Puhat normally seen walking with his hands in his pockets like Killua. He has a hunch in his posture making him seem shorter. He has a little facial hair. He is seen wearing a purple vest with white flaps along with purple pants for his first appearance to his death. He seems to close his eyes a lot while explaining something and adds some hand gestures.
Puhat was noted for being a very perceptive individual as well as a very intelligent one. He was quick to deduce many things and always asked the right questions at the right times. It is worth noting that all of his deductions were spot on during the Greed Island arc. According to Killua, he tried to act smart, but he was in fact smart although he may have also been somewhat over confident in his abilities.
Greed Island arc
Gon and Killua meet him during the Greed Island player recruitment exam in Yorknew City. He observed Tsezguerra's explanation of the hiring process for playing Greed Island. He then gets into a conversation with Gon and Killua while commenting on the hopeless applicants. After sharing some of his intuition, he walks away looking smug only to be shot down mentally by Killua's comment that those who pretend to be smart die fast. Right before the players hired by Battera get ready to enter the game, an order had to be decided. Puhat suggested rock, paper, scissors even if he didn't win.
Soon after entering the game, he's convinced to join Nickes' alliance of players, hoping to clear the game in a couple of months. After Genthru reveals himself as the Bomber and blackmails the alliance, Puhat attempts to negotiate with the Bomb Devils behind the other players' backs. He did so because the rest of the alliance was in disorder. He believed they would stay restless until the bombs Genthru set exploded with his Countdown ability. However, Genthru regards him as a worthless player and kills him. Puhat's head then is severed and used to threaten the rest of the alliance.
