Tubeppa has sharp, bowl-shaped fair hair, a long nose, a long thin mouth and a squarish chin. She wears a pair of eyeglasses and earrings. Her features and build are very manly, she also chooses to wear formal suit during the departure party, while her sisters are wearing dresses.
Tubeppa is a scientist. She displays confidence to win the succession war. Unlike her sister and half-sisters, she prefers to dress in more masculine style in clothing. She has a straightforward personality, and much like her half-brother Tserriednich, she analyzes the capabilities of the other Princes. She plots to purge Benjamin, Camilla, and Zhang Lei, all of whom she deplores for their qualities, even though Camilla is her own biological elder sister. According to Shimano, she has an ideal version of the kingdom, she is very patient and tolerant, and she will reprieve her younger siblings once she gains control of the throne.
She seems to value modesty and humility, and loathes those who lack such traits. She despises Benjamin for his arrogance, Camilla for her greed and Zhang Lei for his indulgence in excess and luxury.
Dark Continent Expedition arcEdit
Tubeppa participates in the ceremony on the eve of the expedition and boards the ship, thinking she will win the succession war while saluting the cheering crowd. Tubeppa then takes part in the formal event with her family and other important guests. Like the rest of her family, Tubeppa resides in the 1st deck of the ship. During the formal event, Tubeppa offers to forge an alliance with Tserriednich to purge three other senior Princes and Tserriednich agrees to it. Tubeppa arranges they'll meet again on Sunday and while she leaves, Tserriednich comments she may not live until then, as her Spirit Beast follows her.
After Kurapika's announcement regarding the Nen beasts, Tubeppa expresses interest and orders one of her bodyguards to bring information about the Hunter immediately. As Maor is about to head out to meet Kurapika, Tubeppa warns him that he'll not reveal everything in their meeting, but in meetings held afterwards and to decide how to approach the situation in those other meetings. Wary of Butch, Tubeppa contemplates she has to find a way to get rid of the bodyguard.
Tubeppa agrees to send her bodyguards to learn Nen under Kurapika.
Abilities & Powers Edit
As a prince of Kakin, Tubeppa holds significant political power and wealth, although not on the level of elder princes. She is knowledgeable about some branches of experimental science. She is also knowledgeable in advanced mathematics, as she has recently wrote down several calculations on a blackboard behind her.
Like the rest of her siblings, Tubeppa received an egg from which a Nen beast hatched to protect her. Since it is a parasitic-type ability, she has no control over it. Tubeppa herself is unaware of its existence. The Nen beast is subjected to two rule-like instincts: it is unable to fight other Guardian Spirit Beasts as well as to directly attack the host of one. Its abilities are currently unknown.
The Spirit Beast seems to be able to make itself unseen, as it occasionally absent from its host presence.
