Sommy is a tall and slender man, with brown messy hair and thick eyebrows. He wears a black long-sleeved shirt with tan pants and is often seen with his monkey hanging onto him.


Sommy is a sly man and is not against using tricks to achieve his goals. He is also condescending, calling Leorio unintelligent when he fell into his and Tonpa's trap.

Sommy is one of the 24 candidates who pass Lippo's 3rd Phase in the Trick Tower and reach the 4th Phase of the exam on Zevil Island.[1] During the 4th Phase of the exam, Sommy proves to be a rather unscrupulous character as he and his monkey ambush Leorio from behind and manage to steal his badge. It's revealed that Sommy partnered up with Tonpa in order to steal Leorio's badge as Tonpa's real target was, in fact, Leorio. In order to trick Leorio Sommy traded the badge number sheets with Tonpa in order to deceive him.[2]

Sommy disparages Leorio's intelligence and furious by the outcome, Leorio chases after Tonpa, as Sommy escapes by climbing a tree branch.[2] Leorio and Kurapika later find Sommy and his monkey to retake Leorio's badge and also the monkey tamer's own badge making him fail the exam in the process.[3]
