Pyon (ピヨン, Piyon) is a Paleograph Hunter and a member of the Zodiacs with the codename "Rabbit" (卯, U). She is part of the Intelligence Team, created in preparation for the voyage to the Dark Continent.
Pyon is a young woman of average height with orange medium length haircut. She wears a costume consisting of a pair of bunny ears, a miniskirt, a fluffy cotton tail, a pair of long arm warmers, and a collar. She has a rabbit head tattooed on her right shoulder blade.
Pyon has a laid-back attitude that may even appear frivolous, matched by an informal way of speaking. She seems to be the most tech-savvy of the Zodiacs, as she is mostly seen texting on her cell phone or using her laptop even during important meetings. However, she appears to be resorceful and even manipulative, being one of the Zodiacs who attempted to manipulate the votes and casually bringing up the matter of Pariston's corruption. She was visibly furious when Pariston states he wants to become the new Chairman without holding an election, and she also proved to be direct when she criticized Pariston for being late and dismissed Hisoka. Pyon hates being ignored, becoming enraged and screaming when someone does not pay attention to her, which is shown when she screams at Leorio when he doesn't want to give a speech during the chairman election.
13th Hunter Chairman Election arcEdit
|This article or section is a stub.|
After Netero's death, complying with his will, Pyon and the other Zodiacs gather to decide the structure for the election of a new Hunter Chairman. She advances that Pariston is late because he is still working, and criticizes him for being late. She opposes his taking the lead in the meeting, to no avail. She and the other Zodiacs become especially hostile against him when he suggests they skip the election and make him Chairman right away. When he claims to be the voice of the weaker Hunters, she points out that he exploits the Temp Hunters. She is dissatisfied with Ging's candidacy as well. At Cheadle's request, she writes a set of possible rules for the election and places them in a bin for Beans to draw a random one. To her annoyance, Ging's sheet, prescribing that all Hunters are candidates and voters, is picked.
On August 8th, together with Ginta and Kanzai, Pyon serves as a poll-watcher. When Hisoka votes and asks them where Ging is, she replies he is gone and will be back for the second ballot. The magician ranks her at 77 points. In the first round of the election, she places ninth alongside Cluck. Pyon tries to manipulate the votes for herself. She attends a meeting before the third round, during which she remarks that no matter what the difficulty level of the mission was, Pariston would be able to make a self-serving speech about it. When, after the third round, the number of absentees increases, at Pariston's suggestion the Zodiacs summon all Hunters at the association's headquarters. Enraged by the Boar's response, he punches him, with Pyon excitedly reminding all Hunters that a video of the event can be found on the Hunter Website. Pyon is eliminated from the eligible candidates after the results of the fourth round are disclosed.
Pyon serves as a M.C. and during the Q&A, she gives a microphone to Leorio, who asks Ging why he does not visit Gon. She gets shocked when Pariston, after winning the election, leaves the position of Chairman of the Hunter Association, making Cheadle Yorkshire the new chairman.
Dark Continent Expedition arcEdit
Beans delivers a video containing Netero's message to the Zodiacs. Pyon and the others watch the first video which gives the Zodiacs a special assignment of hunting Beyond Netero down. The second video shows the late Chairman telling about the Dark Continent Expedition, in which his son Beyond will surely participate. During the discussion of the plans, Pyon does not pay attention to the ongoing discussion, rather, she is engrossed in her cellphone and laptop. When Beyond Netero comes to meet the Zodiacs in person, Pyon and her teammates are given a proposal of a "give and take" with Beyond. The nine Hunters witness Cheadle and Beyond's following conversation from outside the cell. Later, Pyon is present when Beyond signs the contract with the terms the Hunter Association has set.
Cheadle summons a meeting to introduce the new Boar and Rat, and she starts explaining about the V6, the Five Great Calamities, the difficulty of the mission, which is A, whereas the Chimera Ants were ranked B, and asks if anyone has any questions. Kurapika then asks first about how many infiltrators on Netero's side the Zodiacs have managed to identify, much to everyone's shock. However, Mizaistom asks Kurapika to go outside the meeting room where Mizaistom explains the situation and asks Kurapika to keep his theory to himself for the time being. Afterwards, the Zodiacs sum up their preparations for the journey, with Pyon stating that she has been integrating data on the Ancient Language into their software in case they should come in contact with the Dark Continent's civilization. Reconstruction will be priority after retrieving the list of passengers. She is assigned to the Intelligence Team.
When Mizaistom calls a new meeting, Pyon is left flabbergasted by the announcement that a spy is likely to be hiding among the Zodiacs. Like the others, she agrees to reveal her powers. However, unbeknownst to her, Kurapika used his Dowsing Chain to determine who is lying, and she is revealed to be innocent.
Succession Contest arcEdit
When the Black Whale finally departs, Pyon attends a meeting with three other Zodiacs, Sanbica Norton, Tokarine, and another Hunter in Tier 3 of the ship. On the 4th day of the trip to the Dark Continent Pyon along with Botobai, Mizaistom, Cluck, and Ginta are shown to be all in the Political Ward of the ship located in Tier 3.
Abilities & PowersEdit
Being a member of the Zodiacs, Pyon is a capable and powerful enough Hunter to have served as Netero's sparring partner, as well as to be deemed by Kanzai to be stronger than Morel and Knov. Her authority in the Hunter Association is among the highest. Hisoka ranked her overall strength at 77, a score considerably higher than those of most of the Pro Hunters present, but lower than Kanzai's, Ginta's, and Illumi's. Pyon is multi-lingual, and, judging by her professions as a linguist and interpreter, proficient in both ancient and modern languages. She also displays her skill as a programmer by developing a language analysis software.
- (To Pariston) "Been lining your pockets, 'Prince of Kickbacks'?"
- (To the Hunters, about Leorio punching Ging) "Did you see that?! Let me remind you that this debate will be on the Hunter Website!! You can watch the whole thing, so let people know! In fact, make them watch it!!"
- The word "pyon" is normally used in manga as the sound effect "boing". It is sometimes employed as the onomatopoeia of rabbits hopping or jumping.
- In the Viz translation, the character's name was initially transliterated as "Piyon" (identical to the rōmaji version of her original Japanese name), but later in Chapter 346 it appears changed as "Pyon".
