"Love will always triumph!! All the cold, lonely nights and the times you wish you could take back... They will one day become beautiful memories. This is love! The power of love!!"
Tyson enjoys being surrounded by handsome men and selected her bodyguards using that criterion. She is also extremely possessive of them, refusing to let the Hunter Association screen them. While she likes being pampered by her bodyguards, she is very feminine and blushes when they call her "cute". She appears to genuinely cherish them, as seen when she threw Giuliano a surprise party because they would not get to celebrate his birthday before his contract expired. She believes that her teachings based on love can change the world, and, despite being involved in a succession war, she opposes violent action.
Succession Contest arc
Tyson hires Izunavi as her personal bodyguard during the voyage to the Dark Continent. She participates to the ceremony on the eve of the beginning of the expedition and boards the ship, thinking she could win the Succession War while giggling to herself. She then takes part in the formal event with her family and other important guests. Like the rest of her family, she resides in the 1st deck of the ship.
Shortly afterward, her Guardian Spirit Beast becomes active and its spawn ventures into Prince Woble's quarters. Tyson then hears Kurapika's announcement and learns of the existence of Guardian Spirit Beasts. She deduces they were granted to the Princes via the Seed Urn Ceremony and that her siblings must possess them too. She then wonders if hers looks like an angel, and is elated to hear when Izunavi replies they look like fairies and believes that her "fairies" are filling the ship with love. Tyson offers Izunavi and another bodyguard copies of her book, the "Book of Tyson", which she believes to be capable of bringing about world peace. As she dances off with another bodyguard, Izunavi reads the first chapter of the bible and is instantly disgusted by it.
Tyson does not send any of her Royal Bodyguards to study Nen under Kurapika. That night, she asks Izunavi and Giuliano if they have read her book and whether their hearts are being changed. The latter lies, praising the book, whereas Izunavi admits he has not read it yet. Tyson forgives him, stating everyone does things at a different pace. She then guarantees her teachings will awaken a hidden power in the two.
The following morning, she preaches to her employees that love will always prevail, citing verses from her book that a bodyguard recognizes as being from a famous singer. While her Guardian Spirit Beast spawns more Eye-wogs, she leads her employees in a series of exercises. On the day of the banquet, Tyson has all her bodyguards prepare performances, with her personal army singing a cappella and the two Hunters in her employ a rock performance, both of which leave her delighted. Later she is briefly transfixed by Melody's flute.
On the 10th day of the voyage, Tyson organizes a surprise party for Giuliano and prepares the cake herself. When he states it is not his birthday, she replies that they will not get the chance to celebrate it before his contract ends. He is moved by her gesture so she orders him to smile, and to state, her cake is delicious even if the ingredients are not in the correct ratio.

As a prince of Kakin, Tyson holds significant political power and wealth, although not on the level of the elder princes.
Guardian Spirit Beast
Like the rest of her siblings, Tyson received an egg from which a Guardian Spirit Beast hatched to protect her. As a parasitic-type ability, she has no control over it, nor can she see it. The Guardian Spirit Beast is subjected to two rule-like instincts: it is unable to fight other Guardian Spirit Beasts as well as to directly attack the host of one.
