Mascher (マッシュル, Masshuru) is a Temp Hunter[1] and one of the expedition team members affiliated with Beyond Netero.[2]

AppearanceEdit

Mascher is a fat man of average height. He has fair hair worn in a bowl cut. His head is rather egg-shaped, with round eyes, a small nose and freckles. He has a double chin. His standard outfit is comprised of a military jacket with a crew neck, a dark shirt underneath, pants with round dark spots at the height of the knee and light boots.

PersonalityEdit

Although introduced as aggressive due to his threat to Ging, Mascher is actually a sensible person, as seen when weighing the pros and cons of the former's offer. It is later revealed he was prepared to fight only because he feared Ging intended only to cause trouble for the sake of it. Eventually, he ends up befriending and admiring him.[3] While not a sore loser, Mascher was left depressed by the Double Star Hunter's skills at Ibokuri.[4]

PlotEdit

Dark Continent Expedition arcEdit

344 - Ging with the expedition team

Ging confronts Pariston

Mascher is first seen in room with Beyond Netero and his nine other followers.[2] Ging Freecss himself later arrives in the lair of Beyond's expedition team,[5] and after one of the expedition team members challenge Ging, Pariston interrupts and confirms that he is ranked number two in the team. Ging dismisses it and declares that he will be number two henceforth[6] and thinking that he can cause troubles Mascher alongside Marion prepare to fight him, but stops after Ging says that he's really there to help them and that he will pay them the double of what Beyond paid them. He along with Curly and the cook later listens to a lecture given by Ging about the previous expeditions to the Dark Continent and what the goals were for the respective expeditions and the outcomes of them. Upon the return of the members who thought abandoned them after he accepted Ging's money Mascher is surprised by by this. And after Curly questions Ging about different places unknown to the V5, Mascher is shocked to hear by Ging that since the V5 only now have the copy of the Journey to the New World East book, the West book may still being written by Don Freecss.[7]

Mascher with the other expedition members discuss the problem with Ging wanting to become the 2nd and when Ging approaches them, Mascher explains to Ging they have no problem with Ging becoming the 2nd in command, but have divided into 2 groups those who will accept and not accept his money. And to avoid further conflict they'll all refuse to listen to any of Ging's commands. He also mentions that they all have been hired through Pariston as he may have suspected. Ging however baffles them all with his deduction that they're all specialists in various fields with skills necessary for them to manage get to and survive within the Dark Continent. Sometime after the confrontation with Ging, Mascher could be seen looking in on Ging talking with Curly.[1]

A month later after Ging becomes the 2nd, he displays his Ikoburi skills, which makes Mascher wince. And after the whole fiasco with Muherr's comrades trying to get Ging to reveals his abilities by staging an attack, Muherr inquires Mascher's opinion on Ging. He answers that initially concerned that Ging may try and stir up trouble, but after listening to his reasons for wanting to go to the Dark Continent and his respect for Netero he supposedly pardoned them, but still he felt Ging was trying to manipulate them. In spite of all that, he and Marione have prepared for chaotic situations that may occur and felt with Ging's merits his help would be invaluable. During Muherr's and Golem's argument with each other Mascher feels he's to blame for it.[3]

Abilities & PowersEdit

Being a member of Beyond's party, Mascher is a specialist in a certain field. His skills are such that they allowed him to join the expedition to the Dark Continent, which he presumably can handle. When he prepared to attack Ging, Mascher assumed a combat stance, implying he might be a martial artist. Furthermore, on that occasion, he was seen casting three shadows (one on the ground and two behind his back); it is currently unknown if this is a Nen ability or just a drawing effect.
