The Xi-Yu Family (
Succession Contest arc
Members of the Xi-Yu Family boarded the Black Whale in order to secure territory on the New Continent. The boss is a VIP on Tier 1 of the ship. The underlings are scheming to whittle down the numbers of the two rival families, Heil-Ly and Cha-R, until landfall. They control Tier 4 and earn profits from human trafficking as well as the exchange of goods.
After a phone call with Brocco Li, Onior orders his Underboss, Hinrigh Biganduffno, to find Hisoka before the Phantom Troupe. More than 300 members were killed over the next few days, suspicions for which fall on the Heil-Ly Family.
The Xi-Yu Family is the one with the most members in Kakin, and at the start of the voyage, it used to count over 300 of them. It is unknown how many are left.
