Teradein, Loupe, and Bushidora inform the group of Hunters about the Needle People

When Killua warns Morel his older brother is going to attack he and Alluka with brain-washed minions Needle People once they reach the hospital where Gon is hospitalized. Morel contacts Teradein, alongside Loupe and Bushidora, for their assistance. The 3 hold a meeting together within the Hunter Association, with a large group of Hunters and plan out a strategy to try and stop Illumi's Needle People.[7] Soon after agreeing to help with the Needle People crisis, Teradein along with Bushidora and Loupe hold a special joint broadcast announcement. In the announcement Teradein praises the late chairman and intends to carry on his ideals and reform the Pure Paladin Squad that Isaac Netero once belonged to.[2]

Loupe makes his statement

Bushidora details Teradein shall act as the Leader, Loupe as the deputy, and he himself shall be captain of the acting forces and as a show of unity he and Loupe will vote for Teradein and implores all who agree with their purposes to vote for Teradein. Loupe then informs the viewers of a related matter in which criminal activity occurring by a certain member of the association. When the results of the election's fifth round for the 13th Hunter Chairman results come in after the broadcast, both Bushidora and Loupe place in 15th and are eliminated for not making the top 8 candidates.[2]

Loupe convinces Teradein to go with his plan

Sometime after the fifth round of the election, Teradein, Loupe, and Bushidora try to get in contact with the groups of more than 20 Hunters they were in contact with, including the Hunters Latoon and Kenzaki. Bushidora boasts his capable abilities as Captain. When inquired about the votes from Loupe, Bushidora states anyone who's free to vote go and vote as long as Teradein makes the top 4. Although Teradein voices his concern about the prediction of where the votes will go and doesn't want to sway the election through absentees. Loupe suggests they hire a group of Temp Hunters in order to reduce the number of votes for Pariston Hill. Bushidora and Teradein both agree with the plan, unbeknownst to them that was really a clever ploy to kill off the Temp Hunters by the enemy making them absent in the next election. Loupe also contemplates that Teradein is too honest, while Bushidora is too careless. However after Bushidora and company confront the group they're massacred and Loupe reports this to Teradein.[2] After Hisoka killed Teradein, Loupe's current status is unknown.[8]
