Illumi Zoldyck is one of the characters in the Hunter x Hunter anime series, who is the eldest child in the Zoldyck Family.

For physical appearance, he is described as having very long jet-black hair. In addition, he also has large black eyes, with no pupils.

- It is likely that the name Illumi comes from the Italian word (Illuminato) which means “enlightened”.
- Illumi is also a Manipulator, so it suits the Illuminati’s purpose.
- In Manga Vol. 30 [Chapter 320] Illumi is shown at the place where the vote was held. He is disguised as Gittarackur for the first time since the Hunter Test Storyline.

- Illumi has a strong immune system that is not easily affected by poison.
- He also has the ability to avoid electric shock.
- His physical strength is so great that he is very agile when carrying, whether using weapons or not.
- Like an actor, Illumi is good at mimicking the various personalities and attitudes of others without arousing suspicion of him.
- In addition, he also has the ability to throw needles with a level of accuracy that easily hits the target.
- Killua is always wary whenever Illumi comes near, as he has a very strong murderous aura.

“Now I can tell you, that you would not make a good Hunter. Your calling is as an assassin. There’s no fire in you, just darkness. It sustains you, drains you of any desire. Your only joy is in causing death, and even that is fleeting. That is how Dad and I molded you.”
Although Illumi Zoldyck has a friendly relationship with Hisoka, it is unclear how the relationship developed.
