Cuzco is a gaunt-looking man, with an almond-shaped head, and long unkempt hair. In his attendance, during the Southernpiece Auction he was clean-shaven and wore a suit and tie, but in his time in Greed Island he had facial stubble and wore a plain long-sleeved shirt, pants, and shoes.
Greed Island arc
Sometime after entering Greed Island, Cuzco is among new players that 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 near the alliance base. As the recruits are led to the base, Jispa elaborates on the job specifics they'll be responsible for in the alliance. At the alliance base, the recruits are instructed to memorize a list of spell cards within an hour.
By the time Nickes' Alliance collect nearly all of the cards in the game, Genthru reveals himself to be the Bomber and claims that all of the alliance members have bombs attached to them. After Genthru leaves the base, Cuzco is seen flabbergasted along with Redwood. Cuzco's name is mentioned in Gon's binder to see who's dead and alive. Cuzco's name has a bright dot next to it, meaning he somehow has managed to survive despite the Bombers having murdered nearly all of the alliance members. 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. Due to the main reason why everyone in Nickes' Alliance joined is that they lack combat abilities, it can be assumed that Cuzco has none as well.
Due to being able to access Greed Island, Cuzco is confirmed to be able to utilize Nen, and is presumably moderately skilled at it, since he was approved by Tsezguerra. He also survived Genthru's Countdown through unknown means.
