"Hm? I just want Netero to come back to life and be Chairman once again."
Linne Horsdoeuvre (リンネ＝オードブル, Rin'ne Ōdoburu) is a Double-Star Gourmet Hunter and is currently the oldest member of the Hunter Association. She is also an unofficial survivor of the Dark Continent.
Linne is an old woman of short stature. She has a round face covered in wrinkles. She has short blond hair parted in the middle and light-colored eyes, possibly due to some age-related sickness, since they were dark in her youth. When she was younger, her hair was more flyaway and slightly longer, a bit ruffled at the top and worn in a cowlick.
Linne appears to be a silent person. During the election, the only time she spoke she showed to be uninterested in the ballot and wished for Netero to come back to life. She still seems to be deeply attached to him. In her youth, she demonstrated her zeal and courage by accompanying him to the extremely dangerous Dark Continent.
