I had a give and take relationship with him previously Illumi is enlisting the help of Hisoka in the plan to kill Alluka and possibly Killua. racial background, country of origin, sexual identity and/or personal relationships. To learn more, check out our Terms of Service and Privacy. Illumi would call Hisoka an ally, and Hisoka probably would call 'give and take' vibe to their relationship they mainly help each other out.
Illumi proceeds to explain that: Hisako signed a contract for me to kill him. So seriously did we take our desire to kill each other. As an engagement ring, Hisako gave me a prenup agreement that should he die prematurely that I would still get the reward.
When did Hisoka and Illumi get engaged? Why does Illumi want Gon dead? Those are the sort of questions that bother me. Luckily, we have some eye-opening revelations about Illumi and Hisoka which help to fill in the blanks with large parts of the story, especially the long running and subtle plot concerning Killugon. Let us start with a detailed review of Manga Chapter Taking place on a huge boat with thousands of people aboard bound for the Dark Continent.
The Phantom Troupe is on the trail of Hisoka, who after quitting the Spiders, cheated death after a fight with Chrollo, took to hunting the members of the Troupe. The Troupe intends to kill Hisoka before he can kill them. Amongst other unclear goals. In the scene in question, the Troupe is in a large eatery on one of the lower levels.
They sit around a choice table, where Chrollo decides this is a good opportunity for the newest members, Illumi and Kalluto to introduce themselves and explain their connection to Hisoka. The dialog is as follows: A group of mafia guys approach the table that apparently belongs to them.
The Spiders ignore them. The oldest son of the Zoldyck family. My younger brothers are Killua and Kalluto. I had a give and take relationship with him previously… But it seemed one of us was going to kill the other in the end. Hisoka had contracted me to kill him.

For our engagement ring, he gave me a prenup where if he dies, I still collect my reward. Both he and I are very serious about this. That is why I do not know his location. Was Illumi lying to the Troupe? So, what does this soliloquy tell us about Illumi?
Previously it had been assumed that Illumi and Hisoka were both bisexual and merely friends, perhaps friends with benefits. Yet here we have reason to believe they were much closer, even romantically involved. Talk of engagements and prenups suggest they are both gay. How do we know this? These are the most skilled fighters, adept killers, experts in deception.
Even as skilled as Illumi is, should the Troupe decide to act as one and kill him, Illumi would have no chance of defending himself. Illumi might be able to lie to them by omission, but to tell them a bold face lie such as his relationship with Hisoka would be suicide.

What does Kalluto tell us? That brings us to Kalluto. Kalluto who never got a chance to introduce himself does provide us with loads more information about Hisolumi. If you have access to the manga, study the two pages in this scene carefully; notice anything about Kalluto while Illumi revealed his secret?
And this tells us something. Given that Illumi is telling the absolute truth, this information is not news to Kalluto. Kalluto has known for some time about the relationship between Illumi and Hisoka.
Kalluto has probably known the two were an item as far back as the Yorknew arc, when Kalluto assisted Illumi in infiltrating the Troupe in order for Illumi to stand-in for Hisoka. For starters Kalluto is the youngest of the Zoldyck brothers. It stands to reason that as the youngest he would generally be the last to know about family business, relationships, politics, etc.
Since Kalluto does know about Hisolumi it's a good bet that the rest of the Zoldyck clan knows as well. But when did this happen? Towards the end of that arc Manga Ch. Then Illumi makes mention that he and Hisoka have not known each other very long.
This suggests perhaps a year or two at most. However, Killua was not at home during this time and so even now probably is unaware of this relationship. But when exactly did the engagement and prenup happen? If it took place during a previous arc, the most probable moment was this: Illumi is enlisting the help of Hisoka in the plan to kill Alluka and possibly Killua.
Given the nature of the situation and the elegant setting, and the dire conversation topic, it seems fitting that either before or after this scene the marriage proposal would have taken place and the prenup too.
At least this is the most likely time it could have happened in a pre-Dark Continent arc. Yeah… Illumi gets Killua to admit what he wants is a friend and that Gon is his friend. Killua denies this, refuses to submit to his assassin training, which prompts Illumi to threaten to go after Gon and kill him on the spot. Things happen and Illumi eventually relents.
Killua in a near psychotic state ends up killing one of the other candidates, doubtless under the control of Illumiand leaves the Exam in humiliation to return home.
Okay, so now the big question. Was it just a passing threat in the heat of the moment to gain total control of Killua?
Illumi confides in Hisoka that he believes Gon is a threat and is determined to eliminate Gon immediately. Hisoka warns Illumi that Gon belongs to him and that Illumi is not to harm him. It was good that Illumi relented. But why exactly does Illumi want or need Gon dead?
Why does Illumi see Gon as a threat? It all comes back to the big Hisolumi reveal in Dark Continent arc. This engagement of Illumi and Hisoka proves the two are in a romantic relationship and therefore must be gay.
Remember who is the chosen son, the future patriarch of the Zoldyck dynasty? The prince with the silver gene. The one who has received the highest training, has the biggest obligation pinned on him? That would be our boy Killua.

The one who has no chance of being the favored Zoldyck in the years to come? That would be Illumi. Illumi does have a rather large responsibility on his head. Provided Illumi does his duty, and that Killua toes the line and becomes the Zoldyck assassin and patriarch they need, Illumi is allotted a certain amount of freedom. Freedom to indulge in personal interests including dabbling in romance. That Illumi should take an interest in Hisoka, an expert killer is perfectly fine.
The fact they are a gay couple is no matter for the Zoldycks, this is partially because Illumi does not have the rare silver gene, which is why he was not selected as the favored son. In short, there is no expectation for Illumi to pass his family lineage onto the next generation of Zoldycks. You know what happened after that? The two brothers spent a lot of time together, traveling, killing, training, killing, brain washing, killing, honing their skills.The Dynamic of Hisoka and Illumi - Hunter x Hunter
Sometime during those years, Killua must have said or done something to cause Illumi to suspect he might be gay. Who knows what it might have been, doubtless something tiny and Killua had no notion of the concept himself, but such a thing is entirely possible.
Illumi could not take the chance of Killua being gay. He wears face paint: In the 13th Hunter Chairman Election arc, Hisoka is shown wearing two earrings with ornamental hearts. In his first appearance in Nippon Animation's anime series, Hisoka's hair is blue. After a revamp of the show it was replaced with a red, almost neon pink color to be in accordance with the manga. In Madhouse's adaptation, Hisoka has red hair and light amber eyes.
During the Yorknew City arc in the manga, Hisoka dyes his hair light green. These dynamic variations in appearance illustrate the complexity of his character. Hisoka is portrayed as entirely self-serving, self-absorbed, and selfish; he does whatever he likes as long as it pleases him in some way. His insatiable love for spilling the blood of powerful fighters in combat and his enjoyment of extreme pain while doing so fuels his seemingly sadomasochistic desires.
In order for them to grow to their full potential so as to improve the pleasure of killing them laterHisoka allows the main protagonists to live in situations wherein he is easily able to kill them. Likewise, he grows excited to meet any new people he deems worthy of fighting or anyone with potential to be a good fighter and entertain him in the future. With his manipulative and self-centered nature, Hisoka is essentially a sociopath.
While he does like Gon, Killua, and many others, he has stated that for him what is valuable one day could easily become trash the next, and he will not hesitate to kill anyone should they not meet his standards.
He does not care for what has happened in the past, as he is only interested in what could be amusing to him in the future or present. While Hisoka's nature tends to be malevolent, he isn't an indiscriminate killer. He has no problems killing anyone regardless of age or sex; however, he only kills people who are in his way or those he deems "worthy. He even assists the protagonists if there is "fun" in doing so or if it will make them stronger leading to a more entertaining fight in the future.
Above all else, Hisoka cares only about having fun and a good challenge which may or may not involve killing people. He has a nasty habit of skipping out on Spider meetings. Hisoka could be described as pansexualbut in a very deranged way: Hisoka often exhibits androgynous characteristics throughout the series, manifested in his wearing of "women's" shoes and using an alluring speech style typically reserved for females in Japanese.
In the manga, he ends nearly every sentence with a suit symbol.
