Kurton (カートン, Kāton) was a Pro Hunter assigned to the fourteenth prince of the Kakin Empire, Woble Hui Guo Rou, and her mother, the eighth queen, as Royal Bodyguard.[1]


Kurton had short spiky hair and thick eyebrows. As a Royal Bodyguard, he wore a black suit and a tie.[1]


Kurton at one point in time in his life took and passed the Hunter Exam and applied on the official Kakin Empire Website to be a bodyguard for Prince Woble, but never met with Queen Oito Hui Guo Rou to be informed about the Succession War.[1]


Succession Contest arcEdit

When Kurapika inquires about why he, Sayird, and Bill didn't speak up about how Woody died due to Nen circumstances. Sayird claimed it had nothing to do with protecting the prince, while Kurton believes it's the Kakin Army's responsibility and would cause trouble with them if they intervened. Kurapika further questions if they were interviewed by Queen Oito Hui Guo Rou when they applied for the position on the Kakin Empire website, but they claim they haven't. This leads Kurapika to believe that they haven't been informed of the succession war. Later four more bodyguards appear dead. Taking the initiative, Kurapika pulls out a pistol, while summoning his Dowsing Chain and uses them to interrogate the remaining 5 bodyguards and staff.[1]

He first questions the staff about if they had any knowledge about the Succession War. The staff claim they haven't, but two out of the five remaining bodyguards did know about it, but not Kurton and his colleagues. The traitorous bodyguards are restrained on separate chairs and they explain what they knew about the Succession War. Immediately after the explanation the entire room becomes filled with Guardian Spirit Beasts. Bill and Kurapika along with Queen Oito and Prince Woble head into a different room to discuss the matters at hand, while Sayird and Kurton watch over the other queens' spies. With the Guardian Spirit Beasts gone, Kurton is relieved, although unbeknownst to him, the Guardian Spirit Beasts that pestered Sayird before stands on his shoulder continuing to pester him.[2] Not long afterwards, Sayird says he is "free" to one of the Guardian Spirit Beasts,[3] which results in him being manipulated into stabbing to death the restrained bodyguards and Kurton.[2]

As soon as Sayird is pinned down by Kurapika, he asks Bill if Sayird is one of the people needed to escape off the ship. Bill details that Kurton was the one most necessary, as he was a Conjurer that was able to turn himself into either a boat or vehicle that ran on aura.[3]

Abilities & PowersEdit

As a Hunter, Kurton had all the benefits granted by his status. He was easily killed by Sayird, while the latter was controlled by Prince Momoze's Guardian Spirit Beast.[3]


Kurton was a Conjurer. His Hatsu ability was of the symbiotic type and it allowed him to turn his body into a boat or car that could fit up to five passengers and was fueled by their aura.[3]


  • His original Japanese name, カートン (Kāton), is also a noun that means "carton", possibly a reference to his unseen Hatsu ability and the way it happens or the shape it takes.
