- "...Mikazuchi... you can't be telling me... You broke your creed for a woman?"
— A baffled Hollis to Mikazuchi Rei
Hollis is a bulky man with straight black hair left to hang in a bobcut style, strong facial features and a generally stern expression on his face.
Hollis is a generally serious and discerning individual. However, he retains a polite demeanour when talking to others.
Hollis was seen with Erioh and Raian having observed Tokita Ohma's fight against Sekibayashi Jun and then later with the rest of the Kure Clan as Erioh mused on who to send to the Kengan Annihilation Tournament for Under Mount Inc.
On the S.S. Kengan, he and Reiichi retrieved their younger relative Karura and brought her back to their patriarch. With Erioh not happy about Karura's crush on Ohma, Hollis listened as Erioh raged. Later, Hollis sought out Mikazuchi Rei, asking him why he had entered the tournament even though it clashed with the Mikazuchi Clan's creed. Rei avoided the question, and stated that they should settle whether the Kure or the Mikazuchi were better once and for all. However, before the two could fight, Kurayoshi Rino arrived and Rei promptly left, leaving Hollis in disbelief that he had broken his creed for a woman.
On the first day of the tournament, Hollis watched with Horio and Reiichi as Raian took on Mokichi Robinson. After Mokichi smashed Raian into the ground, Hollis then warned his relatives that it would no longer be a fight. He then watched as Raian ruthlessly brutalised and fatally defeated Mokichi.
During the second round of the tournament, Hollis watched the fight between Raian and Ohma with the rest of his clan members, adding to Karura that killing was forbidden between clan members. With Ohma achieving a narrow victory over Raian, Hollis told Karura to stop being immodest and put her clothes back on after she happily exclaimed that Ohma could be her husband, with him musing on the likelihood of Ohma marrying into the family.
After the close of the second round, Hollis, Horio and Reiichi helped to take down Hayami Katsumasa's Guardians during the man's attempted coup d'etat.
On the final day of the tournament, Hollis was present as Ohma continued to receive special treatment from a Kure medical professional.
At some point Kure Erioh announced the death of his successor Kure Rikuto at the hand of thr Worm to Hollis and his other relatives. Seeking veangeance for their relatives, Hollis and the others were told by their grandfather that Rikuto was betrayed by the Westward Faction of the Wu Clan and to kill Edward Wu, its leader, on sight.
Power & Abilities
Hollis is presumably one of the more powerful members of the Kure Clan, to the extent that Katahara Metsudo expected that he, not Raian, would represent their clan in the tournament. While he lacks the raw power that Raian has, it is implied that he is more disciplined and does not resort merely to brute force. His Removal is capable of unlocking 80% of his latent power.
Notes & Trivia
- His most recent worry is his lack of hobbies.
