Assam was a man of average height and build. He had a defined jaw and a slightly upturned nose, as well as squinty eyes and short eyebrows. His hair was a dark blond color and in a mound towards the top. He was seen wearing a lavender shirt in the 2011 anime and an ash-gray shirt in the 1999 anime.
Like his fellow alliance members, he had an informative personality with extensive knowledge on the game.
Greed Island arc
Assam is among the players that try to recruit some new players into their alliance. He discloses that there are three ways to obtain cards in the game and allows the new players to name them. He elaborates on the sudden increase of people using the most unscrupulous method of obtaining cards because of the card conversion limit and how it's responsible for the spike in player hunters and deaths within the game. The alliance, however, has managed to obtain 67 of the 100 specified slot cards. In the five years since the alliance started, all seemed hopeless at first, but in recent months it doubled the number of members and cards. So in order to stop the needless bloodshed that has occurred over the years, the alliance members ask the new players to join their group. In the end, only two of the possible five join (whose names are Abengane and Puhat).
Afterwards, the alliance members meet up with Jispa, who uses a "Leave" card on each of the two new members and reports that Contarch has recruited eight new members. This causes the alliance members Genthru and Nickes to get into an argument over the reward money, but Assam stops them by telling them that Nomdieu and Isaac may overhear their conversation.
After Nickes announces that the alliance has nearly completed its goal, Genthru gets the group's attention and reveals that he is the Bomber and has placed bombs on all of the alliance members. Hearing this revelation, Jispa tries to incapacitate him but get his face blown off first. Genthru then explains his two Nen abilities to the alliance and escapes. Assam curses the fact that Genthru will be getting away with 50 billion while he was supposed to split 20 billion with the other founders. He gets into an abrasive argument with a junior member whose payout is paltry compared to his. Nickes stops the argument and beseeches that the group hand over their cards to save Jispa's life.
A man by the name of Bara, who later reveals that he is also a Bomber member, delivers Puhat's severed head as an example to the group to give in to their demands. He also discloses an alternate way for them to disarm the bombs. The alliance members eventually surrender their cards, but instead of disarming the bombs, the Bombers detonate them and kill nearly all of the alliance members.
Abilities & Powers
Since most of the alliance members joined because they lacked combat abilities, it can be assumed that Assam also had none.
