Pekotero is a person of short stature with a short length haircut. He has animal-like features in his face, wears a hat with bubbles, and is often seeing licking a lollipop.
Pekotero seems to like video games and board games. He may have a laid-back personality since he was one of the few who did not object to receiving Ging's money and in general, never opposed him.
Dark Continent Expedition arc
Pekotero is among the people recruited to help Beyond Netero's Dark Continent Expedition Team. Ging himself later arrives in Beyond's lair and Mascher and Marione challenge Ging, Pariston interrupts and confirms that he is ranked number two in the team. Ging dismisses it and declares that he will be number two henceforth and that he will pay them double of what Beyond paid them.
Ging's arrival and usurpation of the 2# position from Pariston with an incentive of paying double for what Beyond offered them, cause discord within the Expedition Team and they split into two groups: one that will accept Ging's money and one that will not. Pekotero associates himself with the group that will accept Ging's money. In Ging's deduction of the Expedition Team they're all specialists with crucial skills that will help out in the Dark Continent.
Later Pekotero compliments Ging for beating Curly in an ancient linguistics contest, as he is a Varvard professor and then the two play some Mario. It's until Muherr and his men arrive that Muherr tells Pekotero to scram, much to his displeasure. When Ging explained his reason to Muherr for why he'd not only squander his own money, but also withdraw money from the Norwell Fund, is how he's known for his impetuous impromptu remarks that he finds a reason for later, he figured that the group wouldn't be blinded by greed so when they accepted the money they, in turn, accepted him and he also adds that he thinks he feels happy to meet like-minded idiots.
