The Freelance Assassins were a group of assassins hired and assembled together by the Ten Dons to eliminate the Phantom Troupe. It seems they were all Nen users, although their degree of skills differed slightly.[1] All of them were killed in action.[1][2][3][4]


Yorknew City arcEdit

On the night of September 3rd at the Cemetery Building, the Freelance Assassins, the Zoldyck Family members Silva and Zeno Zoldyck, and the Nostrade Family boss Light Nostrade accompanied by his newly assigned bodyguard Kurapika, all attend a meeting regarding the Phantom Troupe that is lead by a mobster named Zenji, who is closely affiliated with the Ten Dons. Zenji informs the group that their job is to eliminate the Phantom Troupe and how they do it is arbitrary. Assassin D requests a floor plan of the building and Assassin E requests a map. Assassin D also proposes codenames and Assassin F suggests colors. A couple of the Assassins choose colors, however, this idea is immediately scrapped when the assassins learn that Silva and Zeno of the Zoldyck Family are among them. Assassin A then proposes they all work solo and ultimately the majority supersedes the minority and the meeting concludes.[1]

An hour before the start of the auction, Assassin A, witnesses a man deftly knock out Neon Nostrade and notes that any normal person would miss it. Afterward, he tracks down the man who turns out to be Chrollo, leader of the Phantom Troupe, by following Assassin F's blood trail. Chrollo proposes a one on one match and Assassin A agrees.[2] The outcome of the match has Assassin A eaten by Chrollo's Nen ability Indoor Fish and he dies when a window in the room opens.[3] Later, Silva finds Assassin D's corpse and compliments the performance done to kill him to his father Zeno.[4]


Note: The assassins are unnamed, thus this Wikia will attribute a letter to each of them.
