Momoze was a young girl with delicate features and long, fair hair worn in an elaborate hairstyle.
Momoze projected the image of a calm and gentle girl. She did not appear to resent her mother's harsh words towards her or to fear for her own safety. Although she pities her mother and brother Marayam for lacking the ability of becoming Kings.
Succession Contest arcEdit
Momoze made her first appearance as all of the other Princes are introduced, and was shown stitching a cloth. After applying for the position, Momoze hired Hanzo to become her bodyguard for the trip to the Dark Continent. Some time later, she participated to the ceremony on the eve of the voyage and waved to the crowd. During the party held on the 1st deck of the ship, Momoze was seen waving to the party patrons.
Unbeknownst to her, her Guardian Spirit Beast attacked Woble's bodyguards. After the ceremony, her mother, Queen Sevanti, removed bodyguards from her escort and assigned them to her brother, Marayam. Despite Queen Sevanti's request, Nipaper and Bladge expressed their desire to stay, while Momoze did not mind and even suggested the remaining two relax in a nearby room, but they declined. While knitting, Momoze thought to herself that she pitied her mother and brother for being incapable of becoming kings. She also wondered why she felt so tired despite not doing anything, her Spirit Beast sitting behind her.
As Momoze rested in her room, one of her bodyguards planned to assassinate her. She was killed shortly afterwards, due to asphyxiation while sleeping. Hanzo suspected a clone created by a Nen user, leading to all her remaining bodyguards (including Benjamin's private soldier) being processed. By her unusual sleep schedule, Kurapika deduced her Guardian Spirit Beast was behind one of the attacks on Woble's bodyguards, and the reason it did not defend her, was she had run out of aura.
Abilities & PowersEdit
Like the rest of her siblings, Momoze has received an egg from which a Guardian Spirit Beast, a variety of Nen beast, hatched to protect her. As a parasitic-type ability, she has no control over it. The Guardian Spirit Beast is made out of aura, thus only Nen users can see and hear it. Momoze herself is unaware of its existence. The Guardian Spirit 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.
|Momoze's Guardian Spirit Beast|
|Momoze's Guardian Spirit Beast takes the appearance of an enormous mouse-like creature with jagged teeth and two circles resembling eyes on its forehead. It can phase through walls and is sentient enough to react to non-verbal responses to its questions, for example by nodding. The Nen beast will ask any target if they are "free". Should they reply "no", a miniature replica of the Nen beast will appear on their shoulder and keep pestering them until they reply affirmatively. The replica can be seen and heard only by the target, and no one else. If the target states they are "free", the Nen beast takes control of their mind by implanting a small, spider-like teddy bear in their ear and force them to kill those around them, seemingly with a preference for bodyguards. A manipulated target will respond to all questions saying that, since they were free, "it" asked them a favor. The spider-like Nen beast feeds off not Momoze's aura, but the target's. Should it be unable to do so, it leaves the host's body, freeing them from the control, and is capable of fleeing at high speed.
Due to the conditions that trigger it, this Guardian Spirit Beast can manipulate only Nen users. However, taking control of a single person puts enough strain on Momoze's stamina that she will be forced to sleep right afterwards, and the Guardian Spirit Beast will become inactive due to not having enough aura to feed off of.
- Momoze is the first of King Nasubi's children to die in the Succession War.
