Loupe reasoning with Teradien

Sometime after the 5th election, Teradein, Loupe, and Bushidora try to get in contact with the groups of more than 20 Hunters they were in contact with, including the Hunters Latoon and Kenzaki. Bushidora boasts his capable abilities as Captain. When inquired about the votes from Loupe, Bushidora states anyone who's free to vote go and vote as long as Teradein makes the top 4. Although Teradein voices his concern about the prediction of where the votes will go and doesn't want to sway the election through absentees. Loupe suggests they hire a group of Temp Hunters in order to reduce the number of votes for Pariston Hill. Bushidora and Teradein both agree with the plan, unbeknownst to them that was really a clever ploy to kill off the Temp Hunters by the enemy making them absent in the next election. Loupe also contemplates that Teradein is too honest, while Bushidora is too careless. However after Bushidora and company confront the group they're massacred and Loupe reports this to Teradein.[2] After Hisoka killed Teradein, Loupe's current status is unknown.[8]
