- 'Hunter x Hunter' Leak Welcomes [SPOILER] To The Phantom Troupe
The long-haired assassin near Chrollo as the big gang gathers. There is no word on why the troupe has assembled, but fans want to know what brought Illumi to the team. Right now, fans are speculating the decision has to do with Hisoka. The clown is a former of the Phantom Troupe, and he has a complicated history with Illumi.
At times, the two seem to be friends as Illumi helped Hisoka find Chrollo sometime ago. However, things soured when Hisoka asked the assassin if he cared whether Killua died. But Illumi cannot take the risk of Killua developing friendships. Because if Killua should make friends, should become comfortable with social groups, it would lead to Killua figuring out he was gay. And once Killua knew that he would always be chasing after the boys. An independent streak of that nature had the potential to doom the Zoldycks.
And Illumi would be blamed for it. Primarily to keep an eye on him. But Illumi had no intentions of letting Killua get away with this independence. He would see to it that Killua failed the Exam, failed in a way that would humiliate him and force him to return home, never to attempt such a thing again.
And that boy turned out to be Gon freakin Freecss! By the time the end of the arc winds down, Illumi was very much aware just how big of a threat Gon could potentially be to the Zoldycks.
'Hunter x Hunter' Leak Welcomes [SPOILER] To The Phantom Troupe
That Hisoka had taken a special interest in Gon and seen potential in him was all the more reason for Illumi to want Gon dead. There was the very real possibility that Killua might not just become friends with Gon, but they could one day fall in love. That was the threat Gon represented to Illumi. Was it a general comment meant to describe the two of them playing a cat and mouse game?
That would make sense given they have a standing contract to kill each other. Illumi has good reason to want Gon dead. Best to let someone else handle it. There are several places in the story where we saw Illumi take the initiative to kill Gon, but was stopped for one reason or another. One of those reasons being Hisoka. Illumi is hopeful that Hisoka will eliminate the Gon threat.
But several times Hisoka seems to drop the ball. Doubtless, Illumi was disappointed by that.
The next time was during the Yorknew arc when Gon and Killua were captured by the Troupe. Hisoka had another opportunity to kill Gon, but seemed to be more a threat to Killua.
The next time was on Greed Island, once again Gon is presented to Hisoka on a silver platter. Hisoka had ample opportunity to kill Gon. And yet he did not. How frustrated Illumi had to be. Along with the bonus of eliminating the threat of Alluka. For this Illumi uses Hisoka, but once again things do not go according to plan. Hisoka sorta handles the butlers, but not much else.
Illumi is the clear looser here, with Hisoka pleased as punch that Gon will survive to fight him one day in the future as was always expected. Illumi wants Gon dead, as soon as possible. Hisoka wants to kill Gon, but not for a long time yet. Gon is thus caught in the middle along with Killua. When did Illumi and Hisoka figure out Killua was in love with Gon? Although Illumi feared the possibility that Killua might become more-than-friends with Gon right from the very beginning, a series of events worked to reinforce that notion.
Eventually there came a moment when Illumi was convinced Killua was in love. Want to guess when that was? In the fateful scene Anime Ep.
Hunter x Hunter
Killua discovers the needle implanted in his mind long ago by Illumi. He removes the needle and instantly regains full control of himself and his abilities.
Rammot continues to taunt him to which Killua reflects on his relationship with Gon, how Gon is his most precious friend, and proceeds to destroy Rammot. Consider the situation had Rammot not mentioned Gon. Or had it been any other Ant who had no knowledge of Gon but was still as powerful as Rammot. In those conditions Killua would have submitted to his brainwashing and fled the more powerful opponent in keeping with his training.
A sound tactic since it would have lead the Ant away from the area, reducing the chances of it finding Gon. That needle in his mind served as a handicap, it was what prevented him from defeating Shoot. But the turning point was Gon. Had Shoot been a direct threat to Gon, doubtless Killua could have summoned the strength to discover the needle and defeat Shoot.
It all comes down to circumstance and love. But that needle is critical to Illumi. It gives him great control over Killua, reinforcing all the assassin training and most of all the special restriction against Killua making friends. That needle provides Illumi with information about where Killua is, what his mental and emotional state are, and may go as far as transmitting images.
Specifically, that Killua was impowered by his love for Gon. Even if this was not the moment, a while later, following the battle of the Chimera Ants, the Zoldycks would have been briefed on the outcome. He has very long jet black hair, usually combed behind his head as well as, very large, dark eyes.
To disguise himself as Gittarackur, Illumi uses large round head pins to reconstruct his facial structure, and even voice, beyond recognition.
The pins in his chest seem to affect the muscles in his body, as he looks more slender without them. When he was younger, Illumi's hair only reached his shoulders. He wore long sleeves with a shirt underneath, as well as grey pants. Illumi, for the most part, displays very little expression.
In contrast to his expressionless demeanor, Illumi often speaks in a somewhat joyful and absent-minded tone. He is generally a stony, ruthless person with an extremely cold way of thinking, reflects only his interest. Still, he holds a twisted and overprotective form of love for his younger brother, Killua; this manifests to the point that he used his Nen ability to control Killua and ensure he survives and obeys.
He and his father raised Killua to believe that the only thing sustaining him was darkness, and that he could only obtain joy in causing the death of others. To ensure that Killua would live to carry on the family business, and as a means of protecting his little brother, Illumi implanted a needle in Killua's brain, forcing the latter to run from battles he wasn't sure he could win.
Illumi once came to the aid of Hisoka by standing for him as a double in the Phantom Troupe's hideout while Hisoka attempted to find Chrollo. However, when Hisoka asked Illumi would it be okay if he killed Killua, Illumi displayed a horrifying side of himself and asked if Hisoka wanted to die then and there - he acted very similar to how Hisoka did himself after Illumi was opting whether or not to kill Gon, whom he sees as a threat due to his closeness with Killua, during the Hunter Exam, albeit on a much lesser expense.
Illumi cares for most of the Zoldyck family members. He is willing to handle Alluka's power, even if it costs him his life.
