"I'll kill you if you lay one finger on my figurines."
Milluki is a seventeen-year-old youth, with short-trimmed middle-parting black hair and black squinty eyes. He is obese due to a lack of physical activities and poor eating habits. He usually wears a dress shirt (pink in the 2011 anime and white in the 1999 anime), white jeans pants (blue track pants with white stripes in the sides, in the 1999 anime), and brown shoes.
Milluki is short-tempered, selfish and rather immature for his age, still referring to his mother and father as mama and papa, and Illumi as Illu-nii or "Big brother Illumi". He often fights with his younger brother, Killua. He is an otaku, who has not left the Zoldyck Family estate since the age of 10. Milluki has a perfidious side, prompting a tourist to refuse Alluka's request with no reason. However, he is also a coward, as he is too afraid of Killua to seriously displease him, or of his father and grandfather to disobey them. Unlike his other siblings, Milluki spends the majority of his time in his bedroom playing with his computers. He takes great pride in his manga, anime, video games, and figurine collection. He even threatened to kill Killua, if he ever laid a finger on his figurine collection.
Zoldyck Family arcEdit
Milluki makes his first appearance in the series smoking a cigar and torturing Killua with a bullwhip in the Zoldyck Estate as punishment for leaving the house, stabbing him, and injuring their mother. He tries to cause Killua physical harm, but to no avail. Killua only sleeps through the whole ordeal and merely sighs this off and playfully greets Milluki, much to his frustration. Milluki then tries to threaten Killua, by saying that he would order the attendants to kill his friends. This only angers Killua, who breaks free one of his arms from confinement, and gives Milluki a murderous stare and claims if he ever harms his friends, he will kill him. Zeno Zoldyck enters the room and tells Killua to go see his father.
Milluki is angered by the way his grandfather treats his younger brother, viewing it as soft. Zeno then asks Milluki about his opinion of Killua's abilities. Milluki admits that Killua is one of the most gifted assassins ever produced in the Zoldyck Family's history, but claims Killua is too emotional because he wants to make friends. Milluki tries to impress his grandfather by claiming that he is also an experienced killer and is capable creating a bomb that can be attached to a mosquito, which explodes when it sucks blood. Zeno admits that Milluki is a genius, but lacks physical fitness, and is too busy coming up with stupid inventions.
Yorknew City arcEdit
While at Whale Island, Killua and Gon are researching for information about Greed Island. However, after numerous attempts, they have no success. Gon mentions if Killua knows someone well-versed about internet and games, thus reminding Killua of his brother. Despite not wanting to ask, he calls the Zoldyck manor and tells Gotoh to transfer the call to Milluki. The butler informs him that Milluki is out of the house, but Killua knows it is a lie and proceeds threatening to smash his brother's figurines.
Milluki threatens Killua about his figurines, before going back to business about Greed Island. Unfortunately, Milluki has no copies, since he was only five years old when it came on sale. He had heard 20,000 pre-orders for 100 units, and couldn't track down the initial buyers, describing the game as "legendary in many ways". He asks Killua about his sudden interest and urges him to forget about it, while he himself has leads now. Killua asks for the leads, but Milluki refuses to share it for free, so Killua offers him a memory card with a save file of the game. He agrees, stating that one of the leads is the Hunters' Website, which he could hack though he doesn't want Hacker Hunters to track him down. He promises to send the URL of the site once Killua has delivered the memory card. His second lead is the Southernpiece Auction in Yorknew City. He shares that there will be dozens of discs to be auctioned. Killua thanks him for the information and states he will send the card through their usual way.
At home, Milluki researches about Greed Island and wants to bring an end to the legend himself. Upon receiving the memory card, he manages to trace the whole program but it doesn't trigger any events. He wonders if either the game was forged or Killua had been tricked. He contemplates into hacking the Hunters' Website and laments that Illumi was not present. Extremely frustrated, he decides to attend the auction in Yorknew. He borrows 15 billion from his father Silva in exchange of killing 15 people. He then autopilots an airship to the Lingon Airport and reminisces of the last time he left the house was when he was 10 years old.
Right after learning about the bounties on the heads of the Phantom Troupe members, Killua mentions something his father once told to his 3 sons and that was to never touch the Troupe as it wasn't worth the money. At the Southernpiece Auction House, Milluki is greeted by Fumi to whom then says he'd like to purchase a catalog. On the night of the rescheduled Underground Auction Milluki appears in a subway in Yorknew City and thinks that he needs food. Milluki's location is shown on a map during the chase for the Phantom Troupe. A couple of days later he's surrounded by a bunch of empty bowls while enjoys a cup sake in a restaurant and wonders what he should have for dinner.
Greed Island arcEdit
During the Southernpiece Auction, Milluki bids against Battera several times, but is unable to win a copy during any of the the auctions. Frustrated that he couldn't win a single copy of the Greed Island game, Milluki binge eats at a local restaurant in Yorknew City and returns home.
13th Hunter Chairman Election arcEdit
Milluki appears again in Illumi's recitation of some events related to Alluka in the past of the Zoldyck Family. One day he took two of his younger siblings Alluka and Kalluto out for a walk and met a photographer. He tricked the photographer into declining Alluka's requests 4 times in a row, which resulted in the death of him and his acquaintances. It is also revealed that he once asked Alluka to kill someone for him to test her ability, and that the last wish made to her before Killua came home was Milluki's, which was the latest computer model at the time.
Later, Milluki, along with Silva and Kikyo, watch Killua and Alluka in her room. Kikyo realizes that Killua has become a good big brother. When her three wishes are done, Milluki regretted for asking a computer. It was too easy, that is why Killua was not harmed in her ability. With this, he earns a sharp glare from his father for taking his previous action toward Alluka too lightly. Silva orders him to recite the rules in Alluka's ability. When Killua decided to leave the mountain with Alluka, Silva disapproves. Killua wished to his brother that if they will not be able to leave within 30 minutes, Kikyo will die. As Kikyo slumps to the floor, Milluki comforts her. Tsubone reveals that Milluki and Kikyo continue to watch the inner mission through her monocle. Milluki expresses his shock when he witnesses Alluka healing Gon back to full health, when his brother Illumi proposes to manipulate both Killua and Alluka, and when he gets teleported through Alluka's power.
Abilities & PowersEdit
Milluki like the rest of his family was raised to be an assassin from birth, and has trained in the art of assassination. However, unlike his siblings he lacks physical strength but makes up for it with his brain power since he is the only tech-savvy member in the family and the bridge between them and conventional technology, which can be a reason why Silva, Kikyo, and Zeno tolerate him. He seems to be proficient in torture, as he was seen hitting Killua with a whip, but not for long due to exhaustion. Milluki is also known to be a genius at programming and hacking. Still, he occasionally acts with naivete.
Skilled Hacker and Programmer: Milluki is a talented hacker. He tried to reproduce the game Greed Island using the saved data copied from a memory card left by Ging, but was not able to run it on any of his computers. This led him to the idea of hacking into the Hunter website but he never went through with it because of the risks.
Skilled Inventor: He claims to have invented a micro-sized bomb that can be placed on a mosquito that explodes upon biting the prey for assassination purposes. However, the bomb's explosion is only as big as a firecracker and it's pretty much impossible for a mosquito to bite the target that you want. Milluki also crafted special 50 kilogram (approx. 110 lbs.) metallic battle yo-yos that Killua wields as a weapon.
Milluki is known to be a Manipulator. Although he has yet to display any Nen abilities, his reaction to seeing the aura unleashed by Nanika while healing Gon seems to suggest that he has at least been awakened to Nen.
- (To Zeno) "He's absolutely no good as an assassin. He's too erratic. He runs off, he makes friends... What kind of person is that to head a family of world-renowned assassins?"
- (To Zeno) "As for me, I'll take out anyone, anytime, for the right price."
- In the official databook, his name is also spelled as "Myllki Zaoldyeck".
- Despite being at home most of the time for nine years long in isolated environment, he has no problem navigating his way in the outside world.
