Woble Hui Guo Rou (ワブル=ホイコーロ, Waburu Hoikōro) is the Fourteenth Prince of the Kakin Empire, and the daughter of her father's eighth wife, Queen Oito. She is the youngest child among the 14 siblings.[1]


Woble is an infant with short, dark hair and round dark eyes. In later chapters, her hair has become of a lighter color.


Chap 369 - Woble reaches

Woble grasps Kurapika's hand

As an infant, Woble should not yet possess a defined character. She is almost always seen sleeping. In some instances, she has shown to have grown fond and trustful of Kurapika, often reaching out for him and holding his hand.[2][3]

Chap 350 - Kurapika holds Woble

Kurapika holds Woble

Her mother tries to hire bodyguards on her behalf in preparation for the journey to the Dark Continent, during which the war for the succession will take place. Kurapika is selected.[4]

Sometime later, Woble and her mother board the Black Whale 1. For a few moments, a dark aura is released from inside Woble's cradle, startling Kurapika.[5] The following day, she is carried by her mother to another party. When five bodyguards are murdered, Kurapika tells Oito, who is holding Woble, to stand behind him as he interrogates this colleagues.[6] After learning of the Seed Urn Ceremony, he hypothesizes that Woble attacked and killed Woody upon sensing his hostility.[7] Woble remains inactive through most of the following events, but cries right as Vincent arrives[8] and, shortly afterwards, leans towards Kurapika, causing her mother to give her complete trust to the bodyguard.[2]

Chap 364 - Woble reaches out 2

Woble reaches out to Kurapika

Woble, with her mother and Kurapika, attend a meeting with one of her older brothers Zhang Lei, to divulge information about Nen.[9] The meeting however is cut short and since Woble lacks manpower due to Guardian Spirit Beast attacks, Zhang Lei offers his bodyguards Sakata and Hashito to help guard them until the next dinner banquet. When Woble returns to her quarters, she's put back in her cradle by her mother.[10] While looking for a cockroach to use Sayird's Nen ability and while Kurapika explains Guardian Spirit Beasts to Maor and the other present bodyguards on Woble is carried by her mother. It's until the cockroach is located and the Nen ability is used upon it her mother feigns weakness and is put back in her cradle by Shimano who stays by her side.[11][12] Woble continues to stay in her crib as her mother passed out from exhaustion and when she awakens she reaches out for Kurapika signalling her mother to trust in Kurapika.[3]

Abilities & PowersEdit

As an infant, Woble is completely dependent on adults, and her authority is purely nominal. However, possibly as a result of the Seed Urn Ceremony, Woble appears to be endowed with a paranormal awareness: not only she was supposedly able to sense malicious intents aimed at her,[7] her actions right after Kurapika's request for trust made the plan to subdue Vincent viable.[2] Even more remarkably, she started crying when Vincent approached her quarters, whereas not even Bill and Kurapika sensed any sort of threat until the man killed Sandra.[8]

Guardian Spirit BeastEdit

Like her siblings, Woble is a recipient of parasitic type Nen. In the Seed Urn Ceremony, she received an egg from which a Guardian Spirit Beast has hatched to protect her.[5] The Guardian Spirit Beast is subject to two rule-like instincts: it is unable to fight other Guardian Spirit Beasts as well as to directly attack the host of one.[13] Its abilities and appearance are currently unknown.
