Musse (ムッセ, Musse) was a high-ranking soldier in the Royal Army of the Kakin Empire, and one of the personal soldiers of Prince Benjamin. He also was one of Prince Camilla's bodyguards under direct orders from Prince Benjamin.
Musse had a rectangular shaped head and kept his hair neatly combed. His most identifiable trait was his asymmetrical eyes, a sleepy right eye and a piercing left eye. He wore the standard Kakin military attire of zipper jacket, pants, and dark combat boots. He also wore an earpiece in his left ear.
Musse was cold, calculating, and never liked to take on risks, unless with absolute certainty.
As one of the First Prince's soldiers, Musse graduated from Kakin's Royal Military Academy and became a part of his army.
Succession Contest arcEdit
Prince Benjamin orders his fourteen soldiers to both act as bodyguards and spies to all the other princes, and to report any information regarding the Princes' Guardian Spirit Beasts and the Hunters' abilities. Musse eavesdrops on the entire conversation that Queen Duazul Hui Guo Rou and Prince Camilla Hui Guo Rou had at their dinner table with his Secret Window Nen ability. He concludes that their conversation would be circumstantial evidence to use against the prince, so he figures that he has to use his Secret Window to procure viable evidence.
The following day, Musse sees Camilla approaching him and offers to get anything she wants. The Second Prince, however, claims she wants to kill Benjamin and asks Musse whether he wants to join her or die. Musse then warns that this is not his idea of a joke, and that he has recorded their conversation. He prepares to arrest her and states he will open fire if she moves. Undaunted, Camilla advances towards him. Noticing she is in a state of Zetsu, he deduces she is a Nen user with a counteractive-type ability and resolves to attack her, surmising he will either kill her or discover her ability. He shoots her dead, but, unsure whether he has really killed her, he touches her body to activate Secret Window. Immediately afterwards, he is killed by Cat's Name, his body disintegrated and his life energy used to resurrect Camilla, who then pretends to head to Benjamin's quarters to look for him. Musse's Nen ability passes under Benjamin's control.
Right after the trial of Prince Benjamin and Prince Camilla, Prince Benjamin activates Musse's Nen ability on Camilla to spy on her.
Handgun: Musse wields a handgun of unknown brand and caliber. Camilla picked it up after his death, but it was soon confiscated by Benjamin's private army.
Abilities & PowersEdit
Musse was a Nen user, although his superior Balsamilco Might believes him to be less knowledgeable than Hunters in that regard. He has nonetheless enough expertise in the field to be aware of the existence of counteractive-type Nen abilities and to recognize the associated tactics.

|Type: Unknown||Secret Window (裏窓の鳥 Rear Window Bird)|
|Musse's ability allows him to create three owl-shaped constructs referred to as "birds" (念獣, tori; base kanji lit. "Nen beasts") to gather intelligence. One of them can eavesdrop on conversations despite physical barriers, such as doors, and distance, while perched on Musse's shoulder. Another can be applied directly to the target through physical contact: through telepathy, it transmits the target's actions and words to the user, who is the only person capable of seeing it. Only one bird, either of each type or at all, can be in existence at any given time. The first owl-shaped construct appears to be made out of pure aura, possibly implying the ability makes use of Emission. Following Musse's death, this ability was inherited by Prince Benjamin.|
