Greed Island arc
Intent on stealing Gon and Killua's newly acquired "Sword of Truth" card, he appears right after Motaricke fails to steal the card. Arka uses two "Pickpocket" cards to randomly steal the cards the boys have gathered. However, due to the boy's precautionary actions to protect their cards, Arka only manages to steal a single "Rock" card. Running out of tricks and realizing the boys are too smart for him to trick, he gives up and flees.
Arka's name is mentioned in Gon's binder when he checks to see who's still in/alive in the game.
