2011 | 1999 | Manga
In the 2011 anime, Neon has blue hair tied back with a yellow bow, and has a rather petite figure. She wears a pink and red striped top and a plain white dress, as well as very large purple shoes. In the 1999 version, she has pink hair with a pink and white dress. When she sneaks into the underground auction, she wears a plain night gown and large sandals.
Neon is a spoiled and self-centered young lady. She throws tantrums whenever she doesn't get things her way.She is shown to be childlike in the way she lacks empathy for others. However, she first shows empathy towards another when her hand maid Eliza is in grief. Although being pampered and apathetic, Neon's traits are actually a product of childlike innocence-and an inability to comprehend emotions beyond what a child can understand despite being sixteen years old. She is shown to be otherwise good natured. Neon is also fond of collecting human body parts, which is the main reason why the Nostrade family had to attend the Southernpiece Auction in Yorknew City.
Yorknew City arcEdit
Dalzollene introduces the newly recruited bodyguards to Neon within her room. On August 31st Neon is picked up from the Ringon Airport and is escorted to Yorknew City by her bodyguards. On the way to Yorknew City, Dalzollene presents Neon with her work for September initially she refuses to do them as there's too many, but negotiates a deal with her Father and uses her Hatsu Lovely Ghost Writer to complete her work for September. That night at Hotel Beitacle, Dalzollene contacts Light to inform him about his daughter's most recent fortunes. That night while Dalzollene talks with Light, Neon enjoys a game of cards with her attendees. Upon learning she can't attend the Underground Auction, she has a giant tantrum, but later becomes completely exhausted from her tantrum and passes out.
At 2 A.M. on September 2nd, (Sometime after Uvogin escapes) Kurapika and Squala awaken Neon and inform her of the current situation. Neon however shows no interest of what occurred and cares more for the Queen of Colco Mummy she wanted at the Auction and wants to know when the next auction will be held. Kurapika assures her the auction items are safe and the time when the Auction will be held is unknown. Neon suggests they contact her Father, but it's decided by the bodyguards the one who talks with Light will become the new Head Bodyguard and Kurapika is decided to be it. Neon contacts her Father and briefly talks with him and hands the phone to Kurapika who updates him on the situation. Finished talking with Light, Kurapika informs Neon her Father will arrive the following night, but has ordered him to keep her confined in her room, which upsets her.
On September 3rd after hearing the current situation Light orders Neon to be sent home. Neon pouts over it as well as the auction being canceled. She changes her mood though after being assured the items will be up for auction next year. Melody and Basho are assigned to guard Neon, while she's being escorted back to their Mansion and has Neon return to her room to pack her things. That afternoon after a shopping spree in Ringon Airport Neon uses the restroom, but when checked on by her attendant Eliza for taking a long time it's revealed she disappeared. Out of sight of her bodyguards and attendees she disposes her wig and curses her father, while storming out of the airport as an illusive man carrying a photo of her watches her.
Police reports from a checkpoint in Yorknew city describe Neon trying to go through it, but fails and flees in a cab. Within the cab Neon thanks her savior the man whom is Chrollo welcomes her. The two soon enjoy a drink in the Cemetery Building and Chrollo mentions that Neon is a Fortune teller, Neon confirms it and has him fill out a piece of paper with some prerequisites and writes his fortune as Chrollo carefully observes it all. Finished writing the fortune she hands it over to Chrollo who upon reading it cries. Chrollo then inquires if Neon believes in the afterlife, but claims she doesn't due to a quote by the Galactic Grandma who inspired her to become a fortune teller. The two continue talking while taking a walk through the building until. Chrollo mentions a lost comrade of his and swiftly knocks Neon unconscious. Putting up an act Chrollo, manages to get the Mafioso Bean to get an ambulance for her.
Light and Kurapika soon arrive in the Cemetery Building and they immediately go to the room the unconscious Neon is in. In the room Kurapika checks the Hunter Association website and finds out Neon's picture along with the rest of the Nostrade bodyguards aside from Melody and himself are on there. Kurapika theorizes that the person who came in contact with Neon used the website to figure out what she looked like. Furious, Light proclaims he'll kill the man, but Kurapika calms him down and speculates a motive of the man who did it. He also states that he got in contact with the bodyguards, so they'll arrive shortly to assist him and predicts that the auction will be canceled again, but also the surrounding area will become a battlefield. As soon as everything settled down within the surrounding area, Neon is transported to the locale hospital via an ambulance.
The prediction Kurapika gave was proven wrong and the auction started right after the Phantom Troupe's corpses were found. When the Scarlet Eyes are up for auction Kurapika bids 500 Million Jenny only to be outbid by Zenji for 1 Billion Jenny. In the end Kurapika won the Scarlet Eyes for 2.9 Billion Jenny, initially furious with the outcome, Light assures himself that he'll easily regain the money back while raising his prestige within the community. Upon waking up from her unconsciousness, Neon thanks and forgives her Father. Outside her room Light thanks the bodyguard for their hard work and notes all that's left is to get a celebrity used tissue in the auction tomorrow and orders Basho and Melody to accompany Neon on her shopping trips.
On September 4th Neon admires her Scarlet Eyes in her hotel room. Later that night Neon goes on another shopping trip and Melody informs Kurapika that Basho is close to losing his temper. Melody reveals to Kurapika when Eliza learned of Squala's death, she had a mental breakdown and surprisingly Neon showed empathy and decided to go home early, not caring for the items she wanted from the auction.
Greed Island arcEdit
Summoned by Light; Kurapika and Melody pass by Neon's room who sits on her bed in wondering why her "Ghost" won't come out any more.
Abilities & PowersEdit
When her father was the head of a mafia clan, Neon had authority over his employees and access to his wealth, provided she had her father's permission. Her reputation caused her and her father to be liked by the Ten Dons, although her influence on the mafia probably ended with the loss of her powers.
Neon is a Specialist. Although she never trained in Nen, she was able to develop a Hatsu ability, a feat that qualifies her as a genius. Her prophetic abilities allowed her father to be highly esteemed by the most powerful leaders of the mafia. Neon's ability was stolen by Chrollo Lucilfer, and she is now unable to use it.
|Neon's Nen Type: Specialization|
Lovely Ghostwriter (
Neon predicts the future through quatrains that she writes down unconsciously; the summoned Lovely Ghostwriter manipulates Neon's arm to automatically write her poems. The target must hand write his name (aliases and handles count), full date of birth, and blood type on the piece of paper on which she will write the poem. A picture of the target's face is necessary if he isn't present.
Neon's fortunes take the form of a poem with four or five quatrains of four lines each. Each verse represents a week of the current month, and typically events referenced in the poem are present as metaphors. Inauspicious fortunes always contain advice, and misfortune can be avoided if warnings are heeded. She cannot predict her own future.
Appearances in Other MediaEdit

She takes her father's place in attending the tournament, as he was feeling ill at the time. She nearly falls asleep during Netero's speech out of boredom. Right before the tournament starts, she is interested in one of the competitors, and happily looks to Kurapika to talk with him about it, only to find him missing (he had gone to meet Hisoka). Along with everyone in the stadium, Neon is taken hostage. When she is freed during Biscuit's fighting against the intruders, she laughs excitedly as she watches the woman fight. After the tournament is finished, Neon returns home in a car filled with stuffed animals with Linssen as her driver. Kurapika and Melody accompany her in a separate vehicle.
