Lynch is a young woman with shoulder-length fair hair styled so as to spiral into a tube-like shape on the back of her head, with a few locks from her forehead falling on her shoulders and two shorter ones framing her face. She has big eyes and short, thin eyebrows. Her attire of choice consists of a sleeveless top with a high collar. Its lower hem is made out of a poofy material reminiscent of fur, and from its front side departs extra fabric that is gathered and secured to the collar with a brooch, leaving it crinkly-looking. A pair of slippers with a thick sole complete the attire.
Lynch apparently holds herself and the Xi-Yu Family in high regard and does not appreciate being talked down to. She remained perfectly composed first while trying to intimidate and then while beating down a member of the Heil-Ly Family, but she sneered at him after he passed out after only a few blows.
Succession Contest arc
Underboss Hinrigh Biganduffno calls upon Lynch and Zakuro after receiving orders from their Boss, Onior Longbao, to search for Hisoka Morow and kill Heil-Ly Family Boss Morena Prudo on Tier 3. They spot two Heil-Ly Family members in a burger joint; Hinrigh follows the woman, leaving Lynch and Zakuro to confront the man. However, the man distracts the two as a third Heil-Ly member appears and slashes at Zakuro's neck. The first man then kicks Lynch on the stomach, causing her to fall to the ground. However, she looks unfazed from the attack and tells the man should worry about his comrade instead. Zakuro easily subdues his opponent, while Lynch starts asking questions about Heil-Ly. Using her Nen ability, Body and Soul, she learns from the man about the goals of this organization and information about Morena's ability.
Hinrigh later informs his two associates that the Heil-Ly members are registered as civilians in the papers, not as Mafia members. As two soldiers appear to warn them about going to Tier 3 anymore, Hinrigh offers them bribe money and touches their guns. As the three are leaving the floor, the guns turn into snakes and fire at the soldiers, killing them.
Abilities & Powers
As one of Hinrigh's most trusted underlings, Lynch is bound to be a high-profile and very capable figure in the Xi-Yu Family. Her abilities are suited to both fighting and gathering information. She is more durable than a normal person since she took a kick to the belly from a much bigger man without being hurt in the least.
Advanced Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Lynch's fighting style appears to be punch-based, befitting her Nen ability. She can throw a flurry of them with the same arm with enough power to swiftly knock out a weak Nen user without even trying to. To defend she crouched and redirected the attacker's blow, exploiting both their stances to land a powerful punch on vulnerable area thus created.

|Type: Unknown||Body and Soul (体は全部知っている The Body Knows All)|
|Lynch asks the target a question and then proceeds to punch them, which will cause both her and the target to hear the latter's voice giving her an honest answer. Only the two of them can hear it. If she does not change the question after the first strike, subsequent blows result in the target expanding on their previous answer.|
- (To a Heil-Ly member) "So weak! You don't got no Nen? Hey, get up! I can't ask questions if you're unconscious, man!"
- The character's name might be derived from the English verb "to lynch", which means killing someone for an alleged offense without a legal trial.
- Lynch's surname, フルボッコ (Furubokko), is most likely a contraction of フルパワーでボッコボコ (furupawā de bokkoboko)—a Japanese internet slang roughly translatable as "full power[ed] and viciously beating [unilaterally]"—which thematically complements her first name and the way her Nen ability works.
- Lynch's Nen ability is named as '"Mindfulness"—Body and Soul' in the Viz translation.
