The Kurta Clan elder donned a green-colored Kurta garb with a gold lining. He had a grey beard and gray hair that would come to a spike on the top of his head. He also had a circular scar in the middle of his forehead.
Due to the Kurta Clan's laws, the elder was strict and did not let anyone from the clan go to the 'outside world'. He thought the outside world to be a bad place full of people who would discriminate the Kurta Clan. However, after reading Sheila's book, the elder honestly told Kurapika that it was a good book after all.
The elder was usually pestered by a young Kurapika, who would always ask to go to the 'outside world' and question their clan's rules. One day, the elder had found the book of Sheila and hid it from Kurapika. The young boy approached him and the elder agreed to give Kurapika a test.
Six weeks later, the elder was killed by members of the Phantom Troupe; the message "We reject no one, so take nothing from us" was left on the corpse of the elder, beside the burning Kurta village.
