Teradein Neutral (テラデイン゠ニュートラル, Teradein Nyūtoraru) was a Double-Star Head Hunter, a Human Resource Specialist,[1] and later the new leader to the reformed Pure Paladin Squad.[2]


Teradein was an older man with well kept gray hair. He was seen wearing a teal suit with a yellow tie.


Teradein had good charisma and leadership skills which were used when he reinstated the Pure Paladin Squad. Though a capable leader, Loupe thought of him as too naive and foolishly honest,[2] which cost him his life at the hands of Hisoka.[3]

Loupe reasoning with Teradien

Loupe convinces Teradein to go with his plan

Sometime after the 5th election, Teradein, Loupe, and Bushidora try to get in contact with the groups of more than 20 Hunters they were in contact with, including the Hunters Latoon and Kenzaki. Bushidora boasts his capable abilities as Captain. When inquired about the votes from Loupe, Bushidora states anyone who's free to vote go and vote as long as Teradein makes the top 4. Although Teradein voices his concern about the prediction of where the votes will go and doesn't want to sway the election through absentees. Loupe suggests they hire a group of Temp Hunters in order to reduce the number of votes for Pariston Hill. Bushidora and Teradein both agree with the plan, unbeknownst to them that it was really a clever ploy to kill off the Temp Hunters by the enemy making them absent in the next election. Loupe also contemplates that Teradein is too honest, while Bushidora is too careless. However after Bushidora and company confront the group they're massacred and Loupe reports this to Teradein. Panic stricken, Teradein is shocked to believe Illumi has dozen of soldiers as well.[2]

Teradein's death

After learning the fate of Bushidora, Teradein makes a solitary announcement explaining that Bushidora and a numerous amount of other people associated with them including 15 Temp Hunters have perished to the enemy. Teradein admits the Pure Paladin Squad lack the power to defeat the enemy currently, but they've been negotiating with Morel to become the new Captain. He then implores the viewers to vote in the next election for him so it can be enough to exceed the 95% turnout and a winner be declared. He also states that he's prepared to publicize the names and abilities of the killers in an effort to prevent further tragedies. This however proves to be a fatal move as after the broadcast was aired, Teradein is killed by Hisoka, while Morel makes his own announcement disproving his claim of ever wanting to join them and mocks his intelligence for declaring they're going to reveal information on the enemy, will get themselves killed.[3]

Teradein is briefly mentioned when Cheadle contemplates that the faction of Teradein's voters will vote for Leorio[9] and again when Pariston calls for an emergency motion to have the Hunter Bylaws revised, as once proclaimed by the late Teradein and Bushidora.[10]
