"After 50 years of lying through my teeth, I can tell whether someone's telling the truth."
Biscuit Krueger (ビスケット゠クルーガー, Bisuketto Kurūgā) is a Double-Star Stone Hunter who was hired by Battera to clear the video game Greed Island following the auction for the game in Yorknew City. She prefers to be called "Bisky" (ビスケ, Bisuke). She also served as the tritagonist for the Greed Island Arc.
Biscuit likes to act and look like a young girl. Her overall aspect is reminiscent of a porcelain doll. She is often shown wearing a sleeveless dress and a bloomer with a mantle and skirt donned over it, along with gloves and plain leather shoes. She always has her hair tied up neatly and has changed its style at least three times.
In her true form, she is a massive and extremely muscular woman several times the size of her preferred form. Although she claims to stay in her younger form to have the enemy underestimate her, the main reason is that she hates her original appearance. Regardless of which form she is in, Biscuit is very powerful. However, she does receive a tremendous power boost in terms of physical strength when she reverts (her Nen stays relatively unchanged between her forms). As a Royal Bodyguard, she wears her hair in a laced bun and dresses in a suit and tie.
She has brown hair and blue eyes. In the 1999 anime, her hair is a lighter brown than in the manga. In the 2011 anime, her hair is blonde and her eyes are pink.
Biscuit has a devious personality. She has a tendency to use her cutesy appearance and demeanor to her advantage, whether it is for gathering information, getting what she wants, or acting innocent and helpless in combat to deceive her opponents. She jokingly said that if someone insists on using an honorific, they must call her -chama (-chan + -sama). Though in the beginning she was out to destroy Gon and Killua's friendship for fun, at the end of Greed Island she acknowledges that she is close to developing parental feelings toward the two of them. She is prone to violent outbursts whenever she is left out of a conversation or reminded of her true age; Killua often becomes one of her victims because of his wisecracks about it. She can also get into arguments with people whose personalities differ from her own, such as Kurapika. Despite her sternness and deceitful personality, Biscuit is easily persuaded once someone compliments her appearance; when Kurapika acknowledges her looking like a princess, Biscuit immediately becomes flattered and agreeable. On the other hand, despite her hard training to reach it, she detests her true form, as it does not match her idea of femininity.
As far as martial arts and training are concerned, Biscuit takes a stern and serious attitude towards her opponents and students alike. She has no qualms about killing an enemy fighter in combat, though she does not believe it is right outside of it and believes that lofty morals are an impediment in times of crisis. She unrelentingly pushes her students to their limits. She becomes deeply upset when she finds individuals with potential who squander it, and derives joy from polishing their abilities. As a Stone Hunter, she loves collecting precious stones, gems, and rare jewels and has a habit of naming them. She also loves getting money.
Additionally, Biscuit expresses delight upon seeing handsome, young adult men and their figures; she was shown getting excited upon seeing a naked Hisoka. She also enjoys men's fashion magazines during her leisure time.
Biscuit started to learn Nen at the age of 17. She also studied Shingen-ryu kung fu and later became Wing's master. After passing the Hunter Exam at some unknown point, she served as an examiner herself. According to her, she has always been a consummate liar.
Greed Island arc
Biscuit participates in Tsezguerra's selection test for Battera's Greed Island challenge. She is in the first group of participants to stand in line, doing so right away, and to pass the test, along with 20 other people. She is later relocated to Battera's mansion to enter the game. When she reaches Antokiba, she is approached by members of Nickes' Alliance, who take her to a gathering where Nickes, Genthru, and Assam explain the basics of playing the game to other new players and warn them about the "Bomber". Nickes asks the newcomers if they would like to join his alliance, but Gon refuses, his decision being respected by Killua. Biscuit seems to have refused as well and, intrigued by Gon's attitude, she decides to observe the young Hunter and his friend, commenting that it's fun to ruin the friendships of little boys. She runs into Gon and Killua outside a shop and asks them if she can join their group, but Killua coldly refuses. Biscuit becomes offended and decides to ruin their friendship beyond repair, but maintains her frail persona and follows them.
On their way to Masadora, Biscuit continues her pursuit, while silently commending Gon and Killua's stamina. The three of them suddenly come upon a group of bandits, who ask the three to help their village. In the village, the bandits explain that all their people became ill and that they need money to buy medicine. Biscuit tries offering her money, but Killua asks her to keep quiet, further fueling her anger. After the encounter with the bandits, which leaves Gon and Killua practically broke, they proceed towards the badlands plagued by monsters. From the sidelines, Biscuit keeps a close eye on both of them. Although initially impressed, she watches their failures with growing frustration while secretly defeating the monsters herself until they encounter a Radio Rat, at which point she cannot help but tell them to use Gyo. After they defeat the creature, she says that she will be their teacher from now on. After sending Killua flying twice, she introduces herself and answers Killua's objections by stating that she is Wing's teacher. She makes them aware of the risks by showing them the cards of the monsters they have failed to defeat. Suddenly feeling Binolt's bloodlust, she warns Gon and Killua and has them pretend that they noticed nothing, staging her departure from the group to lure the murderer towards herself. After she lets him cut her hair with his scissors, Binolt finds out about her true power and formally challenges her to a duel, with Biscuit effortlessly defeating him.
She claims that if Gon and Killua had been the ones to fight Binolt, he would have killed them. Gon asks about her reason for coming to Greed Island, which Biscuit reveals to be the rare gem Blue Planet. When she questions Gon in return, she learns that he is the son of Ging Freecss and tells him that his father is, according to Isaac Netero, one of the best Nen users in the world. Gon and Killua ask her to be their teacher, so she takes all the cards Binolt has and tells him to evade the two boys' attacks for two weeks inside a rocky arena under pain of death. She tells them who Binolt is and starts the training session. She is favorably impressed with Gon's special move and his decision not to begin an endurance contest. She quickly notices that the two boys' performance is improving and relishes their potential. She keeps watching while the three fighters rest, thinking to herself that Binolt's imperfect Zetsu will not allow him to kill Gon and Killua in their sleep. Ten days later, when both have defeated the killer, she accepts his proposal to leave the island and turn himself in, understanding that it was Gon's intention all along.
Next, Biscuit has the boys run to Masadora in three hours. After buying a few cards, she has them make the return trip in two and a half hours. She converts the cards into items and tells Gon and Killua to head back to Masadora, but by digging through any rock that stands in their way. At night, she has them sleep while sitting and holding a rope that prevents a rock, which she replaces with a bigger one every night, from falling on their head. Eventually, they discover Shu and reach Masadora again, completing the first phase of her training. Next, she tells them to go to Masadora again, but this time collecting monster cards along the way. While watching Gon try to catch a Hyper Puffball, she thinks that the game is ingeniously designed, and speculates that Ging created it to make his son stronger. When both manage to catch the Bubble Horse, she demonstrates Ko and has them train their Ken to withstand it. After one month, she introduces them to Ryu and watches them spar, which at first they do slowly, impressing her. After only two weeks instead of the two months she had originally planned, she moves to train them by Nen type.
After Gon and Killua have a rock-scissors-paper contest, Biscuit explains that the game is derived from martial arts principles, inspiring Gon to mold his Nen abilities after it. She reflects that Gon thinks like a child, whereas she is appalled by Killua's ability to convert his aura into electricity, thinking once again that the two make a perfect team. She suggests celebrating since it is almost New Year's Eve, which reminds Gon of the upcoming Hunter Exam. They head to Masadora so that Killua can find out how to leave the island, eventually learning that they can complete quests for the Harbormaster or bribe him. On the way to the harbor, the two boys make quick work of a pack of wolves, causing her to take further note of their progress. Killua leaves, and Biscuit resumes her training with Gon, but they are soon approached by Abengane, who tells them about Genthru being the Bomber and his schemes. Afterwards, Gon asks her when his signature move will be perfected, to which she replies that it is a lifelong process, but that he will manage to achieve what he envisions by the time Killua returns. Gon changes his mind and considers going to the alliance's hideout to look for survivors, but Biscuit doubts there are any. They go to Masadora and buy 60 spell cards, finding the rare "Fortress", which causes them to become agitated since they do not know what to do with it. She then returns to monitoring Gon's training, also expanding on his Emission exercises.
When Killua returns, the team casts spells for practice, and they discover that someone going by the name "Chrollo Lucilfer" is listed in Gon's binder. Biscuit asks several times to be brought into the loop, but it is only after she punches the two boys that they tell her about Kurapika, the Phantom Troupe and Judgment Chain. She states that it is indeed possible to remove Nen. After Killua phones Kurapika and they conclude the person in the game is not the real Chrollo, Biscuit invites Gon to show Killua his special techniques.
After Gon and Killua have decided their Nen abilities, Biscuit lets them begin actually playing the game. After acquiring more than 50 specified slot cards, they are recruited by Kazsule to join an alliance of players to stop Genthru from clearing the game. They then head to Soufrabi to look for the rare "Plot of Beach (G.I card)". During their first encounter with a group of pirates, Biscuit challenges the pirate footballer, but intentionally loses. After acquiring information on the matches played against Razor's pirates, they form a stronger team by adding Goreinu, Hisoka, and Tsezguerra's team to face Razor and his 14 devils. When they win three consecutive matches, Razor challenges them to an 8v8 dodgeball match. Biscuit also participates in the dangerous game.
She does not receive any damage but is still eliminated due to her dress being hit by the ball. Knowing her student's stubbornness, she tells Gon to beat Razor even if it costs him his life. The group eventually triumphs and obtains the card, but the Bombers contact them, stating that they have killed all the members of the previous alliance and are now going after them. While Tsezguerra buys time, Biscuit trains Gon and Killua for the approaching battle. When the time comes, she faces Bara. She uses "Accompany" to transport the both of them to a beach outside Soufrabi. She initially lands a barrage of blows on him, but he knocks her down with a slap. Laughing, she tells Bara that she let him land a strong hit on her face before her transformation because when she releases her full power, she sometimes fails to control herself. After returning to her true form, she instantly defeats Bara. She also notes that she hates her normal form because it is "too buff".
After beating the three Bombers, they use the "Angel's Breath" card to heal Gon, Killua, Bara, and Genthru. Goreinu gives Tsezguerra's cards to the trio so that they can reach 99 specified slot cards and clear the game. To get the "Ruler's Blessing" card, all the players of Greed Island are invited to participate in a quiz, but Biscuit doesn't play since she hates quizzes. Gon gets the highest score and is invited to the capital, Limeiro. Biscuit and Killua accompany Gon to the castle.
She is later seen in the festival held in honor of the players who have cleared the game. After the event, Gon asks Biscuit what card she would like to take with her when they leave the island, and she sticks with her dream of getting "Blue Planet". When they are outside the game, she uses "gain" to get the gem and names it Plu-chan. She is moved to tears by Gon's wish to introduce his friend Killua to his father. Afterwards, Gon and Killua part ways with her after she declines to continue on their adventure to find Ging.
Chimera Ant arc
Biscuit is contacted by Palm Siberia to help Gon and Killua train for their battles against Knuckle and Shoot in their attempt to return to NGL and rescue Kite. She waits for them to return after lunch and chews Gon out for his unreasonable resolution to get back to NGL in only one week. She tells them that she will not teach them anything else until they can maintain their Ren for three hours, but they cannot even make it to one. She has them try again and again late into the night, at which point she has Cookie massage the two to allow them to recover in only 30 minutes. Palm warns her to give up as soon as they realize it is hopeless, explaining that her rage will not be as intense. Biscuit replies that she should say so to Gon and Killua, then asking her what Netero, Morel, and Knov will do over the course of the next month.
After ten days, when Gon and Killua manage to maintain their Ren for three hours straight, she sends them immediately to fight Knuckle and Shoot in their exhausted state, simply telling them not to take their tokens with them. She states that from that day on, they will maintain Ren for three hours, then challenge their opponents right afterwards. After another ten days, she notices that Gon and Killua can maintain their Ren for one hour while talking casually, but thinks that before they can force Knuckle to use his full power, ten more days will be necessary, and at that point they will only be halfway through their training. She thinks that she will be satisfied if her students can at least figure out what they are missing before Palm's ominous aura convinces her to prepare an escape route. Palm is aware of the exact speed of their progress, but Gon manages to ease her concerns, to Killua and Biscuit's awe. Biscuit, however, remains worried about escaping Palm's wrath.
On the day before the deadline, she allows Gon and Killua to rest before challenging Knuckle. When they return, Biscuit has Cookie massage an unconscious Gon and orders Killua to spar with her. By doing so, she makes Killua aware of his inferiority complex when facing stronger opponents, adding that it is a habit that was instilled into him by the perverted love of the one who taught him to fight. She has him promise that if he cannot win against Shoot the following day, he will leave Gon's side, as she warns him that he may end up leaving his friend to die at some point. That evening, she sees the two boys off and, uncertain of the result and still wary of Palm, flees the city.
13th Hunter Chairman Election arc
Following the will of the late Chairman Netero, Biscuit also submits her own vote at the first round of the 13th Hunter Chairman Election and comes in 16th place. She later comes in 13th place in the second round and 12th place in the third round. Biscuit is also among the Hunters that go to the hospital to check on Gon, who lies in critical condition after his battle with Neferpitou. Biscuit then comes in 10th place in the fourth round, and finally 9th place in the fifth round where she is taken off the list of candidates because only the top 8 are able to continue on to the sixth round of the election.
Being near to Gon, Biscuit is among those outside the hospital who feel a strange and incredibly powerful aura after Alluka heals Gon. She then accompanies Gon when he goes to meet Leorio in the auditorium where all the Hunters are voting for the new Chairman of the Hunter Association.
Succession Contest arc
Biscuit is recommended by Killua to Kurapika, who is looking to keep tabs on some of the Kakin Empire's Princes by having trusted Hunters be hired as their bodyguards. Although she initially gets furious at Kurapika, she is soon pacified when he flatters her, and she resolves to do anything he says. She is eventually selected by Prince Marayam.
On the day of departure, without him or anyone else apart from the Hunters being aware of it, Marayam's Guardian Spirit Beast leaves his quarters and enters Prince Woble's quarters. When Kurapika uses the emergency channel, Biscuit reports that she saw Nen beasts which have since left, and that she believes them to be the product of parasitic-type Nen. Later during dinner, she and Hanzo notice that Marayam's Nen beast has grown larger and that it knows that they can see it.
After Prince Momoze's sudden death at the hands of one of her bodyguards, Biscuit tries to console a furious Hanzo who blames himself for not being able to save her. Mindful that asking him may make him even angrier, she still asks anyway what his plan is, hoping to help him calm down. He thinks that the murderer used a clone and that he was one of the two bodyguards on break at the time of Momoze's death. Biscuit agrees with his assessment, and Hanzo swears to her that he will make the murderer pay. Worried, Biscuit tells him to get some rest. Later, the two notice the changes in Marayam's Nen beast, which Biscuit attributes to his growing inner turmoil. When their shift ends, Hanzo tasks her with watching over his body while he uses his ability to look for Momoze's killer, which Biscuit agrees to in return for a nature beauty pack. When he comes back, however, Hanzo finds that Biscuit and his body are gone. Unbeknownst to her, she and everyone else in Room 1013 have been cut off from the rest of the world by a Nen ability.
When the time of her and Hanzo's shift comes, she wakes him up, irritated at having been forced to stay up all night. Hanzo tells her about the condition of Marayam's quarters. She resolves to teach Nen to everyone in the room to convince Vergei of its existence. Faced with his skepticism, Biscuit returns to her true form in front of him, declaring that, unlike Kurapika, she cannot promise that her students will master Nen in two weeks, but that if they are talented enough, their physical strength will double or triple in one month. Vergei asks her to teach him and agrees to allow Belerainte to leave the room. When he does not disappear right away, Biscuit states that there are three different types of barriers and that crossing the threshold might constitute the activation condition. Belerainte finds himself unable to reenter the room, which prompts Biscuit to deduce that the ability belongs to Marayam's Nen beast.
On Sunday, Biscuit agrees with Vergei that the ideal scenario would be one where Marayam does not have to leave the safety of the hidden room until landfall, but she also suggests sending the Hunters stationed in it to the "real" room to reduce the burden on the remaining servants, as well as to maintain appearances. She preempts Vergei's objection by stating that the room being cut off makes the presence of Hunters there superfluous. She adds that she will remain with Marayam since she deems a woman's presence necessary and since the Prince has taken a liking to her. She then goes to play with him, letting him ride on her shoulders.
Nen Type Training
Biscuit has introduced Nen exercises to develop her students' Nen abilities. Although only some of the exercises for Enhancement, Transmutation, and Emission were shown, she has actually devised ways to practice Manipulation and Conjuration as well.
- Level 1 - Rock Breaking
The student enhances a rock's durability using Shu and Ko to repeatedly smash a specifically large number of rocks as much as possible within an allotted amount of time. The student will typically go from start to finish once a day until they reach their goal number without failure.
- Level 1 - Nen Numbers
The student runs while trying to shape their aura on their index finger from 0 to 9 within an allotted amount of time. The student will repeat the practice with the intent of shortening the time it takes to go through the numbers while paying attention to what's in front of them.
- Level 1 - Name Unknown
The student first prepares a specific distance and object as a targeted goal and practices emitting a small ball of aura, maintaining its shape and prolonging its duration. Once the student has a grasp of emitting and maintaining their aura for a certain duration, the student sends the aura ball flying towards the destination. The student will repeat attempting to fling the aura ball towards the target until it reaches the intended goal. The more a Nen user has practiced their Ten and Ren, the easier it is for them to complete the exercise. With proper discipline, one can eventually learn to maintain an aura sphere for two or three days at a time.
- Level 5 - Floating Hand
The student needs to position into a one-arm handstand and emit an aura strong enough to launch their body off the ground. The student will repeat the exercise until a predetermined height is reached.
Abilities & Powers
Due to her status as a professional Hunter, Biscuit has access to considerable funds and classified information, as was proven by the fact that she knew that Blue Planet could be found only in Greed Island. As a Double-Star Stone Hunter, her contributions in her field have been judged crucial, and befittingly, she seems particularly knowledgeable about gemstones. She is held in high esteem within the Hunter Association, as can be inferred by her reaching the fifth round of the election.
Biscuit is an incredibly skilled and powerful fighter. Through gruesome training, she was able to reach the peak of her physical potential. Out of all the participants in Razor's dodgeball match, she was the only one to emerge completely uninjured, despite playing in her younger form. She has yet to show any offensive-oriented special abilities, as the combination of her extensive knowledge in Nen, honed body, and martial artistry have been enough to dispatch all her opponents thus far. Her full power is also unknown, but she managed to defeat troublesome opponents such as Binolt and Bara single-handedly, with them growing terrified at her true power, which even in her younger form she is rather adept at concealing. Even Killua dreads her strength. Aside from her combat skills, she is also endowed with a bright intellect and a fair amount of experience owed to her age. A consummate liar, she has developed the ability to tell when someone is hiding something, even someone as skilled as Hisoka, and she uses her youthful appearances to trick her opponents into underestimating her. She has an unwavering strength of mind and confidence, which allows her to never hesitate during a fight. Due to her training, she is capable of resting with a larger part of her brain awake than normal, remaining vigilant even as she sleeps.
Preternatural Perception: Biscuit was able to detect Binolt's bloodlust and determine his position in an instant, whereas both Gon and Killua were completely unaware of his presence. She is a particularly adept judge of power.
Immense Strength: Biscuit's strength is vastly superhuman. Even without reverting to her original appearance, she was able to cause Binolt to vomit a large amount of blood and briefly fall unconscious with a single palm thrust on his back without even using Nen, claiming that he would have died otherwise. She was also capable of throwing a ball with enough strength that one of Razor's Nen beasts, despite being capable of redirecting his incredibly powerful throws, failed to catch it. When she returns to her real form, her physical brawn increases considerably. A single punch from her in that state was enough to crush Bara's face and knock him out, whereas six blows in her younger body hurt and injured him without defeating him.
Immense Speed and Reflexes: Although she hides her true abilities, Biscuit is incredibly fast even in her younger form. When they didn't know her true identity, both Killua and Gon praised Biscuit for keeping up with their pace while running through the forest. Later, she slapped Killua without him being able to catch a glimpse of her movement, despite his being on guard and possessing exceptionally quick reflexes. She can run 70 km in 150 minutes (the average speed being 28 km/h) without the slightest difficulty. When she fought Bara, she was able to get behind him before he could react, even in her younger form, despite Bara being quick enough to catch an arrow mid-flight, and he was never able to counter her attacks until she let him hit her. When she turned back, she closed in on him and punched him before he could notice her moving. Biscuit also managed to dodge a shoot ball thrown by Razor who, pretending to be aiming at Killua, had rigged it to turn in her direction. In fact, her reaction time allowed her to avoid the ball with her whole body, unlike Hisoka, and it was only the bagginess of her skirt that caused her to be eliminated.
Enhanced Stamina: Biscuit watched over Gon and Killua for weeks during their training without seemingly getting any sleep herself, certainly none for at least ten days, and still did not show the slightest sign of exhaustion. She was able to run 70 km in three hours and, after a brief pause, that same distance in two and a half hours without breaking a sweat, whereas Gon and Killua were both left winded after the second trip.
Keen Intellect: Biscuit is very smart, analytic, and knowledgeable, especially regarding Nen. She was capable of easily deducing the weaknesses of the monsters of Greed Island. Thanks also to her experience, she is a praiseworthy tactician, her predictions often proving accurate.
Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Since her adversaries have not been a match for her so far, her degree of mastery in this field is unclear. In her fight with Binolt, she dodged his attack and at the same time flipped him over, putting him in a suitable position for a critical strike. Against Bara, she demonstrated the ability to accurately strike vulnerable areas, such as the chin and the neck, and to successfully exploit blind spots. Another testament to her skills in combat was shown during a sparring match with Killua, a tremendously capable martial artist himself, from which she came out completely unscathed while inflicting him with several bruises, in spite of him focusing on evading. She was the one who trained Wing in the Shingen-ryu school of kung fu, and is thus a master of this style.
Excellent Teacher: In a short time, Gon and Killua grew tremendously in strength and Nen abilities thanks to her training. She can devise tailored training methods depending on the receiver, environment, and resources at hand. Hisoka acknowledged her abilities in this field. She also claimed to be able to double or triple the physical strength of a talented beginner within one month.
Biscuit is a Transmuter who also appears to be proficient in Emission, Enhancement, and Manipulation, despite the latter Nen type being the hardest for Transmuters to master. Her main Nen ability seems to combine Transmutation, Manipulation, and either Emission or Conjuration. She has developed exercises that allow her students to train in all five accessible categories, which should suggest that she has acquired a high level of skill in all of them, especially given her habit of demonstrating the exercises herself. Since she successfully performed her "Floating Hand" exercise, she is capable of firing an aura beam that can knock a Nen user back a dozen feet at the very least. Her theoretical knowledge of Nen extends to the specifics of abilities she herself does not possess, such as teleportation and parasitic-type abilities.
Biscuit has mastered all the basic and advanced Nen techniques, with En being the only one she never showcased. She can combine Ten, Ren, Zetsu, Gyo, and Hatsu in her Ko, which had enough power to knock Gon back several meters and give him a nosebleed while he was using Ken, despite her moving her hand extremely slowly. She also claimed that if he had undone the technique instead of just relaxing it, she would have smashed his face in. She can maintain Ko for 30 minutes with no effort. She displayed Zetsu while hiding from the Bombers, as well as Ken, Shu, and In on other occasions. She can perform Ryu at such speed that Gon was unable to discern the changes in her aura flow as she punched. Her estimations are so accurate that in her late twenties she could already redistribute her aura with a margin of error lower than 1%.
|Biscuit's Nen Type: Transmutation|
|Type: Manipulation and Transmutation||Magical Esthetician (魔法美容師 Magical Beautician) or |
Magical Spa Services (まじかるエステ, Majikaru Esute)
|Biscuit summons a masseuse she calls Cookie (クッキィちゃん, Kukkyi-chan) which uses different massaging techniques and a Nen-transmuted lotion to relieve fatigue and restore vitality to anyone it massages. It can also burn off excess fat and cure arthritis, muscle tension and locked joints. It is particularly useful for training/recovery purposes and to treat aging ailments. Although only one massage has been shown so far, there are many more according to Biscuit, some of which are cartilage massage, head massage, and roll massage. This ability is a mixture of Transmutation, Manipulation and, presumably, either Emission or Conjuration.|
|Type: Manipulation and Transmutation||Piano Massage (|
|With this massage, 30 minutes of sleep will be equivalent to eight hours. It not only relieves physical and mental fatigue, but it also accelerates the restoration of the aura of the person receiving the massage. Cookie emits aura from her hands while massaging. Thanks to this ability and their natural talent, Gon and Killua were able to concentrate over one year's worth of aura training in just one month.|
|Type: Unknown||Body Transformation*|
|Biscuit is capable of changing her appearance to look younger and far less muscular, which comes at the cost of severely reducing her physical abilities. Although the primary motive behind her transformation is an aesthetic one, it allows her to conceal her true power and thus retain a trump card in battle. She is fond of employing her younger look to deceive others to her advantage (e.g., by asking for favors or requesting information through feigning frailty). She can revert to her original form at will, restoring her great height and brawn. Biscuit herself is unaware of how she acquired the ability to alter her form, stating that all she did was wish for years and that the changes manifested little by little.|
Battles & Competitions
- (While spying on Gon and Killua) "Little boys are so innocent. And it's so fun to ruin their friendships..."
- (To Gon and Killua) "I'll coach you from now on, and for free. But I definitely won't go easy on you!!"
- (To Binolt) "You were lucky. I would've killed you if this had been a battle of Nen."
- (To Binolt) "If you get hit and collapse, or can't stand anymore, I'll kill you."
- (While comparing Gon and Killua to gems) "Why do things that shine with polish always make my heart go pitter-pat?"
- (To Killua) "There are two kinds of liars: those who lie for a reason, and those who don't."
- (To Bara) "A bit slow on the uptake, are we? It means I'm out of your league."
- (To Bara) "I always let people get one blow in. As a tribute. I can't restrain my punches well enough when I turn back... so I usually end up killing them."
- (To Goreinu) "A duel is life or death. You can't hesitate to kill someone if it means your own survival. But once it's over, it's a different matter."
- (About Gon and Killua) "If they give it all they've got, they'll have to accept the results, whatever happens. But, I'll be happy enough if they at least figure out what they lack."
- (To Killua) "When you face an opponent you perceive is stronger... you immediately get ready to bail! One day you'll let Gon down and leave him to die...!"
- (To Killua) "If you can't beat Shoot tomorrow... stay out of Gon's life!!"
- (To the voters) "You can't solve a crisis with lofty morals!! The recent fiasco with the Ants proves it."
- Her name, Biscuit, and nickname, Bisky, probably came from "bisque doll", a doll made out of bisque porcelain popular between 1860 and 1900 in France and Germany (hence her German surname); bisque, a type of unglazed white porcelain, is a subgroup of biscuit pottery. This origin/inspiration is reinforced by the Volume 15 cover that seemingly features Biscuit with a porcelain doll-like appearance (more than her usual manga design) and the fact that her last name, Krueger, originates from Krüger meaning "potter" in High German.
- In the Viz translation of Chapter 326 and Chapter 329, her last name is either changed to or misspelled as "Kreuger".
- According to Biscuit, it normally takes one month to prolong Ren by ten minutes, although Gon managed to go from two to over 30 in that same timespan. Since Gon went from being unable to maintain it for 55 minutes to barely doing so for 3 hours in approximately ten days, this means that her Piano Massage enabled him to condense between around 4 to 13 months of Ren training in one and a half weeks, depending on the natural speed of his progress.
- According to the "Hunter × Hunter Manual" section found in the Yu ☆ Yu ☆ Hakusho official character book (Shueisha Jump remix),* Biscuit's stats are:
|Greed Island arc||5/5||4/5||5/5||4/5||4/5||4/5|
Anime and Manga Differences
- In the 1999 anime adaptation, Killua initially does not count Biscuit as one of the applicants who passed Tsezguerra's test, mistaking her for a doll and being surprised when she moves.
Intertextuality and References
- Biscuit shares some similarities with the YuYu Hakusho character Genkai:
- both have their students undergo very harsh training to perfect their control over aura;
- both are capable of transforming into a younger version of themselves;
- both are called stereotypical old lady names by their students, Biscuit being called "hag" by Killua and Genkai being called "grandma" by Yusuke and Kuwabara;
- and the way Biscuit makes Gon and Killua train in the Emission category is reminiscent of the pose with which Genkai fires her Spirit Gun technique.
- Roboco of the Me & Roboco manga briefly cosplays as Biscuit in Chapter 91.
- Biscuit's English voice actress, Tara Sands, was the voice of Anna Kyoyama from Shaman King. Like Biscuit, she puts the main hero through harsh training in order to control their spirit energy and grow stronger.
