily manage to beat them.

Abilities & Powers
Goreinu is a capable Nen user, since he passed Battera's test. Razor considered him stronger than the members of Tsezguerra's team with the exception of Tsezguerra himself. He also has some degree of intelligence and leadership skills, as he demonstrated during the dodgeball match against Razor. Although he was greatly scared by the latter's power, he was still able to focus on the ball, reflect on the best solution and use a Nen ability to move out of danger, showing a good reactions, quick thinking and mental fortitude. He has enough confidence in his physical and combat skills to volunteer for the wrestling competition against one of Razor's pirates.
Goreinu is a Manipulator. He can direct the Nen beasts he emits with apparent ease, and employ their special powers to gain tactical advantage with the right timing, though the Nen beasts act by Goreinu's direct command rather than automatically. Goreinu's Hatsu ability has apparently earned Razor's praises, who states that it is interesting and he should use it wisely. Goreinu can also pour his aura into an object, such as a ball, with Shu and launch it at his opponents by throwing, although he is nowhere near as proficient as Razor in it. It is unknown whether or not he can summon any other Nen beasts or whether he can summon more than two at a time.
