"Hm? I just want Netero to come back to life and be Chairman once again."

— Linne Hors-d'oeuvre in "Spy"

Linne Hors-d'oeuvre (リンネ=オードブル, Rin'ne Ōdoburu) is a Double-Star Gourmet Hunter and is currently the oldest member of the Hunter Association.[2] She is also an unofficial survivor of the Dark Continent.[1]


344 - Linne Hors-d'oeuvre

Linne in her youth

Linne is an old woman of short stature. She has a round face covered in wrinkles. She has short blond hair parted in the middle and light-colored eyes, possibly due to some age-related sickness, since they were dark in her youth.[2] When she was younger, her hair was more flyaway and slightly longer, a bit ruffled at the top and worn in a cowlick.[1]


Linne appears to be a silent person. During the election, the only time she spoke she showed to be uninterested in the ballot and wished for Netero to come back to life. She still seems to be deeply attached to him.[3] In her youth, she demonstrated her zeal and courage by accompanying him to the extremely dangerous Dark Continent.[1]



The trio dwarfed by the Dark Continent

When she was young, Linne was a Hunter and a friend of Isaac Netero. At some point in her life, she joined Netero in his expedition to the Dark Continent, along with Zzigg Zoldyck.[1]


13th Hunter Chairman Election arcEdit

Linne Hors-d' oeuvre ranked at 12 in voting

Linne in 11th place

Linne is first mentioned in the First Election when she finishes in 16th place,[4] then in the Second Election she places in 13th place, sharing the spot with Biscuit Krueger,[5] and she shares 12th place with Biscuit and Cutie Beauty in the Third Election.[6] In the Forth Election, Linne finishes in 11th place and thus becomes one of the 16 candidates in the Fifth Election. It's mentioned that it has been 5 years since the last time her voice was heard.[2] In the Fifth Election, however, she places in 11th place again and does not make the top 8. When she gives her losing candidacy speech, she mentions that she'd rather have Chairman Netero come back to life and be chairman again.[3]

Dark Continent Expedition arcEdit

Linne is mentioned by Ging when he explains to the Dark Continent Exploration Team about when she, Netero, and Zzigg explored the Dark Continent and felt dwarfed by the massiveness of the creatures that inhabit the place.[1]

Abilities & PowersEdit

Linne has all the benefits granted by her status as a Double-Star Gourmet Hunter, which also denotes exceptional competence in the culinary arts.[2] Having traveled to the Dark Continent with Isaac Netero and lived to tell the tale, she likely possessed a great deal of strength and survival skills in her youth.[1]


  • In Chapter 344, her name is written as "Linnet Audoble."
