Palm Siberia (パーム=シベリア, Pāmu Shiberia) Palm Siberia is Knov's apprentice who develops a crush on Gon at one stage. She, on most occasions, has scruffy hair and too much make-up, not too mention a frightening aura caused by stress. However, sometimes she will do herself up and looks stunning.

Palm in her usual look

On most occasions, she has long, scruffy black hair and too much make-up, not to mention a frightening aura caused by stress. She usually wears a light pink blouse and carries a knife. However on her date with Gon, she did herself up and looked stunning.[1]

Chimera Ant

She retains her scraggly wavy hair, but it seems like her mermaid crystal ball is fused into her body and is now featured with a crystal orb over her forehead and small amounts of scales over her for-arms and lower-legs. Other than this, her physiology seems to have remained the same.

Personality

Palm is initially shown to have an erratic personality which can be often intimidating to those around her. She has a tendency to talk too much and going off the course of the topic.[2] She is also stubborn and persistent like most enhancement types. She does have a serious side which is shown when she went in an undercover mission to infiltrate the Chimera Ant's king palace as a spy. She is also a good cook[3]. Although she denied it, the target of her affections is her teacher Knov.[4] However, her affections later go from Knov to Gon.[5]

Following her rebirth, she was briefly unable to feel emotions related to her memories, until Killua involuntarily cancelled the effects of her surgery.[6] Her violent, psychotic demeanor disappeared, revealing she is actually quite intelligent. However, despite being back to her true self, she retains some aspects of the personality of a Chimera Ant, as seen when she was deeply displeased with Meruem begging and kneeling to her.[7]

Plot

Chimera Ant arc

Palm first appears after Gon and Killua escaped from NGL. She wanted to enter NGL to follow Netero, Knov, and Morel that left a condition that she can only follow them if Gon and Killua win against Knuckle and Shoot.[8] Palm called Biscuit to help them get stronger for the upcoming battle,[9] there she develops a crush on Gon at one stage during his training. When Gon and Killua loses to Knuckle and Shoot, she makes Gon go out with her.[10]

Palm's Date

Gon and Palm's first date

Palm is sent in as a personal secretary to Director Bizeff[11] so that she can secretly see the Chimera Ant King and track his location. However she was discovered by Neferpitou's En and broke down, just like what happened to Knov. She committed suicide but was revived in time and transformed into a Chimera Ant soldier[12] by Neferpitou and Shaiapouf as the first experimental soldier for the "selection". She was saved by Killua and after that she freed herself from Shaiapouf's control. After that, she went to meet Gon and sees him depart to Peijing with Neferpitou. She observed all of Gon's fight with Neferpitou and, after sending Killua to Gon, remains to protect Komugi along with Ikalgo.

When the King goes in search for Komugi and senses them, Palm hides Komugi, separated from Ikalgo, and faces the King alone. She noticed that the King will be dying by the Miniature Rose's poison and touched by the King's love for Komugi, she let them meet for one last time[13]. She then go with the others to take Gon to a hospital and once inside she sees the King's death through her "Wink Blue" ability.

13th Hunter Chairman Election arc

After the King's death she is seen along with Ikalgo in the hospital near the Hunters Association's headquarter waiting for Gon to recover from his critical condition. Being near to Gon, Palm along the others assists from the outside at Gon recover thanks to Alluka's powers feeling a strange and powerful aura. She then accompanies Gon when he goes to meet Leorio in the room where all the hunters were voting for the new chairman of the Hunters Association

After Gon's recovery she's later seen in a hospital with Knuckle, Shoot, Ikalgo, and Meleoron looking at pictures of Small-Billed Swans sent to them by Gon.

Abilities & Powers

As a human Palm was not well trained compared to the other Hunters, demonstrated by how easily Killua outran her. Even armed with a kitchen knife, she did not pose a threat to him.[14] After being reborn as a Chimera Ant, Palm became physically stronger and had all the benefits that many Chimera Ants present. The psychotic nature that upset her mind in the past seems to have disappeared.

Enhanced strength: After being reborn as a Chimera Ant, not only did Palm become physically stronger, but she acquired a new Nen ability that allowed her to concentrate all her aura into attacking. She managed to deal damage to Killua despite him parrying her blows, and shattered one of his yo-yos with only one punch despite it carrying the full momentum of a swing.

Enhanced speed: Following her metamorphosis, Palm became faster, landing scores of punches and kicks on Killua so quick and strong that he was put on the defensive without being able to fight back. 

High intelligence: The disappearance of her psychosis enabled Palm to reason coolly, going so far as to outsmart Ikalgo when the King returned.

Proficient in hand-to-hand combat: Palm is decently skilled in hand-to-hand combat, overpowering Killua during a brief clash before regaining her senses and snapping out of Pouf's control. 

Nen

Palm is an Enhancer, so she can use her aura to increase her natural abilities.[15] She is also capable of leaving messages by detaching the aura from her body. After becoming a Chimera Ant she can use her previous Nen ability, although slightly different, from her human form and a new one. It is revealed by Meruem that her aura has become stronger and commented she has “the strongest beauty of all the times I've seen, up until now”.

Trivia
