Ten Dons

The Shadow Beasts ((いん)(じゅう)()()()()()()()(), Injū) are a special group consisting of the 10 most powerful Nen users within the Mafia organizations in the world.


Under the direct command of the "Ten Dons," supreme leaders of the Mafia, every beast has his own code name that derives from the animal which inspired him to develop his Nen abilities. These warriors individually accompany the Ten Mafia Dons around the globe in their every move, but their real power is only unleashed when they are united, thanks to the fact that their abilities allow them to cover the weaknesses of each other.[1] This group, however, ceased to exist because of the Phantom Troupe, who wiped them all out without mercy on a single night,[2] except for Owl who was taken to be interrogated.[3]


Yorknew City arcEdit

After a large number of Mafia members and auction clients in Yorknew City are massacred by the Phantom Troupe, the Ten Dons send the Shadow Beasts to deal with them, not knowing who they are.[1] Uvogin faces four of the ten Shadow Beasts[4] and kills them.[5] Afterwards the remaining Shadow Beasts are subsequently killed, aside from Owl[2] so the Ten Dons put large bounties on the Troupe's heads[6] and hire professional assassins, including Zeno and Silva Zoldyck, to eliminate the Troupe's members.[7][8]
