Succession Contest arc
As Prince Benjamin leaves the party, he orders Coventoba to get in contact with Balsamilco. Afterward, all of Prince Benjamin's private soldiers are ordered to both act as bodyguards and spies to all of the other princes, and to report any information regarding the Princes Guardian Spirit Beasts and the Hunters abilities. Coventoba becomes the Third Prince Zhang Lei's bodyguard, along with Slakka, Queen Duazul's soldier. During Prince Zhang Lei's meeting with Queen Oito, Prince Woble, and Kurapika, Coventoba and Slakka are both present. Immediately after the meeting, Coventoba informs Slakka to go with Kurapika and his group as it's Queen Unma's orders, much to Slakka's dismay.
The following day, while Prince Zhang Lei is having dinner, a coin drops to the floor. He initially believes it to belong to one of his bodyguards, but they tell him it just appeared out of thin air. Coventoba picks it up and hands it to the prince, who examines it, without telling him it was the work of his Guardian Spirit Beast, which had also produced a coin, currently in the soldier's pocket, the day before. The next day Prince Zhang Lei asks him about the coins, and Coventoba replies that as a conjured item, it either replicates the function of the real thing or has some supernatural effect; since no coin like that seems to exist, the soldier speculates it has the latter power.
After Kurapika initiates Tenftory to Nen, Zhang Lei rewards the latter with what he believes to be the first coin produced by his Guardian Spirit Beast, while Coventoba silently thinks that the first one is actually in his possession. At that point, he notices that the value of the coin has increased from 1 to 10. He determines it to be due to the Guardian Spirit Beast's ability and wonders if he should slide it in its mouth, but rules out doing so due to the risk involved. He asks Tenftory to see his coin, to which is identical to his own and decides to return to observing. Moments later he accompanies Zhang Lei to Onior Longbao's room, reporting his movements to Benjamin.
