Imori is a tall and slim young man, with light brown hair and black eyes. He has sharp markings down both of his eyes. His clothing consists of a blue and white cap, a light blue turtleneck sweater, long dark blue jeans (brown in the 1999 adaptation) and sneakers.

PersonalityEdit

Imori is cowardly, not daring to attack Killua, whom he believed to be a normal child, without his brothers, and limiting himself to stalking him. On that occasion, he attempted to convince himself that his refusal to face Killua in open combat was a tactic, and lied to his brothers as well in an attempt to save his image. When his brothers are present, he is confident to the point of being arrogant, and also prone to mocking others and violence.[4]

BackgroundEdit

According to Tonpa, Imori and his brothers have attempted the Hunter Exams multiple times before the 287th session, improving their teamwork each time.[5]

Imori is one of the first 18 applicants to clear the Trick Tower, and examines the body of an applicant who dies right after completing the trial.[9] Since he was the 15th to complete the previous phase, Imori is the 15th applicant to disembark on Zevil Island.[10] He stalks stalks Killua in order to claim his badge, but hesitates to attack him before his brothers return. When, on the second day, Killua addresses him, Imori contemplates running, but his brothers arrive before Killua reaches him. Imori thus kicks Killua, who stands back up uninjured and with Imori's badge in his hand. The three brothers join forces against the assassin, who takes Amori hostage as well as the latter's and Umori's badges. Killua then throws two of the brothers' badges into the woods, failing the trio.[4]
