Succession Contest arcEdit
As Tenftory waits within Prince Woble's quarters to learn about Nen, he remembers his order by Prince Zhang Lei to keep tabs on who gets in contact with Kurapika. He thinks that the people he needs to pay close attention to are the bodyguards associated with the First and Fourth Princes. Tenftory listens to Kurapika's lecture about the conditions of him teaching Nen to everyone and as he does, Loberry one of Prince Kacho's maids points out there's someone in the crowd and after she does Barrigen one of Prince Marayam's bodyguards dies to a small pack of snakes. Following the murder, Kurapika tells his students to decide whether to stay or leave. They all remain and he teaches them his first exercise. He then partakes in the Nen training, until the end of the training session.
The following day, Tenftory returns to Room 1014 for Kurapika's lecture. He does not intervene when Maor and Satobi accuse Kurapika of being behind the attacks after Myuhan's death. On the 7th day of the voyage, Satobi is still taking part in Kurapika's Nen training. Like everyone else, he begins to have doubts about the training, since they always repeat the same exercise. The following day, he is amazed by Kurapika's Water Divination. It is predicted that Tenftory will be the last to perform it, so he waits in the hall until the end of the session while Ladiolus, Maor, Yuri and Satobi are called one by one to the main bedroom supposedly to take the test.
After he is initiated too, Tenftory reports back to Zhang Lei, stating that he feels stronger and that the way he perceives the world has changed. He praises the majesty of his prince's Guardian Spirit Beast, who offers him one of the coins conjured by the Nen beast as a reward. At Coventoba's request, he shows him the coin.
