Luzurus Hui Guo Rou (ルズールス=ホイコーロ, Ruzūrusu Hoikōro) is the Seventh Prince of the Kakin Empire and the son of his father's second wife, Duazul.[1] He is also in league with the Cha-R Family, one of the three great Mafia families of the Kakin Empire.[2]


Luzurus is a thin man with a long nose and a pointy chin. He also has some stubble. Unlike his full-siblings, who all have hair in sharp, curving strands, Luzurus' hair seems to curl in two puffs at the side. It is fair in color.[1] He appears clean shaven when he presents for the banquet held in the Black Whale dining hall.[3]


Not much is known about Luzurus' personality, but his elder brother Tserriednich thinks of him as a moron. An example of that is when Luzurus sent his soldiers to take the Hunter Exam with assassination on their minds, without taking the time to think that there could be the possibility of lie detectors being used during the Hunter Exam. However, given Tserriednich's own pride on his own intellect and his low opinion on those he considers inferior to his, this is somewhat questionable.[4] He is level-headed and thoughtful as he doesn't at all alarmed on learning the existence of his own Guardian Spirit Beast and Nen.[5] He seems to have a caring side as well as he plans to use the healthy drug, Clean Leaf to rehabilitate drug addicts.[6]


Dark Continent Expedition arcEdit

Luzurus is briefly mentioned by Prince Tserriednich and his head Bodyguard Theta, that Luzurus' bodyguards failed to pass the recent Hunter Exam, due to a lie detector sensing their murderous motives.[4]

Succession Contest arcEdit

Luzurus is officially introduced in a room full of various kinds of bottles fuming smoke, while he smokes from a hookah.[1] After applying for the position, Luzurus hires Basho to become his bodyguard for the trip to the Dark Continent.[7] Sometime later, he participates to the ceremony on the eve of the voyage and appears disinterested by the event and appears in the dinner banquet held later.[3]

Beyond Netero and the princes of Kakin Empire

Later, he is informed about Nen and his Guardian Spirit Beast. Luzurus shows no interest in learning Nen, due to the extensive time required to master it. Luzurus instructs his bodyguards to constantly watch over him as he plots to target Prince Tubeppa, his biological older sibling, as his first victim.[5] Luzurus and Basho both smoke a "Clean Leaf" recipe. Basho claims that one of his friends who smoked the substance became healthier after using it. Luzurus thinks of using the recipe to help rehabilitate drug addicts, but the First Prince Benjamin forbids it as drug problems should be handled by the military, even though he lost a friend due to a fatal drug overdose. He then inquires if it's possible to release the recipe to the public and Basho claims it's alright, but becoming king would be the fastest way possible, but Luzurus doesn't think it's that simple.[6]

Luzurus agrees to send his bodyguards to learn Nen under Kurapika.[8] He sends Satobi to learn Nen.[9]

Abilities & PowersEdit

As a Prince of Kakin, Luzurus holds significant political power and wealth, although not on the level of the elder princes.[5]

Guardian Spirit BeastEdit

Chap 375 - Luzurus and Guardian Spirit Beast

Luzurus' Guardian Spirit Beast

Like the rest of his siblings, Luzurus received an egg from which a Guardian Spirit Beast hatched to protect him.[1] Since it is a parasitic-type ability, he has no control over it. The Nen beast is subjected to two rule-like instincts: it is unable to fight other Guardian Spirit Beasts as well as to directly attack the host of one.[5]

It takes the appearance of a giant centipede-like creature. It is a Conjurer that makes use of pseudo-coercive Manipulation. It has the ability to set traps by materializing whatever the target desires as bait. When the target satiates their desire, the trap is sprung and the ability activated.[10]
