|“||Stuff smaller than dust particles to our eyes can give out energy, for millions of years, to keep us alive. DNA is tiny and it contains an amazing amount of information in its double helix. It seems small things, infinitesimally small things, are needed to build the entire universe. The size of a thing has nothing to do with its power. The soul is probably small, but it has the energy to reincarnate itself.||”|

Koala looks like a small bipedal koala with fluffy round ears, big round nose and wears a black tuxedo with a pair of shoes.
Not much is known about Koala outside of the fact that during his previous life he was a hitman. This prompted him to continue his cycle of existence when he was reincarnated into a Chimera Ant, typically using guns to kill people.
Chimera Ant arc
Koala was a soldier under Meleoron's command, but disapproved of Meleoron's pacifist attitude. He generally does not take part in the war between the Hunters and Chimera Ants. After Meleoron has gone individual, he is presumably free from any duty.
13th Hunter Chairman Election arc
Koala is last seen talking with Kite, who now highly resembles the girl he killed while searching for the Queen's fodder, soon after the chairman election. It is revealed that he originally killed the girl not due to blood thirst but to save her from further torture by his fellow Chimera Ants. He's ordered by Kite to join his expedition troop and protect her as a way to compensate for what he has done as both a human and a Chimera Ant.
Abilities & Powers
As a Chimera Ant, Koala is stronger than normal humans, and probably even more powerful than average soldier ants. His exoskeleton is so durable that he only got scratched after being clubbed with a tree trunk, whereas the log broke in half. On that occasion, he also demonstrated a good sense of balance and a certain degree of strength in his legs, since he did not even stagger after the hit. Koala's fighting style revolves around his ability to spit fluids (water or liquor, it is unclear, but likely irrelevant) in a bullet-like fashion. He is very accurate, a skill he retained from his former life as a hitman. He uses a gourd as a canteen in order to always have supply on hand.
