Kakin Empire (カキン()(てい)(こく)()()()()()()(), Kakin Teikoku) is a country in the middle of the Azian Continent, and later also one of the countries of the V6.[1]

HistoryEdit

Hunter X Hunter World Map

Kakin's location

In the age of rival warlords, Kakin was a small country threatened to be absorbed by its neighboring countries. Around that time, the First King of Kakin conjured the Seed Urn inspired by the "worm toxin" and had his children fight in a succession contest for the throne, which is the foundation for Kakin becoming the superpower that it is today.[2]

Ancient Kakin had a tradition where princes who failed to become kings were buried together with a sacrifice to prevent them from becoming vengeful ghosts who would curse or haunt the king. Despite supposedly being a great honor, this "afterlife companion" was always selected from the lowest caste in the system. This custom has since been abolished.[3]

Taking advantage of the "Shinrinkan Incident", the country shifted from being a socialist empire to a parliamentary democracy thirty years ago in what was called "The Most Silent Revolution in History". As a result, the name of the country was changed and all treaties considered null by the new government. In recent years, it underwent a considerable economic growth. It is currently ruled by Nasubi Hui Guo Rou.[4]

PlotEdit

Chimera Ant arcEdit

Hunter X Hunter 2011 Episode 76 a0

Gon, Killua, and Kite in Kakin

After using the Greed Island card "Accompany", Gon and Killua are transported out of Greed Island to this country where they meet Kite instead of what they believed to be Ging.[5] Kite is hired by the Government of Kakin and his team of six Amateur Hunters to carry out a biological survey that consists mainly of ecological research—discovery of new species (the quota on their current contract is seven new species). Other Amateur Hunters are studying changes in native species habitat and population fluctuation. The team has been in Kakin for three years, and they still have one month till their contract with Kakin runs out. Since their quota is already fulfilled, Kite recruits Gon and Killua in the team and decides to find seven more species.[6]

During the three years they've spent in Kakin, Lin Koshi has discovered the most number of new species (1019), and Kite has discovered the least (68 new species). The Camp Tiger is regarded as their biggest discovery during the whole trip.[6]

One month later, Kite and the Amateur Hunters turn in their results from the biological survey to the Kakin government. The zoologist Wong is delighted by their work and claims these results are worth 200 years of their own research. He then says they can't pay them a bonus but promises to recommend their team to the ministries of other countries. While there, they are also told that Southernpiece Auction House has acquired a segment of a strange creature. They are unable to put it up for auction in fear of its legality, but are offering to sell it to a professional Hunter.[7]

Dark Continent Expedition arcEdit

Kakin manga

Kakin's capital

Nasubi Hui Guo Rou announces that there will be an expedition to the Dark Continent and has Beyond Netero invite everyone to Kakin, which serves as the gathering point.[4] The Five Modern Nations initially invite the emperor to desist,[8] but after a summit, they resolve to endorse the project and invite Kakin into the group, becoming the V6, in order to share in the benefits, while the organization of the voyage is left to Kakin. The Black Whale No.1, a gigantic ship capable of carrying 200,000 people, is the means of transportation to the Dark Continent. The emperor declares he will have 20 more built in the span of a year, as well as to send 100,000,000 people to the Dark Continent in 5 years.[9] However, the voyage also serves a secret function: it is on the Black Whale that Nasubi's 14 children will compete for the throne by killing each other in a succession contest.[10]

GovernmentEdit

Royal FamilyEdit

Kakin is a monarchical empire, ruled by King Nasubi Hui Guo Rou who has eight wives, with 14 legitimate children.

  1. Queen Unma gave him two sons, Benjamin and Tserriednich.
  2. Queen Duazul gave him two daughters, Camilla and Tubeppa, and two sons, Luzurus and Halkenburg.
  3. Queen Tang Zhao Li, gave him one son, Zhang Lei.
  4. Queen Katrono gave him one daughter, Tyson.
  5. Queen Swinko-swinko gave him one son, Salé-salé.
  6. Queen Seiko gave him two daughters, Kacho and Fugetsu.
  7. Queen Sevanti gave him one daughter, Momoze, and one son, Marayam.
  8. Queen Oito gave him one daughter, Woble.

Even though officially there is no official ranking among the wives, there still exist some rules and privileges among them. For example, lower ranking wives cannot contact the higher ranking ones.

Since gender has no bearing for succession, all the children are referred to as "Prince" — as in the "Nth Prince" in order of birth. All 14 Princes are currently participating in a succession contest aboard the Black Whale during a voyage to the pretend New Continent where the sole survivor will be the official heir to the throne.[11]

Illegitimate children of a king take the name of "Second-Track Fakers"[12] (二線者, Nisenmono) and receive two scars on their face the moment they are born. They are allowed to live[13] and receive ample privileges in the underworld[12] on the condition that they forever remain in the shadows.[13]

ParliamentEdit

Kakin is a parliamentary democracy[4] and has an unknown ruling party.[14] The real power of these institutions is debatable, however, since King Nasubi seems to be the supreme leader of the country.

MilitaryEdit

Prince Benjamin is a Military Deputy Adviser. His personal militia are all soldiers in the Royal Army, making them qualify as Royal Guards to the other Princes.[15] Balsamilco Might, his Captain of the Guards, is a Master Sergeant.[16]

Kakin Royal Army

The Royal Army guarding the halls of the Black Whale

During Kakin's voyage to the pretend "New Continent", the Black Whale is under martial law. The Royal Army is acting as a neutral party to the Succession Battle and are assigned various tasks on board. The through-ways between the ship's tiers are guarded by the Royal Army. The military also manages all phone lines present in the ship, as well as monitoring the halls and keeping track of all activities.[17] The Royal Army were shown to handle the deceased bodies of bodyguards and princes alike by carrying them outside a prince's quarters.[18][19] They also restrain suspects and take them into custody to question them.[20][19]

Botobai and Mizaistom are assisting the military by taking command of the private security.[17] Both negotiated to obtain the passenger list of the Black Whale No.1 by getting the V6 to contact Kakin on their behalf. Botobai believed they would be able to reach an agreement thanks to the strong channels Begerossé Union and United States of Saherta have with Kakin. Mizaistom was also responsible for performing background checks of candidates.[1] He is currently in the Royal Army conference room, while Botobai is located in the central courthouse of the Black Whale. Saccho plans to talk to Mizaistom and suggests a rotation so either him, Kanzai, or Saiyu go support the Royal Army instead of "babysitting" Beyond.[17]

Princes' EmployeesEdit

Oito Recruits Kurapika

Queen Oito recruits Kurapika

The Hunter Association restricted each Kakin prince to fifteen employees on board the Black Whale during their two-month voyage to the pretend New Continent.[10]

The fifteen employees can range from personal guards (e.g. Maor), Royal Guards/spies from the higher Queens (e.g. Slakka), Royal Guards from the princes' mothers (e.g. Mushaho),[16] servants (e.g. Shimano),[17] to Pro Hunters recruited from outside (e.g. Kurapika)[21]

Moreover, Princes Camilla, Zhang Lei, Tserriednich, and Tubeppa pushed this limit to 20 by sending 5 of their personal guards to take the 289th Hunter Exam and pass as Provisional Hunters with limited licenses only for the voyage (e.g. Theta).[10]

Below is a list that specifies the characteristics of these categories:

  • Personal Guards: Soldiers each prince assembled through their own connections. Only the First Prince's guards also serve as royal army officers. The guards of the oldest five princes have been training since their childhood to give their lives to the prince. Morale and loyalty are high.[22]
  • Queen's Guards: Royal army soldiers allotted to each queen. Each prince's guard has little sense of connection to them, but they are loyal to their queens.[22] Some of them are willing to assassinate the prince they are assigned to,[23] whereas others abhor the notion and limit themselves to monitoring their prince, making sure he or she does not become a threat to the safety of their client or her children.[24]
  • Hunter Association Members: Professional Hunters hired as bodyguards by each individual prince. Exclusively defensive, they do not assist assassinations even by request from the client.[22]
  • Provisional Hunters: Each prince's guards and the Hunter Association coordinated to gather personnel to guard areas outside residential quarters. These personnel were given temporary Hunter Association member status as a matter of convenience. Rules have been ignored and they freely enter quarters.[22]
  • Servants: Some also serve as soldiers, and some are noncombatants. The more personnel a prince requests, the more furniture, necessities and luggage allowed to fit in their residence, and therefore the fewer weapons they can bring (those with weapons are supplied).[22]

This particular issue arose when their mother Queen Sevanti sent all of Momoze's Hunters and servants to Marayam. Since we only got to see 4/5 of Momoze's Hunters and 2/3 of her servants by that time, we can't say for certain which prince the marked characters initially belonged to.


Benjamin's EmployeesEdit

Benjamin orders his soldiers to act as royal guards

Benjamin orders his Personal Soldiers to act as Royal Guards for the other Princes

Prince Benjamin's employees all belong to his personal army, graduating from the Kakin Royal Military Academy. Additionally, all fifteen bodyguards as well as Benjamin are Nen users.[15] Since Benjamin doesn't have any servants, his living quarters' luggage limit is at minimum, increasing subsequently the number of weapons and provisions for weapon carriers.[22] Balsamilco Might is Benjamin's Captain of the Guards,[15] as well as a Master Sergeant in the royal army.[16]

Unlike the other high ranked princes, Benjamin refused to send his soldiers to take the 289th Hunter Exam and pass as Provisional Hunters to be an additional force during the voyage. Tserriednich claims that Benjamin is too prideful to have the Association judge his superior soldiers.[11]

The Royal Guards chosen by the queens must all be official soldiers of the Kakin royal army in order to qualify. Since Prince Benjamin is the Military Deputy Adviser of the royal army, his personal guards are the only ones who fulfill these requirements and hence are able to infiltrate the other princes' quarters by replacing Queen Unma's Royal Guards in alternating shifts, reporting all observations back to him.[15] Assaulting them even in the name of self-defense would most likely result in an arrest and being convicted as an assassin.[23] However, children of the First Queen are not obligated to comply to Benjamin's orders.[15]

Camilla's EmployeesEdit

Camilla has her own personal army, consisting of seven personal guards, seven servants and five Provisional Hunters with limited licenses for the voyage,[22] in addition to one spy sent by Queen Unma and later replaced by Musse from Prince Benjamin.[23]

She refused to send any of her guards to attend Kurapika's Nen training on the second day of the voyage, which was taken to mean either that there are Nen users in her personal guard, or that Camilla has sole authority over all matters.[25]

Zhang Lei's EmployeesEdit

Zhang Lei has his own personal army, consisting of ten personal guards, three servants, and five Provisional Hunters with limited licenses for the voyage,[22] in addition to two spies sent by Queens Unma and Duazul; the former being replaced by Coventoba from Prince Benjamin. None of his personal guards are Nen users.[16]

In accordance to his alliance with Prince Woble, Zhang Lei sends two of his personal guards (Sakata and Hashito) to aid Kurapika in protecting the Fourteenth Prince until the first banquet, and to compensate the reduction of Prince Woble's staff after attacks from Silent Majority's user.[23] He later sends Tenftory to attend Kurapika's Nen training course.[25]

Since the First and Second Queens are cooperating to write up the surveillance reports of the younger princes, Queen Unma orders Slakka (Duazul's Royal Guard) to assist Sakata and Hashito and accompany them to Room 1014, leaving the Third Prince's matter to Coventoba.[23]

Tserriednich's EmployeesEdit

Chap 348 - Tserriednich's provisional hunters

Five of Tserriednich's personal guards pass the 289th Hunter Exam as Provisional Hunters

Tserriednich has his own personal army, consisting of ten personal guards, five servants, and five Provisional Hunters with limited licenses for the voyage.[22] From his army, only Theta and Salkov are confirmed to be Nen users.[2]

On the second day of the voyage, Tserriednich sends Myuhan and Danjin to attend Kurapika's Nen training course. He orders the two to kill everyone there if they failed to learn Nen in the promised time-limit of two weeks.[25]

Tubeppa's EmployeesEdit

Tubeppa has her own personal army, consisting of nine personal guards, five servants, and five Provisional Hunters with limited licenses for the voyage,[22] in addition to one spy sent by Queen Unma and later replaced by Butch from Prince Benjamin. None of her personal guards are Nen users.[23]

On the second day of the voyage, Tubeppa sends Maor and Longhi to attend Kurapika's Nen training course, to further strengthen her alliance with Kurapika.[25]

Tyson's EmployeesEdit

Chap 362 - Tyson's guards

Prince Tyson's personal guards and Pro Hunters

Tyson has her own personal army, consisting of five personal guards, five servants, and two Pro Hunters,[22] in addition to three spies sent by Queens Unma through Tang Zhao Li, the first of whom was by Orau from Prince Benjamin. Other than the Pro Hunters, none of her personal guards are Nen users.[26]

She refused to send her soldiers to take the 289th Hunter Exam and pass as Provisional Hunters to be an additional force during the voyage. Tserriednich explains that Tyson won't allow her precious soldiers to go outside and have anyone else touch them.[11] Likewise, she didn't let them attend Kurapika's Nen training on the second day of the voyage.[25]

Luzurus' EmployeesEdit

Probably due to their attrition with the Hunter Association,[11] Luzurus does not solely rely on his own personal army, seeing that the majority of his guards are from his mother Queen Duazul's side. His army consists of six Royal Guards from Queen Duazul, four personal guards, one servant, and three Pro Hunters,[22] in addition to one spy sent by Queen Unma, later replaced by one of Prince Benjamin's soldiers.[15] Among his guards is Satobi, Queen Duazul's Captain of the Guards.[25] Other than the three Pro Hunters, none of his personal guards are Nen users.[2] It is yet to be known if any of Duazul's guards can use it.

Luzurus sent his personal soldiers to take the 289th Hunter Exam so they could pass as Provisional Hunters and be an additional force for him during the voyage. However, all soldiers failed the exam. Tserriednich Hui Guo Rou believes Luzurus had suggested assassination to his men, without thinking there might be lie detectors.[11]

On the second day of the voyage, Luzurus sends Satobi to attend Kurapika's Nen training course.[25]

Salé-salé's EmployeesEdit

Salé-salé does not solely rely on his own personal army, as some of his guards are from his mother Queen Swinko-swinko's side. His army consists of three Royal Guards from Queen Swinko-swinko, five personal guards, and three servants,[22] in addition to four spies sent by Queens Unma through Katrono;[24] the first was replaced by Rihan from Prince Benjamin.[22] None of his personal guards are confirmed to be Nen users, although Tuffdy, one of Swinko-swinko's Royal Guards, has shown the ability to use Nen.[26] In the prince's employ is also Mushaho, Queen Swinko-swinko's Captain of the Guards.

On the second day of the voyage, Salé-salé "got rid" of Mushaho by sending him to Kurapika's Nen training course.[25]

Halkenburg's EmployeesEdit

Halkenburg has his own personal army, consisting of fourteen personal guards[22] and one spy sent by Queen Unma, later replaced by one of Prince Benjamin's soldiers.[27] None of his personal guards are Nen users, although all of them were half-awakened to Nen due to the influence of the Ninth Prince's Guardian Spirit Beast.[26]

On the second day of the voyage, Halkenburg sends Shedule and Yuhirai to attend Kurapika's Nen training course, to learn more of the Guardian Spirit Beasts' nature.[25]

Kacho's EmployeesEdit

Kacho does not have a personal army and fully relies on the Pro Hunters and her mother's Royal Guards. Her staff consists of two Royal Guards from Queen Seiko, three Pro Hunters and five servants,[22] in addition to five spies sent by Queens Unma through Swinko-swinko;[24] the first was replaced by one of Prince Benjamin's soldiers.[15] Neither Royal Guard from Seiko's side is confirmed to be a Nen user.

On the second day of the voyage, Kacho sends Loberry and Yuri to attend Kurapika's Nen training course.[25] During the course, Loberry was arrested after being suspected of killing Barrigen.[26]

Fugetsu's EmployeesEdit

Fugetsu does not have a personal army and fully relies on her mother's Royal Guards. Her staff consists of two Royal Guards from Queen Seiko and eight servants,[22] in addition to five spies sent by Queens Unma through Swinko-swinko;[24] the first was replaced by one of Prince Benjamin's soldiers.[15] Neither Royal Guard from Seiko's side is confirmed to be a Nen user.

The abundance of servants in her staff and the shortage of Pro Hunters or personal guards makes her the least equipped Prince in terms of weapons or provisions for weapon carriers as her living quarters' luggage limit is at a high level.[22]

On the second day of the voyage, Fugetsu sends Illardia and Ladiolus to attend Kurapika's Nen training course.[25]

Momoze's EmployeesEdit

361 - Sevanti transfers Vergei and the other Hunters to Marayam

Queen Sevanti transfers most of Momoze's employees to Marayam

Momoze did not have a personal army and was reliant on her mother's Captain of the Guards, Vergei, as well as several Pro Hunters. Her staff consisted of one Royal Guard from Queen Seiko, five Pro Hunters and three servants,[22] in addition to six spies sent by Queens Unma through Seiko, the first of whom was replaced by Vict of Prince Benjamin.[23] Shortly after the departure, Queen Sevanti transferred her staff (bar the higher queens' guards) to her younger brother, Prince Marayam.[20]

After her death, the six Royal Guards suspected for her murder were arrested.[19] Later, Hanzo avenges Momoze by killing her murderer, Tuffdy, while staging a suicide and forging a confession note.[26]

Marayam's EmployeesEdit

Marayam does not have a personal army and fully relies on the Pro Hunters and his mother's Royal Guards. His staff originally consisted of one Royal Guard from Queen Sevanti, five Pro Hunters and three servants,[22] in addition to six spies sent by Queens Unma through Seiko,[24] the first of whom was replaced by one of Prince Benjamin's soldiers.[15] After the departure ceremony, Queen Sevanti transferred the staff (bar the higher queens' guards) of his older sister, Prince Momoze, to his side.[20] Therefore, Marayam's staff currently consists of two Royal Guards from Queen Sevanti, ten Pro Hunters, six servants as well as the higher queens' guards.[22] Neither Royal Guard from Sevanti's side is a Nen user.[27]

On the second day of the voyage, Queen Sevanti sends Belerainte and Barrigen to attend Kurapika's Nen training course.[25] During its first minutes, Barrigen is killed by an attack from Silent Majority's user.[28]

Woble's EmployeesEdit

Chap 361 - From eleven to two guards

After few hours from departure, Woble's staff are down to two guards and two servants

Originally, Woble's staff consisted of four Pro Hunters, four servants and seven spies sent by Queens Unma through Sevanti.[24] After multiple attacks from the user of Silent Majority[18] and Benjamin's soldier Vincent, the number dwindled to two Pro Hunters (Kurapika and Bill) and one servant (Shimano).[15]

Silent Majority's user killed the Royal Guards of Queens Tang Zhao Li through Sevanti.[18] Sayird, who was being manipulated by Momoze's Guardian Spirit Beast, killed the other two Royal Guards as well as Kurton,[24] resulting in his arrest. After these events, two servants decided to quit.[20] Sandra, one of the maids who chose to stay, was killed by Vincent (the replacement of Queen Unma's guard).[15] After Vincent committed suicide, Room 1014 received four new bodyguards; Babimyna (Vincent's successor),[16] Slakka (Queen Duazul's second Royal Guard), and two personal guards (Sakata and Hashito) from their new ally Prince Zhang Lei to compensate for their shortage of staff.[23]

On the morning of the second day, Room 1014 embraced sixteen new guests (Furykov, Tenftory, Myuhan, Danjin, Maor, Longhi, Satobi, Mushaho, Shedule, Yuhirai, Loberry, Yuri, Illardia, Ladiolus, Belerainte, and Barrigen) for Kurapika's two-week Nen training course.[25] Barrigen is killed on the first day of training by Silent Majority's user.[28]

Queen's GuardsEdit

The Royal Guards sent by the higher queens are mostly used as informants (and sometimes assassins) to find out if the lower queens and princes are plotting a rebellion. A queen gets a true Royal Guard only when a lower ranked queen comes along. Queen Oito, the lowest, had not even had this system explained to her before the departure of the Black Whale.[24]

To further elaborate on the numbers and divisions of the family guard:[22]

  • Neither Prince Benjamin nor Prince Tserriednich have Royal Guards from higher queens since they are the children of the First Queen.[24]
    • Additionally, both decided to solely depend on their personal army rather than recruit Royal Guards from their mother's side. However, Benjamin ended up replacing his personal soldiers with Unma's Royal Guards who were spying on the lower princes, in order to gain information of the Hunters' and Guardian Spirit Beasts' abilities of the princes.
      • It should be noted that Benjamin's personal guards are the only ones who qualify for such task as they are all originally soldiers from the Kakin royal army.[15]
      • Likewise, Princes Camilla, Zhang Lei, Tubeppa, Tyson, and Halkenburg decided to solely depend on their personal armies.
  • Princes Camilla, Tubeppa, Luzurus, and Halkenburg each have one guard chosen by Queen Unma (1st).[24]
    • Only Prince Luzurus has six guards chosen by his mother Queen Duazul (2nd).[22]
  • Prince Zhang Lei has two guards chosen by Queens Unma (1st) and Duazul (2nd).
  • Prince Tyson has three guards chosen by Queens Unma (1st) through Tang Zhao Li (3rd).
  • Prince Salé-salé has four guards chosen by Queens Unma (1st) through Katrono (4th), and three guards chosen by his mother Queen Swinko-swinko (5th).
  • Both Prince Kacho and Prince Fugetsu have five guards chosen by Queens Unma (1st) through Swinko-swinko (5th), and two guards chosen by her mother Queen Seiko (6th).
  • Both Prince Momoze and Prince Marayam have six guards chosen by Queens Unma (1st) through Seiko (6th), and one guard chosen by her mother Queen Sevanti (7th).[24]
    • Queen Sevanti transferred her second Royal Guard from Momoze to Marayam.[20]
  • Prince Woble has seven guards chosen by Queens Unma (1st) through Sevanti (7th) and none chosen by her mother Queen Oito (8th).[24]

It should however be noted that the queens are not allowed to order their Royal Guards to assassinate the princes, seeing that even a queen would be thrown into prison if she issued such an order. The Royal Guards' job is to still protect the lower princes as long as it does not threaten the safety of their client and their prince. In fact, even though King Nasubi himself allowed the succession battle, he has promised no acquittal or pardon for murdering a prince.[24]
