Cuzco is a gaunt-looking man with an almond-shaped head and long, unkempt hair. While attending the Southernpiece Auction, he was clean-shaven and wore a suit and tie, but during his time in Greed Island, he had facial stubble and wore a plain long-sleeved shirt, pants, and shoes.
Greed Island arc
Sometime after being hired by Battera and entering the game, Cuzco is among a group of new players who were convinced to join Nickes' Alliance, presumably by Contarch. The recruits wait in front of the Shiso Tree for a senior member known as Jispa to arrive. The moment he does, Jispa instantly uses an "Accompany" to transport them to another alliance member named Kosofftro, who sits somewhere near the alliance base. As the new recruits are led to the base by Jispa, he divulges to them that their first task is to collect certain spell cards in Masadora for the alliance. At the alliance base, the recruits are instructed to memorize a list of spell cards within an hour.
When the alliance is close to collecting all of the cards in the game, Genthru reveals himself to be the Bomber and claims that he has placed bombs on all of the alliance members. After Genthru leaves the base, Cuzco appears flabbergasted along with Redwood. Cuzco's name is mentioned in Gon's binder and has a bright dot next to it, meaning that he somehow managed to survive the Bombers' massacre of most of the alliance. He is mentioned by Goreinu as one of the Hunters hired to play the game.
Abilities & Powers
Cuzco is capable enough to have passed the notoriously difficult Hunter Exam and has access to all the privileges granted by his status as a Hunter. Since most of the alliance members joined because they lacked combat abilities, it can be assumed that Cuzco also has none.
Due to being able to access Greed Island, Cuzco is capable of utilizing Nen, and it can be assumed that he is moderately skilled at it since he was approved by Tsezguerra. He also survived Genthru's Countdown through unknown means.
