The Genei Ryodan
The Genei Ryodan is a powerful thief group consisting of 13 powerful Nen user
members, all of their individual character profiles are available in the
Character Profiles Section.
Kuroro Lucifer created the Genei Ryodan about six years ago with only six
members. He believes in the power of spider and hence named his Ryodan -
The Genei Ryodan, with Genei meaning Spiders in Japanese. Kuroro is a person who
likes to read, with the York Shin auction raid, a couple of his Ryodan members
thought the objects they were going to stole were going to be books or games,
since they seemed to be their leader's hobbies. Kuroro also dislikes old
things, so he either destroys or sells the things the Ryodan steals very soon
after they obtain them. This is one of the reason that Kurapica was unable
to retrive his clan members' eyes balls stolen by the Genei Ryodan) altogether.
The Groups' Activities
As described by the Great Hisoka, the Genei Ryodan members met every couple
of years to carry out a mission together. Usually their activities include
murderer, robbery, stealing and assassination, although occasionally, they
perform acts of charity.
How to Join the Ryodan
You may join the Genei Ryodan by defeating one of its current members (trust
me, they are tough, although the Great Hisoka was able to accomplish this).
Sometimes, when there are openings for new recruits, the leader (Kuroro Lucifer)
can select a new member to join the Ryodan.
How to Solve Disputes
Since each and every one of the members of the Ryodan are extremely powerful,
you would wonder how they solve inner disputes with in the Ryodan? Having
the members fight each other to death would not be a good idea, so they use coin
flips. Looks like head or tails decides fate within the Ryodans.
This coin flip method, however, is only used when there are confusions about the
orders given by the leader. The Ryodan started to have serious disputes
within the group members when Kurapica kidnapped Kuroro.
The Ryodan Symbol
You can identify a Genei Ryodan member by a spider tattoo with a number next
to it on the member's body. The spider tattoo has 13 legs and the number
indicates the member ID of that particular member.
