Rihan (リハン, Rihan)[1] is a high-ranking soldier in the Royal Army of the Kakin Empire, and one of the personal soldiers of Prince Benjamin.[2] He is now among Prince Salé-salé's bodyguards under orders from Prince Benjamin.[1]


Rihan wears the standard Kakin military attire of zipper jacket, pants, and dark combat boots.[2] He wears an earpiece in his left ear.[1]


Rihan is a very perceptive individual. He can deduce the nature and ability of someone's Guardian Spirit Beast by simply being around it, despite the short amount of time. He is quite confident in his ability to counteract against Prince Salé-salé's Guardian Beast.[1]


As one of the First Prince's soldiers, Rihan graduated from Kakin's Royal Military Academy and became a part of his army.[3]


Succession Contest arcEdit

Rihan is among the other thirteen soldiers working under Prince Benjamin that is present during Balsamilco's explanation before the journey's start.[4]

Chap 374 - Rihan and Coloabude

Rihan during his shift with Koroabde

Later, Prince Benjamin orders his fourteen soldiers to both act as bodyguards and spies to all the other princes, and to report any information regarding the Princes' Guardian Spirit Beasts and the Hunters' abilities. Rihan becomes the Eighth Prince Salé-salé's bodyguard.[2]

On the second day of the voyage, Rihan is seen in the Eighth Prince's bedroom as Salé-salé secretly hints to two women what he intends to do at the banquet.[5] In the course of his 16-hour shift, he also analyzes the abilities of the prince's Guardian Spirit Beast, determining that when his fellow bodyguard will be affected, he will have enough information to activate Predator. He estimates that if his ability can neutralize a Guardian Spirit Beast, he will be of great use to Prince Benjamin.[1] Roughly 54 hours later, when a small clone of Prince Salé-salé's Guardian Spirit Beast appears above Koroabde's head, Rihan determines that he has all the information he needs and activates his ability, which swallows the Guardian Spirit Beast as well as its clone. Having cleared his mission and being prevented from using any Nen for the following two days, Rihan contacts his superior to relay his success and request that his security shift be swapped with Ushouhi's so the latter can assassinate the defenseless prince. He then talks directly to Ushouhi, who claims that it is almost confirmed that Prince Fugetsu's Guardian Spirit Beast has teleportation capabilities.[6]

Abilities & PowersEdit

Rihan has received military training.[2] He has proven himself to be very observant and analytical.[1]


Rihan is a Nen user, although his superior Balsamilco Might believes him to be less skilled than Hunters in that regard.[7] He has at least the ability to use Nen ability. He appears to be profoundly knowledgeable about Manipulation Nen as well as Nen beasts.[1]

Rihan's Nen Abilities
Type: Conjuration[1] Predator (異邦人(プレデター) Stranger)
Chap 381 - Predator manifestingChap 381 - Predator Once Rihan has selected a target and activated his Nen ability, a "Predator" begins to grow inside his body. The more accurate his understanding of the target's ability, the better the Predator will be able to counter it, figuratively developing into its natural predator.[1] When Rihan has gathered enough information, he focuses his aura between his hands and breathes out, conjuring the Predator. The one that countered Prince Salé-salé's Guardian Spirit Beast swallowed it and its small replica above Koroabde's head, then replaced it at the prince's side.[6] Despite being conjured,[1] this Predator was invisible to the non-users in the room.[6]

Since it draws strength from the accuracy of Rihan's analysis from a state of complete ignorance, Predator is powerless against simple Enhancement and Emission attacks.[1] After it successfully counters a Nen ability, Rihan is unable to use any Nen for 48 hours.[6]
