Zodiacs Volume 30 Colored

The Zodiacs, without Pariston

The Zodiacs (十二支ん, Jūnishin) are a group of twelve hunters that have been recognized by Chairman Isaac Netero. The chairman would entrust them with the Hunters Association in times of emergency, and would also spar with them in his free time. They each have a codename associated with one of the Chinese zodiac signs, which most of them chose to match in appearance out of adoration for Netero.[1]

Leorio Paradinight

Codename the Boar, replaced Ging Freecss.[13] After Leorio's reputation and regard within the Hunter Association has been boosted during the events of the Chairman Election arc, the Zodiacs ask Leorio to fill one of the vacant spots for their voyage to the Dark Continent, assigning him to the medical team of the Science Division.[14]


Codename the Rat, replaced Pariston Hill.[13] Nominated by Leorio, Kurapika is asked to join the Zodiacs on their voyage to the Dark Continent. Although hesitant at first, he agrees after hearing that the Zodiacs have information on the location of a collection of Scarlet Eyes. He is assigned to the Intelligence Division.[14]

  • Trouble Hunter specifics?

    • I assumed he just acted as a counselor to people when they're going through 'trouble'. I could be wrong though. That's just an assumption, after all.
